Review: One of this year's top unsung tracks, "Brand New Style" brings a slick Baltic beat to V Records. Featuring the always fantastic cohabitation of Serum and Bladerunner alongside Command Strange and the unmistakeable vocals of MC Fats, there are so many ways this release hits the right spot that we can't possibly name them all. "Inner Soul" offers some old school sounds in with the fresh production and crisp, clean jazzy melodies that shows a brighter, softer side to the collaboration. Still hard-hitting with those IDM-style breaks popping through, that big bass at 2'11" should have the entire world out on the dancefloor. Perfectly matching light and dark this release deserves more coverage. Get on it.

Review: Effortlessly combining dancehall vibes, the sound of dub culture, big, brash jungle riddims and spot on vocals from Mr Williamz, the jungle remix of Marcus Visionary's original call to arms is a big, bold statement of intent. Large and full of life, there's no doubt it'll be tearing up clubs up and down the country as we speak. Strip back those beats and you're left with his dub remix, bringing out more of the sizzling soundboy flavas that infectious dancehall wynd requires. Canadian DJ and producer Marcus Visionary pushes his junglist vibes wherever he goes. Make way for his sound.

Review: Hot on the heels of emotional "Something About You", Matt U goes back to badboy with a feisty fiver of sheer bass ugliness. "Frequency" is an obese, slippery slug of a tune, all sludgy and grubby. "Backwards" flips for an uptempo rave homage that incorporates some clever reverse techniques on the breakbeats. "Threshold" tackles from the off-side: the halfsteps stomp with attitude while the double time bassline bubbles uncontrollably. Hooking with Killawatt for the penultimate joint, the "The Strangers" is anchored by so much sub bass there's a warrant out for it. "Uncontrolled VIP" closes the show with a neat reboot of last year's dungeon smash with a neat new purr on the bottom end.

Review: mSdoS has been a member of the online liquid and D&B community for as long as anybody can remember, but with his latest batch of dazzlingly fresh tunes he might be set to break into the bigtime. Branching out from liquid to hard stepping dancefloor fillers, this EP covers the full spectrum of drum & bass, covering all the bases you'd expect with his own blend of soul and intelligent rhythms. There's even a taster of his junglist side in "Jungle Plants", swapping smooth rollers for blistering amens and atmospheric vocals. A man on the rise, catch him while he's underground because it won't be for long.

Review: Releasing on Focuz for some time now, UK-based Malaky has been bringing his own blend of harmonious liquid and breakbeat-inspired rhythms to the worldwide D&B scene. This two track EP explores his deeper side, starting with the lush textures and widescreen sound of "Vibrate", a true liquid stepper that should sit high on any D&B setlist. "Own World" features soulful vocals from Lyndsey Murray and launches straight into whimsical string sampling and hard stepping beats. Warm rolling bass smothers the low end in a deep, resonant glow, leaving a barely heard sax to echo into the sunset. A gorgeous way to finish your evening.

Review: Notoriously prolific and dangerously dark, Belgian production duo M Zine and Sceptics' reputation preceeds them on this, their latest offering on Leeds-based drum and bass outfitters Dispatch Recordings. Aside from obsessively scouring the horizon for the next big thing in all things deep, dark and 170+ bpm, this time around Dispatch look to not only the resonance and deep grooves of "Point Of No Return" but also recruit Detail and Matt Pulsar to add their twopenny's worth on "Reflexions" and "Chromicles" respectively. The result is a masterful collection of atmospheric, intelligent drum and bass that breaks the dark, minimal mould. But did you expect anything less?
