Review: A feisty bass fiver right here, courtesy of German one-man-dub-band Ire Worryah. We kick off with a vibrant, carnival-ready sing-along anthem that rolls with generous amounts of funk. As the EP progresses we're taken deeper and deeper into Irie's bassbin with both "Dull Ass Cheek" and "Bass Trap Monster" leaning heavily towards the classic form of dynamic dub science. "Breathing Dub" elevates the groove with a major-key skank and shimmering keys and "Foundation" follows suit with another bounce-skank, but be careful... this one flips into a Rusko-inspired rabble rouser mid groove for added naughtiness.

Review: With the likes of Carl Cox and Fatboy Slim (who incidentally named him his producer of the year) jumping straight on everything he does, UK star Sonny Wharton is at the top of his game. This latest on Skint is testament to that fact, this is pure party music that brings an infectious feel-good vibe and boost of energy to any set of any style, no matter what time of night. With funky percussion, a old skool rave piano, and the vocal "Remember back in the day when it was acetate, Technic1210s, MkII's & Dubplates". That's a naughty little recipe guaranteed to do the damage. For the bass heads, there's a seriously heavy remix from Mind Vortex!

Review: A huge release, with some equally huge remixes, as breaks kings Stanton Warriors wrap Ruby Goe's vocals around a swathe of bassy licks and gnarled leads on "Shoot Me Down". Herve weighs in heavy with a classy mix of Korg M1 organ leads and sampled drums giving it a nice mix of early-'90s rave/house and modern sonics, while Steep's Moombahton mix slows things right down and adds some glorious bleep leads. Sigma's mix however is clearly going to be the one that gets caned by DJs - a furious dubstepper with an enormous, double-time build that simply defies description! Huge stuff indeed.

Review: A couple of cute jungle cuts from The Wildlife Collective (alias of Ed Solo and Deekline) on suitably delectable imprint, Jungle Cakes. A warm, woozy vocal led narrative in lead track "I Need A Dollar" tells a tale like a modern day reggae top line. Beautiful booming bass adds solid foundations from below whilst tooting trumpets and pattering breaks shimmy along nicely above. On the flip, "Bad Bwoy" is another tribute to Jamaican sound culture, referencing Remarc's early 90s jungle interpretation "Bad Bwoys" along the way. There's a hint of Serum & Bladerunner in there, with classic sounds pared with modern production techniques and polished drums. Absolutely brilliant.
