Review: The North American duo of Distinct Motive are at it again, this time teaming up with Navy Cut for a weighty two track release. We start off with ?King? which is a stepper?s delight. Pounding electronic subs roll ahead in the bass section whilst marching drums and super swung gritty synths run riot above. On the flip side we hear ?Worthy? which is straight out of the same bag of swing, however this composition is driven by its revving bass synth sounds and stuttered vocal appearances.

Drifter - (4:39) 140 BPM
Kilimanjaro - (4:41) 140 BPM
Monarch - (4:41) 140 BPM
Remember - (4:22) 140 BPM
Review: We?re always happy to hear more deliciously devised dubstep from the Macabre Unit collective and this one is definitely no exception. Straight from the off on Drifter we hear warm rolling subs lashing into whirling atmospherics and sharp drum processing. Next up we have Killamanjaro which is comprised of eastern melodies, choppy break patterns, rolling percussive stabs and of course gritty bass synths. From here we move onto Monarch which is a real steppers journey, bringing out lush jazzy synth textures and sound design over rogue bass oscillations below. Finally we finish up with a blast from the past in Remember. This one is comes complete with classic hardcore synth chords across the introduction, later descending into an electronic cluster bomb of unique sound design.

Ras G - "Gorilla Glue" - (5:00) 74 BPM
Ras G - "Global Shit-uation" - (3:34) 77 BPM
Moresounds - "We A Tribe" - (4:55) 88 BPM
Moresounds - "Deep Base" - (4:36) 85 BPM
Review: 5 Chuckles' don and all-round (literal) G, Alphapup's Ras hooks up with France's Moresounds to share a brand new Dub Stuy release. Ras takes the lead with the silverback sizzler "Gorilla Glue" where aerosol sprays are both shaken and stirred and the jungle is never far from your mind. "Globa Shit-Uation" is an even heavier affair with massive dubby washes over dreamy uplifting chords. Deeper again Moresounds ups the high voltage with an electrified bassline, chiming percussion and rising sense of drama throughout while "Deep Base" subverts the digidub style with raw tribal percussion and some deftly placed bass groans. Send for the hacksaws!
