Opium Riddim - (4:47) 140 BPM
from $1.87
Review: Ago's been delivering some seriously deep and mystical dubstep vibes as of late, never shy to drop in some killer bass, though, so be warned. "Backlash" is a perfect example of that, a slow and calibrated tune, on first appearance, that unleashes a noxious level of low frequencies after its first drop, and if it wasn't for the stepping, rhythmical groove of "Trust Inc", we would also put it in that category. "Opium Riddim", on the other hand, is murky, swamped-out and subdued by a warm coating of subbass, a layer of sound that contains the sporadic percussion in place. Recommended!

French Toasty - (3:27) 102 BPM
from $1.87
Played by: Zecher
Review: Apparently, this EP is hot property around the dubstep circles; word on the street is that these two slammers have been in-demand for a while, but only available as dubs until now. Sleeper's output is always top notch but, we have to say, these new late-night bruisers are among his very best, and worthy of some true head-nodding. "Seagulls" has got all the right elements for a raucous showdown: a gratuitous amount of low frequencies, a wailing, foreboding texture, and that classic dubstep snare-attack. "French Toasty" is no less powerful in its delivery and, in fact, the bass on this monster is even more poignant, and it's easy to why these two tunes are just so sought-after. Go forth and destroy.

Review: Hello is the serious burns unit? Yes it's Juno Records here, we've been in direct contact with J Kenzo's latest Artikal release and have lost several layers of skin. Get an ambulance right away you say? Just after we've listened to this a few more times! "Battlefield" twitches a ruddy sub that bounces around beneath big system horns and a strident energetic drum groove. "Zbantu Shake" is a much more stripped back stepper that's all wooden kicks, trippy flute flurries and ladles of thick treacle subs. Soundboy killing material.

Review: New artillery of dubstep swelters from the on-fire FatKidOnFire imprint - yessir! Militant bass vibes and deathly percussive stabs all-round with this new four-way compilation from a bunch of newcomers, and it's all very much in the typical spirit of the label. "Fear Spud" by D-Operation Drop is like a war march guided by a band of low frequencies, Iskeletor's "Charizard" is a wild, venomous slice of neuro-funk with a broken beat, while "S.90" by Saule is a more typical dubstep anthem a-la DMZ, and Bukez Finezt goes more acoustic with his harmonious bass experiment tagged "False Friends". Bad.

Redshift - (4:13) 140 BPM
from $1.87
Review: Scene sergeant Youngsta returns with his first full release in years. Tag-teaming with rising producer Cimm, the vibe is deep, roomy and constructed with a stately, unhurried alien funk. Every element considered and fine-tuned both tracks take us deep into a meditative mindset without ever pressing the snooze button: "Split Minds" rolls with bass tones so warm they almost bounce while "Redshift" takes us into an even dubbier pasture with some great attention paid to the sporadic rhythm elements. Beautiful.

Computer Sound - (4:35) 140 BPM
from $1.87
Review: London-based dubstep wizard Silkie has been on the front lines of Deep Medi Muzik's output for almost ten years now, and it's safe to say that the producer is now a veteran of the scene; his deep, cerebral take on the genre has always been a breath of fresh air to London's musical tradition, and U.K. dance music on the whole. He returns to his roots with this new three-tracker, spear-headed by the mean lean of "It Wasn't You", a tune so cold and merciless in its approach that it sounds more like a military march. "Jah Man" inevitably brings the dubwise vibes to the plate, and "Computer World" delivers some fine digital ammo. Fire!

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.

Von D - "Analog Sound" - (5:34) 142 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release

Egoless - "Bubble Beat" - (4:49) 140 BPM
from $1.87
Review: This is the first time that Egoless and Von D team up for an EP, but already we can hear them syncing up perfectly thanks to their love for deep and sweltering UK bass. In all honesty, Von D's "Analog Sound" is a traditional dubstep tune, the sort of heavyweight swelter that knocks you from side to side and gets your head nodding from pure kinetic instinct - this will surely go down well at the DMZ showdowns. Egoless' "Bubble Beat" is something slightly different and, although it is also part of the 'classic' dubstep template, the tune breaks that groove pattern into something quirkier, more leftfield and reminiscent of Egoless' other choice material.

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!

Life Cycle (Quantum Soul remix) - (6:04) 140 BPM
from $1.87
Review: The Pressed imprint is fast making a name for itself by recruiting some top talent across the bass game. For this week's showdown, the label has recruited Medison & Ruckspin, two producers who like to do way down low when it comes to bass frequencies and percussive rolls; the lead tune "Lead Cycle" is a sombre work of beauty, a mid-tempo dubstep sweller guided by Rider Shafique's hip-hop sensibility. Quantum Soul provides the remix, and the spoken word is stretched out, stripped down and liquified amid the harsher beats that dominate the arrangement. Top marks.

What I Want - (5:08) 140 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.87
Review: Frenk Dublin is back on his native Dubstep Rotterdam, carrying with his a pair of deep, wondrous sound sketches that manage to blend the best of dubstep and, very appropriately, some puristic dub in the same vein as artists like Rhythm & Sound. In fact, both "Wispelturig" and "What I Want" are more on the futuristic roots side of them game, rather than anything dubstep-related; the echoes are out in full effect - literally - the beats are broken, and the textures very much heartical in their approach. There's even a little bit of a step to these grooves, and they wouldn't sound out of place in some dark corner of a Jah Shaka set.

Review: Heads roll out. Spec returns to Uprise with four more disarming deep dub jams. Taking off where his "Titan" EP left us last year, his attention to space and pace is second to none. "Metaphysics" teases with soft focus strings and an abyssal bass groove, "Crossbreed" takes a trappy sound for the topline and wraps it round his ocean liner-sized dubstep halftime swing, "Shadows" takes us right back to the dungeons with its warped pads, croaky bass and heavily reverbed riff, finally "Lazy Days" reveals Spec's funkier side with a more complex drum arrangement, softer synth textures and cool vocal elements deep in the mix. High Spec business through and through.

Review: Sam Bartlett, or simply Samba as he likes to be known, debuted earlier this year on Encrypted Audio, and he's back already with a follow-up for the young, unstoppable Crucial Recordings, the label run by Sleeper. If you haven't heard this guy's tunes yet, then you might be in for something of a startle; moreover, if you thought dubstep was dead, then this dude will make you change that opinion within a matter of bars. The opener "Malignant" unleashes a sequence of eerie bleeps over a foreboding, stop-start rhythm that takes a fresh approach to the genre, with the same going for the relatively more startled and distorted sonic arrangement of "Un". "F'n" feels like the natural third tune to cap this magnetic EP to a close, a strange and twisted concoction of sounds that have been processed to their very limits. Recommended and tipped, yo!

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: While UK dubstep maverick, Eshone, hasn't released an inordinate amount of music since his debuts began to surface during the first wave of 'post-dubstep', he has been around for a while now, and we look at him as a veteran of the style; the producer is always capable of turning up with the goods, and he's by no means an outlier among his fellow bass friends. Here, he comes through utterly correct with two deep and mystical slices of half-step grooving, with "Corked" and Teleport" both transporting the listener into a state of trance thanks to their swampy aesthetic and placid glow. We love them, and we want more, more often, from Eshone.

Review: White Peach continue putting out this quality AND QUANTITY of great music, then there's no telling where this imprint might land in the coming year. Most importantly, they're recruiting a selection of artists who really stand out from the crowd, and who have managed to solidify their own variation of bass music. Bristol's Sorrow is one such artist, and "Brawler" is precisely the sort of gnarly beat attack that we're always on the lookout for her at Juno HQ, which is proudly followed by the equally destructive wobbles of "Saw Manz Nan". "Skengman Tantrum" is a rolling, itchy sort of bass mutant, and "Fruitella" makes a little nod to the London grime scene, circa '03. Heavy.

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: Moderat's third album, simply tagged as III for the purpose of continuity with their previous two albums on the Monkeytown imprint, took us by the scruff or necks when it was released earlier this year, and we knew it was only a matter of time before we'd see some remixes spring up off the back of it. However, this particular number isn't quite a remix, but an edit of a remix. Yes, very much in line with the label's improvisational vibe. Tech house specialist Solomun remoulds Siriusmo's remix of the track, now a sleek and DJ-ready house anthem with a progressive tone at its core, and drenched in poppy vocals to make it an instant hit beyond the ones in control of the decks. To cap it off, there's one more remix by NGHT DRPS, a jittery, pseudo house groove drenched in vocals of bittersweet nostalgia, along with the original mix of the tune, a Moderat signature-tune, and a live version for added effect. These guys can do no wrong.

Review: Poland-born Radikal Guru is a past master at blending the grizzled, bassbin-bothering sounds of dubstep with deep dub and soulful roots influences. As a result, his releases have an easy accessibility and effortlessly breezy vibe that's almost impossible to dislike. This second full length (his first dropped in 2011) offers more of the same, delivering a mix of dubwise steppers ("Spaced Out", "Different Dub", "Indra"), delay and echo-drenched dancefloor dubscapes ("Subconscious", "Outernational"), and sweet, conscious, roots-influenced songs ("Stay Calm", featuring YT, and the superb Echo Ranks hook-up "Warning!"). It's a blend that guarantees a pleasing, laidback listen.

from $1.87
Review: Los Angeles based deep dubstep imprint is back with local producer Ago, who offers us some more contemplative bass therapy from the darkside. First track "So Mi Seh" features delay drenched ragga samples over a deeply serious bassline and paranoid reefer atmospherics. Second track "That's What I Was Talking About In '96" gets a bit more fierce with its nostalgic, sampled dialogue soon giving way to a tough yet retrained beat assault and intense sub bass pulsations.

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: 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: 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.

Review: Dubtribu is the sort of bold-faced, bass outlet that likes to wear its heart on its sleeve, promoting good music by new, emerging talents from all corners of the dance spectrum. One thing is for sure, though, and that is that they like to keep things grounded in tribalism. Newcomer Guesswerk seems to have understood that, delivering some seriously grimed-out harmonics on the wonky shades of "Hunter", a tune that recalls the early days of Skream and Benga's work for Tempa. "Ghosts" is similarly wayward, mixing up flute sounds with darker, more heartical melodies in the finest of dub traditions.

Review: Duploc's the perfect home to Dark Tantrum's brooding, meandering strain of dubstep, so number fifteen in the label's catalogue feels like a master stroke from the label. The Deep Medi associate is absolutely no mood to dither with these two smoking joints; the first one, "31 Seconds" is an ode to mid-90s d&b thanks to that infamous sample, but it's the track's militant low end that makes it stand out and explode out the speakers and onto the floor. "Space Age" is equally venomous in its tone, but here Dark Tantrums churns out the wobble to its very limits, a fuzzy procession of low frequencies that gives the likes of Coki a good run for his money!

Review: US label Gourmet Beats never strays too close to any one genre, but it's safe to say that it specialises in experimenting with the lower end of hertz scale. They've got an exciting selection of new talent growing by the day, and this latest collaborative EP makes for a certified bass tip this week! Mesck's "BadFuture" is all about that bass drop, Subtle Mind puts in a fine performance, but out favourite of these has to be the more swamped gunshot riddim called "Secrets" by Introspekt. Oxossi's "Malevolent" ain't exactly a tune to be overlooked, however, and that flurry of bass is getting our own heads nodding up and down here at Juno HQ.

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: The Sure State label is never shy to amalgamate new and exciting talent from the bass game. In fact, a look back at their catalogue shows us that they've given us nothing but new artists over the last few years, with all of them being equally impressive in terms of their approach to low frequencies. The time, DJ Variant and Clerks team up for one track each, supported by a collaboration from the two of them, the title track "Neva". That tune is particularly feisty in its approach, and its a classic dubstep sound moulded by more contemporary influences but, don't sweat, that bass is still high and mighty. Dj Variant's "Scratch" is a drum-heavy escapade into the darkest territories of dubwise bass, thanks to its proud dreadlock horns, while "Past Away" by Clerks is guided by a more street-ready grime approach. Killahs!

Review: A relative youngster on the scene, the energetic Koma marks the tenth release of label Instigate Recordings, and he's armed with four killer tunes that sway between the deep and the utterly nasty. First up, "Promise Me" takes a slow and lamenting turn down the eeriest side of dubstep, but still manages to turn over something that'll certainly appeal to the heads, while "Considering" takes a more traditional approach manifested by some pretty hazardous swarms of low frequencies. "Bruk Up" is our favourite on here, a subtly funky, broken bass groove with Eastern chimes, and "I-N-I" ties things off with something that the likes of Mala would be very keen to play, indeed.

Review: Stark, shuddering sounds abound as Denver's Dalek One delivers one of his broadest, biggest EPs to date. As always with Dalek, deep space and shadows shrouding the elements is the key theme running throughout the collection, allowing surprises to creep out when you least expect them... The throaty bass gurgles on "The Fallen", the incredibly restrained drama on the breakdown of "Torture" the dusty twangs on "Dimensions", the list goes on. There are only a handful of artists doing properly innovative deep dubstep right now; Dalek One is definitely one of them.

Review: You sometimes get the feeling Tectonic boss Rob 'Pinch' Ellis finds particular enjoyment in the process of collaboration, be it with younger artists such as Roska and Mumdance or more iconic names like Shackleton and Adrian Sherwood. The latter dub pioneer first hooked up with Pinch for a brace of excellent 12"s on his long running On U Sound label back in 2013, and the clear studio chemistry shown there made the notion of a joint LP a near certainty. Late Night Endless sees ten tracks from Sherwood's deep discography deconstructed by the pair, with the resultant fusion a deft balance of Pinch's urban paranoia and Sherwood's interstellar dub. On tracks like "Gimme Some More (Tight Like That)" and "Different Eyes" it's displayed with devastating mastery!

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.

Chain Reaction - (5:36) 140 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release

Review: Tying Skeptical down to one particular genre is like wrestling with a rattle snake... Stupid and dangerous. Ever since his earliest outings on Ingredients and Zimbalam, he's shown a vast breadth creative ability and complexity from smouldering D&B soul to far-out, abyss-deep electronica. Here Tempa give him the keys to the dungeon as we find him in his deepest, darkest dub mindset. "Echo Dub" is a tight weave of knitted percussion, humming subs and eerie manipulated vocal elements. "Chain Reaction", meanwhile, develops on this with a thicker, more ominous sub dynamic that palpitates with liquid rigidity. The only stupid and dangerous thing to do right now is not pick up this.
