Dutch dubsters Subway have been on a major recruiting drive, building their bass army to a size that will rival a small country by 2014. Here they present four new troops, each of them armed with a devastating battle weapon. "On My Own" is a screaming scud, laced with just a smidgeon of eastern charm. "Zero X", meanwhile, is a militant march busting techno tasers. "Mercy Killing" has the menace of a million drones, hovering just inches above you, creeping on your every move. "Duplicate" completes the set with pure sub low nuclear fusion. Game over.
A couple of monsters here from the enchantingly entitled Megalodon, on the Second To None label, which hark back to a mid-noughties Caspa sound, whilst retaining a unique edge. "Goblin Shark" is all ribbiting bass, tripping metallic breaks and occasional barking SFX, with a weighty bassline adding pressure from below. "West Coast" adds a bit more Skream into the proceedings, with a bubbling, raucous b-line, low-slung sweeping atmospherics and razor sharp snares.
