Review: Bristol bassman Bromley steps up to 877 with two originals that purr with understated, techy menace. Spacious and just the right amount of twisted, fans of Mak & Pasteman, Wen and My Nu Leng will instantly connect:. "Related" is a two-step hummer that ploughs through the low end soundcape with a well-oiled mechanical flow, while "Check" comes complete with pads so icy they could reverse global warming. Remix-wise Hostage adds a steppy, militant swing and additional bass gurgles while Sly-One adds a whole new line of synth textures before stripping the vibe right back to its bare rhythmic bones. This will relate with a lot of dancefloors and DJs right now.

from $1.49
Review: Turkish producer Gantz has been steadily earning his stripes on Black Box and Innamind, but now he makes a return to Deep Medi Musik with one of his most daring offerings to date. "Pseudooo" heads straight out into the kind of uncharted territory you might expect to find Ras G and Afrikan Sciences chilling in, without sounding quite like either of those artists. The title track meanwhile heads into a more low slung hip hop refrain that bleeds wonderfully around the edges, while Rider Shafique lends his dextrous flows to "Rockstar" with sizzling results. "Supreme A" rounds the EP off with a more introspective mood built around delicate string hits looping with erratic abandon.

Review: Killyjoy's back and he's brandishing an ode to the girls of his hometown Nottingham. "Gyalist Riddim" proves that wobble ain't dead yet, with the original and its three mixes going heavy on the full on fat low end. The title track adds some serious snare roll chaos to the mix, whilst Deadbeat adds a slammin' 4x4 twist. Asa & Sorrow keep it hard and underground and Doctor Jeep wraps up the package with some deliciously doomy tropical vibes.

Review: Brummie producer/MC extraordinaire Preditah does the honourable thing with Craig David's finest moment; chopping up his memorable chant from 2000 and slapping him down over a bulbous bass house jam. Rewind material... Literally. Remix-wise a whole array of vibes await; Cahill get their mid-'90s prog twinkles on, Dexcell let fly with a murky timeless D&B roller, Dr Meaker go for a late '90s Full Cycle D&B vibe, Majestic gets an awesome future-G shuffle on while adding a little spooky dynamic in all the right places, Vanilla Ace and Dharkfunkh throw down a very cool, understated garage strutter while Wilfred Giroux looks towards the mid-2000s Get Physical / Made To Play type of jack. Rewind selectors!

Review: 253 is the number of miles between dance veteran Mr C's Huddersfield home and bass loving Pavv down in Brighton. That hasn't stopped them from teaming up for a split EP though, and here they both perfectly capture the sound of In:fluX. There's a tough, no nonsense vibe throughout the EP, with Pavv dropping the deep and dirty wobble-garage hybrid "Don't Look" and the epic, trance-bass delirium of "The Fantasy". Mr C also steps in to deliver the skippy future-bouncer "Dance With Me" which sustains the already high standard of quality on offer here.

from $1.49
Review: Earlier this year Houndstooth regulars Akkord released the HTH020 EP, in which the duo took their bass-heavy sound to darker, more industrial places. It's something explored more explicitly on this remix package, which may well have two of the year's most radical tracks revisions. Tri Angle artist The Haxan Cloak delivers the epic 10-minute "Cloud of Witness" remix, taking elements from all four of the original Akkord EP's tracks, and turning them into an unclassifiable behemoth of bass, drone and strobing beats. Vatican Shadow's take on "Greyscale" and "Typeface" is a little more conventional, but nevertheless turns the two tracks into a powerful piece of techno that would demolish a dance floor in the right setting.

Artillery (Hybrid Theory remix) - (3:19) 134 BPM
from $1.49
Review: With momentum gaining on every bass-heavy release, the Tuffster steps up to the currently on-point Four40 with "Artillery". With a dark-but-not-dangerous UKG silky finish, it belies its militant title and offers something that lends itself well to a much wider audience beyond the front row murkers. Hybrid Theory's remix, meanwhile, is straight up toxic trap business. If you ain't thugging by the end of it, you need to take a long hard look at yourself.

Review: Northern darkstepper Kilner steps up to curate the second Four40 compendium, and he's looted the most exclusive of vaults to create a collection that's wholly unique to him. Tightly sprung in unreleased cuts and dubs, it's sharp-tailored document of where 130 bass music is at in the UK right now. From the lean groaning two-step shuffles of Hybrid Theory's "Tempering" via the warehouse-battering tubular bass and twisted vocal flexes of Adjected Deleted & Scullious's "Enemy" via the murderous grumblings and bounce-bass badness of Fogg & The Bumpy Fool, Kilner's so on point right now he sleeps on a bed of nails. Sharp.

Review: Dust off your Reebok Classics and prepare to get them dirtier than ever before: Bass enthusiasts Slime have recruited 10 of their favourite garage-minded artists to create a future-focused document that details the genre's roots, relevance, consistent presence and continuous evolution. From the bubble-bass hook of Sleezy's "Wait" to the spliced, diced vocal chops and clattering two-steps of Bad Habit's "Trying Times" via the much darker, almost acid house vibe of Jonah's 4/4 bass juggernaut "Hazmat", this collection neatly joins the dots between post dubstep bass music, dark house and garage with a vision that will still sound sharp in years to come. Welcome to the future.

Review: Keeping loyal to their own Four40 label, Midlands duo Hybrid Theory, return with the Mind Games EP; yet another slice of their forward-thinking, bass-heavy artillery. This time they're loaded with three powerful rounds with "Mind Games" leading the charge with its aggressively sassy and sweaty warehouse garage vibes. "0483" continues apace with some stripped back electro tinged wobble and finally the skippy bounce of "Screened" ends on tropical high. Bang!

from $1.49
Review: Fresh from frontage on all the right platforms - FKOF, Thump, Rinse - young northerner Prizma digs deep with three ice-tight originals and a slew of toxic remixes. "Clash Concept" is a blistering breakbeat-driven cut that wouldn't have gone amiss in the early 2000s when UKG got darker than Mr Kirk's nightmare. "Mentality" is a subverted take on two-step with big live drum sounds and a deep throat bassline while "Amazonian" struts and slams with a really interesting take on a well known drum break and equally naughty bass tones. Sound clash, ready, this whole package reeks in the best possible way.

from $1.49
Review: Turbo two-step with minimal muscle. "Saracen" joins the dots between the Bristol beatsmith's dubstep roots and his current penchant for the lighter side of the dance. Dig deeper for "Day Z", a grime-referenced eskibeat slapper with a bass texture that has a life of its own. For added pleasure Durkle Disco have thrown in a remix from fellow west countryman Majora; a much deeper, 4/4 jam that drops into a dark alley bass bubbles mid-way, it's a great transitional tool for house DJs looking to murk the flow for a spell.

Review: Here we have a brand-spanking new Bass Clinique affair by debutant Archive. "Make It Rain" is a half-step monster with some abrasively high levels of mutant bass - also featuring the vocal talents of MC Shantie - while "Felt Nothing" combines the harder edge of dubstep together with a techno flair in its percussion. There's yet more bass filth on "Through The Speaker", and Doctor Jeep transforms "Felt Nothing" into a true tech-house burner complete with deadly low-end. Top stuff.

Review: Already a veteran of labels such as Cheap Thrills, Bass Clinique and Jalapino, this London based, Birmingham-born producer is back with a new banger, "Feel Good", on Saucy. Recently championed by Rinse FM's Dappa, "Feel Good" is a remarkable fusion of bottom-heavy rolling bassline and melodic disco-house for a total dancefloor bomb. There are three mixes too with AMotion exploring moody, swishy, break-step, Libra going retro piano-garage and Mafia Kiss ending proceedings with some deliciously deep rave sounds.

Review: Bristol's musical medicine man Dosage gets his ancient Greek guns out on "Adonis". Twisting the two-step template with a dash of spliced, diced, vocal snippery it's an emphatic document of where both UKG and Dosage are at right now. "Titan" follows with sugar-sweet rhythmic switches that flicker from 4/4 to two-step with the help of a very crafty Kathy Brown vocal sample slice-up. "Europa", meanwhile, chows down on a feast of breakbeats, treacle-thick subs and a haunted arpeggio that wouldn't look out of place on church on Sunday. For added breakbeat badness head for Cloaka's dark-step twist on "Adonis". Bang!

Review: Usually known for his radio shows with musical partner Tee, Kevin Vincent has now signed up as a solo artist with Bass Clinque. Seeing as the BC boys 'have over 50 years music industry experience between them', they can obviously sees Vincent's potential. There are four examples of this potential on display here on his debut EP. The Bells - the pumping, sparse house meets bass growls of the title track, the dubby 2-step of "The Chimes", the Tropical electro of "Bongo Beaten Trail" and the bouncy bassline roller "Emotional". An impressive start!

"Brooklyn Underground" is a body popping homage with the formative electro sounds while "Dinner & Corsica" takes us right back to the acid-house warehouse-melting source. Dig deeper for a hip-teasing percussive house number "Make It Happen" and deeper again for the stunning two-step soul smoulderer "Watching" that sits somewhere between Burial and MJ Cole. Breath-taking.

Spacious skippy breakbeats, hooky detuned synths and an overall dark, misty timeless feel, drop this and you'll be "Busy Earnin'" lots of dancefloor kudos.

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.

Review: Bok Bok is back in action on his own label with this sprightly two-tracker featuring fresh-faced collaborator Sweyn Jupiter who is making a debut appearance on this record. The "Club Mix" of "Papaya Lipgloss" is a plush affair that revels in the sweetest chimes of melody that linger in mid-air surrounded by a pleasantly sleek rhythm section. It's a joyous affair that keeps an upbeat mood without reaching over into banality, instead letting subtle but impressive flairs of production shine through in the simple surroundings. The "Sour Mix" doesn't actually loose any of that sweetness, but rather deploys it in a more staggered, playful mix that revels in more broken drum patterns and dramatic pauses.

Review: Having already turned more than a few heads with a strong appearance opposite Tuff Sherm on a split disc for Plastic World, Australian producer Cassius Select makes a fully-fledged outing on Unknown To The Unknown with a very savvy blend of sharp-edged club wreckers in line with DJ Haus's own riotous vision of 21st century dance music. "Cross Strut" places the emphasis on clattering percussion locked into a hard funk, while "Crook" lets a few more atmospheric splatters of melody and reverb into the twitchy mix. The ideas come flying thick and fast without losing sight of the dancefloor, just like all good UTTU releases.

Review: Rinse FM favourite A Motion is back delivering a unique, forward-looking fusion of classic speed garage and two-step. The You Know EP features four new bangers in this ilk, all peppered with further sonic elements. The spartan title-track mixes melodic wobble bass and floaty female vocals, "Close Your Eyes" features mean bass growls under hypnotic vocals melodies, "Locked" introduces spacey rave pads and "What You Do" integrates '90s house organs with raw tw-step friskiness. Fierce!

Review: When Plastician dropped one of Kiri (Leeds) and Grafta's (Newcastle) new collaborations live on Rinse FM, he had to confess that he had no idea how to categorize the other worldly sounds the pair have created. The two tracks featured on this debut EP are a fresh assault on the ears, mark our words! First up, we get the brooding menace of the title track which takes dubstep as it's starting block before letting rabid percussion out of it's cage. Next up, "Butterfly" knocks it out of the park with aggressive basslines, garagey beats creepy vox and doomy chords.

Review: Pow! Mumdance and Novelist finally unleash two critical slammers that have been doing the rounds for a while now. Mumdance's production dynamic is stark, minimal and drenched in all manner of unique sound design - the perfect bed for Novelist's melodic lyrical bounces as he flexes a complex yarn of money, moods and mindsets. With instrumentals thrown in for good measure, this will suit all bass selector styles.

Review: The London crew who've given us the likes of Rudimental, Clean Bandit, Gorgon City and many other acts, Black Butter have been spreading love for four years now. Judging by this sumptuous set, they're not stopping any time soon. Arguably the darkest collection of the series to date, it ranges from sinewy, waspy bass jackers (DVWLX's - "When I'm Alone") to late night tech funk Berlin-style lazer-fests (BNRY's "Something North") via slinky somnambulant hazy techno (Troy Gunner's "Chain Reaction") and twisted, paranoid UKG hybrid (Jaded's "Gully Creeper"). Each one primed for total dancefloor destruction, Black Butter have delivered a premium package right here.

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: In the wake of all this grime business blowing up at the moment, it seems an apt time be delving into this compilation of early Plastician jams from a time before Mr Hawtin forced him to change his name. Coming at the emergence of dubstep when it was also called sublow or sometimes just grime, it's a thrilling reminder of the possibilities that were opening up in gritty urban electronic music at the time. With a primal approach and that icy minimalism that made the early material so exciting, there's not a duff moment in earshot across the whopping 21 tracks included here, and they've all been remastered for maximum contemporary impact. What more could a bass lover ask for?

Review: Wow, this is quite some album from Planet Mu! You may not be so familiar with Jlin, a footwork producer with a couple of contributions to the second Bangs & Works compilation Planet Mu released, but the Indiana based artist is quite the talent on the basis of Dark Energy. Jlin has gone on record to say this album has been in gestation from some time and explores darker themes than you would usually get on a footwork album. There's a real confidence to her productions at times on this album, "Black Diamond" in particular has a wonderful swagger to its syncopation, and in "Expand" Jlin offers an intriguing collaboration with RVNG Intl's resident voice manipulator Holly Herndon.

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.

Review: A leading light in the bass scene, Foamo's residency at The Fat! is legendary, not to mention his slew of killer remixes and his own releases on labels like Skint. Now he returns with a newie, his first for almost a year, on the Rinse label. It's commercial o'clock for our boy Foamo, but the EP is so solidly produced, that it doesn't matter. The overall theme here is slammin' retro house breaks paired with an ascending urban bass riff and soulful female vocals. All infectious the standout is probably the edgier "Without You".

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: Biblical badness from T&B mainstays Doctor Jeep and Tony Quattro. Jeep goes in first with two stark originals; "Creator" pays homage to the big guy upstairs with an ace lesson in vocal splicing, gritty 4/4 pumps and epic snare rolls. "Torpedo" follows on a steppier, tribal vibe while Quattro closes the show with a sweet homage to both jump up D&B and ghetto-tek. Firing on all cylinders, T&B continue to lead rather than follow.

The result is a deep, rolling four-piece that shudders, shakes and slaps in such a way they could find their way into house, tech, dubstep, electro and breaks sets. Highlights include the yearning emotional pads and expert use of a vocal clip on "Feels" and the breath-taking Way Out West-isms of "Here". "Time" to get busy!

Review: Pelican Fly teams up with the infamous Ed Banger institution to deliver a tight little remix package of Cahmere Cat's "Mirror Maru" EP! Only "Mirror Maru" and "Kiss Kiss" are chosen as part of the project but judging from the diversity of the remixing team, this can only mean one thing: DOPE! Canblaster takes the first shot at the former, transforming the original into a sexy and seductive R&B anthem, whilst Busy P goes for a straight-up hip-hop flex with a touch of electro-tinged balearica, and LidoLido takes us on a soothing journey through sparse vocal-chops and grinding, booty-shaking basslines. As for the latter, G Vump takes a startling broken beat flex, reducing the original to a stuttering mass of kicks, snares and ominous harmonics; but the real surprise comes from Feadz & Kito, who create an all-out monster half-step belter - fresh!

Review: Tik & Borrow joined forces last year with the sole intent of fusing their DnB past with their garage-step future. Here they chose their own In:Flux label to release their latest tune, "Neuromancer", which is a forward bouncing wobbler, made even more lean by Thorpey. Elsewhere, highlights of the many mixes include Little Mester's deep and moody bass throbber and 1point5's delicate two-step influenced rework.

Review: The commercially acclaimed Bill & Will finally drop their "Control The Night" monster on a tight three-tracker for the Stripes label. The main tune is a wobbled-out house number sitting somewhere between tech-house, breaks and dubstep. "Lighter" is a little smoother around the edges but nonetheless abrasive on the dancefloor, but it's "Whoa" which makes the limelight thanks to it bumpy basslines, broken arrangement and absolutely hummable rhythm. Cop 'em!

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: As is now customary, Young Turks round off another productive year by bundling together tracks from some of their key releases. There's naturally much to admire, from the sparse and atmospheric outsider electronica of FKA Twigs' anthem-like "Two Weeks", and leftfield 4/4 dark-funk of SBTRKT's "New Dorp, New York" (featuring the distinctive vocals of Ezra Koening), to the delicate downtempo textures and dub-soaked rhythms of Jamie XX. Throw in a slice of immersive, left-of-centre bass music (Quirke's "Break A Mirrored Leg") and a dash of James Blake style fragility from Sampha ("Too Much"), and you've got a formidable package.

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: Birmingham's James Black may have done a runner to Australia but at least under his artist name, Arctic, he delivers a subtle a nod to his home country's current climate. Here he delivers four slammers (and a VIP mix) of prime bass music including the 4 x 4 rattler "Takin It Back", the psychedelic mayhem of the skippy garage rave of the title track and the fizzy, 8-bit wobble-fountain of "Inside (Arctic mix)".

Review: Mystery man Auden drops his second EP on Scuba's Hotflush Recordings, a label now worthy of legendary status in the UK house-bass game, and as expected, it's another four cuts of supreme dancefloor delight and 909-driven goodness. "Lock In" takes a rawer-than-raw percussion and chucks a rather splendid collection of dubbed-out chords over it, whereas "Utopian" breaks the groove down into a half-step head-nodder for the corner dwellers. "Perished" heads back to a 4/4 structure backed with another fine dose of dubby, atmospheric trickery, but it's "Xirox" which receives all the brownie points - imagine an Ed Rush and Optical tune circa '97'that's been slowed-down and reinterpreted for the deep house and techno speed. Ultra slick, ultra sick.
