Review: In the wake of key dispatches on the likes of Liondub, Subway, G13, Digital Terror and High R8, Sub Killaz continue their murderous mission this year with more titanium tear-out gold and cheeky homages to hip-hop's golden era. Just when you've worked out "Shock Out" along flies in a flamenco from nowhere. Elsewhere "Catch My Drift" punches with a unique sense of off-beat funk with Migos muscle and "Dangerous" goes for the drama vibe with its sweeping staccato riff. Finally "Rap Music" shuts us down with restrained stepper where a clipped bass tone grunts a sharp riff that's mirrored by the overweight subs. Get connected.

Review: Raising tension and attention with every release right now, Natty Dub return with yet another BS-free collection from some of the underground's most respected individuals. T>I loosens the bass strings for his slinked out dark-jazz stepper "Regulate", Hoogs puts all the aces in their places with a precision space-reggae gully jam "R Ting", Coda goes all bubble-bass a la mid 90s V on "Back It Up" and Jaxx & Dub General roll out with pure grumble groove and classic jump up spoken samples. Finally Flat T brings business to a close with a deal-breaking late 90s Bristol-flavoured cut where the spooked-out bass has a life of its own. Immense.

Played by: DJ Rachael EC
Review: Non-stop manoeuvres: Turno's gripping the game by cohones this year. Flexing full axis, you never know what to expect, which makes every release even more of an exciting prospect. Fresh from laying down the law with Majistrate on Playaz, here he returns to Sweet Tooth with two left-of-centre jump up cuts: "Get Back" gets its funk on with a croaky bass and alien lasers while "Cattivo" goes for a deeper bass riff that doesn't sound a million miles away from early Clipz. Definitely no bad thing.

In Too Deep - (6:05) 172 BPM
from $1.90
Played by: DJ Rachael EC, RMS, Dj Dazee
Review: Powerhouse collabo business: Longstanding craftsman Serum joins forces with fast-rising duo T & Oberon for two understated space-travel rollers that shake and shudder with the perfect balance of shades and energy. "Take My Breath Away" is all about the star-gazing; the pads, vocals and extra-sweeping chords live up to the title while a depth plunge bassline ensures maximal weight and punch. "In Too Deep", meanwhile, nods its cap to classic house and tech foundations with a rising riff that wouldn't go amiss in a Stephan Bodzin set, neatly softened by a soulful vocal snippet. Fresh material.

Review: Jungle's favourite shagoholic Nymfo steps up to Total Science's CIA for the first time in several years and he's making up for lost time: four tracks of forthright D&B, each one catered for a different chapter of the night. "Something Tells Me" eases us in with soulful prowess as Riya coats the liquid riddim with honey, "Barfly" is much more of a bar fight with its tribal-like vocal sample switches, "Stop Motion" is late night Renegade around 2001 with its dense drum work and unforgiving pads while "Bread & Butter" closes the show on a next-century funk tip. Beautiful.

Review: Six months deep and already onto his third 1985 release, Perez takes us back to his roots with a sublime selection of subtle work-outs; "The Raven" persists with a rattling percussive riff and droning bassline, "Drifting" swishes and sways with a slinky two-step, yearning atmospheres and lingering keys while "Inside Your Love" is a pneumatic funk trip into two-step soul. Finally "Numbers" turns the lights down with purring, naked soul. Beautiful.

Review: Steve Bcee recently blew people away with his impressive third full length LP, Come And Join Us. Such was the response that he's now releasing a companion record called "Thanke For Joining Us". The release sees the original LP reworked by a host of top names. Highlights include the soulful, intelligent melodies and crisp beats of SPY collab, "Is Anybody Out There?(The Vanguard Project mix)", the glistening broken hip-hop beats of "Delirious (Kiyan Law mix)", the jazzy, late night chill vibes of "Sun Goes Down (Pola and Bryson mix)" and the speedy, orchestrated DnB anthem "Cut Me Loose(Muffler mix)".

Review: From Prolix to Technimatic, Total Science to Was A Be by way of Icicle, Joe Ford, Fourward, Spectrasoul, Phace, Ed.It and many more, Friction's label digs deep from the genre's most innovative corners and eras. As we prepare to close off 2016, they've taken a detailed look back over the last 18 months of crucial output to not just represent where the label is at, but the genre itself. An ideal opportunity to fill any holes in your collection cuts such as Fourward & Linguistics demonic stomper "Storm", Was A Be's rudeboy-slewing halftime damager "Blind" or Break's sparkling "Emerald" and complete with a journeyman mix of the tracks themselves, this rounds up yet another serious year at the very forefront of drum & bass.

from $1.90
Played by: Demandrecords, Hex
Review: Barely 18 months have passed since his solo debut Seeing Sounds and DLR returns with another deep detail exercise. Fired by the current political climate, the Bristol-based artist breaks down the echo chamber with killer warm, grainy and fat productions. Whether it's the understated loose funk of "Trip Up", the pressure-cooked, sub-baked rave textures of "Wonder What It Feels Like" or the dark alley paranoia of "Unusual Behaviour" that gets you woke then the Photekian spaciousness and dubby wonder of "Wasting Time" and the Badco style drone of "Time Is Everything" will certainly send you into a post-truth punch-up. Sweet dreams are made of this.

Review: Ah Break... Easily one of the most universally respected men in drum & bass. Never playing to trend, not even partaking in the mixdown war, always with the most unique drum sounds, he does his own thing and we love him for it. We love his label too. More often than not a vehicle for his own output, here he celebrates Symmetry in fitting style - with his own tracks and collaborations. It's an all star cast with Total Science bullying up a disgusting stepper ("Betamax") and Spectrasoul co-handling a gully halftime jammer. Elsewhere highlights hit from every corner but only a joker wouldn't investigate his update on the Fats-fronted classic "Free Your Mind", the grizzling "Who Got Da Funk" or the infectious shaker-flaring dub cut "Left Behind". Here's to another 10 years.

Review: What a year it's been for Goldie's partner in crime, Calypso Muzak and Co-Lab label bossman and hugely diverse and open minded producer Heist. Following a whole host of EPs on labels from Headz to Horizons he returns with another blunderbuss collection; "Broken Down" is a spiky bag of angry wasps, "Against The Grain" tips a nod to Clipz circa 2003, "Prosthetic Legs" pays homage to superhumans of the world with the wildest pirate triplet you'll hear this month while "Through The Gate" is all about the sopping wet alien emissions. No one is doing like Heist right now.

Review: More often spotted cooking up sickness stews with McLeod, Villem tag teams with Belgian deepsmith Phase. The result is every bit as spotless, crisp and alluring as you want it to be. Soulful but barbed with the right balance of darkness, each cut trembles but punches: Steo adds emotional sparkles to "Thru My Soul", "The Traveller" soothes with K&D era pads before dropping into a Break-style elastic bass groove while "Kaikol" plays the cosmic card with its mystic instruments and drawn out notes. Of course McLeod shows his face too. And he does so on the beautiful "Reap What You Sow" where absolute bliss drops into total jungle dungeonism.

Review: Perhaps of the most consistent and influential chapters of Bryan Gee and Jumping Jack Frost's D&B dynasty, Philly Blunt has been responsible for some of the most serious jungle benchmarks in its 22 year history. Here we find its repertoire in the trusted hands of Serum as he updates, edits and contextualises the label's history, present and future. From the many Roni-sized Firefox pieces such as the stark warbles of "True Grit" and Krusty-flavoured Glamour Gold jams such as "You Can Run" to more contemporary pieces like Serum & Voltage's mischievous jump-up funk "Save This World" and Bladerunner's immense update on Dillinja's "I Selassie I". To the point.

Review: Ulterior Motive make tracks that are built to last so it makes sense that the parts lend themselves to equally solid remixes. Every single version is a blinder here; Break takes "keep it Moving" to leaner, funkier pastures, Icicle technofies "Chapter" with steppy, halftime hurtism while Lenzman highlights the already soulful "Stay" with his own cosmic touch. Elsewhere Xtrah turns "Longshot" inside out (while paying respect to its instantly distinctive riff) Mark System turns in a seriously unique, clipped-bass twist on "Muted" and the guys themselves demolish "Inta-National" and rebuild it with nothing but melted gully. Masterful.

Review: "The Rumble" saw a return to form from garage legend MJ Cole, alongside AJ Tracey, but the 892 label have decided that it wasn't enough; the show must go on, and there must be something extra special to sweeten the deal even more. Luckily, these guys think on their feet and have recruited the very best across the bass game; first up, Sheffield bass pioneer Toddla T twists the tune up with a selection of jungle breaks and ominous grime sonics - it's second nature to this dude - and this is followed by an absolute jump-up frenzy from the legendary DJ Hype and newcomer Annix, a high-speed d&b stepper for the next decade. Last but certainly not least, Scarface heads back to the garage rave by offering something of stop-start, shuffle-house monster, the sort of tune that could only be conceived in the UK.

Review: Drum&Bass Arena: The longest-standing, and one of the most respected, platforms for all things jungle D&B celebrates an impressive 20 years in the game with this ridiculously hefty document that pays respect to the genre's every twist and turn. From scene-shattering megahits ("Tarantula", "Feel The Love", "Rock It", "Afterglow") to unarguable historical underground scene-smashing megabangers ("Machete", "Aztec", "Nasty Ways", "The View", "Champion Sound", "Turbulence", "Up All Night", "Deadline", Ram Trilogy's remix of "Pacman") by way of tracks that may have slipped under the radar ("Defcom 69", "What's Wrong", "Song For Lovers") the whole album is loaded to the lips with some of the most important records the genre's enjoyed in the last 20 years. Time to get nostalgic, time to fill those holes in your collection, time to educate your dancefloor. Here's to another 20 years!

Review: Mature, authentic and gullier than your nan swearing at a seagull; Deep In The Jungle ante up once again with a winter-smashing six-piece. As the title suggests, battles are the focus point here with seven of the label's best mates licking up their sharpest shots. Cautious and Epicentre get radical with the ragga element, DJ Hybrid plays the atmos card with factor 10 rushes while "Playing Games" is total diva, drums and pianos. Shutting down this sweet serenade of sickness are Bassflex and Galvatron, both cooking up their most fractured, doctor-dented amen edit frenzies. Classically trained with eyes on the future, Deep In The Jungle are killing it right now.

Played by: DJ Rachael EC, Dj Dazee
Review: Maji and Franko - end days were already written when they first agreed to collaborating. No planet can handle such heavyweight tagmanship. The armageddon vibes are felt through every low-end, densely pressured sub rumbles on "Worlds End" before we're pushed at 170mph into a savage laser licking triplet groove. "Mutton" does well to rebuild civilisation. Rather than lash straight out with more toxic riffs it develops a deeper backdrop before unfolding a spookier range of bass textures. Insane levels of power throughout, the message is clear: An ending is just a start that hasn't looped yet.

Review: According to dictionaries to envenom someone is to bite them or infect them with a poison. According to junglists, meanwhile, to Envenom someone is to hit them hard with the gulliest possible jump-up cuts and not stop until they've kicked two massive dents in the floor. Following high profile releases on the likes of Calypso and Multi Function this year we find him smashing down the doors of Smokin Riddims with two more jugular-aimed riff-heavy cuts. "On My Way" balances a sci-fi atmosphere with grunted staccato bass hits while "Run" thrusts with a riff that can cut through solid concrete. Infectious.

Review: Serum on 31... You already know this will hurt you without even pressing play, don't you? For formality's sake, here's the 411: "Species" is a real deep swing grumbler underpinned with a brilliantly tuned moaning bassline while its VIP provides a more fluctuating take on the bass for more of an aggy twist. "Redeemer" tips a wry nod at "Shadow Boxing" with its endless sheet-like bass panelling everything in its wake and "Blood Red" is gulliness incarnate. Heads business, this.

Review: What an exciting few years it's been for the Artikal bossman Kenzo. Playfully switching between 140, 160 and 170, dub, jungle and D&B, he's in his element right now and packing some seriously darked out heat. Back on ThirtyOne he's hurling more heaviness our way. "Sykura" is a crisp steppy track not dissimilar to early Subtitles and TeeBee material while "Assemble" kicks with more of a bouncy two-step spring. Think Jonny L and you're on the right track. That's the level we're talking here.

Review: Half man, half machine (hence the name), Hybrid has been unstoppable this year. Tune after tune after tune for days and they've all been precision delivered with the dancefloor and heads in mind. Here we find him on mean debut label EP flex for Natty Congo and nothing is left to chance as all vibes are licked thoroughly; "Occupational Hazard" kicks with real classical Moving Fusion style late 90s power and some brilliantly tripped out cascading moans, "Lunar" kicks with a Rockwellian ghettotech pace while "Bad Man Culture" rolls with a mild jumpy wobble reminiscent of foundation Bristol. "Turn It Around" brings home the funk bacon with a vibe that's not dissimilar to Break. Seriously.

Review: Rumble is the new team of Marcus Visionary and Liondub. Their plan is to showcase vocalists from Jamaica, New York and the UK and to fuse the sounds of dancehall, hip-hop and DnB. Siren is their first offering and they've started with a banger - roping in the legendary soundclash MC Suku (aka Ward 21 of Kingston, Jamaica). The original of "Siren" is a buzzy, high-energy electronic skank that's guaranteed to get the place totally lit. Elsewhere the club mix gets looser with dem riddims, the DnB mix is what it says on the tin, but the dancehall version is totally pure joy.

Review: You know the drill; it's another monumental compilation from London's 20/20 Recordings, the fresh-faced dubstep label, which can mean only quality and quantity above all else. There is plenty for any sort of bass fan to sink their teeth into right here, starting from the murky waters of Deft's future-dub, though to Belatron's icy grime-like riddims, and Caution's noxious hybrid beats. All in all, there's no one genre here, just pure vibes, and a great deal of low frequencies form the deepest, darkest corners of the UK's production scene.

Review: It's kinda rare to see an artist delivering a full drum and bass album these days, but that's just how Nu Elementz like to vibe. Prophecy is a complete master blaster of an LP, with thirteen tracks of wild and diverse jump-up steppers charged and motored by devious swarms of mutant bass, reminding us of the that DJ Hazard school of thought that made the Playaz label what it is today. Tunes like "Speed Of Sound", "Evolution", and "Pablo Escobar" are the sort of gear you can break out if you're need of something nasty, something to bump sideways to amid a sea of hungry ravers. There are deeper moments, too, such as "Respect" or "Never Forget" featuring longtime drum and bass don Majistrate. No funny business, just pure rave vibes.

Review: Slow and steady: LSB has been known to heads for years now but he's never hurried himself, he's never carved out identikit formulas for the sake of fans, he's never played the predictable games. In true Soul:r style (a label he's now fully signed with) he's focused on ensuring he only releases his very best material since day one. Naturally his album is no different; the gentle fades of "Lydian", the raw emotion of "Circle", the outright epicity of the 8-min "Blinding", the sad farewells of "Missing You"... Every second of the album has been considered and delivered with real thought and detail. Contented? You will be.

Review: The title says it all: "Hard Bop" is as succinct as it sounds. A "Warhead" style Q&A with a very lean rhythm and subs complexion, a whole universe of funk can be found in the devilishly simple groove. "Sight N Soundz" adopts a similar minimal MO with a very precise, classical late 90s style bass riff that just nags and nags until you submit. Both cuts laced with detailed drum work that never sits still, Ego Trippin is, once again, bang on the dollar with these.

Deeper again we hit mysterious newcomer Drop Off with a powerful riff-primed cut that's reminiscent of a young Tyke while veterans Ego Trippin' return with a beautifully bouncy Bingo style workout "Barely Breathing". All quarter covered and plenty more.

"Silent Killer" has a Rottweiler bassline that barks with beautiful aggression, "Let Off" is all subs and spaciousness and "Goblin" rolls out with one of those mischievous basslines that's guaranteed to induce smirks and sultry dance moves. Elsewhere expect to have your face-melted by the multi-layered basses on "Barrel Smoke" and prepare for a steppy Ganja Kru style jazzy/bassline finale. Pure D&B electricity - Voltage can do no wrong this decade.

Introduced by Goldie on Friction's Radio 1 show over a year ago, the wait for this echoes of the dubplate culture that's clearly inspired the project: icy Bluenote atmospherics, big wavy bass textures, swaggering trooper drums are all keynotes as we jostle among the re-futurised 92 tones on "Skin Dem", swathe through the cosmic paranoid fumes of "Early Evolution", skip amid the gliding synths on "2 On Each Side" and stumble blindly through the murky drums and rusty fog of the brilliantly titled Om Unit collabo "Expliciticity". Open your mind.

Review: Titles can be misleading... If you think Macky Gee is about to get all deep and poignant with "Calm Before The Storm" think again: everything about this peaktime fire cut is loaded with energy, funk and dynamic ruthlessness. Drop this and we guarantee everyone will stop in their tracks. Elsewhere "Pick 'N' Mix" cuts through the noise with a caustically pinched riff, "Dat Ass" spits with a rampant, ruffled edge that drops into the sexiest chords imaginable on the breakdown while "Moomba Thong" gets all trippy with its instrumentation before hurtling into an anti-drop style heavily swung groove. No calm whatsoever - this whole release is storming.

Review: Three years have passed since Horizon last rallied up the troops and embarked on a dead-night brain-burgling Dreamthief parade. As always it's an all-star cast with the likes of Amoss, Break, Naibu, Digital, Mikal, Mako, Need For Mirrors and many more cooking up some of their starkest, uncompromised and innovative cuts: the tight conga hypnosis of Breaks "Headway", the turbo piano rolls of Invaderz "Dukes Drift", the sublime cinematic jazz soul of Hydro & War's "Jam", the cascading, twinkling textures of Naibu's "Time Out", the neck-snap amen mechanica of Digital's "Spark Cut"... If this is the soundtrack to our innermost stories being syphoned from our heads at our most vulnerable sleeping states then sign us up and take the lot. Sweet dreams of thieved of this.

Caterpillar (instrumental) - (5:42) 174 BPM
from $1.90
Review: Two gun fingers in the air push your lighters up: BSE and SOM are back... And they're rolling even deeper with the mighty Virus Syndicate. With its slow-burning halftime intro giving all the space the Virus crew need to wreak lyrical havoc, we're then booted into one of the most vicious electrified riffs the Dutch/New Zealand partnership have ever created. The only way "Caterpillar" could be filthier is if it was human. "Exclusive" brings up the rear with a slightly subtler build. All scratchy and prang, it's not long before full fast-lane oblivion kicks in both mentally and physically. Mayhem.

Review: Last spotted on Clawhammer's Jukebox album late last year, Audit returns the Droitwich HQ and this time he's offering a full-scale assessment of everything that's great about jungle. "Move On It" celebrates the 31-style deep rollers where the percussive break twists inside out of bellowing subs, "Power Hour" is a live drum frenzy that tips a nod to the Paradox's of the world before dropping into an Enei-style machine-funk groove while "Slopper" drones with such restrained, cold menace it could have seeped out of Need For Mirrors' studio. Finally "Clash" investigates the dub side of the dance with processed skanks and a slick steppy drop. Each track flexing with distinction, the title Seismic Activity really does sum it up.

Review: With his debut releases on Serial Killaz and Kartoonz acting as the countdown, Leaf literally takes off on "Space Shuttle". Firing with pure dark matter but never over-burning, it pulls away from gravity with broadsword production and the right amount of thrust. "Bubble Wrap" leaves us floating in the ether with some deft sample work and outer-planetary atmospheres while "Killer" boots us back to reality with a vicious bump; grizzly, raw and honest, it somehow tips nods at both Full Cycle and Hardware with its attitude, groove and aesthetic. Happy landing.

Simskai - "Game Over" - (4:23) 175 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.90
Review: Belgium b2b Britain: Simskai calls up Croydon up-and-comers Delta & Fluxy for a sense-shattering tear-up with bass tones that sound like a space-ship being folded inside out. Metallic, sharp yet out-of-this-world, this blows minds on every outing. Simskai goes solo for the second part as "Gave Over" goes all-out grunt with alien sound bass punctuation and just the right amount of eerie strings in the background.

Review: Three EPs in just over half a year: Villem and Bcee have peppered 2016 with their Vanguard creations. Restrained, soulful and ageless, every cut has been of note and this quartet is no exception. "FLLN 4 U" is all about the roomy, cloud-jumping big breeze vibes, "Milestone" flexes on a star-bound gospel level, "More Jungle" eases and pleases with lush dubby horn washes and less-is-more vocal touches. Finally "From Inside" we're taken back on the cosmic, lean space soul feels. Precision classy / heavy ratio business right here.

Played by: DJ Rachael EC
Review: With previous collaborations punching massive holes through the walls at the HQ of Bryan Gee's Chronic and Liquid V, US D&B soldiers Dave Owen and Jaybee now set their sights on Bristol: home of junglist daddy Randall. Long time supporter of US D&B talent, Randall's roped the two in for a heavyweight collection: "Blow" is an all-out gully roller that seems tailor made for Mac II, "Streets Is Dirty" is all about the rattling snare and Krust-style twostep while "You Want None" is a straight-up grade-A 3am dark-out that shudders and shakes with the same grunting restraint as Jaybee's solo groaner "Who Want Some". It's a rhetorical question - we all want some.
