Review: For this one, you will need to put aside a small section of your day as we dive into a twenty-one track epic from Christoph El Truento, courtesy of the Cosmic Compositions imprint. Throughout this extended album project we are able to explore the now expansive realms of Juke and Footwork, with the super fragrant flavours of 'HooHaa' and 'Downstairs' immediately grabbing our ears. For a niche genre, this project is the perfect way to explore it's full capacity, with 'OH' providing a look at the more rapid fire compositional elements, whilst 'Cold' brings in a more breaksy set of influences and 'Ydobirds' explores garage-like vocal chops. As we said above, this one is best enjoyed on long play, if you wish to experience juke to its fullest.

from $1.90
Review: No way, it's Noh Vae! The Italian-in-London returns to Modern Ruin with more brutal junglised footwork amalgams. "Nocturnal" eases us in gently with a tidal wave of amens rattling around a steppy riddim before "Pale Colours" thrusts us deeper underground with a heavily pressurised techno textures and a dungeon-denting energy and "Stamina" lures into a deep spatial adventure that's not dissimilar to a Fracture joint. Finally Breaka rounds off the set with a slower 140 take on "Stamina" that maintains all the ice of the original but adds a little edge as the beats are a lot more skippy. Nocturnal crew this one's for you.

Review: This is an interesting one. One track each from Comma & A.Fruit with an accompanying remix both from Itoa and D&R favourite TMSV make up a classicly Rua Sound release that combines halftime, jungle, and D&B flavours perfectly. 'Gasworks' is outstanding, but the Itoa remix takes it to the next level with a furious display of break-based energy, matched only by TMSV's menacing take on 'Gonman', in particular DE's vocal line in combination with a pulsating, visceral bassline. That shouldn't take attention away from the original 'Gonman', which leaves plenty of space for bass stabs to interject the vocal line, creating a stuttering yet fluid sense of travel. A genuinely unique release.

From Early (Fracture reduction mix) - (3:26) 169 BPM

Review: Fracture create some of the most experimental drum and bass out there, so bringing forward their dancehall-eclectic-inspired sounds with the help of Mancunian producer Chimpo was only going to create disturbances of the best kind within the scene. "From Early" takes the Fracture dancehall sound to the next level but it's in "Hard Food" that the rave and hardcore madness kicks in and things start getting a little wavy from there on in. To tidy up, "From Early" gets a reduction mix from Fracture, stripping back the shimmying and getting right down to the bare, bassy bones. A legendary collaboration in the making.

Review: The man behind the deepest MC voice the UK has ever known, Chimpo also runs a very fine line in beats. He's nowhere near as prolific as he should be. But when he does start the engine up, it purrs like a Bugatti. The turbo-charged footwork-meets-jungle "Restless Leg Syndrome" drives like one too. Deeper into the release we strike swaggering, waspy halfstep gold on "Haymaker", we get dangerous on the stark, spacious almost trap-like title track, we hit tribal insanity on the loopy vocal-coated "Bun It" and trippy insanity on the wonked-out, weirded-up "Dumb". Out, bad and essential.

Review: When we saw another release had dropped from the Databass US catalogue we couldn't wait to get stuck in, especially with DJ Godfather at the production helm. We begin our venture with 'Elektro Rok', a somewhat nostalgic instrumental track, bringing together synthetic electric guitars and 8bitty riffs. It all goes very Detroit at the next turn with the skippy drum work and unusual percussive rolls of 'They Wanna See My Footwork', before we finish up the EP on 'The D'. This one is an old school electro roller, driven by its siren like lead synthesis and extremely clean drum designs, signing the EP out in style.

Gunshotta (AMIT thug dub remix) - (4:43)
from $1.90
Review: With his Vapor City LP dropping with a weighty impact, Travis 'Machinedrum' Stewart serves up this tidy EP to start expanding on the open-to-interpretation city concept that lingers over the album. Gunshotta Avenue unsurprisingly is predominantly populated by the powerful lead tune "Gunshotta" with all its limber breaks and atmospheric chord swells, but Stewart backs it up with the reggae-infused lilt of "Stirrin", all cheeky skank and slick breaks. On the remix front, Fracture gets called upon to work a little more club roughness into "Gunshotta", heading for that crisp half-step D&B headspace without discarding the original essence of the track. Meanwhile AMIT whips up a "Thug Dub" of the track that revels in reverb and the space it creates, proposing an entirely fresh but equally valid angle steeped in true roots styles.

FABRICLIVE 100: Kode9 & Burial - (1:16:02) 80 BPM
from $1.05
Review: London clubbing institution fabric has called time on its long-standing mix CD series, where over 18 years they have been at the forefront of the electronic music landscape. The FabricLive series specifically reflected the club's eclectic Friday night programming, which has grown to feature such diverse artists as Grooverider, Switch & Sinden and Bugz In The Attic, through to Bent, Simian Mobile Disco and more recently Hannah Wants or Midland. For FabricLive 100, they have handed the reins to two of the most respected figures in UK electronic music: Hyperdub chief Kode9 and the enigmatic producer Burial. Both artist's work is considered seminal in terms of UK bass music, yet the idiosyncrasies of their respective styles exist on a much broader scale. That being said, FabricLive100 encapsulates a wide range of tempos across 37 tracks, featuring artists from across the globe. The mix draws from gqom, juke and footwork to trance, jungle and grime, as well as a wealth of material that defies categorisation.

Review: Given their previously proclaimed love of ghetto house and its' various similarly minded offshoots, its little surprise to find Glasgow's Numbers crew putting out a "greatest hits" EP from long-serving Chicago producer (and former Dance Mania regular) DJ Deeon. The four cuts that make up Deeon Doez Deeon are not necessarily meant to be his finest moments - though they are all killer - but instead represent the Numbers' crew's favourites. There's plenty to get excited about, from the organ craziness, bumpin' beats and classic disco vocals of "2 Be Free" and blistering "House-O-Matic", to the classic, cut-up vocals and stuttering, ghetto rhythms of "Freak Like Me" (first released way back in 1996).

Review: As Dance Mania continues to bring the goods back to wax and digital, so Paul Johnson's classic entry in the development of ghetto house gets a look in 20 years after its original release. From the cheeky fun and games of "Feel My MF Bass" to "Booty Call" (for all the lovers of "Percolator" out there) you're never going to have a dull time with one of these jams playing out. It's a demonstration of when dance music truly knew how to be rough and ready, with little more than a beat and a couple of catchy samples.

Review: Easily one of the most justifiably hyped men in D&B right now, Hyroglifics steps up to the mighty Critical with three boundary-smelting slabs of contemporary jungle. "Bay City Ballers Club" is driven almost exclusively by a robust bassline and steppy, sliced up amen magic. "Killamanaman", meanwhile, takes us deeper into the spacy, stuttering half-tempo drama that the likes of Om Unit and Sam Binga have been dealing of late. Complete with a dual demonic narrative from both the vocal and the middy bass, it's an instant damager. To ensure a strong sense of completion, the final cut is a lush, star-gazing LA beat style wonk-out with bendy synths, far-away vocals and an overwhelming sense of dreaminess. Stunning.

Review: With an extensive repertoire that includes breaks, house and techno, Sam Binga's switch to future jungle rhythms has spawned some of his honest, his most exciting and his heaviest tracks to date. Sitting in the same unclassifiable field as Om Unit and Fracture, his productions wobble, writhe and punch sweetly around the 160/80 axis and feature a wealth of killer vocalists such as Warrior Queen, Rider Shafique and Romaine. Part dancehall, part jungle, part mongrel bass, Sam's skills are showcased succinctly across Wasted Days with a consistency that ensures the album experience is just as hard hitting as the individual tracks hit the floor. Get wasted.

Review: In a final move within the sprawling vision of his Vapor City project, Travis Stewart offers up another albums worth of material that ties in to the online community he sought to create with the release of the initial album. It's everything you would hope for from additional Machinedrum material, melding soft and gentle melodic elements with razor sharp drum programming, bubbling footwork percussive tones, and enough playful ideas to keep things warm and inviting. There are some ruder moments, as in the bass rubbing throwdown "B Patient", but then there are some outright folky inflections such as the plucked guitar on "More Than Friends". Always surprising and never repeating himself, Machinedrum nails it once again.

Review: Continuing the geographical theme of his Vapor City LP, Machinedrum is back on Ninja Tune with more of his dreamy hybrids that sit at the nexus of juke, electro and jungle, expanding on the groundwork of the album with the choppy funk of "Back Seat Ho". Rustie is in a fearsome mood as he reworks the original into a drum-heavy stomper, before "On My Mind" staggers out with its wild-eyed arpeggios and slow-rushing snares. "Neujack" has a futuristic juke lilt to it, precision-engineered for maximum nag, and then Pinch and Adrian Sherwood step up for a remix of "Back Seat Ho" that takes the kitchen sink approach to production from guitars and toasting to rapid fire drum machine blasts.

Review: After his Room(s) long player for Planet Mu confirmed him as an unsung hero amongst US beatsmiths, Travis Stewart follows up that gargantuan effort with this turn for Ninja Tune. It's a deeply atmospheric album that works Stewart's palpable love of jungle breaks into richly atmospheric pieces that move through sometimes mournful, sometimes dreamlike spaces that hang together like all the pieces of a creative puzzle should. At times the tone is blissful, as on "Center Your Love", while the immaculate breaks give way to strung out coldwave balladry on "U Still Lie". His sense of adventure as intact as ever, Stewart happily follows up such contemplation with the feisty tech-step precision of "Eyesdontlie", ensuring there's never a dull moment across the ten tracks.

Review: Machinedrum heralds his next album on new home Ninja Tune with the Eyesdontlie single, introducing the Vapor City concept the producer said was inspired by a recurring dream . Fans of his stellar 2011 album Room(s) will be glad to hear his signature sound incorporating footwork and more experimental elements is still intact, though the lead track here seems steeped in dreamier textures. The B-side track "Body Touch" however is a different beast, harking back to his earlier hip hop-inspired productions. An excellent single that bodes well for the album...

Review: Following a thread started up with his Africa HiTech project with Steve Spacek, Mark Pritchard shifts shape once again but keeps that hyped-up flow going strong with this five-strong EP for Warp. There's plenty of juke flavour in the snapping beats of "Manabadman", bolstered by the patois delivery of Spikey Tee, while "Ghosts" channels a more trap-oriented beat through which to run rambunctious synths. "Duppies" makes for one of the centerpieces with its intense UK rave signifiers, from hoover bass to gruesome D&B stabs before deftly leaping into a jungle tear-out. "Get Wyld" mops up the mess with a sopping sponge of electro synth work hanging from a restrained drum track.

Review: One of drum & bass' true innovators, Rockwell spends his time wisely over at Shogun Audio creating only the best messed-up beats from a mind-bendingly diverse spectrum of influences. "INeedU" is a skitterish firefly of a track, complete with hyped-up ADD beats stolen from a Rave mixtape circa '93 and samples from every corner of his record collection. "1_2_3_4" features harsher than harsh pads throughout, creating a hard techno blast through the neon wormhole of Rockwell's D&B fever fit. More Bangface than Sun and Bass, it's an amazing mental breakdown of a tune that somehow works itself out into quite the little mover. Be prepared for a scare.

Review: Fresh from his "Hammerhead" escapades on Aquatic Lab, Dave Jones dons his Zed Bias guise for another slippery bass session. This time he takes the footwork formula and twists it inside out in a way only he knows how: "Driftin" soothes with jazzy chords and velvet vocals from Zoel Violet, "Fever" is all about the dense physical drum arrangements while "Hipbounce" is a sonic sandstorm of soca and occasional UKG bass belches. Unique as always.

Review: Oh boy... Dave Jones has blessed us with six Zed Bias album (his eighth album in total if you include his Maddslinky LPs, and you really should) and the world immediately feels like a nicer, warmer place. Building on his deep foundations of space-aged soul, roomy drum arrangements and raw emotions, Different Response is riddled with timelessness and atmospheres that resonate with every corner of the dance from soul to jungle to techno; the slight vapour trails of Dego and powerful vocal pull of Eva Lazarus on "Restless", the gully gospel of "Lost Souls" with DRS, the cosmic synths and rattling footwork of "Just Like Ohm" and the badded up turbo bruk of "Jibba Jabba" are just some of the many delicious highlights on offer here. No one does it like Zed.

Review: Following the success of his recent LP Sundial (hyped by 6Music and more), Scotsman-in-OZ Jonny Faith, releases a new single from the LP, Neon, backed with both a new track and a remix. The former turntablist has grown musically somewhat over the years and with it's crisp and fizzy soul-hop meanderings, "Neon" is a great example of this development. Album highlight "Firefly" gets reduced into a sparse, killer tropical percussive jam by Clap Clap and newie "Revolve" wraps things up with a chiming, organic melange of rythmic beats and sounds.

Review: We're unsure who Walter is, but we do know that this EP is the end result of Swindle looking after his grandparents' house for a summer between international shows, and how he turned their living room into a studio fit for a horn section. The end result features some of the funkiest, jazz-jacked, unique instrumentals he's ever recorded (which is saying something). Muted trumpets, big piano slaps, heavyweight beats, infectious hooks and an overall sense of fun, Swindle remains the funk champion of dubstep-related music. For something a little more chill switch for the dreamlike "Summer Fruits". In terms of an appropriate seasonal release, the timing is terrible. In terms of everything else about the track, it's perfect. Essential Swindle.

Review: Brighton's future soul duo Anushka recently dropped their debut album, Broken Circuit, to great acclaim. Now they're back with a new single and album highlight, "Atom Bomb". Deep sensual and jazzy, with scattershot beats and heavily harmonised vocals, the original is a beguiling slice of modern urban soul. There are some great mixes too including NameBrandSound's seductive slo-mo footwork rework, as well as their own VIP mix which adds a dubbier vibe to proceedings.

Review: Browswood return with a fourth edition of their much loved Electr*c compilation series, effectively offering a compelling insight into the budding international production talent wedged in the various micro genres of the electronic music scene. Akkord pair Synkro and Indigo, Jack Dixon and Djrum are a few of the names that have gone on to wider success after featuring on the Electr*c series so there's always a certain cachet to being picked here. It's nice to see such a broad range of styles covered here too with the twelve tracks covering introspective arrangements, kaleidoscopic hip hop, hyperkinetic footwork-Drum & Bass hybrids, 808 heavy house jammers (Deft's "Breakdown" is a particular highlight) and other forward thinking bass-focused flavours.

Review: We love the way Alix Perez has branched out in recent years. While we used to associate him to the minimal d&b wave that spawned in the late 00s, he's begun to venture onto into more diverse territories, as of late. He's up on his own 1985 Music here, and "Ghosts" is exactly the sort of glitchy, pseudo hip hop sketch that we now expect from the guy, but the real heat comes from "Hack & Slash", a total hybrid tune that goes from juke to dubstep, and back to something we're not really sure how to label. But, this is exactly how experimentation works and how new genres are created, something which is also very audible from his collaboration tune with Taso, "'Andromeda". "Tempest" is perhaps the weirdest and most daring of the lot, and the tune where Perez's d&b roots really come out, whereas "Crush" is a swinging, London bullet rhythm, for the heads. All in all, a much recommended affair.

Review: This isn't exactly confidential information but, in case you weren't aware, Steve Spacek is D-Bridge's brother, a man who has helped to shape d&b over the years; it's clear that electronic music runs deep in the family bloodline, and both have achieved something special over the years. Eglo has been pivotal in shaping Spacek's career as of late, positioning him as a leader of the UK house-juke-bass crossover. "If You Want 2 Find Me" is the main tune here, and it leads with a rolling punch of bass dropped over sparse r&b vocals in what is a truly deep and magnetic piece of club music. "Time Is Running Out" is much more house-leaning thanks to its steady 4/4 sway, but the groove is filled with deep harmonics and hazy, spectral sonic aesthetic. There is also an acapella of the title track, and an instrumental for the heads. Big release from Floating Points' stable!
