Drums From The West - (4:55) 127 BPM

Ah Bon - (4:16) 57 BPM
Review: Alongside the likes of Peverlist, Asusu and Kowton, it's arguable Hodge and Simo Cell that you would quote next as Livity Sound mainstays. The duo, in collaborative form, have been handed the honour of delivering the influential Bristol label with its 50th catalogued release. Be it presenting fiercely imaginative and upfront club bangers next to dancehall-inspired, 100BPM heavy hitters, the EP drifts into weightless grime territory with sprinkles of technicolour via "You Think Too Much". Staccato industrial techno rears its head in the title track, with "Medusa" a sweet tripper next to the percussive and heavy rave sounds of "Ah Bon". Go west.

Ido Plumes - "Albeit" - (6:41) 140 BPM
Surgeons Girl - "Grass Labyrinth" - (4:57) 135 BPM
Review: With the swift tempos, experimental beatmaking and leftfield club styles of Livity Sound a decade in the making now, Molten Mirrors Part 2 further champions friends and family of the influential Bristol label. With Pev & Kowton holding it down with an edgier dub techno experimentalism in "Exhale", Bruce explores the nether regions of futuristic and industrial rave with "Just Getting On With It", while Hodge brightens things up with the positive reinforcement of his melodic breakbeats in "Do What You Need To Do". Livity Sound's French quarter gets its inspirations from Toma Kami's middle-eastern motifs and funnelled jungle beats in "Sixty Frames", next to the rhythmic and deconstructed sound design of Simo Cell's "El Gato Loco". Tripped-out after hour numbers come through Ido Plumes's "Albeit" alongside some broken beat techno from Jurango and some live synth renditions by Livity Sound newcomer Surgeons Girl. And for the extra wildcard touch, check out Kouslin's lurking "Racket".

TEOE Remixes #3
Hegel Dialect (UNKLE Reconstruction) - (8:11) 124 BPM Hot
Constructive Ambiguity (Hodge remix) - (5:52) 136 BPM
Deep Fields Of Liars (DJ Nature remix) - (9:52) 130 BPM
Review: A legend in the house to be spoken in the same sentence as Ed Rush, Optical, Zinc and Roni Size, Bristol's own Krust takes it strangeways on Crosstown Rebels - and the label's third installment of album remixes. Diving back into that deep and hopeful sound of '90s drum and bass, breakbeat and soul is a rare UNKLE remix of "Hegel Dialect", that like Hodge's remake of "Constructive Ambiguity" lifts its inspiration of course from the halcyon days of hardcore, jungle and rave with ghostly atmospheres to boot. With a most fitting wildcard entrant to cap off this great remix series - that has so far included Masters At Work, Four Tet, Damian Lazarus, Batu, Calibre, LCY and Flynn - sweet New Yorkian house vibes and ambient percussion come through in DJ Nature's remix of "Deep Fields Of Liars". Krust & Crosstown equals result!

Review: We now get stuck into some futuristic percussive persuasions as we take a look at the latest compilation from Wisdom Teeth, bringing together some of the most forward thinking electronic musicians active today. Chevel kicks us off with 'TailWind', Before the clean percussive rolls of Alex Coulton's 'Radiance' and K-Lone's 'Broke' take centre stage. Acre then gets crazy on the synthesis with 'Don't Get Me Started' and Etch gets swampy on 'Toxin', before Hodge's 'X' provides us with some futuristic tech treats. We then round up the EP in style with two belters, as Wen supplies the eerie fire on 'Late Night' and Facta strips it back to bass and drums in the vibrancy of 'Poliwhirl'.

Ishan Sound/Hodge - "C5" - (4:46) 130 BPM Hot
Ishan Sound/Muttley - "Still Smoking" - (4:22) 140 BPM
Review: Bristol bass imprint Tectonic is run by dubstep legend Pinch and returns with more dark side, low-end extremities to truly push the threshold. It is mainly about the Young Echo affiliated Ishan Sound here, who on "C5" collaborates with local scene hero Hodge for a moody downbeat affair, featuring spooky horror movie synth textures over booming kicks and trap snares. He then joins forces with the affectionately known Alex Muttley - a rising star on the local scene who lends his studio talents to the equally compelling "Still Smoking". Featuring more grime elements this time around, for this wobby and splintered basement jam that's guaranteed to get some lighters up in the air.

Review: Jake Martin aka Hodge has been releasing on Berceuse Heroique since 2014, but Beneath Two Moons is his most clubby release yet for the label. It comes after Hodge's off the wall experiments with Peder Mannerfelt, and feels like the Bristol producer is happy to go down the dance floor route with renewed vigour. The title track is a robust tribal affair, with cymbals crashing and droning sounds rising up through the ether, while on "There is a Storm Coming", he uses an ominous bass in tandem with waves of nightmarish synths to create the effect that the track's title suggests. "Don't Holds Your Breath" is by contrast, deeper and more frazzled - a bit like The Cyclist's Buz Ludzha side project- while Hodge finishes this masterful release back where he began, with the swirling, evocative ambient of "All is not Lost".

Swing For The Fences - (5:22) 128 BPM Hot
Aomame - (5:39) 128 BPM
Medway - (5:32) 120 BPM
Review: Following his release for Peder Mannerfelt's label, Hodge presents a different approach on Hemlock. Last seen on the label back in 2015, this three-track release puts a focus squarely on techno. The title track is built on robust, steely drums, subtle filters and some background effects. In contrast, "Anomame" is an atmospheric affair that rides melancholic melody sequences and a lithe Detroit rhythm, while on "Medway", the Bristol producer offers a third variant. Slower and more experimental sounding - thanks to percussion that sounds like a shack door banging in a storm - its creeping acid and eerie synths ride a minimal, stepping rhythm. It proves again why the UK producer is so respected.

Review: Bristol's Hodge is back for some more interesting takes on techno and experimental electronics, following up that great collaboration with Randomer a few months ago on dnuoS ytiviL. The long intro for the textured, atmospheric and suspense filled title track soon gives way to a powerful and gutsy stomp. "A Break In the Building" is a dark ambient journey powered by the same 80's style angel choir synth preset used on his last release for Berceuse Heroique earlier in the year, while on "Personality Shift" Hodge turns his focus to creating Raster-Noton style ambient bleep business. The great video art shown in the music video for this very track is also present on the cover art of the EP.

Second Freeze/Simple As
Second Freeze - (6:00) 128 BPM Hot
Simple As - (5:40) 125 BPM
Review: Speak to anyone on the Bristol scene, and they'll happily tell you that Jacob Martin AKA Hodge is willing to open his studio doors to almost any like-minded soul. His latest collaborator is the similarly productive Randomer, fresh from inspired outings on Clone Basement Series and Dekmantel UFO Series. There's a real energy about A-side "Second Freeze", which slowly builds on waves of punchy, polyrhythmic percussion and creepy noises, before bringing in a similarly bold and speaker-hugging bassline. The talented duo goes ever further in this African-influenced direction of thrillingly percussive flipside "Simple As", where additional drum hits pepper a dense, polyrhythmic groove. It's one of the best drum records we've heard this year, and that's saying something.

Review: Famously pushing for a vinyl only approach, London's Berceuse Heroique has now gone digital too, which is great news for all our non-wax DJ's over here, and our home listeners. Bristolian bass heavyweight Hodge returns to BH after a series of strong appearances for the label, and it looks like he's gone fully techno this time with the driving "Burned Into Memory". "He Woke In Darkness" sees him return to his grassroots, where spacey synths meet sparse beats. This is a fine follow-up to his recent Livity Sound 12".

Review: After Livity Sound established itself as a self-contained affair originally centred around Pev, Kowton and Asusu, it was intriguing to see the net widen with the introduction of the Ytivil Dnuos sublabel as a place for likeminded, fresh talent to reside. After the previous Livity Sound original and remix compilations, now the 'reverse' label has its own collection, bringing focus on a host of producers who are now reaching notoriety in their own right. From the recent thrill of Simo Cell to Hodge's first outing on the imprint, via Bruce, Batu and Alex Coulton, this is as strong a statement of cutting edge UK soundsystem electronics as you could wish for.

Review: Ahead of the release of the Ytivil Dnuos compilation, Peverelist has opted to turn out a 12" that revisits two tracks from the recent past and sheds some fresh light on them. The label boss himself takes "Amor Fati" by Hodge to task, and turns out a delicately poised but satisfyingly weighty version replete with twinkling synth lines and jagged rhythmic incantations. Hodge meanwhile gets to have some fun with Bruce's "Tilikum", and weaves an emotional techno variation out of the component parts that stands amongst his most impassioned works to date, thanks in no small part to the heart-rending sweeps of chord that blanket the peak of the track.

Across the four tracks his rough and tumble approach to bass-infused techno dynamics holds court with confidence, as "Blood Moon" throws down dramatic grime strings over clattering drums and "I Don't Recognise You Lately" turns out a melancholic chime pattern embellished with tightly coiled slithers of percussion. "Recall" edges towards nervy blips and gargantuan claps, while "Tail Of The Snake" summons up tribal incantations in an uneasy UK twist on minimal techno.

You Better Lie Down
You Better Lie Down - (5:13) 126 BPM Hot
Exodus Blue - (5:56) 120 BPM
Return To The East - (1:50) 148 BPM
Review: After vinyl crushers for Tempa, Hotline, and Dnuos Ytivil, Hodge's dancefloor experiments find a welcome home in Berceuse Heroique with the quite excellent You Better Lie Down. There's a humidity apparent on both the title track and "Exodus Blue", and the former is perhaps Hodge's most focussed production to date. Its sole purpose, to mess up the dance, is executed with razor like precision. "Exodus Blue" comes from a murkier place, with strange textures rubbing up against piston-style drum sounds in a manner similar to Jam City. Space is found for Hodge to forgo the dancefloor completely with the brief, beatless outerlude "Return To The East" which sounds as if he's sampled the Tardis!

Review: Back in 2010, Peverelist's Punch Drunk label released the Worth The Weight compilation, a collection of hard to find classics from Bristol's dubstep scene. In the years that have passed, dubstep has mutated, and so has Punch Drunk, with the classic dubstep sound giving way to something equally as likely to feature elements of house, techno and experimental music. It's this direction explored in the Worth The Weight Vol. 2: From The Edge, a 12-track compilation featuring tracks from the city and beyond. While Hodge and Tessela represent swung house and techno hybrids, Bass Clef and Ekoplekz are on hand to provide some strange analogue deviations, while Kahn and Zhou represent the city's Young Echo collective. With Pev himself, Andy Mac and Kowton delivering a remix of the classic "Roll With The Punches", this is an essential compilation for anyone with even a passing interest in the past few years of bass-centric UK music.

Amor Fati
Amor Fati - (6:12) 126 BPM Hot
Renegades - (6:18) 83 BPM
Played by: Paul Mac
Review: Livity Sound's offshoot imprint goes digital and sees a first chance to own the binary versions of Jacob 'Hodge' Martin's now classic Amor Fati single, featuring two hi-octane rollers that see him further rough up his sound for the dance. There's an exotic thread at the core of both tracks, with the title track in particular ramping up the tension with an ostentatious breakdown that loops a vocal cry over tumbling percussion before dropping down into a magnificently limber bass led throwdown. "Renegades" has something of a calypso tone to its looping synth line and snagging drums, maximising on a powerful deployment of the soca break when the drop comes but keeping everything shot through with that futuristic Livity malaise.

Holographic Prose EP
Holographic Prose - (5:46) 123 BPM
Pressure - (5:47) 126 BPM Hot
Monster - (4:20) 130 BPM
Slowing Behaviour - (7:26)
Review: Despite the fact that his stock has risen quickly in and beyond Bristol, not least through his work in Outboxx, Hodge has been selective and patient about releasing his music with just his fifth EP to date surfacing here on Well Rounded. It's a sign that he is still broadening as an artist, and certainly "Holographic Prose" speaks to that perspective with its cyclical synth lines and subtle staccato beats calling to mind krautrock more than the swinging, garage infusions he was first appearing with. "Pressure" too delves into a twitchy mindset that seeks to be singular even if it pops off a little less rigidly than its predecessor. "Monster" however slows down into a dub-infused lurch, while "Slowing Behaviour" maintains that angle and heads into thoughtful house of a worn-out nature.

Turmoil (Kowton remix) - (5:37)
Played by: HxdB
Review: Bristol's fresh-faced house progenitor Jacob Martin spreads his wings on this EP, making a clear distinction from the more laconic Outboxx material he jointly creates. There's a refreshing rudeness at work on the sub of "Tonda", while the drum programming comes in at nifty angles without ever peaking too far away from the moodiness of the outset. Likewise "Dusted" is a po-faced exercise in bass placement and minimal distractions, using the tails of select sounds to feed into a taut atmosphere in a style reminiscent of Kowton, the chosen remixer for this single. "Turmoil" in its original form does the nasty with some micro house chops re-contextualised amidst a rolling broken beat, while Kowton does the damage by focusing on a mammoth kick note and then feeding nervy strings into the mix.
