Review: BSN Posse makes their second appearance on Defrostatica Records releasing footwork, juke, jungle and drum & bass outta Germany after remixing ghettotech originator Detroit's Filthiest on his release back in 2018. BSN Posse do their bit in mixing it up on this EP too, turning in slower motion downtempo and dubstep in "Magic Portal" to hi-NRG electro and footwork in "Burning Shoes". Housier vibes and liquid drum and bass still in "Southern Comfort", with a deeper, trance-tipped epic number in "Rituals".
Review: As always, Sneaker Social Club have packed something special for us to enjoy as they welcome Foul Play inside for a 10 track LP, showcasing the full breadth of his production arsenal. From the junglist-inspired moog bass licks of 'Ricochet' to the experimental systematic reverberations of 'Dubbing You', we see a real grasp of the hardcore sound and it's inner workings. Highlight wise, we have to look at the computerized nostalgic sub switches of 'Feel The Vibe' alongside the system-busting bass pulses of 'Survival' which combines old school vocal slices with catchy melodic grooves to create something extremely pleasing indeed!
Review: Well, it seems to be every week that we welcome a brand new drop from the Four40 team this year, however this latest drop is something truly special as the veteran imprint celebrates nine years of activity with a scintillating selection, showcasing some of their most important roster members over the years. The tracklisting is vast, featuring a colossal 51 tracks from the likes of Vital Techniques, Mistakay, PVC, Enigma Dubz, Tuff Culture, Earthnut and more. With such a stacked release, picking highlights is pretty tough, but for us the two stand outs boil down to super spooky drum twists and moody textures of 'You Or Me' from ZeroFG, alongside the classic Skepsis remix of 'VIP', originally featuring Hybrid Theory and Trilla.
Review: As dubstep and bass music in general continues to expand worldwide, we are starting to see more and more experimental selections come together, with this fantastic 14 tracker from the Cosmic Vibrations crew being just what the doctor ordered. They deliver an hours worth of smooth introspective soundscaping, with the roster including top names such as: Biome, Congi, Occult, Ill Chill and more. The whole tracklisting just breathes originality, with our favourites including the stunning UKG designs of 'Eyes Down' from the fabulous link up of Bonobo and Andreya Triana, alongside 'Nothing', an impactful piece of stepper poetry, crafted between the wonderful Rider Shafique and the ever-ready Om Unit!
