Disco Nights - (6:04) 118 BPM
from $2.48
Review: It would be fair to say that Yam Who's Midnight Riot imprint is good at spotting talent on smaller labels and giving them a bit of a push. The latest to receive this treatment is Tonbe (AKA Serbian producer Milos Djordjevic). The Big Game Fishing EP is arguably his strongest EP to date, and sees him going deeper into disco production whilst retaining his usual house-friendly dancefloor sensibility. Opener "Original Tool" - all rousing horns, clipped guitars, smothering organs and chunky beats - is particularly potent. The deep house-boogie fusion "Money Maker" is tasty, too, while "Explore Your Fantasy" expertly layers parping horns and funk guitars over a slap bass-propelled groove. Closer "Disco Nights" - a breezy, summery nu-disco jam destined for heavy rotation in sunny climes - is also pretty nifty.

Leon Switch - "Lelyss" - (5:30) 94 BPM
from $2.48
Review: Already a tried and tested tear-up on vinyl, Chestplate finally code up Leon's "Deadlock" EP for the digital heads. Complete with a stark political message, "Deadlock" swaggers with an anchor-like kick swing, pad textures that breathe like an asthmatic robot and midrange bass snorts that scuff up and down the arrangement. "Persepolisia" takes us on a darker trip where a series of basses rev up alongside each other in pole position, all vying for your murkiest attention. Finally the Kryptic Minds cohort climaxes with "Lelyss". Operating around the 90BPM half tempo axis, there's a crisp, snake-like mentality to the synth bass that bounces like a tightly coiled spring amid a spellbinding brew of airy pads. Heady.

Echo Dub by Skeptical on Tempa Cue Track
Chain Reaction - (5:36) 140 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $2.48
Review: Tying Skeptical down to one particular genre is like wrestling with a rattle snake... Stupid and dangerous. Ever since his earliest outings on Ingredients and Zimbalam, he's shown a vast breadth creative ability and complexity from smouldering D&B soul to far-out, abyss-deep electronica. Here Tempa give him the keys to the dungeon as we find him in his deepest, darkest dub mindset. "Echo Dub" is a tight weave of knitted percussion, humming subs and eerie manipulated vocal elements. "Chain Reaction", meanwhile, develops on this with a thicker, more ominous sub dynamic that palpitates with liquid rigidity. The only stupid and dangerous thing to do right now is not pick up this.

Review: The ever-rising star of 2010/11 and master of experimental beats brings us the follow up EP to his superlative Noir EP which landed on Critical around this time last year. In the title track "Aria", Rockwell blends glitchy, cinematic rhythms with sonorous, blissed out vocals and cooling instrumentals. Next, "Live For The Moment" adds a dash of funk, whilst talented duo Ulterior Motive's remix of the aforementioned "Noir" is nothing short of superlative, as they toughen it up with a super dark b-line smashing breaks and that iconic Virus-meets-Subtitles tenacity. A collab with Hemlock owner Untold backs this up in "Rehekou Sunrise", adding a shimmy of samples and soulful bliss as we reach the end of the EP.

Review: It's the onset of a brave new era for Ostgut Ton as Panorama Bar 06 signals the label's decision to halt the manufacturing of CDs for their much loved series of mixes. Due for free download via the Ostgut site on August 11, the Berlin operation have not forgone the vinyl format with all the exclusives gathered by mix curator Ryan Elliott pressed up across a pair of 12" samplers. And boy did Elliott call in the favours with this first sampler featuring new and unreleased music from Neworldaquarium, Roman Flugel, Terrence Dixon, Tuff City Kids and Borrowed Identity. It is an overall exquisite selection, running from the ambience of NWAQ's contribution to Flugel's big room stomper and the sweeter, more playful sounds of Tuff City Kids and Borrowed Identity.

Review: The Gun Audio label have been killing it with each and every release since it opened for business at the beginning of 2013, but for those who haven't yet had a chance to experience their cutting edge take on D&B, this second label compilation is essential business. Frojm the sci-fi synths of Mackie Gee's "Transmission" through the punishing rhythms of Jaydan's "Acid High" and Benns' "Disconnected" to the more classic sounds of Bladerunner's "Hot Steppa", there really is something for every discerning D&B fan here to chew on until the next one arrives!

Review: Portugal's Alkalino is an expert juggler, always keeping his original productions up in the air alongside his edits. Here though he's firmly plumped for the latter, delivering a whopping 11 scalpel jobs for our listening pleasure. As expected the LP spans everything from vintage disco, cosmic funk and house. Highlights include the slinky, spacey arpeggiated pulser "Band Jive", the raw electro-funk stomper "Suspicious Mind" and the Gallic-tinged Euro/Italo disco seducer, "Je Flash".

from $2.48
Review: You might buy a release for the A-side, but the best stuff - the stuff you'll drop a helluva a lot longer - is always on the B-side. Naturally Ghetto Funk's B Side is dedicated to those longer lasting bangers, and here he is in full-flavour, four-track, happy-slapping form. Technique highlights include the supreme application of a very well-known horn sample on "Rock Ya Body", the chainsaw bass chugs and JB samples on "Get Involved", the tripped out high-end riff bubbles on "Bug On Out" and the p-funk attitude of the clinically obese bass on "The Dancer". Embrace this and you'll be B Side yourself! (Yeah, we went there...)

Review: 6Blocc doesn't channel dancehall; he breathes new life into it. This EP is a joyful twist and skank through vintage vocal riffs and rose-tinted ragga sounds with the deceitfully dark edge of his perfectly tuned bass programming. Simultaneously as gritty as it is joyous, each track give listeners (and DJs alike) the choice of vocal and dub mixes - although we'd seriously recommend the former. It's rare that the roots of d&b are celebrated at the forefront of deep d&b and this release makes the most of the past to create a fresh sounding EP ready to take over dancefloors everywhere. Crank it.

from $2.48
Review: Supporting the long-awaited debut album from Italian bass mainstays Numa Crew, Liondub International presents a double-A side featuring the one and only Dub FX on the mic. "Bass Hater" is a Frankenstein's monster of classic drum & bass and hip hop with its fusion of half-tempo rhymes and up tempo drums, showing off ultramodern production built around tightly wound bass burbles, minimalist drums and fine musical details. The instrumental flipside "B.M.X" leads with plucked strings suddenly run into the digitizer once the beat drops, a tense track of modern beat science at its finest to show off the Crew's most experimental side. Get involved.

from $2.48
Review: Barnsley's finest bass producer Brent Kilner has been talking recently about switching to a brand new sound, so the My Mind EP might just be your last chance to catch him killing it before he moves on. If they are his last bass tracks, he's bowing out it style, delivering the raucous and breaky 4x4/jump up hybrid "My Mind" and the deep and moody wobbler "Boomstick". The title track also gets remixed into some doomy dubstep by Pelikan and turned into an otherworldly bass assault by Kiri.

On The Upside (High Drummer edit) - (6:52) 120 BPM
from $2.48
Review: Four quintessential examples of editing finesse as newcomer Wonkar explores his extensive soul and boogie collection. With full emphasis squared on the slinky basslines, slower tempos and languishing grooves, each cut is a shimmering highlight in itself. He's also done shown some sensitivity to the art of digging without going too obscure. Notable moments include the stuttering '80s drum-heavy repurpose of Xena's "On The Upside" and the chubbed up low-end of Starpoint's "Last Night". There's also some cheeky Gap Band references buried deep in this killer EP too. Get this upside your head as soon as possible!

Played by: Modern Ruin Records
Review: The London-based Modern Ruin Records label arrives with a mission statement to showcase some of the most talented and innovative artists making moves on the juke and footwork scenes around the world, and the label's first EP gets things off to an incredibly strong start. Pawn kicks off with "Do U", a dancefloor destroyer melding footwork textures with punishing D&B-influenced rhythms and bass, while The Renegades' "The Warmup" offers a jazzier number which places deft amen breaks throughout. On the flip, Sideswipe's "Be With U" offers a gospel-influenced, funky take on footwork with its vintage sample, but it's Vorres' "One Of These Old Days" that takes the crown, with delicate 808 rhythms fluttering across more soulful vocals. Essential stuff from a label to watch.

Review: North England's Timbah is back with a vengeance on Tumble Audio, and he means business with this tight new three-tracker! The title track "No Bootlegs" is a neo-grime monster, packed with enough sleaze to blow your speakers out, but "Lemonhead Delight" and "No Tux" are no less menacing - power tracks built strictly for floor domination. Sentiment remixes "No Tux" into a deeper, less jagged half-step tune, while Checan transforms "Lemonhead Delight" into an electro-fuelled, UKG stepper - big!

Soaring liquid tunes from all over the smooth jazzed-up Liquid V galaxy kick off with TRAC's cool calm and collected rhymes in "The Party's Arrived" and continue to bring the heat with Simplification and Translate's sizzling roller "Tonight". "So Hold On" keeps up its own end of the bargain by rocking a seriously addictive grooving bassline and hot sax, while "Cut & Run" features old school sounds with a big beefy bass loop and sassy piano sampling. Finally, Random Movement wraps up the night with "Twilight At The Height", a sparkling stunner of a roller. No sleep til sunrise.

from $2.48
Review: Let's jump right in: DLR and Mako together on first track "Your Mind" is a beautiful thing. Waves of old school breaks move effortlessly under a calming wash of sound and bass playfully bubbles beneath the surface. This is next level D&B. As lovely as it is to hear Dirty LeeRoy making peace with the world though, it's also fantastic to hear him get down and filthy in huge tunes like "10 Steps" and "Sense Of Wanting". Mako returns for the lush and dubby "Outbound" and finally Rider Shafique joins the clan to add sultry speculation onto dark, dubbed-out "Seek Knowledge", which itself is a beautiful collection of skittering snares, breathy brass and scraped, scarred synth impacts. A stunning release.

Review: It's a been year since Barcelona's Apersonal dropped the first volume of Coastal Soul, doesn't time fly when your having fun? Vol 2 marks their fourth anniversary and once again it's another continuous mix by label co-founder Andres Vegas. He doesn't disappoint either - further pursuing the sounds previously explored and adding to their repertoire too. Highlights include the sultry jack of "LA Melody (Session Victim mix)" by Egyptian Nipples, the deliciously warped electro-house-pop "More For The Less" by Mario Basanov and the slo-mo, fuzzy-sludge house of "Nothing Wrong With Holding On" by Michael J Collins.

Review: Dr Meaker's fan favourite "Right Back" gets four remixes, giving a brand new perspective on this gorgeous little track. Beatmaker legend Break gets his hands on the first slot on the release, cutting into the drop in a stunningly stark way, weaving dark drums magic the only way he can. Next up is Nathan Dalton's floorstomping 2-step take, pumping out the garage vibes and cranking the bass up to roof-raising levels. If harder-edged drum & bass is more your thing, 12 Inh has switched the BPM right back up and added more than a nudge of extra percussion for a huge jump up vibe with a jazzy twist. Finally, because it was just so damn good, that bassy garage retwist is back for an extended mix. Excellent.

Review: For a label that only launched this spring, Nu Wave has taken no prisoners whatsoever. Repping the funkier side of garage and the darker side of deep house, Deckstar and Steve Brooke have established a distinctive sonic signature in a very short space of time. Here we find them tethering their past work with a number of exclusives to form this highly accomplished debut compilation. Ranging from the dark bubble/jazz-chord balance of Deckstar's "Wondering" to Lee Martin's organ-slapping "Wanna Be" via Duo and Chantelle Rowe's blistering vocal stunner "Enough Of Your Love", Nu Wave paint an on-point picture with clarity and originality.

Review: Ill Advised and DJ Butcher go way back, so when it came time for the former to release a full length LP, it made total sense that the latter would release it via his Chopshop imprint. Fat Sams Cosmic Jams features 11 nu-disco cuts, all of which are strictly party joints including the deep synthy boogie loops of "Please You", the 120 bpm hands-in-the-air, almost French Touch-esque "Overnight Sensation", the beefed-up hi-NRG of "Is It Love Is It" and the nasty, block rockin' electro-funk of "Kick It Live".

Review: Cologne-based selector and DJ Stephen Baldo has been putting records out for a decade now, but has really found his sound since he started to transmit music under the Ugly Drums guise. After an album for Quintessentials and 12" stealth drops on Kolour, Black Key Limited and Fifty Fathoms Deep last year, the Ugly Drums project resurfaces in triumphant fashion with this killer transmission for the ever excellent Faces label. Featuring contributions from Kalakuta Soul System, Chesney and Detroit based MC/Producer Brownstudy, the four tracks here are perfect ammo for any self respecting selector who likes to duck between house, disco and hip hop with lead cut "The Freak" our favourite.

There's also some Daft Punk-meets-DJ Shadow-meets-Stevie Wonder action on Funkanomics "One More Headache", while Funky Boogie Brothers bring back the big beat fun with "Street Jam" - and that's not even the half of it!

Review: If you like your funk and breakbeats a little dirtier, than Funk Fusion have the grease to grind those gears. Terry Wagun drops a wobbly, saw-wave bassline over a choral of Lily Allen vocals in the opening track, while Mr Bristow slugs out some dirty low-end similar to Mr Oizo's "Analog Worms Attack" in his addition. For a crunchy, slowed down, stoners version of Pharrell's "Happy" there's 2RUD's "Happy Ska" - and don't forget Dave Gerrad's mashup of Queen and Kurtis Blow's "The Breaks" in his Funkadelic "Kurtis Breaks". Some bass-heavy 808 beats like Felix Da Housecat's "Kickdrum" rumble under a pair of titan hip hop vocals in "Turn Down For Hip Hop" thanks to Lil Jon and Fatman Scoop samples which spit over the top of Major Lazer synths. Get fused.

Review: Spanish nu-disco DJ Nelue has developed quite a reputation for himself both with his residency at his Moroder Sound Club and with his label, Groove Democracy. Now he's upped his game again by delivering a seriously impressive 24-track label compilation featuring his own work and a selection of offerings from a host of key names on the re-edit scene. Highlights include Nelue's gentle retweak of Terri Well's 1984 anthem "All My Love", the chuggy arpeggiation of "Canebiere Man" and The Metaphysical's Bloop Crack glorious extension of Wham!'s kitchen synth drama, "Everything She Wants".

Review: Having spent months locked away in his Bologna bolthole, veteran Italian producer LTJ (Luca Trevisi) has returned to the daylight with a new batch of fresh edits for the listening public. The sound here is, of course, his beloved psyche-rock/cosmic disco fusion - the sound with which he originally made his name back in the '80s. It's a deep, trippy and rewarding listen particularly on the slinky, percussion-heavy throbber "Plug Me" and the tight and tough disco-funker "I Want Some More".

Review: It's not often an artist gets treated to being remixed 18 times on the one release, but here Morlack pulls it off. But before the remixing gets underway he raises the curtain with a Notorious B.I.G sampling gambit of slashing synths, tearing basslines and fluttering drums. Then there's the remixes. Funkanomics get all big band, Stevie Wonder and straight up hip hop on part two of a remix to "Take It To The Zulu", while BadBoE provides a killer remake of "Nice & Rough". James Brown is in the place during Trotter's remix of "Play Cards Right" while Morlack electrofunkifies himself in a 2014 remix of "Ghetto Vaccination". More breakbeats than you can poke a DJ at!

Review: Mining his sizable back catalogue of tracks, Joker has called upon a host of producers to remix his work on no less than eight separate occasions, albeit staying within the realms of bass-weight business across the gamut of dubstep and its derivatives. Swindle adds some extra feist and flex into "Purple City", while Gemmy takes a dramatic stance on "Snake Eater". There are more light-hearted synth horn stabs at work on Trolley Snatcha's version of "Newham Generals", and Kromestar brings the cheekily swung noise on a bouncy version of "Tron". If this richly melodic corner of dubstep gets you swaying, then there's no valid reason to not delve into the purple goodness post haste.

Review: Crisp, futuristic sounds come courtesy of UK's own J Hybrid, a producer who's seemingly more prolific every single month that passes. This time he turns his paranoid junglist sounds to 36 Hertz, and first track "Nothing Else" is a blending high-powered dancefloor filler powered by the manifestly dark thoughts that fill his best productions. "Bring It On" changes the mood completely, with sizzling horns sampled over big punches of bass and jungle breaks and as "Smash and Grab" moves into cinematic territory with widescreen atmospherics we almost forgot where we were...until the drop. "Reach" rounds this stonker of an EP up with the soundtrack to a true old school rave. Bring the energy.

Shake The Foundations - (6:30) 140 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $2.48
Review: Hotly tipped emerging talent from London, Indiji lets rip with his Uprise debut. "Darknet" comes with a bassline heartbeat that palpitates so hard and erratically it's borderline coronary. Squiggling and wriggling over the industrial strength swing, it instantly captures you right in depths of your belly. Further on we hit "Shake The Foundations", a track that truly lives up to its name. Demonstrative spatial science is applied as a rich warm bassline plays one-note chicken with the titanium riddim. Debuts really don't come more authoritative than this; we're anticipating big things for Indiji in the near future.

Review: The UK's Billy Kenny makes his debut on the always-on-point, Four40! Kenny is a pure garage wizard, with a sound that could seriously rip up the floor. "Call You Back" features one of those basslines which you can leave on loop for hours, allowing it to seduce you into its incessant rhythm, providing a tune for the late-night hours that you can mix in with just about anything. "Work" is similarly funky and loaded with bone-shaking low-end, except this time Mr.Kenny is in an even nastier mood. Fire!

Review: Such is the ambition of disco edit label Katakana that their mission statement proclaims them to release 'music made on earth', like they're aiming for success beyond the stars. It's a pretty stellar line-up they've got too with French edit wonder Morlack getting two appearances both on the Miami Sound Machine-esque Latin electro-funk of "Feel Alright" and on a muscled up version of James Brown's "Living In America". Elsewhere we get early '90s hip-house vibes from Trotter on "Loco Trill" and slinky '80s slow boogie on "Bottoms Up". If that don't get the aliens dancing, nothing will.

Review: What can we say about Break that hasn't already been said? This man is D&B mythology - every producer namechecks, every DJ represents, every soldier on the dancefloor knows that Break equals neck-snapping quality of the highest order. Both tunes on this release are, it goes without saying, superb, but both come from different dark places. "Groove With it" is the stepper you want, "Soldier" is the heavy, bottomed-out, snare-flailing dangerzone you need. Drum and bass for the connoisseur who still likes to get messed up when it suits. Beautiful.

from $2.48
Review: Jennifer Cardini's Correspondent label is all about exploring the primitive, raw sounds of pure, adrenaline-fuelled techno, so this summertime compilation is something to cherish. Stepping away from the harsh realities of the dancefloor for a second, the first sounds heard are the haunting pads and dampened drums of Undo's "3,9 Grados En La Escala Richter", piling on grim focus while synths oscillate. Following, "Phantoms Are Watching Us" is Swedish producer Paresse's chance to share some fragile observations, and he does not disappoint. Offset offers "Retro Future" next, filled with understated brightness, Inigo Vontier toughens up with the hard hitting bass of "Motor" and finally Brisoki's "Sunday Morning" rolls on into the sunset with retro disco sounds and a guitar loop that just don't quit. A stunning collection.

Review: A full-flavoured six-track slab of naughtiness right here from Annix and its two members. The title track steps so sharply there's a danger you may cut your ears but the moody minor piano chords and a dramatic drop make for the perfect ointment. "Take It Back" is a much skittier, switchy rave homage that jitters and jumps with a cool sense of unpredictability. Decimal Bass's contributions add further weight and range: "Battle Station" will unleash your inner ugly with a bassline that's so wild and unkempt it will genuinely sweep you off your feet while "Near Me" is a soaring vocal workout that's almost reminiscent of the Ram Trilogy material 15 years ago. Konichi's creations add further contrast: "Visions" looks towards deeper corners of the dance as it rolls with bulbous bass and Daft Punkian vocal work, while "Entrance" scuffs and growls with heady hypnosis. Truly something for everyone.

This tracklist of rising stars like Excalibur, Mara Man and Deploy sit alongside the likes of Savage Rehab and Renegade Live to pull off the biggest D&B event of the year. Hold tight, this is gonna get messy.

from $2.48
Played by: Zen Dub
Review: Brazilian producer L Side has a way with liquid not many producers do at this moment in time. Rather than pedalling the perpetual sun of his homeland, his rollers are wrought with emotion, tinted with darkness and glazed with sultry production techniques. He's no spick and span liquid merchant. He deals in tunes with feeling. "So High" featuring MC Fava could easily be a chart-botherer in the UK, piecing together unsettled lyrics with a stunning, sparkling backdrop of minor key lushness. If it was all getting a bit deep though, "Riddim Dancer" switches proceedings into stepper overdrive, showing that this guy is more than a one-trick pony. Dark and dirty and made with real care and passion, L Side really is one to watch.
