Review: Bear Fresh has been unstoppable in 2014, delivering a strong run of releases covering the groovier echelons of funky through to the deeper strains of bass music. Howson's Groove debuted on the Chasing Unicorns label earlier this year and this second release, a garage-laced, bass-heavy EP of moody, stepping house tracks comes fitted with a darker Dosage remix of the spritely title-track. The EP's final track, "One", straddles the divide between both attitudes with grimy melodies offset by summery vocals.

My Mind (Pelikann remix) - (4:34) 128 BPM
Review: Barnsley's finest bass producer Brent Kilner has been talking recently about switching to a brand new sound, so the My Mind EP might just be your last chance to catch him killing it before he moves on. If they are his last bass tracks, he's bowing out it style, delivering the raucous and breaky 4x4/jump up hybrid "My Mind" and the deep and moody wobbler "Boomstick". The title track also gets remixed into some doomy dubstep by Pelikan and turned into an otherworldly bass assault by Kiri.

Klaue & Tatze (Scullious remix) - (4:48) 128 BPM
   
Bringing It (Dosage remix) - (5:24) 127 BPM
Review: Austrian duo Klaue & Tatze make their debut on Bear Fresh and the result is an instant flex back to garage's mid-90s golden era where bold soulful vocals and funky grooves ruled the roost. With heat steaming from every organ lick and bass drop, it's an instant floor-strutter. Remix-wise Scullious adds subversive, sludgy bass tones while Dosage adds more beef to the beats and polishes up the organ licks nicely. Euphoric soul throughout. Bring it down? Bring it up more like!

Harem (Dosage remix) - (5:15)
Played by: Mr Brainz, Usurp, Klient
Review: Big, beautiful and bouncy aren't usually words that describe garage-influenced deep house, but that's exactly what the original version of "Harem" is. The brainchild of Klient aka Mr Beeb and Fault Lines, it's a sincere nod towards those grimy garage days while remaining crispy clean and ready for the present. With a Scullious-esque gritty house remix and a deeper, darker take from Dosage on the other side, this is a must for anyone on a mixed electronic/house/garage tip. As the old saying goes, some two-step a day helps you work, rest and play.

Hit You Up (Crown Duels remix) - (3:42) 140 BPM
Review: Here we have two new sizzling bass bangers from Bristol's future garage hero James Mannion. He doesn't pull any punches either, with "Come Down" featuring growling bass, ghetto beats and catchy synth riffs, and the sparse title track featuring harpsichord style melodies and a hip-house style rap. Remix-wise, PVC presents some skippy, wobbly 2-step, and Crown Duels delivering the jewel in the EPs crown - a schizophrenic, hybrid of scattered beats, stop/start rhythms, eccentric bass and, of course, that rap.

Review: Very little is known about Mirrim, so it's a good thing that this EP is so good. Here Bear Fresh present two tracks of stunning imagination - "And I Wish" is a heartstring-tugging slice of cloudlike urban dream pop, with big, misty synth melodies and anthemic vocals. It also gets turned into sci-fi 2-step by Vern & Milla, and dubby garage by Hatchin & Prospera. "Between Places" meanwhile, plows a more tech house route with extra deep goodness.

The Mask (PVC remix) - (4:53) 133 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: "Bring On The Trumpets" sees UK south coast producer Pelikann fusing aspects of trap with dark garage beats and dubstep basslines to create a hybrid that's so heavy you'll need to go on a diet after digesting it. Remix-wise Archive sticks on extra pounds by supersizing the bass tears and making the kicks even chunkier. "The Mask" takes more of a tech approach with a dynamic uncompromising, unrelenting rhythm, a deep space drop and twisted spoken word sample. Looking for a two-step twist? Jump on PVC's remix. Grizzly.

Scarface (Onza remix) - (4:23) 124 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Emanating from the Midlands, Plastik Soul are a duo whose passion for everything bass-driven is starting to result in some serious releases creeping onto the UK's cooler dancefloors. Scarface features three tracks that take a chainsaw to the competition: the title track is haunting 4/4 house track with warped, forlorn vocals; the moodiness is continued on the deeper, garage influenced late night vibes of "Served Til Midnight". However, the Miami sun comes out for Onza's hands-in-the-air carnival friendly rework of the title track.

I Need Your Love - (4:23) 133 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: The chipmunks are coming out to play on this new Bear Fresh release and they're hanging off the catchy hooks, and subsequent basslines of "Deeper" that burrow further underground by the beat once they drop. It's a fanfare of horns and devious triangle percussion on "I Need Your Love" with subtle bubbles of synths and breathy vocals giving this track as deeper disposition. These tracks are overly serious, nor are they too ironic, and they're the perfect tonic for a dancefloor hungry for garage beats, dubstep bass and housey synths.

Review: UK label Bear Fresh have carved a niche for themselves by sourcing and releasing some of the cleanest, crispest beats drizzled with '90s retro goodness. Here on Rural Vol 2, their second label compilation, they keep the good times coming. The overall vibe is still sharp, blingy deep house but with lots of twists, including the luxuriantly smooth rhythms of Jaquo George's "Luv Song", the melodic 4 x 4 of Paul Dobson's "In My Heart" and the deep tropical percussion of "Alright" by So Standard. Top notch!

Review: Bear Fresh have been pushing their more deep house-influenced side of late, but now they're revisiting their more urban-orientated "City" series to redress the balance. This second volume keeps the vibes going with nine killer tracks, highlights of which include the wobble-heavy stepper "Crazy Hype" by Crown Duels & Resonate, the apocalyptic 4x4 meanness of "Crater Face" by Pelikan, the tremor-inducing low end of future-laser-house belter, "Olisha's Call" by Scullious & One Over and, the frankly nuts, military bombardment of "Full Tilt" by Kiri & Nab.
