Review: The S.O.B.A.D crew descend on Nottingham with a whole armoury of hybrid bass/beat hurters. Sly One do all the driving as "My Name" slaps with a UK take on juke beats as a fork-tongued lava rap from TK Wonder whips up a dramatic frenzy. "TMB" sees the trio taking us on an even techier tip with its loopy, hypnotic vocal loop while crew mates Distro & Archive give UK funky a dark, demented update for today's paranoid times. Final S.O.B.A.D member Bromley winds down the trip by completely stripping "My Name" back down to a classic electro breaks groove. Block rocking.

Review: It's a new year, and it's time for some new imprints. That's the way we operate. Jelly Bean Farm is among the labels to launch in 2017 but, while others would think of pacing themselves with a debut EP, these guys have gone and dropped a whole compilation of new, unforgiving bass science from all corners of the extended genre. There are twelve killer cuts to choose from here, all from emergent talents, and we've got our eyes set on a number of them. Hypho's "Majikk" is a glorious neo-grime workout that stretches the genre to the very limits, "Pistol Signal" from Opus is a bubbling, potent new strain of hydro-phonic dubstep, PAN:INC's "Freight" is the sort of techno that any bass-boy dreams at night, and Sensei's "Reed" manages to blur the most daring elements of jungle and minimal techno together as if they were made to be one and one. Check it all out, though, this is a true goldmine of all things bass-oriented. Watch out for more Jelly Bean Farm gear.

Review: Rebearth is a new label specialising in bass, bassline, UK garage plus 'more', it claims. For their first release, Birmingham based producer Bassboy has been making waves for years, according to the label, and has been pioneering the bassline sound with his heavy basslines (naturally!) and ear for infectious, off-kilter drum grooves. On "Boom" he teams up with Chester's Blaq Max to rework a classic Lil Nasty vocal sample into a street level dancefloor joint that is truly fierce and bombastic.

Review: Footsie... It's been too long. Almost three years since his last King Original beat collections, the Newham General bumps back into your dublist with another slew of cold originals. Easing into the fray with restrained moody atmospheres on "God Like" and the chase-sequence, 808 smoking "Brake Light" Footsie gradually takes us deeper and deeper into his psyche... His contemplative side with the tripped out ricochet tones on "Smoke Ring" and spooky misty murkery of "Smoke Ring", his curveball, unpredictable side on tracks like "Two In The Front" and straight-up no-messing side on "One Finger" and the slow-burning orchestral damager "Hostile".... The list goes on. Deeper than previous collections and loaded with experimental twists, Footsie's on a serious vibe right here.

Review: London's Tessela has been crafting his sound in spectacular fashion over the last few years and none of his productions have caued more of a stir than the now rare as you like vinyl smash "Hackney Parrot". The prodigious bass explorer is not necessarily offering groundbreaking new genres but, instead, new ways of layering sounds next to one another. Both of the present tunes magnificent examples of rough, sweltering UK bass that's been run through the ever-enjoyable jungle filter. "Hackney Parrot" twists and layers up a famous vocal sample with masses of stop-start jungle breaks, and a couple of deep basslines that remind us of Dillinja's early output for Metalheadz. "Helter Skelter" is the heads-down tune, the one that's bound to get the crowd moving during a 5am trance, and Tessela's use of drums is becoming more and more essential for us after this new Poly Kicks. Warmly recommended.

Review: You'd imagine Clap! Clap! to hail from some mysterious, far-away contient but, in fact, Domenico Crisci is from Florence, a city you wouldn't immediately associate with tribalistic dance flavours. That is, until now. This is his second LP for London's excellent Black Acre label and, thourghout its stupendous twelve tracks, there are appearances from Planet Mu's John Wizards, the OY duo, and another like-minded tribal enthusiants from Italy, HDADD. This is a truly engrossing album, filled with tropical instrumentation, worldly chanting, and an altogether 'outernational' vibe. Dance to it, chill with it, leave on it the background. Whatever you do with it, it's bound to go down a storm, especially heard in its entirety. Don't sleep!

Review: Arma is a 22 year old producer from London who heads up BodyCheck & Borough Recordings. As a producer, he is someone who's constantly evolving his sound and will not be pigeonholed to a single genre or BPM. Also known for lo-fi house under his DJ VHS moniker, his tunes are all unified through their energy and fun loving vibes. These driving, party loving joints are reminiscent of fellow Brit Mele: who signed him to his label. With their excursion into the exotic, not to mention how much they push the threshold of the lo-end! "Favela" is a bombastic joint that features some mad horn loops and powered by a relentless stomp and clatter. But it's really about Murder He Wrote's absolutely nasty, street level remix where he injects it with some proper UK funky flavour.

Review: A/T/O/S stands for A Taste Of Struggle, and it's safe to say that Amos and Truenoys have certainly put their backs into this project. The duo were originally picked up by Mala back on 2014, and haven't looked back ever since. This is their second LP to date and, much like their debut, it touches upon many different elements of the enlarged dubstep continuum. There's plenty of tunes on here that'll liven up any dance, but this is very much a pensive and meditative bass affair. Much in line with Mala's pioneering 'deep' dubstep, it's clear that the Deep Medi head honcho has foud some new, young, and like-minded talents to carry on his dynasty.

Review: Last spotted on Terror Danjah's Hardrive, P Jam returns to Project Allout for an absolute junglist stinker. Chopping and slapping at a cool 136, there's heaps of space in the classic amen-obliterations for the ghostly vocal to shiver up your spine like an early ice age. Remix-wise take your pick: Chemist RNS emphasises the breakage, Moony darks it up with a subbier trip down UKG/breakbeat alleyways while Dr Cryptic injects it with a poisonous 4x4 and pranged out screechy bass. Gundam fires off the final rounds on a far out Soulection style space trip. Heartfelt.

Review: Both 50 Weapons and the Monkeytown massives would not be where they are if it weren't for the dedication and continuously high-calibre music of artists like Fjaak. The Berlin trio are total music junkies, preferring to spend their days with their heads in hardware manuals rather than in clubs or being seen at parties. We love that kind of dedication; it's what the underground community has always been about. Their new album, out on Monkeytown, of course, is self-titled and fully representative of their rugged, amorphous blends of bass and breakbeat science. In fact, there isn't a tune on here that could be categorized under one genre, and even heavy techno tunes like "Wolves" contain something new and curious, whether that be weird and wonderful melodies, or even a little injection of jungle juice. Techno viking Rodhad appears on the dark and mysterious glow of "Offline", but even that tune is drenched in enough experimentalism to render it utterly singular. Check and indulge.

Review: Alberta, Canada's Homesick has appeared previously on Philthtrax, Phyla and Ground Mass Music and is back on Philadelphia's Seclusiasis. The label run by Starkey and Dev79 and has previously fronted up with Knight Riderz, Rusko, NastyNasty and Murderbot to name but a few. On the Legendary EP it's certainly a wonky and street level affair from this fledgling producer. He starts off with the deconstructed drum and bass of "Our Storm" which transforms the UK street sound into a warped footwork affair. It's more of a grimey dubstep affair on the rather brooding ghetto technics of "Legendary", while "Don't Look In The Trunk" again takes to creating a fresh rendition on British underground music, tearing apart the retro sound of jungle from yesteryear and starting again, rather convincingly.

Review: Much like squashing a fly with a sledgehammer, Sheffield's Project Allout, counter Bristol's bass supremacy with this mammoth compilation. Yes, the second instalment in their eponymous series boasts a frankly absurd 39 new fresh bass cuts. It may take a while to get through it all, but that's half the fun. Inititial highlights include the speedy claps, fizzy hats and taut wobble vibes of "Manners" by 1Thirty, the horror move trap thrills of "Black Missile" by "Familiar Face" and the voluptuous house bass of Mooney's "At The Top".

Review: Originally appearing as a 'cowbell frenzy' on the Rebel Bass LP, "Get Low" now re-emerges remixed to high heaven. It was always a standout on the Stanton Warriors' album, but now it really shines in a variety of styles. Treasure Fingers goes for smooth and deep retro house, whilst The Vanguard Project's furious DnB version is hauntingly evocative. Elsewhere UFO shamelessly go for a commercial trap (with some Robin S) floor filling version and Infrakt deliver some merciless kick drums in a harder ghetto bass styleee.

Review: UK stable Circular Jaw decided to give us all a very bass-heavy Christmas 2016 by the sounds of this second instalment of their Weighty Sound series, and we just couldn't ask for more. Not only do this label put out a lot of music these days, but they also invariably manage to find some true talents from around the British Isles, and beyond! Their particular taste seems to be for the darker, more convoluted end of the bass spectrum, and this is exactly what you get throughout this mother of a compilation. Tunes from Wooda, Tylee, Wants, Lokua and many others are the sort of bass tracks that are capable of pushing the hardcore continuum way into the next decade, and it's just a waiting game before any one of these licks becomes the blueprint for the next big sound. Find yours.

Review: Breaking through on 877 last year, Bristol's Saidwho returns to the fray on the ever-on-point Southpoint. It's a match made in beat heavy - unclassifiable genre-melting beat sessions with heavy helpings of subby funk. "Banshee" has been damaging on dub for a while - rolling, stuttering and insistent, it lends itself to techno as much as it does garage. "Chase & Run" flips the rhythm for a more spacious broken trip into grime while "Leaked" is a brilliant Tipper-style space breaks funk jam with a raw, roomy aesthetic. Finally on a remix-tip, Mofaux closes the show with mean and moody switch-flipper that rips between cavernous 4/4s and a gnarly break on the drop.

Review: D.O.K returns to Hardrive with a frank statement of today's climate. Efed Up. How do we deal with all the negativity, fearmongering and post truths in the world? Getting down to some of his trademark sharp, spiked-out but insanely funky grime of course. "Efed Up" sits somewhere between UKG and breaks with its far-out springy beats and sensual vocal flurries, "Killa Clart" is all about the sharp string stabs while "Funky" pays homage to UK funky with its swinging beats and tripped out basses. Finally we hit "Tempo Riddim". One for the digi dub heads - expect major bouncing manoeuvres.

Review: Three time DMC Champion, BBC 1Xtra Resident and multi award-winning DJ Cable returns. The 'super dope mixtape maker' brings it courtesy of his own Triangulum Recordings with the Ancients EP and as the name may suggest: these are some really spiritual and esoteric insights into the UK bass sound. "Aztec Riddim" rolls deep with its low-end theory steeped in Amazonian aesthetics, while "Inca Riddim" follows in suit with its immaculate polyrhythms that will truly lead you into the exotic. "Olmec Riddim" is the same kind of bass driven tribal techno that Arthur Smith aka Grain (aka Artwork) was smashing out in the late nineties and had us really impressed

Review: We love the way Alix Perez has branched out in recent years. While we used to associate him to the minimal d&b wave that spawned in the late 00s, he's begun to venture onto into more diverse territories, as of late. He's up on his own 1985 Music here, and "Ghosts" is exactly the sort of glitchy, pseudo hip hop sketch that we now expect from the guy, but the real heat comes from "Hack & Slash", a total hybrid tune that goes from juke to dubstep, and back to something we're not really sure how to label. But, this is exactly how experimentation works and how new genres are created, something which is also very audible from his collaboration tune with Taso, "'Andromeda". "Tempest" is perhaps the weirdest and most daring of the lot, and the tune where Perez's d&b roots really come out, whereas "Crush" is a swinging, London bullet rhythm, for the heads. All in all, a much recommended affair.

Review: Nomine's Nomine Sound deals in the darker, more brooding shade of bass music that we all still really like to call 'dubstep'. The man's been an influential member of London's Tempa unit, so all the credentials are certainly in the right place. This new EP sees his share ideals with Macabre Unit, an absolute don in the game, and the two are perfectly matched. Nomine kicks off with three solo cuts, from the tribalesque grime antics of, ehm, "Grimy Tribe", to the menacing digi-gunshots of "Game Over", and "World Of G" featuring MC Duff, a vocal-ridden grime killer sung in an imperceptible strain of patois - tha BOMB! Macabre Unit first steps up with the explosive, head-banging bursts of "Sound Boy", followed by a cacophonous flurry of grime-inspired synth stabs on "Red Stripe Riddim", and tied off with the electrifying bass waves of "Neurotik".

Review: Pelikann (aka Jack MackMersh) is a West Midlands producer who is currently taking the UK's bass scene on an epic journey via his fearless genre-hopping approach. This, his latest release on Saucy, boasts three originals and some remixes too. The title track is mega hyped ghetto breaks with super melodic synthy fizz, "Badboy Sound" is all about the relentless subby fuzz-stabs (given a demented percussive makeover by Affiliate) and "Calm It" incorporates a nasty bass hum into a breaky bounce-a-thon. Rho reworks the latter into a super-fast DnB jam whilst "Spectre" becomes a jungle snarler thanks to Data 3.

Review: Breaka is Leeds lad Charlie Baker who has previously released on the likes of Tsunami Bass Weight and Good Street. He now appears for London's Modern Ruin with the Express Your Groove EP and he's right at home on this Footwork/Juke/Jungle/Bass label. Starting off with the deep and emotive junglist groove "Pull & Release" which features some nice R&B vocals atop, there's more quality on the stripped back drum and bass of "The Mistake" which takes things down a much darker route. Itoa's remix later on also stays on the same vibe but with more rolling, intricate riddims reminiscent of Andy C. The title track is particularly impressive; a soulful drum and bass journey that calls to mind Calibre or Marcus Intalex's finer moments.

Review: The Heretic label isn't out to step on anyone's toes, or swipe up any talent from someone else's label. On the contrary, the young and ambitious bass label has been scouting out their own talents, and Krotone is just the latest name in what will surely continue to be a Pandora's box of names and gifted individuals. We like him from the off; "Dspd" rolls out its impressive mountains of beats and bass over a wonderfully melodic backdrop of Nippon-inspired sounds, "Sleep Paralysis" manages to inject a little grime wonder to a pounding, broken assortment of beats and glacial bass tones, while "Energy" dissolves its bass and percussion stabs into a dubby, aqueous sonic terrain. There's a pair of remixes, too, the first being Cloaka's version of "Dspd", all screams and industrial flair, and the second being a version of "Sleep Paralysis" from Geist - pure, frost-bitten bass for ya'..

Review: Doctor Jeep (is that a Sisters Of Mercy reference?) has been kicking around for a couple of years now, dropping bona fide beats for labels like Hot Mum, Trouble & Bass, Tumble Audio and now Vancouver's infectious Aufect Recordings. It's all about the wobble on this EP, working to huge effect on the bell chiming "Tx", while opener "Dissociate" is proper, slimy basement rave material; 808 percussion on overdrive to spiralling effect. Remixes come in from Levrige who turns in more of a jungle rework, while Subcorr serves up some broken beat techno, kinda like early Pangaea. Furthermore, Greazus works in breathy vocals and transforms the bells of "Tx" into tripped out drips of tonal flux.

Review: Cardiff-based producer Stagga is a man who likes to experiment with extremely low levels of hertz, and his material for the Fat Fridge label is becoming synonymous with quality and style. He's back with an extended EP, seven cuts of delightfully pungent dance mutations that have difficulty in being labelled and/or categorised under one banner. Take "Jenny", for instance, a tune that could appeal to the grime headz, dubstep fanboys, and even those branching out into tribal-led African dance infusions; "New Gun" is a mother stunner, an eerie bass riddim with a noticeable leftfield swagger to its groove, while "Trip Switch" shakes up the EP by launching a heavy, unforgiving wobble attack in the most stupendous of bro-step fashions. If you're into the enlarged bass game, then this is your drug.

Review: This isn't exactly confidential information but, in case you weren't aware, Steve Spacek is D-Bridge's brother, a man who has helped to shape d&b over the years; it's clear that electronic music runs deep in the family bloodline, and both have achieved something special over the years. Eglo has been pivotal in shaping Spacek's career as of late, positioning him as a leader of the UK house-juke-bass crossover. "If You Want 2 Find Me" is the main tune here, and it leads with a rolling punch of bass dropped over sparse r&b vocals in what is a truly deep and magnetic piece of club music. "Time Is Running Out" is much more house-leaning thanks to its steady 4/4 sway, but the groove is filled with deep harmonics and hazy, spectral sonic aesthetic. There is also an acapella of the title track, and an instrumental for the heads. Big release from Floating Points' stable!

Review: TMSV specialises in all things bass-related, an artist who is capable of producing pretty much any sort of dance music that travels at the speed of sound and drags frequencies lower than the underground itself. The Artikal casual lands on Tumble Audio with this monster of an EP, filed with dubwise dread throughout, and that manages to wield an impressive amount of jungle out of its more dubstep-centric beats; "Expensive Suit" is a good example of that, but even "Nuh Tek Diss" has enough break-ridden charm to please all sorts of corner-dwelling head-nodders. A bodacious selection of remixes from the likes of Archive, Murder He Wrote and Hypho add to the nastiness, and make this one hell of an EP.

Review: This new EP from Birmingham's bass bastion Bassboy sees him leap artistically from his early days of RnB cut-ups. He's been pushing his sound more towards an off-kilter garage sound of late, though here things begin brightly with "Rainbows" - an infectious fusion of fizzy garage-pop and brutal bottom end. However elsewhere the perky "Colours" benefits from some heavy tribal thump and "Once Upon A Time" is an orgy of nasty 4x4 and 90s vocal snippets and pads aplenty. DJ Direct also appears to add some serious muscle to the title track too.

Review: For those who don't know, Hypho is a rising talent in the bass game and his quest to reach the top level has gotten closer thanks to this latest injection of low frequencies for the 877 label. "Wartime" is the perfect lead tune, a string-led pseudo grime instrumental with a perfectly executed percussive rhythm, and "Pinch" follows a similar path thanks to its slithering beats. There is a collaboration with Squane on "Hack", a futuristic grime roller with a mean collection of beats and hollow melodies, which is followed by Majora's remix of "Wartime", a more uplifting version of the tune, and a Vital Techniques reinterpretation of "Pinch". Smoking bangers guaranteed!

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.

Review: We have waited a very long time for new music from Bristolian bass ruler, Pharoah K. Well now he's opened up the tomb and unleashed a new EP. There's only two tracks mind, but they're good 'uns. With both cuts displaying a tremendous skill for island-style percussion, the EP's title track, "Bora" is the softer of the two. Seductive and beguiling, the rhythmical sways of the tune are an exercise is sassy swagger. "Tusk" meanwhile, is all bout the elephantine hip-hop, an angry, brassy snorter. Glad this ancient king has been resurrected.

My Nu Leng are another up and cming local duo who have appeared on Black Butter Records and MTA Records. If that wasn't enough, the duos also enlist the vocal talents of one Kiko Bun; an original rudeboy from London. Now you may be hinking there's too many cooks in the kitchen but you'd be sadly mistaken! This pitched down and deconstructed take on modern jungliest sounds is pure fire. Rumbling sub bass, choppy amen breaks combined with Bun's convining dub stylin' vocals are the bomb right here.

Review: New boy Bass peddler Drax (not to be confused with Thomas Heckmann's Tecno project) has been bubbling under the surface and building a reputation for himself in all the right circles Southpoint have managed to secure his services with these five curbside bangers, and the lead track "Frostie" draws the first weapon with a classic sort of grime approach, which allows "Leave" and "Locked" to both work on the same sort of aesthetic with a deeper focus on the half-step beats and additional harmonics. There's a couple of remixes, to boot; Beanzo turns "Frostie" into an even icier affair thanks to the help of a more penetrative beat shuffle, and JFO morphs "Leave" into an early-days Skepta kinda flex. Big.

Review: Hailing from Edinburgh, Blackboxxx got his first break with the mighty Slime label. Since his debut, Sayonara, he's progressed and honed his sound, resulting in this smart new offering, Adonis, on NM Recordings. The title track is a warm slice of future 2-step, complete with dreamy atmospherics, distant RnB vocals and some deep sub warbles. "Link Up" goes even further into luxurious MJ Cole-style vibes for a truly slick ride. Moony also remixes the former into some filthy hardcore nastiness, with bouncy breaks mayhem by Cellardore and smooth late night vibes Courtesy of Doctor Nick.

Review: Longstanding New World Audio merker Shandy cracks open three tins of fizzy fire on us with the fittingly titled "Vintage Grime" collection. "Horizon" sets the scene with string-sprung drama. Unashamedly steppy, it's an instant flashback to 2001. "Coincide" joins the dots with dubstep with its hazy tones and low-slow groove. Finally "Projection" is an all-out space hopper with a broadsword bassline, neck-snapping beats and delicate pianos. True to the craft.
