Played by: Alert
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: Halftime warrior Amit returns with more skank-packed slo-mo drum & bass. "Spring Cuttah" is Amit at his warmest, sunniest and Tubbiest; weighty plodding kicks and soulful sighing sax, it's a true nodder of a jam. Remix-wise Bristolian headhunter Addison Groove mashes up last year's heavily supported halftime cut "Operator" with even more amen angularities. Incredible scenes.

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: A crucial skank-bullet last summer, Madd's Redders-stamped digidub bum-slapper "Peng Teng" gets the treatment from halftime's man of the moment Moresounds as he dilutes the juice with more space and trippy pace. 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.

Played by: ARtroniks, Seven, Alert, Indiji
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: Dom Tarasek aka Commodo has already appeared on perhaps the biggest dubstep labels around, and he made his name from the string of releases on Mala's Deep Medi Muzik - not exactly a bad place to start your career, that's for sure. However, he's now branching out to other quality households, and this new LP on Black Acre feels just right in every single way. Right because his deep, brooding sound fits ever so well with the rest of the label, and right because How What Time flows perfectly as an album unit. There are three tunes on each side of the two slabs of wav, and they work as perfect, tidy trios that carry the same sort of leftward bass sound, one that never goes to deep as to become abstract, but also never gets too violent as to become silly. All in all, it is masterfully executed dubstep for the 2016 palate. Killer.

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: 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.

from $1.99
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.

You trust a veteran like Ledge to deliver the goods here like he does on "Underground Railroad" with its immaculately programmed industrial percussion textures hammering away backed by chilling atmospheres and powerful bass pulsations. After first premiering on Youngsta's Rinse FM show over a year ago, we're glad this finally saw the light of day.

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".

Review: Tempa are always a good litmus test of where the UK bass scene is currently at. 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.

Review: In case the last wait of a year wasn't quite long enough between Subaltern outings, Taiko leaves us hanging even longer (16 months) this time. File under 'all good'... We've had an Albion release to chow down on in the meantime and beats like these really are worth waiting for: "De Maya" is a powerful hypnotic tabla session, "Flummox" throws cosmic textures into the dub melting pot, "Stick Fight" teases us with breaks through some seriously intricate percussive arrangements, "Game Show" while "Game Show" is more of a magic show, building and twisting with subtlety as the percussion becomes the melody and the melody becomes the bass all before your very eyes. Looking for more techy grit? Jump on Mentha's remix of "Stick Fight".

Review: Russian dubstep producer Sqz Me makes some emotive and haunting deep dubstep we must say. "Beautiful" samples Justin Timberlake's vocals put through harsh redux that wail over layers of smoky pads and powerful bass pulsations. "Inner Place" is minimal and glacial, like getting vaped and going on an Arctic expedition.Closing this thing out is "Missin Element" which reminds us a bit of bass music classics like "Hyph Mngo" and is absolutely sublime. This young Siberian producer is definitely one to watch out for in 2016.

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.

Review: Uprise supergroup LSN step forth with their debut album; a stylised rummage through the genre vaults to paint a picture of the most exciting edges of bass music and how everything tessellates. Just within the opening four tracks we're treated to Massive Attack style barbed dub soul ("Oblivion"), rolling breakbeats ("Shelter"), subverted jungle ("SMBU") and deep, pneumatic dubstep ("Vibration") Deeper again we hit restrained space-aged poetry ("Earthtone") sci-fi Autonomic soul ("Demons") and deep, Samurai-style D&B ("Stillness") And that's just a potted selection of this highly accomplished, consistently detailed and arranged album. Whatever shade of bass you're rooted with, LSN will join the dots for you.

Review: The 21 year old Manchester dubstep wunderkind Hypho is back on esteemed UK bass imprint Punks run by Stanton Warriors. He offers up "Fiyah" firstly, which is dark and dystopian street level futurism: plain and simple! Second offering "Scatter" shows more restraint but is equally as powerful in its exploration of sci-fi bass therapy; only difference is that these aliens are smoking some serious kush! This young gun really is one to watch.

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.

"Wildfire" see-saws on a pivot-like atonal riff over a lolloping sub/kick flow and big splash rimshots while "Lintumies" is a spacier jam where Clanger-like aesthetics play games with your head and the bass keeps kicking you out of orbit.

Review: Chris Innasound comes through with some phat, smoking tunes, and somehow manages to land on a label with a very similar outlook, the unstoppable FatKidOnFire. Four tunes, four walls of beats and bass for your body and mind; "It Is What It Is" takes a slow, marching rhythm and slaps a fat wallop of bass underneath it, and "What You Need" sounds like its natural development, a frozen, harmonic bundle chunk of noise with a rhythmic pattern. "Re-Entry" rolls and flaunts its more tribal percussion in front of a subtly squelching load of mutant bass, whereas "Between The Lines" takes after the deep and heady dubstep that both the artist and the label are closely associated to. Heavy gear.

Review: Duckem and Taztical have already churned out their fair share of bass hypnotics over the last few years, but his newly found collaboration on Foundation Audio marks a new wave of skills and surprises from the duo. "Kokkino Horma" sways its wailing strings over cascading beats, and somehow the producers manage to convey a feeling of the earth's elements colliding against each other. "Pindus Dub" is less murky and more uplifting, although the track is still heavily wound in a mystical Eastern sort of stagger from the heights of the Himalayan cliffs.

Review: Birmingham dubstep producer Jay Krease has appeared previously on Dead Noise System, Korrupt and Foundation Audio so we can trust the DJ on this one. The Mind Control EP serves up five offerings of deep and dark bass therapy. We particularly enjoyed the smoked out future dub textures on "Beat Goes", the rolling low frequency doom of "Artillery" or the jazzy, liquid drum and bass of "Symmetry" which is reminiscent of classics by Alex Reece or Peshay. There's a killer remix of "Mind Control" by Gaze III as well, check it!

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: 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.

Review: Last spotted messing with the Wu, 6Blocc takes us even further back in time for his own dub side of the moon. A true Floydian odyssey rebooted for the modern bass lover, subtly is the name of 6Blocc's game: the paranoid, way-ahead-of-its-time "Run" gets a lick of 303 and swinging breakbeat, "Speak" retains all its dreamy majesty while the iconic moans and cries of "Sky" are stretched out from midnight fumble to 24-hour marathon. Elsewhere the till-chiming riff of "Money" is smothered in blankets of sub while "Colour" is galvanised with a classic Dig Your Own Hole era big beat. To some this may err on heresy, but to others this is a trip like no other. See you on the other side.

Lighter - (4:22) 140 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.99
Review: When it comes to deep dubby halftime, few labels are as reliable, forward-thinking or exciting as Amit's Amar. Here we find the label boss giving Scrilla the keys to last summer's hummer "Fatty Batty". Adding more melodic layers and cool double-ups on the kicks, Danny's turned in the perfect remix that pays respect to the original while taking it further into pastures unknown. Flip for "Lighter", a straight up dubwise joint with a kick so steady, reliable and dependable it could give you a reference for a mortgage. Serious.

Review: Enrol yourself in a dubstep history lesson given by the Defenders label. This 28-track collection features a selection of dubstep that's an informative reminder of the fertile scene which was once at the cutting edge of contemporary, club focused dance music. Artists to feature include Zed Bias, Horsepower Productions, Ghost, Roxy and Darqwan to name a few - and for an introspective waltz down memory lane (or excursion through pastures new) This Is The Roots Of Dubstep Vol 1 is a good route to take.

Review: Music with a message: after a string of free releases, Czech dub warrior Kletis comes correct with his first official release and a kindly reminder that, even during these most cynical times, not everything is sucky. His music, for instance... From the church crumbling shudders and shakes of the title track to the fluffy emotional tones of "Clouds" to the out-and-out tech fissures of "Mayhem" there's not a negative word to be said. The only thing that sucks here is having to decide which track to drop first.

Review: The young RealRoots Int'l drops their third EP since Wasteman's opener back in March, and its newcomer 3WA who lays down some jah-fuelled science for the corner dwellers. "Kame" sounds like the outside of a Jah Shaka rave - all woozing bass and minimal percussion - while "Rumours" is more grounded in the grime end of the spectrum. "Try" heads down the dubstep terrain with its stop-start groove and swarms of bass, and "You Can't Hide" injects some much needed sci-fi karma into the mix - our favourite of the lot apart from the opener!

Review: Everyone's gotta have an angle and Nomine's is certainly unique - he makes deep dubstep with Far Eastern influences. His latest missive boasts a sound that evokes mystical temples, secret rituals and ninjas. The sparse and brooding "Blind Man" is based around a movie sample where a young whippersnapper learns the ways of the spirit from a wise old master. "To The Sky" again features minimal arrangements peppered with bassy belches and mystical vocals courtesy of Lustina, and finally "Nomine's Robot" wraps up the release on an uptempo note - all housey kicks and rimshot percussion. Classy and unique!

Review: Mala's album project comes to light with a healthy amount of expectation. The DMZ / Deep Medi Musik main man has always carried a reverence amongst the dubstep scene for his unfussy approach, staying true to the sound he helped forge in the nascent days of the genre while avoiding over-exposure or buckling to hype and trend where so many of his peers succumbed to change. As such this project sees the man well outside of his comfort zone as he tackles a specific album project whilst sticking his head more clearly overground to work with Gilles Peterson on an adventure in Cuba working with local musicians. This is most definitely Mala's music, and the spiritual, tribal nature of his productions to date only gets enhanced by the influx of Cuban folk sounds. This is no simple case of ripping samples and dropping them for token effect though; the percussive patterns and licks of piano, guitar, horns and voice are completely interwoven into the South London pressure as if they were always meant to be. It's testament to the pure approach Mala takes in the studio that he manages to balance these unlikely bedfellows to such fluid effect. Undoubtedly there will be naysayers who will argue that in doing an album of this nature Mala is diluting his purist vision for dubstep, but in truth the approach and end results he has managed to conjure up bring a revitalising, fresh angle to the genre, which is what it needs in abundance. There's maybe a lack of the "shock of the new" factor as Cubano music is not exactly a stranger to UK dance music forms, and Mala isn't exactly switching his own stance too drastically, but ultimately that doesn't matter. The whole album is direct and immensely satisfying to listen to, capturing the alluring spirit of South American folk tradition and empowering it with the transcendental nature of dubstep in its finest form.

Review: Finally... Someone's written a track about your mum: "Operator" is a sweet, sassy slice of modern jungle with wounding slo-mo kicks decorated with pretty splashes of amens and trimmed with delicious sub bass. "Fatty Batty" meanwhile, which is definitely not written about your mum, is a ridiculously funky contemporary bass jam with thundering kicks, cheeky horns and a groove so chunky you could feed a family of four for a year... And still have leftovers.

Weighing at 24 tracks, Foundation have pulled out all the stops here... A seriously detailed piece of bass music futurism.

Review: Levelling up with every release this year, London's K Man leaps over from Circle Vision to Surfase for his debut solo EP. "Bubbles" leads with a beautiful jazzy dreaminess that lightly sways back and forth with a gentle touch but it's the vocal version with fellow Londoner Janset that's likely to see the club plays as she spits deftly and delicately, giving the track the perfect amount of edge. "Regret" continues the sadboy theme with its introspective, fluttering melodic echoes while "Voyager" takes us deep into space with Joker-style funk to the insistent - but never overpowering - bass.

Review: With a cool sense of symmetry, both parties deliver an original before proceeding to remix each other. Originals-wise, Krease's "Passenger" fluctuates with a subtle sense of funk thanks a palpitating sub that scuffs up and down scale beneath big alien bass groans and sledgehammer kicks. DNS's "Oscillator", meanwhile, takes us so deep into the dungeon even candles won't work. Spacious beats and roomy elements weave and wander with raw paranoia; it's headphone heaven. Remix-wise, DNS fills "Passenger" with gritty, guttural bass textures while Krease gives "Oscillator" a whole new sense of energy and direction with added drum swing. Four really interesting cuts at the forefront of dark dub, USV have curated something special 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: 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.

Review: Having served a vital function in testing the temperature of bass music at key times since Tempa first started operations at the nexus of dubstep, the latest instalment of Tempa Allstars succinctly lays down a crystal clear definition of where some of the most exciting noises are being made, and its based around the industrial sound sources, grime intensity and techno experimentalism of artists such as Wen, Batu and Alex Coulton at this time. All three are on searing form here, whether it be the broken swerve of the former or the dread-filled 4/4 thrust of the latter, and likewise Innasound, AxH and Peverse bring their own continuations of the hardcore continuum to bear to devastating effect.
