Flava EPEXCLUSIVE
   
Flava - (6:20) 126 BPM
   
Full Moon - (6:59) 130 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
Distractions - (7:54) 131 BPM
   
Buss - (8:07) 128 BPM
   
Energie - (7:03) 128 BPM
Review: Soulserious mainstay Dub Solution cooks up five more of his unique garage/house hybrids: "Flava" looks back to the classics thanks to its detuned synths, bubbling 808 bassline and wailing vocal, "Full Moon" sounds like a Dirtybird cut thanks to its lean make-up, weirded out tech rhythm and sinewy sub wriggles while "Distractions" continues the snub-nosed tech theme but does so with an array of alien space noises and textures. Dig deeper for a funkier jam on the shuffling groove and scuffing throaty bass on "Buss" and an all-out physical floor assault on the future acid house adventure that is "Energie". Welcome to flavour country.

Footprint EPEXCLUSIVE
   
Footprint - (7:00) 130 BPM
   
Clear Your Fear - (7:02) 128 BPM
   
Fractions Of Time - (7:38) 129 BPM
   
Tex - (6:09) 129 BPM
   
Just Tell Em - (7:14) 126 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Dub Soloution gets deep and dingy from the very first beat of his Footprint EP, with the techy title-track combining smooth but dark house music with throbbing acid-tinged bass stabs. "Clear Your Fear" is an upright deep house jam driven by chord progressions, while "Fractions Of Time", can you believe it, samples Simian's hit "We Are Your Friends". "Tex" is the EP's super downbeat jam and sounds like it's been tailor made for the tiled Berlin nightclub, while "Just Tell Em" has a tribal feel with the 'ooh' sample sounding like it comes from Duke's pop hit "So In Love With You".

Boxed EPEXCLUSIVE
   
Deny Love - (8:07) 128 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
Boxed - (6:59) 130 BPM
   
Divide - (8:03) 128 BPM
   
Rebels Revenge - (7:59) 129 BPM
   
Make It High - (7:30) 129 BPM
Review: Dub Solution comes through undeniably correct with number 57 in the Soulserious series. After having already released another two EPs for the label, he's become something of a regular, and his swinging, cut-throat style is instantly recognisable. "Deny Love" is a hard, punishing house cut, and the same goes for the pummelling number that is "Boxed". "Divide" is tamer and a little more soulful, while "Rebels Revenge" feels like its angrier, more distorted sibling. Finally, "Make It High" rests somewhere between electro and grime, further demonstrating the producer's diversity and singularity.

Runnin - (8:14) 126 BPM
Review: Continuing to compound the strong relationship between deep house and UKG, Soulserious present brand new label face Dub Solution. Making himself known with five firing jackers, each cut on the "Contained" EP slaps and shuffles with detailed sonic creativity. Highlights include the lavish bass bubbles and well executed vocal chops of "Step Thru", the strutting rhythm and stark one-note piano flurries on "Release" and the mid-90s house homage "Running".

Dark Hour EPEXCLUSIVE
   
The Utiltys - (7:08) 128 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
Dark Hour - (8:33) 122 BPM
   
Apple Jade - (6:56) 130 BPM
   
Hold Me - (7:28) 122 BPM
   
Body - (7:03) 128 BPM
Review: Soul Serious have pulled out a top notch project here as they put together Sunday Roast and Dub Solution for a heavyweight five track collection by the name of 'Dark Hour'. The title track itself is a house inspired roller, filled to the brim with pulsating sub pressure and subtle reesey stabs. Following this the percussive rhythms of 'Apple Jade' and the garage inspired drum designs of 'Hold Me' before landing on the heavyweight Moog leads and rounded drum works of 'Body'. The EP then finishes up in style with the techy textures and overwhelming sub positions of 'The Utiltys', a minimalized roller that packs a serious punch.
