Review: With Duploc now being very well established as one of the most important platforms in the dubstep scene, we are very pleased to see them return with another new release, this time inviting Ternion Sound in for three tracks of dubby flavour. We begin our dive into this one by plunging into the subby structures of 'Forest Temple', packed with potent bassweight designs and spooky atmospherics, followed by the robust metallic lashings of 'Up Up'. Next, we take a stroll into the lethal VIP mix of 'Verify Me', which boasts more potent sub flavours, along with the additional VIP version of 'Yellow & Grey', an LFO driven ball of melodic flavours and crunchy grooves.
Review: The Gourmet Beats team have had another fantastic year in our eyes, with some incredible EP's landing on their platform, propelling them to the top of the food chain. This latest four track extravaganza from Ternion Sound is a perfect example of the quality levels we are talking about as we kick off with the dusty vocal sampling and lethal bass chops of '5778'. Next, 'Limbo' arrives with a bag of groovy energy and smooth synthy bliss before 'Ukandu Ikandu' utilizes some extremely creative rhythmic delays for a really original creation. Finally, the warbling subs of 'Sound The Alarm' put the finishing touches on an excellent body of work.
Review: Johnny Foreplay, Apparition and Nostalgia's collective force continues to thrust through 2018; following seismic sessions on Duploc and Dunk N Dirty Dubz comes this precision three piece on Chestplate. Taking us on a perfect trip through the most exciting corners of modern dubstep, the US trio kick off with a powerful rubber ball bass instant reload shockout that is "Hopeless" before getting all weirded out and theatrically dystopian on "Loft Dub" before being bid adieu by "Morgawr" a twinkling rolling wonder that perches high up on the wave scale. Hopeful.
