Review: Brooklyn producer Lil Jabba has already popped up on Local Action once before, and it makes sense seeing as his limber sound tips its hat to Night Slugs futurism while also being rooted firmly in the US footwork style of rhythmic delivery. It's playful stuff, from the cheeky keyboard breakdown section of "Stalka" to the madcap jazz and funk samples flitting around razor sharp construction "Dusty". "Skates" shows off Jabba's diversity with a slower, more atmospheric piece, and "Tea" takes things even further into introspection, but there's also space for faster material such as the rigid junglisms of the beat programming on "Silencer". All the way through though the EP is made consistent thanks to the glassy, beautifully realised synth lines and keen deployment of melodies.

Review: Brooklyn darksmith Lil Jabba returns with his second full-lengther and the title says it all... Grotto. Not the type where Santa sits around and orders elves to do his dirty work, but the type where the walls drip with sonic slime and it's so dark there are no shadows. Some say you can hear the crunch of bones underfoot on the title track, some say you can hear the echoes of your unfulfilled dreams in the breakbeat ricochets on "Cave Painting", some say the chimes on "Hazy Ox" are made rattling chains, some say the deep background gurgling textures on "Solem" are made from Jabba's empty stomach as he continuously lurks in his grotto penning incredibly soundscapes and never stops to eat. Some say the whole album is haunted. We say the whole album is incredible.

Review: Representing the fearless creativity of a youthful mind, Lil Jabba comes bowling fresh out of Baltimore with his own curious take on the footwork fallout on this long player for Local Talk. There's a love of highly strung melodic work throughout, at times as developed as the sumptuous orchestral opus "Maven", at others as lurid and sinister as "Raiders", but whatever the weather up top the beats stay rapid and snaking. Holding down the more jarring elements of footwork, Jabba manages to coax some truly evocative, haunting ambience in the midst of such manic drum triggering which speaks volumes for his musical instinct as much as his ability to create an energetic club banger.

Review: If there's one producer who's adept at making grime and dubstep tracks sound fun as hell and deadly serious in the same breath, it must surely be Lil Jabba. After dropping his Scales LP and last year's 47 EP on Local Action, the gifted producer returns to the label with a six track salvo that swerves between moody reflection and rambunctious grin-baiting with an infectious energy. There is plenty of contemplation loaded into the searing lead lines that linger in "Grey" and "Super Hide" while "Waila" has its own jungle-meets-juke thoughts to consider, but if you want the outright fist-pumping showstopper then "Brass Tax" has exactly what you need.
