Review: Buxom and deep dubstep aren't terms you see together that often. Then again, Anthologic has barely scratched the surface of his career... As he gets the spotlight he deserves, perhaps we'll see more of this full bodied approach to the darker side of dubstep. As the title suggests "Strictly Dubplate" is the most shapely set piece thanks, largely, to its floral arrangement of rattling congas. The twists and drops on the bassline melody of "Blessed" are on the rather plump side, too. Refreshingly chubby.

Review: Dutch sub-magician Yikes makes his debut on Phantom Hertz with this neat two-track affair. Both numbers are cut from a similar dub cloth... Deep, alien textures, spiked slo-mo acid lasers and canyon-like grooves. "Pathway" is the more brooding of the two as an inward, paranoid bass groove loops with a sad smile. "Hollow Earth" is a tad more uplifting thanks to some deft piano touches.

Review: Finnish producer currently residing in France, Davth's quite the international playboy. Who can blame him? Dub beats that lick with such crafted depth speak such a global tongue they're a passport to any dancefloor in the world. The wonderfully titled "Befuddle" is the more rhythmic, driving of the pair with a soft pulsating bassline bouncing with each swinging kick. "Taama" plays an able swampy counterpart with a grumpier, pronounced half step and considerably more minimal make-up.

Review: Here are a few facts you didn't know about God's hands... They're covered in tattoos. They can crush steel-reinforced concrete. They can batter you in a thumb war. They've been immortalised by Forensics as a track title. Here we find them remixed in two totally different, but both equally alluring, ways. Trashbat goes in for the deep with shimmering minor chords and a woozy oozy groove while Infra locks us deep in the dungeon and throws away the key. Captivating stuff, give yourselves a hand.

Review: Phantom Hertz "Low Voltage" series has been running for several years now, so you should know what to expect... Total and utter darkness! Naturally this entry in the series is no exception as US murker Juss B makes his label debut with three piece of demonic dancefloor dynamite. "Slide" is all about the anvil-like kicks. Sure, the eerie kicks and echoed rim-shots chat a big game but deep down it's all about the heavyweight drums. "Choose" comes complete with a devilish sample from the film 300 that spooks its way across the tumultuous stark riddim. "Sequence" brings us to an end with a more percussive beat pattern. Reflective, spacious and sprung with a meaty groove, it's a great end to another great addition to Phantom Hertz ongoing series.

Review: Expect only the very best in dark dubstep riddims here from Lysergene on Phantom Hertz. "Low Voltage Vol 30" delivers a couple of heavier than thou low slung cuts, which will chill you to the core. First up is his collaborative piece with Forensics, "The Way Home" with its skulking swagger, booming sub bass and razor sharp beats which echo in the empty soundscape like ricocheting bullets. Next, Lysergene goes solo with "We Are" - another equally as unnerving piece full of experimental beats and groaning rhythms. This one shudders along in splendor - be sure to check it out.
