Review: If you judge a producer by their ability to successfully apply a winning formula to a variety of styles, Alix Perez is a master. While drum and bass remains his forte, there's enough on Chroma Chords, his second album, to suggest that he's growing as a producer. This EP discards with the synth-laden head nodders featured on the full album, though the four tracks here do still demonstrate the versatile nature of Chroma Chords. Thus the grimy hip hop of the Metropolis featuring "Blue Print" shares space with the soulful stepping action of "Playing Games" whilst the the excellent vintage Timbaaland does halfstep of "Shadows" (featuring breakout Eglo talent Strange U") joins up with the vicious "Burnout".

Review: Shogun Audio's Alix Perez is one of the scene's most interesting producers, providing a genuine buzz for each new track he puts out there. Featuring storming remixes from artists across the full spectrum of dance music, the hip hop inspired beats of "Annie's Song" is first given the jungle treatment from Hospital Records don S.P.Y before Shadow Child rips up the stylesheet and presses on with a full-on garage bouncer. Maddslinky, Zed Bias' UK funky alter-ego chops up the original to hit the dancefloor with a blast from the past and finally "We Could Have Been" rounds up the release with a trip down more familiar rolling Alix Perez territory. So many styles, so many talents, it's a must have yet again from one of D&B's big guns.

Review: Back in March, Alter Ego dropped the blistering "Dark Matter", a uniquely devastating piece of screwface D&B, and now it finds itself the subject of a similarly furious remix courtesy of Divine Elements. Playing up the subtle sci-fi atmospherics of the original, it works that sawtooth bassline into alternating moments of pneumatic drill-like madness and brief moments of halfstep calm.

Review: Renowned for their consistently dark, stark production power Amoss never cease to deliver. "Bumbaclart" pulverises from the off with its industrial strength kick drums and droning, warped riff. Rising with uncompromised menace, it's like an orchestra of steam-powered machines, slamming and drilling in perfect harmony. "Dilate" is a much more brooding affair. Lolloping on a slimy halfstep laced with a series of processed croaks and slurs, if you're looking to prang out your floor, this guarantees chaos.

Review: "Tangent" shows the duo at their most euphoric. Igniting with dreamlike instrumentation that wafts delicately in the mix, we're soon dropped into a slippery, steppy bass/kick combo that rumbles with heavy sub resonance. Remix-wise Geode flips the tempo for a 140 tribal dubstep rendition. With an array of tight edits, emphatic drums and synth flourishes, it loses none of the D&B original's power and charm.

Review: Furious percussion and smooth vocals pinpoints Andrezz's Brazilian roots while showcasing his talent for reaching out beyond his liquid funk dossier. Creating sounds from the full spectrum of commercial D&B, he channels rolling drum and bass gods Lenzman and S.P.Y in "Resistance", Nu:Tone and Logistics in "Senzala", DJ Marky and Doc Scott in "Like The Real Thing" and working alongside DJ Chap for "So Many Days", old school vibes are blended with cracking deep, bassy breakdowns that seriously flip this release into experimental territory. Get one for your crate and one for your morning commute.
