Review: Having made a few rumbles with his own free download campaign, Drooka steps over to the well-respected Iron Shirt brand for his debut EP. "Rood" is as spacious as it gets; tripped out and cavernous, you'll lose yourself within seconds of pressing play. "Grail" is a really interesting composition thanks to its clattering drums that peep over the edge of chaos without fully diving in. "Bandulu" and "Amun" both take us back to the darkest corner of the dungeon by way of aquatic, liquid bass squiggles and squelches. Intriguing, deep and well anchored, you'd be rood not check this out...

Played by: FatKidOnFire, GAZE ILL
Review: Cue Line co-founder and all-round Danish dub demon Gaze Ill steps up to Iron Shirt for a four-pack of momentous darkness. The first thing that strikes you about the title track is the tightly sprung subby kicks that play the consummate bouncy ball beneath heavy pressure pads, creating a natural groove with carefully placed minimal elements. Deeper again we hit "Detached" where an array of bass textures await; from the more bulbous bubbles to nastier tears and sneers, they ooze from the speakers while a solid drum arrangement ploughs through the sad atmospherics. Elsewhere "Superior" tells a tale of cavernous dynamics as the elastic bass twists itself in every direction. Finally we hit "Saturate": Perhaps the most dancefloor tuned of the set, this more than lives up to its name. Just crank up your sub and listen to that low-end.

from $1.93
Review: Iron Shirt introduces us to brand new producer Steven Lorenz. Ensuring his entrance is felt by anyone who's so much as looked at a speaker once in their lifetime, "Dune" is a driving slab of low-end paranoia. Controlled by a palpitating bedrock bass that hums rigidly, rising on the fills, we're presented with an array of percussive elements that fly across the stereoscope with a wry sense of unpredictability. As far as entry tracks go, this is right up there. Remix-wise Tallan adds a broader, more isolating sense of space, Outbound twist the vibe to focus on a purring metallic bass tone while Morrison take us right back to the dungeon with a slimy, pensive cut that's entrenched in deep dub rudiments. Awesome.

Played by: Konsida
Review: Last spotted on Mishva's "Gaia" EP last October, "Civilization" is a purring, tribal dub workout with just a smidgeon of techno temper thrown in. Here we find it twisted in four different ways... Tallan softens the growls and adds a nagging stabbing hook, Warsa takes us on a much more spacious trip with echoed out rimshots and cosmic synth wafts, Native gets trippy on the percussion arrangements while Darj serves up a deep digi dub riddim with a slow, smouldering stomp.

Rainfade - (5:13) 140 BPM
from $1.93
Review: Organic New Zealand vibes abound as the country's well-established dubstep label turn to local lads Morrison for two uncompromising lessons in depth and texture. "Terra" is built up around one rich, warm synth stab that pushes down on a tight bed of heavily breathing FX and spacious drum dynamics. "Rainfade" is deeper again with far away synth shimmers, liquid riddim techniques and distant pads that weep mournfully in the background. Both are absolutely stunning.

Moonlight - (5:09) 140 BPM
from $1.93
Review: It's a UK via New Zealand affair as Kiwi label Iron Shirt commission Londoner Native for four breath-takingly deep moments in dub. Hitting the abyss button on his bass machine and gluing it down throughout, we're treated to the following: complex percussion-heavy and elephantine sub bass ("Anaconda"), dreamy vocal garage bliss ("Reborn"), spacious, clicky contemplation ("Memories") and 23rd century space funk ("Moonlight"). Big.

Review: Did you know Press's full name is actually Pressed For Time? Well it is and it's because he's so talented and in demand he barely has any time for himself. This is no bad thing. Especially not when he's conjuring up next-level space bass jams like this... "Archon" is a shuddering tech juggernaut with pummelling double-up riddims and a lolloping sub message that surges with precision dominance. "Enslaved" is a much darker, moody moment: all breathy atmospherics, slimy sonics and woozy halfsteps, it's the perfect counter to the uncompromising heaviness of "Archon". Just Press play.

Lock It Down - (4:46) 140 BPM
from $1.93
Review: Dub master Split likes to take his time, preferring to concentrate on richly textured slow burners than quick fix gimmicks. Here we get three totemic beasts, all boasting his trademark full and tough finish. "Rockaz" is a throbbing dub-hop headnodder, "Land Of Origins" features stoned wobbles of bass and tropical synth noises before "Lock It Down" hammers it down with plenty of menace, pent up anxiety and bare beatbox action.

Review: The word 'haunted' is used far too often when it comes to cold, chilling, eerie dubstep like this. But this release actually is haunted. Well, a bloke down the pub told us three ghosts got into Tallan's computer as he mixed this mighty four-tracker down and you can hear them crying amongst the icy pads and sparse, reverberating rhythms. Mind you, the same guy told us he had a hover board. And he didn't. So it's probably nonsense. Whatever - each of these heavy head-nodders pays homage to traditional dub techniques where real intricacies are paid to each element as they warp and morph from classic to future dub textures. Scarily good.

Things To Come - (5:01) 140 BPM
from $1.93
Review: Thirteen: Unlucky for some - but not for anyone who picks up on these thick, rich subby flavours. Humming with metallic, low-end menace "3.13am" is a one-way ticket to a dungeon that's coated in sonic slime. Remix-wise The Illuminated adds some techno sensibility to the rhythm, all double kicks and insistent snares ricocheting off the cavernous walls. Elsewhere we find Thirteen throwing down some seriously angular bass funk ("Enigma") and getting deeper again by way of a heavily processed snare and spooked out atmospheres ("Things To Come").

Eagle - (5:44) 136 BPM
from $1.93
Review: Smoggy sonics from the heart of Rajasthan; Vain makes his debut on trusted depth source Iron Shirt. "Sentimental" is as cloying as its name suggests; dense fog and heat-tugging chord changes thrust through the mist with the help of a funky, almost trap-informed kick arrangement. "Eagle" is a more stripped back affair where Vain's Indian signature is felt heavily in the percussive patterns, providing a warm groove that belies the icy pads. A consummate debut, check Vain's glory today.

Review: New Zealand sub selectionists Iron Shirt come correct with another floor-melting compendium of forward-thinking dubstep creations. Delivered three years after their debut collection, this set unites the label's most familiar faces with brand new family members as we poke, prod and provoke the darkest corners of bass music's underbelly. From the swampy lollops and soaring vocals of Arkwright's "Avalon" to Tallan's synth-struck, star-gazing "See Them" to the abstract drum structure and mesmerising sound design of Mute's "Predator", each track is testament to Iron Shirt's curatorial strengths and future-focused vision.
