Review: Fire in the hole! Jaydan continues his prolific cavalcade of crucialness with four more savage jams as he makes his long-overdue debut on Maji's Sweet Tooth. Big riff thunder pieces tailored for deep mix head-twisting, across the set we're kicked in the guts by the sandpaper riff on "Pagan Times", pushed into a deep hole with the anarchic atonal grit of "Snitch", our arms are ripped off as we salute too hard to the early Propaganda style "Tear It Down" and we skank ourselves to death with the ace jungle lash out "Run Da Riddim". Shots fired? Shots hired more like.

Review: Get that radar of yours and whack Dutty Bass Audio on it. A brand new jungle label from Toronto who are launching with this serious statement of V/A intent. Featuring some of the most exciting names to come through in the last few years, K Jah vamps up the force with a brutal homage to the old school, RMS lets us loose with a groaning ode to the mid 90s (with added 22nd century bass groans) and Too Greezey slaps us silly with a widescreen break and expert reverse wobble sitting obesely underneath. Other highlights include Konz' stripped back slinker "Breathe", Brockout's breezy cosmic roller "The Note" and the savage neuro finale that is Skaylz & The Junk-e's "Off The Grid"

Review: Talk about best man for the job. Charlie Break, while not Bristol by birth, represents the exciting sound and energy that still emanates from one of the UK's most exciting cities. Loose, rattling, rolling with a latent funk and jazziness - Break has consistently delivered the vibes Technimatic were celebrating with the original tune. Naturally he's done them proud with a switch in the lower end hook and a rugged set of drums. Precision reversion.

Review: Snake killing: a highly dangerous occupation practiced only by the likes of Chuck Norris, Bear Grylls, Andre The Giant (ask your dad) and stone cold vibe-firing junglists like DJ Limited... A man who's not missed a trick lately. Following releases on Serial Killaz and Biological Beats he returns to Heist's Co-Lab with a six-pack that contains some of his best tracks to date... "Kill The Snake", an absolute blinder of a riff track that mixes with everything and sticks in your head like pure gorilla glue. Other crucial cuts include the flabby wobbles of "Famous On Earth", the stripped back theatrics of, switches and guitar glitches of "Right On Time" and the classic off-beat shake down of "The Purpose". Tl,dr: Absolute murderation (of snakes and soundboys)

Review: Vital returns to Bournemouth bass HQ Unauthorised Audio with four supreme slicers. All tracks wholly focused on the bass riff, "Deadly Zone" cuts deep with rusty harmonic tones, "Heavyweight Sound" trims you down with a beautifully fat wobble on the bottom end, "Hot Of The Press" dices you to your bare bones with its blunt toxic bass while "Bruck It Up" carves you limb by limb with to the sound of a rubber ball bassline. Finally we have the stabber of the set: "Insane" where a freaky, ricochet bassline pings off the breaks and beneath a well-sculpted vocal sample. Cutty.

Review: Having let off some serious stinkers on Hybrid's Audio Addict earlier this year Agro returns to his own imprint with five more blunt-nosed scudders. Once again, it's an understated affair which hits best with its low-swung technique - more rolling than jumpy, more grumbling that shouty, it's the type of tunes you'd expect to hear Randall play at 3am. Highlights come in the form of every track but don't sleep on the elastic bass stretches and sultry vocal on "All The Time" (with Raz), the ludicrously flabby bass on the brilliantly titled "Big Food Mover" and the epic, not to mention sandpapery, collabo between Aggers, Greezey and Kumarachi "AZR". Score settled.

Played by: BURNIE
Review: Mind Of A Dragon quietly slips in another fine album here, this time through the Red Balloon Dubs imprint, and we finally have to say that this producer is underrated among the world of riding garage talents. Moreover, Keep Cracking On is a pure LP, with all its tunes working for each other rather than next to each other; subtle garage infusions grow and shrink with total balance, starting off with docile drum swings that slowly develop into jazzier, more melodic frameworks, and finally into veritable club steppers with a vintage frame of mind that still sounds fresh and unchallenged. Don't sleep!

Review: The phantom badman menace returns... Coventry vibe king Hybrid hands over the parts of last year's Jungle War track "What Else" to a host of label mates and newcomers and the results are so sick you'll need a shower once you've heard them. Those after hard-hitting early 2000s style sci-fi savagery should look no further than RMS while those in need of a heads-down soul roll-out will be pleased with Swerve's twist. Elsewhere we have Epicentre and MSdoS junglising your life inside out, Audiomission sandpapering your baby-soft face and the absolutely stinking VIP from the man himself. Proper jungle dynamite. What else is there to say?

Review: Shogun young bucks Pola and Bryson find their way back into our lives with their second EP of the year. Once again it's four tracks. Once again it's deep, restrained and covers a lot of bases. Once again you'll be hyping up crowds and wooing up your lover... "Delphic Underworld" is a heads-down hypnotiser, "Unsaid" is a soft-focus vocal cut that makes you feel all mushy inside, "Hyperborean" reveals a much darker underbelly to the UK duo with its groaning bass tones while "Mind Seasons" closes with a weave of drifting pianos and subtly sinister bass.

Review: Usually when man hits road with a VIP it goes harder, right? Not in the case of this fugly roller from a true king among junglists T>I. Here he's taken the heavily supported and highly distinctive bassline of last year's banger "The Gorgon" and pressurised it into a much more physical sub bass sensation to subtle heads-down effect. The same can be said for his take on Damage Report's "Snooper" as he switches out the in-you-face weirdness of the OG bassline and teases us with the texture over a much more dense sub twist. Basically the bigger the systems you play this on, the better they sound.

Review: See di hit man ah come! This has to be the most definitive collection of one of the most rewound jungle bangers of all time, "Hit Man" has been sampled / remixed / bootlegged and refixed more than most tunes and there's a good reason... Cutty's cult vocals were sampled and processed to perfection by Cain in the first place. Iconic, whichever era it's been re-imagined, from Benny L's insane new flex or DJ Hype's classic amen-rattler, it always bangs. There's a remix for every occasion right here. Quintessential.

Review: Riffs alive! Macky Gee flexes hard right here as "Aftershock" flips between a heavenly euphoric feel good vocal hook and one of the most infectious basslines he's ever conjured. Dig deeper into this bassline treasure chest for tin-can kicking scrappage on "Make Me Feel", tongue in cheek hedonism on "Rave To The Grave", darker techier twists on "Suspicious" and a whole load more. All stacked up with big sing-along bottom ends, this is one of Macky's biggest EPs in a very long time.

Review: The clue is in the title mate: Ruff Rollerz... Delivered by one of Manchester's most consistent and authentic jungle imprints since Sappo's Advisory. Epicentre grabs our crotch with an iced out riffer, Warhead gives us the finger with some heavily tribalized drum damage, Bou-affiliate Jamoh cooks up a low-swung waspy bassline-riddled Voltage-style shaker while newcomer Kovert Sounds juices up the rave machine and twists up the elements in quite an astonishing way. Finally Buckfast-swigging buccaneer Sl8r returns with another hardcore homage that switches so sexily into a percussive minimal drop you might need new trousers. Get on this now mate.

Review: Just in case you thought this was some type of grim afterlife, along comes super-respected soul merchant Furney confirmed, once and for all, that we are most definitely living. His eighth Soul Deep Exclusives EP in the last 12 months, the EP ranges from hazy jazz of "Elmalougalou" to the much more introspective and bitter bass of "Rolling Down Time" via the schizo drumfunk on "Blue". Each one loaded with restrained power and warm organic instrumentation, once again Furney dazzles us with timelessness.

Summer Radio (Seamus Haji Re-Loved edit) - (6:30) 120 BPM
from $1.92
Review: Having previously used the Re-Loved label as a vehicle for his own party-hearty reworks, Seamus Haji has now asked Midnight Riot regular Chewy Rubs to join in the fun. Typically, he's hit the mark, delivering a couple of booming, tooled-up edits that put the demands of the dancefloor front and centre. Opener "Dance", for example, boasts a killer groove built around a rubbery, low-slung bassline, onto which dubbed-out vocal snippets and occasionally crunchy Clavinet lines are layered. "Summer Radio", meanwhile, is given the "Chewy Dub" treatment, with the acclaimed editor turning a jangly, piano-heavy electrofunk number into a heavy chunk of disco-house loop-funk. Haji delivers a bonus version of the latter, delivering a similarly loopy workout in his classic funky house style.

Jacky Mingo - "Brothers Cup" - (5:55) 121 BPM

Review: The second volume in Toy Tonics' occasional Jockey Jams series is something of a gift to DJs. Although naturally rooted in deep house, each of the showcased tracks offers something distinctively different. So, while Felipe Gordon's "Rinogal" is an funk-fuelled house bumper built around an elastic, acid-fired synth bassline and trippy late night effects, Metropolitan Soul Museum's "Saab" is a delicate, warm-up friendly fusion of lilting synths, bubbly electronics and the kind of twinkling pianos frequently found on vintage Italian dream house records. The eclecticism continues elsewhere, too, from the Adonis-via-Rimini thrills of Jacky Mingo's wonderfully positive "Brothers Cup", to the jazzy warmth of Black Loops and analogue house bleeps of Jad's "Overpriced Kaiser Chips".

Review: If you see Fracture out and about on the disco scene please tell him he needs to go home; he's such a filthy and mischievous sonic potty mouth he's grounded indefinitely. Listen to this EP (his first since "Hype Tracks" on Exit last year) and you'll understand why... "Cold & Rain" pulls Defected diva Inaya Day to pieces and glues her back again all lopsided and upside down, "Your Time" takes you into a cave and bounces rubber ball basslines into your loins, soul and cranium, "On My Mind" takes us way over the soul speed limit then Perez comes in to finish the job with gallons of toxic bass, hammering halftime beats and a pitch-twisting, brain-shaking vocal. Naughty.

Review: If in emergency, "Break Glass". Even if you're not in an emergency, break it anyway... Mark System has turned in yet another clutch of unparalleled modern-but-rooted drum & bass constructions and emergencies are kicking off left right and centre. The title track fuses many ideas from halftime to techstep in such a liquid-yet-dramatic way, it's followed by the deeply paranoid riff-laced creeper "600k", the alien mutoid bass weird-funk of "Obnox" and the insistent synth-stabbed techno-minded "Dissolve" before "That Freestyle" brings home the techstep bacon with strong notes of alien jazz. Genuinely one of a kind; System we salute you.

Lovely One - (7:23) 121 BPM

Review: Before the world went re-edit crazy, Frico AKA DJ Friction was putting out rock-solid 12" singles of solid scalpel reworks. These days, he rarely bothers with wax, but his appetite for re-editing classics and little known cuts remains. His latest two-track offering is typically tasteful, delivering life-affirming reworks of the artist forever known as the King of Pop. Both "Everybody" and "Lovely One" are typical of Quincy Jones' productions during the disco era, with darting horn lines and sweeping orchestral movements wrapping themselves around killer grooves. Frico's edits extend the tracks in all the right places, with the producer wisely choosing to retain the familiar vocals whilst offering club-friendly arrangements. As a result, both edits sound like party anthems in waiting.

Review: It's a good time to be an Artificial Intelligence fan. Hot on the heels of their "Reprisal" EP on Headz they return to their Integral mothership for four more understated slices of golden drum & bass. "Ask Yourself" teases with shades of cut up vocal soul over a heavily textured groove and loose percussive elements while "True Colours" goes all-out dreamy with a string hook and vocal to die for. Deeper into the EP we chow for the barbed banquet of futurist soul that is "Waiting For" followed by the soothing stepper palette of "Holding Out". Truth.

Review: After an extended hiatus, Detroit Swindle returns to action for the first time since the autumn of 2016. Predictably, they're in fine form throughout. We're particularly enjoying title track "Can't Hold It", a bumping and energy-packed deep house cut smothered in swinging drum fills and what sound like jazz-funk instrumental samples. The warm, summery action continues on "Just Not Norma", a superior chunk of life-affirming disco-house deepness whose beats are pleasingly jazzy and dexterous. Arguably best of all, though, is the more heavily electronic "Tamarindus Hollandicus", where new age melodies and fizzing electronics weave in and out of a restless synth bassline and Italo-disco style percussion. Willie Burns' remix, a fusion of scattergun-techno attitude, proto house drum delays and swirling synths, is also superb.

Review: The unstoppable In:Flux Audio continues its path to glory with this raunchy six-tracker from the young Sample Junkie. He has only put out a handful of tunes thus far, but the way these bangers are sounding on the speakers means that the name Sample Junkies should be here to stay. "Aku" and "Yes Jah" kick the release off with a boisterous, mean-faced swarm of wobble bass and percussive pyrotechnics, while "Snake Charmer" manages to drop a blockade of chunky 4/4 beats into the equation, thanks to the help of Hurtdeer. There's two remixes of "Aku", the first being an extremely hardcore bit of techno-step from Hadean and the second, from Reso, a flow of nu-school d&b to life all the heads onto the dancefloor; Dave Skywalker reworks "Yes Jah" into one of the nuttiest, most audacious reinterpretations of bro-step that we've heard this year - watch out for those jungle breaks!

Review: Cosmic-minded Brazilians get busy with Razor N Tape with an artistically presented eight track collection of native edits and originals. Charming from the off-beat funk of "7 8 E 1", we're soon hammered by the steady stamps of "Botoque", massaged by the come-to-bed soul of "Formula 1" and whipped into a shamanistic frenzy by the percussion-fuelled "E Um Barato". Complete with a cheeky little 7" brother - that features the acid slapping Latin club smasher "Margarida" and the ghetto-busting funk of "Blaus" - these are the type of packages RSD was invented for. Party time.

Review: It's all going on for Cervo at the moment. Having just launched the Banana Hill label with an excellent record from Majid Bekkas (that he also did an edit for), the UK-based producer has now been snapped up by Marcel Vogel's Lumberjacks In Hell label to drop more of his worldly edit science. "On Rhythm" leads the charge with confidence on the A-side, using a bubbling, Afro-infused disco-funk source and making it lean and mean for the floor. There's a distinctly Nigerian lilt to the guitars that cluck away through "Dancing Dream", but it's accompanied by bright chiming chords and a solid beat that will stand up to any contemporary house jam. "Banku" is even more explicitly modern, although still layered up with gorgeous vocals and percussion from Africa.

Review: Keep away from the panic button! It might feel like you've been surrounded by ghosts of rollers past, you might feel like you've been hypnotised by the sinister gods of jungle but it's only the Utrah brothers and they've packing some of their best work so far... Both "Riddims" and "LowDefign" are up there with Serum and Benny L on that pranged out new groan flex, "Pathogen" is more directly trippy and sinister with its molten bassline and punchy cymbal-slapping drums while "Far" sets fire to your house and stands on the street mooning at you when you run out for safety. Ultrah sound.

Review: Just as you thought it was safe to walk the streets, Konichi & Decimal Bass crash land into your grimy little universe once again... And nothing is safe. Their largest body of work since last year's album Forever, expect nothing less than six tracks of riot material; "The Dog Knows" is a barking mosh of a jam with electrified bass and a cracking sample, "Invasion" (with Vacuum) is so tightly sprung it should come with a health warning while "Cold Killer" sees them tagging up with mandem du jour Turno for an iced out shred flex. Elsewhere "Get It" wins gold in the 'weirdest bassline of the EP' award, "If I Told You I'd Have To Kill You" buzzes and snaps with a hornets nest bassline while "Maintain" kicks down your house with a roughhouse late 90s style bassline. K9 thumbs up.

Review: Home is where the heat is: G13 rally up troops old and new for a straight up sesh of UK heaviness. Co-boss Rowney takes the lead with the savage "Still On It", setting the scene for the new breed to smash down. Bou, Leaf & Dutta go all jazzy and harmonic on "Waterfall", Niterider gets all low-swung and switchy with "Fire Emoji", Jammin brings the mystic pressure with "Marijuana", Salvage gets classic with the cymbal-crashing, bass-mashing grunter "Don't Stop" while newblood Tringy finishes on the spooked-out wobbler "Poltergeist". Stinking.

Review: Who's your daddy? Don't answer, it was a rhetorical question. We all know the answer; it's Dangerous. Back packing slaps with pals old and new, his third instalment of "Dangerous & Friends" is K.O after K.O; highlights include the classic sample and sci-fi synths of "B Wing" the creepy drama and skin-melting drop of "Hands Off" and two delightfully trippy remixes with Belgian badman Basstripper. With friends like these who needs enemies?

Review: Toulouse representing! Young Monty steps out for his debut 1985 release... And it's a bit of an occasion; he's the first artist to have their own EP on the label beyond Perez and his and Eprom's Shades project. Naturally he's delivered; "Hold Me Back" is deliciously space age and soulful, "The Underground Fable" is all about the highly-sprung steps and stark minimal shivers, "Spongy Conversation" continues the stark vocal theme over a grimy riddim that's not too far away from Commix at their finest while "The Savage Chase" takes us right down the roller rabbit hole with moody pressure and deep fog horn bass sweeps. Killer.

Review: Vienna meets Sao Paulo via London: V hook up Mainframe bossman Disazt with the unstoppable Brazilian duo Alibi and the results are rather breath taking. Two sides of a high currency, high latency, high voltage coin, "I Got You" is a purring soul-touched gem with the perfect amount of weight to keep it from floating away while "Double Troulbe" is a gruff, rasping electrified techy twister with the perfect amount of funk to keep it from being too dark. Outstanding.
