Review: Smooth & Markoman's Telekinesis project sheds a new skin and slithers into the neuro forest for its annual feast. As always it's a rampant, high energy affair where the pace refuses to let up. "Look Out" punches with serious aggression as Nuklear spits with authentic rage, "Warp" is a rampant fast lane jam which places you in pole position in a win or die space race, "Intruder" is the triumphant journey home dodging meteors and asteroids on every turbulent corner while Eatbrain bossman Jade packs his lasers and joins the fray for "Numbers", a rasping, gritty stampede track it brings us full circle to the aggro of the opener. Devilishly good.

Review: Launched as part of their highly prized Black Box series and featuring some of the best-regarded producers in the game, Black Box Three is a masterpiece. Populated by heavy, intelligent tracks from the likes of Royalston, Teddy Killerz & Nfonix, Loki, Bad Company UK, Optiv, Prolix, Blokhe4d and tons more, it's definitely an LP that'll see you through to the other side of Christmas. Get the survival cupboard packed and hunker down - you're gonna be in this for a while.
Review: Eatbrain is the Hungarian Neurofunk institution that just keeps on giving, the Central European bass place which prioritises naughty music over everything else. Well, their 2018 album is here from a selection of the artists in their orbit and its everything you'd expect from Jade and the crew. The first cut - 'Mafia' by L 33 - has been out for a little while but has rightfully been re-visited here, its Jump-Up-Neurofunk fusion landing exceptionally well with serious dancefloor implications. There are too many sick tracks on this release to cover them all here, but KOLT's 'Harpy' and 'Pararampam' from Agressor Bunx are two more absolutely ridiculous bits of production. Well worth a look.
