Rat - "Memento" (Audialist remix) - (4:50) 134 BPM
Review: Next up from the Deep Heads team, we welcome this tasty new selection from the one and only Audialist, a Swedish producer who is starting to bring his incredibly unique sound to the centre of the dubstep sphere. Through the sunshine chords of 'Serpent', clicking percussion of 'Keep Turning' and incredibly clean bass manoeuvres of 'Dead', he kicks this project off with a real touch of finesse. We then lean into the stunning harmonics of 'Urban Surfer', the dubwise drum and sub combos of 'Sleep It, Eat It, Drink It' and shimmering pad textures of 'Gone' to round off the original creations. He then gets busy of remix duty, giving a spacy UKG rethink to 'Same Kind' from Congi, Occult & Segilola, as well an unbelievable techy overhaul of Congi's 'Mesopotamia' and a highly rhythmic redesign of 'Memento' from Rat. Audialist is most certainly a name to watch in the coming months.

Review: For this latest selection of excellence from the Deep Heads movement, we are again introduced to Geode, a producer with a serious point to prove as he unleashes twelve tracks of stunning steppers quality. From the techy drum manoeuvres of 'Oblong' to unpredictable melodies of 'Phi' and high energy rhythms of 'Lark Ascending', this release packs something for any dubstep fan! For us there are two clear standouts, the first of which comes to us through the mesmeric harmonies of 'Jade', alongside the crispy minimalism of 'Ruh', in collaboration with C Tivey. Awesome work!
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!
Review: We are very excited to dive head first into this one as we are joined by the stunning vocal ability and musical prowess of Zeb Samuels for a brand new album project entitled 'Hope & Light'. On first impressions, the album is a fantastic display of harmonic understanding, with Zeb heavily focusing on striking electronic layers vocal bliss, with incredibly smooth backing orchestration from start to finish, being primarily made up of fluffy, hypnotizing pad textures and minimalist drum work. It's a fantastic body of work, really showcasing Zeb's unique take on downtempo themes, with particular highlights including the moody chord structures and spacey reverberations of 'A Road Never Found', along with the super catchy riffs and more up-beat rhythms of 'Brightness'. Awesome stuff from start to finish!
