Review: Jeepers creepers Simula's on the strong stuff again. Seriously...Take one listen to the textures on "Jester" and tell us that's the work of a sane mind. Strange, innovative and unique, it's just one of the six twisted sizzlers on parade here: the rifle-snipping laser love of "Gunfire", the sinewy croaks and 1.21 giggawatt power of the bass on "Trigger Happy" and the pure venom rust of "Swamped" are just a few of the many highlights. Strong enough to turn an intro into an extro, Simula doesn't mess around.

Third Eye (feat Harry Shotta) - (5:18) 175 BPM
from $1.85
Review: Manchester's North Base is normally found on labels like Shogun Audio and Audioporn, while Turno can usually be found on Low Down Deep or Sweet Tooth. Here though, these mighty titans collide on the Viper Music label. The results are typically explosive. A one-track release, "Third Eye" is a single epic that compensates for like, four of other producer's cuts. Beginning with moody synth work and an ominous rap from Harry Shotta, all mayhem arrives at 1:28 when the fierce metallic bassline and stop/start steppy beats blow up. Dancefloor chaos (in a good way).

Tracker - (3:36) 180 BPM
from $1.85
Review: Purveyors of fine DnB since 1996, this Essex outfit (Ian Wait, Martin Blackman, Matt North) don't mess about. Here we have a new two-track joint (literally if you see the cover) on Low Down Deep Recordings. Short and sweet and to the point, this single is all about fast fun. "Thrill Seekers" is a proper jump up jam, with dancehall bass melodies, scattershot breaks and spacey effects. "Tracker' is a filthier beast altogether, with sub-troubling wobbly bass barks, speedy drums and some effective vocals samples.

Review: Sometimes you have to look back to look forward. Sometimes you have to look forward to look back. Sometimes you just have to live in the now. Whichever temporal situation you find yourself in, know one thing; Ray Keith has been donning jungle and drum & bass since day one with his mighty and hugely influential Dread imprint and his army of aliases (UFO, Renegade, Terrorist, Dark Soldier, London's Most Wanted, Babylon 5, the list goes on) Here, like the generous D&B Santa he truly is (yes, we are saluting his awesome white beard) he's bringing everyone up to speed with 28 cuts that range every Dread era from here to tomorrow. Serum's VIP-primed soul slammer "Feel For You", Bladerunner's ghostly groaner "Spartan Law" by way of the immense collection from the big man himself, this is an immaculate lesson in jungle with enough upfront exclusives for the biggest completist head. No junglist should be without it.

Saturn's Return - (5:54) 120 BPM
from $1.85
Review: Since forming the Bermuda band last year, Aussie adventurer Harvey Sutherland has delivered a string of loose, oven-hot singles that effortlessly combine the best of boogie, soul, jazz-funk and Beatdown style deep house. With Bermuda providing live drums, keys, guitar and bass, Expectations sees Sutherland continue this fine run of form. It's a mini album chocked full of sparkling, sun-kissed cuts that defy simple categorization. For example, "Coast 2 Coast" expertly fuses a deep house aesthetic with elements of P-funk and jazz-funk, while the deep and spacey "Expectations" and "Spiders" - the latter also blessed with sublime strings - feel more horizontal and Balearic in tone. The strings return on the Metro Area-ish brilliance of "Saturn's Return", which may well be the set's most beguiling moment.

Review: Formed ten whole years ago, this Hertfordshire trio (David Wilson, Sammy Stabile and Adam Smart) have paid their dues with their exceptionally slick take on DnB eventually winning fans including Zane Lowe, DJ Friction, MistaJam, Annie Nightingale and even Ellie Goulding! It's all lead up to this, however, their debut album, Under The Blue. Featuring 14 thrill-packed excursions, with highlights including the heart-warming anthem "Sins" (featuring the sweet tones of Charli Brix), the soulful mysteries of "Echoes" and the warm elegance of "Closer". High end beats.

Review: Following their most prominent and active year to date, Sub-Woofah kick off a new year of releases with a brand new jungle-focused series "Jungle Xplorers". Serious shots are being fired from the off; label boss and leading lady Euphonique kicks off with big Buju-biting damager "Big Man Don't Cry", Omega kicks up with an awesome warbling bass rattler while Erbman kicks out with a horn-tooting floor-shattering roller. Deeper again SynthForce & DJ Ransome get twisted on a Mind Vortex-style bass freak-out and Sl8r chops, pops and double drops with the stuttering, glitched-out Think break led stepper. Long may Sub-Woofah's explorations continue...

Don't Say It - (4:30) 175 BPM
from $1.85
Review: A veteran of the Cre8 DnB Radio show, G13 label boss Rowney likes to drop messy dancefloor bombs usually with his pal Toddlah in tow, and here's no different. The original "Wavey" dropped last May, now nearly a year later it's back for the rewind in big VIP sty-lee. If you thought that the first version was fierce, then wait til you hear their own VIP rework - where incisive, mangled bass notes stab over cheeky amen breaks, lairy vocals and there's even a blissed out ravey breakdown too. Bonus cut, "Don't' Say It" keeps the aggy vibes going with skippier beats and pitched basslines. Total mayhem!

Review: Murderation station number one for all junglist pugilists, Deep In The Jungle drop a brand new package and the clue's in the title: Sound Killerz. Soundclash Sessions' Demented Frequency rips up with a balls-out shredder laden with classic sample, Toronto's Hungry T cooks up a strong brew that sits somewhere between BC and Dreadzone and RMS hits up with a strong fix of pure dub jungle with heady FC and dubby textures. Finally Galvatron slaps upside your face with the gulliest cut of the set. All shattered drums and turbo skanks, this will blindside the darkest of floors.

from $1.85
Review: It's been a while since we last enjoyed the straight-up ruffage styles of Liz-E but the wait's been worth it... And it's come with a Trigga-sized stamp of Shadow Demon approval. Press play and hear why; "Ducks & Ladders" lives up to its quirky name with a sinewy bass riff, chop-slapping wooden block hits and an energy that will crunch in any mix scenario. "Nightwalker" takes more of a techier trip with Dimension style sweepers and pneumatic drums that could pummel a truck. Serious business.

Review: Sometimes it pays to be a label boss, like for example here, on this latest Bomb Strikes comp where head honcho Mooqee has decided to hand himself the reigns. Manning the decks for nearly an hour, he whips up a frenzy of party breaks delirium over the course of 24 tracks. The tracks are supplied individually too, with highlights including the tropical trap-house of "Ladies Look Pretty" by Basement Freaks, the furious electro-bass mash-up "Get Got (VIP mix)" by Nick Thayer & A Skillz and the strompingly retro electro-funk of "How We Do This" by Tom Booze.

Review: Fresh from denting Southpoint's discography earlier this month, Arkwright returns with four new deep bruisers on Wheel & Deal. It's business from the very beginning as "Bludclart" develops with a really natural rolling pace while "Black Mesa" leans things out with vast moments of dubspace, sudden flurries of atmospheres and some crazily stretched bass textures and "Homeward" applies more of a hip-hop/beatsy approach with its vocal cuts and latent funk in the rhythm. Finally "Fat Stacks" kicks its slo-mo heels with a warped sub vibe that really lives up its name. Watch out for those trumpets bruh.

Review: For those that are in the unknown, TQD is made up of Royal T, bassline queen Flava D and the iconic DJ Q. For reference, that ain't Qu from NYC; this dude is from Scotland, he's been a legend since the 90s, and has been a monumental pillar of the house scene ever since. UKG is the duo's latest LP for the entrepreneurial Butterz label, and it's an honest, direct vision of the enlarged UK bass movement from their point of view. This sublime selection of killers spans the full circle and makes absolutely no excuses for itself; the gear is tough, floor-minded and charged by a hefty load of bass. Grime, garage and house are mashed up good and propah. Like they should be. Dopeness...

from $1.85
Review: Three years on from their last full-length excursion - the fine Borough 2 Borough on Delusions of Grandeur - Craig Smith and The Revenge return with their third 6th Borough Project album. Predictably, it's a fine set, with the duo tweaking their now familiar blueprint - think sample heavy, Balearic-minded deep house built around killer grooves and impeccable production - to guarantee a slightly more eclectic listening experience. So, while there are moments of locked-in dancefloor hypnotism - see "The Weight" and acid-gospel thump of "Tainted Dub" - they're accompanied by trips into wide-eyed, loved-up two-step territory (brilliant closer "Back Where It All Began"), seductive, synth-heavy dreaminess (Paul Joseph hook-up "Find Your Rhythm"), intoxicating downtempo chuggers ("Someday"), and much more besides.

Review: Danger by name, dangerous by sound: the rising Belgian brute dents the Digital Terror discography with four more bruising steppers. Collabo-wise "Turbulence" sees him teaming up with Nightfang for a laser-shooting riot act while "Empty Space" sees him barking at the moon with Kanine with some really pranged out bass groans. Solo-wise "About You" gets sexy on the vocal element yet militant on the guttural, spiked-out bass tones and "Extinction" is a mammoth of a track, stampeding with a harmonic bass riff and a relentless beats. Warrior level: dinosaur.

Review: RDG's Circle Vision creeps up from behind and surprises us with their first V/A EP. Satisfaction levels remain fully flexed as the whole collection is a shoes-off, brain-blown and hair-raised affair throughout: Causa bends minds with a really tripped out bass drone and drum arrangement, Taiko gets all snarly, slimy and similarly illusionary with weirded-out reverse textures and resampled. Deeper again Dark Tantrums devil up the dance with tightly coiled tension while the bossman shoots us to the stars with the spacious space-bound sub stepper "Galaxy Run". Visionary to infinity...

Spitting Image (Jack Patterns Reinterpretation) - (5:44) 97 BPM
from $1.85
Review: Permanent Vacation boss Benjaimin Frohlich is back. The man in Munich now presents the remixes of his fab 2016 release Rude Movements and gets an all-star cast to lend their deft hand at a remix. First up is the imitable Lauer; king of all things neon-lit and retro who delivers the goods (as always) with his rendition of "Amos", while fellow Frankfurter Shan stays true to the classic house aesthetic on his deep late night groove: "Holloway" is injected with spooky analogue synth leads, chunky analogue arpeggios and rusty rhythms with the good ol' clap on the kick for good measure. On the flip, it's all about the sludgy and tape saturated "Spitting Image" reinterpreted Jack Pattern (actually a Swiss trio, would you believe) where their slow motion EBM mutation calls to mind the work of Slugbug or L/F/D/M. Wicked!

Review: Trustworthy source of killer jumpy jungle for some time now, Ruffneck Ting affiliate K Jah is jamming out some crucial vibers on Natty Dub right here. Not just a clever pun in the title, "All Rhodes Lead Here" flips between a heavenly Rhodes hook and a straight-to-business Serum-style waspy bass groove. "Destination" comes from the Warhead school of thought with its shifting bass sweep and insistent and distinctive percussion, "Heavy Hitter" has an A-Sides-style bounce and funk to it while "Get Out Of My Life" climaxes on an all-out badboy jungle brock-out. Serious business - join K Jah's on the rhode to victory.

Review: Producers Marten Roberto and Nikolay Danev made their collaborative debut last summer, delivering a fine chunk of R&B and electrofunk-influenced house via the Mr Moon label. Here they join forces once more, this time on Yam Who's ISM imprint. Title track "Alive" is a more intoxicating, early morning concoction that their previous effort, with dubbed-out horn lines, wild Hammond organs and a wearily soulful vocal riding a heavy dub disco groove. It's really rather good, and comes accompanied by a cowbell-heavy, piano-sporting peak-time rework by the previously mentioned Yam Who. As if that's not enough to get the juices flowing, they've also included the swirling, stab-heavy, soul-flecked deep house bounce of "Everybody Loves Disco".

Review: We're this early into 2017 and Furney is already breaking out the top gear. We had no doubts as to his productivity or, for that matter, then man's abilities to churn out high quality d&b, but we are most pleasantly surprised by this new load of killers for Soul Deep Exclusives. The opening "I Don't Really Know If I Know You" is a rugged, electrifying stepper for some proper build-up, while "Seaside Suicide" goes much deeper into the jazzier strains of modern jungle. "Storm Damage" takes a step back into the early 90s thanks to a quick-firing artillery of vintage amens, and "Troubled Times Ahead Of Me" enters the liquid domain via some sublime drum meandering and evocative background synth work.

Review: Disco edit meister Badboe, recently made all our Christmases come at once by releasing a full extended play single, Ghetto Funk Testament. Here however, he's returned to his old ways by teasing us with just one new track. But what a track it is! "Under Your Spell" is a raucous party breaks jam features a strutting Go-Go beat and retro Fresh Prince-style rap from MC Shureshock. On remix duties, Phibes adds some edgier metallic bass, DR Packer opts for a soft and bouncy shuffle, the DiscObeta DoOva is pure daisy age retro hip-hop and Trotter goes for big room beat fun.

Review: Emerging last year with a bite worse than his bark, rising UK D&B doggo Kanine has buried the game like a favourite bone, whipping up support from the likes of Andy C, Noisia, TC, Guv and many more in his wake. This Young Guns debut proves why...Big in hooks, heavy in weight, crisp in dynamic, his toxic fusion sits well across any peaktime board. Highlights include the harmonic riff devilry and Duskee's dark micmanship on "Warface", the hair-singeing spikiness of "Detonate" and the rampant fast-lane build of "Shapeshift". Who's a good boy?

Review: Dream work makes the Team work... Asbo damaged 2016 hard with their diligent digging homage to seminal jungle architects Bizzy B and Pugwash with a slew of revamps, repurposes, refixes and VIPs. Bringing the whole project to a head comes this exclusive bundle that brings all 23 of the cuts together for the all completists. With some of the biggest names in jungle on board (Saxxon, Bladerunner, DJ Hybrid, Voltage, Gold Dubs, Aries and loads more) it's a precision celebration of old and new... From Saxxon's insanely heavy shake up "Public Enemy" to Voltage & Malachai's head-melting drum science on "Sweetie" to straight up classics such as the 96 version of instant vibe-out "Walk & Skank", this really is a beautiful piece of (team) work.

You'll meet a tall dark gully stranger who talks with a toxic bassline tongue ("Bulletproof"), you'll find inner peace through squelchy bass mischief ("Ego Trippers") and experience great fortune through elasticated low end of stuttering snares ("Absorbed") Later in the month you'll feel more energetic thanks to the hench D*Minds or Mampi style riff circa 2002 ("Pimpin") before concluding the month in blissed and blessy state of zen thanks to dusty chords and a sense-blurring drop ("1210 Technique") Thanks for choosing Junodownload horoscopes, see you next month.

Incredible news for the mandem who love a gully riff. "Jazz Hands" puckers up with more of a classical smooch thanks its majestic swooning piano intro before going all-out sloppy snog with its butt-grunting bass tones on the drop. Two killer tracks loaded with contrast... These are hard to beat.

Review: The simply titles Art of Tones collection gathers together some of Ludovic Llorca's numerous contributions to the ever-expanding catalogue of Fred Everything and Mike Fresco's Lazy Days Recordings label. It boasts a range of original productions - the old school house bounce of "The Right Moment", the Italian dream house revivalism of "Elephants", the tech-tinged deep house soul of "Unstopped", and so on - plus a cluster of remixes by likeminded producers (a fine rework by The Revenge of "Unstopped", and a sparkling, Balearic deep house rub of "Elephants" by Fred Everything), and even a forgotten remix by Llorca himself (his bumping, string-drenched dub of Tortured Soul's "You Found A Way"). Predictably, it's an accomplished and entertaining selection, full of melodious, club-ready treats.

Thelem also plays a crucial role on the trapped out gangbanger "Strawberry Cough" and the minimal, gun-loading paranoia session "Squeeze Off". Shots fired.

Review: After years of killer cuts on Fokuz and Celsius, longstanding Austrian soul seekers Roy Green & Protone make their Spearhead debut with four on-point rollers and a selection of well-welcomed collaborations... "The Healer" leads with a breezy, roomy chiming aesthetic that fools you into the idea you're dreaming before "Why Don't You" kicks you hard in the wake stakes with its rolling fretless bass and lingering pianos. "Carpaccio Funk" continues the real bass feel, this time with a loose-stringed double bass chatting away under low key trumpets and a classic break that has SG's stamp all over it. Finally "Arrivee" shuffles in a sweet closure. Spacious and restrained it's the type of track that fits in everywhere and never leaves your playlist.

Review: Fresh from the runaway success of his Yussef Kamaal project with Yussef Dayes, Henry Wu returns to Eglo Records for the first time since 2015. While it's jazzy broken beat opener "Deep In The Mudd" - co-produced by Hardhouse Banton - that's naturally getting most attention, there's plenty to get excited about elsewhere on the EP. Check, for example, the hissing jazz of "Boards & Skins", Kaidi Tatham's deep, sparkling and effortlessly soulful re-make of "Just Negotiate", and the ultra-deep, Rhodes-laden bliss of "Reflections", a beat-less treat. Also worth checking is the EP's other Hardhouse Banton hook-up, "Century", which charges off on a high-tempo, mutant P-funk tip.

"You Get Lonely" plays the perfect foil with a big soul vocal loop and gliding instrumentation that's only going to sound more beautiful as the warmer months commence. Stunning.

Review: Roman Flugel has been making electronic music for about a quarter of a century, but as Black Acid demonstrates, his productions show no sign of getting stale. "Too Hot To Sleep" is the big dance floor cut here; centring on a jittery, shaky minimal house groove and a sub-bass that's inspired by 2-step's darkest excesses, it's an unforgettable, individualistic track. "Troubled Mind" is slower and more abstract, but provides a neat segue into the title track. There, Flugel brings together many of his influences, including electro drums, minimal house and the melodies of IDM. "Work & TV" features one further surprise, with Flugel reverting to the minimal sounds of "Sleep", this time without the foreboding London bass.

Teaming up with long-time conspirator Pacso for the first two tunes we're slapped silly by the 70s car chase wah wah guitars of "Honey Monster" and buzzed around a series of dirty warehouse floors on the classic bassline-focused "909". Going solo for the second half of the game, "Pull Up Riddem" is a dancehall stepper that drops into a game-changing reverse bassline while "Playing Games" builds with an almost Orbital-style synthy intro before kicking us in the nether regions with its warm but deadly hook.

Review: A regular face at the High R8 estate, Hoogs returns with two highly charged slabs of bassline pressure. Dark in tone, rampant in energy, serious in sentiment, "Entertainment Licence" commentates on the sad state of club closures with a ruff, dog bark distortion bass riff. "Rise From The Ashes" takes everything you know about Hoogs and amplifies it by 20. One of the gnarliest yet totally controlled basslines ever, there's a bullish poetry to the demolition this will cause. Alarmingly heavy.

Review: With releases from the likes of Hot Cakes Bass and Punks already under his belt, ascending bass star Hypho is on a roll. Having settled at the mighty 877 towers of late, here we he shares his latest with Squane. There are four originals here that really stretch the boundaries of bass. "Way Beyond Boundaries" fuses rat-tat-rat drums with acidic 303 squelches, "Neurological Senses" features eccentric arpeggios and kitchen sink percussion and the gentle "Hope" is pure bliss. Squane delivers the cool urban techno hybrid "Bog" (remixed by Hypho) and he returns the favour by reworking Hope into a ghetto-fuelled banger.
