Review: We are very excited to see what the team at Uprise Audio have had bubbling away in the locker as we check out this brand new two track bombshell from them, bringing forward the sounds of Indiji. This is system music at its best as we kick off via the sumptuous sub-bass pressure and eerie percussive reverberations of the title track 'Into The Spring Tank'. On the flip, we dive down an even more creative route as the subtle LFO manoeuvres and colourful drum expanses of 'Mashup' provides great depth from start to finish.
Review: As a label, Uprise Audio have a certified name amongst the dubstep greats, having continuously supplied the scene with heavyweight underground flavour. As Indiji steps forward for this powerhouse three tracker that trend follows suit. We kick off with the earthy sub rolls and unpredictable percussive patterns of 'Original Pressing' which is an instant favourite. On the flip side we are treated to another serving of dubstyle goodness by way of 'Dubwise 07'. This one is one for the steppers, as delicious bass drones roll out alongside a shower of reverberated snares and percussion.
Review: Hotly tipped emerging talent from London, Indiji lets rip with his Uprise debut. "Darknet" comes with a bassline heartbeat that palpitates so hard and erratically it's borderline coronary. Squiggling and wriggling over the industrial strength swing, it instantly captures you right in depths of your belly. Further on we hit "Shake The Foundations", a track that truly lives up to its name. Demonstrative spatial science is applied as a rich warm bassline plays one-note chicken with the titanium riddim. Debuts really don't come more authoritative than this; we're anticipating big things for Indiji in the near future.
Review: In just a few short years, London's Uprise Audio has made quite an impact as a label that explores the deeper, more textured side of dubstep and bass productions. Here label boss Seven collects 13 of the dopest new jams by the label's impressive roster. Highlights include Seven's own "Get Down", which features squelchy, metallic bass and stop/start trappy beats, the creepy mechanical tribal cacophony of "Herd" by Feonix and the retro horror synths meets digi dub grooves of "Arcade Dub" by Markee Ledge.
Review: Following an impeccable launch with a series of unavoidable singles, Seven's Uprise imprint consolidates its reputation and hugely broadens its scope with this far-reaching compilation. Tickling every possible corner of bass music's expansive underbelly, across the album we're treated to an array of vibes that stretch from slo-mo percussive cosmic bass (Wayfarer's "Reflections") to fractured, juddering beat experimentalism (Taiko's "Spray Can") Every track is a highlight but be sure to check out Truth's immensely demonic take on "Walter White" and the techno-minded riff aggression on Klax's "Link To The Past". Welcome to the future.
