Review: You can always rely on Smokin Sessions to find the perfect balance between deep, soulful and funky. Each release oozes a sultry nonchalance but not one of them has ever erred on the dull side. N Dread's trio of tracks is no exception. In fact it's even more enticing as it comes complete with a beautiful subby D&B roller ("Just Runnin'"). Elsewhere you'll find slinky, steppy dub fun on "Oceans Eleven" and pristine euphoric two-step on "Wonderful". What a session!

Review: Taking it back to the roots, with the heavy dubbed out flavours that characterize the genre way back when in the early noughties, old Croydon compadres N-Type and Cyrus team up for a 12" that just oozes bass weight. In "Dark Frequency" they employ a menacing echoing vocal sample, which serves to emphasize the inky black b-line and lurching rhythms and pummelling sub bass. In "Conscious", things are taken down a more pared down route, with psychological utterances, tribal drums and a grizzled moving b-line, almost reminiscent of early Skream in fact. One for fans of Youngsta, Loefah and Hatcha.

Review: Label boss and dubstep don N Type steps up with partner in crime Surge for the next release on his own label, Wheel & Deal. Bass heads, you're in for a treat, as this EP unfolds we are exposed to such glorious, sonorous offerings as opener "September Sun" with a beautiful, impassioned vocal courtesy of Pyxis. Following this up is synth-soaring "Mega-Tron" with its grizzled, wobbly beats and scintillating melodies, as well as "Triangles" which goes darker and deeper, with dubbed out sounds, ominous movie samples and smashing snares. Finishing up with a "Zombie Apocalypse", this piece marks the end of a top-notch release.

Review: The latest release from Marco Del Horno's Bullet Train comes courtesy of London duo N55, aka producer Luke Oldham and Marco Giuliani (Last Japan). "My High" is a knockout double hitter comprising a warbly 'you are my high' vocal sample and tongue twisting rap from Rtkal. "Eclipse" is utterly different, being blissed out digital Balearica with hip-hop beats, "Lego" is quirky RnB and finally "Who Knew" is so well polished, it could almost be US top ten material.

Review: Wonderfully deep vibes abound on this young Cornish producer's Prospekt debut. There's a heavy emphasis on the dark garage flavours throughout as we're guided through the mournful pads and wistful melodic structures. "Music Work You" whistles on a subdued two-step with an underplayed euphoria, "They Heard I Was Good" carries some really interesting vocal harmony processing over a more solid club beat while "Make It Through" builds and builds with beef beats and a deft vocal loop. Another fine release from Prospekt.
