Review: For all those of you out there who had lost faith in ever hearing another instalment in the Saucy Selections series...rejoice! The wait is over. It's over a year since Vol 2, but the Saucy crew are back bringing serious fiyah over 22 fresh new jams. As usual, the quality is never compromised, particularly on such standouts as the mercilessly pounding, RnB sampling "You Better Know" by Libra, the futuristic 2-step synth stabs of "Eyes On You" by Jello and the dry warehouse beats and buzzy bass bounce of "People Dem Dance" by Lucent & Karl Vincent.

Review: Sheffield's Project Allout don't mess about, having developed a reputation for championing all directions in the ways of bass. Every take on that three letter word is important to this label and that's why they cram so many hot jams onto their comps. Basically they're the Ferrero Rocher am-bass-adors and they are really spoiling us with 49(!) lengerz. Highlights include AT's bleepy 8-bit hip-hop groove "Flash Bang", the epic, symphonic trap of Dubzta's "Lord Of War" and the almost disco tech grooves of "Murkers' by King Hydra. All killer, no filler!

Review: What a time to be a Dbridge fan... First his Cylon release (Trinity Ville), then Exit (Too Late) now this Pleasure District 12". Here we find him traversing the 170 universe frontier teasing the D&B boundaries with extra-curricular elements. "I'm Feeling Cold" skips on a palpitating heartbeat drum as manipulated vocals breathe heavily with the woozy pads. "Zerone" casually swaggers to a mildly jazzy halfbeat while "Evolvent" takes us much deeper down the detuned rabbit hole with woozy, almost seasick effects. Finally we hit "Simm-Pathy", the most club-focused cut of the pack with its rhythmic riff and slightly more traditional drum arrangement.

Wallwork & Nan Kola - "Fyah" (instrumental) - (4:12) 130 BPM
from $1.96
Review: It's a house-grime marriage on Bristol's Black Acrel label, from newfound dup Wallwork and Nico Lindsay, the latter of the two bringing the vocal street swagger to the beats. The title track "Facts" is a big, bad, heavy slab of percussion and bass powered by Lindsay's curbside lyricism, and it's one of those tunes that's bound to get shit tarted in the dance. This is followed by the more kinetic flow of "Fyah", where Lindsay's vocals are more minimal than its predecessor, and its rough and rugged instrumental for maximum DJ damage. Another banging addition to the Black Acrew crew - yes!

Review: And just like that, Mr Curi jumps on the scene with his debut release for the new and fledgling 3000 Digital imprint. This is hybrid gear; "Rock The Bells" is a house tune is structure that has been taken over in its low-end by squealing pseudo dubstep bleeps and growls. There's two remixes of the tune from Mikey B and Brent Kilner, the first being an aggressive had house version and the second a power garage take on the original, followed by and finished off with "By My Side" and its alternate set of dubstep rings and waves. Lovely gear.

Review: "Blow", by Two Tons (aka Joedan and Kontent) pays homage to the Johnny Deep movie of the same name - pure as the driven snow. It's also a tune that'll shake your speaker cones, with its rattling rhythms and positively sub-maximal bottom end. Joedan ups the wobble factor on his VIP mix, whilst "Dnt Gve A Fck" is a neon-lit, late night roller. Joedan appears again, this time with his own "No Verse Two" - all sparse tropical beats and grime verses courtesy of MC Shantie. Boom!

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: Jamaica's Equiknoxx have spent the last decade re-inventing dancehall for the 21st century, delivering a swathe of releases that look further afield than Kingston for inspiration. Bird Sound Power is, somewhat surprisingly, their first appearance on vinyl, and sees them pop up on Demdike Stare's experimentally-minded DDS imprint. Featuring a mix of brand new cuts and previously released - but largely unknown - jams, it's a set that impresses with both its' rhythmic dexterity, and its' obvious inventiveness. Their 'riddims' veer from the punchy and rolling to the weird and out-there, with cute electronic flourishes, IDM influences, ambient chords and trill birdsong all adding to the humid, thrill-a-minute mood.

from $1.96
Review: UK grime maestro Terror Danjah has been smashing it ever since his first EPs started to emerge in the early 2000s, and we have to say that the man hasn't stopped rinsing it since. Among other big labels, he's been an integral part of London's Hyperdub unit, but the time has come to spill some truth on the respected Keysound label and here he is with "Juicy Patty", a vocal-led gunshot riddim that literally sounds as if it was recorded straight on the curbside; jacking, stop-start beats and a minimal arrangement make this a true London burner. There's an instrumental mix, too, for the DJs, but the first remix comes from Logos, who shreds the entire structure down and focusses heavily on the percussion, followed by Blackdown's louder, more menacing interpretation for the peak time hours.

Sometime I Share (Space Race Part 3) - (7:35) 85 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.96
Played by: BURNIE
Review: Aside from one recent appearance for Germany's techno-minded Ilian Tape, Djrum has been an integral member of the UK's 2nd Drop label since 2011, where he's been producing mind-bending bass infusions for the post-dubstep era. He's back with "Space Race (Part 1 & 2)" this week, a broken cascade of slithering percussion and sliding pools of low frequencies all fighting against one another for space and movement; it's a sublime bass track that pushes the limits of dance music to its very edges. "Sometime I Share (Space Race Part 3)" reminds us of DBridge's recent material for his own Exit label, and that means a hybrid form of drum and bass that takes inspiration from genres like juke, jungle, and a little bit of r&b. Impressive stuff.

Review: Bristol-based bass enthusiast Sorrow has a reputation as a "moody electronic outsider", at least musically speaking. While this latest EP on his Shinigrim imprint is, predictably, more than a little on the baked side, the young producer mostly steers clear of pitch-black paranoia. Opener "Stockyards" boasts clean, punchy percussion and throbbing sub-bass, but feels breezy rather than stiflingly humid. The same could be said about the swinging, dub-wise "Projekts", while "Pirate Banter" makes great use of ricocheting dub samples and a booming, pitched-down soundsystem "riddim". Even "Arisen", with its' manipulated R&B vocal samples and foreboding bass drops, is relatively cheery.

Review: DBridge continues his consistently innovative vision with a whole stack of newness. We launch into his cosmos with the truly unique "Too Late", a deliciously slo-mo soul record that almost sounds like it's made to appear like it's on half speed. Pensive, gradual and measured with strings, lilting pianos and his own falsetto, it's total future soul complete with two equally forward-thinking remixes from staple label peers Stray and Spacek. Deeper again we hit "Gone Before Dawn" which steps, cautiously, with much more of a barbed tech aesthetic. We hit "Better Than The Pain", a languid sci-fi Heart Drive special and close with the woozy feels of "Coz My Love Is" a record that sounds like jazz, recorded underwater, somewhere near Detroit with Amp Fiddler. Beautiful.

Review: Having recently celebrated their tenth release, Sheffield's Chip Butty have now rounded up the cream of their roster for Chip Shop Vol 1. There are nine bangers featured here, all promising 'hard 4x4 beats mashed with twisted basslines'. They're not wrong either: highlights include label stalwart Dr Cryptic's pounding garage-step sing-a-long "Dirty Dot", the doomily orchestrated wobbler "Marching Powder" by Sekt 87 and the menacing speed garage of "Rude" by Little Mesters.

Review: Gentrification is quite a thing. East London might be full of middle class types fetishising '60s Brutalist buildings like Goldfinger's Balfron Tower. But original resident, and former Roll Deep MC, Flowdan (aka Marc Veira) has something to say about it too. Veira grow up by this tower and to him it's a 'Disaster Piece' from a grim place rather than a masterpiece. This album is his most personal and over this 12 track 'melodic grime symphony', he opens up about a hard knock life that he (and pals like Tinchy Stryder, Manga and Animai) knows better than most.

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: Today's Critical lesson is brought to you by the letter B... Binga, Breakage and absolute badness. First up Breakage adds a rolling booty bounce to one of the many highlights on Binga's album Wasted Days album. Binga returns the favour by looking back into the annals of Critical history and dusting off Breakage's formative 2005 skanker "Staggered Dub" and injecting a cool amount of deep halftime space. Both exemplary examples of remix authenticity. Blimey. Bigness.

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: Tumble Audio is what you would call a truly "UK" label. This is because it deals in just about any strain of British dance music, and from garage, through to dubstep, and post-bass, it always delivers the goods in style. This time it's Archive with five smoking riddims from the depths of underground, and "Keep Guard", along with "Ghana Police" are what you would call true hybrids - the beats are harsh and stepping, while the low frequencies dominate the groove. "Gully", once again, proves that 'bass' music really is a thing by chucking in just about any genre imaginable that falls on the hardcore continuum, and there's even a few remixes of "Keep Guard", one stripped-down Burial-like reinterpretation by Bromley, and heavy-stepping version by Sly-one.

Review: Unless you've been asleep since March or you've accidentally found this review while looking up an old school mate who happens to be called Richie (or Richard) Brains then you'll know EXIT played this mystery out in style. We all had suspicions on his identity but not even the biggest forum nerd could guess that it's actually Alix Perez, Chimpo, Fixate, Fracture, Om Unit, Sam Binga and Stray. Seven men, each one decorated and respected, their skills culminating in a body of work that's part funk ("Game Shades"), part Carptenarian cinematica ("Sk8 M8") part woozy, wonky halftime ("The Blips") part grime ("Bring Dat Back") part D&B beauty ("Voyage") and all gully. It's going to be hard to find a release more deserving of the title 'album of the year' this year.

Review: It seems crazy to say, but the first edition of Tectonic Plates was released ten year ago. Pinch's label has been going since even before that, but the music on the label still sounds new, the sounds don't cease to amaze and inspire each time we listen to them. This digital reissue of the first Tectonic Plates is much arrival, seeing as we've misplaced out original CD copies somewhere up the attic. On this glorious, jam-packed dubstep bible you got mythical tunes from all the big boys: Skream, Loefah, Pinch, DMZ, MRK1 ans the rest of the original crew. Unmissable!

Review: Here U Wot Blud have reached out all the way to Austria, home of rising star Robsi Mantoura. Having spent some time in the UK absorbing the bassy sounds of Julio Bashmore and his ilk, he now gives us EPs like Spread Love. "You & I" is warm, skippy house with extra sprinkles of garage and wobble for good measure. Pelikann toughens it up with starker snare rolls and chants whilst Melinki goes for orchestral DnB and Pavv opts for straight up wobble. Finally the original "Love" is more soulful with nods to 90s garage and even some sax!

Review: Officially the funkiest man to emerge from dubstep, Swindle shows his sporting side with a precision-timed Latin EP. "Connecta" will draw you in with its samba drums, arresting your senses with honeyed vocals, firing horns and climactic build. "Copacabana" dons its budgie smugglers for a Rio-riddled jungle stepper while "Villa Mimosa" takes us back to Swindle's darker side with a beat that somehow rolls and steps with its instance percussion and mischievously off-kilter halfsteps. Finally DJ Q shuts the party down with his trademark twisted garage stamps. Gold medals all round.

Review: Flowdan (aka Marc Veira) was, along with pals like Wiley, JME, Skepta, Jammer, Double E and Footsie, instrumental in breaking the UK Grime sound 15 years ago. Today he insists that it never went away, and he certainly hasn't either - always keeping it real and, now with new album Disaster Piece looming, stronger than ever. The first taster from the record is single "Horror Show Style", which features a creepy, doom-laden track over which this former Roll Deep MC delivers his unique, time-bending flow. Produced by the mighty Splurgeboys, this track has got us well hyped for the LP!

Review: The Stanton Warriors-run Punks imprint is back with Welsh act Aloka who serves us with two cuts of razor sharp breaks. "Typo" is definitely inspired by dubstep with its dark aesthetics and low frequency pressure and ragga-style vocal samples. Brooklyn's Doctor Jeep gets on board for a remix of the track which gets more of a hands in the hair party starting vibes with more bass pressure and druggy whirry melodies to whip the crowd into a frenzy.

Review: Although Appleblim has been missing from the scene and out of action relative to the golden years of dubstep, he's still very much a legend in our books, and every time some new material from the man pops up we just can't help ourselves from being excited. The bass legend is back on the foundational Tempa label, home to so many stunning releases by himself and other luminaries such as Benga and Skream, and "Minus Degree" sees the producer take a conservative shift toward the surreal and the experimental, hardly using any beats of low end at all to get his point across. "Move Them", however, takes a dance shape and ends up sounding like a distorted, off-kilter dub techno joint of the highest order, whereas "Twist It Down" powers down the engines to deliver a deep, chimerical sort of dub house that simply must be played out on a big, nasty soundsystem.

Review: Teklife Vol 1 represents the first release for footwork trailblazer DJ Rashad's new Lit City Trax imprint, created in collaboration with DJ Spinn and associate J-Cush, and a label which promises to be the definitive label for Chicago's well established footwork scene. At a massive 20 tracks this album is a meaty proposition, and it's testament to Rashad's talent that the album is entirely free of filler. Showing the producer's talent for swelling low end and threadbare percussion, album highlights include his excellent DJ Spinn collaboration "We Trippy Mane" with nods to Juicy J, the analogue mayhem of "She Gonna Go", the manic 303 and 808 assault of "Da Life" and the juxtaposition of smooth Rhodes chords, horn samples and furious percussive rattle on "Kush Ain't Loud".

Review: With EPs for Sounds Of Sumo, Hot N Heavy and Tumble Audio to Daniel Evans-Jones' Majora project, the Bristol producer inaugurates the Service label with two originals and a slew of remixes. The lead, title cut brims with tropical, dancehall vibes and cut up vocals which Hagan, Roska and Tony Quattro all take turns in remixing. Hagan reduces his mix with healthy 'wub wub' bounce, while Roska reworks the drum programming for a groovy drum track - Quattro on the other hand goes large in his remix exhuming the Baile Funk. The alterative tune "Moves On" is deeper and staccato driven with urban vocals, some detuned, sharpening its edge. This is remixed by Killjoy who turns in something spacious and shuffling - clak clak.

Review: Rinse's own Royal T has been listening to UKG for as long as he started stealing bootlegs from his brother. With the advent of online mixtape technology and the worlds of grime, bassline and UK funky at his feet, the Southampton-based producer's latest offering is a filthy culmination of sticky dancefloors, hastily-printed rave flyers, pirate radio and the dawning of crisply ironed trap. There's a feeling of nostalgia about the whole EP for times when listening to grime at the back of the bus really was the pinnacle. Nostalgia too often comes with negative connotations - rather than stale Royal T brings his own modern edge to the retrospective bubbles he creates with each track. It's a celebration rather than a museum piece. Long live the spirit of the underground.

With exclusive cuts and versions firing from all the label's most consistent contributors, it covers all relative corners creatively; from Killjoy's gameshow grime "Turnt Ones VIP" to the chiselled, sinewy two-steps of Terror Danjah & Zed Bias's "Telepathy" via the sheet metal snares on Flava D's "Break", this collection goes further than representing a forward-thinking imprint but also documents exactly where bass music is heading in the future. Grand prix business.

Mind Of A Dragon & Cellardore - "Thoughts" - (5:58) 129 BPM
from $1.96
Review: The information surrounding Mind Of A Dragon is still as imperceptible as ever, and this new EP for Slime adds to the mystery in a delightful way. Even the tunes, a harsh blend of garage, bass and nu-skool jungle, are dusty and covered in a layer of mystique that gets our appetites going good and proper. "Emotions" itself is a powerful garage stormer with a those inimitable r&b samples and accompanied by an intricate percussion flex, The stand-out moment for us, though, is surely "Not The Same" simply for its woozy, shape-shifting bass and forward-thinking beat arrangement. A winner.

Review: Stanton Warriors were pleasantly surprised when a demo from Brazil arrived on their doorstep. The demo was from none other than Bombo Rosa, possibly Brazil's only break beat-style act, and so impressed were the Warriors that they signed the guys to their very own Punks label. Their first release for them, Make It Bang, is a jaw-dropping short, sharp introductory jab in the solar plexus. Sounding like nothing else around right now, the track is four and a half minutes of stop-start dirty breaks with a red blooded Latin twist. A dancefloor monster if ever we heard one!

Review: Dominic Butler and Mark Yardley's partnership is one of the most consistent and reliable in bass music. 18 years and still delivering pristine low-end grooves, Rebel Bass summarises their current command of garage, house, breakbeat and beyond; from the down-pitched vocal coating of "Loving Me Wrong" to the classic house evangelism of "Hoping" by way of the cowbell frenzy of "Get Low" and the slower, organic "Speakers Moving", while each cut is individually primed for late night floor-flattening sassiness the track arrangement also works perfectly as a deliciously rolling album. Their strongest, slickest body of work to date. Rebellious with a cause.

Review: DJ Zinc's Bingo Bass chalks up its third Structures releases and it comes from the main man himself; Benjamin Pettit's long awaited return is taking shape. Prior to these Structures releases, Zinc's last flurry of music came out in 2010, and the UK producer's sonic palate is seemingly evolving with this current stream of funky, UK bass and big room house sounds, just check out opening track "Right Here". Bouncy, knees up drum and bass is the order for the DnB mix of "Back Up" while dark UK funky rears its head in "Back N Forth". Stepping drum and bass makes its way into the EP with "Boppa" alongside the electro of "273" and breakbeats of "Fraction".

Review: Enter Valencia massive Rootless with their debut EP for Modern Ruin! For starters, "Da Fock" is straight-up footwork science, a glitchy piece of Chicago-inspired futurism backed by a jazzy melodic wave and an excellent sampling style; "Say To My Face", on the other hand, manages to drop a little jungle magic into the juke pattern, while "Stepper Lines" ups the aggression and gets the beat pattern rolling even more aggressively amid a delicate sea of melancholic tones. Fresh and recommended!

Review: Wow, well who would have expected a collaboration by two heavyweights in the bass game from different eras? This new Gutterfunk EP has brought together the talents of post-dubstep pioneer Addison Groove and jungle/d&b legend DJ Die; you can already imagine what these three blasters will sound like and, yes, you're probably close. "Standard Affair" is a footwork bomb that's given the extra dose of hypnotics, the former coming from AG and the latter from Die; "Legion Of Boom" is even more clearly a half-way house between the two artist's specialities thanks to some subtle jungle breaks, and "Dr Know" injects a layer of 303 magic to a deep and intricate juke pattern. Militant!
