Review: Time for some Taiwanese dub: regular face at Instigate, DTR returns with his debut full lengther and it's nothing short of a contemporary low end odyssey. Bedrocked by rich weight and space, throughout the album he weaves subtle but strong musical elements with a measured sense of detail. From the lilting horn flutters on "Inner Strength" and the trippy tape stop spirals of "Creator Dub" to the mountainous peaks and abyssal troughs of "Kalimba", DTR ensures to immerse, entertain and constantly develop. Modern dub bliss.

Played by: ARtroniks, Alert
Review: London's Uprise Audio is on a roll (mind the pun!) right now with great releases of late by the likes of artists Seven, Dubtek, Joe Raygun, Asylum, Indiji, LSN, Juss B and Spec. This time it's the turn of label head honcho Indiji who appeared previously with the Machine Dread and Darknet/Shake The Foundations EPs and he's in top form on the Purity EP. Starting out with the darkside futurist slow roller that is the title track, you know the rest of the release will follow in sinister fashion and "Hard Dub" (up next) is definitely all that! Finally the Feonix remix of "Shake The Foundations" gets some seriously dark energy happening in terms of its sub bass frequencies plus the twisted sci-fi aesthetic just adds to the drama.

Review: The Kaiju duo first signed to Deep Medi Muzik back in 2015, and the great Mala couldn't have picked a more on-point production pair for his label. Although the two artists are not from the Far East, their music and style seems to have something innately Japanese at its core, a subtle swing that carries the tracks from side to side like a samurai's swing of the blade. The opener "Envy" is the perfect example of Kaiju's ninja beats, swift and conniving licks of percussion that fit perfectly with the r&b vocals emanating from the deeper end of the mix. We're also big fans of "Sloth" because it reminds of the Brixton Mass golden days of DMZ, and "Wrath" for its sliding, metallic folds of pseudo jungle drums. Top gear.

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-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: Time for some proper, authentic dubstep: District returns to Chestplate with three straight up slabs of bass power. "Drowsy" starts with a slouchy funk to the beat before dropping into a fat, fuzzy 2008 bassline that refuses to hold back its playfulness. Both "Street Knowledge" and "Locking Up" are much darker, deeper creepers with lava basslines oozing down the volcanic halfstep drums. The former is all sci-fi and pranged out, the latter peeps down into the dungeon without resorting to type. Drop them after 3am and you'll be nothing short of knighted.

Review: His burnt finger fully recovered, deep-end doyen Sleeper awakes on Crucial once again with four more treacle-thick atmospheres. "Girl Scout Cookies" is a loose stringed swathe through swampy, dense reverse textures and slo-mo breaks, "Akai Headbutt" ignites with score-level chiller impact while the title track conducts a damaged ping test over paranoid waves and thudding 808s. "Ghost" sends us off packing into the darkness with a warped arpeggio, unsteady drums and shard-like memories of rap titans. One of a kind.

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: Oh boy.. Three of modern bass music's finest players collide for the first in a series of collaborative long players on Deep Medi. The results - as you'd expect just reading the line-up - speak for themselves. Every artist's signatures is coded deep into the collection; Kahn's unpredictability and robustness, Commodo's grit and funk and Gantz often unfathomable depths and eastern twangs are all present as we wriggle and writhe to the detuned harmonies of "Crystal Collect", get twisted on the tripped out drum dynamic of "Kibosh" and lose ourselves in the spacious jazz-minded drums of "Unmistakeable". Truly unique.

Review: H.E.N.C.H take a turn for the deep as Gomes makes his debut on Jakes' ever-ready muscle music imprint. Both entrenched in deep sub weaves and a swampy sense of sweaty weight, they remind us why the Dutchman holds the respected position he does; "Dread" takes a classic ragga sample and stretches it out rhythmically over an industrial strength drum arrangement where crystalline hi-hats really bring colour and polarity to the blend. "Ratta" follows suit with a similarly deep approach but with added reverb on the concrete-shattering drums and spooked out spoken word wrapping itself over the undulating bass twists. Gomes may be towering high right now but his feet are still deep in the dungeon... In the best possible way.

Review: Rebel MC aka Congo Natty's well received 2013 album Jungle Revolution now gets the remix treatment by the who's who of the scene. From legends to upstarts, the results are quite impressive. The man is credited as being one of the original UK junglists, setting the foundations for the sound/scene and how it has evolved since, so these guys have their work cut out for them. Highlights on here are the Dubkasm Dragon Slayer mix of "Dub Souljah " with its purist dancehall vibes, the new school representing proper dub with the Jinx In dub Steppa remix of "Nu Beginningz" and the legendary Adrian Sherwood delivering his remix of "UK All Stars In Dub ". There's a lot to get through on here. "London Dungeons Dub (Young Warrior remix - Son Of Jah Shaka)" brings more of the purist dub vibes back again, DJ Madd's remix of "Jah Warriors In Dub" is no doubt the most fierce modern vibe on here while "Nu Beginningz Dubwise (Mungos Hi Fi remix)" goes for the more smoky, low-slung vibes. It one Jah!

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.

Review: South coast soundboy Instance has been bubbling on dubs and streams for a minute or two now. Here he goes legit on the fast-rising Silent Motion imprint with three rolling slabs of ageless deep dub science. "Concrete Jungle" is a real foggy halfstep cut with widescreen bass shrouded by thick pads. "The Dark" switches up the drums with more of an upbeat shuffle and tight piano twirls and tripped out textures. Finally "You Dub" kicks us right up the UKG-hole with skippy beats and iced out FX with a vibe you could easily imagine an act like My Nu Leng busting.

J Kenzo takes control of the selections this time and boy does he deliver the goods; there's plenty to go through as per usual and we don't want to spoil it for you, so you're just going to have to listen in for yourself. What we can say is that there's a fine blend of both J Kenzo's productions and other up and coming bass technicians. If you're a fan of the past series, it would be pretty daft to miss this...

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.

"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.

Over Deh So - (5:09) 138 BPM
from $1.96
Review: Some hot new bass pressure from Kahn on Deep Medi Music which arrives swiftly after Mala's label issued those crucial Gorgon Sound refixes of his 2012 dancefloor killer Dread. Naturally the hood popping riddims are in full effect from the Young Echo member. After a climatic, horn heavy, mutant ragga intro, "Abattoir" drops into monophonic bass roll of drums accompanied by science fiction atmospheres and skittering drums. "Over Deh So" is a more liquid in its groove, providing a fitting alternative, with pulsing, dubbed-out synths exchanging progressions with sinister cathedral tones for a track you could imagine lifting the roof off a rave held by a secret occult of Gregorian monks.

Review: One of the most anticipated dubstep albums of the year. Ruckspin and Jack Sparrow's last Author LP landed when the genre was at its peak, arriving to rapturous effect, setting the bar high. Fortunately this surpasses their previous work and it does so by not conforming to any expectations. More psychedelic, jazzy and organic than the previous album, it's likely to receive the same level of praise by managing to sooth the bro-down casualties while reminding the heads that deep can also mean funky, rich and full of surprises. From Trentemoller-esque droning gothisms ("Innovate") to speedy space grime ("Chant") via rippling digidub meditation ("Jah Live"), this is one very accomplished piece of work.

Review: Apparent Russian garage and techno producer (fresh) Ghostek hooks up with Slava Marchenko, aka Sqz me on Macabre Unit Digital following releases by Ohmtrix and Demon. The collaboration presents five tracks of heavy, digital laden snarling bass cuts that snarl, growl and tear at the speakers. But before we dive into that, it's the stripped back and minimal darkness of "High Roller" that's indeed a jungle infused highlight. "Sidereal" lines up some trademark post-dubstep drums similar to the sounds of early Tessela records on Punch Drunk, while "Dajjal" and "Bogus System" slash and slam their way through hell's gate experiencing a riot.

Review: Delivered exactly a year after his huge "Prototypes" sophomore, RDG delivers yet another clutch of innovative bass constructions. It's clear he means business the minute "No Turning Back" a slinky cut where a stretchy sub wriggles, giggles and gets filthy with a 2008-flavoured wub. "Dillinger" follows on a rolling techy flex where the sub fluctuations are complemented by a Distance-weight sheet metal riff. No letting up till the bitter twisted end, "Vengeful Thoughts" combines trad dub drums with alien screams while "Thank You" does the toxic sludge stomp with T-1000 level menace. Plenty prototype hype.

Review: Surfase bossman RDG takes care to showcase the true breadth of his label, abilities and our sound at large with two beautiful constructions. "Thunder" is all about the big warped bass that undulates with authentic menace, all stern, serious and ominous. "Crystal Palace", meanwhile, is premiership chill material as RDG dusts off the pads and teams up with Chessman O-Dessa for a blissed out post-match massage. Back of the net.

Review: Belgian badness.... Artoniks returns with two more intriguing moments in contemporary dub. Both tracks experimenting the amount of space that can be laced around and between the kicks, there's a unique flavour throughout: "Torodial" goes on a delightful half tempo wonk with one distinctive bass tone providing the melodic thrust while "Shifted" goes for more of an electrified slug vibe with an array of bass tones that wouldn't go amiss in a Hatcha or Caspa set.

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: 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: 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.

Sunbeam VIP - (5:18) 105 BPM
from $1.96
Review: Japan's Takeaki Maruyama's dark, deep and sweltering pseudo dubstep has been around for longer than you might think. Before being signed early on by Mala for his own Deep Medi Muzik, Goth-Trad was releasing cutting-edge bass science on labels such as DNA Kalacta and Popgroup Recordings. His return to Deep Medi is a significant one, and "Sinker" is likely to be one of the best tunes that he's made in a while - those bouncy, fluttering swirls of mutant bass are docile yet vibrant and possess a sort of subtle menace to them. "Sunbeam VIP", however, is a pure corner-dweller's delight, a brooding little bass monster with enough subs to gravitate you off your feet and into hyper-space. Another winner from both artist and label. Quality assured.

Review: Will Benton's label, FatKidOnFire, has a seriously heavy rep for delivering only the most forward thinking productions by the edgiest producers. Each release only has a catalogue number and that's the way it should be - no clutter, just underground sounds. Chokez is the latest to grace the FKOF ranks, turning in this uber meditative four track single. He was discovered by accident when Kaiju uncovered a bootleg of their own tune by this cheeky Londoner... Highlights include the sub-heavy ancient orient vibes of "Ras Samurai VIP" and EP highlight, the deep and dubby headnodder, "Madda".

"Sweat" is all about the big drum swing where the toms sing in harmony and the track rolls with such a funk it's impossible not to dance. "Sugar" is even sweeter thanks to its ever-mutating dub bassline and stark weeping horns that foretell a future we're not even ready for. Trust us; this one's going to pop hard.

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

Review: If you're into grumbling grooves, bass as thick as half-set concrete and drums that sound like no other dubstep producer's, then Biome's "Cypher" EP is so up your street it's built a granny annex upside your bedroom. The title-track is Biome at his grumpiest; all slug bass and anvil halfsteps. "Rumble" flips the switch with a genuinely unique beat that nods towards hip-hop or quarter-speed jungle much more than it does dubstep. "Sentinel" goes back to the deep dungeon lab with a swaggering half-step and a bassline seemingly made of a swarm of wheezing wasps, while "Stone Throw" maintains that deep, minimal technoid flavour but with more emphasis on some interestingly pitched drums. "Man Made" closes the show with yet more unique rhythmic arrangements and an eerie prayer call that's so cold it could summon the spirit of Cthulhu himself.

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: Los Angeleno Oxossi has been plying away at his craft for the last couple of years, with his debut release on Banana Stand Sound in 2015 and now for Sleeper's UK based imprint Crucial Recordings. "Solace" delves into the exotic, all full of esoteric charm like an opium haze and featuring Rider Shaffique's spiritually enlightening monologue. "Reflections" up the ante a bit with some well rolled bass frequencies and an infectiously wonky melody, both snaking away in densely reverberated bliss. Finally "The Tempest" gloriously crosses over from dub into something else altogether with its mesmerising harp melody, but just wait until that snarling sub bass sets in; pure fire bro!
