Review: Hide your nudes! Aesthetics is out for revenge and it looks like he won't hold back on the punishment. "Out For Revenge" is a real rasping bass riff cut that maintains momentum until the momentarily floaty breakdown. "Assassins" shoots even harder with its sweeping growling bass while "Badboy Dubplate" strips us down with a Lynx-style focus and sense of groove (watch out for those amens midway, they'll take your head off) Finally we end with "Feels So". Rising and rising with a white knuckle build the Smokin Riddims mainstay hurls us into another brilliantly minimal drop where singular bass grunts and clever percussion sweep us off our feet.

Review: Scottish D&B rogue Aesthetics continues his good work on Jaydan's Smokin Riddims imprint with his most extensive release to date. Flexing from the madcap strings and triplet funk of "Villains" (think a modern day "Disco Dodo") to the darker, eerie vibes and hypnotic clicks and claps of "Old World" via the stark stabs and insanity-coded riff and pneumatic beats of "Kush", it showcases Aesthetics as a serious producer who understands the need for funk and character in productions. Complete with a running film noir theme, there's a great sense of fun and a consistency that's seldom found on D&B EPs. Essential.

Review: He may only release, on average, an EP a year, but you can always rely on Scottish artist Aesthetics for premium all-corner escapades. Often grizzly and unruly, always fine-tuned for floor flattening, each cut hits harder than a judge with a titanium hammer. "Ghetto Shit" is all about the Tyke-flavoured bass, "Soundman" is all about the classic mid 90s Headz vibe while "Night" is all about the similar era on Goodlooking. "Honeycomb" maintains the classic dynamics with overwhelming sub pressure, a surging vocal sample and classic breaks. Finally "Galaxy" brings us back to earth with a precision balance of reese charged bumps, softened by breezy, floaty pads.

Aesthetics & Upfront - "2049" - (4:27) 58 BPM
from $1.96
Review: Smokin' Riddims long success can be linked to Jaydan's keen ear for balanced tracks, every track cuts a fine balance between, noisy, bouncing, rough and rolling and that means great dancefloor music. This new EP is a collection of co-labs, three of which are with the main man himself. 'Rubbish' is anything but, the aggressive track uses swaths and a stabbing bass to create an intense atmosphere. 'Good A Dead' uses jungle breakdowns in-between more modern drum patterns with grinding metallics and shadowy pads. '2049's rumbling bassline is the star of the EP.

Review: Razor-sharp Scottish steppery: Upfront and Aesthetics strip back the unnecessaries for two straight-up rolling damagers. "Gully" is reminiscent of Origin Unknown's mid 90s output with its crisp two-step, marshmallow subs and well placed (possibly Predator?) vocal sample. Keeping the mid 90s two-step vibe alive, "Nostromo" purrs a little softer with benign chemtrails of "Pulp Fiction" and a name that comes from Alien. Cool tracks and some nerdy film references... Upfront & Aesthetics know us all too well.
