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: Oh gosh... Having shaken and stirred Wu Tang Clan and Pink Floyd already this year, 6Blocc now gets stuck into a big old pile of Portishead. Maintaining the Bristol band's icy, introspective, deep burning barbed soul throughout, his twists and turns are well considered and highly respectful; the additional vocal textures and digidub bass to "Glory Box", the Full Cycle flare of his jungle mix of "It Could Be Sweet", the Final Conflict style 1990 breaks on "Machine Gun", the sub aquatic halfsteppery of "Mysterons", the feather-ruffling drums on "Wandering Star"... 6Blocc has dissected each tune to re-position its magic for a new generation. You'd be a Dummy not to check them (not sorry).

Review: Bristol's bass supremacy is under threat from Sheffield's formidable Project Allout, who have literally gone all out by rounding up 21 heavyweight jams to prove it. With such heavy ammo who is foolish enough to try and resist? Not us, and if we really had to pick, some of our favourites would be Adam Mac's doomy, empty rainy street vibes on the haunting "Cold Side", the accelerated, pinged up, soulful 4 x 4 banger "Deep" by Deadbeat UK and the percussive dancehall infused synth bass monster, "Likkie Vibez" by Juzlo. The Allout revolution, don't fight it, feel it!

Review: To be honest, it's about time that Logan Sama had the space to compile his own series of mythical London club Fabric's, Fabriclive series. The grime DJ started his career back on the equally important Rinse FM back in 2002, and has been an important part of the club's development over the years that saw grime and dubstep blow up. At number 83 in the series, Sama drops a selection of tunes that are wholly representative of his DJ sets in Fabric's Room 1; the mix contains tunes by everyone from grime pioneer Wiley, to vocalist and producer JME, and a whole load of lesser known names that have kept the grime scene evolving. This is the real deal, there ain't not other like it around these days. Recommended.

Review: It's been over a year since Feonix blessed us with some originals. Understandable, what with the never-ending assault coming from the LSN collective he's part of. Making up for lost time, here he lays down five hurricane-fresh originals. Ranging from dank and slimy ("The Underground") to sweaty, sci-fi and techy ("Taro"), it's an on-point range of deeper, rolling bass sounds. Take time to climax with the co-lab finale: hooking up with fellow LSN cohort Simetra, "The City" punches with raw gutter funk while "Losing" takes us down a dusty old soul chamber to wonderfully melancholy effect.

Gravity Dub (Hebbe version) - (5:09) 138 BPM
from $1.96
Review: After a debut on Dubtastic back in 2013 - one that we'd enjoyed thoroughly if not for its lo-fi approach to dubstep - things have been quiet from Kodec. But, you know what they say: quality over quantity! This new five-tracker for Version Collective is as banging as his previous release, and drenched in the same sort of rootical vibe that just seems to go so well with the genre as a whole. "Elicit Dub" starts off the dubwise bass movement, a calm, pulsating presence that develops into a fuller bass shot in "Xiao", and then more violently still on "Dub 6". "Gravity Dub" is a sci-fi dub cut with a nostalgic sort of twist, and the tune is remixed and stretched out by Hebbe's version. Bless.

Wrong Move - (6:01) 125 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.96
Played by: In Flagranti
Review: Ayman Rostom has really taken to The Maghreban, with a succession of singles for Versatile and his own Zoot label that have shown him fully capable of bringing his sampling talents to the realm of house, disco and techno. The latest missive from The Maghreban comes on Black Acre, a label Rostom has previous with after that superb library music LP as Dr. Zygote a few years back. Two tracks deep, Lose It presents all that we love about The Maghreban; the title track sees a classic "girl I'm starting to lose it" phrase lifted off an early jungle classic from Boogie Times Tribe assembled with a monstrous analogue bassline and plenty of feverish effects tweaking in the mix. "Wrong Move" is just as smart, delving into the darkest depths of rugged breakbeat science.

Review: Thou shalt covet thine mysterious Fiend as he steps up to Dubtribu with his debut album Seven Deadly Dubs. Digging deep into the roots of dubstep and what the dynamics truly mean, each track takes us back to the earliest incarnations of the genre with pensive, meditative weight, flow and arrangements. Highlights include the soft-but-firm doubled kick pummels of "Chernobyl", the organic drum rattles and weaves of "Devil's Lettuce", the pneumatic mechanical drum funk of "Wrath" and the deep space soul of "Venus". Thou shalt not sleep on this.

Review: Sitting pretty in the triptych heat of halftime, jungle and bass, Nuvaman continues his fractured sermons on Artifice. Instant neck-snappery abounds on "Strength" as amens rifle back/forth/inside/out over dense pads. "Bada" is a more restrained piece of pensive drones and tones while "Throttle" gets up to speed with stark bass and a spacious two-step swing. Finally "Mutu" takes us back to bed with the trippiest low-end designs of the EP. Welcome to the future.

Say You Change - (5:15) 140 BPM
from $1.96
Review: Some of the best dubstep is coming out of the USA the days, and producers like Juss B are testament to the genre's rise in popularity over on the other side of the pond. But, the Americans have their own take on the genre, and "Can't Stop", for example, is different in texture to a classic British cut; here the beat is closer to hip-hop, and the same goes for the moody, break-driven "Resurrection". "Lean" unexpectedly chucks in an Eastern vibe to the mix, and "Say You Change" sounds like a Riff Raff tune that's been given a heavy dose of tranquillisers.

Review: US based deep dubstep purveyor AxH has sure come along way; it's not like you hear of Boston, Massachusetts being a hotbed for innovative future music. This guy have proven there might just be something in the water (or the weed!) out there, given their credentials ie: releasing on London kingpins Tempa and now for N-Type's Wheel & Deal. Starting out with the spooky mood lighting of "Devil Shogun" complete with unsettling kung fu movie dialogue, "Fading Away" then gets stuck into some dystopian low frequency explorations with some help from ARtroniks. "Boneyard Keeper" pursues some more familiar dub flavour translated via dark sci-fi aesthetics. Promising stuff.

Review: Stepping away from their diligent Deep Dark Dangerous development, Truth return to the mother label with four seismic slabs of sub-soaked deepness. "Jade Helm" is a wandering swagger jam that's given character and life from subtle chime trembles, "Sound Killah" is one of those mid-track game changers when the bassline suddenly switches up with real pensive menace. "With Us" marches forth into a stark dystopian future, our scant feelings of hope raising as the drum rolls really tense up on the breakdown. Finally we hit the EP's title track; a rolling, percussion-heavy cut laced with ghostly prayer horns and shimmering skanks. Superb.

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!

Remix-wise Bristolian headhunter Addison Groove mashes up last year's heavily supported halftime cut "Operator" with even more amen angularities. Incredible scenes.

from $1.96
Review: Young Belgian upstart Nigia makes his Abyssal debut with a beautiful five track document; it's a deep meditative affair from the off as the stretched strings moan and wheeze mournfully on the opener "Above Clouds". Deeper again "Heart of The System" drives us into the heart of the dance with a hypnotic percussive rhythm and pulsating sub while "Time Machine" follows suit but with cathedral level echoes and reverberation. Those looking for more of a techno-like insistency to their dub should pay attention to the persistent plods of "Time" before we climax with a meditative herb homage "Rastafari". A highly accomplished label debut.

Review: Long-time conspirators Malleus and Saule return to Gourmet with three slabs of head-nodding bass dynamite. One collaboration and two originals, all skills are showcased here. "Bad Kids" was teased well over a year ago on dub, instantly winning friends with its spacious dynamic and purring low-end. "Kalakuta" takes a completely different approach as Saule takes us on a trip down Havana's dustiest alleys with a horn section in-tow. Finally Malleus gets his percussion all squelchy and wet as he flexes his trippiest (and Frenchiest) of designs on "Parce Qu'il Est Mort". Innovation.

Review: Undisputed godfathers of UK dubstep Horsepower Productions are back with another full length; their first in 12 years since 2004's To The Rescue LP. As Tempa themselves put it succinctly: "Crooks, Crime & Corruption" draws from numerous facets of the UK underground and further afield in order to take you on a compelling, wholly immersive journey. Highlights include "Justify" featuring Harry Keyworth which sounds like Jah Wobble versus Ry Cooder, the deep spiritual house of "Bak 2 NY" or "Kurisoity 6" and the business as usual, street level bass therapy as heard on the raw "Change" or the pure fire junglist anthem "Criminally Insane".

Review: You can always rely on Tribe 12 for dub authenticity. Here we find LA mainstay Wulf working the controls with two deliciously deep numbers. "Ego Dub" dusts off a really cool spoken sample and uses it to trigger and palpitating, rolling sub-rich groove that sits perfectly between club and home. "Refuse" takes us deeper down the root chain with lush washes of entwined vocal harmonies and horns over a soft-skank rhythm. Sprinkled with enticing doses of percussion, instant immersion is guaranteed.

Here they present their selection of highlights from 2015 and this broadly diverse selection is proof that bass is in rudimentary health. Standouts amongst the six tracks featured include Epoch's raw and doomy trap-stepper "The Ville", the futuristic footwork of "Aut" by Cliques and the creepy, abstract beats of "Closed Minds" by Biome.

Creeper - (5:29) 140 BPM

Review: After plates for Osiris, Lion Charge and Ruff Cut, Bristol pairing Jamie Schildhauer and Paul White bring their Kaiju project to the Deep Medi label. Lead track "Justice" has been a much sought after dubplate for some time, and a fine example of Kaiju's innate understanding of dub science implementing only a few elements - haunting flutes, floating synths and crisp percussion - with deadly precision. Justice is served! Complementing this, Kaiju conjure some truly monstrous atmospheres with "Creeper" - if Demdike Stare turned their hands to steppahs it might sound like this. Deep Medi is nearing its 100 release and every one of them have been superb.

Review: Now officially signed to Deep Medi, Schildhauer and White's Kaiju project are set to break the seal on a year of release silence with a whole new slew of dubwise dynamics. Tapping into the true roots with a real taste for organic elements, both cuts will resonate with the most ardent of classicist; "Burn Down Babylon" is all about the well-plucked bass and humming persistence of the organ. "Wrong Tings" takes us even deeper down the instrumental route with spacious drum elements, bulbous bass and crisp guitar lines. Warm, deep and wholly immersive, there's some awesome science going on here.

from $1.96
Review: Slow baked in lashings of hype and hearsay since 2013, Gantz and Commodo's remixes have long since been sought after since Commodo premiered them over two years ago. "Free Focus" gets the trippy percussive treatment from Commodo with purring block strikes and wiley wonks on the lead tones while "Buckwild" contains drum arrangements with time signatures that will perplex as much as appeal. To put the importance of this release in perspective, the vinyl releases were already fetching over L30 within a week of release.

Review: Compa hails from Manchester, but his productions and his sound are quite deeply imbedded into London's rich dubstep dynasty. The young bass wizard is back on Mala's Deep Medi Muzik, starting off with the murky stepper riddim called "Truth In Sound", a wreckage of beats and sonics that is dissolved by the mutant waves of "Noctule". "Tibetan Chant" is more of a tribal dance ritual to the Gods, and "Four Four Claps" turns things nastier and away from the deeper waters that we're used to hearing Compa sail on.

Review: Moonshine's manoeuvres in the deep continue to impress with this highly accomplished collaborative remix album. A throwback to their original Steppin' Forward album - released March 2014 - the Jamaican label have given each contributor the parts to a fellow label mate's tune and asked them to get creative. The results are as consistent and progressive as the original. Every track is a highlight but stand-out essentials include the bubblesome digidub of Bukkha's juicy switch on Tuff & Powa's "Outlaw Music", Adam Prescott's sinewy shakedown of RSD's "Know U 2" and the foamy subs and wriggling melodica on Roommate's version of Alpha Steppa's "Shinkansen".

Review: Polish Violin-snapping badman steps up to Moonshine with an album-level dispatch of authentic contemporary dub. Each cut is coated with a conscious vocal sheen and comes complete with a heavier, floor-primed version. Those looking for their souls to be soothed should jump straight on the beautiful "Hold Unto Jah" while those eager for something a little more carnal and blatantly weighty should get acquainted with the fittingly titled "Mammoth Dub". Bass bliss.

Review: Of the many fresh faces that have come to light on Pinch's Cold Recordings, Manchester-based artist Acre has represented one of the most diverse propositions with his spots on Lost Codes (and more recently Codes), but he also has managed to follow label mate Ipman in bridging the gap over to Pinch's original institutional imprint Tectonic. After the Icons EP back in 2014, Acre now steps up with an album which fully explores his unique take on UK bass traditions. There is a lot to take in at first glance, from experimental excursions such as "Spiral" through to winsome beat studies such as "Always Crashing", with plenty of room for moody attitude in a reflection of the ever mutating definition of British soundsystem music.

Review: British Columbia's deepest export Abstrakt Sonance has enjoyed spins and support from the likes of Mala and Cotti, Seven and J:Kenzo over the years. And it's really not hard to hear why with stark designs like these. "Open Heart" plays with space as AS throws down an array of unique designs and laces them together with off-beat funk, "Soldier" lives up to its name as its percussion militantly charges a rhythm with no relent, "Sometimes" is a warped skanker with a woozy bass purring beneath scant bouncy elements while "Harder Than AMF" hurls us into the fires of bass Hades with its uncompromised saw tooth savagery. No dubstep stone left unturned, there's something for everyone right here.

Review: Calling your track "Heart Of The Soundsystem" is a bold move... But it's a move that LA new-blood Tetrad executes with serious skill: the bassline pumping with thick dub blood, power surges through every cone with life as it worms between sub and higher octaves amid a dense array of Pablovian textures. "Well Maybe Dub" is a much deeper, denser construction with a slow-and-steady kick that's wrapped in ten-tog duffle subs. One for lift off, one for come down... Hearty on.

Review: Mala's Deep Medi Musik maintain their high standards in 2011 with the welcome return of VIVEK on a plump four track selection that matches his earlier release Pulse. What Eyes Down lacks in titular imagination, it more than makes up for in terms of refined dubstep preshah! Opening with "The Big Bang" Vivek further displays a penchant for simmering cinematic tension, as growling subs prowl the nether regions beneath a sparse half step riddim. In contrast "Spread Love" demonstrates Sharda's prowess with crafting intricately programmed beats that flex with a UKG swing but retain a stepper template. What really impresses is how the heavily dosed up purple vibe gradually engulfs the track. Elsewhere "Sirens" envelopes the straight up, crisp 808centric drums in an array of delayed droning effects, before slipping in a lazily skanking melody, whilst the title track is Sharda showing off his sub bass capabilites.

Review: Once again staying loyal to Uprise Audio, London/LA producer Asylum is back in town with a new four-tracker. Perhaps he's been heading out to the Californian desert on peyote adventures a la Jim Morrison, who knows, but Native American references pervade throughout this new Native EP. It's certainly one of his more meditative offerings, but we need music for our heads as much as for our feet. Highlights include the sinister midnight hum of "Things You Don't Know", the tomahawk scalper "Chino" and the synthy smoke signals of "Kill Room".

Review: London bass wonder kid Indiji makes his return to Uprise Audio for his second release to dat, and it's no surprise given the impact that his previous bunch of tunes had on our eardrums and spinal chords. Much like his first effort, this latest EP is the sort of dubstep that threatens to lose total control and go wobble, but instead keeps things relatively contained and corner dwelling. "Surgeon" itself is a pure head and body massage made up of low-ends and old school rave squeals, while "Establishment" is a little more stepping and DMZ-esque. "Politika" is a dark, moody bass bubble that swings back and forth, and "Vacuum" sucks all that up and blows it back out into a midnight, curb-leaning hybrid tune for the UK lovers.

Review: The Moonshine Recordings crew return with another platter that matters, brandishing a double drop of skank up business to nice up any dancefloor. "Cool Me Off" finds Murda and Tuffist providing the perfect digi dub minor key bed for Roots and Rose to lay down their heartfelt harmonies. Junglists will flip for the B where Murda goes on a solo flex to add his Chopstick Dub twist with amen-rattling precision. One listen and you'll find this an appropriately titled slab; you will need to cool off after dropping this!

Review: A second record to this Junior Dread name comes in remix form, with Moonshine Recordings plucking versions from Joseph McGann & Sam Barrett's Gorgon Sound project. The two Peng Sound artists deliver a harmonic remake of cheerful flutes, light backing vocals and walking basslines with keys to match. Hungarian producer DJ Madd, who has close ties with the Bristol's Black Box, sits Junior Dread's vocals deeper in the mix which lightly expels the word 'freedom' behind a wall of bass and 808 kicks, while frenetically designed percussion will keep the feet moving while the heads are down.

"Secrets" is the early bird soundtrack, all crisp, dewy and full of hope while the oceanic ripples of "Fisherman's Dub" sees us reeling out for a trout but catching a barracuda. Finally we lean back and chill with "Benzo", all flutes, tubular subs and lazy beats, it's an instant soul soother.

Review: Continually keeping the pressure up with ever more diverse explorations of the 140 bpm landscape, DJ Madd has been on a productive run of late. Alongside quality 7" releases for ZamZam Sounds this release comes to light in a sly nod to the evergreen "Sleng Teng" riddim. "Peng Teng" features Redders dropping a fiery vocal rant, while Madd rocks a set of tidy jungle breaks, trap drum machine rushes and plenty more necessary ingredients for a surefire club smasher. "Cachit" keeps the intricacy levels up with some very tightly wound drums, while "Gunshot" rides on a rootsy skank alongside the more modern elements. "Champion" meanwhile brings a little dancehall swagger into the mix, rounding off the EP in fine style.

Itoa ups the tempo with a raw tribal finish on "Catchit" while Madd lays the flex down himself on his 2013 cut "Burning Dance". Switching out the big clunking halfsteps for a skippier summer rhythm, it's another seasonal smash for one of bass music's most consistent creators.

Review: Long-standing Estonian beat carver Bisweed has cooked up two seriously sweet treats right here. Both generous on the piano and soul dynamics, both cuts are too weighty and widescreen to be filed under the 'deep' banner... "Baby" oozes some class with its humanoid harmony sample swooning us into the night while "Fay" leads on a more dominant jazz piano sample that gradually unfolds into scrumptious summer stepper. Gourmet Beats have gone and got themselves a new head chef right about now.
