Review: Opening track "Orbit" with its menacing breakbeat and dark atmosphere gets things off to a nice start and there's more of the same later with "Reinforced Texture". The uplifting and soulful vibes of "1.200" could appeal to Planet E or Innervisions fans alike. There's also "Odd Soulz" with its razor sharp bassline and soaring synth leads which give way to a killer drop; peak time tech house done well. "Technicality" gets back into the breakbeat swing of things with dub delay aesthetics and a crunchy, junglised amen for good measure. But "Swathe" is the real highlight here; groovy, snarling acid backed by latin percussion on this impressive house jam.

Odd Soulz - (7:46) 125 BPM
from $1.92
Review: London's Christian Sibthorpe, known around the UK house circles as A1 Bassline, touches down on Food Music for the first time after a hefty load of EP's on labels such as Dirtybird, Gruuv and Southern Fried, and he appears in the form of a one track gun-slinger in his familiarly dirty and shuffled-out percussive flex. "Odd Soulz" takes its inspiration from different corners of the electronic spectrum, drafting in an electro bassline down below, a techno beat swing, and finishing with a fine layer of Chicago goodness for the soul. A true UK hybrid tune, and a memorable one at that.

Review: Bristol's Billy Kenny is up on our charts this week with a mighty fine appearance indeed, and a rather special one, too. This is because the Bristol kingpin steps out of his own This Ain't Bristol label, and lands firmly on Food Music with something a little more house-oriented than what we're usually used to seeing from him. "Horn Thing", for instance, although drenched in a considerably UK sort of coating, is a hard-edged house tune for peak time spinning, and the same can be said about "It's Alive", another bleep-ridden UK house chugger that'll likely appeal to the bass heads, too. "I Luh U", instead, is a different kind of beast; the majority of the tune is taken over by more cinematic sonics before dropping to break-ridden, four-to-the-floor rhythm.

Review: After releases on Nurvous, Club Sweat and Green Velvet's esteemed Relief imprint, Aussie Craig Williams is back, but now for UK imprint Food Music and with a little help from new pal Andrea Fratangelo aka Bot. He heads up the Main Course label in addition to hot tracks on the likes of Night Bass and This 'Ain't Bristol. The bouncy and bass driven electro house of "Don't Fake It" is a sure party starter.. and just wait for that drop! Second offering "Hot For You" is the real winner on here though. This brooding and tunnelling acid house journey is geared for some properly strobed out moments on late night dancefloors, we'd count on it!

Review: Shadow Child & Kry Wolf bring you Boxia, the next recruit presenting on Food Music. According to Boxia's bio, he has been around for about a year, "dealing in under the counter tracks to some of the DJ elite". Enough said! First up "Biology" is banging acid house with the most exquisite 303 squelch you'll hear ever, complete with chipmunk vocals and white noise build ups; all the good stuff! Next up, the dark tech house of "Crunch" is a more serious affair featuring a pitch shifted monologue and a sample of Inner City's "Pennies From Heaven" riding on top of a rolling, early morning groove for hedonists. Finally "Progress" pays homage to the original deep house sound of early nineties Chicago featuring warm swirling chords, a swing fuelled beat and cut up female vocals.

Review: Here's something of a surprise: an EP of fluid but forceful deep house cuts from Matthew Harvey, previously best known as one half of New Zealand based D&B outfit Concord Dawn. While there are a few nods to his junglist past throughout - think heavy basslines and clear bass music influences - there's otherwise little to suggest this is his first foray into house. There's much to admire, from the bold pianos, dusty vocal cut-ups and shuffling rhythms of "Barrow" and pleasingly dirty "Farlington", to the woozy chords, low-end wobble and skippy percussion of opener "Dirty Organs".

Review: Italian electro-pop freaks Crookers are back! They make deep house these days and don't do too badly at it. "Beautiful" features a bossa-jazz flavour over its woozy esoteric beats. "Dub Side 3" is more direct like the name would suggest on this dark and low slung journey track that will appeal to Crosstown Rebels fans. Elsewhere there's a couple more remixes of "Beautiful" which are equally impressive but for our money it's all about Kry Wolf's druggy, party-starting tech house makeover which will get the adrenalin levels peaking with its tough beat, funky bassline and trippy elements all working in harmony.

Review: Danny Howard has only put out a handful of EPs, but on Work That, he distills his energetic DJ sets into two killer cuts. The title track is an upbeat mixture of genres, with a driving techno rhythm supporting insistent vocal samples and rave stabs. Add in some cheeky electro house swagger and you've got an essential big room groove. "Holla" is cut from a similar cloth - while Howard slows down the tempo and makes the groove more swinging, the use of a lurching bass and dubbed out vocals reveals his garage/dubstep influences. This combination, aided along by rolling snares, proves to the irresistible.

Review: Theo Keating, who also makes music under The Wiseguys moniker, appears with his twisted brand of UK deep house under the Fake Blood alias on the excellent Food Music - the label itself being a regular home to some of the best up and coming talent from the Anglian corners. If you wanted house music with a distinct 'bass' edge to it then you've come to the right place, indeed, as tracks like "Music Box" flutter their 4/4 rhythm among amen breaks and right-edged basslines. "Hornets" itself is basically a Metalheadz tune circa 1997 that's been given a dosage of tranquiliser and taken down to house-techno levels.

Review: Having previously released for Numbers, Saigon Recordings and 877, Belgian combo Goldffinch are past masters at joining the dots between a myriad of bass-heavy dancefloor styles. Here, they pop up on Food Music with a trio of heavily compressed cuts seemingly inspired by the murky middle ground between revivalist garage (US and UK) and woozy European tech-house. Opener "Black Pyramid" is the most striking of the three tracks, with cut-up vocal samples and Belgian rave style stabs riding a sub-bothering bassline. "Erosion" is more fluid, with dreamy vocal hits swirling round dewy-eyed melodies and skippy US garage grooves. Finally, "Feather" is deeper, providing a modern tech-house take on classic US garage.

Review: People often ask, "what are friends for?" Well, in the case of Pete Graham, they're primarily there to make killer bass tunes with. Here we get four such collaborations, which prove that sometimes, two heads are better than one. "Who Dat" sees Graham joined by Marc Spence and Chris Lorenzo for some menacing, broken streetlight UKF material, "Wom" describes the moody wobble of this Lornezo collaboration, Mark Starr arrives to perk things up with the garage-influenced house of "Something In The Water" and "Finding Neverland" sees Thomas Graham add some seriously low boom to this booty bass jam.

Review: London's Harry Judda is sure on a roll right now! From his humble Bournemouth beginnings he's gone on to release on a who's who of labels in recent times such as Dirtybird, Food Music, Simma Black, This Aint Bristol and Of Unsound Mind. For London's Food Music he unleashes the Dying Of The Light EP where "Stone Cold" provides a dirty late night dancefloor remedy filled with wonky bass, dusty drums and druggy pitchshifted vocals. On "New Beginnings" he provides a sinister and thumping exercise in bass therapy that shows of his dubstep roots while "Drunky" hammers the message, home all guns blazing, with this bouncy, sexy lo-fi affair for the early hours.?

Review: James Jacob is a London based producer, DJ and label owner who has been in the business since late 2009. Releasing music under several well known aliases, both his original work and remixes are notable for transcending genres. On this new one here for local imprint Food Music, James gets straight into it on "Over" a tough basement jam with rough drums, grunting bass and hypnotic chords all doing groove business the right way. "One Second" is the kind of druggy and rolling main room tech house that will appeal to fans of White Isle party sounds brought to you by Gruuv, Saved or Material Series. Finally "Shifty" gets all classic house on you: this funky, stateside styled house jam was a surprise highlight and has heap of soul in it too!

from $1.92
Review: When Belgian producer Kill Frenzy first surfaced back in the late '90s, he made a name for himself as a purveyor or robust, slightly jarring electro-house. He's clearly mellowed with age, because this EP for Food Music is decidedly deep. "Errybody" is warm and woozy, all tactile beats, intoxicating chords and drawn-out builds, while the Shadow Child and Tom Flynn Remix turns it into a wonky, acid-flecked stepper. "I Like It", his collaboration with Sacha Robotti, is deeper and dreamier, with just enough garage influence to excite the Hypercolour heads. It's good, as is B-Ju's sparse, percussive, low end-heavy deep garage re-fix.

Review: UK house veteran Shadow Child (aka Dave Spoon) heads up the Food Music label with Kry Wolf. Next up for their label is the debut from newcomers Kitchen Disco. Comprised of Andy Moore and Johnny Valentine, they formed Kitchen Disco after the initial success of DJing together. They then joined forces with Groovefinder in the studio and that's apparently when the project was born. Spoon then picked up the track (together with "On Off") for the label and after playing it on Rinse FM, he remixed it too!

Review: Not content with having risen on the tides of their Sound of Sumo label's success, label bosses Kry Wolf have elected to start a new label in the form of Food Music. Debuting last year with a release from Shadow Child, the pair now take centre stage for the label's second release. Entitled The Flood, the lead track combines sharp tech-house beats with buzzsaw bass and slick vocal samples, all coated in deep strings, while "Workin Hard" takes things up a notch with its crisp flurry of claps and synth bubbles driven along by some peak-time rave piano. "Together" meanwhile combines techno and bass in equal measure with its dark, tunnelling acidic bassline and dubbed out piano chords; it's a stark contrast to Makes No Sense's remix of the track which gives it into a light UKG-inspired rework.

Review: Having previously impressed with a series of singles on their own Sound of Sumo label, Lewis Darvill and Bill Francis moved to Food Music earlier this year, releasing the Food EP to great acclaim. Here they follow it up with more shuffling, bottom-heavy house. With its pulsating sub-bass, classic US garage beats, choice samples and alien stabs, "Nightmode" is arguably the pick for peaktime plays. That said, the rush-inducing keys, cut-up vocals and cute melodies of "U Like" should also appeal to DJs who like their beats upfront and party-friendly. For those of a ravier persuasion, the Pedestrian remix of "Nightmode" should be an essential purchase.

Review: Lewis Darvill and Bill Francis are Kry Wolf, a British duo who have made their pushed their name forwards thanks to an extensive number of EP's on labels such as Sounds Of Sumo, and even an appearance on Claude Von Stroke's Dirtybird. Their latest cuts come courtesy of Food Music, who have been on fire in recent months, and they're nuthin' but a load of house tinted bangers. "Pushing Me" is a peak time monster for summer dancefloors such as Cocorico and Cavo Paradiso, while "The Feels" is bumpier and a touch more stuttering when it comes to its bass, and "Cosmic Vibes" shuts things down with a deep, sweltering low-end and minimalistic percussion slamming.

Review: Hot Bristol duo Bill Francis & Lewis Darvill are Kry Wolf. who've released previously on Sounds Of Sumo and Palms Out Sounds. My Nu Leng are another up and cming local duo who have appeared on Black Butter Records and MTA Records. If that wasn't enough, the duos also enlist the vocal talents of one Kiko Bun; an original rudeboy from London. Now you may be hinking there's too many cooks in the kitchen but you'd be sadly mistaken! This pitched down and deconstructed take on modern jungliest sounds is pure fire. Rumbling sub bass, choppy amen breaks combined with Bun's convining dub stylin' vocals are the bomb right here.

A way of showing his own roots and party passions while celebrating his peers and labelmates' finest studio creations, the mix is a great reflection of Wolf, his and Shadow Child's label and its talented roster. Highlights include Shadow Child and Friend Within's WOW-referencing "The Moon", Kry Wolf's percussion-pummelled twist on "Piano Weapon", Geoff K's floor-melting bass shaker "Dysturbed Trumpet" and NYTA's dangerously demonic vocal cut "The Call". Also included is Kry Wolf's mix that joins the dots between the many sonic shades. A great concept backed up by an immaculate collection; DNA is where it's at.

Review: Lena Cullen was once in a short-lived indie-pop duo with Maya Jane Coles called She is Danger. Now, the singer/producer/multi-instrumentalist is making a go of it as a solo artist, and here delivers her debut single for bass/deep house fusionists Food Music. "Timeless" is quietly impressive, with Cullen layering her own strong, attractive vocals over a bass-heavy groove seemingly heavily influenced by both fluid modern deep house and organ-sporting vintage US garage. A variety of Food regulars step up to provide remixes, with Kry Wolf's pleasingly wobbly and in-your-face 4am Dub just edging out Shadow Child's dreamy, UKG-influenced version in the "top rework" stakes.

Review: From Simma Black to Project Fallout, and now Food Music, Low Steppa is steadily making a name for himself in the bass game, and this new EP from the producer is testament to his skills as a fine beatsmith, and as a laterally-minded crafter of fine, sci-fi beats. "On the One" is a house tune with a distinctive UK edge in its low tones, and the same goes for "Rainy Days" and its old-school garage approach. "Gone Black" is a fine piece of soulful dance music that would make any Chicago producer proud, but it's "My Black T Shirt" that earns our deepest attention thanks to its tightly woven groove, and perfectly executed sonic hook. Crafty and recommended.

"Sling" has a kind of Hypercolour feel to it, all thumping beats, garage hustle, booming bass, delay-laden vocal samples and dreamy, post-Balearic breakdowns. Munnibrotherz remix, building their version around powerful garage grooves, sub-bothering low-end wonk and decidedly quirky vocal manipulation. "Therapy" shows a different side to the trio, all nightmarish vocal samples, spooky breakdowns and saucer-eyed tech-house rhythms. "Group Therapy", on the other hand, blends chunky deep house beats with hip-wigglin' UK Funky attitude.

Review: Despite residing in Adelaide, Australia, producer Motez Obaidi seems to have a firm grasp on what's rocking clubs this side of the world. His sound - bassy, in-your-face, cheeky and undeniably party-friendly - is steeped in UK garage, the bassy deep house of Huxley and the rubbery fluidity of hot-to-trot labels such as Hot Creations. "Ride Roof Back" - in its Club Edit form - is undeniably big, lacing pitched-down hip-hop vocal samples over a big synth bassline, skippy garage beats and gargantuan synth builds. The deeper "Take Off" isn't as instantly impressive, but makes up for that thanks to some killer drops and tasty UK Funky influences.

Review: Amsterdam-based Italian producer Nima "NT89" Tahmasebi has previously impressed with his in-your-face blends of electro and techno, with occasional forays into deeper, tech-tinged territory. Each of these sides of his personality are explored on this three-tracker for Food Music. "Purple Garden" itself is pleasingly fluid, lacing deep trance melodies and Visionquest atmospherics over a touchy-feely tech-house groove. "Subsquent", on the other hand, is bold and brassy, a pulsating, strobelit fusion of heavy analogue bass, incessant drum machine rhythms and warehouse-friendly sound effects. If that's not enough to get the tastebuds tingling, "Nowhere" takes us into deep garage territory, contrasting cut-up vocals and two-step rhythms with quick bursts of 4/4 groovery and wide-eyed deep house breakdowns.

Review: Issued on Shadow Play's label, this release from Italian producer NT89 is very much of the time. The title track flirts with the spirit and sound of bleep techno, with subsonic tones woven around a rolling groove. In a similar vein is "Royal (with Whitesquare)"; although the artist opts for a deeper approach, the same type of hypnotic rhythm applies. Soon afterwards, the release slips into more esoteric sounds; "Love Game" revolves around a stripped back, metallic rhythm and shiny synths, while "Stripe" ends the release in a similar vein - although on this occasion, a stepping groove underpin's NT89's melancholic sound scapes.

from $1.92
Review: Rinse FM resident and Food Music co-owner Shadow Child returns with a full length and boy are we excited! According to the label, the Connected LP takes inspiration from "small warehouses, basements of buildings, abandoned places" and sees the UK based producer collaborate with an all-star cast of UK house and tech-house that is truly impressive. There's a lot of quality tunes on here and many to choose from, but for our money we'd bet on his collaborations with: T Williams on the funky and swinging "Do You", his teaming up with UK house hero Ben Pearce on the deeply emotive "Nothing Ever Hurts" (feat Laurel) and with Tring's finest Huxley on the dark and slinky wobble of "Err". Let's not forget his killer remixes too: There's his take on Jaydee's legendary "Plastic Dreams" and of the classic "Papua New Guinea" by Future Sound Of London.

Review: When an EP comes with a radio edit and this many remixes, it's fair to say that the label think it has the legs to crossover into the mainstream. Certainly, this latest missive from Dave Spoon under his Shadow Child alias has the potential to be big. Think epic builds, chiming melodies, sparkling house pianos and a big, heavy bassline. Oh, and a bold vocal about the joys of Fridays. Job done. Remix-wise, most attention will be focused on the MK Medicine Dub. Full of his trademark vocal cut-ups and gargantuan pianos, you'll be hearing it everywhere over the next few months. Elsewhere, there's a soaring D&B remix from The Prototypes, a murky, acid house influenced take from Maison Sky, and a couple of solid reworks from Spoon himself.

Review: Cymbal-heavy UK garage beats? Check! Sub-bothering bassline? Check! Dreamy, oddly pitched vocal sample? Check! Sweaty, wide-eyed late night vibe? Check! Result: "23" has all the right ingredients to impress bass music heads - and those into Hypercolour-ish deep house/bass music blends. It also comes backed with a couple of notable remixes, with bass veteran Zinc providing his own typically big VIP version. In truth, it's not that much different from the original, though Zinc's build-up extension, additional wobbly noises and bass EQ'ing work bring the most out of the near-anthemic original. Kry Wolf make the most of the original's dreamy samples and beef up the bottom-end wobble on their in-your-face remix.

Review: All we really know about mysterious UK producer Ten Ven is that they have released previously on the likes of MTA Records or Noir and can really throw down some seriously wicked tech house grooves. He reappears this time for the always reliable Food Music with the Belo EP. Here they show off some wares aimed squarely at the dancefloor, such as on the druggy electro-house adrenaliser "Belo Horizonte" (which is drenched in reverb), the uplifting and soulful deep house of "Celebrate" (which has the most unbelievable breakdown you must hear) and finally "One Chance" which is probably the most DJ friendly and functional cut with subtle Afro house influences but clear comparisons to the futuristic sounds of Innervisions; and that's a great compliment!

Review: Having recently impressed with the booming Low Frequencies EP on Domino Effect, publicity-shy producer Under_Score transfers to bass-house specialists Food Music. In its' original form, "Indigo" is a heady and intoxicating bassline roller, with woozy blues vocal samples and spooky deep house electronics riding a shuffling groove and thunderous sub-bass motif. Walker & Royce push the track further towards straight-up UK garage territory on their Vocal and Dub interpretations, with the latter's darker, tougher intent guaranteeing a stronger dancefloor response. The third and final rework comes from DJ E Clyps, who adds extra garage swing to the beats while introducing a few dreamier deep house elements.

Review: Food Music continues its fine form with a heavy-loaded remix release after bomb after bomb from the likes of Coldwater and Fake Blood. The boys get together to remix a collection of tracks from a mixed pool of artists, some new and some who have already featured on the label. This is all within the bass spectrum, of course (although we hate to use that term so loosely), with seven dance-ready cuts in total. If we were to pull the gold then we'd have to lean towards Applebottom's rework of Kry Wolf's own "No Trouble" - a deranged tech-house bruiser with nutty vocal samples - and Fake Blood's remix of Vhyce's "Be The Same", a jazzy and break-ridden house lick. Top.

Review: Don't worry, "Dappy" isn't an ode or homage to N-Dubz' ratty frontman. In fact it couldn't be further from Dappy's cheesy UK grime-lite if it tried. Romping away with a resonant warbling bass and unrelenting 4/4 stomp, it's an ultimate buzz cut that doesn't sound too far away from a Dirtybird record. Remix-wise Belgian ghetto-groover Kill Frenzy pitches down the vocal sample and adds much more of a haunted flavour to the groove. Either version is dark enough to send Dappy crying to his dear old mum.

Review: Annie Mac faves Hannah Wants and Chris Lorenzo have been tipped for big things this year. Certainly, their particular brand of bass-heavy, basement-friendly tech-house is incredibly appealing, with both tracks here impressing. Lead cut "Girls" takes a no-nonsense approach, layering sparse bleep melodies and wonky vocal samples over a hissing, skipping groove and apocalyptic sub-bass. "Breathe" is similarly booming but slightly deeper, with eyes-wide-shut chords and vocal harmonies bouncing over a sturdy groove. Like its predecessor, "Breathe" also features a gargantuan speed garage bassline, which provides a sweaty counterbalance to the dreamy electronics and tactile melodies above.

Review: Bristol's favourite son Will Clarke; master of all things bouncy and bassy teams up with Bot for what could be one of 2017's favourite tunes "Techno (Not Techno)" is top pick that sits somewhere between Marc Houle's mid noughties minimal house (particularly with the druggy vocals), Curtis Jones' percolator jack and the notorious Dirtybird sound: expect to be hearing this one out a lot! Second offering "Lil' Mami" is more straight up, deep and dirty tech house that will appeal to fans of the Hot Creations sound and featuring some catchy rap vocals which will get some real hands in the air moments alongside all its other boompty elements.

Review: The title of the latest release on Shadow Child's label may cause some confusion. Penned by Food Music regular Will Clarke and Italian producer Bot, "Techno (Not Techno)" is undoubtedly a techno release. It may also take some of its inspiration from electro house - check out that murky bass - but it revolves around crashing snare rolls, a pitch-bent vocal sample derived from Dan Bell and Josh Wink and the kind of bleep and shuffle combination that developed nearly 30 years ago in Detroit and then Sheffield. If this isn't a techno release, then it's hard to know what is.
