Bird In The Sky by Silkie on Wheel & Deal UK Cue Track
Limits - (6:00) 140 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
Review: Long standing Deep Medi player Silkie steps over to Wheel & Deal with three out-of-the-box bass cuts. "Bird In The Sky" is all about the bashy, UK funky style drums and a loopy element that digs deep with hypnosis. "M3000" takes the brutal factor up another notch; all pneumatic kicks and clattering snares, it's a class lesson in minimal mischief. After two rocket-fuelled stompers, Silkie treats us right with "Limits". A modern day sexy jam, all slinky and piano-tickled, it's the perfect way to end the EP, and your next set. Full circle business.

from $1.49
Review: Whether it's as a performer, a producer or a label head honcho, J:Kenzo has never done things by halves, so Artikal's debut long player was always going to be special. 15 exclusive cuts from the label's talented family and friends, this collection of contributions doesn't just document where bass music is at, but where it's heading. Each track is a highlight in itself, but it's cuts like the slinky hypnotic groove and cosmic congas of TMSV's "Scorpion", Sleeper's star-gazing, dub-drenched sub science of "Coxsone Dub", Skeptical's lesson minimalism and aggy restraint ("Skavenger") and Eshone's treacle-like dirge "Qualia" that really represent the depth, scope and vision of Artikal. Designed for the dance, arranged so well it works as an entire listening experience, Artikal don't do things by halves.

Perverse - "Jacobin" - (5:11) 140 BPM
from $1.49
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.

The Cube EP by Feonix on Macabre Unit Digital Cue Track
Mandatory - (6:27) 80 BPM
from $1.49
Review: It's been a minute since North Walian low end warrior Feonix last stepped up to M.U.D. - six months to be precise. Naturally he's made up for lost time with this rule-shredding quintuplet of jams. There's a heavy emphasis on tempo flexing and rifle-like riddims, too, as both the subverted jungle smasher "Heavy Rotation" and the skippy, steppy "Peashooter" both roll and flare with D&B verve. Dungeon-dwelling dubstep purists should jump on the gruff, guttural "Inhale" and the grunty, hooky lead track. For added variety, scope and depth Feonix has also thrown in the 80BPM "Mandatory". Slo-mo breakbeats coded with ominous, paranoid baritone frequencies, it brings the EP to the unique close it deserves. Impeccable stuff; only squares wouldn't like "The Cube".

Kill Room - (6:10) 140 BPM
from $1.49
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: For some upbeat, vocal driven dub for the club OBF delivers the riddims to fill a dancefloor. Highlights include the smooth Beyonce-like flow of "Ladies Anthem", while for the men there's the ragga of "Style & Fashion". Taking a break from vocals there's "Who's Bad", a track which would fit neatly into a Crookers DJ set, while the title-track, "Wild", is whimsical stroll through futuristic dub rooted in old school values.

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!

from $1.49
Review: Orbatak's L Nix follows up his 2011 album BFG with a sophomore set that consummately develops his repertoire, extends his breadth and ultimately reminds us how talented he his. As you'd expect from the album title, there's plenty of scope for gully filth such as the sinewy low end gurgles on "Badman", the ugly warbles on "Bass Ghost" and the alien moans and tears of "187 Dub Street". But the overall message here is one of depth and hidden layers, such as the misty soul and lingering keys of the opener "Murky" and the optimistic pads and vocal sample of "Dead Memories". Bad to the bone; the more you listen, the more you'll find.

Review: Lit City Trax is on fire as of late; with the likes of Lisbon's DJ Marfox, DJ Spinn and Traxman on their roster, they truly are the specialists in representing the fusion of classic and emerging dance sounds from around the globe. This latest EP by newcomer Saga is another fine slice of high-tek funk, and it's great to see that they're also good at spotting new talent. The title track is a grimey, snare-heavy warehouse stomper, and it's a perfect representation of what's to come on the rest of the tracks: gritty, sci-fi-filtered beats and badass basslines. Another winner from the label, and recommended to fans of the current Bristolian wave.

Review: Foundation Audio founder Chad Dubz steps up with his debut album. And, as you'd expect, it's a document of daring dark design. From the moment the anvil-like kicks of opener "Transcending" punctuate with precision, you know you're in for a treat. Deeper into the narrative, cuts such as a "Shaka" and "Dark Ones" tell ominous stories of minor key jungle-minded mischief while cuts such as "Stay" bellow with such a moodiness and such bulbous bass detail that you have to stop and catch your breathe. Further into the blend again we hit cuts like "Witnessed" where dungeon-destined spaciousness plays the lead role, showing the Chad knows the genre and his craft with an intimacy most artists dream of. Debut albums don't come any clearer. Any further questions should be directed to Chad directly...

Review: Powerful contemporary dub from the MindStep crew. Jeph1 provides a perfect spacious dynamics for Leicester's premiere conscious ambassador I-Mitri. Embracing the true sentiments of dub and applying loopy, textured techniques, it's at once heavy and meditative. Remix-wise Dubkasm gets his digidub on, Trashbat soothes our soul with slinky, soulful future garage breezes and The Illuminated take the groove down to the darkest dungeon possible, providing some great space for I-Mitri's vocal. This fire is going to burn for a long, long time.

Review: This EP finds Kevin Martin zooming in on some of the themes of Angels & Demons, the long awaited new LP from The Bug, naturally showing a diverse approach across the spectrum of his dread-filled half-step swagger. Two versions of "Void" drape themselves across the first side in a heavy-lidded fog of distant melodics, static interference and restrained beat business, while on the flip "Black Wasp" likewise takes two strung out routes through submerged menace and laconic grace. Like a sharp slap about the chops, side three finds Manga spitting out a monolithic grime performance over "Function", while Daddy Freddy is on side four with a perfectly devilish turn on "Blaow".

Review: Indigo Movement's Athens/London connection goes from strength to strength. Now two years deep into the dance, they're celebrating with this immaculate collection of exclusives from their talented family. Label co-owner Bluez ensures their statement of intent is felt from the off with "Freedom". A surging sense of treacle-bass sludges out of the system over dramatic drums, it sets the tone for the alluring narrative that follows. Along the way expect to be gut-punched with carnal tribalism on Imanzi "Samburu Chant", expect to be chest-pressed by sub pressure on the authentic dub-style "Life" from Jeph1 and expect to be spun-out by the paranoia-inducing twists and textures of Fred Hassel's grimy "Callisto". An exceptional volume that represents the label at its highest level yet, Indigo Movement mean business - and they're here to stay.

Played by: TMSV, FatKidOnFire
Review: Following some legendary appearances on Lion Charge, Madd returns to the darker side with three killer peaktimers on his own Roots & Future imprint."I-N-I" is a Truth-style pummeller with overwhelming subs, rolling drums and big bass gurgles on the eights. "Burnin Dance" fires up with a great vocal sample and echoes of melodica before dropping into some serious low-end darkness. "Gunshot" follows a similar suit; plunging sub drops and pristine drums lay down a syncopated jam that can't help but make you move. Dubbed out danger, this is Madd at his most dancefloor-focused.

Chain Reaction - (5:36) 140 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.49
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.

Syncopator - (6:38) 62 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Since debuting on Tempa last year with Nomine's Sound, the producer has consistently impressed with his blend of classic dubstep sonics melded with subtle Eastern influences. Nomine's Chant sees the producer continue to develop this style in a more explicit way, with the title track combining bold Oriental vocals and plucked strings with the kind of subtle atmosphere you'd find on a Shackleton production. "Ninjah" is a much more confrontational track, pulling away the serenity of the title track and leaving only bold subs and murky vocals. "Syncopator" is something totally unexpected, bringing things down to 125BPM and creating something with nods to classic UK funky and bleep techno, in a manner not dissimilar to the recent productions of Beneath.

from $1.49
Review: Drum & bass heads and French junglists will be more than familiar with deep bass duo Kantyze. With previous on the forward-thinking likes of IM:LTD and Suspect Device, their sonic signature has always been one that's lent itself to the odd tempo or groove fluctuation. Here they prove as much with their FKOF debut. Four tracks of dynamic dark design, they've taken the best elements of drum & bass (drama, pace, unpredictability) and applied them to a deeper framework. "Chokey" is a sea of enveloping synth washes and mournful strings, "Bring The Core" is a loopy lesson in techno-minded minimalism and "Digital Reality" is a carnal call to action, all rapid and dramatic. Finally we hit "Ruff". With classic time-stretched jungle vocals and snares, soaring atmospheric textures and deep space sensations, it belies its name with equal measures of smooth. Beautiful.

Their latest missive, Under Pressure, should only further their reputation in the world of bass, with three tracks of doom laden dubstep with icy techno ("Under Pressure"), ghetto ("Spirit") and spacey soul ("Abyss") overtones.

Chasing The Dream (feat Fused Forces) - (4:48) 140 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Having appeared on Tsunami, Mindstep, Subway, Bassclash, Rottun and a whole more labels, German dankmeister Herr Boogie now gets ugly on Lutetia Dubz... "Invasion" is all about the subs that hum a heavy melody beneath stately gurgles and swaggering halfsteps. "Seen" switches the vibe for something altogether more punishing and rhythmic as kicks hammer the main message home in the steppiest way possible. "Chasing The Dream" ends on a trippy note as Boogie and Fused Forces deftly tinker with a tripletty swing, gradually delivering an array of far-away, star-gazing elements. Cold but not icy, deep but directed. This is one of Mr Boogie's finest releases to date.

from $1.49
Review: Back in 2010, Peverelist's Punch Drunk label released the Worth The Weight compilation, a collection of hard to find classics from Bristol's dubstep scene. In the years that have passed, dubstep has mutated, and so has Punch Drunk, with the classic dubstep sound giving way to something equally as likely to feature elements of house, techno and experimental music. It's this direction explored in the Worth The Weight Vol. 2: From The Edge, a 12-track compilation featuring tracks from the city and beyond. While Hodge and Tessela represent swung house and techno hybrids, Bass Clef and Ekoplekz are on hand to provide some strange analogue deviations, while Kahn and Zhou represent the city's Young Echo collective. With Pev himself, Andy Mac and Kowton delivering a remix of the classic "Roll With The Punches", this is an essential compilation for anyone with even a passing interest in the past few years of bass-centric UK music.

Review: Manchester-based producer Biome has been cultivating his own distinct brand of pummelling, stripped-back minimalist dubstep for over six years now, gaining plaudits and accolades for his output on labels such as Osiris, Black Box and Macabre Unit. The Cromos EP represents Biome's label debut for the mighty Tempa and brandishes a triptet of tracks that really showcase the full range of the producer's sound. Final track "Delta" is an undoubted highlight, a real vicious exercise in achieving the maximum pressure from the minimum of elements with little more than hard, brusque and broken rhythms and deadly bass utilised.

Review: While Hotflush is now a label known for its position at the forefront of cutting-edge club techno, it has gone through many different stages of evolution to arrive at its current sound. Scuba Presents Hotflush is a new series of compilations curated by the label boss attempting to trace the label's rich history, which goes all the way back to 2003 when the dubstep sound was just starting to explode. This first compilation - titled The Formation Years - looks at the years between 2003 and 2006, when Scuba regularly attended the seminal FWD>> night and began to release music from himself and some of the producers he met there, some of which is collected here. Those who first came into contact with Hotflush via its recent techno releases may be surprised at the intense bass pressure of tracks like Distance's "Nomad" and Toasty's "Like Sun", but the bright melodies of Scuba's "Harpoon" and the breakbeat garage of Slaughter Mob's "L'Amour" show that even at the beginning, Hotflush was never just been a straightforward dubstep label. Whether you're familiar with Hotflush or not, this compilation is an essential lesson in dubstep history.

Review: Run by Cessman, Dubliminal is a label "representing a multi-cultural melting pot of futuristic roots music". Here, for his imprint's 11th release, he steps up to deliver Research And Development, a four-track exploration of the outer limits of bass. "King Of My Mind" sees a seriously cool cowbell assault some stop-start beats, while "Babylon Must Fall" sees him explore his garage and jazz days but with a modern freneticism, "Fundamentals" betrays some house and even D&B influences on this forward-thinking floorfiller and "Inner City Vibes" balances the fine line between cool jazz sax and Guru Josh with great gusto.

Review: Teasing us ahead of the release of his label's inaugural compilation, J Kenzo lays down a supreme slice of contemporary bass with Collinjah. The beats ooze Kenzo's demonstrative dark, restrained drama - all weighted but never too OTT - but it's Collinjah who really gives the track the edge. Clearly refining his lyrical flow and penchant for Newham General-style melody subversion, bars like these will worm their way into your head for days after the dance. Bring on the full Artikal.

Review: Noir by name, noir by nature, Montana-based Piecemeal has created a crystalline body of bass music work. "The Price Of Victory" is a barbed beatless piece of ominous ambience that will work perfectly as an agenda-setting intro for any mix. The title track itself takes us into 130 territories on a cleverly incomplete two-step riddim. "To Be Honest" delves deeper into cross-pollination as Piecemeal helps us imagine what Leftfield would sound like if they started now thanks to a sinewy dynamic and some majestic vocal sample manipulation. "Dead Eyes" finishes this set with darkest message yet as Jordan Perkic tips his hat to the likes of Cobain and Gahan with immersive and meditative results.

Review: We're not sure what New Zealand duo Perverse has been eating for breakfast, but their latest material is definitely harder than the original dungeon-bound sonics they first made a name for themselves with. With nuances of Thelem and Killawatt - while sounding wholly their own - there's a distinct loopy, almost techno-like vibe to each of these three cuts... "Champion Dub" is authentic roots material, all spacey and loaded with crystalline drum dynamics, "Invasion", meanwhile is an ugly, bass-busted peaktime jam that's coded with serious funk attitude while "Methot VI" teases with fractured stabs and a fantastically processed vocal loop. Trippy and tasty, don't sleep on this one!

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: Subscape, AKA producer Anthony Peters, has been releasing material on bass music specialists Dub Police since 2008. Here he shifts focus a little with "I Would Have Loved You". In its original form, the track melds UK funky tendencies and dubstep-influenced house rhythms with twinkling progressive house electronics, widescreen chords and cut-up autotune vocals. AWE delivers the most striking remix, an off-kilter, out-there dubstep interpretation seemingly influenced by glitch-hop and IDM. There's also a more straightforward deep UK funky take from Atlantic Parade which makes great use of the original's sweet strings. Finally, bonus cut "Angels" is a deliciously wide-eyed chunk of ultra-deep dubstep blessed with shimmering melodies and hazy, Jonny Nash style guitars.

Review: Already a tried and tested tear-up on vinyl, Chestplate finally code up Leon's "Deadlock" EP for the digital heads. Complete with a stark political message, "Deadlock" swaggers with an anchor-like kick swing, pad textures that breathe like an asthmatic robot and midrange bass snorts that scuff up and down the arrangement. "Persepolisia" takes us on a darker trip where a series of basses rev up alongside each other in pole position, all vying for your murkiest attention. Finally the Kryptic Minds cohort climaxes with "Lelyss". Operating around the 90BPM half tempo axis, there's a crisp, snake-like mentality to the synth bass that bounces like a tightly coiled spring amid a spellbinding brew of airy pads. Heady.

Review: Vaun's emotional, highly musical blend of bass music reaches a new high as he delivers an epic six-track opus on Mindstep. Coming on strong like fellow Bristolian countryman Phaeleh, he treads a fine line between dancefloor weight and life soundtracking future-minded soul. Highlights include the dreamy, star-gazing almost Massive Attack-like "Sidelines" with Sarah Zed, the smoky Soulectionesque spoken word pressure of "Knowledge" and the wondrous beatless beauty of "One Touch". Vaun's skills and creativity are becoming more and more apparent by the release. Highly recommended.
