War Of The Minds (feat Werd2Jah) - (4:12) 140 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release

Review: Stepping away from their diligent Deep Dark Dangerous development, Truth return to the mother label with four seismic slabs of sub-soaked deepness. "Jade Helm" is a wandering swagger jam that's given character and life from subtle chime trembles, "Sound Killah" is one of those mid-track game changers when the bassline suddenly switches up with real pensive menace. "With Us" marches forth into a stark dystopian future, our scant feelings of hope raising as the drum rolls really tense up on the breakdown. Finally we hit the EP's title track; a rolling, percussion-heavy cut laced with ghostly prayer horns and shimmering skanks. Superb.

Review: Unstoppable grime ambassador Skepta finally drops his long-awaited fourth album Konnichiwa and it's a complete shutdown. Reflecting his paradigm shift since 2011's Doin It Again, this is Skepta at the very peak of his game. The successful singles are all present and correct as are serious cameos from the like of Pharrell (the stripped back and funky "Numbers"), Novelist (the gritty freestyle-firing "Lyrics") and Wiley & Chip on the sense-blurring "Corn On The Curb". With co-production and cameos from his BBK compadre and brother JME, Skepta's stayed true to his foundations with every bar. Next level.

Review: It's another all-out wide-armed creative assault from the dedicated beat crafters at White Peach. Uniting old friends and new, each cut reminds us why the label is top of grime's fruit bowl. Eva808 polishes up the strings for a moment of subversive cinematica, Gundam's "Swordplay" takes us deep into Samurai territory, and longstanding Peacher Zha gets his paws on a sitar and snaps the instrument into pieces while Nakes's "Axe Riddim" juxtaposes eastern strings with a collection of precision tuned wood blocks. Innovative and forward-thinking... These peaches will never go mouldy.

Played by: Otz
Review: Now officially signed to Deep Medi, Schildhauer and White's Kaiju project are set to break the seal on a year of release silence with a whole new slew of dubwise dynamics. Tapping into the true roots with a real taste for organic elements, both cuts will resonate with the most ardent of classicist; "Burn Down Babylon" is all about the well-plucked bass and humming persistence of the organ. "Wrong Tings" takes us even deeper down the instrumental route with spacious drum elements, bulbous bass and crisp guitar lines. Warm, deep and wholly immersive, there's some awesome science going on here.

Review: Levelling up with every release this year, London's K Man leaps over from Circle Vision to Surfase for his debut solo EP. "Bubbles" leads with a beautiful jazzy dreaminess that lightly sways back and forth with a gentle touch but it's the vocal version with fellow Londoner Janset that's likely to see the club plays as she spits deftly and delicately, giving the track the perfect amount of edge. "Regret" continues the sadboy theme with its introspective, fluttering melodic echoes while "Voyager" takes us deep into space with Joker-style funk to the insistent - but never overpowering - bass.

Review: Bassline king DJ Q lays down a cheeky 1Up: a homage to everyone's favourite spiky ring-pinching blue hedgehog, "Sonic" is a bouncy two-step/breakbeat hybrid littered with vibrant 8-bit samples from the original game. With a bassline the strength of five end-bosses, it's clear Q's having a lot of fun right here.

Review: Dom Tarasek aka Commodo has already appeared on perhaps the biggest dubstep labels around, and he made his name from the string of releases on Mala's Deep Medi Muzik - not exactly a bad place to start your career, that's for sure. However, he's now branching out to other quality households, and this new LP on Black Acre feels just right in every single way. Right because his deep, brooding sound fits ever so well with the rest of the label, and right because How What Time flows perfectly as an album unit. There are three tunes on each side of the two slabs of wav, and they work as perfect, tidy trios that carry the same sort of leftward bass sound, one that never goes to deep as to become abstract, but also never gets too violent as to become silly. All in all, it is masterfully executed dubstep for the 2016 palate. Killer.

Review: His first proper body of work since his Mainframe album last year, Joker returns with four more reasons why he's in a league of his own: while "No Face" tickles our cheeks with velvet purple glove, "Only You" switches for a purple boxing glove and knocks us plain out with its big strings and romantic melodic twists. "Planet D" is straight out of the score from movie of Joker's life in 30 years time once he's colonised five planets with his universal funky language. Finally "21" reminds us of Joker's gully roots with a swaggering halftime vibe that flexes mentasm-muscles so hard three gyms have closed down in the time it's taken you to read this review. Classical badman.

Review: Thirty Three nuggets of serious UKG gullyness; Project Allout have already developed a serious reputation for generous dispatches, but this is whole new level. Uniting their many lengmen for a deep exploration of the pastures between bassline house, instrumental grime and the broader realms of bass music, every area is covered. Highlights include the eski angst of Chemist RNS' "Stare", the violin-snapping, post-dubstep darkness of Deadbeat UK's "Graveyard", the outrageous VIP muscles of Hoax and Dubzta's "Twilight Zone" and the sassy vocal flexery of Pavv's "You Got Me". This is just the tip of the bassline iceberg, though. Dig deep and grab your own lenger; there are enough here for everyone.

Review: The latest stop on Lamont's concurrent ascendency in the world of leftfield bass prodigies is none other than 81 UK. Here the label enables him to deliver a searing two-track reminder of why he's boss in bass. "Titanic" is an apocalyptically doom-ridden ghetto joint, all sparse beats and creep FX. "Eyes Closed" on the other hand, is an intense sonic melodrama set to some seriously serpentine trap rhythms and taut orchestral flourishes.

from $2.18
Review: There was a point in Creep N00m's discography that it felt like we were getting album-sized projects every half a year. In comparison to Run Dem, however, they were barely EPs... Cooked over a longer gestation period, marinated in VIPs, sprinkled with cameos (Dubzta, Genoc1de, Ro Nin) and garnished with details and repeating elements, Run Dem is an immersive (not to mention tasty) body of work from start to finish while offering freshness for DJs on every dark, grumbling twist and turn. From the creeped out reverse groans, tightly rolled hi-hats and funky, sleazy kicks of "Fighta VIP" to the paranoid bass warps of "Mass Murder", this is the sound of a man who knows his palette and vision intimately and intuitively.

Review: Bay Area bassmith Dom Mali makes his Tuba debut with a quadrant of sublime steppers. "Neo Dub" has a simple but deadly allure as its elastic sub is stretched into a pulsing groove that builds on every twist and turn. "Secrets" is the early bird soundtrack, all crisp, dewy and full of hope while the oceanic ripples of "Fisherman's Dub" sees us reeling out for a trout but catching a barracuda. Finally we lean back and chill with "Benzo", all flutes, tubular subs and lazy beats, it's an instant soul soother.

Review: When it comes to deep dubby halftime, few labels are as reliable, forward-thinking or exciting as Amit's Amar. Here we find the label boss giving Scrilla the keys to last summer's hummer "Fatty Batty". Adding more melodic layers and cool double-ups on the kicks, Danny's turned in the perfect remix that pays respect to the original while taking it further into pastures unknown. Flip for "Lighter", a straight up dubwise joint with a kick so steady, reliable and dependable it could give you a reference for a mortgage. Serious.

Reading like a who's who in grime (Big Narstie, Skepta, Flowdan, Stormzy, Wiley, D Double E, Sir Spyro, Plastician, Kano, Giggs and loads more) each of the 40 tracks remind us (if we needed reminding) just how well grime has annotated and soundtracked the year. Gully.

Review: Bristol is surely now the UK's official home of bass, and here comes the city's latest export Pharoah K: a producer and drummer who's definitely going places fast. He's been preparing this new EP for a while and it shows in the expert attention to detail. There are four well-crafted jams here with the title track - all deep synths and ghetto bounce - leading the charge. Elsewhere 'Duke" lays on the orchestration to great effect, "Swamp Five" delivers eccentric, scattershot beats and lastly "Arms" is an arms-in-the-air carnival jam.

We've had an Albion release to chow down on in the meantime and beats like these really are worth waiting for: "De Maya" is a powerful hypnotic tabla session, "Flummox" throws cosmic textures into the dub melting pot, "Stick Fight" teases us with breaks through some seriously intricate percussive arrangements, "Game Show" while "Game Show" is more of a magic show, building and twisting with subtlety as the percussion becomes the melody and the melody becomes the bass all before your very eyes. Looking for more techy grit? Jump on Mentha's remix of "Stick Fight".

Review: So far, the shadowy FJH has only felt in EP's and has appeared on a wide number of different imprints dealing in stepping bass rhythms. Moreover, he hasn't released any albums as of yet, so this is his debut and it comes on the excellent Phantom Hertz label. You have over fourteen tunes to salivate over here, and there isn't a filler in site, this is all masterfully executed percussion beating at its best, ranging from more smooth, docile patterns, to darker and more ethereal grooves fit for any sort of bass dance floor. Heavy stuff, check it!

Spacewalk (Doctor Jeep remix) - (4:35) 140 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $2.18
Review: Active since late 2010, its fair to say Tuba have put NYC district Brooklyn on the bass music map with their wealth of output, calling on an international cast of dubstep and bass-inflected talent. The label's latest draws a line from the East Coast to the West Coast, as New Yorker Blind Prophet and British Columbia's Self Evident pair up as Folding City. The four cuts here swerve between 130 and 160bpm, and suggest the duo had plenty of fun flinging stems back and forth with "Groundswell" particularly impressing. The snares and vibes come from jungle but the way it's all put together is more reminiscent of footwork. "Spacewalk" shows a deeper, more soulful side to Folding City and it's followed by a fine remix from New Yorker Doctor Jeep that veers off into DnB territory. A great EP!

Review: Foundation celebrate three years and 20 releases with this supersized clutch of deep, dark and forward-thinking exclusives. Painting a picture of dubstep's most exciting frontiers, highlights hang, slide and oozes from every cavernous corner: Drew's Theory provides meditative intensity on "Harmony", Deafblind & Darkimh twist up the drums in the sludge-packing "Concrete Groove", Krease soundtracks your next nightmares with his late night graveyard romp "Hindsight" while Dillard digs deep into the proper roots with its shimmering classical dub designs. Weighing at 24 tracks, Foundation have pulled out all the stops here... A seriously detailed piece of bass music futurism.

Review: Birmingham dubstep producer Jay Krease has appeared previously on Dead Noise System, Korrupt and Foundation Audio so we can trust the DJ on this one. The Mind Control EP serves up five offerings of deep and dark bass therapy. We particularly enjoyed the smoked out future dub textures on "Beat Goes", the rolling low frequency doom of "Artillery" or the jazzy, liquid drum and bass of "Symmetry" which is reminiscent of classics by Alex Reece or Peshay. There's a killer remix of "Mind Control" by Gaze III as well, check it!

Review: Uprise supergroup LSN step forth with their debut album; a stylised rummage through the genre vaults to paint a picture of the most exciting edges of bass music and how everything tessellates. Just within the opening four tracks we're treated to Massive Attack style barbed dub soul ("Oblivion"), rolling breakbeats ("Shelter"), subverted jungle ("SMBU") and deep, pneumatic dubstep ("Vibration") Deeper again we hit restrained space-aged poetry ("Earthtone") sci-fi Autonomic soul ("Demons") and deep, Samurai-style D&B ("Stillness") And that's just a potted selection of this highly accomplished, consistently detailed and arranged album. Whatever shade of bass you're rooted with, LSN will join the dots for you.

Review: London beatcrafter Sh?m finally goes legit as he translates his Soundcloud hype into official release business with "Bossmode" on Kapsize. "Bossmode" fits the Kapsize suit perfectly with its Joker-style purpleness and strutting/squelchy sci-fi dynamics. Elsewhere on the EP we chow down on robot gully with "Underground" and take things back to the slinky, jazzy dubstep days with "Untitled". Finally we climax with "Vehement", a vibrant slice of synthtronica that stutters and shakes with evocative funk and emotion. A truly interesting EP. If you're the proud owner of a radar and Sh?m isn't on it, you're not using your radar properly.

Review: The Italian-Bristolian has done it again: responsible for one of 2015's most inventive dubstep tracks "Conquer", Piezo has returned with two more creative, exciting and forward-thinking 140 tracks. "Sweat" is all about the big drum swing where the toms sing in harmony and the track rolls with such a funk it's impossible not to dance. "Sugar" is even sweeter thanks to its ever-mutating dub bassline and stark weeping horns that foretell a future we're not even ready for. Trust us; this one's going to pop hard.

Review: Voodoo Rebel mainstay LSWR hooks up with long-time MC collaborator Digi for another beat/bass hybrid that will work well with all dubstep, trap, halftime and bass DJs. With lean groove, the rising hoover tones come from nowhere as Digi provides a demonic sermon. Remix-wise Distro codes a more upbeat funk into the blend while XL Arge takes things right down in the ghetto dungeons. Smoking.

Review: Undisputed godfathers of UK dubstep Horsepower Productions are back with another full length; their first in 12 years since 2004's To The Rescue LP. As Tempa themselves put it succinctly: "Crooks, Crime & Corruption" draws from numerous facets of the UK underground and further afield in order to take you on a compelling, wholly immersive journey. Highlights include "Justify" featuring Harry Keyworth which sounds like Jah Wobble versus Ry Cooder, the deep spiritual house of "Bak 2 NY" or "Kurisoity 6" and the business as usual, street level bass therapy as heard on the raw "Change" or the pure fire junglist anthem "Criminally Insane".

Review: Everyone's gotta have an angle and Nomine's is certainly unique - he makes deep dubstep with Far Eastern influences. His latest missive boasts a sound that evokes mystical temples, secret rituals and ninjas. The sparse and brooding "Blind Man" is based around a movie sample where a young whippersnapper learns the ways of the spirit from a wise old master. "To The Sky" again features minimal arrangements peppered with bassy belches and mystical vocals courtesy of Lustina, and finally "Nomine's Robot" wraps up the release on an uptempo note - all housey kicks and rimshot percussion. Classy and unique!

Review: Oh boy.. Three of modern bass music's finest players collide for the first in a series of collaborative long players on Deep Medi. The results - as you'd expect just reading the line-up - speak for themselves. Every artist's signatures is coded deep into the collection; Kahn's unpredictability and robustness, Commodo's grit and funk and Gantz often unfathomable depths and eastern twangs are all present as we wriggle and writhe to the detuned harmonies of "Crystal Collect", get twisted on the tripped out drum dynamic of "Kibosh" and lose ourselves in the spacious jazz-minded drums of "Unmistakeable". Truly unique.

"Late Night Blues" gets a similarly massive facelift as the deep space is replaced by crisp live drums and added textures. Quintessential version material.

"Ego Dub" dusts off a really cool spoken sample and uses it to trigger and palpitating, rolling sub-rich groove that sits perfectly between club and home. "Refuse" takes us deeper down the root chain with lush washes of entwined vocal harmonies and horns over a soft-skank rhythm. Sprinkled with enticing doses of percussion, instant immersion is guaranteed.

Review: Longstanding low end representor Sleeper ignites the new year on a smouldering slow burn with three deliciously deep steppers on Crucial. "Spread Out" tells a tale of estranged kick drums, connected through trippy FX and a sticky sub. Deeper again, "Burn Finger" takes Sleeper's space explorations to new highs as the drums are even sparser, leaving bags of room for precision positioned bulbous warbles. Finally, we hit the "Prayer Room" for a cosmic adventure into eastern elements. A serious call to dub arms.

Maintaining the subtle game theme he established with "Golden Axe" and "Golden Eye", "Grove VIP" ignites with raw 8-bit cascades while synth-horns add a sense of trappy agitation. "Kaboom" compounds the horns with added hype in a way that more than confirms the track title. Seasick bass a-go-go: "Smeg" takes us back around 10 years ago when the relationship between grime and dubstep was a lot closer and twisted. Finally we hit "Cherry Bomb", an eski-referencing slapper, bolstered by an orchestral backdrop and loaded with classic vocal rhythmic samples. Uppercuts!

Review: British Columbia's deepest export Abstrakt Sonance has enjoyed spins and support from the likes of Mala and Cotti, Seven and J:Kenzo over the years. And it's really not hard to hear why with stark designs like these. "Open Heart" plays with space as AS throws down an array of unique designs and laces them together with off-beat funk, "Soldier" lives up to its name as its percussion militantly charges a rhythm with no relent, "Sometimes" is a warped skanker with a woozy bass purring beneath scant bouncy elements while "Harder Than AMF" hurls us into the fires of bass Hades with its uncompromised saw tooth savagery. No dubstep stone left unturned, there's something for everyone right here.

Review: For you and your crew: Hypho lays down three crisp originals on Slime subsidiary Boss Mode. Hypes takes the lyrical duties over the grime/dubstep hybrid "True Money" before we dip low into Hypho's steppier/broken material on "Handle It" and the cascading percussive elements on "Holdin' On", both tracks that nod deftly at Hypho's close affiliation with Punks and Rebel Bass. For added value Boss Mode have thrown in an instrumental of "True Money" and an insane Zed Bias-level bruk-bashing remix from Murder He Wrote... Murderation!

Review: Spooky touches bass on the impressive Project Allout - we hope that you noticed the pun there - with his usual bag of tricks, this time in the form of "Bun Fire", a fast-paced breakbeat stomper coated in a healthy bit of dubstep wobble and boasting a drum & bass sensibility in the school of thought of your Dj Hazards. There a fine artillery of remixers who all twist and mangle the original up in fine style: Notion, Moony, Dubzta, and Trends all deliver the goods, the latter being particularly impressive with his grime reinterpretation. Fireee!
