Review: Brighton's Josh Gunston and grime DJ KXVU (aka Jay McDougall) recently joined forces to launch Southpoint, a label determined to promote local talent and to revive their hometown's flagging bass and grime scenes. Here they really pull out all the stops for Integrate Vol 2 a collection featuring appearances from some of their most favourite young guns. Highlights include the moody late night hip-hop instrumental "Flatline" by Drax, the haunted wobble/ghetto banger "You Chat Too Much" by James Mannion & Bushbaby and the sub-heavy headnodder "Almighty Power" by Beanzo & Filthy Gears.
Review: Much like squashing a fly with a sledgehammer, Sheffield's Project Allout, counter Bristol's bass supremacy with this mammoth compilation. Yes, the second instalment in their eponymous series boasts a frankly absurd 39 new fresh bass cuts. It may take a while to get through it all, but that's half the fun. Inititial highlights include the speedy claps, fizzy hats and taut wobble vibes of "Manners" by 1Thirty, the horror move trap thrills of "Black Missile" by "Familiar Face" and the voluptuous house bass of Mooney's "At The Top".
