Devils Advocate by Dubzta on Project Allout Cue Track
Dubzta - "Devils Advocate" - (4:08) 140 BPM
from $1.49
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.

Pump It Up by Trends on Triangulum Recordings Cue Track
Virus - (4:09) 140 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Mean Street bossman Trends lays down two contrasting examples of his abilities with precision: "Pump It Up" is a straight up nod to UKG's boldest era with vicious two-steps and a powerful funk sample that will unite everyone in a five mile radius. "Virus", meanwhile, is an all-out emotional affair with rich strings, touching chord changes and a smoky halftime beat all tied together with a waspy acid sine. Stunning.

Inkarv & JP - "Solace" - (4:21) 85 BPM
from $1.49
Played by: ARtroniks
Review: New Zealand dub champions Averted Vision apply their radio show and event dynamics to a new release. Repping the broadest dubstep sound while staring defiantly into the future, each cut tickles a different corner of bass music's underbelly. ARtroniks embraces the skitty, icy spirit of Detroit on "Trossen", Epoch subverts a very well known Lafayette Afro Rock Band horn sample over a trappy kick-snare-sub combo, Lowquid breaks into an abandoned cathedral to the soundtrack of harrowing harps and strings while Lefty gets his Special Request on with a breakbeat cut that's reminiscent of early Headz material. Finally Inkarv & JP get all breezy and skippy (a la Vaun or Phaeleh) with the sublime spine-melter "Solace". Beautiful.

Pushap - (4:30) 85 BPM
from $1.49
Review: One of the most consistent men in future dub, Madd opens his remit even further to explore a wider range of tempos and roots influences. The result isn't just a collection of powerful heaters, but also a kindly reminder than we don't need to operate within such strict tempo constraints. Great examples include the classic jungle jitters of "Every Little Thing", the sleazy, spacey slo-mo steppiness of "Blaze Fiyah" and the Critical-level D&B speaker-scrapper "Pushap". You'd be madd not to pick this one up.

Review: Danish dub dons Surfase celebrate their 25th release with a walloping 24-track refresh session that brings everyone up to speed on two years of monthly dispatches. All their decorated contributors are present and correct: RDG, G Double, Gaze Ill, Subtle Mind and many more. Highlights include the swooning strings and rattling drums of Server's "Boxing", Subreacher's chest-crushing bass wobbler "The Machine" and RDG's insanity work out "It's All In Your Mind". It's not in your mind, though... This is as real as it gets. Here's to another 25 killer releases.

Poltergeist/Righteous Dub by Kaiten on Sure State Cue Track
Righteous Dub - (6:32) 140 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Following their official debut with Oldgold, Sure State up the ante with a two-track bass tornado from Cincinnati-based Sub:Lvl affiliate Kaiten. "Poltergeist" is well measured slice of darkness laced with deep breath textures, ghostly synthetic stretches and a lava bassline that refuses to sit still. "Righteous Dub" takes us deeper into the night with a bassline-focused groove and DJ Madd-style dub vocal echoes piercing the dense low end fog with vibrancy. Another solid release from a label that's shaping up with serious sonic promise.

Justice by Kaiju on Deep Medi Musik Cue Track
Creeper - (5:29) 140 BPM
from $1.49
Review: After plates for Osiris, Lion Charge and Ruff Cut, Bristol pairing Jamie Schildhauer and Paul White bring their Kaiju project to the Deep Medi label. Lead track "Justice" has been a much sought after dubplate for some time, and a fine example of Kaiju's innate understanding of dub science implementing only a few elements - haunting flutes, floating synths and crisp percussion - with deadly precision. Justice is served! Complementing this, Kaiju conjure some truly monstrous atmospheres with "Creeper" - if Demdike Stare turned their hands to steppahs it might sound like this. Deep Medi is nearing its 100 release and every one of them have been superb.

6 Block (Demon 6FBS remix) - (5:07) 140 BPM
from $1.49
Played by: GAZE ILL
Review: Destination Croatia for the next M.U.D adventure as label newcomers 207 and Kodin lay down three examples of industrial strength futuristic gritty grooves. "6 Block" is a physical roller, all elbow jabs and shoulder rolls by way of well-oiled drums. "Scelestic" takes us down a deeper, more reflective path but still rolls with precision tuned rhythm dynamics and ghostly bass tones hanging ominously like low hanging clouds. "Tanc" is the silkiest of the set thanks to well-spaced detuned synth stabs and another lesson in liquid-like kick/snare patterns. Looking for a bit of rough on the side? Look no further than label boss Demon's remix of "6 Block". Rocking.

Played by: ARtroniks, J:Kenzo
Review: Released last year, Kenzo and Collinjah laid down serious sermons on "Straight Defeat". Now time for an instrumental (in case Collinjah's words are too much to handle) and two industrial strength remixes: Caspa bangs the war drum for a greasy mechanical roller while Jubei ups the tempo ante with a tribal stepper that strips back the elements and lets Collinjah's vocals take the centre spotlight. Serious dancefloor business.

Big Slug by Pinch/Mumdance on Tectonic Cue Track
Big Slug (instrumental) - (4:37) 64 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Following on from their statement b2b mix CD, Pinch and Mumdance have been back in the studio together to cook up this rough and ready single for the formers Tectonic imprint. Riko Dan brings a savage Jamaican swagger to the title track with his fired-up MC turn, while the beat keeps the pressure high from start to finish. "Lucid Dreaming" provides the moody alternative to that party-starting manifesto with some of that Pinch-esque iciness, a deadly restrained menace lingering over the track without ever needing to resort to big drops or crescendos. There's also an instrumental of "Big Slug" for those who need it, although trying to step to Dan's own vocal is not advisable.

Review: Camo & Krooked, the mighty Austrian duo signed exclusively to Hospital Records, return to the fore with "Between The Lines", an immense 14-track remix album which takes their award-winning debut Cross The Line to a whole new level. Particular highlights from across the selection include Inside Info's superb, tech-y interpretation of "Anubis", SubZero's turbocharged jump up remix of "Run Riot" and Funtcase's unrelenting version of "Hot Pursuit". There are also some exclusive tracks from the boys themselves, just to top things off. Miss this at your peril!

Review: We've been waiting for this one for a minute: Kahn & Neek's Gorgon Sound outfit finally unleash this mighty re-fix of Kahn's 2012 Deep Medi outing "Dread". Warm skanks, gravelly toasting and a rolling muscular momentum, it's a whole new tune. "Late Night Blues" gets a similarly massive facelift as the deep space is replaced by crisp live drums and added textures. Quintessential version material.

Review: The second London/NYC Transatlantic session within four months; it's clear the fusion between the two city's labels is healthy, creative and ultimately fertile. Highlights across this international modern bass romp include the delicate jazz samples of Matt Deco's spacious stepper "Absent Minder", the juicy digidub bubbles and woozy horns of Dubsworth & Tapa's "Backflipper", Bakir's percussive snake-hip wriggler "Hyperion" and the breezy hums, distant yearns and dampened rim shots of Jobanti's "Afrique".

Review: Got a lighter? Then get ready to raise it. Haven't got a lighter? Start smoking... Koven most certainly are with this brand new EP. Stadium bass enriched in emotion, Max and Katie showcase their broadest abilities across four tracks here: the smouldering halfstep yearns of "From The Start", the bright, breezy Kove-like D&B tones of "One's Own", the Olympic-level lover's theme "Get This Right" and the slower, swinging ebbs and flows and orchestral dynamics of "Lasting"... Each cut comprising their widest screen portrait to date. Essential for those special tingly moments every good set necessitates.

Review: Moonshine's manoeuvres in the deep continue to impress with this highly accomplished collaborative remix album. A throwback to their original Steppin' Forward album - released March 2014 - the Jamaican label have given each contributor the parts to a fellow label mate's tune and asked them to get creative. The results are as consistent and progressive as the original. Every track is a highlight but stand-out essentials include the bubblesome digidub of Bukkha's juicy switch on Tuff & Powa's "Outlaw Music", Adam Prescott's sinewy shakedown of RSD's "Know U 2" and the foamy subs and wriggling melodica on Roommate's version of Alpha Steppa's "Shinkansen".

Review: Well over a year has passed since Deep Heads' inaugural Deep Heads Dubstep collection so the London label are making up for lost time by recruiting Bristol's ever-awesome Phaeleh for selection and blending duties. The result is a sprawling 32 track saga that digs deep into both the label and the genre's psyche. Ranging from classics such as Submo's 2010 vocal gem "Sunshine" to Phaeleh's own universally uniting remix of Hatti Vatti's "You" by way of show-stopping burners such as N Dread's kick-heavy two-step shimmy-shaker "Wonderful" and Reso's star-gazing mechanical roller "Hemisphere", it's yet another essential compendium from one bass music's most reliable, forward-thinking labels.

Played by: Konsida
Review: Dutch demon NO/SA steps over to Phantom Hertz for his first full EP. If you've been following his output on Four:Twenty or heard his remix of Truth, you'll know how deep this one goes already... "Systems" is built around icy pads as palpitating kicks troop through the sludge and waspy designs squirm amid the mix. "No Pulse" is darker and deeper again; all droney, sticky subs so thick they almost smother the drums. Finally we hit "Kosher", a much brighter affair that sits somewhere between future garage and dubstep thanks to its spacious groove and delicate musicality.

Straight Up - (5:42) 140 BPM
from $1.49
Review: Distance returns with a sentiment every single one of us can sign up to. He's not all chats, either; "Long Live The Groove" is a swaggering, sweaty slab of swinging bass music that develops momentum on every bar. Really juicy, funky stuff, there's a reason this has been kept on dub for so long. "Can You (Dub)" follows, and it's all about the drums. Fine-tuned and polished, there's a sense of liquid movement to the rhythm as strange designs and eerie cries drive deep into your ears. Finally we hit "Straight Up". The name says it all; a moody bass hook that doesn't quit, toxic subs and a weighty halftime drum arrangement... It's straight up badness, as you'd expect from the Chestplate bossman.

Review: Fresh from developing their Blacklist project, Innamind return their focus to the mother label with a collabo joint of heavyweight proportions. From the sleazy live bass lollops and dancefloor creeper sensations of "Outlaw", you know you're in for a treat. Other highlights include "Farout", where strange mid-range bass tones skip playfully around a heavily textured vocal sample, and "Drumspeak", where immense layers of percussion and rhythms are stitched with serious attention to detail. Powerful.

from $1.49
Review: Skepta steps up with one of this year's most unifying grime cuts so far. Laying down crystal commentary over a crisp-but-squidgy groove, Skepta lives up to the track's name as he shuts down certain behavioural aspects of peers and fans, certain misconceptions of grime and many other ironies he and the BBK crew battle on the regs. Massive... But then you already knew that, right?

from $1.49
Review: We've been waiting for this a long, long time... "N To The Gs" is The Generals' most generous release since the "Five Star" EP two years ago. Five tracks deep, each one reminding us how hard Footsie and D Double E work. "Levels" will be recognisable to all house heads as they murk the Dickens out of a My Nu Leng vibe. "Bang Boi" updates the angular, aggy eski beat riddim with additional voices from Brakeman & Chronic while "Murking Yearly" nods its head to a classic west coast hip-hop mood. The most critical moment for many, though, will be an update of the 2003 classic "Frontline" wherein original member Monkstar returns for the first time in about a decade. Heritage hype.

Review: More multi-textured, tempo-flexing darkness from French troupe Kantyze. Scraping the slime off the dungeon walls, drying it out, powdering it and lacing your coffee with it, each of these cuts create a woozy, dissonant feeling deep within. From the soaking wet ricochet drum hits of the title track to the pneumatic hammer kicks and subverted euphoria of the synth hook on "Demise" via the shimmering cymbals and oceanic Detroitian pads of "Hubot", Kantyze are fulfilling every ounce of hype they've received in recent months. Long may this continue.

Review: For Andrew Ferguson's first release away from Tempa his Nomine alias surfaces on AMAR, and to add that extra statistic, it's the first release from another artist to appear on AMIT's label. Opening track "Voodoo Native" is all about tribal drums that are made to fit a linear techno mould, while 9er's rhymes in the bass, clap and breakdown heavy "99 Aachen" will appeal to all you Phi-Life Cypher fans out there. Drums are stripped, atmospheres are tense and pianos are blurry in the title-track, while "Closed Door" is UK bass music made for a sewer rave.

Review: If anyone can call their album Integrity and really mean it, it's JME. Hard working, longstanding, devoid of self-blowing social media breeze and, most importantly, an incredibly dextrous and intelligent lyricist; JME is one of grime's most authentic, respect-worthy definers. Backed with beats from the likes of Joker, Preditah, Mystry, Rude Kid, Teeza, Joker and his main man Deeco, this is JME's most extensive and exciting work to date. Highlights can be found on every track, but if you're not gassed by the crystal observations of "F**ries 96", the incredible over-layered vocals and 8-bit textures of "Game" and top-table tag-team tear-ups with Wiley, Big Narstie, D-Double-E. Top contender for grime album of the year.

Review: Whether it's as a performer, a producer or a label head honcho, J:Kenzo has never done things by halves, so Artikal's debut long player was always going to be special. 15 exclusive cuts from the label's talented family and friends, this collection of contributions doesn't just document where bass music is at, but where it's heading. Each track is a highlight in itself, but it's cuts like the slinky hypnotic groove and cosmic congas of TMSV's "Scorpion", Sleeper's star-gazing, dub-drenched sub science of "Coxsone Dub", Skeptical's lesson minimalism and aggy restraint ("Skavenger") and Eshone's treacle-like dirge "Qualia" that really represent the depth, scope and vision of Artikal. Designed for the dance, arranged so well it works as an entire listening experience, Artikal don't do things by halves.

Review: What is there to say about this release? Featuring appearances from all the greatest Playaz crew from DJ Hazard, Lynx, Annix, Original Sin, Prolix, Jaydan and Sub Zero, if your idea of a decent night involves lashings of upfront drum & bass, then get your coat. This one's for you. With a frankly unbelievable line-up of incredible dancefloor-smashing tunes including "Lonely Days" by Jaydan and "Get Dark" by Optiv & BTK, the only excuse you've got for not bagging this is that you've already got it. Seriously.

Review: FKOF continue to fire full-pelt into the creative unknown. This time rising German artist Causa is in the driving seat. And he's taking us to the darkest possible destinations. "Dismaying" belies its title in every way as the thunderclap snares shatter and tightly-clipped, reversed-tone percussive elements clatter. "Mighty Dub" plays on similar sounds with a heavier, stampier approach where shiny aluminium designs wobble and falter with trippy effect. Deeper again, "Invasion" boasts an array of trippy moaning processes while "Blaster" swaggers on a woozy skank. Unique and forward-thinking... Just as you'd expect from FatKidOnFire.

from $1.49
Review: Plastician's '08 debut album gets revisited. Coming straight outta Croydon with the gnarliest beats imaginable, the legendary dubstep/grime pioneer brings us such iconic anthems as "Intensive Snare" featuring the agile lyrical prowess of East London's Skepta which is all "high hats, treble and bass!" alongside such rambunctious riddims as "Real Things" which brings in Frisco, Chronic, Tempz and Esco as well. Elsewhere, things get more dubbed out (see "Hocus Pocus" or "Shallow Grave") and mournful and melodic, like breathtakingly beautiful "Japan" which concludes the album. An outstanding body of work and an essential for dubstep heads new and old.

Review: After last year's On My Mind release with Flava D, Royal T is back on Butterz with another sure shot of grimey pressure. As well as the instrumental beats, "Shotta" comes in two versions voiced by P Money and Footsie respectively with very different results. P Money brings a fierce and fiery delivery that pushes the already-hype track into dangerous levels of liveliness, while Footsie takes a more restrained approach with no less presence in his flow. Aside from those show-stealers, Royal T gets to stretch his legs on playful garage house interlude "Limbo" and the adventurous climes of "Glacier" with its melting pot of influences feeding into a truly diverse jam.

Review: Sophomore session heaviness: Joker returns with his long-awaited second album The Mainframe, and it's clear his purple shades are still hooked on tight. Developing his distinctive brew of bass and rich synth funk, Joker's unique signature is scribbled across the whole piece of work; from the epic, orchestral dubstep drama of "Boss Mode" to the gritty, widescreen R&B of "Wise Enough" via the Swindle-style jazz of "An Intervening Episode" and the concept-style three-piece "Scene" narrative where the real tale of album unfolds. Second album cliches are ten a penny... The Mainframe sees Joker shoving his purple-gloved finger up at them all. Essential.

Review: Dutch dub dude Dubbacle doffs his cap to the past with a salute to formative, genre-shaping event FWD>>. The result is a sweet, jazzy skanker that's reminiscent of a young Skream's deeper work. "Back To The Future" retains the authentic dub elements with a dramatic horn riff that's straight out of the King Tubby playbook while "Tear It Up" plays the bad guy of the story; all sweaty, sleazy and swaggering. Finally we hit "Soundboy Ballin' Out"... A bulbous chubby roller with big soundsystem vocals, it's prime for any shape, size or sub-genre of dubstep set. Go on, try it.

from $1.49
Review: Spooky's riot-inducing 2012 shock-out gets a mean and moody VIP treatment from the big man himself. That immense, back-hunching bassline remains the same but the beats have switched with swaggering, trap-like grizzles and grunts. Doctor Jeep, meanwhile, flips the UK funky bird with wall-smashing drums and a relentless fizzy groove. Further on we hit another VIP as Jeep tears apart 2013's "Ghost Dance" and completely rewrites the bassline over the jugular-tickling eski beats. A little too riotous? Check Spooky's subversion for a more deep-space-minded remix; all twisted sirens and waspy bass, it's yet another dark scud from Spooky's spotless weapon armoury. Handle with care.

Review: Hot on the heels of "Artillery" on Four40, Birmingham bass-buster Tuff Culture delivers an equally dark and distinctive cut on Project Allout. A strutting 4/4 garage joint coded with sacks of space and slinky subs, it utilises gangster-style synth horns with a subtle funk effect. Remix-wise Enigma Dubz takes us back to the dubstep source where those horns sounds even more aggy and dramatic while Dr Cryptic lets rip with a firing, uptempo 4/4 cut that sits somewhere between bassline house and juke. Hench heaven.
