Played by: DJ Hybrid
Review: It's a Bristol thing: Deep In The Jungle mainstay Audiomission rallies up the crew for four skank-packed jungle workouts. Together they lay down "Live & Let Live" and "Yeah Man" - the former hits with bouncy mid 90s jungle mischief, hurts with modern production and massages with a conscious vocal line while the latter whisks us back to the rushiest of rave meltdowns. Elsewhere Pull Up Collective go solo with the siren wailing jungle blazer "Big Up" a track that's transformed into a ragged edge amen war cry by Kartoon. Proper.

Review: The honour of curating the 44th instalment of Katakana's Edits series has fallen on Disco Funk Spinner, a much respected re-edit guy whose work has appeared on the likes of Midnight Riot, Disco Fruit and Sound Exhibitions. Here though he only manages to provide two jams, but it's quality, not quantity, right? First up we get "Night Strangers" which takes loops from Candi Staton's Bee Gees cover (Nights On Broadway) and adds an accelerated disco house tempo and subtle but funky embellishments. On the digital flip is "On Fire", a clever rework of Peggy Lee's indestructible classic, Fever. Hot stuff!

Review: It's been a decade in the business for this Hamburg institution that's spawned many a summer anthem or outright hit during its existence. To celebrate the occasion, Diynamic have launched a killer compilation featuring all the usual suspects that have played a crucial role in the development of the label thus far and they're here to assure you they're more keen than ever. Highlights on 10 Years Diynamic are not limited to: Hanseatic homeboys Kollektiv Turmstrasse with their rather mid '90s electronica sounding "Jupiter Sunrise", label mainstay Stimming with the bittersweet symphony of "Hope & Ramati", label head honcho HOSH with some adrenalised peak time tech house on "The Drumpet Show" and Norwegians Ost & Kjex with their new track "Heatwave".

Review: This is some big dog business, a new Butterz special that'll please the bass and grime crews alike. Swindle is the producer, a UK badman who has appeared on labels like Mala's Deep Medi Musik, and he's accompanied by the creme de la creme of grime vocalism. "Lemon Trees" is a fast, choppy bass swinger powered by funky synth melodies and D Double E's inimitable swagger, while UK hip-hop rapper Ghetts spills some truth over "Works Haffi Run". Flava D and JME go for a head-to-head battle on the house-driven dubstep hybrid that is "Mad Ting", and to cap it all of you got an instrumental each of "Lemon Trees" and Works Haffi Run". BAD.

Review: They just keep on coming... Zero T and Fierce are smashing out some of the most concentrated, thoroughbred drum & bass this year. But then what did you expect from two legends of this calibre? Both bringing out contrasting sides to each other (Zero T highlights Fierce's funk while Fierce encourages Zero T's darker side) each track has been a guaranteed killer. "Scatter" punches with sky-scraping drums, classic FX and a stretched MC vocal. "Inhibitor" plays the perfect foil as the wasp nest bass takes the lead role and the drums roll gently in the background. Timeless.

Review: You don't get any more NYC than Manhattan disco/deep house hero Eli Escobar who presents his debut album on Luke Solomon's Classic Music Company. Starting out with the soulful feel good opener that is the title track, there's more quality on offer on the pure disco inferno "Phreeky" featuring Hercules & Love Affair's Nomi Ruiz on vocals (who appears on several tracks throughout the albums duration) and the cheeky "Chaka Khan" which is a bouncy after-hours jam for freaks and the deep low-slung groover "Next To Me". But that's just scraping the surface. The album is full of quality grooves from start to finish, inspired by one of the Big Apple's finest talents and we highly recommend it!

Review: One of 2016's most exciting success stories in drum & bass, GLXY have truly gone from strength to strength with every release. With appearances on UKF and support from all the right soul selectors, it was only a matter of time before Spearhead snapped them up for a selection. Each cut as silky and slinky as the last, the EP is an emotional showdown that ranges from the breathy whispers and yearns of Peta Oneir on "Expressions & Impressions" to the lilting piano waves on "Remember To Forget" by way of the spine-melting humanised instrumentation on "Luminescence" and the twinkling cosmic gospel of "Seductress". Each cut justifying GLXY's ever-rapid rise up the liquid ladder.

Review: Ben Sun made his debut back in 2013, delivering a chunk of life-affirming deep house for Quintessentials' Thanks You Freaks compilation. Three years on, Delusions of Grandeur has handed him the opportunity to showcase his talents over a three-track E.P. His style, which blends elements of electronic disco, deep house and glassy-eyed Balearica, is perfectly suited to the Freerange offshoot. Particularly enjoyable is "Star Ritual", where trippy, delay-laden boogie vocal samples ride a reverb-heavy, African-influenced drum rhythm and undulating, analogue bassline. Elsewhere, shirts may be removed for the bleep-heavy nu-disco/deep house fusion of "Full Moon", while the overwhelmingly tactile "Glass Waves" is little less than a piano-heavy chunk of early Italian deep house revivalism.

Review: Oh gosh. DJ Hybrid has been bang on point with every plate he's dropped in the last two years. Now the men who've benefited from his bullets in their sets return the favour with this first volume of remixes from last year's album Mixed Origins; Callide takes us right back to early 2000s Fresh-style savagery on "It's Murder", Ray Keith polishes up his amen knuckle dusters on "Run Away" while Benny L adds a whole new level of floating charm to "Bring It Back". Deeper into the collection Livewire and Samurai Breaks take us right back to 92 with new school techniques, DJ LAB lays down some superlative subs on "Boom In 93", Schematic twist "Beyond My Control" into a fuzzy distorted grizzler while finally Section busts up the drums in his faithful twist on "Lost In The Music". Album remix packages really don't come broader or badder than this.

Review: 20 years old and still sounding centuries ahead of the game, Optical's repertoire is a lesson in D&B history and future. Celebrating his influential tenure to date, here we find Optical selecting highlights from drum & bass's most formative era. Benchmark-setting cuts such as the Metalheadz-released spiralling paranoia jam "Raging Calm", the slinky Prototype-released stepper "Moving 808s" and the alien funk odyssey "Dark Skies" on Matrix's Metro are all present and correct, as are his solo highlights from his and Ed Rush's game-changing album Wormhole. With such a rich legacy to cherry pick from, these volumes could go on for days and remain relevant for years.

Review: 2016 has been a good year for re-editor Evil Smarty. He's already put out killer material on Midnight Riot and Masterworks Music, and here pops up on Tonbe's Disco Fruit imprint for the first time. He gets down to business straight away with "Feel My Fire", a superb re-cut of the Osmonds' "I,I,I" that benefits greatly from some fresh new acid lines. "If It Feels Good" sees him in a celebratory mood (think sing-along disco funk with swinging new locked-in drums), while "Striking Back" - all elastic slap bass, dubbed-out Latin horns and disco-funk swagger - sounds tailor-made for sweaty, late night dancefloors. Finally, he ratchets the percussion up further on the hustling, T Connection style heavy disco of "Turn Me On".

Review: Guv's Dubz Audio imprint goes from the strength to strength, consistently identifying the originators in an increasingly cluttered market. "DAPVA" is the label's first v/a collection, featuring one of the label's most consistent artists (Hedex) and three label debuts from men who need no introduction. Hedex is all about the heavily coded funk in the riff, Dilate conjures up a cool subby roller with added industrial strength percussion while Ironlong brings the one-note riff hype in a similar way to Tyke or Hazard. Finally, K Motionz closes the show with some subversive drama as the build craftily teases into a hair-raising drop you'd never expect. Damagement.

Review: 39 tracks, 10 FX sounds and a full mix. This isn't any old slice of afternoon cake you might share your elderly neighbour or distant relative, this is a seven-tiered wedding cake full of every type of unhealthy, fattening ingredient you can imagine. And we're not stopping until we've chowed the lot. If you've feasted on Deekline and Solo's Jungle Cakes before then you'll already know how tasty this is; a selection of their own releases and similarly spirited cuts from the scene, all laced with dubwise, dancehall and skank-soaked soul. Highlights hang from every corner but you'd be mad not to peak at Aries & Gold's soul-flecked massage of Mr Benn, or Dominator & Logan D's brokeback bust-up "Cowboy" or Serial Killaz' savage repurposing of Freestyler's iconic "Entertainer". High calorie badness.

Review: Congratulations to Germany's Dirt Crew Recordings, which marks a century of releases with a celebratory volume of the popular Deep Love compilation series. As befits the momentous occasion, the 11 tracks on offer are all exclusive and previously unreleased. Predictably, there's plenty to enjoy, from the dusty, crackly deep house warmth of Felix Leifur's "Feels Like", and classic U.S garage swing of Ponty Mython's "New York, New York", to the sweet, jazz-flecked haziness of Harry Wolfman's "Rainbow Set", and Huerta's dreamy, glassy-eyed Balearic deep house cut, "Blvrd". Throw in fine contributions from big hitters Detroit Swindle, Nachtbraker and The Revenge, and you have an undeniably essential collection.

Review: Firing tomorrow-talent from Manchester, Solix has an exciting future ahead of him. Proof? This massive six-pack bass attack. Sitting on the funkier side of jump up, there's a mischievous charm to the young producer that's instantly distinctive; the crafty triplet on the riff and Goodfellas sample on "Funny", the playful sense of contrast on "Force" as the middy hits and guttural low-swung bass go toe-to-toe and brilliant sample use on the laser-pinging "Stabby" are three of the many highlights you need to check right here.

Review: Tik&Borrow's In:Flux Audio label has developed its strong reputation not least due to the duo's discerning ears. A new Get Fluxed comp always means more of their expertly curated selections. This time round there are 12 cuts that provide something for everyone on a bass tip. Highlights includes the buzzsaw breakbeats of T&B's own "Junction Box", the sinister afterhours garage of "Too Close" by Connerz and heady, dub-tech mayhem of Joedan's "High Times". Also an extra shout-out goes to the digi-dancehall roof-raiser "Get Funky" by King Hydra.

Review: Serbian vibe maestro Soul Connection doesn't waste time. Jazz Renegades is his second LP on Soul Deep in less than three years (third if you include his co-lab LP with Payback) and, as always, the quality is as high as the funk. Highlights include the loose double bass twangs and faraway charms of "Give Me The Feeling", the crisp percussion finishes and well-spaced (and heavily reverbed) instrumentation of "Round Midnight", the trippy filtered spiral and reflective riff technique of "Sentimental" and the mournful horn magic of "Don't Stop". That's truly the tip of the iceberg, too. Dig deep!

Review: Rayko and James Rod continue to explore their Classics Of Arrikitaun, serving up a third volume of left-of-centre disco, boogie and Balearic edits. Label boss Rayko kicks things off, first serving up a driving, P-funk era disco-rock cut-up ("Boogie Nights"), before travelling into outer space via the cosmic disco/nu-disco/psychedelic boogie fusion of "Bamboo". James Rod opts to calm things down a bit with the taut drum breaks, twinkling pianos and crotch-stirring strings of "Groove of Midnight", a Love Unlimited Orchestra rework with tasty new synths. He rounds off a fine package with the hustling groove, well-placed dub delays and sweeping strings of "Strange Games".

Review: Dr Oscillator goes way back with his pal Dr Cryptic's Chip Butty label. Here he returns to the source with a sizzling four-track mission statement, the RS Turbo EP. The title tracks kicks things off with some lively 4 x 4 and percolating bass notes, "Haunted Bungalo Riddim" meanwhile, gets more serious, taking some seriously deep wobble bass on board. Elsewhere "Roundhouse" is some attitude-heavy dubby mayhem and "415" finishes up with lean and mean fast beats, digi bleeps and quirky melodies. Fresh sounds!

Review: Total Science and DLR... Need we say any more? DLR sets the tone with his own "Thinking About Tomorrow" where a precision balanced warm tech groove carries jazz chords to unknown hypnotic pastures. "On The Edge", meanwhile, hurtles jauntily into funky town with a bassline that staggers dangerously behind the kicks creating a tripped out groove that really shouldn't work... But does. Innovative and true to the craft - Dispatch never disappoint.

Review: Hyped Kiwi combo Chaos In The CBD can seemingly do no wrong. All of their recent 12" singles have been sell-outs, with DJs lapping up their smoky, dusty take on Theo Parrish style deep house. This return to "Executive Producer" Bradley Zero's Rhythm Section International imprint is notable for near 11-minute lead cut "Invisible Spectrum", which grows slowly on a wave of organic, Afro-house percussion before introducing some spellbinding pianos and tumbling trumpet solos. It really is sublime, and undoubtedly amongst their best work to date. Elsewhere, it's business as usual, with both "Observe (Part 2)" and the hazily melodious "Significant Others" successfully exploring the softer side of dusty deep house.

Review: The cats out of the bag, the chicken's flown the coup, the horses have bolted: Dom & Roland is releasing his first album in five years. Here's the title track.... "Last Refuge Of A Scoundrel". A slightly more melodic and vocal approach than we'd usually except from Mr Angas, Robert Manos adds just the right amount of barbed soul to the searing, skin-rippling textures and octane beats below. Add more thrust to your crust with the insane "Tone Poem". With its rising guitar twang loop opening up into a rocket engine groove, this comes with a clear message: One of the original masters is back and he's not messing around. Bring on the full album!

Those looking for a more contemporary / Manchester style halftime drum arrangement should jump on Levrige's "The Legend" while Stranjah closes the show with a timeless Commixian heads-down roller "Gideon". Powerful.

Review: Rewind: 2000-2005, Teebee was laying the foundations for the premiership position he has today with an immense body of work that shock the then-predominantly UK scene to its core. Few Europeans burgled our imagination and attention like this man: everyone from Noisia to Chase & Status felt the influence of TeeBee.... And the strength of this collection reminds us how. Still stark, futuristic and diverse enough to pack powerful punches 10-15 years later, from the massive vocal soul ferocity of "Let Go" to the writhing alien space chase "Human Reptile" via the harrowed pads, brushed drums and deep dream flute of "The Path" and the elephantine groaning riff hurter "Evil Ways", these tunes document a pivotal time in both TeeBee's career and global drum & bass in general. A highly timely release essential for all age of junglists.

Exemplary remixes to the very core.

Review: Second To None Music have chosen the right name for their label. These guys should not be underestimated, and their output is among the best UK bass, garage and funky that we have heard recently. This statement compilation is simply putting them on a lot of people's radars, and getting the to know that absolutely nobody at their HQ is messing around when it comes to relaxing fresh bangers for the UK's dance floors. The music is wild and diverse, ranging from pure bassline to UK funky, and there are certainly plenty of noticeable artists and known faces here, including neb-dancehall specialist Deadbeat, Mikey B, B Squared, and Hypho. If you're into the British way of doing house, then this twist up will surely satisfy.

Review: It's a Florida funk-off at Innerground HQ this month as Marky invites Sunshine State royalty for a two-track treat. Jaybee continues his rich vein of form with one of his hookiest jams to date; jazzy keys, dubby reverbs and precision breaks create the perfect bed for a velvet soul vocal. Random Movement follows with a similarly touching jam. A tight weave of dreamy instrumentation woozily waves across the mix as stern bass tones stretch sporadically, giving the sensuous floating textures real gravitas. In other words, this is dope.

Review: Wise words from Dread MC, even wiser beats from Bristol's Notion & Young H. Chunky 4x4 garage with strong house tendencies thrown into the mix, "Money & Drugs" is an all-out dancefloor riot with catchy vocals, a deadly second drop and enough energy to charge a whole fleet of electric cars. For added screwface appeal jump on Killjoy's Birmingham-sounding remix where the bassline is twisted up just a few additional notches for added mischief. Blurry.

Review: It would be fair to say that Holm CPU's Fotspor, a 1981 blue-eyed soul cut featured on the band's one and only album, .Login, is little-known outside of its' native Norway. In a bid to change that, Todd Terje has assembled a crack team of remixers to drag it kicking and screaming into the 21st century. The man himself delivers a pair of reworks: a confident Disco Remix that subtly beefs up the shuffling, dewy-eyed original, and a brilliant, Idjut Boys style Disco Dub (think heavy percussion, space echo, and a greater role for the original bassline). Bjorn Torske successfully takes a similar approach on his blazed dub disco reinterpretation, while Rune Lindbeak somehow turns it into a throbbing chunk of synth-heavy weirdo house.

There's also two killer remixes at hand; first up is Funkonomics with a rendition which goes for a more stripped and '80s sound with synth funk bass, 808 hi-hats and vocoded vocals. Finally DJ Love's remix is definitely the party starter on here, with its hip-hop inspired block rocking' beats.

With a slight tech edge to the jumpy riff, there's a different sense of energy and tone at play here... And one that you could see this working across the board. Blast off.

Review: Irish techno hero Phil Kieran on Hot Creations? You better believe it! The man presents "Make A Change", a funky, bass driven party anthem with sexy pop vocals and one totally mad cowbell attack! There's then several remixes, but for our money it's definitely San Francisco acid retrovert Matrixxman who really delivers the goods on both counts. Firstly, his main remix is a tunnelling techno trip with the most psyched out 303 sounds you'll hear this year. Next his "Warehouse remix" goes down the darker industrial techno route; no doubt inspired by his appearances at Berghain, this one's totally fierce!

Review: New York scalpel fiend Le Smooth first popped up on Rebel Hearts back in June 2016. Le Smooth Edits V2 is the man or woman of mystery's third EP for the label, and contains a trio of head nodding, slo-mo jams. Arguably the most impressive of the lot is "Love Affair", a gorgeously sweet and breezy rework that's blessed with all manner of glistening guitar passages, eyes-closed vocal harmonies and twinkling electric piano solos. That said, the 99 BPM disco-funk shuffle of "Used Me" - all winding trumpet solos and undulating, bass-heavy grooves - is also rather impressive, while "The Rain" delivers the kind of super-smooth, Jheri curl-sporting chunk of '80s soul goodness that should prove popular with boogie DJs.

Beautiful.

Review: Mr Given Raw's dedication to the re-edit cause is admirable. This year alone, he's already released four EPs of reworks, and contributed tracks to countless other releases. Happily, the Funk Talk EP is one of his strongest collections of cuts yet. It begins with the sweaty party atmosphere, cowbell-heavy percussion and notably elastic slap bass of "Le Freak Theme", and ends with the hazy, laidback shuffle of "One Groove", which boasts a notable trumpet solo and some seriously sleazy sax breaks. In between, you'll find the sweet vocals, clipped guitars and breezy disco-funk grooves of "Get Down", and the flute-laden, filter-heavy bump of "Talk Funky".
