Review: Given that he's been active since the dawn of the decade and released countless singles on a wide variety of labels, it's something of a surprise to find that Nutrition is Jamie Roberts' debut album. Pleasingly, he's not altered his style to fit the format, instead opting to showcase six tough techno tracks in his usual fearless, club-ready style. Of course, there's still a certain amount of variety present - compare, for example, the end-of-days industrial motifs, foreboding textures and clattering drums of "Calcium Read" and the metallic, early morning tribal thrust of "Mayhem" - it's just that Roberts has no intention of compromising his principles. For that, he should be applauded.

Review: DJ ZINC- there's no denying he's a gatekeeper, tastemaker and all around musical mac Daddy, this EP is proof that everybody wants to work with him. This aptly named 'Full House' EP see's DJ ZINC team up with some of the hottest names in the game. Jack Master shares the wheel on opening track 'The Anvil' which has a jumping beat and high pitch sing along melody. 'Soup Dragon' with 'Shift K3y' is a fun and funky slab of floor filling 4/4 and features the voices of the Clangers and yep... the soup Dragon its favourite track of the EP. 'Gammy Elbow' includes the musical mind of Chris Lorenzo and delivers a show girl worthy drum beat at the beginning building anticipation until the drop reveals an almost EDM-esque hands in the air style synth. We expect to hear this at every freshers night in the country in the coming months. Other co-labs on this on include 'Push It' with Holy Goof, 'Interbass' with MJ Cole and 'Crawler' with My Nu Leng.

Review: Back in Business is the latest 5 tracker from the South West's own; Lack Of Afro in collaboration with the unorthodox rap styles of Wax & Herbal T. If we were to take the title track's awesome funkadelic instrumental themes and skippy vocal patterns as the benchmark for the project, it's safe to say that the collective efforts of all 3 outfits have produced some absolute magic. This is evident from the future soul-like melodies of 'Take It Up A Notch' to the laid back jazzy arrangement of 'Balcony' which features a fantastically catchy hook. Even the west coast inspired sounds of 'Ride' bring an instant merry vibe with the disco-like composition of 'Cold Blooded' rounding off a solid body of work!

Review: Escapism Refuge has been holding it down on Smokin' Sessions as of late, fuming the place up with some gnarly, hard-shell dubstep bullets primed and poised to 'tear da place up'. For his latest appearance, the shady producer returns to Deep Heads with Hold, his debut LP, and what is surely one of the finest collections of deep and meditative bass music that we've hosted on our charts since the start of 2017. No joke, the whole album is a keeper. In its entirety. From moments of euphoric, delicate electronica (see "Fly Away"), to beat-driven vocal poetry ("Light Up"), or cerebral half-step riddims like "Savage Lust" or "Cold", we are massively impressed with the scope of this piece of music. For the lovers of pure bass. No cheap thrills here.

Review: The V machine cranks up a gear once more with the follow up to Virgo & Duggan's chest-denting Bigger Bass collection in the summer. 20 tracks, all in demand dubs and unreleased set-slayers for Virgo over the years, it's another hard-hitting, floor-focused collection tailored for deep mix chops and slaps. Highlights bump and bash throughout but you'd be mad not to chow down on the toxic bass squelches of "Oh", the springy mischief and crafty score-foreplay of "Home Alone 2", the heavily swung asteroid blasting rave-piece "Swagger Sound" and the mental 4x4 grime hybrid "Back Of My T". Big, bad and dangerous.

Review: One of the most respected producers in the game, Bristol-based DLR joins the new label community with his own signature brand. With a distinctive imagery complementing his singular, snub-nosed signature, this launch release is a perfect statement of intent; "Ghostfish" worms with rasping bassline menace that refuses to quit in a way you might have expected to hear from Die around the late 90s. "Don't Make Sense" takes us down a more twisted path with rising FX and a twisted bass tones and drums so well chiselled you could save a layer of skin of your face just by reading this description. Sofa so good, right?

Roe Deers - "Metal Ants" - (5:09) 117 BPM
from $1.97
Review: Like the label's previous release, Ombra International's third EP is an all-star affair featuring contributions from a quartet of artists. Veneno kicks things off with the clandestine, post-punk dub-disco trip "Attencion Especial", before Teniente Castillo blasts off into space via the psychedelic synthesizer arpeggio lines, undulating acid flashes and extended guitar solos of EP highlight "Not That Way". Perel's "Hildegard" does a fine job in straddling the thin line between mind-altering acid house and quirky, off-kilter nu-disco, while former Nein and Magic Feet duo Roe Deers steal the show via the wonderfully weird, loose and eccentric closer "Metal Ants", a track that defies any attempts at categorization.

Review: Brand new label alert! Lisbon's Dirty Hole crew level up with a killer launch release courtesy of one of Sao Paulo's most consistent shadow men. Bleak, blunt and laced with bass weight; both "Knocked Down" and "Under Threshold" tap into the original foundation aesthetic with powerful results. The former is a real growler with lashing drums, hurricane pads and an electrified bassline. The latter meanwhile is all about the spell binding drum evolution and caustic sheen of iciness. These wouldn't go amiss on Headz. What a launch.

Bouncing Atoms - (4:35) 123 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.97
Review: Story has it that Chicago disco legend Sadar Bahar discovered Ben (aka Cosmic Force of Clone/Creme Organization fame) Spaander's Utrecht based studio, and it's said to be housing around 60 synths. Electro fiend Spaander 'was charmed by the electronic elements in Sadar's funk and Sadar loved Ben's ideas.' They claim that nothing was sampled on these two tracks. There's undoubtedly an old school flavour to "We Are Righteous People" with its funky bass, sleazy guitar licks and bongo drums galore over spacy synths. Next up "Bouncing Atoms" gets the party started in fine form with dusty/live sounding drums, more frenetic guitar work and the mandatory cowbells going off all over the place!

Review: With Tel Aviv duo Red Axes' ode to the sun still running strong; one and a half years after its release: here comes the heavyweight remix package. German wunderkind Konstantin Sibold takes the original into afro rave territory with voodoo percussion and a haunting bassline that will be hard to escape from. Fango from the Italian label Degustibis continues his string of strong remixes as he turns the original into a rough beat version: just drop the melody in the break for maximum dancefloor mayhem. And last but not least the Axes themselves come up with a tropical house version that works any time any place. And thus the sun continues to shine.

Review: Oh! It's the one like Badboe back to cause some havoc on our charts this week, and his return comes in the shape of three tasty floor bruisers that'll no doubt appeal across the board. First up, "Get Your Boogie On" manages to balance a sweet r&b vocal with crankin, Ice Cube-style rapping under a rolling, electro sort of groove. Prosper features on both of the following two tunes; "How Funk Is Your Chicken" is a vintage cruiser, all flashy hip-hop breaks and 80s vocalism, while "Gimme What You Got" takes the tempo right down to true hip-hop levels, sounding a little like the Black Eyes Peas back when they were on form. Yessah!

Review: Having spent the last 12 months sharpening his disco credentials via a variety of re-edit EPs and sample-heavy "secret weapons", Medlar is back on Wolf doing what he does best. In this case, that means sparse, drum machine driven electro/proto house fusion ("Cascinari"), delay-heavy, stripped-back analogue house blessed with dreamy chords and grime style lo-fi synth-strings ("Nisantasi") and Ruf Dug style dancefloor sweetness seemingly created using forgotten old synthesizers, dusty drum machines and a solitary TB-303 ("Priet"). Excitingly, the EP's final track - a bustling fusion of beatbox electro rhythms, layered breakbeats, heavy bass and yearning chords - is a studio hook-up with similarly well-regarded producer FYI Chris.

Review: Clayton, Loxy & Ink are the original Hardware family. Together they spawned a style and sound that would eventually come to epitomise Renegade Hardware. Instantly recognisable, it's roots are firmly placed in the world of drums and unbridled darkness. Along with fellow cohorts Gremlinz, Skitty & Phobia they have managed to keep this unique sound well and truly alive. Their unwavering vision has been solidly represented by this incredible collection of tracks. Be it the Unrelenting march of Philth & Agman Gora's "The Void", Universal Project's sleazy groove on "Dog Pound" or new upstart Voltage's rolling 'Born Again', this tunes deliver in fine style. And as you would expect, there's also appearances from Loxy & Ink themselves on "Serial Killa" and "We".

Forget It - (5:16) 130 BPM
from $1.97
Review: Bushbaby and Zero team up for a one-track mither on the excellent Soutpoint, an imprint which seems to be coming through with consistently high levels of lockjaw bass on a weekly basis! "Forget It" contains everything you could possibly want from a bass hybrid, with a gnarly flute bass floating and meandering wildly amid a loose 4/4 rhythm that blends two-step, house, and straight-up 90s garage. You get three genres for the price of one, and some devastating drops to conquer all dancers in your path.

Cadillac Disco (original mix) - (6:49) 113 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.97
Review: Disko's latest digital-only release is a meeting of musical minds. It features two groovy, musically rich disco-house collaborations co-produced by sometime Large Music contributor Paul Rudder and fast-rising talent Tete de la Course. While "Cadillac Disco" - a tasty fusion of rolling, bass-propelled grooves, wild flute solos, punchy horns and cheeky vocal samples - is rather good, it's opener "Makin' The Magic" that hits home hardest. A smooth but bumpin' dancefloor shuffler with bold organs, jangling acoustic guitars and eyes-closed vocal samples, it sounds like the kind of track that will easily slip into both house or disco sets. Roberto Rodriguez provides the obligatory remix, gently tugging the track further towards disco-tinged deep house territory.

Review: Suffolk's D-Stortion Records are back with an impressive bunch of breakbeat science upstarts that aren't messing around. Take for instance Dominator & Heist with their fierce DJ Krust influenced stepper "Trouble"; that strings section in the middle is just classic! Next up Dominator teams up with Upgrade on "Couldn't Care Less" which rolls and growls away ferociously in a purist techstep tradition. Dominator, again, shows us his skills in conjunction with Invictus; this time on the dark and suspenseful sci-fi beat futurism of "Infected", which brazenly wears its Virus Recording influence on its sleeve and we can dig that!

Review: Pow: Vinyl Junkie and Rachael EC's Ghetto Dub imprint is raising the heat with every release right now. Next up: 36 Hertz affiliate SR with a quartet of raw jungle escapades. "Marble Madness" is an all-out amen attack that refuses to quit before "Armageddon" reveals deeper layers with its spaced out breaks and dark funk twists. "Emoji" commands every love heart and happy face you can muster with its classic rave vocal, eerie pads and sense-blurring drum edits. Finally "Special Ops" is straight back to 94 with drums chops fizzed up by the devil himself.

Review: Earlier this year, Dan Snaith raised a few eyebrows by releasing a FabricLive mix that was almost entirely made up of previously unheard Daphni productions. It's some of those 19 productions, presented in extended and fully-fledged form, that make up the bulk of Joli Mai, Snaith's second Daphni full-length. It's a far more varied and evocative set than its largely dark, percussion-heavy predecessor, variously touching on dreamy, head-in-the-clouds late night house, acid-fired, off-kilter dancefloor psychedelia, bustling Afro-house fusion, stripped-back dub disco, revivalist rave thumpers and, in the case of stunning closer "Life is What You Make It", languid instrumental bliss.

Review: No one delivers like Need For Mirrors. Whether it's Full Cycle, V, Horizons, his and Bailey's Soul In Motion imprint or his own Zoltar, the proliferation and subversion levels are always ridiculously on point... And always come with a cool unpredictable air. Here he's being extra generous with five tracks: "Hazy" hits with a 3am smoked-out feel thanks to its dramatic droning intro and pristine depth plunge bass drop, "Migration Of Meaning" slaps and tickles with his signature off-beat finger clicks and soulful snippets, while "Life Cycle" takes us back to the school of Photek with sublime space-out drum edits. Elsewhere "Bandulu" is a raffish rattler that refuses to lose momentum no matter how many spooked-out FX and textures NFM throws into the brew. Finally "Grey Scale" takes us deep down the techno rabbit hole in a way only the Zoltar bossman knows how. Buckle up.

Review: If you were judging Kieran Hebden's 11th Four Tet studio album merely on the way it's presented, you'd immediately think he'd spent the last two years immersed in early '90s ambient house albums. While it's unlikely he's done that, it's fair to say that New Energy does owe a debt to classic electronica sets from that period. For all the exotic instrumentation and subtle nods to post-dubstep "aquacrunk" experimentalism and chiming, head-in-the-clouds sunrise house, the album feels like a relic of a lost era. That's not meant as a criticism - New Energy is superb - but it is true that his choice of neo-classical strings, gentle new age melodies, sweeping synthesizer chords and disconnected vocal samples would not sound out of place on a Global Communication album.

Review: RDWRK have launched their second full release in the capable hands of bassline and UK funky veteran; Killjoy. Since being one of the launching forces behind the ever present Tumble Audio back in 2012, Killjoy has become a certified household name within the UK bass scene, always bringing original flavour to the table. This latest 2 tracker is no different. The A-side 'Understand' combines UK funky rhythms, choppy vocal slices and eskimo like pulsating square waves with powerful results. On the flip 'Banzai' gives us a vibrant introduction, featuring sparkling organs and percussive patterns which open the doors for some extremely weighty bass synthesis later on. After hearing this one it's safe to say that Killjoy remains one of the most creative out there right now!

Review: Brame & Hamo rose to prominence in 2015 on the back of inspired EPs for Heist and Dirt Crew Recordings, but have been relatively quiet since. In fact, this three-tracker is the Irish twosome's first release for almost 18 months. They begin with the bustling late night deep house-funk of "Trants", where bleeping synthesizer melodies, woozy vocal samples and sweeping strings cluster around a tactile, synth-heavy groove. Arguably even better is the more up-tempo "Hurt You", a subtly energetic deep house roller full of spacey, cyclical synth riffs, bombastic bottom end, snappy drum machine hits and looped hip-hop vocal samples. Finally, they pay tribute to classic New Jersey deep house jams of old via the snaking synth-sax, bouncy beats and beautiful pianos of EP standout "Clarence (Smooth Mix)".

Review: Japan's leading drum & bass ambassador Makoto shocked the world earlier this year with the surprise announcement he'd signed to Hospital. Then boom; before we know it, we're dealing with a whole album. His fifth so far, it's every bit as lavish and vibrant as you'd expect. From the soul searching vocal hurricane of Karina Ramage on "I Don't Wanna Wake Up" to the immense soul of the DRS-fronted title track via the epic ravey uplift of "Amber's Song" and the heads-down story-telling funk of "Fancy Free", there's a great balance of dancefloor edge and timeless songwriting running throughout as Makoto reminds us just how entrenched he is in drum & bass culture.
