Review: Destination "Afrika" via LA... Here we find Sub Slayer Skanx delving deep into jungle heritage with a muddy roller that packs the same foggy, radar-ridden breakbeat punch as the Meat Beat Manifesto's "Radio Babylon". For a more contemporary dub twist head for 6BLOCC's remix; stripping things back to a nagging 4/4 sub thump, it's the perfect blend of trad dub and stark future-minded bass music. Elsewhere we don the white gloves for the rave-tastic "Boom" while Eek-A-Mouse goes under the sample scalpel on the swashbuckling "Dub War". The junglist massive are on fine form right here.

Review: Funky break veterans Skeewiff are back (having apparently won 'Best Electro-Swing Producers Of The Year 2012 award), this time with a bumper packed collection of their remixes of cult 1970s British library music (one of their favourite sources of breaks). There's lots of loungey exotic action to choose from including the sassy, brassy "Scarper", the trippy "Hyper Hippo", the driving, clenched teeth disco rock of "Jet Propelled" and the many collabs with original bandleader Syd Dale (the best of which being the kitschy D&B of "Supermarket Hustle").

Review: Stex's journey around the solar system touches down closer to home as we hit "Earth". With the jaunty, glitchy acid-based groove you could be fooled into thinking the landing will be bumpy, but with a heaven-sent synth blast on the drop, it's actually one of Stex's smoothest inter-planetary connections to date. Looking to land with a little more glamour and mischief? Head for the percussion heavy vocal version. Happy landings!

Review: Homeboy Stex lands on his favourite Young NRG Productions for another hip-twisting, ear-shattering house-breaks appointment. This time we get the original mix, a 4/4 bric-a-brac of shuffling percussion, squawking low frequencies, sci-fi atmospherics and breaky electro tones, surely making this an instant classic on whichever dance floor it lays its clutches on. However, the Filter Tribal remix is the one, and it makes the arrangement even more of a pleasure to listen to, adding in a fine concoction of straight hi-hats and, well...delightful tribal bongo drums!

Review: Young NRG boss Stex continues his party-primed planetary series with "Mars". A little more sedate and understated than his usual swag, "Mars" thumps softly with a warm kick drum pattern and subtle use of a string sample. Hankering for Stex's more trademark chaos? Don your white gloves, toot that whistle as loud as you can and jump straight on his "Acid Break" remix. Heavy.

Review: Nu-funk's most intrepid astronaut Stex hits the seventh planet from the sun, and he does so with a keen sense of urgent trance. Rushy, clipped arpeggios control the funk shuttle's coordinates while a snappy, driving break powers the journey. As we eke closer to the 27 mooned planet Stex initiates the Deep Dub drive. With subs so smouldering they'd make your mum blush, it's as unforgiving as the icy, planet itself.

Review: Dub Police are on fire as of late, and this latest unmixed collection of tracks from the one like Subscape really speaks for itself - over 35 tunes long, he paints a fine picture of the latest in bass news; his initial "I Need You", coupled with other tracks like "Just Coz", "Graveyard Shift" or "Beautiful People" are perfect examples of his own skills as a true modern bass scientist. There's plenty to be heard here but if we have to pick some highlights, then we'd go with Pixel Fist's "Let Yourself Go", a raucous wobble-stepping jungle mutant, "Beneath The Fold" by Mydas, another bass-emitting belter, or even "The Promise" by Breakage, a surprisingly balearic 4/4 spin-off. In all honesty though, Subscape gets it right from start to finish.

Review: It's a meeting of minds on this long player with rootsy German label Root Down releasing this much-anticipated album from Korean-German 'future dancehall' act Symbiz Sound. There's plenty of tunes, 15 in total here, many of which featuring either the talents of ZHI MC or Feral Is Kinky. Highlights include the sweet sounding lovers rock of opener "Soundboy Dead", the bassy, ghetto-hop of "Ruff Ride", the digital dancehall of "Down Under" and the sheer tribalism of "Bad So".
