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: 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...

Visions - (5:38) 125 BPM

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: 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: 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: 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: 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.

Poseidon - (4:33)
from $1.95
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.

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!

Review: Usually known for D&B on labels such as SGN:LTD and Renegade, Proxima drops his tempos and receives the Tempa treatment. Two huge escapades into time and deep, deep space, title track "Formal Junction" shows Proxima's flare for flux as the rhythm morphs from pensive halfstep to skippy riddim with the help of just one element, and light can be found by the momentary hug from a startling synth. "Grunge", up next, lives up to its name as sludgy textures and strange guttural, digital groans weave their way around the ever-mutating beats and dubbed out rim-shots. Recognise the darkness.

Review: Manchester-based producer Biome has been cultivating his own distinct brand of pummelling, stripped-back minimalist dubstep for over six years now, gaining plaudits and accolades for his output on labels such as Osiris, Black Box and Macabre Unit. The Cromos EP represents Biome's label debut for the mighty Tempa and brandishes a triptet of tracks that really showcase the full range of the producer's sound. Final track "Delta" is an undoubted highlight, a real vicious exercise in achieving the maximum pressure from the minimum of elements with little more than hard, brusque and broken rhythms and deadly bass utilised.

from $1.95
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!

Syncopator - (6:38) 62 BPM
from $1.95
Review: Since debuting on Tempa last year with Nomine's Sound, the producer has consistently impressed with his blend of classic dubstep sonics melded with subtle Eastern influences. Nomine's Chant sees the producer continue to develop this style in a more explicit way, with the title track combining bold Oriental vocals and plucked strings with the kind of subtle atmosphere you'd find on a Shackleton production. "Ninjah" is a much more confrontational track, pulling away the serenity of the title track and leaving only bold subs and murky vocals. "Syncopator" is something totally unexpected, bringing things down to 125BPM and creating something with nods to classic UK funky and bleep techno, in a manner not dissimilar to the recent productions of Beneath.

Review: Having served a vital function in testing the temperature of bass music at key times since Tempa first started operations at the nexus of dubstep, the latest instalment of Tempa Allstars succinctly lays down a crystal clear definition of where some of the most exciting noises are being made, and its based around the industrial sound sources, grime intensity and techno experimentalism of artists such as Wen, Batu and Alex Coulton at this time. All three are on searing form here, whether it be the broken swerve of the former or the dread-filled 4/4 thrust of the latter, and likewise Innasound, AxH and Peverse bring their own continuations of the hardcore continuum to bear to devastating effect.

Review: Having showcased their exemplary collaborative abilities way back in 2010 with "Masai Mara", Youngsta and Seven collide once again for two more hard-hitting doom steppers. "Architects" is out-and-out tribal science, all concrete percussion and ominous drones designed with precise attention to detail you'd expect from its professional namesake. "War Cry" is a minimal masterpiece where the bass preaches a sermon of pure gloom while a shimmering arpeggio suggests light at the end of the tunnel. Step towards it today.

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: It's about time Plastician stepped up to Tempa's Dubstep Allstars series. A long-time ambassador for all flavours of the ever-developing and mutating scene, this has been a long time coming. Naturally he's risen to the pedigree the mix series has achieved over the years with a selection of wide-eared grooves that stretch from the soulful vocal VIP opener "Brap" to deeper, more techno inclined dubstep (Jaydrop's "Blind Run") via haunted-house dungeonstep (Commodo's "Axis") and savage grime-hook ups (Merky Ace's "Greaze"). Curated by one of the scene's most respected selectors, this one's been well worth the wait.

Don't Forget Your Roots (feat Rani) - (6:10) 140 BPM
from $1.95
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: A simple exercise in dubstep mathematics here; take Youngsta, add some LX One, release the results on Tempa and stand back and watch the dancefloor devastation! Youngsta really needs no introduction, and on Responsibility the Rinse FM stalwart makes a welcome return to Tempa, teaming up with LX One (also known as Joker D) on two heavyweight rollers primed for the halfstep lovers out there. Both the title track and accompaniment "No Cure" adhere to Tempa's purist direction; the minimal "Responsibility" emerges from the ether, drops a quick vocal sample then gets on with the business of pushing out a hulking robotic bassline over snapping metallic drum programming. On the flip, "No Cure" plunges into sub heavy terrain, forgoing the emphasis on crushing bassweight of its precursor for a focus on establishing atmosphere.

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: Tempa turns back time while staring defiantly into the future: Youngsta takes Truth's summer 2013 thunder-jam "Devil's Hands" and turbo-charges it with such a steppy dynamic you can see the speed lines firing from your speaker. Next up, take J Kenzo's 2012 minimal blunderbuss and introduce an added synth texture and a slinkier groove to the bass. Both fine examples of how to smash a remix while paying respect to the strong originals.

Review: After releases on Idle Hands, Livity, All Caps and Mistry, Mancunian producer Alex Coulton made a worthy, if rather belated debut on Tempa last month as part of the label's ongoing Allstars compilation series. A debut proper for Coulton now arrives in the shape of the two track 12" Recall which finds the producer channelling some typically dark side spirits. It's most apparent on the title track where phased vocals careen around the channels as a pummelling gaseous bassline pushes the skittering half step rhythm outwards. "Wiretap" is more redolent of the Livity Sound school of skeletal polyrhythmic bangers and is no less impressive.

Review: Finally, after nearly a year of online hype and speculation, Killawatt and Ipman's Merenghi-esque "Darkplace" sees the light of day. Delightfully gloomy and moody, start peeling away each bass texture and you realise how complex this track is. Funky, too; there's a bounce on the low-end that's seldom seen on dungeon-bound tracks like this. "Sur Place", meanwhile, flips the techno switch with a nagging, bashy riddim laced with all manner of trippy SFX and groove motifs. Essential.

Review: Markee Ledge is back everyone! The drum and bass legend formerly known as Substance who formed breakthrough act Kosheen with Decoder now appears for the esteemed London imprint Tempa. You trust a veteran like Ledge to deliver the goods here like he does on "Underground Railroad" with its immaculately programmed industrial percussion textures hammering away backed by chilling atmospheres and powerful bass pulsations. After first premiering on Youngsta's Rinse FM show over a year ago, we're glad this finally saw the light of day.

Review: Champion of dark, tough and considered dubstep, Distance provides the latest instalment in the much loved Dubstep Allstars mix series. It's fairly typical fare from the Chestplate boss man, with tough steady rhythms underpinned by that particularly distorted kind of bassline. There are a number of highlights, most notably Commodo's "Surveillance" which has a rolling break woven into the mix. Cyrus' "Looking Back" also impresses as it purrs away with a gorgeously warm, rich synth line. The biggest surprise is probably Distance's own remix of trance bods Above & Beyond. It's certainly as 'big room' as you'd ever imagine Distance getting!

Review: Consequence's debut for the ever-reliable Tempa comprises of a couple of razor sharp, on point half-step cuts. "Injunction" builds gradually from a stripped back intro of a smacking snare drum and glowering atmospherics into an ominous main part, replete with breathy vocal, bubbling subs and an eerie gloom, becoming almost tribal towards the end. The accompanying "Chamber Music" is just as hypnotic with its hushed chanting, speckled beats and throbbing bass. This is music for the heads, no question.

Review: J Kenzo returns to Tempa for a third round of heady dubstep of the old school variety. Using the standard dubstep toolkit to create something that is more than the sum of its parts, "Invaderz" is paranoid stuff, creating an oppressive atmosphere with its lurching bass. "Depth Charge" is more of the same finely sculpted half-step, with a searing bass that gets right under your skin.
