Review: Tumble Audio has been providing us with seriously killer bass music for a few years now, and here they celebrate reaching their tenth release by recruiting Roadman Joel to curate a selection of the kind of seriously heavy tunes you might expect to hear at one of their many label nights. There's a whopping 18 tracks on here covering a wide spectrum of British urban dance music, including Majora's ridiculously amazing tribal UKF monster "T&C's", A Motion's ghetto 2-step hybrid "Back In Your Love" and Sentiment's wobble-heavy tropical jam, "Change You".

from $1.49
Review: Just recently, Midlands bass duo Hybrid Theory dropped their anthemic "That's What It Is". Now they're keeping the heat on with a left hook of a follow-up EP of remixes. There are four interpretations here - a grimy garage growler by Flava D, Kissy Sell Out delivers a dirty house grinder laced with a techy fizz and Grime wraps things up with a deep and low urban snarler.

Played by: HxdB, Majora
Review: Label regular Killjoy teams up with Lenkemz for a new track and selection of remixes on the incorrigible Tumble Audio. The original mix of "Wesley Snipes" features the grimey vocal talent Slick Don on the mic, and you also get an instrumental to tool up into your DJ set. Majora steps up for a funky house remix compete with gargling bassline and a whole artillery of choppy percussion shots, whereas Spooky goes in with some killer half-step vibes reminiscent of something on Deep Medi or played by Mala or Coki, for that matter. Check it - essential doesn't even cover it.

Review: Rising Leeds producer Joedan has announced that this is the last we'll hear of him until sometime in 2015, when big things are expected upon his return. In the meantime we have The Drop EP to keep us occupied so that's good news for bass lovers everywhere. There are four sizzlers here that cover wobbly 4x4 on the title track, sultry minimal house on "Kind Of Grooves", dreamy space garage with extra bounce on "Crooked" and seductively deep UKF on "Dial Tones". That's all the bass we need for Christmas!

from $1.49
Review: We last heard from this New Yorker back in June, collaborating with MDME, now he's got round to rustling up a new solo release in the form of these three tracks, all of which dwell firmly on the dark side. "Angel" kicks things off with some brainmelting tech-hop (remixed into some brilliantly evil deep dubstep by Archive), "Control" samples Hot Streak's breakdance classic "Body Work" and welds it to some sinister tribal beats (remixed into some peak time wobbly bassline by Flava D) and "Grim Reaper" rounds things up with a relentless carnival-fuelled assault.

Return To Air - (5:02) 100 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Undoubtedly the most popular artist on the ever increasing Ninja Tune roster, it's always great to see some new material from the studio of Si 'Bonobo' Green, especially as he's spent the best part of two years touring his fifth studio LP. "Flashlight" is sadly not a cover of the Funkadelic classic of the same name, but it does demonstrate Bonobo at the top of his powers, weaving together an intoxicating melange of garage-brushed rhythms, ocean deep basslines, cooing vocals and compulsive textures. It's complemented by two tracks that draw Bonobo closer to the dancefloor; the playful, broken rhythms of "Pelican" contend for top spot with "Return To Air" which has a touch of the Jamie xxs to it.

Tired Of Running - (6:21) 87 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Allmostt continues his nomadic flex with a new EP for the 877 label. His music can only be described as a hybrid of UK bass and funky tech house a-la Claude Von Stroke, and this latest four-tracker might well be some of his most refined work. "Push" would work on any floor and in any kind of set, whether techno or dubstep, but our favourite cut has to be "Obessive Compulsive" for its choppy percussion twists and snappy vocals - the kinda banger Boddika would deliver in a set. Be sure to also check "Neurotic" for its '90s vibes thanks to those prophetic vocals...and those kick drums!

from $1.49
Played by: Jamie George, Zed Bias
Review: All-round bass legend Zed Bias touches down on Black Butter with a hot new single backed by a rather killer selection of remixes. Title track "Shizam" features the vocals of Stylo G and Scruffizer, and it's a purely grimed-out affair from start to finish, with a heavy touch of percussive action. Among the three remixes, grime legend Plastician makes a rare appearance with a reinterpretation that takes us back to FWD's early days - that bassline is a true slasher in every sense of the word.

St Sinclair - (3:51) 122 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Martyn's 3024 label returns with an extensive collection of works from rising UK house man Leon Vynehall. Originally debuting on Well Rounded Records' Housing Project sub-label back in 2012 with the Mauve EP, Vynehall has since become one of the UK's most in-demand of the new wave of young house producers, releasing subsequent records for George Fitzgerald's ManMakeMusic and Will Saul's Aus as well as collaborating with blog house survivor A1 Bassline under the Laszlo Dancehall alias. Having debuted on 3024 with last year's Open platter, Vynehall is back with Music For The Uninvited, a seven-track collection of tracks supposedly inspired by rides to school in his mother's car as a child in which he would listen to "mixed hip-hop, funk & electro tapes, Janet Jackson albums, Style Council and Stiff Little Fingers". Whilst there is plenty of the individual house sound Vynehall has developed on offer here ("It's Just (House Of Dupree)" is a certified jam) there are also more tranquil moments to bask in such as "Inside The Deku Tree" and "St Sinclair" which bookend this excellent release.

from $1.49
Review: Jim Coles has previously spoken about this second Om Unit full length being "a nod to the sound" of his "teenage self". Given the fact that he's rediscovered his jungle and hip hop roots in recent years, it's an accurate description. The fact that he's also mined Goldie's sample archive to help create the sound of Inversion is also telling. While it's not a straightforward jungle set - there are plenty of wonky moments, skewed downtempo interludes, footwork influences and trips into expansive IDMterritory - the skittish breaks, foreboding noises and murky textures all scream classic D&B. It adds a little spice to an already excellent set, delivering a range forward-thinking tracks with their roots firmly in the past.

Review: Always committed to providing a platform to the boundary pushers in the London bassweight continuum, Keysound serves up another choice collection that draws on regular contributors and fresh faces for a range of styles that all hang together neatly under the Keysound banner. Logos provides a little ambient reflection, while label bosses Dusk + Blackdown head into stripped down malice on "Wot Do You Mean?! (Dub)". Wen is even more minimalistic on "It's A Lot", while Facta eschews his usual punchy fare for a lilting melodic piece entitled "Quince". Ballistiq Beats gets a tidy garage re-rub from Sully, and Etch drifts off into dreamlike breakbeat. At every turn this compilation oozes class, showing there's much more to all these artists than straight up sub-busters.

Review: Back after an absence of well over a year, the deep and moody Proxima is back in bass business, this time courtesy of Rinse. The beats are still around the 140 mark and the mood is still deep: "Trapped" kicks things off with some dark alleyway vibes - all shifty beats and general eeriness, "Fate" soon picks up the pace with some seriously anxious drum patterns and sweaty-palms-synth-pads and lastly the EP's heaviest track, "Fallout", is full of taut, writhing mechanical snarls. Still sinister, still fresh!

Review: The powerhouse partnership of Champion and Mele get lively with two sterling slices of busted-beat naughtiness. There's a great sense of early 2000s, formative dubstep/dark garage at play as the pair lay down a series of angular breakbeats and sheet metal, groaning bass. "Get Down" is all about the subverted two-step, all slinky and off-beat. "Radio Babylon", meanwhile, speaks a similar language while teasing deftly with a Meat Beat Manifesto sample. Both absolutely kill it.

Review: 2nd Drop is a label that exclusively trades in quality; from the peerless 21st century Afro-bass sounds it promotes, to its darkly captivating artwork by Jimmy Turrell. This latest release from Pedestrian and Jasperdrum is no different, with "Origins" being nearly eight minutes of eerie, minimal, shuffle-house punctuated with all kinds of creepy jungle-at-night noises lunging in from all directions. Their hugely popular anthem, "Kalakuta" also reappears here, this time full of suspended tension in a sparse slo-mo trap style remix by Alix Perez.

Bad Kingdom (Robag Wruhme 4/4 edit Mit Xomlopp remix Schwanz-014) - (10:33) 118 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Here's something of a treat for Moderat fans: a stonking new remix of II album favourite "Bad Kingdom" by German veteran DJ Koze. There's much to admire about his bumping, floor-friendly reinterpretation, which retains the original's woozy, hazy vibe - and distinctive vocals - while gently leading it further towards the dancefloor with arms raised skywards. It's melodic, quietly uplifting and decidedly heavy, even if the percussion does shuffle rather than bang. The (virtual) flipside offers another treat in the shape of an extended 11-minute version of Robag Wruhme's swinging, string-laden re-edit of the same track, which first appeared (in shortened form) on January's "Tour Edition" reissue of II.

Review: Having struggled to find his niche during the early part of his career, things started looking up for Randomer when he popped up on Numbers back in 2011 with the bombastic blends of acid house and techno that made up his impressive Real Talk EP. Since then, he's impressively flitted between techno and bass music, and here delivers an all-out techno assault for Clone's occasional Basement Series. There's a real no-nonsese feel to the relentless kick-drums and cut-up vocal samples of "Stupid Things I Do", which comes in "New School" and "Old School" mix formats (the latter including some looser techno breakbeats, and thus being our pick). The EP also includes two formidable percussion workouts, which deliver driving drums and booming basslines.

Review: The vocal sample from Tuff Culture's "Africa" will be familiar to any Chemical Brothers fans out there who know the track "It Began In Afrika" (originally sampled from Jim Ingram's "Drumbeat"). The lead cut here is a great tune which combines baile funk with splashes of dubstep and skipping house. "Bye Your Side" is the standout garage track on this EP, while "You & Me" and "Touched VIP" are deep, bass driven and flecked with flashes of cooling chords.

from $1.49
Review: Gage burst onto the scene earlier this year with a pair of killer grime-meets-techno tools on Crazylegs, and here he returns with ballroom vocalist Kevin JZ Prodigy for what is undoubtedly one of the label's best tracks to date. Gage's production is some of his tightest yet, offering the kind of track that will no doubt be getting more than a few rewinds, but it's Prodigy's vocal gymnastics that steal the show in what must be one of the year's most impressive performances. Essential!

Quick-firing percussion pellets, shuffled house beats and swirling concoctions of bass delight throughout. "Dizzy" is our personal favourite but be sure to check Arctic Shadow and Jook10 on remix duties for the title track.

Review: On 2012's Luxury Problems, Andy Stott delivered his most rewarding work yet - an impeccable exploration of the twin attractions of lightness and darkness that was near impossible to pigeonhole. Faith In Strangers, that album's belated follow-up, is similarly minded. Peppered with audible references to his many inspirations - field recordings, found sounds, dub techno, IDM, ambient, post-dubstep and trip-hop, in particular - it's a set that quietly drifts between sludgy dreaminess and pin-sharp late night horror. As such, it's an inspired set, with Stott's use of odd instrumentation and the evocative vocals of Alison Skidmore significantly enhancing the experience.

Newun - (4:19) 61 BPM
from $1.49
Review: It's been a rapid rise for Paleman, conquering Swamp 81 in a short space of time and getting snapped up for remixes by all manner of respected entities, and here Calum Lee kicks up the dust on 81 with the anthemic parp of "Beezeldub". With those plastic horn blasts calling out, any dance worth its salt is going to lose its proverbials, and that's before the stripped and weighty core of the track kicks in. It's a cut perfectly toned and buffed for maximum club response, and it sits in a neat contrast to the more esoteric fare of "Newun". Where the lead track demands attention from the off, this second jam snakes in with a tricky rhythm and plenty of oddball, dubby effects for a more subtle and largely percussive effect.

from $1.49
Review: Following the sad news of Rashad's passing, this latest single from the ever-productive Addison Groove takes on a more poignant nature as the late footwork legend guests on the second track. That the track is called "U Been Gone" only adds to the emotional weight of it, not to mention the wistful keys and yearning vocal lick. Elsewhere Addison Groove is on typically fiery form, from the rave baiting whiplash of "Push It" to the weighty bassbin busting badness of "Dat Ass". The samples are beyond cheeky in their recognisability, and it matters not a jot when the music kicks as hard as this.

from $1.49
Review: Bear Fresh have been pushing their more deep house-influenced side of late, but now they're revisiting their more urban-orientated "City" series to redress the balance. This second volume keeps the vibes going with nine killer tracks, highlights of which include the wobble-heavy stepper "Crazy Hype" by Crown Duels & Resonate, the apocalyptic 4x4 meanness of "Crater Face" by Pelikan, the tremor-inducing low end of future-laser-house belter, "Olisha's Call" by Scullious & One Over and, the frankly nuts, military bombardment of "Full Tilt" by Kiri & Nab.

from $1.49
Review: After a quirky low-beat skit-style intro, the Frothy fella bubbles over with "Cosmo". A fly-by breakbeat bust up. Reminiscent of Tyrant circa 2000, there's a really grittiness to the groove. Dig deeper for bleepy two-step ("Dip Dive"), rolling old school amens ("Tools") and a slinky bongo roller that nods respectfully at Jaydee's "Plastic Dreams" ("Live Notes"). We end with "Body X JD", a steaming slab of 23rd century garage. Handshake what your mamma gave you.

Words That We Both Know - (1:03) 132 BPM
from $1.49
Played by: Haioka
Review: It's been a while since the last fresh outing of James Blake material, and he surfaces on his plenty active 1-800 Dinosaur imprint with some typically esoteric material that confirms he still exists in his own unique sound world. "200 Press" is a track that evolves with elegance, with an electro thread powering the track while around drift wild bass notes, displaced vocals and occasional chimes, and still it grows into a spellbinding crescendo infected with ghetto swagger. "200 Pressure" takes a more obscure and yet bombastic approach with strange punk inflections, lurid synth intervals and a lot of found sound disturbance. "Building It Still" by way of comparison lets a little of the more classical musicianship sneak in, leaving odd poem "Words That We Both Know" to round off the EP on an ambiguous but personal note.

Review: Coming through with their third release for Black Butter Records, the My Nu Leng duo drop a monster tune that's been getting some serious attention by the likes of Annie Mac, Cameo and the whole UK radio entourage. Shredded beats and sunken crystal-like synths dominate the equation to form a proper head-turner of a tune, while original badman Fox rides all over the vocals in fine style. Check it...

Review: It's refreshing to see Disco Cakes add a little something different into the mix of their mash-ups: bass! So in a bold fusion of old and new we get the likes of Deekline & Hotline Zero's "Pump Up The Volume" which takes M/A/R/R/S' 80s hit and marries it to a fizzy Drop It Like It's Hot hip-hop jam. Slynk also has a stab at "Top Rankin" which takes Althea & Donna's perennial 70s party anthem and successfully welds it to some steely big beat sounds and finally Hotline Zero's remix of "All Gravy" gets all tropical bass on our case.

Review: More low end fighting talk from Lisbon leftfield kings Enchufada. The Clerk ignites the taper with the hypnotic, body-slamming charms of "Cairo" before Robs & Duke get lively with a guitar-twanging tribal stepper "Bring The Fire". With tempo, pace and attitude fully locked from the off, we're sucker-punched by the punctuated percussion of "Helicopter Riddim" and jabbed by other-worldly flute wheezes on "Moombasa" before laying down gracefully for the full count with "Sexton". An enchanting pipe blend over a slo-mo moombahton, if you're going to be knocked out, make sure you're knocked out by the best. Genuinely unique.

Review: Steel City producer Deadbeat may not be releasing tunes on labels with such irreverent titles as Off Me Nut Records, but he's still bringing the bass like no other. The "Good 2 To Me EP" is pure 3am, hands-in-the-air fodder and we're not complaining. There are three tracks here covering rolling, ravey, bassline ("Good To Me"), Deep wobble nastiness ("Wheel It Up) and dubby brain-melt 4x4 ("Clear MY Mind"). Also featured is Deadbeat's heavy-as-you-like hyper remix of Killjoy's "Nothing Sweet".

Review: Sheffield's Chip Butty label returns with its latest unmissable dose of bass, with label owner Dr Cryptic delivering three tracks alongside another trio of low-end heaters from Dr Oscillator. Brilliantly titled the Dr Who? EP, it sees Dr Oscillator deliver the digidub-flecked bass of "BIG", the frantic sub workout of "Cocaine" and dark, sinister stripped-back sounds of "Mandem". Dr Cryptic's contributions are on the much ruder end of the bass scale, with "I Don't Care", a peak time slice of 4/4 featuring red alert sirens, "Rudebwoi" a vortex of churning bass and killer vocals and "Gibbo" another tune guaranteed to mash up the dance with its frequencies. Essential stuff!

Review: Kevin "The Bug" Martin and Dylan "Earth" Carlson have finally teamed up for a collaborative release on the UK's mighty Ninja Tune. To be honest, both the artists and the label have all achieved institutional status by now, so you know its highly recommended from the onset. Each artist has been involved in many scenes and genres over the years, ranging from ambient metal to minimal drones and experimental two-step and "Boa" is exactly that, a weird and wonderful mixture of styles and influences. "Boa" and "Cold" share a slow tempo and a set of heavy, metallic guitars weaving over desolate soundscapes and rattling percussion. This is cinematic music to say the least.

from $1.49
Review: Swiftly becoming a household name in UK bass, My Nu Leng have demonstrated nothing but class and creativity since day one. Signing to Black Butter has next-levelled them in the way they deserve, and they've just commissioned three powerful reversions of their material for the summer. UKG don Zed Bias has long since been an advocate of "Masterplan", and here he subverts it into a bashy, thundering blend that makes the original look like a lullaby. Next up, Cause & Effect's Lorenzo gets twisted on "You've Been Gone" by way of a paranoid nagging riff. Finally one of D&B's most respected producers Break takes "Knowing" into the 170 pastures it's always deserved to be in. Enveloping bass, resoundingly loose and organic drums and heaps of space... Just like My Nu Leng themselves, Break has demonstrated class and creativity since day one. What a release!

Review: Whilst Jack Adams has been producing for a few years under the Mumdance guise, he really seems to have narrowed on a sound lately that's resulted in some truly dynamic club music. After hook-ups with Logos and Tectonic boss Pinch and a superb Twists & Turns mixtape, Mumdance surfaces on the Rinse label with Take Time, a killer release that really sets out the sound he's pushing right now. If you are down with the whole post-Classical Curves grime meets sound design approach that's been bubbling away you will love this, as Mumdance lays down some mind crushing arrangements for Novelist and Spyro to spit lines over. "The Sprawl" is a real highlight and features on the forthcoming mix CD Mumdance has done with Pinch.

Review: Sounds Of Sumo is fast becoming a prized name within the bass music spectrum, and it's thanks to the label's ability to find new and exciting producers from all over the globe. Majora, a newcomer with just a string of releases to his name, drops two hot new floor-nfillers backed by a even more scorching selection of remixers. "Exactly" and "Don't Watch" are both at the crossroads between house and bass, where Majora proceeds to deliver a slap-funk 4/4 groove over gnarly percussion shots. Over to the remixes, Flava D, Tanka and Boean all have a go at "Exactly", the former of whom gives us the standout, a gnarly, shuffling garage tune for the peak-time hours.

The original "What I Need" is a breaky garage belter boasting big soulful diva vocals and comes courtesy of the more sensibly named Project Allout. There's also five big remixes to work with here, the best of which include the brain melting 4 x 4 wobble of Mr Dubz workout, Moony's melodic 2-step and the super-dark AT mix.

Review: Boxed resident JT The Goon returns with another Oil Gang plate, and this time arrives with Murlo in tow for some solo and collaborative action across four tracks. JT The Goon offers "Garden of Eden", a half-step piece of grime with big strings and heartwrenching square waves, while Murlo takes things on a more minimalistic tip with "Cold Stroke". Murlo also offers a remix of JT The Goon's "Twin Warriors", but it's "Plume" that offers the standout moment, a collaborative track with an anthemic lead.

Booty Call EP by Allmostt on Artifice Cue Track
Dial Tone (Pelikann remix) - (4:00) 65 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: Deep bass and jacking mutations abound as Allmost leaps from Black Butter to Artifice with mischievous abandon. Sitting somewhere between Dirtybird and Clek Clek Boom, each of these three cuts are designed solely for dancefloor fun. From the quirky Von Stroke style mangled modem Q&A on the Monki-supported "Dial Tone" and the demonic, down-pitched vocal bubbles of "Booty Call" to the gritty teeth-baring 4/4 dubstep flavour of "Janet Jackson", Allmost is out to have a good time, and he insists you join him. For good measure he's also brought his mate Pelikann along for the ride. Driving a steppy, twisted future grime / mutated house blend, it's very reminiscent of My Nu Leng, which is definitely no bad thing.

Review: With an ever-strong commitment to their very unique brand of modern electronic dance music, the Night Slugs posse are rounded up once again for a stocktake on the follow up to the successful Night Slugs Allstars compilation. It's only with a chance to reflect such as this you can appreciate the range that falls neatly into the Night Slugs remit. At one turn you can be doused in the blinding sunshine of Girl Unit's cheery electro as on "Ensemble (Club Mix)", or at the next be confronted with the staggered stab frenzy of Helix's somewhat ironically named "Drum Track". Try reaching them without being thrown by Bok Bok's 31st century grime madness or Lil Silva's hyper-kinetic throwdown of mechanical psychedelia and you might have a chance of getting a handle on the label as a whole.
