Review: A resident player at legendary Liverpool party spot Chibuku, there's very little Dash doesn't know about dancefloor messiness. As proved by this very neat debut on the Utah Saints Sugarbeat imprint. "Viper" ignites with a footloose breakbeat before the punchy 4/4 and fun-but-focussed bass riff kick in, both of which develop serious weight with pace. "Kick A Hole In The Speaker", meanwhile, takes a Huntemann-style one-note bass riff technique and gives it a savage polishing with distortion and grit. A very promising debut indeed.

Review: Ah, the Drumattics... bastions of the breakbeat, playboys of the party. It's been almost half a year since their last outing on the Utahs' Sugarbeat imprint, but they're back with a robust couplet of beefy mid-tempo breaks that will get butts jiggling in the freakiest of fashions. "Freaky Girls" is the cheekier workout, taking cues from the nu funk and ghetto bass scenes. "Rump Shaker" is the darker, more nocturnal affair with its spliced and diced vocal and deeper bass wobbles. Both are ace.

Review: If vocal-led, dancefloor-friendly dance music is your thing then look no further than breakbeat outfit Drumattic Twins and their latest release on Sugarbeat. The original is a euphoric slab of goodness, with uplifting synths, snapping beats and plenty of swing and swagger. Utah Saints give a guitar-strumming D&B version with sped up vocal and whirring b-line, whilst Shades Of Rhythm tease out the old skool piano chords and rave element, and Rory Lyons strips back the vocal and makes it into a straight up house remix. Herbgrinder adds a dubstep soundscape to the proceedings with fidgety drums and synths.

Review: Two solid versions of "Drop The Bomb" featuring Credit To The Nation here from Santero on the Sugarbeat imprint. It's all about the vocal version here at Juno HQ, with nasty electro-breaks synth work jostling for attention with Credit To The Nation's vocal, which should bring back some fond memories for the elder statesmen among you. Instrumental version also available if that's the way you swing!
