Review: Picking up props from all and sundry in the beat scene, Eprom makes good on the promise of his many singles and drops a full-length workout for Rwina. There's a manic energy that positively leaps off his tracks, as the hype of juke drum programming meets the flat-footed funk of hip hop, while the rest of the sonic matter comes zapping in from a realm inhabited by dead Game Boys (check "Prototype") and decaying DAWs. The production is realised with devastating clarity, and even when a little space opens up (as on the excellent stalk of "Can Control") Eprom's imagination still fizzes and crackles around these tracks.

Review: Dutch label Rwina drops West Coast bass merchant Eprom's latest killer slice of minimal freakery - the simply stunning "Regis Chillbin". Based around a very lean eat indeed, Eprom fleshes out the tune with some stunning and heady arpeggio stabs, creating a Oizo/Brainfeeder-esque randomscape that's just absorbing as it is gonzoid. The peerless Machinedrum drops yet another essential remix - working respectfully with the original but adding even more samples into a descending pattern of pitch-adjusted wonkery. Quite stunning and very highly recommended.

Review: Young Dutch fella Jameszoo is guaranteed to win some awards with this new EP of his, even if it's just the 'music that sounds most like it's from another planet' award. Nothing wrong with sounding different though, and this release is all the better for it. "I You Cherrypearl" begins with sci-fi Theremins, before kicking into a cowbell and laser fest that sounds like Dr Dre crash-landed in the Congo. "Mrm Aid S" is a bizarre mix of weird percussive loops, booming bass, atonal synths and um, a squawking bird! "Doc Piper" is off kilter hip-hop, and "Psitta Riddim" is like drunk baile funk. Bonus track "Palmpolysanto" sounds like a keyboard was left under a coconut tree, its tropical nuts falling and hitting all kinds of keys in the process, even triggering a distorted bass loop!

Review: Although it might sound like a well educated way of saying 'first base', "First Threshold" is far more than a mere cop-a-feel. Quite the contrary, in fact: this goes all the way, and does some rather dirty things while it's at it. Highlights of this steamy, leftfield bass session include the sweaty techno grunts and shunts of "Cork", the wild screams of "Twin Prime" and the slower sonic cuddles of "Bones".
