Review: Prescott's sound has certainly matured since he emerged in 2010. Breaking through on Nice Up with raw bootleg badness, his gradual movements into authentic contemporary dub have proven his skills as both a musician and a man who understands successful dub dynamics. Highlights across this deep and meditative Liondub debut include the spooked out echoes and trembles of "The Eight Devils", the lonely oriental flutes and strings of "A State Of Mind" and the dark, pensive drama of "Moving In The Shadows". A true dub ninja, Prescott's rise is one that commands complete respect.

from $1.49
Review: District deliveries seem to land but once a year, and each one has been a full-frontal, multi-style show stopper. This is no exception as we find him exploring the true spirit of dub on "Roy's Theme" by way of a slow and steady 4/4 that kicks through the wonderfully mournful sonic sludge. "Aftermath" continues this pensive theme but does so with gurgling sub bubbles and an array of iced-out mechanical flourishes. "Tempest" completes the set with the darkest message of the EP thanks to its electro bass murmurs, brutal halfstep and vicious FX. Exceptional contemporary dubstep.

Review: Fat Kid On Fire come though with their seventh release, this time by 17-year old Parisian bass-wonder, Argo. Sharp snares, brutal kicks and razor sharp bass feature on the deep and atmospheric "Hundred", while "Plan B" utilises a sinister vocal sample which takes things in a very dark halfstep direction. Machine gun sonics, savage walls of powerful low end and driving percussion make up the last original, "Seek", while "Asylum" gets a remix from Living Proof, who turns in a real head nodder worthy of Argo's originals, accented by some tasty dub influences. Highly recommended!

Review: Kudos-enriched bass site Fat Kid On Fire follow up their Un/Known album earlier this year with their first full single release. With such a stamp of authority, and the fact it's been penned by the never-failing Dubfreq, this shouldn't need much of a hard sell. Each cut tickles a different corner of the dance; "Next To Me" shimmers with delicate vocal dynamics, "Selenky" offers the peaktime saw-tooth swagger-punch and both "Excuse Me Officer" and "MSH" leaning back on a funkier skank flex. Each cut really shines with same enthusiasm, clarity and wit as FKOF itself. This could be the start of something very special.

Review: Belgian bass baron Clearlight steps up to Subaltern with four deliciously deep slice of contemporary dub. The title track sets the agenda; all loopy and lolloping, its percussive dynamic is both nagging and unique. "Jata" continues the off-beat hand-drum theme on a more spacious flex. Complete with an emphatic vocal call to arms and spooky vocal textures and sudden horn flourishes, it's a cause for instant dance hypnosis. Elsewhere we get icy and mournful on "Muddy" while LAS rounds this off nicely on a remix tip with a cool broken beat swing version of "Circular Thinking".

Review: BANG! Time for the next Dubstep Allstars compilation - the only source of true bass delights and quality underground rhythms from the UK's capital. 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: Deep Medi's Turkish mastermind makes a comeback on the Innamind imprint with a pounding, raucous bundle of hefty kick-snares. It's the kind of tune that gets people into an utter state in the dancehall, and one which you'd imagine Mala dishing out. His remix of Lurka's "Refresher" is equally as piercing and doubly nasty. Highly recommended!

Uniting artists from all sides of the oceanic dub pool, Steppin' Forward documents bass music and dub culture's furthest, most expansive potential. From Compa's undulating bass wriggles and reverb synth shots on "One Lion" to the heavy, gurgling low-end menace of Violinbwoy's "Echo Park" this is guaranteed to resonate with all sides of the dub spectrum.

Review: From the label who gave us My Nu Leng and Adam Prescott comes another super talented artist - Belgian Artroniks. Fresh from big support from the likes of Compa and J:Kenzo, he makes his Mindstep debut with five outrageously deep slices of modern day dub. From the bulbous bass bubbles of "Afterlife" to the early Orbital flavours of "Inverse" via the darker, more dungeonesque vibes of "Dissonance", this shudders and shakes with serious low-end luxury. There's nothing dissonant about this whatsoever!

Review: In a broadening of signings for Deep Medi Musik, A Taste Of Struggle (to give them their full title) are a fresh duo with a distinctive cocktail of R&B, dubstep and trip hop that manage to channel the strongest facets of all those genres and arrive at something distinctly leftfield and utterly sensual at the same time. A blunted haze hovers over the low slung beats and woozy chord tones, the heartfelt vocals cutting through the mix with bittersweet tales of modern urban living. Managing a classic approach whilst being surprising at the same time, the wildly fractured piano funk of "What I Need" says all that needs to be said about what a strong debut album this is.

Review: Chameleonic Bristolian Kahn continues his peerless run of releases with a killer self-titled release for the Blackbox label that's filed alongside his Deep Medi and Hotline transmissions in our affections. The immediate standout track is undoubtedly "Badman City" which features the incomparable vocals of Flowdan, the Bug collaborator who was sampled on Kahn & Neek's superb "Percy". Whilst Flowdan's delivery on that Bandulu cut was lifted roughly from his barrelling live MCing, here he's in notably more menacing form. Rider Shafique and fellow Young Echo acolyte Jabu also provide vocals with the latter's delivery on "Snake Eyes" sounding somewhat akin to Tricky aping Mike Skinner. A bold release from one of the UK's most impressive talents.

Review: Konvex has been mesmerising us with his voodoo-infused sound on a variety of labels and now arrives with two new bombs on Wheel & Deal. "Antimatter" takes things down a minimal route, with a stark, but cleverly layered, tropical digital drum pattern escalating to delirious heights. Wayfarer takes the tune into meatier, stop-start dubstep territory and "Parallel" awakens Konvex's techno influences for some thumping good er, thump. Solid.

System Reset - (4:16)
from $1.49
Review: Following last year's gargantuan "Set You Free / Gorilla Force" double A, Chestplate don Distance unleashes another epic EP. On the first two tracks we find him in two distinctive moods: contemplative and icy on the stark, stuttering "Broken Dawn" and grumpy and gritty on the distorted, riff-heavy "Andromeda". Both, as you'd expect from the dubstep bastion, carry serious weight that will resonate with DJs of all dub styles. "Untouchable" meanwhile is raw haunted house material thanks to the evil vocal sample, harrowed bass, cobweb pads and muscular halfsteps, and "System Reset" is the perfect counter; a stargazing stepper that shimmers with nuances of early D&B science and trembles with a delicate vocal - this will especially resonate if you're a fan of dBridge and Instra:Mental. Highly recommended.

Review: The last time we heard from Belgium's premier bass peddler Digid, he was getting all Biblical on us. This time round though, he's sticking to a template of deep reggae delivering a seven-track mini album of spaced out dubs. His production skills are fearsome with tracks like the synthy "Silky & Smooth" displaying a gleamingly pristine finish, "Righteous Soldier" incorporating a faint ska influence and the title track having a forward-looking anthemic quality.

Review: Brooklyn-based bass dealers Tuba blow their sub trumpet with a rich collection that spans their impressive history so far. Ranging from the meditative steps and jazz shimmers of Subreacher's "Future Target" to the techy breakbeats, sub-soaked steps and dreamy breakdown of D-Operation Drop's "Origami" via the ghostly, cavernous resonance of Below's self-title nightmare soundtrack, Tuba have curated a fine selection that represents their clear and confident contributions to the ever morphing and mutating dubstep sound. If you've not picked up on any of these yet, now is most certainly the time!

Review: Celebrating his Tempa debut with an expansive four-track banquet, AxH is cooking with nothing but the most authentic heavyweight flavours right here. "Destroy" is instantly timeless as we're stripped back to the bare bass riddim and thundering kicks and claps. "Giant Footprints" is more groove focused as we swagger to the resonant halfstep and craggy, nagging hook. Further on we immerse ourselves in loopy hypnosis on "Everdine" and invest in bitter sweet drama on "I Feel Safe". Something tells us this is only the beginning of a perfect relationship between AxH and Tempa.

Drain by Mikael on Innamind Recordings Cue Track
Mikael - "Drain" - (4:51) 140 BPM
from $1.49
Review: One collaboration, two solo pieces, three examples of Innamind's continuous dedication to the endless vaults of deep bass creativity: this Las x Mikael EP is highly accomplished. "Dem Break" is peppered with all manner of percussive devices and melodic counter-textures. Heady and hypnotic, it's clear both artists' styles complement each other. Las's "Need Fire" adopts a much heavier stance. Referencing the big drum swing and jazzy undertones of producers like Zed Bias, it's an instant whisk back to the early 2000s when garage was busily giving birth to the ten stone baby that is dubstep. Mikael completes this excellent package with the demonstratively damaging "Drain". A walloping halfstepper with groaning, gurgling bass and paranoid sheet-metal pads, it's a one-way ticket to the darkside - and you'll never want to leave.

Review: Next level bass business from LAS and Gantz as they pair up for one mind-bending collaboration and flex their solo skills for one track each. "Firepusher" comes complete with a crazy sub that wobbles uncontrollably filling the space created by the ultra-minimal drum presence. Strings and ricocheting percussion slowly emerge from the background, creating an energy that's not suggested at the start. Moving on, LAS's "Malfunktions" is just as much techno as it is dubstep. All telephone rings and madcap acid squiggles, it's an instant back-huncher. Finally we hit Gantz's "Second Nature". Tapping into his Turkish roots, the familiar eastern strings are subverted over a trippy syncopated riddim as we plunge deeper and deeper into the sonic abyss.

Review: Burgeoning half-step D&B producer Epilleptech steps up to Terra Null with this immersive EP of psychoactive rhythms and pulses that carry the torch from the Autonomic days. "Nyctophobia" does a fine job of dirtying up its basslines while all around patter crisp drum lines and spooky atmospherics, before "Natural Selection" heads into a more overtly unhinged head space that revolves around an existential speech sample. "Peru" goes down its own path into intricate percussive lines with a tribal twist about them, both spiritual and menacing in the same bar, and then "Premonition" delivers the finishing blow with a slow-paced lurch leaving all the more room for the bass to growl out.

Review: Riddim Fruit return to the source for two stunning remixes of past successes. DJ Alias steps up first with an impassioned take on John Hendicott's 2011 dub homage "Babylon Shall Fall". Swinging with luxurious low end merit and cool organ flourishes, the groove pulsates with instant charm. Further on we find Jayglo at his most meditative and moody with a smoky, late night version of Dephicit's "Duality". Opening with sludgy, trippy tones, we're soon pushed into a treacle-thick bass jam that's not dissimilar to a premium Tipper cut. Quintessential remix vibes.

from $1.49
Review: Deep Medi Musik's Commodo has remained defiantly anonymous, with little information out there despite the three critically lauded releases for Mala's label in recent years. Resurfacing once more for a timely Deep Medi transmission, the producer is giving nothing more away here on the three track Space Cash EP which brandishes some brilliantly ghoulish cover art courtesy of Tom J Newell. The title track sets the tone, commencing like some lost '60s spy thriller before degraded drums swagger drunkenly into focus and call a heaving bassline into action, whilst the vicious "Straight Reptilian" sees Commodo operate on the down stroke, creating an aggressive monster that's filled with a dizzying level of rhythmic detail in full flow. "Wish" retains the degraded feel of its predecessors, ricocheting a recycled soul hook around stuttering half step programming with a sense of unpredictability that never gets tired.

Don't Forget Your Roots (feat Rani) - (6:10) 140 BPM
from $1.49
Review: AMIT has never been a producer who rides with the tides. As one of the artists at the forefront of the half-step and minimal drum & bass scenes, his sets have become an urban legend, somewhere between old-style rave mentality and full-on hypnosis. "Acid Trip" is a techy exploration into the greater depths of electronic music, and being on pioneering dubstep label Tempa, he can afford to get a bit experimental. Fearless and bold, the title track holds tight as it plummets further and further into the abyss. "Don't Forget Your Roots" hosts eerie Dia de Muertos organs playing out a reggae rhythm until a haunted, deconstructed dub bursts into the lower end. Spooky, almost comical sounds from a deadly serious producer. A lighter side to AMIT or are we being too aloof? We'll let you decide.

Review: Thelem returns to Innamind after a few excursions on Artikal and Blackbox with two firing examples of why dubstep still excites and amazes in 2013. "Bring Me Down" has been bubbling since Outlook Festival last summer; featuring the emphatic lyrical warnings of emerging MC T Man, it's powered with such a bulbous bass riff you can't help but swagger. "False Imprint" comes with the same level of gritty gravitas; swapping mic-fronting for a series of psychedelic washes, it's another heavyweight from Thelem. Powerful stuff.

Review: Jahdan Blakkamoore and Metric Man have some serious fiscal fears. So they decided to team up with leading bass-smith Liondub to get their message out there. Thanks to the rich warm skank, gargling bass licks and sprightly synths, their thoughts about the evil paper are made loud and clear. With remixes from Noah D and Marcus Visionary, their broadcast is galvanised furthermore. The former adds a cool, funky west coast synth slides to the vibe while the latter gets slap happy with a cheeky dancehall riddim. Heavy.

Review: Ireland isn't the first place you'd think of when it comes to sturdy soundsystem dub flavours, but Cian Finn is quickly changing this perception with some deep, driving conscious mic craft. It's clear his years as front man for Irish festival faves Intinn have paid off as we're treated to a series of versions, each one paying attention to a different aspect of dub. Highlights include the sonorous hollow tones of Radikal Guru's version of "Ireland Dub" and the raw stomp of Alpha Steppa's "9 Years Dub". Serious soundsystem material!

Review: North England-based Timbah isn't the most prolific of artists, but when he does release something, it's a big deal. Generous, too. Just like his debut on Bad Taste over two years ago, it's a case of four distinctive originals complete with some expert remixes. Unlike his debut, however, this is a much darker, more physical club-minded affair. Each cut aiming straight for the feet and working their way up, there's a great sense of energy and musical mischief throughout... Check the cascading, kerplunk-style arpeggios on "My Head", the savage, metal-style distorted riff of "Thunder Clacks" and the raw insanity of the "Poke Flow" bass that's processed to such a degree it almost sounds human and you'll see what we mean.

Review: Tomas Roels' herbal homage "Haze" gets a very subtle VIP massage. A little polish has gone into the percussion and bass to give it that cheeky head nod to the heads who know the original. Elsewhere we hit "Gunman" and "The Cosmonaut". The former is a frenetic riddim jam with all manner of ricocheting percussive elements and off-beat funk. The latter is as deep and spacious as its title suggests thanks to weeping minor synths and an ominous groaning bass. Three kindly reminders that TMSV is killing it right now.

Review: Repping all the way from Shanghai, UK producer Conrank has cooked up his most explosive beat banquet to date. The moment the uncompromising sub-slams and caustic vocal shot from "Shut Up" fire through your speakers, you know this is going to be next level. Further on we're sucker-punched by the sexy trappist flickers of "High Rollah", we're pulverised by the industrial strength drums of "AMPM", we're sent into dizzy oblivion by his Doshy hook-up "Hennessey", we're surged deep into 808 bliss on "Strap It Up" and brought to a sensational next-level crescendo with the madcap and unpredictable "Clear". Distinctive and wholly original, Conrank's busting some dangerous vibes right here. Get to know.

from $1.49
Review: It's been a while since the young Estonian Bisweed last appeared on Paradise Lost - "Ghosts & Ghouls" in the summer of 2012 to be precise -but he's made up for lost time with this far-reaching six-tracker. Ranging from the off-beat clicks, whirrs and bubbling, aquatic sound design of "Ghosts VIP" to the spacious low-end screams and harrowed groove of "Magnetic Field" via the Mancini-like cinematic samples of the title track, it's Bisweed at his deepest, darkest and most devious. Complete with a step-heavy tripped out remix of "Ghosts" by Ax Farel, this is a very dangerous package indeed. Drop the bomba!

from $1.49
Review: Representing the creativity that's been rife in dubstep since the commercial bubble burst, Elefant Doc has cooked up a beautiful sound that tethers aspects of jazz and soul with stunning bass creativity. "Walkin'" confidently pumps with a cool organ riff and majestic melodic flurries, "Tonality" gets smokier with an infectious off-beat darkness and jazz-primed piano shots, "Street Sheet" is the most arresting of the set thanks to its vast space and emotional chord structure while "Fool Me" is the jazziest of the bunch thanks to its minor chords and infrequent trumpet blasts. Each one sits right at the forefront of a genre that's enjoying its first proper rebirth. Essential listening.

Review: Deep Medi Musik introduce K Man with the machine-gunning Electro Magnetic Destroyer EP. In terms of sub-bass and gnarly musicality it rates up there with recent releases from familiar artists like Goth-Trad, Mala, Commodo and Kahn. The title-cut is an industrial-tinged and deep dubstep melee of warbly basslines, growling synths and beefy drums all wrapped up in a sinister rhythm. Then there's "Propaine", the perfect weapon to wake up the neighbours, and even though its groove is broken, it remains fluid and very duurty.
