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: 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.

from $2.18
Review: Bristol bass brutality: Sentiment makes his Tumble Audio debut with a package that comprises three originals and two heavyweight remixes. "Fomo" is a bounty of dynamics and designs as bass textures from the last 10 years of grime, dubstep and trap fuse and fight one another. "7 Looks Better Than 8" is much more a straight-up icy grime piece (think Asa & Sorrow's introspective style) while "Flexin" opts for a sci-fi grime bounce similar to that of another fellow Bristolian, Joker. Remix-wise Chimpo chows down on some serious space cake while Killjoy throws in a little 4/4 UKG strut. Nice.

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: 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: To be honest, it's about time that Logan Sama had the space to compile his own series of mythical London club Fabric's, Fabriclive series. The grime DJ started his career back on the equally important Rinse FM back in 2002, and has been an important part of the club's development over the years that saw grime and dubstep blow up. At number 83 in the series, Sama drops a selection of tunes that are wholly representative of his DJ sets in Fabric's Room 1; the mix contains tunes by everyone from grime pioneer Wiley, to vocalist and producer JME, and a whole load of lesser known names that have kept the grime scene evolving. This is the real deal, there ain't not other like it around these days. Recommended.

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: Hot on the heels of their first V/A halftime/beats-based EP, Noisia's Division serves up another deliciously leftminded multi-artist EP. "Nomad" says it all; screwloose bass, haunted elements and an all-round alien vibe, Noisia and Mony/Poly have truly killed it. Other highlights include the screeched out craziness of Posij's "Grab The Cookies" and the rave breaks and garbled sample abuse Bleep Bloop's "Recombine". Seriously forward-thinking, let's hope these Division EPs continue for the foreseeable.

Up To Speed (feat Trim) - (3:01) 140 BPM
from $2.18
Review: Bristol's Asa and Sorrow have struck up quite the partnership over the last few years, and the duo are quickly establishing themselves as lean, mean machine for producing well-oiled slabs of mutant bass experiments. They're back on Kapsize this time - home to big boys such as Benga and Joker - and they've brought the fire with five lethal doses of almost-dubstep, and finely deconstructed pseudo-house. Across all five bangers, the harmonies float over punchy breaks, devious hooks and pounding walls of low frequencies. It's one for the purists, that's for sure, but this is also gear that can easily appeal toolbars of a good, casual bass-shake.

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: 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: In case the last wait of a year wasn't quite long enough between Subaltern outings, Taiko leaves us hanging even longer (16 months) this time. File under 'all good'... 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".

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: 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: Babylon's fall has been foretold once more. This time by Dubstep Rotterdam co-founder Frenk Dublin. Continuing to whittle his impeccably authentic dub stick, "Time To Fall" hits with loose but stern command, powdered with refracted reverbs, a soft-but-solid skank and an ultimately bouncy kick/bass arrangement. "Pula Dub" marches with much more militancy; rampant kicks drive the way as the instrumentation is displayed in a much leaner composition. Finally we hit "Steppin' The Light" where a much more techno mindset is applied in the sonic aesthetic of the bassline and rolling kicks. Think mid 2000s Get Physical and you're not far off.

Review: Los Angeleno Oxossi has been plying away at his craft for the last couple of years, with his debut release on Banana Stand Sound in 2015 and now for Sleeper's UK based imprint Crucial Recordings. "Solace" delves into the exotic, all full of esoteric charm like an opium haze and featuring Rider Shaffique's spiritually enlightening monologue. "Reflections" up the ante a bit with some well rolled bass frequencies and an infectiously wonky melody, both snaking away in densely reverberated bliss. Finally "The Tempest" gloriously crosses over from dub into something else altogether with its mesmerising harp melody, but just wait until that snarling sub bass sets in; pure fire bro!

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".

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!

His first drop of 2016 suggests Dayzero is still on a course set for the top, aligning with Fat Kid On Fire for a most impressive four track release that ends on a heavyweight collaboration with Karnage. Don't sleep on the preceding three solo cuts from Dayzero however, as collectively they really make this worthy of your time and attention. The heavily chopped vocals and superbly structured percussion sets opener "Allca" apart as our pick; the stuttering kicks really feel like they are bouncing off the bassline.

Review: Noisia's Division operation deliver their very first multi-artist EP featuring far-out bass tests from the likes of Monuman (AKA northern D&B upstart Emperor), Signs, ARKTKT, Ponicz and JNTHN STEIN. Not a well-travelled road in sight; each act delivers something resoundingly fresh and exciting : Noisia & Ivy Lab get insanely lopsided, Monuman digs a filthy bass grave before lifting us to the heavens with evocative chords, Signs gets the motor running with an array of twisted engine samples while ARKTKT activates a spacey trap mode, all bouncy and gravity-free. Last but not least, Ponicz shreds up with a toxic instrumental hip-hop swag while JNTHN STEIN kidnaps a rainbow then pushes it down the stairs... In the same way Division push the envelope.

Review: If any label is going to wrap up one of grime's biggest years to date, it's Butterz. Responsible for the genre's best parties and home to artists from Swindle to Faze Miyake to Terror Danjah, Butterz are one of the most consistent and creative grime flagbearers of the game. 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: 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: The inimitable SVBKVLT is one of the only labels out there that is making grime music as it should be heard; none of this pseudo bass and quasi house, just the real gear aimed at getting your head nodding up and down in the car - shotgun, preferably. Kai Luen is a newcomer to the scene, but we're sure that we'll be hearing him soon and often given how masterful his skills on the mixing desk seem to be with these ten stone-cold killers. "The Hollow Ghost" itself contains all the elements of classic grime joints by the likes of Plastician, while others like "LA 92" or strive down headier paths, sometimes landing on hints of hip-hop or Burial-like percussion excursions. The real shit.

Review: Bangor sextet LSN prepare us for their forthcoming album Oblivion with a well balance collection of 140/85 pieces. "Fear & Love" is a restrained croaker with a brushy halfstep and fluctuating bassline that bears his teeth but never bites. "Stillness" flips us into a vocal halftime vibe with vocals that are reminiscent of Mezzanine-era Massive Attack. "HMS Death" lives up to its name; a stately ocean liner of a tune with its palpitating deep sea dread bass and ocean waves of iced atmospheres. Finally we hit "NOW" an on-point halftime blunderbuss with all the necessary amen flurries you could ever wish for. Amped for the album.

Review: One of the key message makers in today's deep dub landscape, Dubbacle returns with three deliciously detailed and evocative slabs of contemporary bass. Both "Lovelost" and "Transcendance" are score-worthy as they glide us through dense beds of synthesis and atmospheres. "Human" is the main player for the dance as it ups the charge with an arresting female vocal, unique drum phrasing and a sub that fluctuates from nowhere. Not dissimilar to Mad Professor's Massive Attack works, "Human" will touch serious hearts when dropped at the right time.

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.

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: Fresh from coughing up "Green Phlegm" all over the dance last summer, J Beatz returns with deep sea scudder. All synth horns and rifle snares, like its namesake, this is capable of going deep deep deep in the mix and it won't rust for decades to come. Remix-wise Project Allout have spoilt us with highlights coming from Spooky (twisted metal crunching sounds), Deadbeat UK (speed garage vibes) and Dubzta (uptempo rippage). Powerful.

Direction - (6:09) 126 BPM

Review: Since 2010, and coming out of the whole post-dubstep scene, Manchester's Alex Coulton has been among the best of the UK bass artists. His skills being the mixing board have seen him travel from label to label, stopping off at the likes of Idle Hands, All Caps, Livity Sound, and even the mighty Tempa. Coulton returns to the latter with a follow-up to last year's "Recall" bombshell, and he's in no mood to mess around here. "Ambush" is a tribalesque tech-house number with a rattling percussion that renders it UK through and through; "Direction" sees the producer return to his more usual mood by serving up a broken bundle of drums and percussion curling around loose melodies and a dubbed-out makeover. For fans of Hessle output - what that bassline, son! Hot!

Review: Tempa are always a good litmus test of where the UK bass scene is currently at. Here they present their selection of highlights from 2015 and this broadly diverse selection is proof that bass is in rudimentary health. Standouts amongst the six tracks featured include Epoch's raw and doomy trap-stepper "The Ville", the futuristic footwork of "Aut" by Cliques and the creepy, abstract beats of "Closed Minds" by Biome.

Review: Chris Innasound comes through with some phat, smoking tunes, and somehow manages to land on a label with a very similar outlook, the unstoppable FatKidOnFire. Four tunes, four walls of beats and bass for your body and mind; "It Is What It Is" takes a slow, marching rhythm and slaps a fat wallop of bass underneath it, and "What You Need" sounds like its natural development, a frozen, harmonic bundle chunk of noise with a rhythmic pattern. "Re-Entry" rolls and flaunts its more tribal percussion in front of a subtly squelching load of mutant bass, whereas "Between The Lines" takes after the deep and heady dubstep that both the artist and the label are closely associated to. Heavy gear.

Review: Version science: Prescott explores some of reggae's most discerning classics and subverts them over an unfailing digidub riddim. A classic one-track album mission, the bubbling bass beats are a consistent spine while an all-star cast appear over the groove to great effect. Highlights include Ranking Joe's Eek-A-Mouse chats on "Ganja Pipe", Jahdan Blakkamoore's nasal dancehall chants on "No Bad Vibes" and Pad Anthony's softer soul melodic style on "Murder". One track, eight vibes - this one's special in all directions.

Review: Leave your expectations at the door before indulging in this killer drop on Deep Medi, with Swindle marking the second part of his trilogy of EPs ahead of an album scheduled for release in 2013. The title track is sheer dubstep rave fused with killer funk licks, while "Belfast" fuses jungle breaks with sirens and Daft Punkish synths. Our pick of the bunch through is "Mischief", which uses all manner of jazz samples (woodflute anyone?) and chops and rearranges them in the most beguiling manner. Swindle is one of the few producers taking dubstep in new and interesting directions - do check.
