Review: Developing quite the reputation in breakbeat circles, Kwerk consistently has delivered full-bodied bass workouts since the very beginning. Naturally this is no exception; opening with a pacey, full drum intro, we're soon pushed deep into a series of halfstep twists. Coated in a well applied spoken word sample, it keeps you on your toes from start to finish. Remix-wise Sneaker & The Dryer add a little old school cheekiness while Olmec extends the space and sonics for something a little more progressive. Get to werk!

Review: What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas... Unless you're a Vegas-based producer with serious skills, like King - then it's only appropriate to spread the word as far and wide as possible. Taking grime sensibilities, mixing them with a dash of US ghetto-bass spirit and delivering them through a Brainfeeder loudhailer, King's carved a very distinctive niche over the years, summarising it neatly on this razor-sharp debut LP. From brutally barbed bashment ("Riots") to mournful, naval-gazing classic electro homages ("Getn Up") via uncompromising trappist naughtiness ("Off The Wall") Koncepts is a very well considered and arranged album that works on floors and feelings alike.

Review: London breaker Kool Hertz is currently riffling up the nu funk ranks with his b-boy style technique. Serious emphasis has been put on the drums on both tracks here; classic breakbeats with body and swagger, they're the perfect vehicles for the weighty grooves he's thrown down. "Funk Dizzy Jam" splutters and spits with choppy bass and vocal twists. "Don't Hold Back", meanwhile, takes a well-known Chemical Brothers vocal sample and introduces it to an obese bass lick and a heaving horn section.

Review: Futurebound's Viper continue their adventures into the wider world of bass by signing the exciting new act Koven. Having broken through on UKF's mighty streaming machine, this is the band's first full release. Opening with a cascade of lush guitars and soul-prodding vocals, we're then pushed headfirst into a rocket-fuelled bass drop. Need a massive D&B reboot? Then jump up and down on DC Breaks' remix.

Review: New Zealand is popping some serious funk prospects right now and Junkfood is home to many of them. Here we find label mainstays K Lab doing a fantastic impression of Glitch Mob thanks to some sharp lyrical patter from The Mic Smith and a serious of depraved bass funk streams: One waspy and pert, one robot-dying flavoured and oh-so-saggy. With some lovely echoed trumpet and guitar flickers and an instrumental thrown in for good measure, Junkfood have belied their unhealthy moniker and provided us with something rather nutritious.

Review: A massive double header of searing bass action from the fledgling Ramajam Recordings on their latest release. Bristol's Killa Tingz step up first with a infectious combination of new school dubstep bass and old school hardcore - if The Prodigy had made "Out Of Space" now it might sound a bit like this. Next up, Vital Elements and Ruffride turn in a bit of proper drum & bass in the 90s mould, as amen breaks tumble across swelling subs and a huge rave-inspired breakdown - absolutely fantastic stuff.
