Review: After a relatively quiet 2013 release-wise Ross Tones offers up a fresh proposition for his ardent followers on regular haunt Local Action, switching up his usual Throwing Snow moniker for the spanking new pseudonym Alight. With a full four tracks to showcase this new sound on, there are definite similarities to be drawn from his more prevalent output but in the minimal atmospherics and molten bass undulations of "Darqa" there is definitely a new beast at work. The title track too takes a distinct stance with haunting Eastern vocals hovering over malevolent bass growl and a curveball drum & bass excursion in the climax of the track. Ziro is on hand for a remix of "Obelisk" that takes the crisp and polished 4/4 of the original and lays some dubby dirt down on it to create a more techno-minded beast.

Review: Having already marked himself out as a producer to keep an eye on with his EP for Deadplate early this year, Artifact moves to Local Action for another EP of swung UKG influenced techno. Two of these tracks are refined versions of tracks that have been in Local Action sets for the past few years; "Worn" combines a strong but lean rhythm with a wonky acid-tinged bassline, building up the drama with its rising strings to create a unique hybrid of techno and UKG, in the vein of Mosca's killer cuts for 3024, while "Turtle Fight" takes the acid theme full throttle with its combination of fierce squelch and rapidfire vocals. Finally, new track "Drain" combines the atmospherics and vocal trickery of early Joy Orbison with metallic, industrial percussion and warbling sub-bass.

Review: Remember Guy Gerber's seminal "Hate/Love" tune that was out on his own Supplemental Facts in the deep house hey-day? And remember the vocals on top of it? Yes, that was Dawn Richard, and she's back with her own show and tell for Local Action. Not Above that is far from house music, and instead takes more from juke, dubstep and London's genreless 'bass'. Put it this way, its pop music with a heavy electronic edge...but really heavy.

Review: After a string of releases for Numbers, the intermittently active Deadboy makes a welcome return with some plush, emotive tones for Local Action that show him to be in a thoughtful mood, not least on EP opener "White Moon Garden". Cascading, glossy synth lines are the order of the day, with a strong dose of magic and mystery woven in for good measure. "Rye Angel" meanwhile melts Burial-tones down to a hushed murmur and "Sad Sniper" equally calls out a spacious lament peppered with momentary flurries of rhythm. It's "Copwar" that shakes the EP up at the final hurdle with a more energised construction that keeps the synths intact but works a greater sense of urgency into the drum lines.

Review: The instantly palatable grime and garage of DJ Q has been satisfying bassline lovers for many a year, not least with his appearances on Local Talk. Now Shollen Quarshie follows up on the mixtape showcase he did for Unknown To The Unknown with a full length album proper, and its packed full of the plush production and catchy hooks you would expect. There's a whiff of techno about the dreamy synths that open the album, not least with the spiralling notes that hover over the trap-rave stylings of "Two Faced", but elsewhere there's a wholesome dose of sugar-coated jungle with the pop vocal stylings of Kassandra and Louise Williams. It's a diverse album with a broad appeal to those who like their beats immediate and colourful, and might just be one of the unlikeliest pop albums of the year.

from $2.19
Review: Not to be confused with the Strength Music boss, or Glasgow's infamous house producer, this DJ Q is known as Shollen Quarshie to his friends, and has been heavily associated to the UK garage sound since the early 2000's. He's finally back to grace us with some of his magic, and it's London's Local Action that picks him back up from the depths of the underground. Thankfully, he's still very much in the mood to make garage these days, except that "Rocky" contains a thick layer of UK grime wobble, something which was subtler in his past tunes. "Poison" is on the same kind of tip, but its drop contains broken vocal samples that add to that killer drop feeling in the club. Bangahs!

Review: Bassline king DJ Q lays down a cheeky 1Up: a homage to everyone's favourite spiky ring-pinching blue hedgehog, "Sonic" is a bouncy two-step/breakbeat hybrid littered with vibrant 8-bit samples from the original game. With a bassline the strength of five end-bosses, it's clear Q's having a lot of fun right here.

Review: Following their collaborative work on "Trust Again" and "Through The Night", Q and Louise Williams deliver yet another insatiable garage groove. Q's groove jacks and struts with presence. The organs pump with warmth and weight while Louise delivers her trademark emphatic vocals with panache. The result is that feeling that you've known this tune all your life even on the first listen. This is the third single from his forthcoming album, and we can't wait to hear it.

Review: Shollen Quarshie is making no bones about his intentions on this latest release for Local Action, with his formidable production sights fixed on the charts with a helping croon from Louise Williams. This is unabashed pop music for the modern era, even if it is driven by an early 90s breakbeat. The straight-up keys and synths should sit perfectly on drive time radio, while the light touches of trancey stabs are crying out for a stadium-filling remix from one of the Dutch titans. As if baiting such an occasion, the single comes packaged with an instrumental and an acapella for good measure.

Review: It's fair to there's currently nobody in the business making proper garage with the same flair that DJ Q currently does, and his new single, entitled "Trust Again", featuring the vocal talents of Brit School alumnus Louise Williams, is possibly his most classicist piece of 90s-leaning garage to date. Those who heard the producer's excellent vinyl-only track "Brandy & Coke" last year will know what to expect - strong vocals, clipped 2-step rhythms and razor-sharp production. Serious remixes are included too, withthe first remix in some time from from Karl 'Tuff Enuff' Brown, member of the old school garage outfit Tuff Jam, a bassline remix from DJ Q collaborator TS7, and a 4×4 mix from DJ Q himself.

Review: It's chart baiting garage time once again as DJ Q and Flava D link up on Local Action to turn out the kind of crossover hit that matches brains and brawn in equal measure. "PS" comes on bright and chirpy in its lead-in, all sugary synth splashes and catchy diva vocal hooks, while the drops rip into a deliciously freaky workout with alien melodic wobbles and plenty of weight bottom end. Balancing edgy underground qualities with unabashed accessibility has always been Q's game as much as Local Action's, and here the team more than deliver with a perfect slice of contemporary UKG.

Review: Local Action return to their Ginuwine and Aaliyah sampling belter from 2014, Finn's Keep Calling, with a host of remixers on board. DJ Q and Fallow tackle the lead track, with the former turning the bouncy garage heat up to 11 while the latter gets crafty with a gunshot ripping, cut-up electro-trap fusion style that should get heads all in a spin wherever it's played. Meanwhile Samename takes on "My My", turning it into a swung stomper full of pomp, ceremony and a whole lot of cheeky tones in between. Strict Face remixes "Only Boy" in a more tender fashion, making a spread out RnB bliss out from the component parts in a fine style.

Review: UK pseudo garage hotspot Local Action returns to action with a follow-up EP from the busy bass bee that is Finn. In line with the imprint's general mood, Finn delivers the goods in the form of five diverse club knockers, for all shapes and sizes. Our picks from the bunch gotta be the slithering, stop-start house piece that is "Coming 2 U" - some serious sampling chopping going on there - and the "Finn Theme", a gliding bass anthem in all senses of the word. This is for the UK heads.

Review: It's still early days for Inkke but this release for Local Action should find the emergent grime-influenced producer reaching a wider audience with his distinctive synth rich take on bass music. With six originals to choose from, this EP is a perfect primer for those wanting to get a feel for the artist, ranging from the uptempo thrust of "Thinkk Star (Club Mix)" with its 4/4 stylings through to the exotic slow-motion funk of "Paradise" featuring the soulful croon of Julia Jaban. There is diversity at every turn that points to a multitude of fates awaiting Inkke as his star rises in the multifaceted work of electronic music.

Review: Brooklyn producer Lil Jabba has already popped up on Local Action once before, and it makes sense seeing as his limber sound tips its hat to Night Slugs futurism while also being rooted firmly in the US footwork style of rhythmic delivery. It's playful stuff, from the cheeky keyboard breakdown section of "Stalka" to the madcap jazz and funk samples flitting around razor sharp construction "Dusty". "Skates" shows off Jabba's diversity with a slower, more atmospheric piece, and "Tea" takes things even further into introspection, but there's also space for faster material such as the rigid junglisms of the beat programming on "Silencer". All the way through though the EP is made consistent thanks to the glassy, beautifully realised synth lines and keen deployment of melodies.

Review: Representing the fearless creativity of a youthful mind, Lil Jabba comes bowling fresh out of Baltimore with his own curious take on the footwork fallout on this long player for Local Talk. There's a love of highly strung melodic work throughout, at times as developed as the sumptuous orchestral opus "Maven", at others as lurid and sinister as "Raiders", but whatever the weather up top the beats stay rapid and snaking. Holding down the more jarring elements of footwork, Jabba manages to coax some truly evocative, haunting ambience in the midst of such manic drum triggering which speaks volumes for his musical instinct as much as his ability to create an energetic club banger.

Review: If there's one producer who's adept at making grime and dubstep tracks sound fun as hell and deadly serious in the same breath, it must surely be Lil Jabba. After dropping his Scales LP and last year's 47 EP on Local Action, the gifted producer returns to the label with a six track salvo that swerves between moody reflection and rambunctious grin-baiting with an infectious energy. There is plenty of contemplation loaded into the searing lead lines that linger in "Grey" and "Super Hide" while "Waila" has its own jungle-meets-juke thoughts to consider, but if you want the outright fist-pumping showstopper then "Brass Tax" has exactly what you need.

Review: Things sound positively regal over at Local Action this week with the orchestral pomp and ceremony of emergent Irish producer Shriekin. Taking the rhythmic backdrop and plastic strings of grime, Jack Sheehan has whipped up some remarkably advanced tracks that positively overflow with imaginative ideas. "Cat's Eyes" in particular is a rich and slightly mad elegy of parping string hits and cheeky bass, while "Snowy Island Breaks" makes things ruffer without dimming the plush melodic touches and high definition sound. "Temple 2" shimmers and shines with twinkling arpeggios and crushing half step beats, and "Steel Ships" nudges off into more thoughtful territory without losing that starry-eyed energy.

Almost Transparent - (4:29)
from $2.19
Review: From the opening bars of opener "Blue Sleet", the influence of grime in Slackk's latest missive for the excellent Local Action is obvious - a precise matrix of thin eski synths, composed into interlocking parallelograms of luminous green, accompanied by salvos of rattling claps. "Fat City" takes a similar formula and inverts it, creating a particularly mournful instrumental with a sluggish beat, inspiring images of a rain soaked sink estate. "Almost Transparent" meanwhile, positively swims with melodic charm, and despite going heavy on the Eastern synth flutes and thin marimba stabs it has enough gravitational pull in the thick low end to keep the whole thing grounded. But the real gut punch is "90 Years", the only track that eschews any kind of melody for sheer dancefloor power - utilising industrial snares alongside some thick cylinders of laser bass that feel like they've been fired by an orbiting death ray. Fantastic stuff - and shows the trad house bass wannabes how it's done.

Review: Following a dalliance with Unknown To The Unknown in April, outspoken grime producer Slackk returns to Local Action on which he released the excellent Raw Missions EP last year. The Failed Gods EP is described by the label as delivering six tracks that cover the breadth of "ninjaman club destroyers to beatless synth pieces, with a healthy dose of weed and Twin Peaks in the mix," and easily stands as his strongest release to date; the melancholic video game vibes of "Empty Bottles", stripped-back square waves of "Algiers" and Eastern percussive tones of "Room Made Vague" all stand out as particularly brilliant. If you've not been keeping up with the recent grime resurgence, this is as good a place to start as any.

Review: There has been no shortage of bright and bold crossover styles from Slackk over the past four years, with impressive bouts for Numbers, Unknown To The Unknown and Diskotopia marking his work out in that jagged, synth-rich space alongside Rustie, Hudson Mohawke and the Night Slugs posse. Now, having spent some time getting cosy with Local Action, he offers the label his debut album and takes the chance to drop no less than sixteen new takes on his grime-infused musicality with barely a filler or interlude in sight. While the tempos and rhythms may shift, the atmosphere remains consistently in that alien space somewhere out ahead of us, part video game fantasy and part urban uncertainty.

If you missed this on vinyl, don't sleep now.

Review: Local Action is surely up there now with the cream of the crop in terms of UK labels, and what makes them stand out the most is their penchant for finding and pushing new talent. TAM is up on here this week, bursting through the place with four delightful slices of wonky deep house and synthy bass rhythms. "Esther" is a wonderful little melodic experiment, while "Fifth Of Lust" is a bonkers house sketch work with plenty a hint of garage at its core. "September's Silk" is more of a classic house joint in Chicago style, and "16.30 Sweat" pounces its boomy kick drum over sublime electro-disco chops and hard-hitting snares. Big.

Review: This debut album from London-based producer Yamaneko represents something of an adventurous move for Local Action, as he offers up some alternative stances upon which grime influences can be posited. The likes of "Slew Wave" may swagger with the appropriate level of attitude, but even in these moments a mystical energy floats behind the rude percussion. Elsewhere the beats are eschewed altogether in favour of floatation tank ambience, or at the very least pushed to the back of the pecking order to let the wistful synth styles drift to the fore. It's a diverse album held together by its plush digital sound palette, with enough facets to appeal to a whole host of different sonic explorers.
