Review: As always with the incredibly consistent Locus Sound crew, we are once again given the pleasure of enjoying another sumptuous three track experience, this time being unleashed by the one and only Yoofee, we kick start this one with the glittering percussive inflections and grizzly sub-lines of 'Pendulum', which sets the tone perfectly with some blistering bass action, before 'Zuma' gives the bass-bins a real workout with a systematic warbler, pushed forward by metallic drums and stripped back atmospherics. Finally, 'Medusa' puts the cherry on the cake with a sizzling display of percussive perfection and low-end processing, rounding off this project with a heated finale.
Review: Visages has been one of the big A&R success stories of Perez's 1985 Music, and this four-track EP is the next evolution of his techy, hybrid sound. Dark Guru is titled with an absolute gem of a dubstep track, a loping 140 monster which oozes force and sophistication through waves of undulating low frequencies; a true class act that simply deserves to be heard in a club. The rest of the EP is 170, and the highlight is 'Egotrip', a devilishly sharp minimal roller that stays clear of boring tropes and instead blends guttural bassline sweeps with jagged synth stabs and biting percussive touches. 'Yalda' is also obscenely good, as a crunchy groove beds down amongst soulful vocal notes and shuddering basslines. Best in class.
Review: Few producers have carved out a production signature as twisted and unique as Monty, and the Toulouse-based artist is back on his home imprint of 1985 with another absolute percy of an EP. It's just as diverse as the others, and F4DE moves from jagged dancefloor rollers through to dubstep destruction and deep, distinct liquid sounds. The title tune smacks of previous conquest 'Quest', and its hugely complex array of interlocked sounds ooze sophistication in a manner that's befitting its clubland persona. 'Righteous' is a monster of a 140 track and you can smell the blood from the off, as a foreboding introduction leads you down the path of no return, straight into the belly of the beast. More minimal force follows on 'SVP' feat. Icicle, before two liquid cuts round off the lineup; we especially love the deliberate, purposeful bassline of 'Whatever You Need'. Sensational.
Review: Whenever new Foundation Audio material lands in the store we have to give ourselves a little bit of additional time to take it in, with this powerful new display from Quasar being another fantastic example of why we hold them in such high regard. First up, 'Badlandz' gives us a masterful display of subbass power, keeping a minimal arrangement fresh with some powerful low-ended processing. Next, the aquatic synthesizer bubbles and shifting drum stutters of 'Submersible' adds a more experimental edge before the gnarly sub punches of 'Laniakea' gives us another spacey vibe-out. Finally, the heavily reverberated percussive lines of 'Primal Instinct' allows us to cool down as the project finishes and solidifies itself as one of Foundation Audio's strongest drops of 2021.
Review: We have often spoken about how excited we are to hear new Infernal Sounds projects, with today's being the cherry on the top of a very exciting year so far. Having had them as guests on The JunoDownload podcast, we knew this drop was going to be a bit crazy, as they unveil twelve storming originals from some of the biggest names to grace the label, including the likes of Fiend, Causa, Bukkha, J:Kenzo, Sabab, Ternion Sound & more, all delivering power dubstep creations and upping the levels from one track to the next. The entire tracklisting is crazy, but our standouts would have to include firstly the warbling synthesizer rattles of Nova's 'Calivate', a storming original that really hits home on where dubstep is today. We would also have to include the gnarly electronic melodies of 'Gutta' from Dark Tantrums, alongside the more subtle chord structures and syncopated bliss of Oxossi's 'Wyldin'.
Review: Well following on from a number of impressive dubstep events across the full spectrum of the scene, The Deep Heads team have matched that all with this incredible new compilation as they deliver the third edition of their incredible 'Deep Heads' series. This star-studded lineup is pretty breath-taking, with the likes of Kromestar, Biome, Om Unit, Sukh Knight, Synkro & more all delivering some serious bassweight. The tracklisting is made up of 24 wicked originals, with our favourites actually coming from some of the lesser established faces on the project. These include the likes of Mystic State's sumptuous 'Society' original alongside Astrid, which boasts serious 'Anti-Social' vibes. As well as this, the more stripped back, garage influenced drums of Clubroot's 'Harmony' and dancing percussion of 'Traps' from Escapism Refuge also sit as highlight picks for us!
Review: We are absolutely loving the direction that the legendary Alix Perez has been taking recently, driving his uniquely techy production style into the dubstep scene with fantastic results. This latest project on 1985 music is the perfect showcase of just how good it can be, kicking off with the eerie atmospheric sweeps and gnarly bass excursions of the title track 'Last Rites'. Next, the engulfing subs and classic vocal fx sampling of 'Deep Six' burst onto the scene before the stripped back bass tones and impactful reverberations of 'Spooked' touch down. The project is rounded off with a dive into 'Melodrama', a track teetering with emotive energy and rolling sub tones, driven by it's unique, Burial-like lead vocal line.
Review: As a label, we are always pretty impressed with what the FatKidOnFire team are able to deliver, a feeling which extends to this tidy new remix drop as they unleash four new versions of previous corkers. Firstly, District unleashes a powerful display of steppers-inspired madness with his sub-heavy resketch of 'F#cking Spiders' from Dark Harmonics, before Chad Dubz lets the LFOs run wild with his dubwise overhaul of Maes' 'Jah Jah Livin' original. From here the project takes a more experimental turn as Leon Switch delivers an organic, crunched up rework of 'Dossier' from WZ, before Biome gets busy rebuilding the trippy synth flutters and powerful basslines of 'Nilaari' from Chad Dubz, putting the finishing touches on another top quality drop!
Review: For a number of years now, the Iron Shirt Recordings team really have been at the forefront of dubstep music, with their release catalogue constantly showcasing a fantastic combination of fabulous newcomers and established stepper veterans. This latest body of work sees them invite the ever-ready Split inside for a masterclass in dub-design as he unveils his full length 'Dream Catcher' album. Featuring twelve vibrant originals and two well-placed remixes, it's a top quality showcasing of Split's intricate production style, from the precise percussive pulses of 'Poison', the gnarly synth twists of 'Mafia' and big room drum smashes of 'No Escape', to the twisted, evil sounding didgeridoo warbles of the title track 'Dream Catcher', which instantaneously catches the ear. It's a pretty masterful display, with our highlights including the delicate clicks and engulfing sub-textures of 'Bubbler', next to the system sizzling reese=bass action of 'Tenacious Theme' and swampy LFO swoops of 'Amanita'. It's a wicked overall project that can be taken as either an enjoyable long play listen or a pick n mix of DJ-friendly singles.
Vibronics & Parvez - "Healing Of The Nation" (original mix) - (3:35) 135 BPM
Vibronics & Parvez - "Healing Of The Nation" (dub) - (3:31) 135 BPM
Vibronics, Parvez & Bim One Production - "Healing Of The Nation" (Bim One remix) - (4:27) 135 BPM
Vibronics, Parvez & Bim One Production - "Healing Of The Nation" (Bim One dub) - (4:27) 135 BPM
Review: The Dub Junction team most definitely know how to pull together a top quality reggae release in 2021, with this latest collection being the most recent in a run of top quality creations. Vibronics & Parvez team up for this one, with 'Healing Of The Nation' being the title track. What a creation this one is, paying homage to original steppers sound with a marching dubwise roller, combining catchy vocal toasting with intricate drumwork and booming basslines for good measure. Next, Bim One production arrives for a tidy remix edition of the track, stripping the instrumental for an even more groovy experience, before jumping into dub mixes for both of the above versions. It's a tidy collection, perfect for summer!
Review: This year, Fred Everything has been busy revisiting tracks from his back catalogue. The latest cut to get the revisionist treatment is 'Barbarella', a gorgeously intergalactic fusion of deep house and squelchy nu-disco that first featured on his 2018 album Long Way Home. The headline-grabbing revision comes courtesy of Parisian legend I:Cube, who reinvents the track as a sleazy, spaced-out chunk of metronomic synth-pop/space disco fusion with added acid bass and lashings of starry-eyed synths. Fred Everything provides two 'Slow Down' versions, both of which shuffle along at 89 BPM. The main mix is a street soul tempo wide-eyed shuffler, while the 'ReDub' is a sparse, analogue bass-propelled late-night treat full of echoing beats and sharp, mind-mangling acid lines.
Review: For us, there aren't many people doing it bigger than Cartridge in the UK dubstep scene right now. He returns to Subaltern for a fiery four track display here, kickstarting with the grizzly bass drives and shuffling, almost drill-like drum work of 'Stone Cold', a powerful title track indeed. Next, the charming, bitcrushed bass pulses and super clean hi-hat work of 'Choker' lands with some real oomf, before the horror-influenced synth twists and shimmering soundscaping of 'Sweet Doughs' takes the project somewhere completely different. For our round off, we find ourselves travelling through a much more eastern-inspired style of instrumentation as lightly plucked string arpeggios lead the way in 'Balance', adding one final twist to the tale.
12 Hours Till Darkness (original mix) - (5:15) 140 BPM
City Of Sins (original mix) - (4:41) 140 BPM
Review: It's always a good time when L Nix & Outsider combine, which Iron Shirt Recordings facilitate again on this fabulous new five track display. We begin with the war-like soundscapes and grizzly themes of 'The Land Of Ruin', which kick starts the EP with a bang alongside Leon Switch's reese-heavy rethink directly after. From here, 'Destroying Acheron' then sees the pair embrace their minimal roots as stripped back drums host a combo of subtle LFO's slices and lethal sub textures before '12 Hours Till Darkness' gives us more of the same tasty dish. We then finish up with the swampy sound design and gnarly textures of 'City Of Sins', which through a combination of haunted string-like melodies, chomping bass punches and hard hitting drums, unleashes a perfect sign off.
Review: Now we don't know what is in the water where Cartridge is living right now, but blimey! This new selection from him on the super-consistent Locus Sound imprint is yet another showcase into his dubstep-driven brilliance, kicking off with the sub-shattering low end and unpredictable drum manoeuvres of 'Iron Lung', before 'Two Of Us' combines fluttering melodic inputs with lethal bass growls. Next, 'Tek Time' unleashes a stunning soundscape of glitchy lead synth designs and haunting string jerks, before rounding the EP off in style with the crunchy bass exploits and groovy percussive marches of 'Brute'. Awesome work!
MediCated & Jah Maga - "Wicked Heart Man / Roots & Culture" (feat Awa Fall) - (3:42) 70 BPM
MediCated & Jah Maga - "Dubwise" - (3:49) 70 BPM
Review: Whenever we see a new Dank N Dirty Dubz release land in the store, we are always filled with both excitement and anticipation, never really knowing what to expect. This latest batch from MediCated & Gdash is a special selection indeed, focussing on the more dubwise side of the dubstep sound, kicking off with 'Natural Law', which alongside the wicked vocals of Fikir Amlak, delivers a certified system roller for all to enjoy, complete with the instrumental riddim to match. Next, Fikir Amlak continues his involvement with another catchy lead vocal on the stomping drum marches of 'Worser Than Obeah', before Rider Shafique delivers a typically exceptional verse or two on 'Jah Bless'. The 'Metro' riddim then supplies us with the instrumental fire from the previous two vocals, before Awa Fall unleashes a fantastic vocal display on the nostalgic arrangements and wicked melodies of 'Wicked Heart Man / Roots & Culture', before 'Dubwise' unleashes the above in instrumental format. What a release!
Review: Everytime we see Hebbe land in the release pile, we have come to expect good things, with his track record in recent times being nothing short of exceptional. The Basskruit team have unleashed a couple of gems with this latest two tracker it would seem as 'Low Land Dub' gives us a taste of the more dubwise side of Hebbe's character, combining colourful, percussive drum rhythms with subtle reesey textures and an unpredictable soundscapes. The flip side gives us 'Jah Seen Rastafari Dub', an even more mysterious exploration into distant dubstep themes and warbling low-ends, giving us beautifully designed steppers textures throughout!
Review: It's been a short while since we last heard from Kotei, but he is back in full force with this spicy new single 'ICHI'. As always with Kotei's production, this one is as crispy as they come, taking a strong theme of eastern-style melodies and plucked strings. This of course opens the door to some fantastic remix additions, with Glume & Phossa kicking us off with a regal sounding refit, jam-packed with lethal bass punches and unique percussive expression. Next, MOREOFUS delivers a typically grimey rethink, stuffed with eerie synthesizer drones and choppy drum slaps, before Dakan takes us to the swamp with his squelchy overhaul. Finally, JFO delivers a stripped back finale, focussing on intense drum processing to round off the project with a classy touch!
Review: If we've said it once we've said it 1000 times, building a coherent, workable dubstep album remains one of the hardest things to achieve in electronic music. That is something that Mungk has achieved here with absolute certainty, from the stunning soundscaping of the jungle-centric prologue, to the eastern-inspired percussive grooves of 'Yashka' and 'Bazaar' and more dubwise instrumentation of 'Shasha'. This is a project that explores the full depth of both influences and actualities of the modern dubstep sound, which the Duploc team must be very proud to be presenting. Our highlights have to include the stunning, crunch-heavy drum arrangements of 'Spirit', which double up with some seriously cool high-ended melodic work to match. We also can't get enough of hypnotic melodic designs of 'Varzaneh' and heads down, Amazonian percussive brilliance of 'Congo', marking this album as a massive production success.
Review: Project Allout are well known within both the grime and bass scenes for their outstanding compilation work, including their highly respected 'Krampus' series, which here enters its third season. We see a line up absolutely bristling with power as PAR regulars such as Deadbeat UK, Juzlo, Mr Dubz, JG, Dubzta and more all return with some seriously weighty contributions, along with newer faces such as Smodi, Rollsie and more. For us, the highlights include LJ & G1's super skippy 'Bullseye' original, alongside Sir Pixalot's corking melodic composition named 'Transparency'.
Review: Now we have known just how good Ternion Sound are for a hot minute, so seeing them link up with the impeccable Duploc dons for a collaborative four tracker was always going to be an enjoyable experience. First up, they welcome ENiGMA Dubz inside for the monstrous bass design and lethal synthesizer action of 'The Engineers' before the themes shift to a much more melodic place on 'Mediator' which sees Opus arrive with a smashing introduction, doused in blippy pad textures throughout. Next, Lost joins the party for the gnarly LFO designs we find within 'Catacombs', a system-busting original perfect for the 5AM ravers, before the haunting synth pulses and twisted dissonant harmonics of 'Heart Machine' give us a hard-hitting closer. It's Ternion at their best and we can't get enough.
Review: As always with Wheel & Deal, the team are delivering the goods in style as head honcho and mastermind N-Type links up with the powerful production abilities of Sleeper for a sizzling 3-track delight. We begin with 'Dozer', a system-ready stomper jam packed with powerful subweight and dizzy drum designs, followed by the lethal synthy slices and sharpened snare slaps of 'Arcane'. From here, 'Drift' then delivers a slightly more stripped back arrangement, focussing more so on potent sub-lines and glittering background arpeggios, before the raucous soundscaping and gnarly bass drifts of 'Carbon' give the EP when hell of an explosive outro!
Review: There is nothing but consistent heavy hitters when it comes to Southside Dubstar, with this new release from Outsider & L Nix following the mould with some serious panache. We begin our journey through this one with a look at 'Isolate', a grizzly combination of hard-hitting sub-bass and crunchy percussion, before the sombre melodies and loose LFO expressions of 'Desolation' wade into view. L Nix then gets busy with a super-raucous refix of the previously mentioned 'Desolation', before 'Resistance' combines swampy bass sweeps and growling bass punches with great results. We then finish up with the super punchy drum arrangements and well-rounded synthesizer action of 'Night Vision', putting the finishing touches on an excellent body of work.
Review: So at this point in time, it's hard to imagine Alix Perez making a stale tune, as he lands here on the wonderful 1985 music for another twisted collection of heaters. We kick this one off with a look at the spooky overtones and warbling synthesizer growls of 'Ravana', before the shivering LFO designs and glitchy melodic plucks of 'Lifeline' stutter into play. Next, 'Post-Mortem' arrives with more lethal reese bass action driving the stripped back drumwork forward in a blaze of system energy, before rounding off with the catchy arpeggiator flexes of 'Ends' alongside Headland. What a project this is!
Review: Following on from the fantastic response to its original release last year, Tru Thoughts have supplied us with an absolute gem here as they welcome back the legendary Flowdan for an official remix of 'Welcome To London'. This was one of Flowdan's more spooky creations, operating at a slower tempo, which has been completely revamped by the wonderful Jack Sparrow, who takes the acapella and sends it to an entirely new dimension, speeding up to around the 140 mark and layering it between sumptuous, bouncy bass taps and inventive drum work to give a fantastic original an additional dash of magic!
Review: Oh boy.. Three of modern bass music's finest players collide for the first in a series of collaborative long players on Deep Medi. The results - as you'd expect just reading the line-up - speak for themselves. Every artist's signatures is coded deep into the collection; Kahn's unpredictability and robustness, Commodo's grit and funk and Gantz often unfathomable depths and eastern twangs are all present as we wriggle and writhe to the detuned harmonies of "Crystal Collect", get twisted on the tripped out drum dynamic of "Kibosh" and lose ourselves in the spacious jazz-minded drums of "Unmistakeable". Truly unique.
Review: Compa hails from Manchester, but his productions and his sound are quite deeply imbedded into London's rich dubstep dynasty. The young bass wizard is back on Mala's Deep Medi Muzik, starting off with the murky stepper riddim called "Truth In Sound", a wreckage of beats and sonics that is dissolved by the mutant waves of "Noctule". "Tibetan Chant" is more of a tribal dance ritual to the Gods, and "Four Four Claps" turns things nastier and away from the deeper waters that we're used to hearing Compa sail on.
Review: Back on Deep Medi afer blowing their socks off with "Uprising" last year, on this superb self-titled EP Commodo serves up four prime cuts of pressure coming from the same meditative space that typifies the label. "Northern Soul" stalks around a choice selection of minor-key refrains while the bass comes swelling in from afar in precision fashion. "Surveillance" growls around a deadly construction of dubstep perfection, keeping the intensity high with a sound made up primarily of heavyweight percussive hits. There's no let up throughout, although "So Clear" does take a marginally less mean-spirited tone in its demeanour. For true head-nodding gutter tactics you can't fault this one little bit.
Review: Whether it's as a performer, a producer or a label head honcho, J:Kenzo has never done things by halves, so Artikal's debut long player was always going to be special. 15 exclusive cuts from the label's talented family and friends, this collection of contributions doesn't just document where bass music is at, but where it's heading. Each track is a highlight in itself, but it's cuts like the slinky hypnotic groove and cosmic congas of TMSV's "Scorpion", Sleeper's star-gazing, dub-drenched sub science of "Coxsone Dub", Skeptical's lesson minimalism and aggy restraint ("Skavenger") and Eshone's treacle-like dirge "Qualia" that really represent the depth, scope and vision of Artikal. Designed for the dance, arranged so well it works as an entire listening experience, Artikal don't do things by halves.
Review: As soon as we saw that Enigma Dubz had again teamed up with the Deep Dark & Dangerous family, we knew we were in for a treat. This tidy new five track display sees the veteran producer perform at his dubstep optimum, kicking off with the gnarly synth growls and haunted percussive delays of 'Area 51'. Next, the vibrant soundscaping, stunning vocal chops and sweeping synthetic flavours of 'Into The Ground' give us something a lot more emotive before 'The Cosmos' gifts us glittering pads and power sub-pulses below. Finally we finish up with two more heaters, with 'No Sleep' giving us a trippy dive into the edge of a more wave-influenced sound, before the crunchy percussion and heavily syncopated synth melodies of 'Tunnel Vision' put the cherry on the cake.
Review: Now if you were looking for an allstar 140 lineup, It's hard to look at this new single and not see it as one of the strongest drops of the year. Trends & Boylan are a dangerous duo at the best of times, but when you then combine the majesty and power of their unique approaches to production with the likes of Cimm, Youngsta and the untouchable vocals of Riko Dan, you are always going to end up with something special. The track takes the title 'Hear That', which Trends & Boylan tear to pieces, reformatting it into a rave-ready smash, layering Riko's catchy vocal line over the top of a cascade of lethal horn lines, powerful bass pushes and eerie piano melodies. This is one for the dances, make no mistake about that!
Review: The Duploc imprint has without a doubt been one of dubstep's shining lights over the course of the last few years, both as a label imprint and as a general space to explore steppers music worldwide. This first edition of their new '140 Allstars' compilation series is a perfect example of their explosive range when it comes to releasing music. First up, JSM arrives with his eerie creation by the name of '1893', weaving together bitcrushed synths and stuttered drum runs in style. This is then followed by the quirky melodic twists of 11th Hour with 'Immortals', alongside the minimal and unusual synth shivers of 'Swerve' from Crowley. From here we continue forward into the trappy rhythms and pounding subs of Causa's 'Triple Choc', before the oldschool, DMZ-sounding LFOs of Ome's 'Better Stay Home' and the haunted, metallic slaps of Ninety's 'Snake's Kiss' VIP mix. Exceptional work as per from a top quality imprint.
Review: With dubstep being back into such a strong and stable position within the full expansive range of underground dance music, labels like Locus Sound, who has kept the consistency levels so high of late, most certainly need to be praised. This latest four tracker from E S P & Meddem is a perfect example of this consistency as we kick off with slightly trippy arrangement of the title track 'Retrospect', kicking us off with a bit of an unorthodox bang. The eerie flavours continue next as the emptive strings and swampy sub warbles of E S P's 'Keep Searching' drift into earshot, followed by Meddem's 'Softwax', a minimal yet powerful original, focussing on abstract percussive pushes and serious subweight. Finally, 'Stars combines more interesting rhythmic switch ups and an acidic synthesizer pulse throughout to put an aquatic feel into this fizzing finale.
Review: As ever, the consistency and A&R skillsets of the Albion Collective team ring very true in this one as we are greeted by Yoofee, who delivers three system ready chompers. We begin with the vibrant rhythmic displays and colourful drum skips of 'Seek & Move', a throwback, marching goliath. Next, 'Janker' arrives with a much more demonic vibe, combining gnarly sub punches with eerie, high ended melodic flutters to really unleash those devilish tones. Finally, 'Make You Believe' gives us one hell of a finale, combining delicate ascending arpeggiators with shuffling drums and molten subs below. A wicked selection to say the least!
Review: Now this sure is a tasty link up as we welcome the top quality combination stylings of both Numa Crew and Riko Dan, two veterans in their respective scenes, delivering banger after banger for years. The track itself takes the name 'Babylon' and is a certified rave-ready roller, driven by Numa Crew's incredibly crisp instrumental triplet structure, dripping in sub heavy sauce and bouncy clap energy. This base provides the perfect platform for Riko to unleash his lethal patois flows, making this one a must have for any 140 DJ!
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: Next up on the innovative sounds of Inspected, we see them welcome the wonderful sounds of Skope across five depthy originals, exploring everything within the deep and dangerous realms of dubstep in 2020. We begin with 'Jaded', a truly mind blowing piece of sound design, from the shimmering reverberations and emotive atmospheric melodies to the organic drum snaps that follow. Next, 'Circuit' sees us visit a more tearout realm, dripping in reesey sauce throughout, before the wonky, funk-inspired bass melodies of 'Low Focus' deliver a goliath-sized bite of half-time magnificence. Finally, the lethal bass experiments of 'Hoops' make ready to turn dances to dust before the skippy, UKG-inspired drum textures of 'Wanderer' sees us out in style. Excellent work!
Review: The team behind the Iron Shirt Recordings imprint have been on fire of late, with their catalogue constantly improving with incredible new releases, such as this powerful album from Internal Frequency by the name of 'Oasis'. A dubstep album is never an easy thing, variation is key, as is a sense of direction and movement, both of which are features that throughout the very heart of this selection. From the ethereal vocal textures of 'Lift The Veil', to the raucous synthesizer action of 'Sidewinder' to the percussive brilliance of 'Gaia', this project covers so much ground, it's quite remarkable. The quality levels are extremely high and each track runs as a solid standalone, but even better in the long play format we feel this album was intended for. For us, the clear highlights include the aquatic atmospheric textures of 'Lucid Dreams', the eastern inspired melodics of 'Mirage' and of course the powerful synthesis of 'Illusion'.
Review: It's always good to see new music from Cam Lasky, who here lands on Kwaioto for the second volume of 'Carnivores', featuring three vibrant original stepper creations. We begin with the epic orchestration and feature-film like instrumentation of 'Forbidden Fruit', which come the drop descends into a haunted roller, before the shimmering percussive influxes and electrifying bass tones of 'Brute Cave' roll into play. Finally, the clinking rhythms and crunchy textures of 'Reproductive Abyss' see us out in style, putting the finishing touches on an extremely forward thinking dubstep project from Mr. Lasky.
Review: Also known as Germany's Next Top Wobble, Bukez Finezt has taken things next level with "Under Control". Hyped across the board (from deep heads to tear-out boys) as one of the key releases of 2014 so far, this sub-saturated swagger-jam has an ability to sing to all corners of the ever-fractured dubstep floor. Want to go deeper again? Head for "You Don't Belong Here". Wonkier than a wooden legged pirate with gout, it's peppered with spooked SFX and a bass tone so ominous it could raise the Devil himself, Bukez clearly has a dark, dark mind! Finally we hit "Pace Yourself". A percussive hype track with a very cheeky horn sample, all manner of madness has been coded into the vast space between the elements. Minimalist chaos anyone?
