Review: In the third and final instalment of his forest-inspired trilogy, Al Wootton ventures farther into musical woodland. "Wychwood Dub" is a mysterious, nocturnal affair, powered by dubbed out drums and steely percussion, while on "Wyre", Wootton covers similar ground, albeit at a faster pace. "Palants Grove" marks a change in approach; removed from the dance floor, its heavy bass and slow drums make for an irresistible piece of electronic mood music. Wootton quickly returns to the series' focus on "Mercia", where a droning, hypnotic bass and stepping drums come together to deliver the most dance floor friendly moment on this final Forest release.

Review: Over the past few years, Al Wootton has become a firm favourite among fans of woozy, leftfield dance music - and this release is a reminder of why he is held in such high acclaim. "Wychwood Dub" is a lopsided, textured house cut as Wootton layers hypnotic percussion over dubbed out drums and jazzy licks. The title track is more stripped back and sees him fuse rickety hi hats with straight kicks. On "Palants Grove", Wootton drops the tempo for a dubbed-out piece, while he picks up the pace again on "Mercia", where tripped out effects are combined with a stepping rhythm.

Review: For the latest edition of the now infamous Femme Culture compilation, HeForShe get involved with a seriously potent selection of futuristic techno and breaks infused flavour, featuring a vibrant roster of artistry indeed. The names involved include the likes of Bklava, Farsight, Talik, Moktar, Ell Murphy, LUXE, Jennifer Loveless and many more top quality names, all adding something colourful and sonically unique to this very well laden table. Our two highlights actually land directly after each other in the tracklisting, with the bubbling percussive pulses and constantly shifting backdrops of SYZ's 'Purify' leading the way, focussing on some seriously intricate rhythmic design. Breaka then follows this with the super bouncy textures of 'Who's This?', utilizing glittering arpeggios and bulbous bass pushes for a seriously fun time. Excellent work all around on this one, with all profits going straight to UN Women UK.

Nine Points - (6:10) 127 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
Last Scene - (3:30) 131 BPM
Review: Next up from the Livity Sound team, we are plunged into a vibrant dreamscape of sonic manipulation and forward thinking sound design as Azu Tiwaline links up with Al Wootton for 'Alandazu'. We open the journey with a cryptic display of dubwise delays and post-breaks inspired drums on 'Blue Dub', which right from the jump gives us a beautiful introduction, based around shimmering percussion to blow your socks off. From here, 'Light Transmission', gives us a bulbous bassy arrangement, focussing on subtle bit-crushes and unusual clinks, before 'Nine Points' unleashes a stunning rhythmic display, utilizing sonic percussive drives and haunting atmospheric pressure. Finally, 'Last Scene' gives us one final soundscape, focussed on distant, heavenly sounding vocal synths and glimmering arpeggios, rounding off the EP in style. Awesome work!

Grounding - (4:59) 132 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
Saraph - (4:56) 132 BPM
   
Doxa - (6:16) 135 BPM
Review: Al Wootton has put out a number of acclaimed releases on Trule in the past two years, including the Witness album, and Callers Spring is a worthy addition to his catalogue. The title track revolves around fractured drums and rumbling bass tones, with Wootton adding some ominous effects to this combination. "Grounding" follows a similar path, albeit a deeper one, as layered, fuzzy textures and jazzy keys unfold over a subtle rhythm. "Saraph" is more dubbed out, with Wootton taking inspiration from Basic Channel's depth to craft cavernous effects that sit over rickety drums. Last but not least is "Doxa", where kicks glide in and out of dense textures, almost at random.

Facta - "FM Gamma" - (5:57) 130 BPM
Review: Livity Sound has come a long way since surfacing as something like white label for Peverelist, Kowton and Asusu's music - the latter's "Sister" a bonafide gem! Over the years it has expanded its roster to the point of becoming a landmark within UK bass music - especially that of Bristol! If you wanted to catch up with what that sound actually is, still fresh as f*** in 2021 - Molten Mirrors: A Decade Of Livity Sound is your port of call. For the first of two parts, it's Batu in the mix with a feel-good yet grubby, junkyard industrial banger "Melts Into Air" which sits nicely next to the abstracted beats of Two Shiel's "Big Style". With deeper mysticisms comes Azu Tiwaline's slower "Nissa" next to the faster polyrhythms of Forest Drive West's "Lost Signal", with Facta, Al Wooton and Cando spreading some hypercolor synths and high fidelity beats in their sessions. And check out the leftfield selection of warped, jazzy breakdowns by DJ Plead that makes for a perfect segue into Bakongo's "Ashy".

Review: In all honesty, we feel that the musical successes of Al Wootton have gone somewhat under the radar, with his consistently impressive productions always leaving us with a smile on our faces. This brand new four track collection alongside the team at Trule kicks off with some interesting percussive work on the vibrant sounding 'Baccata', before 'Alder' combines more fluttering drum designs with a steadily shifting sub-bass pattern below for a really eerie feel. Following this, 'Maenads' feels like the evolution of the previous track with a lot of similar rhythmic patterns being deployed, this time with an overall punchier feel, before slowing the pace significantly on 'Ashe', a downtempo display of introspective calm to round us off in style.

JL (Priori Sharp Tool mix) - (5:44) 136 BPM
Review: As always with Al Wootton, we went into this one with our ears wide open, keen to hear what levels he would be taking the UK underground sound to next. As far as two trackers come, this one is pretty darn juicy, with the title track 'JL' proving to be a perfect fuzzy sweeper, driven by a constantly pulsating synth sweep and some truly remarkable drum processing alongside a heavily affected vocal line. The project also comes complete with a high energy, kick-heavy rethink of the track from 'Priori Sharp Tool', who gives the original a completely new lick off paint with fabulous results.

Review: The Livity Sound Recordings team seem to have unearthed a gem here as they welcome the sounds of Al Wootton, one of the most creative bass music producers out there right now. This EP demonstrates that fantastically as we kick off with the rumbling subs and intricate drum work of 'Ender', a post-garage-inspired thrill ride filled with the unexpected. Next up, the shimmering snare expressions and subtle breaks influences of 'Revin' roll into view, before the stunning soundscaping and unorthodox percussive panning of 'Snake Dance' arrives in style. Finally, the choppy delays and minimal, stripped back rhythms of 'Lerzin' add the perfect addition to a very well thought out selection.

Cephas - (5:41) 135 BPM
Review: Next up from Al Wootton, we see him unveil his latest LP, showcasing his eccentric yet delicate approach to bass music down to an absolute t. We kick off with a look at 'Come Close', which gives the classic dancehall triplet rhythm an electronic update, before the warbling synthesizer throws and minimal drum clicks of the title track 'Witness' arrive in style. Next, 'Gloamer' combines bouncy drum patterns with reverberated atmospheric pressure to deliver a spacey experience, followed by the sub-busting basslines and nostalgic chord flexes of 'Over' alongside the high tempo drum expressions of 'Sema'. From here we then take in the meditative delays and pounding rhythms of 'A Clean Heart' followed by the darkened breakbeat rolls of 'Starlite Xpress' before finishing up with the groovy rhythmic twists of 'Cephas'. What a project this is!

Review: All matter of Deadboy dubs here from Al Wooton, turning in four new echos for the everfresh Trule. Presenting the label's first 2020 release, housey chords wander in pastures of flowing dub in "Operator" with deeper minimalisms and pitfalls that flirt with the abyss in "Teresa". Straight up two-step madness in "Levi" with minimal as f*ck drums leading the way in "Franz".

We kick off with pounding sub-lines and subtle breaksy influences of 'Body Healthy', before landing on the incredibly delicate popping percussive brilliance of 'Graver'. Next we dive deeper underground as the minimalist breaksy tones of 'Bad Sound' leap into play, before we round up the project with a peek at 'Prophecy', another super well designed garage-ready roller.

Review: We are very excited to get stuck into this new selection from Al Wootton, who touches down on Trule with a bag of creativity and originality laced between three smashing original designs. The title track 'Natural Forward' is a breaks infused monster, pulling together some incredibly unique drum patterns and wavy atmospheric layering for a super groovy piece of bass music. Next up, 'Rahma' arrives with a bag of bouncy energy, from its dubby chord delays to its shimmering drumwork, before we finish up with a look at 'Power Must Change Hands', a lively housey number, putting the finishing touches on a wicked selection from all involved.
