Review: We often forget that the 2nd Drop imprint has been as important to dubstep and contemporary bass music as other more above-radar labels like Tempa or Hessle Audio. They've been going string since the noughties, and plenty of well-respects artists have passed through with their own low frequencies. London's DJRUM has been a mascot of some sort for the label, choosing to release all of his work though 2nd Drop. He's back with another four slices of daring, cutting-edge bass experimentation, and "Forgetting" is suitably broken-down and off the beaten track; "Projection" steers completely clear of beats or bass and instead delivers a fine, piano-led ambient sketch. "Induction" is a minimalistic sort of jungle with plenty of cosmic sonic flair, while "Forgetting Coda" once again steps into the realm of piano solos and acoustic improvisation. A different, refreshing take on their bass heritage.

Music For Two Kalimbas - (5:39) 65 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.99
Review: The title track on Randomer's first release for Dekmantel is deceptive. Although the rhythm flails and rolls with the UK producer's usual sense of urgency, it is swathed in misty, hazy melodies. There is no such ambiguity on "My Ears Hurt"; earning its place on the label's UFO Series, the arrangement features a rhythm that weaves its way in and out of a myriad of tonal blips and bleeps. In contrast, "Rendell Pips" and "Music for Two Kalimbas" are powerful DJ cuts. In the absence of any unusual sideways turns, Randomer relies on tight drums, rolling rhythms and plunging breakdowns to lead the listener down the wormhole.

Review: Despite now being 25 years into their career, Plaid duo Ed Handley and Andy Turner show no signs of showing up. If The Digging Remedy - their 11th studio set - is anything to go by, their instincts remain as sharp as ever. They've always been capable of creating magical music that contrasts experimental electronic rhythms with picturesque melodies and mood-enhancing sounds, and The Digging Remedy is full of the stuff. Intriguingly, many of the tracks seem deeper and more subdued than previous explorations, with clear ambient and neo-classical influences amongst the classic electro and IDM flavours you'll find on the album's more up-tempo moments.

Review: Seriously otherworldly tear-out sounds to be heard on Vromm's gnarly lead cut "Lake Monster" - a track which sounds like swamp creatures gnawing on a fleshy carcass to the breakneck beats of Aphex Twin. "Motor Hell" is a skittery, half-stepping monster itself too, while for something linear "Nomad" delivers a darkly straight up groove. Then enter the doom lord rave of "Zombie". Is it Halloween already?

Review: We all know and love Mark Pritchard. The Cornish producer has been one of Warp's finest artists since the '90s, and he has produced nothing but excellence from day one. We don't need to go into his history, as you should bloody well know it given the fact that you've landed here, but we will give you a little taster of what is at the heart of Under The Sun. The sound is definitely one that is shifting in shape, and while he has been known to make everything from techno to futuristic jungle, this LP is much more about mood and vibe, something that is clear from the appearance of Radiohead's Thom Yorke on "Beautiful People". That is not to say that the album is in any way too delicate or soft and, in fact, there are plenty of dark and foreboding moments that have rendered this dude's musical career so illustrious.

Review: Trust Maurice Fulton to surprise us. Having seemingly abandoned his Syclops pseudonym following the critical and commercial success of the superb 2008 full-length, I've Got My Eye On You, he's resurrected it for a surprise sophomore album. Predictably, A Blink of An Eye is a bit good. Picking up where the previous album left off, it delivers a warped fusion of titanium-plated electronics, leftfield acid jack, freestyle jazz flourishes and intergalactic mutant disco. Formidably twisted but hugely enjoyable, it gleefully charges off in many different directions, mixing shirts-off anthems (see the brilliant "Sarah's E with Extra P"), with curious percussion jams (the afro-centric "Jump Bugs") and curiously blissful, Boof-ish excursions ("5 In"). Stellar stuff.

Review: Pink Skull's impressive 2011 album Psychic Warfare - a triumph of trippy electronica/alternative rock fusion - gets a welcome re-release. The original album - a thirteen-track assault on the senses that variously touches on krautrock, psychedelia, space rock, stoner pop, spacey electronica and industrial funk - is here accompanied by a swathe of bonus cuts. Of these, it's the 15-minute, deep space ambient epic "Geos" that really stands out, though the jangly, swirling instrumental "Sphinx Proof" is also impressive. The accompanying remixes are largely impressive, too, with Ray Mang's punk-disco dub of "Summer Reading", Worst Friend's hazy Balearic rework of "Human Hair Disco", and Brassica's thrillingly quirky revision of "Bee Noise" all hitting the spot.

Review: It's rare that an electronic album is the biggest album of the year, or at least the most hyped. That's certainly the case with Syro, Richard D James first official release under his Aphex Twin moniker for some 13 years. So, is it any good? For starters, it sounds like an Aphex Twin album. Listen through to the 12 tracks, and many of his familiar staples are present - the "Digeridoo" era rave breakbeats, the mangled synth-funk mash-ups, the intoxicating ambient-era melodies, the warped basslines and the skittish drill & bass style rhythms. There's madness, beauty and intensity in spades. In other words, it's an Aphex Twin album, and - as so many have pointed out since the album's release was announced - there's no-one else quite like Richard D James.

Review: 2013 was the last time we heard from Praveen Sharma aka Braille and Travis Stewart aka Machinedrum, who together have always made music as Sepalcure. In fact, it was this project that allowed them to make a name for themselves via Scuba's Hotflush Recordings, and the duo return to the the label with this new album, Folding Time. The best way to describe these scorchers is to dub them under neo-R&B, a rather wide banner, we know, but it really gets the mood of these tunes across. Electronic beats are always an important part of the arrangements, but the melodies and vocals are soulful, drenched in a spiritual pop flair that makes this LP as smooth as f***, and a perfect comeback to this great project.

Review: Breaking out of his musical (comfort) zone and touring schedule as one half of Kompakt Records stars Walls, a deeper side to Alessio Natalizia's music oeuvre was shown on the excellent Not Waving debut, Umwelt, before then going on to compile the killer "Mutazione" compilation of Italian New Wave 1980-1988 for Strut Records. Spanning 9 tracks Human Capabilities takes the sound of Umwelt and the subsequent super limited cassette only "reinterpretations" of Redacted and mixes harder percussive tracks alongside explorations of melody through ambient pieces. On titles Mathematical Man, Double Blind and Defensive Function, industrial and kosmische percussion is pushed to the fore, while Power Source Above Beam Line is the closest thing to a club track Alessio has produced outside of Walls. However, it's the more melodic Future Rain, Etosha Pan Aderci and the closing Satie homage, Conscious/Subliminal that a new side to the project can be heard. Having been named after a This Heat song, Not Waving is developing beyond that to go as far as the album title suggests.

Review: Having launched his career by releasing a trio of albums on the same day back in 2011, Lord Raja (originally just Raja) has been somewhat quiet in recent years. In fact, his only release of note has been a 2013 EP on Ghostly International. Here he returns to Sam Velenti's imprint with a fresh full-length. Constant Moth is a typically otherworldly and out-there concoction, with maudlin textures, ambient sounds and discordant electronics riding IDM-inspired rhythms, bass-heavy glitch-hop breaks and all manner of techno-tinged beat patterns. It's mostly a highly enjoyable listen, with enough ideas and imaginative twists and turns to stand up to repeat plays. Even so, it might take you a while to really get a handle on it.

Review: The latest addition to the Sonic Groove roster is UNC, a producer from Italy. He opens his account on the US label with "Shesha", a spellbindingly hypnotic techno groove, which sounds like it was recorded at 20,000 leagues beneath the sea. By contrast, "Xellerate" is a densely tangled web of broken beats that is too abstract to work on the dance floor. "Anarchemy" sees UNC back in club mode with its dense, slamming beats and thundering, stepping rhythm hitting the listener like a breezeblock in the face. Finally, there's "Sanskrit Vinyasa"; with its nagging, insistent percussion and snaking bass, it is UNC's most subtle and sophisticated production so far.

Review: Tessier Ashpool is label mainstay Liar's "boutique label, focusing on technical rigour & precision, synergistic structure, and a sci-fi heritage". And according to their own PR "we are proud to showcase four new rising stars that have wisely aligned themselves under the Tessier-Ashpool banner". Starting out with the lush ambience of TryTryDieDown's "Romance Guise" they're then straight into the tough stuff with Rejig's absolutely brutal "Agility Test" an expedition in future-bass-industrial crossover. Sheffield trio Denham Audio deliver some dusty breaks that sound like early 90's UK hardcore on the wrong vinyl speed; this one's wicked! Finally "Ricochet" by Malaysian bass exorcist Moslem Priest is another tough as nails experiment in low-end therapy that will throw you against the wall with its intensity.

Review: Real is Par Grindvik's debut album, and it explains why he is so well regarded. The Swede-in-Berlin is as much at home making the mellow, dreamy ambient of "Never Give In" as he is belting out the hard-as-nails minimalism of "Headland". Grindvik clearly has a deeply musical streak and this is audible on the title track's mournful piano scapes and the layered textures of "Tide Us Part". Even when he locks into full-on techno mode, this influence remains audible. The hammmering kicks on "Limits Of Real" underscore warbling keys and the robust broken beats of "Shelter" house solemn melodic sequences that weave in and out of Grindvik's direct but subtle arrangements.

Review: Apron alumni Brassfoot, aka Tinto Brassalini, has been making all the right moves since his first appearance on Funkineven's label back in 2014 alongside Lord Tusk; along with a fine debut on UTTU he's committed two further 12"s to the Apron cause and slipped out some low-key cassettes with the unheralded J M S Khosah. Given his penchant for vintage electro motifs underpinning distorted percussion and wild electronics, it's no surprise to see Brassfoot has caught the cultured ear of Paul Du Lac who has duly invited the Londoner to contribute to his excellent Bio Rhythm label. At five tracks long, the Dreamstate Intercal 12" is quite the statement and the general corrosive feel of the music feels tight at home on a label that's championed the likes of Jamal Moss and Borft boss Jan Svensson.

Review: The master returns. Robert Henke presents the fourth release in the V L S I series entitled G M O, the fifth and final edition. Strap on your seat belt "Geometry System"; its full throttle bass assault faces off with clandestine sonar communications, hacking the mainframe. The meticulous rhythm programming of those beautifully harsh metallic textures on"Mcp79" is the sound of malicious code attacking the network in a brute force attack. Finally "Offline" may seem like communications have ceased but you're mislead; this detailed collage of bleeps and blips are yet more sinister sonar transmissions encoded for full secrecy.

South East Of The Mountain - (6:13) 57 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.99
Review: With the likes of Batu drawing so much attention for his new bend on techno, how about a little appreciation for what Parris is doing. For an idea of what Parris has done with a 808 bass drum check out his Idle Hands debut then revert back to this 12"s woofing "Skeletal". With some light percussion added over the top, this track demands a proper dub soundsystem. It's a similar situation on "Bloom" too, only the bass has been turned down to allow for something a little more subtle... a little. Meanwhile "South East Of The Mountain" provides an alternative rhythm track with atmospheric marimbas and other African percussion giving the production as much an exotic flavour as it does an urban touch.

Review: Centrum is Parisian producer Bambounou's second artist album on Modeselektor's label and it shows two distinct sides to his musical palette. The album begins with haunting, glitchy tracks like "Composer" and "Fire Woman", before Bambounou moves into melodic, bleep-heavy sounds courtesy of "Excluding Natalia" and "SAC". Unexpectedly, the listener is shaken out of this stupor with "Each Other", a tough, hammering rhythm, "Oez", which is less direct but also revolves around a grainy, dense rhythm track and the glitchy techno of "At The Mirror". Just in case the listener is left in any doubt about Bambounou's musical duality, the album ends with the humming bass and tough percussion of "I Ride".

Review: At a time when so many of its early contemporaries are rarely seen releasing these days, Planet Mu's 20th anniversary is even more of a cause de celebre. The powerhouse of uncompromising leftfield electronic music has pulled no punches when it comes to commemorating the time, drawing on the staggering roster including Kuedo, Remarc, Traxman, Falty DL, Machinedrum, Milanese, Vex'd, Neil Landstrumm and so very many more besides, bringing together tracks from the vaults, from forgotten times, some of which have never previously seen the light of day. With 50 tracks to delve into, this is enough of an education to school even the most learned mind.

Review: Shadowy Swedish duo SHXCXCHCXSH are back with another full length on Shifted esteemed Avian imprint, with SsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSsSs. Always the pranksters, their cryptic language pushes the threshold yet again with the LP's 15 tracks (most come in at around three minutes) taking on increasing variations of lower and upper case. Dark and challenging freeform techno that turns the usual conventions of techno on its head, featuring harsh and textural power electronics plus the blatant abuse of looping, tape delays and excessive overdrive. Deconstructed rave aesthetics drowned in field recordings and surface noise throughout: heavy!
