Review: What a wicked time of it Glume is having, as the Bristol based dubstep mastermind continues a fantastic run of releases, gaining respect from all corners of 140BPM based music. This latest project comes to us courtesy of the super consistent Albion Collective, who house the official remix project for his 2018 heater 'Thug'. We firstly welcome Glume back with a fantastic VIP version of the project, packed with steppers energy, before FLO gets busy with this trippy 'Repaint' appearance. Next, dubstep high flyer and all around badman Mr. K joins the party, deploying succulent subs and rolling drums into the field, before FLO returns for his second remix, bringing together yet more hallucinogenic flavours. Very tight stuff indeed!
Review: As one Bristol's real dubstep princes, we were thrilled to see Glume teaming up with FLO and Sepia for an absolute mammoth of an EP courtesy of Albion Collective. The title track 'Thug' is a dungeon driven roller, fuelled by lethal sub movements and super sharp drum crunches, perfect for turning up the dance. On the flip, 'Skateland' takes the stage alongside FLO, and it's another belter, jam packed with original steppers energy. We are thrilled to see Sepia step up on remix duty for this one as he gets busy on his stripped back rethink of 'Skateland'. Brilliant stuff.
Review: As ever, Crucial Recordings have supplied us with a box of serious ammunition here as they invite in the unbeatable duo of Glume & Phossa for three tracks of pure steppers bliss. The first original takes the name 'Opal' and stars the title track for the project, working together smooth horn tones and stunning drumwork. This is then followed in style as the gritty bass stutters and to put it frankly, stunning orchestration of 'Feral', fusing together colourful melodics with hard hitting sub sections. Finally, we finish up with the skeletal drum structures and hypnotic bass pumps of 'Ruins', tying up a stunning three track selection.
Review: Now, following on from their previous link up on the illustrious White Peach imprint, we are thrilled to see a secondary collaboration project between Bristol's own Glume & Phossa, two of the most creative faces in the dubstep scene at this moment in time. We kick off with the stunning chime sweeps skippy kicks of the title track 'IMHK', before diving into Glume's solo creation 'Shriek', which packs some serious dungeon weight. Phossa then continues on the spooky vibe with his original 'Deathly Stare', before the pair combine their powers for a second time across the incredible melodic structures and arpeggiated melodies of 'Luko', rounding off another incredible body of work from the pair.
Review: As far as dubstep releases go, White Peach have unlocked a gem here as they bring forth one of the most highly anticipated collaboratory 140 projects in recent times. We are truly blessed to hear this four track polypheme come together, as we begin our journey down under with super sidechains and eastern inspired melodies of 'Buried', alongside 'Ghidorah'. Next up, 'Hatchet' wheels into view, stacked with arpeggiated energies and broad Arabic string harmonies, before 'Pariah's spooky textures are let loose for track three. Finally, we finish up with a real kick as 'Tusk' unleashes an array of hypnotic melodies and grizzly sub textures, perfect for setting the dance alight.
Review: When it comes to underground dance music labels in the, it's pretty safe to say that Brighton based imprint: Southpoint is one of the most accomplished in regards to genre diversification. With releases popping off across grime, bass, garage and breaks, it only makes sense that they would pull together a dubstep compilation at some point. For this powerful eleven track selection, Glume steps into the hot seat on curation duty, welcoming a fearsome roster to the project, featuring JFO, Muttley, FLO, Arkwright, FLO, Drime, The Greys, Hamdi, Beanzo & more. Our immediate standouts from this well sourced collection of sub-heavy sizzlers include The super crunchy percussive influxes of Toka's 'Lickback', alongside 'Pressure Dub', a dubwise shackout from the Dub Kulcha team.
