Review: Friction knows how to throw a party... Their "100" celebrations started in March and they're still going strong three months later! A chance for the label's artists and friends to stretch their skills and signatures, there's been some really exciting, subversion work throughout the series. This final piece in the puzzle is no exception; "Fourward" deliver their funkiest track to date, Karma gets all soulful, Total Science get all drifty and ethereal while Break simply reminds us why we love him. All four cuts glistening with long-lasting gold, Shogun can carry on celebrating their 100th release for as long as they like as far as we're concerned.

Review: Like Power Rangers, when Level 2 and DJ Chap combine to create their Alibi super-project there isn't a crime that can't be solved in a 1000 mile radius. Superlative and strictly designed for the dance, there's a reason Bryan Gee is so evangelistic about them as the Brazilians lay down four twisted tales that include dirge-like halftime swamp sounds ("The Hornet"), bright and breezy vocal rollers ("Fire") and all-out bass discharge ("Hideaway"). The hype is real.

Review: Fingerman's Hot Digits imprint has packed in a lot of releases over the past 12 months, as this expansive roundup of the label's second year in business proves. Featuring 27 tracks and a bonus mix by the South Coast dwelling label boss, there's naturally plenty to admire. Highlights include, but are not limited to, the rolling, head-nodding grooves of Eyeco M's "Keeping It To Myself", the killer proto-house throb of "Tonight" by Bad Barbie vs Evil Smarty, the sexy, string-drenched disco loveliness of P-Sol's "Can't You See", LTJ's trumpet-boasting funk bumper "Fat Thing", and the hard-wired, bass-heavy rework of Julia & Company's "Breakin' Down (Sugar Samba)" by Melon Bomb. It is, though, all pretty darn hot.

from $2.18
Review: Full throttle jump-up skills from Midlands duo lay the sonic smack down with two brutal workouts on Eternal Muzic: "Snake Charmer" builds around a classic piano arpeggio before dropping into a midrange bass sweep that's not dissimilar to Original Sin. "It's Not Over", meanwhile, goes more on a metallic, menacing robotic rampage with a Q&A that will be ringing through your very bones from now until Christmas 2067. Pure filth.

Review: On his previous Midnight Riot releases, Joutro Mundo has always included a number of scorching reworks of Brazilian disco and boogie faves. Now, the fast-rising producer has gone one step further, serving up an entire album's worth of humid, summery reworks of authentic Brazilian fare. While a handful have previously seen the light of day elsewhere (see "Boogie Do Central" in particular), there's plenty of previously unheard revisions to get the juices flowing. Highlights include the synth bass, jaunty horns and party vibes of "Tropical Affair", the Leroy Burgess-goes-to-Rio boogie flex of "Morena", and the densely percussive, Clavinet-driven sweatiness of "Combo Funk". Oh, and a fine rework of an obscure Brazilian cover of Paul McCartney's "Coming Up" ("Paul In Rio").

Review: Last spotted on Muzik Hertz, Midlands merker TZONE lays down his debut EP for Hazard's Radius. Each cut tickling a different side of the dance, it's the most widescreen snapshot of his abilities we've had so far... "Badman" shows off his inner skanker, "Hover Board" represents his love of squidgy bass and raw jump-up styles (and, quite possibly, his love for Back To The Future), "Money Business" is all about TZONE's understanding of tweaking bass so it's as brutal as Walter White while "Special Technique" is all about the classic jungle drums and gully sub grumbles. Authentic as it is heavy.

Review: With its 'all-out' weekend message in the lyrics and the epically brutal dual basslines, "Wavey" is proof that neither Rowney nor Toddlah are about to settle down and start living the clean wholesome lifestyle anytime soon. "Real Love" will ease you on the way back down to reality with its soul massaging subs and evocative female vocal textures. Two sides of the night covered with consummate skill.

Review: Consistency is key with Voltage: no overblown hype or fanfair or 'massive' tracks.... Just proper classically trained dancefloor drum & bass. Here we find him doing the do on his own label Rollaz with four crisp originals. Highlights include the show-stopped bass twist and vocal treatment "Bell Riddim", the techno-like dynamic and pneumatic crunch of "Pulsate" and the instant party jump-up of "Dub Tickles" penned with originator badman Blackmarket. There's a fine line between Rollaz and absolute belters....

Review: Halifax heavyweight Emperor finally unleashes the long-awaited beast that is his debut album and it's 50 shades of awesome. Rather than dish out a collection of the dark, tearing bangers he's become known for, he's licked up an all-armed hurricane of sounds and ideas; from the pixelated lift-off of "I Was" to the sweaty Upbeats drums of "Shapeshift" to the big breezy vocal drama of "Dispositions" and the rolling soul of "Thunder", this is a whole new creative level from Emperor as he plays by rules we've never heard him play by before. A proper album.

Review: Sheffield's Dr Cryptic has made a home for himself at the Chip Butty label and, if we're honest, we love what he's done with the place. The bass playa is up and knocking around with "Skippy", a UK garage track with a wobbling, moaning piece of bass fit for a low-riding dubstep tune. There's a heap of remixes of the tune: Phatworld plays with the bass and wobbles it to its very limits, Rico Tubbs goes deeper and dubbier on the percussion muscle, Vital Techniques distorts the low frequencies, and Dr Oscillator adds a little old-school flavour to the equation.

Review: Back in March, Ondule label boss Joss Moog and Sebastien "Around7" Guertau unveiled their 4th Sign project, launching with a fine collection of soul-flecked deepness. This speedy follow-up is every bit as alluring, with the French duo effortlessly floating between a variety of dancefloor moods and tempos. Contrast, for example, the smoky, mid-tempo jazz-house of "The Movement", the string-drenched, sumptuously soulful bump of "Deep Dip", and the near horizontal, slow house head-nod of closer "Lunatique". For those keen on more energetic dancefloor flavours, they've also included a pair of charged-up disco house smashers ("The Right Color", and "Hot Saussice").

from $2.18
Review: Barely half a year has passed since their long-awaited second album Timeline and Glen and Zula return with four more alluring constructs: "Stand Firm" flexes into the darker side with deft navigation from Visionobi while "Ghost Racoon" goes all-out darkside with its pneumatic hammers and tongs. For deeper experiences head for the sub-rattled "Reunion" and the sublime "Shrine". With its swooning chords and rich orchestration it's near-classical in its dynamism and weight. It's not the title track for nothing... Shrine on you crazy junglists.

Review: The latest stop on Lamont's concurrent ascendency in the world of leftfield bass prodigies is none other than 81 UK. Here the label enables him to deliver a searing two-track reminder of why he's boss in bass. "Titanic" is an apocalyptically doom-ridden ghetto joint, all sparse beats and creep FX. "Eyes Closed" on the other hand, is an intense sonic melodrama set to some seriously serpentine trap rhythms and taut orchestral flourishes.

Review: Whichever substyle he explores - from gritty, unabashed tech to melodic bliss - Nymfo has made versatility his signature. One of the few D&B artists who can appear on Renegade, Dispatch and Spearhead consecutively, his screen is one of the widest in the game. Case in point: this EP. From dreamy cloud-chowing ("Everyday Emotions", "Melting Pot") to Shogun-style MC-laced techy rollers ("Cheetah") by way of synth-led space-steppers ("Big Air"), Nymfo's repped a broad and highly accomplished spectrum once again. Genuinely something for everyone.

Review: On German producer and Aleph label founder Aera's latest release, the coalescing of influences from the past forty years of electronic music is audible. From the early electronic-style noises that warble over the bubbly acid pulse on the title track to the deeper than deep house of "Krystal Close" and the Mathew Jonson-sounding micro-trance melodies of "Keeping the Book", Running Hot is nothing if not adventurous and diverse. Innervisions also deserves praise for its choice of remixer; Steve Rachmad is not the most immediate name one would associate with the German label, but he does a fine job here, turning "Keeping the Book" into a deep, pulsing techno track, accentuating the original version's beautiful spacey-ness.

Review: Boy, it's their instalment of the This Is Night Bass series and, as always, it's a tight and severely jam-packed bag of pure bass-ridden quality. The rhythm carrying the best part of the release is one that locks into 4/4 mode, but the melodies, low frequencies and vocals contain something seriously UK about them. In fact, if you're looking for purist British house music with a garage flavour then you'v hit the right spot; it's as if these guys have tele transported back to 2000/2001, when the roots of dubstep were being laid-down from the foundations of garage and bassline. YES.

Review: South Coast bass troubadour, Distro, now finds himself back where he started - on Roska's mighty Kicks & Snares imprint. He's on his most commercial form yet, we reckon, with "Nothing To Prove" being a perky UKF sing-along featuring plenty of wobbly carnival vibes. The Roska X Marjora mix steers things into deeper, darker waters - all sublime moods and scattershot beats. Doctor Beat also steps up to the (dub) plate to deliver a heavier bassline assault for those later hours. There's also a sleek instrumental supplied for all those who don't dig the vocals. Win-win!

Review: Wonderful Times carry one carefree as they always have, and drop four magnetic disco bombs for the contemporary sort of soul DJ. In running order, we have "What You Got" by Luvless, a sublimely hummable little sun-kissed disco melter for the warm-up hours, the housier, more funk-filled bomb that is "Jazzy Manoeuvres" by Mannmademusic, the slo-mo house nodder that is "Show Me Love" by La Tuerie, and "Be Free" by VinylAddicted, a straight-up funk monster that is so groovy it doesn't even need a 4/4 beat. Wonderfulz.

Review: The man with the most inexplicable moniker ever, Mr Given Raw, is back and he's giving it tough. He normally supports KS French, but now he's been given the entire spotlight and he's making the most of it. The In Raw We Trust EP boasts four new sizzlers starting with "Wonderland Boogie Romance", which slows the Earth, Wind And Fire masterpiece down to a more sedate pace for some stoner boogie action. Elsewhere we have the Loungey Latin disco strutter "Summer At Brasil", the raw bass driven funk stomp-along "Soulfire" and the clavinet heavy P-Funk joint, "Oh Push".

Review: Lately Leeds' Deelicious has seen his loose and groovy tunes grace the likes of Sound Exhibitions and Disco Fruit. Here he rolls out five sizzling new bangers. The urgent slice of socially conscious funk, "Lonely Town Lonely Street", kicks things off, "Trust Me" incorporates housier filtered loops into the mix and the title track is celebratory slice of disco-pop with some ace bloc-rocking breaks and punk-funk bass work. Elsewhere we enter orbit with the melodramatic sci-fi boogie of "Mechanical Body" and "Change Your Mind" is an amazing example of early underground dance music reconfigured by a 21st century perspective.

Review: Oscar Mulero's other label celebrates its fifth anniversary with this mammoth compendium. For fans of the Spanish imprint's club techno there is no shortage of material to get excited about; the Lewis Fautzi remix of Exium's "Nucleoid" is a hypnotic groove par excellence, its confluence of acid and droning pulses arcing to a tantalising climax, while Christian Wunsch and Exium once again represent the tough industrial and dub-meets-noise sound of the label on "Emission Lines" and "Biolag" respectively. However, there is also a more musical, reflective side to Poelgroup's sound. In this regard, 5 Years delivers most impressively with the chilling strings of the Architectural project from Reeko as well as the Spanish producer's cinematic, break beat-led reshape of Jonas Kopp's "M31".

Review: Thoroughbred jump up from Phantom Dub Digital bossman Shrust. "Gunman" is as militant as its title suggests with a raw, insistent hook and precision positioned vocal while "Join Us" is straight out of Majistrate's book with its outrageous hook that tonally twists further and further up the paranoid scale. "Adventure" balances shade with its blissful tropical shore intro and cement melting bass texture before we climax with the ugliest cut of the bunch as "Underground" smacks of Original Sin-level muscle. Comparisons in this field don't come any bigger.

A storming vocal, SL2-level bass hookiness and organs so brash and uplifting they could raise the dead: There's no question of this cut's surefire festival slammer status. For something a little deeper jump on the Phyllis Dillon-sampling "Hanging On The Wall". Proper.

Review: Nebraska has been a busy boy of late, delivering killer material on both Mister Saturday Night and Delusions of Grandeur. Here he dons his favourite balaclava and joins Detroit Swindle's Heist. He begins with the groovy, loose and low-slung disco-house bump of "Khan's Bargain", which is also brilliantly remixed by obscure boogie specialist Tom Noble. The tempo increases dramatically on the wide-eyed deep house sprint of "The Blues", before Nebraska enhances his Balearic house credentials thanks to the blissful synthesizer arpeggio lines and swirling chords of "It Won't Be Long". The spacey, string-drenched shuffle of "Varkala" draws a fine EP to a close.

Here the debut volume of the their new 'Punks Selection' series is curated by Mafia Kiss and focuses in 'on the deeper/stripped sounding side of the label's roster'. There is a whopping 22 track featured, as well as a one-hour DJ mix. Highlights include the urgent, haunted bounce of "The Oracle" by Leda Stray, the sultry, late night breakbeats of "K2" by Aloka and the scattershot ghetto beats of "Check Me Out" by Sly One.

Review: Longstanding ragga-enthused jungle mischief-maker Jinx supersizes the EP concept on Ruffneck Ting. Ranging from classic jungle rolls and amen-shattering magic of "Wicked" to mid-'90s "Chopper"-style roll-outs ("Stick Up") via dubbed out sub-drenched steppers a la Potential Badboy ("Sticks & Stems") and absolute skank savagery ("Rebelution"), he shows off the many gully feathers in his cap with style and consistency. This is such a massive body of work, in fact, that in most people's eyes it would be considered an album not an XL-sized EP. To put it simply, you'd be crazy not to investigate this.

Review: On paper, this collaboration between veteran Balearic/disco/house fusionists Faze Action, and Zimbabwean drummer-turned-vocalist Zeke Manyika has all the makings of a humid, sun-kissed classic. Happily, "Mangwana" - a kind of late '80s Hugh Masekela Balearic afro-house jam full of punchy horns, chiming synth melodies and chanted African vocals - is every bit as alluring as you'd expect. The Waiting For The Rain-era Masekela influences are even stronger on the delicious A Vision of Panorama mix, while the Paradise '89 Dub pushes the track further towards dubbed-out New York house territory while beefing up the backing track a little. Elsewhere on the EP, you'll find two superb versions of the percussive, tropical '80s workout "Kumbengo" (including a heavy, Junodownload-only Dub), and the hazy downtempo goodness of "Chiiko".

Review: Could Om Unit's twist on Nasty Habits' 1996 classic "Shadow Boxing" be one the most crucial VIP contemporisations in recent D&B history? Arguably, yes. The rolling drums, the slight melodic twist on the iconic bassline, the sudden moments of space... Whether you know this from back in the day or it's fresh to you, this really is a literally perfect example of how to VIP an influential classic. "Something Ancient" sees Om Unit team up with Thing for a cathedral-level stepper smothered in deep breath pads and mystic textures that sits somewhere between Clarity and Tobin. Immense.

In fact, for this 2nd instalment of the festivities, we have White Material frontman Galcher Lustwerk remixed by the inimitable Jimpster, with the latter putting a more starry-eyed mechanic onto the original; For Romeau complete the A-side with a vintage-sounding remix of "Pinball" by Williams. On the flip, Roy Comanchero drops the Chicago bass over a minimal sort of percussion groove on "Hypba". Kevin Griffiths adds a little acid to the jingly 707 beat of "Satori", and completes a stellar EP from the magnetic Tsuba.

Review: 15 months on from her previous Ostgut Ton appearance - the collaborative Treasure Seeking EP with pals Steffi and Dexter, Virgina Hogl returns with a brand new EP ahead of a debut LP on the Berlin stronghold. Happily she's in fine form, as the glassy-eyed, synth propelled, deep house retro-futurism of "Funkert" proves. The extended original is joined by a tasty Dub, which bobs and weaves in all the right places, while adding a little bump to the drums. As its' title suggests, "Raverd" aims for late night dancefloor domination via sustained notes, bubbly rave riffs and more confident vocalizing from Hogl. It, too, is accompanied by a vocal-less dub, on which Virginia wisely emphasizes the spine-tingling riffs and loved-up chords.

Review: As suggested by their name, This Ain't Bristol are a German label pushing UK sounds. Maximono are a duo of Drum & Bass producers from London and Hannover who have switched to house music and their bass driven, fun loving tendencies will no doubt mark comparisons to the Dirtybird crew over the Atlantic. They've taken over A&R duties for the label here and this compilation reflects their tastes There's some surefire dancefloor artillery on here such as Maximono themselves with "Bleep", Dirtybird alumnus Worthy with the bass heavy party vibes of "Big End", the druggy and minimal main room vibes of Los Angeleno Dillon Nathaniel on "Keep On Keepin On" and Berliner Ben Mono's "You Know It's True" which just reeks of Sunday afternoon hedonism at Kater Blau.

Review: Luke Vibert has made many great records over the years, but few are quite as well crafted as his 2004 debut album under the now familiar Kerrier District alias. Inspired by a mixture of Metro Area, Black Devil Disco Club, cheap synthesizers, early New Jersey garage, Italian house and, of course, classic disco, it remains a touchstone in the development of nu-disco. This timely reissue features freshly re-mastered versions of all ten tracks from the original album, plus the six tracks which made up 2006's Kerrier District 2 12". These include the loved-up, late '80s loveliness of "Ce Porte", the 808 cowbell and vocoder laden "Disco Nasty", and a typically eccentric Ceephax remix of "Sho U Rite".

Review: Powerhouse institution Renegade Hardware continue to wind their operations up to a dewy eyed climax at the end of this year and Reflections marks the start of their final ever releases. A concept that celebrates the label's distinct futuristic, uncompromised signature while retaining its classic roots, this album manages to span 20 years deftly and authoritatively: Perez's halftime take on Future Cut, Ink's tribal steppery and NC17's tubular bass tones and classic jump-up dynamics are just three of many highlights on this album that ensures Renegade's contribution and influence on the scene will be noted right up until it closes down forever. Just two more albums to go. Sad face...
