Review: The Cella team have arranged a pretty powerful election here as they unveil the incredible tracklisting for 'Radio Static', a dubstep compilation showcasing the deeper and darker side of the sound featuring ten potent original creations. The tracklisting boasts some heavyweight names, from Kodama and Drumterror to BFM & Khabs. It's just an impressive body of work across the board if we are honest, with our highlights including the twisted eastern melodies and crunchy drum slices of 'Clarity' from Reamz, alongside 'Hush', a more experimental, higher tempo creation from Turner On The Track. This is definitely a project that would be improved by a long-play listening session. This is dubstep done right in 2021!
Review: Based in Walsall, the Chameleon Audio imprint, headed up by MoJoe and Chemist RNS, has been one of the most impressive midlands based movements in recent years. This latest compilation entitled 'Colours' sees them gather together a selection of their finest troopers, including the likes of Chemist RNS, Aranha, Triple S, Particle and more. We also some exciting debuts from the likes of Defiant and Khabs as well as stormers from S3 Dubs with 'Blur' and Sensi with 'Corvus'. For us the standout track of the whole compilation comes from grimey man of the minute Jakebob alongside fellow producer and vocalist: Rakjay entitled 'Sailor Jerry's. The pair get busy on this one as they lay down some skippy UKG flavours and electric vocal flows.
