Pray For You (Murder He Wrote remix) - (4:54) 132 BPM
from $2.16
Review: Ahadadream recently dropped the hymn-like urban anthem Pray For You, which showcased the light and ethereal vocals of Olivia Louise and some observational MC'ing from Scrufizzer. Now we get the remixes - Tarquin delivers some killer stop-start carnival action, Jamie George opts for a deep garage vibe laced with digital pops and fizz. Finally Murder He Wrote conjures up a supremely atmospheric rework with moody synth washes over a percussive shuffle.

from $2.16
Review: With this new single Ahadadream displays a talent beyond merely inventing witty band names. "Pray For You" is an hymn-like urban anthem where the light and ethereal vocals of Olivia Louise waft above simple piano chords and restrained percussion, before giving way to some observational MCing from Scrufizzer. Coming soon to radio playlists everywhere.

Greize - (8:00) 123 BPM
from $2.16
Review: Newcomer Tom Akin makes his debut and on the excellent Four40 imprint out of Birmingham, one of the remaining UK strongholds for all things bass. "Worm" is a solid house stepper complete with an itchy percussion flex and cinematic sonics in its underbelly, but it's "Greize" that turned us on to Akin when we heard this EP. It's a slow-building, utterly stripped and lo-fi techno nugget for the early morn'. Production quality is solid, this dude will be back soon, no doubt.

Review: Having introduced himself via a remix on Gilles Peterson's Brownswood, Alex makes his first full debut on Four40. Two cuts of heady house/garage fusion, both coated in well executed vocals, if you're into the likes of Black Butter, Woz, My Nu Leng or Mak & Pasteman, you'll be all over the simple-but-effective deep bass gurgles of "No Good" and melancholy, minor key soul of "How I Feel". With a dub mix and instrumental thrown in for good measure, this is a very accomplished debut.

Freak'n U by Beacon on Four40 Cue Track
Jiggly - (5:17) Biggest-selling track on this release
from $2.16
Review: This latest cut from Four40 features Beacon on the production duties with some quintessentially hybrid bass music that spans electro, juke and UK Funky. The title track is led by a massive snare, which gets tempered by the bright and bold synths and R&B vocal hook. It should slot nicely into any number of styles, much like the more sparse Funky vibes of "When You Go". With restrained bleeps and a subtly booming sub, it's just left to the vocal looping to give a nod to the juke styles of recent times. "Jiggly" meanwhile plumps straight for the tech-house floor with a fat, driving bassline and rigid beats.

from $2.16
Review: Despite sharing its name with a Christian record label in the States, Birmingham's Four40 only really pray in one church, one with a soundsystem that boasts bone-rattling subs. Their latest signing, the mysterious Cloaka, is certainly all about the bass: this EP features bass so brutal and low it's positively subterranean. "Don't I Know You" features a low rolling bassline and eerie chants, "Booty Chatter" boasts harsh, stamping riddims and extra wobble on top, "Konkle" again centres around a hard, stamping kick but is more sparse and finally "Wuxi Riddim" is all about the voodoo beats.

from $2.16
Review: Decibel and Flowdan tore things up with "Skanks" earlier this month, and now they're back with a tasty remix package spanning all types of bass styles. Network delivers a deep and dark bassline house version, pitching Flowdan's vocals down into the murky ether, while I Killed Kenny builds on the original's frenetic style with a rave-infused UK funky bomb, something mirrored on DJ Cable's similarly furious remix. Lol Gurlz meanwhile offer a moody and atmospheric take filled with syncopated, head-nodding drums, while Toni Moretti's remix offers much the same but with trippy hi-resolution percussive tones. Amazing stuff!

Skanks (Enigma Dubz remix) - (4:39)
from $2.16
Review: It's bashment o'clock round Decibel towers judging by the sound of his new bomb, and the currently on fire Newcastle producer doesn't appear to be mellowing any time soon. It's all about the party here on "Skanks", mercilessly so, especially with the legendary grime MC Flowdan on vocal duties - there won't be a dancefloor left alive after this incendiary fusion of footwork, tropical and hysterical rave is dropped. Just in the (unlikely) case it doesn't rock your world, there are two extra mixes supplied - Hybrid Theory deliver a slower, wobble-heavy housey version, while the Enigma Dubz mix defiantly keeps the classic dubstep sound alive!

Review: Now we all know very that there's only one kind of work that's any good, and it's not the kind that finds us sullen faced on public transport every morning. Here Decibel teams up with Slick Don to reiterate this universal truth via the medium of pounding peak time ghetto-ton, coming across like Oxide & Neutrino's effervescent younger siblings in the process. The remixes continue to up the rump/bounce ratio with Hybrid Theory's wobble-heavy 4 x 4 remix being the hard to beat Goliath amongst these heroic Davids.

Drop That Ass - (4:37)
from $2.16
Review: Big, booty-shaking bass squelches that seem to seep out the walls and crisp, retro claps announce the arrival of this year's hottest house party-starter. Jacking and jerking with the arrogant strut of Birmingham's bright new stars, this release is gritty and filthy enough to satisfy the most underground of dance addicts, while keeping a severe line when it comes to on-point dancefloor etiquette for those with more clean-cut style. The even more stylish "Drop That Ass" with its perforating dancehall beat and mercenary-dark synths turn nightmarish atmosphere into something well worth staying until closing time for.

from $2.16
Review: We're still recovering from the drop that was Suckfake's recent EP on Four40, and now they follow it up with three deadly UKF leaning weapons from DJ Spookz. "Turntabala" takes the essence of dub and combines it with incisive laser bass and rolling snares, while "Rock the House" places chopped vocals and insistent stabs over deep low end. "Amen Danger" might be the pick of the bunch, with it's chopped up amen breaks combined with devastating bass blasts.

Review: Midlander James Vine, aka Enigma Dubz, deals in tough, straight up, party-rockin' beats. Now he's back following a recent split EP with Sub Antix with his own solo release and it's a banger. "Fresh" features filthy post dubstep chugging bass and a messy 2-step swing. ""What Must I Do" is all heavy wobble craziness and an infectious hands-in-the-air female vocals. Finally things end on a head-nodding, sinister vibe with the menacing electro-dub of "Without You By My Side".

Review: Grimey vibes abound on Four40 as Enigma, Screama and Trilla rep the 0121 emotions. Enigma's beats are the perfect balance of heavy presence and eerie melody while allowing enough space for Screama and Trilla to trade melodic bars with each other. The remix-list is mind bogglingly good with all flavours catered. From slinky, well-polished two-step (El-B) to haunted house trap (DJ Cable) via savage breakbeat garage (Filthy Vicars), Four40 have curated a very generous package that will suit every shade of bass addict.

Their wide range of influences is again showcased here, so we get booming, badd ass, night cruiser trap on "Red Box", deep, sumptuous and off-kilter jazzy swing step on "Runaway" and wobble-heavy feelgood piano house on EP closer, "Have You".

from $2.16
Review: Rising Leicester bass duo Everyman have already received support from the likes of Benga and Skream. This latest EP should raise their profile even higher with it's exceptionally well-produced sheen. Title track "Take The Block" is high-octane bass music pure and simple; "No Doubt" meanwhile is very retro house and certainly riffs off 90s classic "To Be Real" by Ladycop. "Player" recalls vintage R&B, but distorted out of all recognition by helium voices and stop start beats. Finally "Let It Up" is a dubby, percussion-heavy instrumental.

Review: German techno titan Frederique is back as steely confident as always. He's all about the quality, not the quantity is our Fred, so we get just two tracks. They're not just any old tracks of course: both feature sleek, tough muscular production and are tailor made for making dancefloors move. "The Wormhole" takes a nasty hoover bass riff and whisks it up with some skippy, almost techy, UKG beats. "Mainstream" meanwhile, goes deep for sultry after hours moods with a subtle garage bounce.

Review: It's been ages since we've had the pleasure of hearing any new productions from Funkystepz. Last summer was the last time the airwaves rocked to their uniquely scintillating productions, but now we have this four tracker. The sleazy late night roller "Kings Cross" kicks things off in fine style, before we get into deep agitated UKF territory on "Bump X", "Boyz In Da Hood" goes nasty with infectious claps and harsh mechanical squeals and lastly "Twister" provides a twisted on ravey piano house with added tech shuffle.

Review: Hyperdub casuals and UKG dons Funkystepz return to Four40 with two new bangers, both of them straight from the gutter and ready to be served out on the Funktion One. The title track "Pirate Material" takes a garage groove and drops a hefty load of wobble bass on top of it, along with a seriously bruising percussion swing - a certified killer! "Copyright" is more of a house churner, still twisted and peppered in the Funkystepz's usual UK flavour. Four40 have come through with yet another pair of lethal weapons, check em'!

Review: Welcome to the odd world of Pete Graham, Ill Phil & Chris Lorenzo, a collaboration of Birmingham-based producers all well-versed in the worlds of house, grime and garage. Mixing up the three to create their unique sound, this offering showcases not only their production prowess but their truly twisted styles. Banging hard but somehow still smooth and fresh, "I Love You So" is part house, part garage, part grime and part dancefloor filling monster. On the flip "Who Remembers Cassettes?" is a vintage crate delve through breaks, classic house and '80s electro, ending up with a big bouncy UKG beat. Messed up in the best way.

Review: For their latest release, the Midlands' finest, Four40, have secured a bit of an anthem courtesy of label stalwarts Pete Graham and Chris Lorenzo. Recruiting the geezerish vocal tones of another label veteran Jamie George, "Let Me Down" is an insanely catchy deep houser based around a repetitive dubby guitar lick and George's infectious naive melody. In other words, a hit. Elsewhere Nu Era go for bouncy big room wobble while JD Reid goes in the opposite delivering a mega slow T(rip) & B late night jam.

"Keep Dark" is sultry speed garage, the sparse "Conscious" veers into 4 x 4 territory and ""Show Ya" wraps things up with a warped rave organ riff and some very late night UKF grooves.

Review: Hybrid Theory returns to Four40 with his most substantial work to date, the five track Tropics EP. The title track more than lives up to its name, an infectious combination of bright UK funky synths, soca rhythms, heavy bass and tropical melody, "Top Boy" combines thick square wave bass with deep house stabs, while "Grime Alarm" is as raucous as its name suggests, switching up the energy between sections with crafty rewinds that lead into hands in the air rave moments. "Pita" strips things back with its simple combination of rattling percussion and deep subs, while closer "I Believe" takes a rolling flex and combines it with glittering keys and expert vocal manipulation.

Review: Keeping loyal to their own Four40 label, Midlands duo Hybrid Theory, return with the Mind Games EP; yet another slice of their forward-thinking, bass-heavy artillery. This time they're loaded with three powerful rounds with "Mind Games" leading the charge with its aggressively sassy and sweaty warehouse garage vibes. "0483" continues apace with some stripped back electro tinged wobble and finally the skippy bounce of "Screened" ends on tropical high. Bang!

from $2.16
Review: Such was the dancefloor decimation caused by Hybrid Theory's recent crowdpleaser King Kong Riddim, they've decided to do it all over again! "King Kong 2.0" is a souped-up accelerated version of their anthem that now manages to merge tech-house, ominous orchestration, hysterical vocal samples, 4x4 bassline grooves and hip-hop beats. Wow!

Review: Banana-bending hairy heaviness from Four40 champs Hybrid Theory: "King Kong Riddim" is a straight up dancefloor melter with its skippy kicks, trappist synth-horns and gritty bass eructs. Spattered with occasional spoken word samples, it's a simple but highly effective tool that guarantees crowd participation.

Review: Just recently, Midlands bass duo Hybrid Theory dropped their anthemic "That's What It Is". Now they're keeping the heat on with a left hook of a follow-up EP of remixes. There are four interpretations here - a grimy garage growler by Flava D, Kissy Sell Out delivers a dirty house grinder laced with a techy fizz and Grime wraps things up with a deep and low urban snarler.

Review: There's no stopping Midlands bass duo Hybrid Theory right now, what with their Four40 label putting out its first artist compilation and yet another big club anthem in the shape of "That's What It Is". What it is, is a scalpel-sharp trap-hop jam with heavy bass and undertones of grime courtesy of some spitfire MCing by Trilla. There's also some different edits and an instrumental included, with the "Heavy Radio Edit" which is anxiously sparse and riddled with the shrill delivery of Lady Leshurr.

from $2.16
Review: Don't worry, Inspector Gadget's theme tune is safe from the bootleggers for another day. Hybu's material is completely his own. An upbeat, in-your-face flavour, it's unique amongst his French contemporaries, too. Two tracks and one release in total, the title track is a bumptious, bouncy number that switches from pacey squelches to soothing, synth soul with true style. Wooing both the house and electro crowds will be no problem with this particular gadget. "Watcha Gonna Do" follows, a full throttle bottle of party with a riff so squidgy you'll want to cuddle it - this is perkier than a box of Viagra (and a million times longer lasting!) Jay Robinson completes the set with a dramatic twist; stomping dubstep with eerie rave vocals anyone?

Review: All aboard the remix express! Four40 follow up last month's b-boy two-stepper from IKK and Slick Don with four sparkling reversions. Pedro 123's re-imagination strips the original back into a plinky plonky trap attack that comes in both vocal and instrumental forms while KSH add much more of a bashy grime riddim. Then there's the obligatory VIP for added rewind pleasure. Get to the "Crux" of the matter... It's a vibes ting.

Review: With Slick Don riding roughshod, this is an unashamed party joint jacked with all the London swagger you could possibly ask for. Slick comes across like Newham Generals on just a weeny dose of helium. Spitting with a smidgeon of sing, IKK's 4/4 garage riff is the perfect bed for Don's bravado (so perfect it comes with an instrumental). Elsewhere we find tech-minded tropical ("Crossover") and stripped back bleep bashment ("HS1").

Review: Prodigal producer Jamie George may venture far and wide, but he always returns home to the ever-receptive Four40. "Searching" is an immediately infectious deep pop-step nugget surrounded by a deliciously druggy haze. Our faves of the many accompanying remixes include Albzzy's bass heavy VIP mix and Stripped Bare's very literal sparse house rework.

Review: The UK's Billy Kenny makes his debut on the always-on-point, Four40! Kenny is a pure garage wizard, with a sound that could seriously rip up the floor. "Call You Back" features one of those basslines which you can leave on loop for hours, allowing it to seduce you into its incessant rhythm, providing a tune for the late-night hours that you can mix in with just about anything. "Work" is similarly funky and loaded with bone-shaking low-end, except this time Mr.Kenny is in an even nastier mood. Fire!
