Tokiado Trilogy - (6:15) 174 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.96
Review: It doesn't get more legendary than A-Sides, a producer with over 500 tracks spanning over 20 years, who's collaborated with virtually every producer worth knowing, including Calibre, Makoto, DJ Marky and Break. Spine is the first track from his brand new single on Eastside and it's more than representative of both his old-school heritage and production quality. Pacey drums kick things off right, a growling bass creeps in underneath and before you know what's going on, twisting low-frequencies come up to bite you; sine waves and sub bass form an all-encompassing, wave-like run of energetic sound. Tokiado Trilogy is the follow up, a drum line characterised by a beefed-up double kick and chin-wagging snare that draw out in the intro and draws you in. When it comes in, the bass is undeniably old school; rumbling, unclear and rough round the edges. It's a track that's eerie in its consistency, and rounds off an incredible release from the man like A-Sides.

Review: Holding Hands boss Desert Sound Colony (DSC) has stated that he has known Adam Pits for a long time. First as a fellow student (a few years below him) at high school, and later at a University in Leeds that they both attended. He is from the same crew as Breaka (Beat Machine/Stretchy Dance) so there must be something in the water up there DSC declares - because 'these guys are producing the best shit in town right now'. UK bass and electro crossover in bold fashion on "Socket Power", which is followed by an eerie darkside perspective by Junq up next - perfect for the stoned ride home on the night bus.

The Polyverse Is Revealed To Olaf - (4:27) 121 BPM
from $1.96
Played by: Don Dayglow
Review: Aeon Musk has nothing to do with the Tesla founder, and is in fact a collaboration between brothers Adam and Daniel Hignell. The pair's aim is to make 'analogue synth space pop with a hint of WTF' and on Sunrise, it sounds like they have succeeded. The title track is a wonderfully low-slung electronic disco groove, supported by crashing drums and crisp claps. Even more impressive is "The Polyverse Is Revealed To Olaf". A truly cosmic, widescreen affair, it is led by epic synths, crashing guitar chords and a hint of Carpenter-esque sound track atmospherics. If left of centre electronic music is your thing, you should switch on to Aeon Musk.

Review: Midnight Riot's latest label debut comes from Alex Zuiev, a floor-focused producer and re-editor who has previously released music on FKR, Cherry Cola, Whiskey Disco and Editorial. There's naturally much to enjoy here, from the throbbing, Moroder style arpeggio lines and camp orchestration of title track "Moon Dream", to the sparkling Italo-disco revivalism - think screaming space synths, clipped Chic style guitars, crunchy Clavinet lines and mazy organ solos - of standout "Soul Train". The fun doesn't stop there, though; both the delay-laden, 60s soul-plus-synths vibe of "Don't See" and baggy disco-funk roller "Nobody Can Stop You" are tried and tested treats.

Review: It's disco, Jim, but not as we know it. On his two original cuts here, 'Ascension' itself and 'Vendetta', Andrem - whose previous work has graced Roam, Nein and other labels - blends disco and progressive house/melodic techno influences in a way you'd never think was even possible, with 'Ascension' an uptempo, peaktime-friendly affair and 'Vendetta' more of a druggy, slo-mo chugger. 'Ascension' re-rubs from Rigopolar and DaWad emphasise the track's electronic elements, with DaWad also introducing a hint of Eastern flava, while Teniente Castillo gives 'Vendetta' a space rock twist and Roe Deers take it towards Orb-ish territory.

Review: Southern German imprint Fckng Serious are back wih label staple Ann Clue, who serves up some moody tech house grooves on "TRIP". With its wonky, razor sharp bassline and tough as nails kicks - this one is perfect tackle for getting weird at the afterhours. This is backed by the warehouse techno banger "Calling It" which is perfect for those heads-down moments under the strobe light. Boris Brejcha & Co. have discovered an emerging talent in the form of Ms. Clue and her strident sounds. We very much look forward to what the Mannheim based producer has in store next.

Review: If the tongue-in-cheek press release accompanying last year's first Apparel Music release is anything to go by, Apparel Wax is a "vinyl-faced artist" who "tears dancefloors apart". There's certainly no denying the club-ready status of his or her output. For proof, check the artist's fifth release, which begins with a wonderfully celebratory chunk of breezy, sunshine-ready disco which has been slightly pitched up up satisfy the demands of house-loving dancefloors. "005A2" sees our vinyl-faced hero make merry with a chiming chunk of '80s soul rich in slap bass and sweeping strings, while "005B1" is a bouncy, piano-heavy workout crafted from bits of another '80s workout. Closing cut "005B2", on the other hand, is a fairly "straight" edit rich in sweaty drums, jammed-out electric piano solos and bustling bass guitar.

Review: Argo nails the sounds of the deep like few can with this EP. Daredevil harks back to Cockney Flute, haunting woodwind that blends with sonic smoothness to create disturbing, eerie soundscapes. Keje is next and it's more of a 2-step vibe, relaxing melodies juxtapose with penetrating lows to create melancholia that makes you want to move, an almost nostalgic track that has a cinematic edge. Dimez takes a more downtempo turn, a floaty piano sample nurtures distinctly old-school vibe, rusty drums and broken atmospherics nicely diversifying the EP. The final track, Scholarship, is a subtle creeper with a wallowing bass, grounding the tune in a thought-provoking swirl of pads.

Review: Auntie Flo really pushed the boat out during the making of this album, which brilliantly fuses studio-created sounds with field recordings of vocalists and musicians made during almost seven years of journeys to the four corners of the globe. The results are uniformly excellent, with the Glasgow-born musician distilling a myriad of global rhythms and musical styles - Afro-Cuban jazz, souk, highlife, juju, ambient, synth-wave, South African house, soul, electrofunk, jazz and much, much more - into a breathtaking collection of breezy, life-affirming tracks. Highlights come thick and fast throughout, from the luscious Cuban soul of the Andrew Ashong-voiced "Havana Rhythm Dance" and the percussion-and-synths bliss of "Lights In The Northern Sky", to the joyous release that is "Cape Town Jam". In a word: brilliant.

The Berlin (by way of Melbourne) based producer follows up some great stuff in recent times for Public Possession, Permanent Vacation and Hell Yeah with the neon-lit balearic house of "My Body Is A Temple" and likewise "My Body Is A Tempo" which is reworked by homeboy Andras (Dopeness Galore/House Of Dad) and ventures deeper into trippier territory.

Review: BERRIK's Modify EP does deep dubstep how it should be done. Take the title track, for example. A tense, brooding introduction slowly pushes and evolves into something deserving of that suspense, an arrangement which just screams deepness, an arrangement where every subtle detail contributes towards a tentative, yet aggressive atmosphere. 'Terrain' continues the trend, with echoes of murderous intent gradually building into percussive knocks that bring out the depth endemic to the low-end. The hip-hop feel to the drums in 'Frieght' inject some movement into the release but don't sacrifice on deepness, as a bassline so low you its barely audible but certainly tangible settles into a rut of good monotony. Proper dubstep the whole way through.

Turquoise - (7:33) 122 BPM

Review: Publicity-shy producer Blue Lover returns to Fragrances with two tracks that previously appeared on Czech imprint Dilematic back in 2015. "Lungo Mare" is bright, breezy, warm and sun-kissed, with picturesque electronics, layered percussion and glassy-eyed deep house chords rising above a chunky analogue bassline and sturdy, club-ready drums. Arguably even better is "Turquoise", a chunky and attractive chunk of bustling tech-house that makes terrific use of bleeping synthesizer melodies, dreamy chord sequences and a rubbery bassline straight out of the electrofunk/80s boogie playbook. Its' drums are retro-futurist in feel, sitting somewhere between jacking chiacgo house, mid-80s NYC dance music and contemporary deep house.

Review: Uh-oh Certified is pulling a moony and it's not a pretty sight. Sweaty bodies everywhere because there's no way you can't move to it. Out of tune singing everywhere because there's no way you're going to hear basslines like this and not want to singalong. In short, a pure riot because the energy is too good. "The Moon" subverts a cheeky horn sample out of nowhere, "Naked Drums" hits with riff infection but bubbles with cheeky rave synths, the sci fi ping pong bassline on "Biscuit" is just plain scrumptious while "Hearts Of Hearts" (with Silent Storm) closes the deal on the most twisted note of the EP; all spiralling harmonics and a strange Q&A, you might just say it's certifiably gully.

Review: Calling all proper headcases! New Dubstomp 2 Bass resident Chilly brings a glacial funk agenda to the table and you're going to need to hear this. "Messed Up" (with Falco) lives up to its name with an untamed bass, sudden vocal drops and strange twists in the tale while "They're Here" (with Evil Intention) is an all out laser fest that fires rounds off in all directions with its eyes closed... But still hits the target every time. Icy, spiky and cold to the done... Just how we like it.

Review: This is an interesting one. One track each from Comma & A.Fruit with an accompanying remix both from Itoa and D&R favourite TMSV make up a classicly Rua Sound release that combines halftime, jungle, and D&B flavours perfectly. 'Gasworks' is outstanding, but the Itoa remix takes it to the next level with a furious display of break-based energy, matched only by TMSV's menacing take on 'Gonman', in particular DE's vocal line in combination with a pulsating, visceral bassline. That shouldn't take attention away from the original 'Gonman', which leaves plenty of space for bass stabs to interject the vocal line, creating a stuttering yet fluid sense of travel. A genuinely unique release.

Freek - "No Reply" - (4:06) 175 BPM
from $1.96
Review: Freek has come out here with two tracks for Morbid Music, the first of which is a remix of a previous Cryteria single - 'Primitive Vibes'. Spookiness on the intro is does well to heighten your senses, a necessary precaution before 'Primitive Vibes' flips in to business out of almost nowhere, momentum driving up from the drums whilst an other-worldly bass croaks and belches its way up and down the range. 'No Reply' is an original Freek work, his style quickly becoming apparent in its pummelling vibrancy of murderous basses and entwined synth lines; techy, brash and unforgiving. Extra points for the horn, which might remind you of Spectrasoul's 'Untitled Horn'.

Review: Cub is an irregular collaboration between Downwards owner Karl 'Regis' O'Connor and Simon Shreeve, who has released under his own name n the storied UK label. Seeing From Above is just the third Cub release in eight years, and the first new material in six years, but it was worth the wait. The title track is a stepping, clanging affair that is reminiscent of Regis' own In A Syrian Tongue. "Informal Beauty" is more abstract and sees the pair drop an understated, heavily textured arrangement. However that sense of menace is never too far away and "Primitive Sleep" is a moody stepper that resounds to grainy filters and grimy beats.

Review: If you're looking for a naughty jump-up release that'll make your mates jealous, Danger's Power is for you. The title track doesn't ease you in slowly, quite the opposite, as an attitude-ridden low-end head nods you into a hysterical bassline, a siren of energy. Adult Conversation featuring Maze is equally no-nonsense, with a gratingly pulsating feel that's hard to shake off. Hell is aptly named; frenetic, whirlwind synths progress nicely into wall-moving wobbles, underpinned by probably the best drums on the release. Finally, Good & Bad featuring Nightfang, the rude cousin of the family that never buys anyone a Christmas present. With its monstrous squelches surrounded by a high-end flurry of sound and a vocal sample that injects some humanity, this tune is simply huge.

Review: Arms & Legs co-head and all round Berlin legend Daniel Steinberg takes up the reins here, following up great releases from the label by Harry Axt, Felix Da Housecat and Kristin Velvet. Steinberg's DJing has been heralded by many, having built a reputation as an artist who delivers serious fun on the dancefloor - he knows what works basically. He presents the moody bounce of "Domingo" here - all thunderous toms, blustering bass and eerie chords. The second offering "One DMC" is a more ferocious affair that uses a fat and dusty groove to power away beneath those catchy rap vocals.

Review: Wolverhampton nu-disco producer and guitarist Ian Sanford is known for his work as Slync, but here he dons a new guise, Dark Horse Disco, with his debut release under that name comprising four tracks. 'Hold On' is an instrumental number that blends funk, disco and AOR/yacht rock influences. 'Wait For You' has barely-there, multi-tracked female vocals, a twisting funk bassline and just a hint, perhaps, of early Prince, while 'Understated' itself has a lounge-y feel, space disco flourishes and a cheeky bite from The Whispers by way of a vocal, with a slightly more laidback remix by Dave Allison completing the package.

Review: This is a big compilation for Bass Legion, featuring the likes of Dutta and MISSREPRESENT on a five-track exploration of jump up D&B. Dutta is the ideal man to kick off proceedings, Purple Punch's raucous opening drums proving just that before a simple but menacingly deceived melody pumps in through undertones of synth weight. Enta's Levitate carries on the charge; eerie and unforgiving, its snarling tendrils of synth extend out into a steppy percussive line. L3mmy Dubz brings Dissonant Oscillations to the table, another eerie number that builds suspense with a cool sci-fi feel, before flipping into package of naughty distortion which effortlessly injects a feeling of movement and travel. Control is equally as pacey, MISSREPRESENT opting for a techier sound that balances out the release well, Mefjus-esque bass notes flicking each drum hit further towards the next drop. Ignite is last but not least, a piece of glitchy jump-up which perfectly balances long and short notes to add in a. bit of last minute funk that lays out beautifully over a thudding kick drum. Get this one, quick.

After releases on top labels such as Me Me Me, Edible and Unknown To The Unknown, he now inaugurates his new Idea imprint with these three bold and edgy cuts. Beginning with "LOVE" which is all thunderous toms and hypnotic orchestral loops, to the lo-slung deep groove of "BABE" and closing out the EP with the soulful disco inferno that is "BURN".

Review: A debut album from Etch on Sneaker Social Club isn't something to be sniffed at. The producer has proven time and time again he can make some of the most creative breaks music around, this time his skills being shown off in a nasty 12-track format. The diversity on this release is just mad, from the soulful sampling yet gully undercuts of 'Groove Control' to the penetratingly deep ambience of 'Outsider' featuring Farrah. This is dance music diversity at its finest and Etch is the purveyor. Don't miss 'Snell's Law', where bass notes underpin crisp drums that constantly switch and keep you on toes, as well as 'Swirls and Spirals', a hip-hop leaning number that bring some gawpingly good funk influences into the mix. All twelve are interesting including some wicked interludes, so be sure to grab this one.

Review: Following on from two Eps on Livity last year, Forest Drive West drops his debut album. It captures the producer's unique fusion of techno, abstract sounds and jungle, and gets off to a frenetic start with the high-octane, percussive "Cut and Run". At the other end of the Forest Drive West spectrum is "Transmission", a deep, throbbing slice of techno and the mesmerising minimalism of "Circles". Apparitions also sees the UK artist flirt with sound scapes and abstract textures, typified by the dubbed out "Vertigo" and the moody sub-bass tones of "Phaze-Shift". Characterised throughout by Forest Drive West's distinctive sound design, it is one of 2018's finest long players.

Review: Having previously released the Atlanta Skyline EP on Nang in 2016, Russian disco/electro/synth-pop duo Hot Hot Hawk return to the label with their debut album. The 80s force is definitely strong in this one, thanks not least to the distinctly John Taylor-esque guitar that adorns many tracks, and leaves many sounding like a tribute to 'Seven And The Ragged Tiger'-era Duran Duran - albeit minus the vocals, as Legendary is an all-instrumental affair. There's an 80s feel, too, to the shimmering synths that are even more ubiquitous, but if you have a penchant for the sounds of that era then that's not going to be a problem, is it?

"Which Way" is a slinky bluesy strutter with great detail on the beats and humanised percussive elements. Many other highlights follow; the cosmic swoons of "Tango", the whirlwind cymbals and faraway loops of "Slowly Crawl" and the spacebound blues and slo-mo introspection of the title track "Strange Folk" are but three...

Review: Dream for a "Requiem"? You're in the right place mate. Jinx returns to his new label Straight Up with four more stank attacks. "Dun Know" sets the scene, all loose limbed and bulbous with its tubular bass rolls while "Original" (with Shogun) takes us down a much more tunnelling 97 style route. Elsewhere the title track flexes on a serious elastic vibe with a low swung Moving Fusion feel before Shogun joins the fray once again for the rave-tinged finale. Pitched vocals, rattle breaks and classic detuned synths ahoy, this one's a straight up keeper.

Review: If this sounds like the work of NYC disco band Escort, there's a very good reason - both the producer, Jason "JKriv" Kriveloff, and guest vocalist, Adeline, were once members. The good news is that "Vertigo" is every bit as good as Escort's finest moments (think "Starlight", "Love in Indigo", "A Bright New Life" etc.), with Adeline providing a stellar vocal atop Kriveloff's killer bassline, pianos, strings and Nile Rodgers style guitars. The accompanying "Dub" rework is naturally a little heavier and more arpeggio-driven, with Kriveloff making great use of carefully placed dub delays and cosmic noises.

If that was not enough, Giampi Spinelli's "New Breeze" ventures into Afro influenced technosoul territory in the vein of Sicily's Toto Chiavetta. Eclectic grooves presented in a consistent format from this underrated label yet again.

Review: The title track to Kenny Beeper's Crown Jewel's EP is a good taste of what's to come. Infectious, flute-based funk rolles down into hip-hop influenced movement that's eclectic yet solid. 'Funky Party People' takes things in a more distinctly funk direction, composed of 80s-esque synths that'll almost force you to get moving, tinged with an acid house influence that injects an element of edge - just ridiculously happy. Finally, 'Let's Get It', which has a mellow, subtle introduction that doesn't stop it from quickly becoming a riot with yet more heavy-weight synths that'll delight the outspoken. A banging finish to an especially good release.

Review: Acclaimed live act Strahil Velchev aka KiNK is said to have been a vital ingredient of Cocoon's ecstatic nights on the island over the years. The man from Sofia offers up a recording of one of his explosive performances there, featuring well known tracks and exclusives alike on what the label best described themselves as a 'spontaneous tour de force through the history of electronic dance music.' As always, the Bulgarian hardware maverick takes the best of The Windy City and The Motor City alike, and all the while adding his distinct magic touch. It's a wild ride from start to finish, with peaks coming in at moments like that of "The Russian" with it's massive Detroit style chord progressions, the heads-down and direct techno attack of "Kink In De Kabel" through to last year's thrilling anthem "Perth" and the uplifting "Disco Transition".

Review: By his dizzyingly prolific standards, KS French has been eerily quiet of late. In fact, "Kate Edits" is the Gallic producer's first release for some six months, following several years spent serving up a new EP almost every month. Perhaps the break has done him some good, because all three tracks are amongst his strongest outings for some time. Opener "You're The One", for example, brilliantly alternates between glassy-eyed mid-tempo disco goodness and loopier sections seemingly influenced by the classic edits of Mark E and the Revenge, while "Le Good Time" is a drowsy chunk of filter-sporting deep house that makes expert use of dub delays and loved-up disco samples. "Heaven", meanwhile, is an emotion-rich rework of what sounds like a Barry White classic.

He's at it again here, offering up 18 finger-lickin' "Chicken Edits" that are far more tasty and satisfying than your average 3am fast food takeaway. Naturally, the material on offer is largely peak-time focused, with highlights including the glassy-eyed, filter-heavy disco-house of "Paris By Night", the wiggling, Maceo Parker style funk fun of "Gnomo Gnomo (Lego Re-Funk)", the breezy Brazilian samba-disco bliss of "Latin Maria (Lego dub 5am)", the sweaty loop-house heaviness of "A (BraziLego Edit)" and the percussive, organ-heavy, jazz-wise stomp of "The Crickets (Lego Classic Edit)".

Review: Wolverhampton duo Letherette are two childhood friends with a current of empathy between them so strong that they seem more like brothers. The Ninja Tune staples return to their Wulf imprint, this time with Mander House Volume 1. With the essence very much akin to their Brown Lounge beat series, Mander House sees Andy Harber and Richard Roberts up the tempo. They're all relatively short tracks which are great to use as tools or for looping and assembled like a collage - using an extensive collection of samples from dance music's yesteryear. There's one very familiar hook on the infectious house of "Major" or the lo-slung disco groove of "Baby Who" through to the melancholic and bittersweet dustiness of "I Do".

Like previous editions, The London based producer borrows respectfully from classic house aesthetics while decorating them with a vibrant and contemporary edge - much like the tracks released on his acclaimed Magicwire imprint. The evocative and breakbeat driven "Pulsar" conjures up memories of the late '90s, sounding like an excerpt from Sasha & Digweed's seminal Northern Exposure series. "Oedo 808" goes down a solid electro bass route and the sensual latin house flair of "Blue Moon Tree" intoxicates you with its shimmering chord progressions and hypnotic bongo rhythms.

Review: The oh-so ironically named Super Tuff are back in business with the first solo artist release on the label, welcoming Local Talk champ and all round wunderkind producer Marcel Lune. The musicality is spilling out of this EP at every turn, from the Floating Points-esque synth orchestrations of "Moon Sequence" to the motivational rush of piano playing and cosmic FX sweeping on "You Can Do It!". "Unknownz" is a more mystical affair that drafts in seagulls and crashing waves to help spell out another effervescent, bouncy house trip. "Sun" brings some seriously deft drum / handclap programming to the table, but still those ascendant lead lines are the star of the show.

Review: Jungle legend Marcus Visionary's brand new label, Stereo One Music, has its first release courtesy of the main himself and boy, it's good. 'Do You Want Me' is the more mellow of the two, clattering jungle breaks hit you fast but they're paired with a sense of soulfulness, making a tune with a cool new-school-old-school feel to it. 'Try It' is the bad-boy of the single, with a rotating, pulsating bassline that flows wonderfully and is just made for sound-system. This tune just flows and flows and flows, it feels so natural and just so, so heavy at the same time. This release is proper old-school jungle, full of constant switch-ups and never-ending energy.

This latest missive is made up of 'Deep Thrust' itself, a sleazy, lo-slung groove with something of a Plumps-ish feel, and the spaced-out remix 'Deeper Thrust', which with its cavernous bass and trippy FX will sound fantastic on a big system during those 3am, head-gone-astray moments.

Review: Off the back of their incredibly successful festival Rampage, Murdock and Doctrine are unleashing a four-track remix EP of their tune On A Rampage. The first is a VIP from themselves that pushes the original to the next level with a crescendo of synth energy, before taking off with their recognizable blend of neurofunk and jump-up influences. Speaking of neurofunk, legends of that scene Ed Rush & Audio aka Killbox are on form with their remix, taking those classic stabs from the original and somehow making them even more hyped, clattering drums contributing another dimension that propels this one even further. Funtcase is the first of the dubstep remixes and displays the diversity endemic to Rampage Festival. Their remix captures the imagination from the start with ridiculous energy, we knew the dubstep treatment was coming and it doesn't get heavier than this. By the time you reach Oolacile's remix things are getting familiar but not boring, boredom being an impossibility when Oolacile's sledgehammer of force is coming at you, a breakdown switch-up to D&B injecting a nice element of creativity to round off a sick EP.

Review: Although there's always been some subtle variety within Innervisions' output, Dixon and Ame's imprint has become known for a particular type of grandiose, tech-tinged house. Props to them, then, for releasing this EP of arpeggio-driven, 1980s style Italo-disco created by contemporary Italian producers. Muscemi and Phunkadelica kick things off, first layering exotic Middle Eastern synthesizer melodies over druggy arpeggio lines on "Babilonia", before slowing the tempo a little via the ghostly tunefulness, robotic vocals and chugging bottom-end of "Velluto Blue". Stereocalypse then takes over, serving up two more killer cuts: the long, bold chords, slap bass and rush-inducing melodies of "Lone Solo Drummer", and the Rimini '84 pomp of the arguably superior "The Cunning Man".

Review: This five-track single provides a taster for s/t, the debut album from Traxx, Beau Wanzer and Steve Summers aka Mutant Beat Dance. Produced in the trio's signature grainy style, it features the baby samples and moody, repetitive bass-led "Toy Story" as well as a possible cross over track in the shape of the jittery punk-funk and scratchy guitars of "Feed The Enemy", a collaboration with Pat Mahoney of LCD Soundsystem. Despite this fleeting flirtation with fame, this release also shows that Mutant Beat Dance haven't forgotten their past: "Funk Groove" is a swampy piece of electro-funk and "Revival 80s" mines a path through the basement moods and dusty drum machines of 80s proto-house.

Following up great releases by Wozak, Aday Chinea and Fabian Kash, the label serves up a ferocious new EP by ascendant Italian producer Oro. He gives us some raw power for the main room at peak time on "I Am Error" following in the tradition of fellow countrymen such as Marco Faraone or Sam Paganini. For something much more subterranean and austere, you can't go past the seething "Jenoma" which is perfect for those heads down moments under the strobelight.

Review: Too Much Tuna by Pushloop is new-age bass music at its finest. The title track's loping, monotonous dubstep notes wrap themselves around your ears, greyish tones stirking deep with tinky stabs bringing the highs and balancing out the range. Martians is more pointed, stabbing drums bring out the best of the bassline, a low-end that carries a sense of anger an injustice as it barrels forward. Reptoid is a different tip; weirder and harder to like but even more rewarding, with distorted highs dominating like a much cooler version of Mario Kart, one that's garish and simply doesn't care. Computer Takeover brings up the rear with lunging, aggressive bass stabs set against a properly murky percussive echo. Moody, yet manages to bring some funk to the table. If you're into your dubstep, be sure to check this.

Review: Raptcha doesn't mess around on this one, and it starts with 'Pinface'. Sparse and empty in all the right places yet full of life, this tune drops down from spruced up drum hits into gratingly gritty death synths, their verocity juxtaposed off percussive cleanliness. 'Dystopia' takes a steppier turn, a Benny L-esque track with another perfectly clean arrangement, low-frequency diversity and tic-tac hi-hats combining with style all the way through. Things get weightier on 'Armed Response' due to a heavy-hitting percussive line and a creative bassline that keeps you on your toes. 'Recognition' smacks of recent Jubei cut 'The Saboteur' with its old-school, Metalheadz vibe, before switching into simply banging jump-up - music that gives you the finger without showing off about it. This is a big EP.

With plenty more, including a tightly coiled stepper twist from Marcus Visionary, it's another one click headshot from the Born On Road crew.

Review: Due to its largely improvised nature and high quality threshold, Septimus's sole album, "We Want a Piece of the Pie", has long been something of a collector's item, with original vinyl copies changing hands for eye-watering sums online. Happily, Cultures of Soul has licensed it and here presents the first official digital download reissue. Sitting somewhere between the jazz-funk antics of Weather Report, early '80s soul, jazz-rock and high-paced disco funk, each of the eight tracks was recorded live at one of the umpteen gigs the band performed around Boston in the late '70s and early '80s. That straight-to-tape approach not only captures the energy of their live performances, but also the ludicrously high quality of the band's musicianship.

Review: Closure: "The End" is nigh and if this is the sound of us all leaving this mortal coil we're quite looking forward to it. A driving distorted reese leads smack bang into trippy cascading bass droplets and a seriously dramatic feel, this is one of Simula's maddest tunes to date (which is saying something) "Belly Of The Beast" continues the weirdo flavours with some deliciously wonked bass twangs before "Funky Junkie" shoots us all up with class A bass bumps then spins us around the room with blindfold on. Finally we hit "Mammoth" where things get woolly nasty (not sorry). Big drones, metallic clangs and another spasmodic tripletty signature swagger, it's another happy ending from the man like Simula. The end.

Review: Three sample-happy nu-disco cuts from SIRS make up the Disco Is Life & Death EP. 'DC10 Disco Dancing' lifts chunks of vocal and the train whistle from Telex's 1979 classic 'Moskow Diskow' and places them atop a Moroder-ish synth bassline, druggy slo-mo 4/4s and cascading 80s syn-drums. 'Gone With The Wind' is a far more laidback groover built for afternoon or warm-up play, but the real star here is 'The Sound Of Music', which takes the female BV's from Dayton's 1982 boogie gem of the same name and marries them to a phat funk bassline and space disco synth stabs to create a contemporary disco anthem-in-waiting.

What we're talking about here are five moments of authentic rollage laced with superb choppy fills and powerful production. Highlights in the swashbuckling breaks chops on "Rudebwoy", the synapse snapping steps and alien bass squirms on "Oblivion" and the scattershot 23rd century funk of "Man On A Mission". Primordial super.
