Find Me (feat Aria) - (5:39) 133 BPM
Fall - (4:37) 135 BPM
Incomplete - (5:40) 133 BPM
Fire - (4:56) 131 BPM
Review: The Crucast collective continue to set pace with this one as they employ the services of bassline legend: BASSBOY for a highly energetic four track bonanza. Right from the off on the title track 'Find Me' we are introducing to electric lead synths partnered up with angelic vocals from Aria. From here we sweep into the creative sound design and twisted basslines of 'Fall'. Next we move into the smooth jazzy chords introductions of 'Incomplete' finishing off with sub heavy rolling synths and crafted vocal distortion of 'Fire'. This a great box of bass music from one of the most consistent in the game!

Review: Man of the moment Daze Prism returns to the steadily smouldering breaks / UKG champions Articulate with a spacebound stepper that's not dissimilar to the world of Koma & Bones or Ils 13 years ago. Poignant vocals, an elastic bassline and a cool sense of comiscity; this kicks with serious emotion. Remix highlights include Nixon's grittier switch-fest and Nuaura's monster riff twist. Take us back...

Hidden Art - "Don't Look Behind" - (6:52) 128 BPM
Thorn - "Beautiful" (feat Elle Exxe) - (5:24) 129 BPM
Royal Flush - "Energy" - (5:03) 135 BPM
Swan - "Be Better" - (3:15) 138 BPM
Urvin June & Adam Hyjek - "Attention" (feat Anthony Carey) - (4:10) 124 BPM
Review: Ultra Bass run the gully gauntlet once again with this five-track two-step dispatch. All shades, all styles, all vibes: Hidden Art conjures up the ghosts of Djrum with a loose-limbed two-step and heavy atmospheres on "Don't Look Behind", Thorn gets all jazzy and soulful on the fittingly titled "Beautiful", Royal Flush clears the table with a slinked-out bareback stepper while Swan brings the fluoro feels with lavish sweeping synths on "Be Better" and Urvin June & Adam Hyjek bring the EP to a close with dulcet touches of Anthony Carey on the sweet and soulful "Attention." Bonafide.

Delusions 4x4 - (3:14) 138 BPM
Club Fade 95 - (6:31) 126 BPM
Drifting - (5:29) 134 BPM
Gangrene - (6:07) 128 BPM
Review: Within UK bass culture, Tumble Audio have gone on to achieve veteran status, both as an events company and as a highly innovative independent label. For their latest release, co-founder Killjoy is back amongst the madness with a crazy four tracker. The title track 'Delusions' is a tasty 4x4 number, incorporating lethal synthesis and sharp drum processing. Following this we hear the more UKG influenced stylings of 'Drifting' and explosive funky arrangements of 'Gangrene'. Finally the EP rounds off with the choppy 808 led triplets of 'Club Fade 95', after successfully traversing a huge spectrum of UK bass music themes.

Review: Kyle by name, Riot by nature: rising up the ranks with a string of self-releases, here the young UK producer makes his debut on Foor's YoSH imprint with this spring-loaded blunderbuss: "Through My Eyes". Slapping with a classic mid 2000s electro bassline, switching from 4/4 to broken drums and laced with a scorching vocal, this is guaranteed to raise hairs.

Review: Following last year's massive "Keep Going" young Four40 talent Little Ant returns with another brittle bass stink-up. With a bassline style metallic riff shredding insistently, it's a riot from the off as Sox spits with danger. Prefer your bangers MC-free? Ant's got you covered with a sparse and shiny instrumental twist. Turn yourselves "Inside" out

Mov Clsr (feat Natalie Slade) - (6:16) 126 BPM
Garage Days - (6:33) 127 BPM
Boo Boo Step - (4:23) 120 BPM
Nano Nights - (4:51) 108 BPM
Review: First he asked us to follow him, then he asked us if we wanted to find to find him. Now he's asking us to move closer... Steve Spacek's Eglo series has been a remarkable trip so far as he continues to illustrate unseen pictures with far-out, unbounded sounds and arrangement. "Mov Clsr" is the steamy dreamy soul number while "Garage Days" unravels the usually tightly wound two-step into a much spacier, dreamy affair, "Boo Boo Step" is a trip into the heart of an old BBC Micro computer while "Nano Nights" closes on a flighty 160BPM step session where lights twinkle and cascade with fluorescent fun. No one makes music like Spacek. Beautiful.
