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.

Levitan's Calling - (5:27) 140 BPM
from $2.16
Review: New Zealand warrior Dar Kist makes his Sure State debut with two grizzly, growling slabs of deep dark mechanical funk: "Don't Mention It" rides hard on a steppy kick arrangement as a detuned, distorted melody fights through the sonic fog to make itself heard. "Levitan's Calling" is just a tad more traditional with the seemingly endless array of bass textures making the main melodic presence over a swaggering halftime arrangement. Each bass fine-tuned with Dar Kist's dagger-like dynamics, dancefloor reactions to this will be nothing short of exultant.

Review: Bay Area bassmith Dom Mali makes his Tuba debut with a quadrant of sublime steppers. "Neo Dub" has a simple but deadly allure as its elastic sub is stretched into a pulsing groove that builds on every twist and turn. "Secrets" is the early bird soundtrack, all crisp, dewy and full of hope while the oceanic ripples of "Fisherman's Dub" sees us reeling out for a trout but catching a barracuda. Finally we lean back and chill with "Benzo", all flutes, tubular subs and lazy beats, it's an instant soul soother.

Review: Undisputed godfathers of UK dubstep Horsepower Productions are back with another full length; their first in 12 years since 2004's To The Rescue LP. As Tempa themselves put it succinctly: "Crooks, Crime & Corruption" draws from numerous facets of the UK underground and further afield in order to take you on a compelling, wholly immersive journey. Highlights include "Justify" featuring Harry Keyworth which sounds like Jah Wobble versus Ry Cooder, the deep spiritual house of "Bak 2 NY" or "Kurisoity 6" and the business as usual, street level bass therapy as heard on the raw "Change" or the pure fire junglist anthem "Criminally Insane".

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.

The Tempest - (6:50) 106 BPM
from $2.16
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!

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".
