Review: Kooked-out jazz and woozy, dreamlike effects make Pery's hip hop version of "Soul Brothas" a strangely eye-opening experience. Likewise, Ahzmatix and Tiago Pery's "The Chemistry Of Love" is a big rollin' journey through old school vibes and downtown hip hop flavours. Picking up on the liquid drum and bass community's voracious appetite for the unique, Soul Deep have hit another high with this little number. Weird, but in a good way.

Review: Brazilian newcomer Ncamargo has already marked out his sound on Soul Deep with this fresh sounding EP packed with love, light and soulful vibes. Taking a harder rolling tactic than his South American counterparts on the label, there's a rare mix of sweet soul and deep, old school bass running through each track. Offering something new to the deep roller community can be tough, but when your sound is so effortlessly heavy and beautiful at the same time, you know you're onto a winner. Be the first to recognise Ncamargo.

Review: Soul Deep's latest success story Greekboy brings his own tweaked take on rolling liquid heart-stoppers with this loaded EP. Switching styles from soulful to chopped and quirky and everything in-between, after a few releases where he was finding his feet, there's something about tracks like "Wake Up" that show he's really got it covered now. Drawing on influences from the old school and placing them against his own magical sound design, it's awesome to hear an artist striving for originality in what can often be a saturated scene. Final track "Faster" is the perfect example of this in practice, mixing playful invented sounds with Amens to create a new world sonic. All eyes on Greekboy.

Review: Jazzy, smooth and sophisticated, this Greek new schooler brings about the good feeling vibes with his take on what he feels soulful drum and bass should be. Pushing his manifesto forwards with crisp guitar and funkily strolling basslines in "Clear and Loud", there's a lot of maturity in this newcomer's sound. "I Feel Jah" takes a step back into a more loosely-vibes jungle vibe, but the rest of the EP is a tightly woven mix of tightly rolling liquid bedding under slick, instrumental sounds. Until "White Key..." that is, when all of old-school High Contrast breaks loose. Definitely one to watch.

Review: Jazzy intelligence is where it's at with Bulgarian newcomer Funkware's latest release. A fully-fledged EP has been on the cards for some time now and this little beaut has been worth the wait, offering more jazz than your average soulful release dares to share. After the jazz delights of "Musique Liquide" and "The Fugitive", "Junior Jumpin'" is a fun little number, bouncin' and rollin' over a funky bassline, with plenty of splashy breaks to keep up momentum. Final track "Three Phase Interface" takes funky bass to the next level, adding soulful keys and a fast-paced feel to those rolling rhythms. If this doesn't get you dancing, you might not have a pulse.

Review: Little is known about Jeff right at this moment - besides the fact that he's had previous on Diskool, he understands the spacious dynamics of liquid D&B and his beats are as timeless as his classic name. Four rollers deep, each one sparkling with soul, elemental highlights include the yearning vocal urgency of "Closer", the Bungle-style heavy-percussion/cosmic combo on "Recife", the jazzy, guitar-twanging bent of "Renasceca" and the soaking wet nagging LFOs on "Time".

Review: Serbian junglist Soul Connection makes it to Soul Deep's extensive roster with a selection of top grade rollers. Taking inspiration from old school grooves and the darker, minimal sounds of the underground, SC has managed to create an EP full of refreshing variations and variety of drum and bass. Clearly a fan of the masters (Photek is a clear influence in tracks like "Afterglow") he's putting his own spin on the genre and it sounds fantastic. Liquid with clout.

Review: Representing the harder edge of Soul Deep comes Berlin-based producer Marte, heavily influenced by the wobbling basslines of mid-00s dubstep and the top end percussion of such good folks like Commix and Break. On a rolling tip, "Blurred Vision" moves more fluidly, taking those influences to a more chilled place and "Different Cultures" features new Soul Deep signing Blastikz for more rolling beats with a soaring, blissed-out melody.

Review: Essex roller Vigorous is throwing some rather defiant jazz hands right here. And if the weight and space of the drums is anything to go by, there's a few cheeky middle fingers in the mix, too. Each cut on this quartet comes complete with its own quirky, hooky piano riff taken straight from a smoky bygone corner of last century. It's not hard to see why he's enjoying plays from the likes of Bukem and Technimatic. Really well executed jazz-licked soul rollers... Especially the subtle gospel ghosts on "True Love".

The formula is driving DnB beats with dubby, introspective musical top lines and vocals. Highlights include the lilting piano soul of the title track, the dark bass growler "A Million Questions" and the stunningly sublime Nina Simone cover "Wild Is The Wind".

Review: Gorgeous cinematic rollers from Soul Deep favourite, innaSelf. Starting with the dreamy "Clouds", he nails that sense of weightlessness and movement perfectly with piano repeats and a fluid, driving bassline. "Mercury Rising" is equally beautiful in it's own way, swapping atmospheric movements for a more down-to-earth breaks-driven sound. Taking on jazzy influences in the piano and vocal parts, it's a soul-forward roller with a bit of a kick. A definitely instant favourite with the Soul Deep elite.

Cool and calming, "Heaven's gate" starts the trip with funk-tinge guitar and a walking bassline straight from retro dance tracks that filled beach bars all through the 00s. "Lowrider" rounds off the release with melancholy rolling vibes, using jazzy acoustic guitar and a touch of atmospherics to set the mood off right. Perfect for chilling or adding to downtempo sets to change the pace, Rizla is swiftly becoming one to watch.

Review: Zen dub comes from the music heartland this is Glastonbury, a place not particularly known for its drum and bass heritage, but a place filled with creative types all the same. Filling vast soundscapes with influences ranging from the liquid greats to impressionist piano maestros, and even samples taken from the outside world, it's a breathless race from inspiration to inspiration. That's the lovely thing about this EP, it never stops flowing into Zen Dub's next stream of consciousness. Each track is a positive sounding roll through old and new sounds, giving a real sense of potential. It's a great EP but just imagine what this guy's going to be producing a few months/years down the line.

Review: Manchester's Altered States seem to be on a mission to punctuate the world of drum and bass with soul-cleansing epic tastefulness. It's not enough for these guys to be heavy: they want people to feel the music; Perfect for Soul Deep then who've snapped them for a beautiful two piece banger. Starting off with title track "Submerged", the pair drop into a fathoming-deep bassline that gives the whole track a huge sense of space, despite its relentless hi-hats. "Time" follows on and features the stunning vocals of Sophia Wardman, taking on the more familiar shape of a straight-up liquid roller with some addictive melodies added as an extra treat. One for the sensitive souls.

Review: There's a definite hint of the past with Treex's latest release, and that's never a bad start. "Jazz Cat" is as beboppy as you'd expect but that bassline is far too infectious to pigeonhole that way. Rolling out smooth and lush, it's a progressive little number that grows and grows. For more beefy beats, "Precious Moment" fits the bill, adding a choice bassline to junglist breaks to create a thunderous dancefloor filler. "Epic Vision" is a deep and dramatic but soulful addition, a perfect dark roller. Finally "Reversed Day" flirts with pitch and time shifting to create a soaring and beautiful track perfect for headphone listening. With all these styles rolled into one, this has got to be the bargain EP of the year best suited for a basement.

Review: With titles like this, you can normally expect to hear some future-thinking, emotional drum and bass, and Polish newcomer Rafau Etamski does not disappoint. Taking to the piano for some seriously epic keys, the title track of this stunning EP also features the heartbreaking vocals of Chantelle Rowe. Talk about dem feels. "Good Habits" picks up the mood slightly, but only after a fittingly dramatic piano-led introduction. Big, bold and full of swooping atmospherics, it's also a bit of an emotional rollercoaster. Final tune "Hand to Hand" is the most likely to grace the dancefloor, giving that deepness and some percussive bite. It's different. We like different.

With the carefree attitude of a Cafe Del Mar sunset and the beat of a beach party, "Loving Me" is a slice of summer served up just when we all need it most. "Make me Say It Again" continues on a romantic theme, proving that for every heavyweight tune out there, there's a light touch filled with breezy interludes and sweet melodies to counteract. Finally, "Keep Your Head" moves into soul territory, offering up a playback of true motown flavours mixed with meaty bass and more relaxed grooves. So smooth and chilled.

You'll be hearing his name in association with Soul Deep quite a lot this year, so get in the know.

Review: Soul Deep debutant A.K.A gets busy with three stunning originals and one jungle-wise remix, and Soul Fever is a great reminder (if needed) that less is always more. With a precision steppy riddim, dense sub and melodic jazz hook the title track runs circles around you in the same way Adam F did almost 20 years ago while A.K.A and Payback's remix adds more roots roughage to the drums. Elsewhere "Never Give Up" is a straight up jazz and bass piece, all drifty and deep and "Blessings" is more of a star-gazing roller with twinkling arpeggios and a super-loose slap-happy bassline that you can imagine Marky utilising particularly well. Feverishly good.

Taking influences from his contemporaries and from the old school in equal measure, it's on tracks like "Workin' Up" where that sound of summers gone by really punches through. Another strong release from the Soul Deep family.

Review: All fin-bearing puns aside, Fishy brings something deep and delicious to the table (sorry, we're done now) with these few cuts of luxurious rolling D&B. "I Said I Know" in particular is a standout track, pulling deep, forward-driven bass upfront, dragging with it the soulful vocals and piano with a real feeling of momentum. Showing off a more technical side in "Still Waters Run Deep", Fishy manages to create a darker sense of mystery while maintaining those trademark rolling hi-hats. For the emotional amongst us, "Forest Sunlight" is a beautiful piece of emotive D&B, played on pretty piano and given a big bassy workover. Lovely stuff.

Review: The secret to this release is smooth, chilled grooves and blessed-out melodies weaving pretty little stories inside your head. "Secret Sauce" drives on as a deep roller, taken up a step by intricate chimes and sampling, somewhat reminiscent of more ambient producers like Bonobo and Onra. "Get Jazzy" delivers on its promise with dissonant piano and skipped beats and moving on to "So Much Love" Londy gets deep and soulful. "Roots" pushes back to the early days of breaks and bassy distortion, "Soul Power" gets retro with quirky samples and production techniques and "Solitary" brings the heavyweight bass. This guy has consistently delivered this year, don't miss this.

"Jaded" continues the pace with a crisper sounding roller complete with a more classic sounding percussion section. Moving into experimental territory with cut up vocals and strings, it's refreshing and beautiful. "Out Of Sight" brings soaring strings along for the ride snatched from classic disco track and "1000 Year Promise" keeps things cool and jazzy with classic amens and slick atmospherics. "Into The Record Shop" is full of intricate touches an nice surprises - just like the real thing. If you love things out of the ordinary, grab this.

Review: Bulgarian producer Funkware has created magic for Soul Deep before, but this time he's slipped it up a gear. Adding hip hop vocals to sultry brass and a sexy rolling bassline, "Bad Etiquette" oozes sophistication. If a track could schmooze with you, this one would just about do it. "Feel Good" is exactly what it purports to be - a feelgood track so full of soul and energy it could raise the recently deceased. Jazzy organ fills the space between funky bassline and soaring strings and as it rattles along it's hard not to think that everything really is fantastic. It's seratonin in a tune - what more could you want?

Review: Who doesn't love a Soul Deep splash of instant good vibes? Bristolian jazzmaster Spective spins those sunkissed sounds through four of the finest fast-paced liquid tunes heard this year, starting with happy-go-lucky dancefloor pleaser "Warmth of Sunshine". "Mystical Beats" quickly follows suit with eastern influences and a mellower feel, stepping out and filling up with beautifully melodic samples. "Lazy Days" switches up the styles once again with an old school feel that we all know Spective loves, while "Late Night Sax" produces the goods with sexy sax and moody late night jazz.

Review: St. Petersburg-based producer Eugenics Eight has got a lot of influences in that head of his. In "Immersion into Memories" it's clear that he's singing from the Calibre songsheet of cool, creative but soulful drum and bass, but there's the hint of Brazilian flava in there too, picking up on what Soul Deep often does best. Moving through the EP there's experimentation with deeper sounds, silkier synths and techier drums, all tied together with his dream-like atmospherics and sense of dancefloor fun. There aren't enough producers around who like to put a bit of fun into their music - if liquid is your thing but you like it on the experimental side of the spectrum, this could be your buy of the year.

Review: Beautiful and otherworldly like the dazzling glare of the sun from which he took his name, Russia's Dmitry Gorbunov takes shimmering sounds and takes them off into the atmosphere. Unlike his jazzy counterparts, his brand of liquid is very much inspired by the microfunk and more technically-minded productions of his local peers Bop, Subwave and Unquote. This might go some way into explaining why each track is as unique to him - there's arguably more experimentation in Russian D&B than in any other part of the world. Switching from serene to stepper in the blink of an eye, this is incredible stuff - you need to watch this guy's steps.

Review: Tamworth's own Payback signs his Seasons EP over to Soul Deep, and we ask you, could there have been a better choice for this beautiful collection of liquid rollers? Picking out sensitive, soulful riffs within the damp thud of heavy percussion, "Winters Chill" feels muffled with snow, balanced out by the trill of twinkling chiming melodies. "Autumn Fall" is a far more percussive tune, owing to the abundance of breaks and additional percussion filling up the top end to balance out silky smooth brass. Dropping hard but remaining cool and collected, it quickly becomes a big roller with a golden centre. Moving into a sunnier climate, "Cascades In Spring" has a crispier, cleaner feel with a light, airy play on pads and synths. Finally, "Essence Of Summer" is a big, hazy summer anthem, as you'd expect, packed with the soul of Brazil. A beautiful package.

Review: Aristocrats have joined Soul Deep to give us a taste of the finer things in life. Surely we aren't worthy? First track "Pleasure & Champagne" is cheeky and sensual at the same time. Maybe it's the sampling or perhaps the understated hand claps, but there's something quite risque going on here. Add that champagne and it's a totally different experience to your regular sweatbox d&b. "Urban Banquet" comes second, stepping hard with an infectious funky bassline that'll set your head wobbling and your feet moving. A tasty little release that'll take you by surprise; we suggest you go with it.

Review: Is the beautiful city of York the first place you'd think of finding your new favourite drum & bass artist? Rethink your stereotypes of Medieval northern cities because Tokalosh has made it all the way to Soul Deep with his stunning "For The Listeners" three-track release. From the outset it's clear to see his love for production runs deep, as intricate rhythms and melodies weave together perfectly, clamping in tight with sampled lyrics in "Sick Individual". "It is what It Is" follows a more traditional liquid route with Brazilian soul and a heartbeat of pure sizzling gold. To round of the hat trick, title track "For The Listeners" features the lyrical stylings of Lego and a damn addictive bassline over a happy-go-lucky melody. One to keep an eye on for sure.

Review: Liquid vibes a la Francais... Ji Ben Gong's been building his repertoire with some serious gold of late, and these four tracks are no exception. "Deeper In My Soul" boasts beefy beats that are balanced with spirally pianos and a well-known vocal sample. His remix of Anth M's Supremes sampling "Twice" is equally stunning as he switches the original's guitar-sparkled vibe for a deeper, rolling affair. Further on we hit string-coated bliss in the form of the steppy "Heaven & Earth" and Moby-style emotion on his remix of Elka's "Journey Of Love". Deeply delectable.

Review: Kredit joins the Soul Deep crew for this beauty of a liquid release and this German sure cam pick a melody. "Reflections of Time" starts out with a soaring intro, all hands in the air and sparkling chimes. His bass does all the talking when it kicks in though, dropping to reveal hidden depths far below the shimmering surface. On the other side, Future Engineers remix "Ascending Red", a tune caught part way between a stepper and a roller - part head nodder, part hip-shaker. A gorgeous filtered synth plays out the main riff as an understated bassline pads out the low end. A real treat.

Jazzy in parts ("Soul Music"), featuring retro influences and jungle breaks in others ("untitled30") and a whole lot of soul in between, if you're a fan of more experimental liquid, get yourself a little treat and pick his up.

Review: Soul Deep's relationship with Treex develops momentum once again. "Troubled Minds" is a quintessential example of sample magic as a dusty slice of soul is cuddled and wrapped by a wonderfully warm smouldering groove. Complementing the heat, "Solstice" strips away a few layers and reveals a more naked beauty; skippy drums, spacious horns and a slower introduction to each element allows Treex to gradually build a unique dynamic that captures the imagination from the off, and never lets it go. Liquid bliss.

Review: Ohio-based but Jamaican at heart producer Londy hasn't been making beats for long, but since Soul Deep have uncovered him, you know he's already onto something special. Mixing fresh, funky melodies with deep rolling tunes and snares that just don't quit "Soul Thang" kicks off with waves of dancefloor-ready rhythms that keep on crashing down hard. "Baby" follows it up with a crisp, shimmering flourish, taking the top end and crushing it into twinking, tight sounds that resonate beautifully against that deep, solid bass end. "Caution" brings a deeper hit, with jungle break drums and more articulate melodical devices, and finally "The Streets" brings a melancholy soulfulness to the EP. Originally by Phaze Jackson, Londy's remix adds his own fresh and ready touch. Lovely stuff.

Review: Silky sounds abound from London-newcomer Lurch. Previously spotted on the likes of LDNB and DNBB, he's elevated to full EP status on Soul Deep with this stunning five-tracker. Themes of melody, soul and breezy, skippy grooves run rampant throughout as we flip from the shimmering guitar refrains of "Feel The Night" to the super-dreamy piano vapour trails on "She Glows". Further on we're turbo-charged with a pumping '70s-era Simone jam on "Days Ahead", we're driven to a frenzy with the vocal and sub power of "Love You More" and brought to a show-stopping halt with the finger-clicking, piano-stroking, vocal-crooning "Foolish Love". Each track is a genuine gem. Finally: getting left in the Lurch has become a Good Thing.

Review: A D&B producer from Mexico with a soul as sunny as his hometown, Mukiyare creates some of the most sun-drenched sounds in the business, and now this EP sets them apart as being some of the most accomplished too. Using smooth jazzy samples from live guitars, strings and bass to lay out a more natural, easygoing sound, his tunes roll out easy but don't ever let up on that essential groove needed to get crowds moving. In a duet with Brain, "1993" takes things a little funkier, with a more stepping rhythm and a big tasty bassline. A beautiful EP that's well worth a look.

Sitting back into that special blend of lounge jazz and liquid D&B, this release couldn't be more sun 'n' soul Brazilian if it tried. Tempered with sunshine and full of intricate little touches (like the little drum fills in "Stronger" or the sax in "Always Here"), nCamargo's production is stunningly on-point while managing to remain smooth and carefree. There's a fun, free sound playing here in amongst all those hard-working elements that all together creates the perfect summer soundtrack. Pick this up and get ready for the most relaxing World Cup summer of your life.

Review: Funk, soul and sexy rhythms, Serbian beatmaker Drum Force 1 brings it all to the show with "Groovy Shadows", a collection of some of his finest work to date for the ever-sterling Soul Deep label. Kicking off with two jazz-infused stormers, "Lies" gets the party started with smooth guitar licks over rolling amens, while the title track rolls and grooves, channelling summer sun through soaring strings. "All Night Long" takes things deeper, stepping hard into lush bass textures and finally the adorably-named "Little Year" brings back some of that sunny jazz in the form of warped keys, horns and a tasty hook more addictive than peanut M&Ms. You've got to love this.

Calling this jazz-influenced drum and bass would be a disservice - there's more jazz here than just a hook here and there, and J Logic's ability to meld the two genres together deserve a polite round of applause all of its own. Taking a slight detour from the jazz classics however, "Keep Yo Head Up" is a slick production combining breaks and deep, resonant bass with a touch of soul, effortlessly creating the perfect summer tune. "You & Me" takes things even further down the summer-vibes path with big bass, sweet piano and sampled strings and sunny vocal snippets. An EP of two halves well worth grabbing with both hands.

Inspired by the jungle, hardcore and breakbeat scenes of the '90s and with a penchant for the more luxurious end of the musical spectrum, this EP might have the hallmarks of a retro classic but the production quality and attention to detail is far more pleasingly polished. Lean back and enjoy.
