Limits - (6:00) 140 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: Long standing Deep Medi player Silkie steps over to Wheel & Deal with three out-of-the-box bass cuts. "Bird In The Sky" is all about the bashy, UK funky style drums and a loopy element that digs deep with hypnosis. "M3000" takes the brutal factor up another notch; all pneumatic kicks and clattering snares, it's a class lesson in minimal mischief. After two rocket-fuelled stompers, Silkie treats us right with "Limits". A modern day sexy jam, all slinky and piano-tickled, it's the perfect way to end the EP, and your next set. Full circle business.

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".

Review: This is a significant moment in the development of Michael "Huxley" Dodson. Following six years building his reputation via a constant trickle of singles, the London-based producer has finally delivered a debut album. It's a little more expansive and varied than many of his singles, and variously touches on many of his regular inspirations - UK garage, deep house and bumping techno, in particular - as well as some he's not previously explored (see the pitched-down rave breaks of "Give 2 U" and the "Circles"-ish liquid D&B of "MXR"). The result is a polished, floor-friendly set that impressively straddles the line between club tracks and home listening fodder.

Review: Reading's Jook 10 is getting better at this album thing - it took ages for his debut album Darkside to arrive, and now the follow up, Contraversial, is here just one year later. Skill-wise, his spelling may be controversial, but certainly not his production techniques and here we get 10 impressive examples of them. Highlights include the tropical-keyboard-falling-down-the-stairs eccentricity of "How Come", the apocalyptic voodoo garage of "Feelings" and the slammin' speed garage bounce of "Fuse".

Review: The newly founded In:Flux imprint launches its second release after Tik & Borrow's mutant drum-core single, and it's in the form of an extended collaborative release. Mr C goes in for the kill with three monster house mutants packed with enough low-end to send the dubstep boys into twist. Dr. Oscillator's "The Heist" is a similarly gritty and wobbled-out 4/4 lick, while Tik & Smuggla's "Scuffa Kid" goes into a more broken, swinging garage mode. These guys are setting up their own sound fast, so don't sleep and get to know.

Lucent - "Tunnel Vision" (Rico Tubbs remix) - (4:11) 63 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Twisted dancehall vibes fresh from Liverpool, as Lucent teams up with Rubi Dan for a steppy shock-out that positively demands outrageous skanking behaviour. For added measure Lucent also teams up with Tomb Crew for a collaborative remix where Rubi's vocals get buried by a smouldering bouncy bass hook. Further on Klient Weight take "X-Rated" down a dark techno alley and turn it into a savage 4/4 bass-battered affair. Looking for more of a straight-up jack attack? Head for "Tunnel Vision". An uncompromising stomper with sinewy bass melodies, it's a kindly contemporised nod at the material Herve and Switch were serving up about seven years ago. Finally, Rico Tubbs jumps in on the remix flex with an old school homage, all time-stretched vocals, speed garage sirens and fractured amen angularities.

Review: Black Butter know a thing or two about uncovering new talent and with Wayward they've struck gold again. Ugestu is their debut EP, but this London duo already reveal a maturity beyond their years through its six tracks. There is a hazy Balearic vibe throughout, but standouts include the sunkissed wash splashes and distant bass of "Reverie", the sleek and low electro-funk of "Hurricane" and the brittle future-soul-step of the title track.

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.

from $1.49
Review: Always concerned with keeping dubstep and its subsidiary styles marching ahead into fertile new ground, Keysound operatives Dusk + Blackdown have an interesting twist to this new "EP", which offers up four new tracks, four remixes and two mix recordings as a stock take of where everything is at in bass music right now. The new material finds the rhythms moving in limber and playful ways, while the melodic content stays gritty and moody, even if the LV-esque synth blasts of the title track shed some colour on the surroundings. There's a healthy thread of grime and all manner of rave signifiers woven into "Peng One Two", and some more wild experimetation on "Epic Jam", and then the remixes fling out in equally eclectic configurations. For top shelf bass mutations across the board, you can do no wrong here.

Review: Amazingly, it's been three years since Birmingham-raised duo Cause & Affect made their debut on Beatdown Music. Since then, their profile has rocketed thanks to regular appearances on Rinse FM. Here they pop up on the station's label offshoot with a four tracker that smoothly joins the dots between UK funky, deep house and UKG. Opener "Mistakes", blessed as it is with jaunty bleep melodies, warm sub, heady pads and a choice vocal sample, is particularly impressive. "Dimensions" is faster and breezier, with deliciously wide-eyed breakdowns, while "Bird Flu" laces electronic blips and cut-up vocals over a rolling 4/4 garage rhythm. Finally, "Foorest" is impressively weird and glitchy, sounding like UK bass house beamed down from another planet.

Review: Though he's been making and releasing music of various styles for roughly five years, it feels like Florence-born Digi G'Alessio has really found his creative voice since he starting working under the name Clap! Clap! Having established the project last year with the Gwidingwi Dema digi release for Origami Sounds, G'Alessio has since gravitated to the like minded Black Acre with the Bristol label issuing two Clap! Clap! singles. If you're not familiar with the Clap! Clap! sound, it deftly fuses traditional elements of African music with a rhythmic freneticism that is influenced by everything from house and hip hop to footwork and dubstep. Apply this to the album format as G'Alessio does with Tayi Bebba and you have some interesting listening, especially as each of the 17 tracks is presented as a tour of an imagined island, with "each song representing a location, event or ritual."

Review: Brighton bass evangelists 877 have the likes of GoldFFinch and My Nu Leng amongst their roster and can now boast the addition of the hotly tipped Distro too. Featuring the moody garage-flecked "Pinnacle" and the deep, wobble-heavy 4x4 of the title track, Flava D also remixes the latter into end-of-the-world speed garage. However, it's the thrilling collision of Bristolian heroes Distro and My Nu Leng on the big-beat- meets-disco-in-bass-town shenanigans of "Sleepless" that's getting the real hype from the likes of B Traits and Monki right now. On fire!

Review: The fourth in the Hot series sees Rushmore flirt with bass, techno and footwork - often within the same track. "Paladium" sets the tone for the release, with tight, syncopated drums and a stepping rhythm underscoring instant stabs. "Highroad" features similar rattling rhythms, but it sounds like Rushmore is channelling late 90s Dr Dre as the groove is infused with chilling strings. After that, things start to get chaotic; "NPG" features more of the same rattling rhythms and buzz-saw riffs, while "Silent Melody" returns to the smoked out, chilling sounds of "Highroad" - this time populated by ghostly voices - and "She Wants" finishes with brittle, glassy percussion and breathy vocal tones.

Review: There's throbbing bass aplenty on the menu when Paul Lawrence and Andy Garrett get together with this EP for Four40, which finds the pair fusing techno atmospherics with rude garage styles to create a potent floor-filling blend. "Apocalypse" works around a snappy breakbeat pattern which buffets along the heavy-wobbling b-lines, while "Fire" is a more devoutly swung and shuffling stepper to inspire a wealth of uptempo gyrating, aided and abetted by choice vocal licks and tripped-out breakdown sections. There's no let up for "War Cry" either with its own blend of tight drums and gut-busting low end honed for the hottest part of the night.

Review: Barnsley's finest bass producer Brent Kilner has been talking recently about switching to a brand new sound, so the My Mind EP might just be your last chance to catch him killing it before he moves on. If they are his last bass tracks, he's bowing out it style, delivering the raucous and breaky 4x4/jump up hybrid "My Mind" and the deep and moody wobbler "Boomstick". The title track also gets remixed into some doomy dubstep by Pelikan and turned into an otherworldly bass assault by Kiri.

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: 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.

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: 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.

Review: Lit City Trax is on fire as of late; with the likes of Lisbon's DJ Marfox, DJ Spinn and Traxman on their roster, they truly are the specialists in representing the fusion of classic and emerging dance sounds from around the globe. This latest EP by newcomer Saga is another fine slice of high-tek funk, and it's great to see that they're also good at spotting new talent. The title track is a grimey, snare-heavy warehouse stomper, and it's a perfect representation of what's to come on the rest of the tracks: gritty, sci-fi-filtered beats and badass basslines. Another winner from the label, and recommended to fans of the current Bristolian wave.

Review: Emerging from the Midlands in 2007 with the telling-it-like-it-is Serious Wobble by Stylus, Ground Level has rapidly risen to the top of the bass leagues. Now to celebrate its seventh year of success, main man Andy McAllister has provided this sizzling hot mix featuring 13 bangers. It's quite a trip and some of our fave pit stops on the way include the deep 'n' jazzy baile-ton of Zap! Pow! Die!'s "Bounce (Fuck This Mix)", the ethereal dubby 2step of "It Feels So Good" by John Bradley and the beefy-bassed, hypno laser jam "Hula Hoop" by DJ Hero.

Review: It's been some six years since renowned misery guys Kevin Martin won plaudits for London Zoo, a typically dark, intense and aggressive full-length that showcased his unique ability to blend dubstep, grime, dancehall and dub techno textures into nightmarish new shapes. Angels & Devils, his belated follow-up, is intriguingly different. While the second half of the set is blessed with plenty of robust, floor-friendly riddims (each blessed with vocals from a range of impressive collaborators), the first half is an altogether more downbeat affair. In fact, it's these moments - the droning, dub-inflected ambience of "Pandi" and the bluesy, soundscape dub-soul of "Save Me" - that hit home hardest.

Review: Brand new to Black Butter, Sam Sure lays down a beautiful bed of dreamy sonic synthesis and proceeds to coat it with his distinctive yearning vocals and sharp wordplay. Perfect timing for cuffing season, it's fantastic smooching material. Remix-wise Shadow Child ups the ante with a little cheeky low-end, DVWLX inject a steppy future-garage style drum flavour and Jaded do an awesome impression of Sasha with a lavish rolling house blend that nods deftly at prog's best features. We're sure this will be a unanimous autumn anthem.

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.

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: Brighton's future soul duo Anushka recently dropped their debut album, Broken Circuit, to great acclaim. Now they're back with a new single and album highlight, "Atom Bomb". Deep sensual and jazzy, with scattershot beats and heavily harmonised vocals, the original is a beguiling slice of modern urban soul. There are some great mixes too including NameBrandSound's seductive slo-mo footwork rework, as well as their own VIP mix which adds a dubbier vibe to proceedings.

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.

Done Me Wrong - (5:29) 129 BPM
Done Me Wrong by Mosca on Numbers Cue Track
Bax - (5:33) 134 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: The latest release from the Glaswegian imprint adds a further sheen of excellence in a year where Numbers has really knuckled down and concentrated on a schedule of multi faceted releases. Such has been the demand for Mosca's debut on the Numbers imprint, the London based producer cheekily took to touting advance DJ copies of Do Me Wrong via Facebook. Both tracks here are fully poised for the floor, priming a throwback Bassline / UK G swing dipped in a nowness from Mosca that's been evident on drops for Night Slugs and Fat City. Unusually, it's the B Side that's garnered the most attention, which is odd as "Done Me Wrong" is excellent, reigning in vintage female hollerations over clipping rhythms, swamping basslines and parping synths that pay homage to the classic "RIP Groove". Flipside, the more celebrated "Bax" is a dual assault on your senses, murky sub bass jabbing at your ribs, whilst the sweet cooing vocals whisper sweet nothings in your ears. All this is underpinned by a skipping mid 90s flex heavy on the neon stabs that has warehouse jam written all over it.

The MZ - (6:08) 126 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: San Francisco's Worthy drops a payload on the inimitable Trouble & Bass imprint in the form of two brand-spanking new belters. "Golden Fang" is a proper hybrid track if we ever heard one - deep, sweltering bass, 4/4 kicks and absurdly mutated percussion blend to create an all-out monster! "The MZ" follows in the same vein, where gnarly squelches and melodies are swollen by a heavy kick-snare framework. Killers, both of them!

from $1.49
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: While his Numbers contemporaries Jackmaster and Hudson Mohawke have been courting international superstardom (the latter soundtracking Apple ads and working with Lil Wayne and Drake), Rustie has stayed true to his roots. This second full-length - the follow-up to acclaimed 2011 debut Glass Swords - proves that it was a wise strategy. Green Language is a storming set, delivering blends of crunk, wonk-hop, 8-bit electronica, grime and post-dubstep rhythms that bristle with intergalactic synths and glassy-eyed, late night swagger. Rustie has carved out a niche of his own that's increasingly hard to define, but one that guarantees thrilling, next-level music. Green Language proves that emphatically.

from $1.49
Review: The UK's Billy Kenny makes his debut on the always-on-point, Four40! Kenny is a pure garage wizard, with a sound that could seriously rip up the floor. "Call You Back" features one of those basslines which you can leave on loop for hours, allowing it to seduce you into its incessant rhythm, providing a tune for the late-night hours that you can mix in with just about anything. "Work" is similarly funky and loaded with bone-shaking low-end, except this time Mr.Kenny is in an even nastier mood. Fire!

Review: UK bass nutters Panda, are pretty mysterious but their music is certainly gaining fame from all angles, landing with a bump on Sounds Of Sumo for three-tracker packed with an arsenal of remixes. "Rewind", "That Girl" and "We Breathe" are all mutant numbers with a shed load of low-end and general dread but the remixes manage to morph the originals into utter floor filth. Check the Tomb Crew piece especially - large...

Review: Sheffield's Deadbeat UK has already released stuff on labels with such amazing titles as Chip Butty Records and Off Me Nut. 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.
