Review: Rising to prominence with a release on Horizontal Ground back in 2010, Alex Coulton has since put out material on Livity's offshoot and a brace of material on Tempa. Putting out material on those labels coincides with a shift in his productions, audible on this release. "Ground Zero" resounds to gut-busting bass and a series of tense drops, while "Alpha Decay" sees the Manchester producer deliver loose rhythms and filtered, skeletal percussion. There is some return to the straighter techno that Coulton was originally associated with on the title track and the cool, detached bleeps of "Phase Two", but overall, this release marks a further venture into the abstract for this talented young artist.

Review: Scene sergeant Youngsta returns with his first full release in years. Tag-teaming with rising producer Cimm, the vibe is deep, roomy and constructed with a stately, unhurried alien funk. Every element considered and fine-tuned both tracks take us deep into a meditative mindset without ever pressing the snooze button: "Split Minds" rolls with bass tones so warm they almost bounce while "Redshift" takes us into an even dubbier pasture with some great attention paid to the sporadic rhythm elements. Beautiful.

Review: Although Appleblim has been missing from the scene and out of action relative to the golden years of dubstep, he's still very much a legend in our books, and every time some new material from the man pops up we just can't help ourselves from being excited. The bass legend is back on the foundational Tempa label, home to so many stunning releases by himself and other luminaries such as Benga and Skream, and "Minus Degree" sees the producer take a conservative shift toward the surreal and the experimental, hardly using any beats of low end at all to get his point across. "Move Them", however, takes a dance shape and ends up sounding like a distorted, off-kilter dub techno joint of the highest order, whereas "Twist It Down" powers down the engines to deliver a deep, chimerical sort of dub house that simply must be played out on a big, nasty soundsystem.

Review: BANG! Time for the next Dubstep Allstars compilation - the only source of true bass delights and quality underground rhythms from the UK's capital. J Kenzo takes control of the selections this time and boy does he deliver the goods; there's plenty to go through as per usual and we don't want to spoil it for you, so you're just going to have to listen in for yourself. What we can say is that there's a fine blend of both J Kenzo's productions and other up and coming bass technicians. If you're a fan of the past series, it would be pretty daft to miss this...

Review: Everyone's gotta have an angle and Nomine's is certainly unique - he makes deep dubstep with Far Eastern influences. His latest missive boasts a sound that evokes mystical temples, secret rituals and ninjas. The sparse and brooding "Blind Man" is based around a movie sample where a young whippersnapper learns the ways of the spirit from a wise old master. "To The Sky" again features minimal arrangements peppered with bassy belches and mystical vocals courtesy of Lustina, and finally "Nomine's Robot" wraps up the release on an uptempo note - all housey kicks and rimshot percussion. Classy and unique!

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: Thank god for the vigilantes out there, doing their bit to bring dubstep back to its deep, dark roots. J Kenzo is no newcomer to this game, but the stark simplicity of his beats have sent labels into a frenzy over the past year, seeking out destruction without the mess and confusion. That's his speciality - depth and power with a crushing clarity that makes each track all the more potent. Using the bare minimum of effects, this EP conjours the sounds of the night, somehow simultaneously atmospheric, clear and crisp. Tempa and J Kenzo, what a combo.

Therapy - (4:07) 140 BPM
from $1.89
Review: J Kenzo makes an appearance on the lauded and legendary Tempa imprint with these two tough little tracks, which display heaps of character and genre-defining skill. "Ruffhouse" sees Kenzo team up with Rod Azlan for an intriguing journey, dominated by bleepy synth melody and low-slung bongo drum for the first minute, before dropping into a classic mid-noughties dubstep burner with hypnotic bass and weighty soundscape. "Therapy" is reminiscent of some of Pinch and the Tectonic crew's more experimental work, with a techno twinge, fidgeting beats, a Benga & Coki bleep and plenty of unique character to set it apart from the rest.

Review: Tempa are always a good litmus test of where the UK bass scene is currently at. Here they present their selection of highlights from 2015 and this broadly diverse selection is proof that bass is in rudimentary health. Standouts amongst the six tracks featured include Epoch's raw and doomy trap-stepper "The Ville", the futuristic footwork of "Aut" by Cliques and the creepy, abstract beats of "Closed Minds" by Biome.

from $1.89
Review: Making his debut on Tempa, multi talented MC, producer and one third of the Code 3 collective, SP:MC steps up with a couple of killer cuts on the legendary London imprint. "Oh My Gosh" is a slow paced, super sleuth of a track with low slung, undulating bassline, gently hissing hi-hats and clipped breaks with a retro edge. It harks back to the early days of dubstep, with a hint of Benga in there. Title track "Hunted" is another gnarly cut, with gritty, warping b-line, paranoid SFX adding further menace to the already darkened soundscape. Well worth checking!

TVR - (6:39)

Review: Fresh from his excursions with Jubei on Metalheadz, J Kenzo returns with two more distinctive sonic spells. "Magneto" is a rumbling halfstep behemoth; slurring bass, a dark pitched down vocal loop and a savage low-end groove, it reminds us why we all fell in love with Tempa sound in the first place. "TVR" is even more interesting; rolling on a low-swung, shuffling breakbeat, there's a techno sensibility to the loops and incessant groove. Carrying all the classic J Kenzo hallmarks while pushing him in a wholly new direction, this will go down as a pivotal release for the producer.

Review: Celebrating his Tempa debut with an expansive four-track banquet, AxH is cooking with nothing but the most authentic heavyweight flavours right here. "Destroy" is instantly timeless as we're stripped back to the bare bass riddim and thundering kicks and claps. "Giant Footprints" is more groove focused as we swagger to the resonant halfstep and craggy, nagging hook. Further on we immerse ourselves in loopy hypnosis on "Everdine" and invest in bitter sweet drama on "I Feel Safe". Something tells us this is only the beginning of a perfect relationship between AxH and Tempa.

Review: Tempa regular J Kenzo is a hard man to keep up with, so prolific is the bass-driven producer at issuing forth his sharply produced grime, dubstep and UK Funky. He's back on his usual stomping ground with this latest stepper and it packs all the cool and deadly wares you want for that moody, early part of the night. Juiceman is in killer form on "Urban Gorilla", sitting comfortably on top of Kenzo's atmospheric beat with a poised vocal delivery. "Expansion" finds Kenzo drifting into synth heavy 130 territory without losing that sense of space so key to his productions, before "Technoid" ramps up the pressure with a powerful synth hit that could just easily sit in a dub techno jam.

Poseidon - (4:33)

Review: Having spent some deep studio time with the likes of Kryptic Minds and Icicle in the past, Youngsta's really found his groove in the deeper, space-bound side of dubstep. With such natural mechanics, there's a techno twang to both cuts here. "Destruction" is more robust as it chugs with a halfstep and thinly veiled menace. "Poseidon", meanwhile, flutters with a two-step heartbeat and intricate percussion that weaves us from Detroit to Croydon and back again. Beautiful.

Visions - (5:38) 125 BPM
from $1.89
Review: Increasingly sparring in the studio and on the decks, Bristol bods Hodge and Facta consummate their partnership with this release for Rinse that highlights two very different but equally essential cuts. "Spheres Of Costa Rica" riffs on a distant and enchanting hook of traditional vocal and places it in the midst of a spooky house framework rich with melodic percussive hits and plenty of low-end heft. "Visions" meanwhile takes a more moody route into oppressive industrial scrapes and dubby treatments to make a thoroughly contemporary hybrid belter that holds back as much as it releases. It's an assured release that plays on the strengths of both producers and points the way for more cool and deadly dance killers to come.

Review: Serial badman and international dubstep superstar Skream presents the seventh (yes, seventh) volume of Skreamizm, a much lauded and highly influential series that's been cited by many as one of those iconic milestones in the rise of Dubstep as we know it. Purists and newcomers alike will find something of appeal here, as the Croydon label done good flexes his address book muscle on the opening track "Copy Cat" where deftly placed beats sit perfectly with the polished, seductive and slightly husky vocals of US vocalist Kelis. Elsewhere, cuts such as "Vacillate" provide a stark contrast with the jarring synths and punishing snares in a heavy, pressurized soundscape. Watch out for "Scrooge's Revenge" with its heavy, wub-wub sound, as well as the deeply hypnotic "Junkyard Dispute" with its eerie wailing and buzzing basslines. Excellent from start to finish.

Review: Despite a so-called genre death perpetuated by arguably one of Tempa's biggest proteges Skream, the label continues to put some of the finest quality 140bpm bass music to task. Whether you choose to label it dubstep or bass music is your choice, but we prefer to keep things simple. Proxima has been proudly flaunting his penchant for the darker things in life since his first outings with Icicle and has now become one of the scene's most enlightening deep producers. "Thermal Vision" is a hard minimal stepper, pushing crisp production to the limit, while on the flip "Valve Wars" takes that warped acid bass to another level, chewing up old school values and spitting them out over a true dubstep rhythm. It's good to be in the 140 camp sometimes.

Review: A trustworthy tune tailor since 2008, it's about time Mr Kenzo gave us an album. And the very fact it's on Tempa - a much bigger label than Kenzo's own Soul Shakerz - speaks volumes in terms of the quality you can expect across the 12 tracks. Those who've followed Kenzo's previous shizzle will know the pristine level of deep bass production on offer, but there's a few curveballs dotted throughout for added dynamics. Cuts such as the Footsie-featured grime hybrid "No Man's Land" and the hands-in-the-air spine-chiller "Eyes Wide Open" showcase Kenzo's skills on the widest possible level. An immaculate debut LP.

Review: Take a trip inside the dark, shadowy mind of Tempa troublemaker Nomine. With two years of solid grooves behind him, Inside is a much deeper, investigative trip that comprises unpredictable tribal wonk ("84600"), spacious slug-bass wrigglers ("Hide & Seek") and restrained, haunted barbed soul ("Shockwaves"). For a key highlight that really sums up Nomine's complexity, though, jump on the philosophical timpani headbender 'Nomine's Ego'. Truly one of a kind, this is a statement as much as it is a debut album.

Review: AXH's less-is-more approach can be found in everything he does; both his sparse release rate and lean arrangements ensure we pay close attention to everything he does. Following his "Destroy" EP in 2014 come these four minimal muscularities; "Numbskull" rolls on a bleep hook that's reminiscent of mid 00s minimal techno but with swaggering kicks while "Gem Tone" utilises similar (but differently processed) lead sounds and an array of great samples including Amazonic noises and an MC bigging up Luke Skywalker. "Hacker" takes us much deeper into the dance as AXH hooks up with erstwhile Canadian D&B crew Gremlinz for some shattered amen antics and "D Lux" closes proceedings with a woozy, off-beat weave of hand drums, strange bleeps and a purring sub that makes its presence known without ever having to raise its voice.

Review: Following their killer "Devils Hands" on Tempa at the start of the summer, New Zealand crew Truth get down and dirty with the London mega-label once again. "Chicks & Drugs", a hook up with San Francisco-based bass monkey Stylust Beats, is a low-swung sleaze-fest with added ghetto attitude and no end of sub. "Empire" is more akin to what the trio's past repertoire; all spacious, tripped out and hypnotic, it's peppered with naked elements, each one designed to lock your attention and take you far, far away. They say the truth hurts. Turn up the volume and find out for yourself!

Review: Since 2010, and coming out of the whole post-dubstep scene, Manchester's Alex Coulton has been among the best of the UK bass artists. His skills being the mixing board have seen him travel from label to label, stopping off at the likes of Idle Hands, All Caps, Livity Sound, and even the mighty Tempa. Coulton returns to the latter with a follow-up to last year's "Recall" bombshell, and he's in no mood to mess around here. "Ambush" is a tribalesque tech-house number with a rattling percussion that renders it UK through and through; "Direction" sees the producer return to his more usual mood by serving up a broken bundle of drums and percussion curling around loose melodies and a dubbed-out makeover. For fans of Hessle output - what that bassline, son! Hot!

Review: No other MC has made the transition from performer to producer as well as SP:MC. Hinting promise since his early forays with Breakage almost eight years ago, he's shown the utmost versatility and creativity. Back to the future and his skills are still more than evident. Ranging from icy, sheet metal beats ("Declassified") to skippy, steppy minimalism ("Kenshin"), this is one of SP's broadest, most accomplished EPs to date.

Review: Forever synonymous with the advent of dubstep, Tempa has paved the way for the evolution of the genre since the turn of the millenium. Providing the backdrop of seriously talented dubstep producers at the top of their game for Nomine to play against, this mysterious producer has done the label and his peers proud. Featuring two tracks of equal intensity from different places in his mind, "Nomine's Sound" is a mournful lament framed by classic dubstep vibes and bare space marked by eastern influences, while "Searching" uses this idea of space and scarcity to create an unsettling atmosphere in which to house morphed vocal samples and middle-eastern sounds. Beautifully crafted and with a real sense of movement, it's a track that deserves to sit up there with the best.

Review: How Strange is Truth's fourth release on Tempa following last year's Devil Hands and Chicks & Drugs. The brass bell chiming title-track features the eastern-tinged vocals of female singer Bijou. Layered over the top of wobbly bass rumbles that create its lurching groove are keys similar to 187 Lockdown's garage crossover hit "Gunman". Two further tracks appear with the minimal yet heavy drum passages of "Justify" sounding like something that would be right at home on Deep Medi, while its vocals and synth work nestle quite comfortably into the Tempa aesthetic. For some deeper bass vibrations to bliss-out to there's also the icy cold and dusty "Yesterdays".

Review: Some say the Devil's hands are manicured and sport the finest gemstones. Some say the Devil's hands have love/hate tattooed on them. Others - like us - say the "Devils Hands" are the epitome of beautifully deep, dark dubstep. "Devil's Hands" is a slurring, slab of haunted dub-soul while "I Belong" shows the trio at their softest, most emotional state with sexy subs and a purring vocal. Tempa nail it again? Ain't that the Truth!

Don't Forget Your Roots (feat Rani) - (6:10) 140 BPM
from $1.89
Review: AMIT has never been a producer who rides with the tides. As one of the artists at the forefront of the half-step and minimal drum & bass scenes, his sets have become an urban legend, somewhere between old-style rave mentality and full-on hypnosis. "Acid Trip" is a techy exploration into the greater depths of electronic music, and being on pioneering dubstep label Tempa, he can afford to get a bit experimental. Fearless and bold, the title track holds tight as it plummets further and further into the abyss. "Don't Forget Your Roots" hosts eerie Dia de Muertos organs playing out a reggae rhythm until a haunted, deconstructed dub bursts into the lower end. Spooky, almost comical sounds from a deadly serious producer. A lighter side to AMIT or are we being too aloof? We'll let you decide.

Review: There's no doubt that Laurie Osborne's style is ever evolving and always captivating, regardless of what phase he's in. His new EP on London institution Tempa provides three awesome cuts proving why he still is one of the UK's finest. Title track 'Avebury" is proggy, moody and downright epic in a way that would make James Holden of Nathan Fake blush. Next up is the beatless and experimental soundscape of "Auburn Blaze" with its layer upon layer of sinister pads leading up to some truly demonic sub bass snarl that's just got to be heard! Finally "Wandred" carries on with the experimental vibes on this haunting and demonic ambient piece that truly plunders into the depths.

Review: There aren't many recent producers out there who have had a career as diverse and as wild as the present Alex Coulton. With his music ranging from house, to techno and bass, Coulton has released on an impressive spectrum of labels including the militant Frozen Border, Bristol's Idle Hands, Black Acre, and now dubstep heavyweight Tempa - yup, impressive, indeed! He's come along with a two-track bullet, the firs being the percussive "Hand To Hand Combat", a broken groove and a whole load of tribalesque goodness within, and the utterly stomping, totally dubbed-out and hazy "Concealed Weapon". Those swarms of bass on the latter literally made our spines tingle this morning. Hot and recommended!

Review: Undisputed godfathers of UK dubstep Horsepower Productions are back with another full length; their first in 12 years since 2004's To The Rescue LP. As Tempa themselves put it succinctly: "Crooks, Crime & Corruption" draws from numerous facets of the UK underground and further afield in order to take you on a compelling, wholly immersive journey. Highlights include "Justify" featuring Harry Keyworth which sounds like Jah Wobble versus Ry Cooder, the deep spiritual house of "Bak 2 NY" or "Kurisoity 6" and the business as usual, street level bass therapy as heard on the raw "Change" or the pure fire junglist anthem "Criminally Insane".
