Review: Canadian producer Aversive goes full-on skull-cracking mode with these four ploughman tear-ups. Dark styles all the way - with a strong nod to Metalheadz aesthetic - 'Dominion' sets the tone with its detuned synth swirls and big depth plunge basses while the title track comes with such a strong steppy energy you'll snap your collarbone just thinking about skanking to it. Deeper into the EP we hit the ice cold synths and deep rumbles of 'Stealth' before 'Revolution' ends the EP with a wry nod to soundsystem culture while keeping the bass and energy intense and menacing. See you down the A&E.
Review: Hands up who loves a little foundation flavour? Then look no further and DJ Uniques and Agent K team up with a whole bundle of timeless sounds. 'This Sound' taps into the classic Bristol flavour with its bouncy groove and cheeky energy. Further on we're tickled in all the sweet spots by the rumbling subs of 'Thunder Bolt', we're hammered by the gritty ruffage of 'Mission Face' and boosted by pure rave euphoria and the gully bassline slinkiness of their remix of Instag8's 'Release Me'. Sound as a pound!
Review: It's been a busy old month for man like Vital as he's appeared on Invicta, Murky, Drum Lab, Lickwood & Gunshot and NWS Digital in the last two months alone... Now he crashes down into the Dutty Bass HQ with three total steamrollers. 'The Chosen One' says it all - a Benny L style slap-about with an array of bass textures to chow down on. It's backed by more fire flavours; 'Killa' is a grizzler that shoots first and asks questions later while 'Time Lapse' plucks the harp strings to lure you in before hitting you hard with alien bassline spasms and cosmic flurries. Choo choo choose this!
Review: Flex your pecks for Leks! Owner of Big & Heavy Recordings, recent provider of stinkers on Four Corners and Program and all-round badman, here he is on Dutty Bass Audio with three absolute weapons. 'My Sound' flexes with a shiny, dubby sheen and a cool vocal sample, 'Badman Sound' takes us up about 10 gears with its grizzly all-out bassline (which wouldn't have gone amiss on Ram in the early 2000s) while 'Tell Dem' finishes the EP on more of a stripped-back and swinging jungle tip, all subs and crisp breaks. Leksual healing.
Review: 'Pull It' up, pull it in, let us begin... Faysha continues his excellent vein of form with this seismic six-piece on Dutty Bass Audio. The message is clear from the moment the title track kicks in with its sirens and big belly subs rumbling away beneath the crunchy beats. The rest of the EP maintains the pressure in a variety of ways; 'Diamonds' has a late 2000s jump up gnarliness to proceedings, 'Innocent' flips between sweet and sassy rnb and utter filth while 'Rolling Deep' does a similar contrast vibe with jazzy tones and an old school Bristol flavour. Elsewhere 'Position' brings the reggae skanks and 'Dead Ya Head' is just total KO material. Serious bang for your buck here. Pull up till you're full up.
Review: The S stands for slimy: like the bassline on 'So Dope', all oozy and sludgy as it pours around the rattling breaks in a classic late 90s Bristol way. The S stands for springy: like the rubber ball bassline that bounces away in a ruthlessly ravey way on 'Stand Up'. The S stands for shivers: like the epic ones that ripple down your spine on the lush foundation intro on 'Joy' before dropping into a ballistic bulldozer bassline on the drop. The S stands for screw-face, savage and stinky. The S stands for 'So Dope'.
Review: It's a Toronto thing; MC Zee and Just Mayhem link up for two party-starting bumpers. 'Vibes' is a dedication to the positive vibrations we all crave and missed so dearly during our time away from the rave. 'Still Here' flips for something much heavier and more dramatic. Ploughman breakbeats, a dizzying menu of basslines and fiery mic mashing from the man like Zee. Vibes o'clock.
Review: An inspired artist to come through the Dutty Bass Audio sound system is Snipez who makes a return to the label with the Forced Insanity EP. Knees up, tear out and hardcore junglisist rhythms - what more can you say. With a lone piano note flanked by half-time beats, gnarly bass mechanics and flurries of percussion; nostalgic vocals add a macabre element to the title track. Keeping the grooves rolling while holding down some bassline distortion is "Space Highway" with a chiptuned and melodic element helping counterbalancing its rude bassline stabs that take cover behind the warehoused sized action of "Enough (feat Mcnee)".
Review: Juno Download exclusive: another week means another release from prolific Toronto drum and bass label Dutty Bass Audio. This one comes courtesy of British producer Droma on the Venom EP, who has appeared on Viral-Mental, Nurtured Beatz Recordings and Kevlar Beats. The breakbeat science of the title track straddles the line between techstep and liquid d'n'b, complemented by Mista X's armageddon lyricism. There's also the minimal steppa "Last Straw" which is reminiscent of classic Tech Itch & Decoder, while "Gas Attack" ventures further into the darkside on this brooding sci-fi roller.
Review: DJ Direkt in the building with Xcape - a six track mega drop of knee lifting drum and bass heaviness. With stepping rhythms colliding with the electric static sounds and industrialisms of "Dope", numbers like "Bunn" keep with the hazardous rave tip only at a higher tempo. Pushing further into hyperspace is the rolling gnarliness of "Harsh", with "Time" maintaining its edge within a flying liquid rhythm. For some extra percussive hoops, hook up with "Sly", leaving the tear out champion of this EP to kill 'em all. Dutty Bass live and Direkt.
Review: Canadian drum and bass label Dutty Bass Audio returns with homegrown talent in the form of Mike Windsor aka DJ Swindla of Toronto, fronting up here on the label for the fourth time now with the Sunrise EP. It's dark techstep all the way on this one and certainly not for the faint of heart. From the murky subterranean roller that is the title track, "Legend" is reminiscent of Ed Rush & Optical's seminal material from the late '90s and continuing on the dark sci-fi neurofunk vibe is the seething closing track "Runaway".
Review: Canadian Chase Banks slamdunks onto Dutty Bass with this almighty five-track fire fight 'Gangland Execution'. Each one kills it in its own unique way; the title track will have you swimming with the fishes with its hip-snapping drums and grizzly bass, 'Sunshine' is a dark soul hummer that throws you in the trunk of a car and pushes you off a cliff while 'Badmon' is such a venomous slammer it'll bury you alive. Elsewhere 'Operator' is all lithe and stealthy like a sniper while 'Hunter Gatherer' is a straight up horses head on the pillow vibe. Make us an offer we can't refuse.
Review: Wrekka is a wicked producer who tends to put a snappier spin on the current KoTR-influenced sound, his passion for whiplash drum-lines giving his tunes a unique and recognisable edge. He's now on Dutty Bass with an EP that embodies that uniqueness and all three cuts are equally biting. 'Killa Master' is packed with foreboding vibes which conspire to give this tune a dangerous ambience, an atmosphere that's cut in two with a diving bassline and cutting drum lines. 'End of the Line' is equally wispy on the intro but far deeper on the drop, a subby back end rolling through the bottom end of the range with serious penetration. A thumping bit of work.
Review: Time for some non-heinous heaviness from the totally unbogus Bill & Ed. Renowned for their bubblers and rising with every release of late, 'From The Bottom Up' is one of their biggest and brightest releases as they take us from the Phibes-flavoured feels of the title track all the way through the spectrum; 'On My Grind' balances gully bass flavours with soulful vocals, 'Bad Man Technique' brings a little cosmic heads-down energy to the blend while 'EZ' closes the EP with a big soundsystem-melting jungle flex. Bottoms up lads!
Review: Rising Norwich newcomer Lankzi steps up in a major way on this fittingly titled EP 'Break Out'. Four tracks, four flavours, all badass; 'Break Out' starts the engine with a little tension and restraint on the super gully bassline sludge while 'Blow Dem' goes all-out jugular mode with its rattled breaks, distorted bass and ragga vocal. Elsewhere 'Why' manages to be stripped back and busy at the same time, thanks to the wild energy of the drums and less is more bassline, while 'Recall' closes the EP with some big old farty wobbles and grizzles. A really impressive early EP. Lankzi's one for the bank, see?
Review: Celebrating his recent upgrade to a full Kevlar exoskeleton, Wrekka is back with more tekkers. Make way for 'Bulletproof', a four-track slab of bassline bliss that flexes across the sonic board. From the late 90s wobbles and minimalism of the title track to the contemporary sound design and far-out nature of 'Taffy' via the grunt and thrust of 'One Finished' and the powerful slaps and bangs of 'Brains', something tells us we'll be shooting these weapons out for a long time to come. Pull it for the bullets!
Review: Revalation is pulling us back in time this time around with their latest EP, this one on Dutty Bass Audio, by rolling things out in true junglist style over five tracks in the stripped back, sample heavy manner so renowned in the 1990s. The title tune packs a sample base that's rich and vibrant, and it stretches its legs over a wonderfully subtle yet hard hitting combination of moving basses and rolling drums. 'Humboclat Elements' features more nostalgic sampling, which builds a ravey atmosphere into a feeling of suspense, cut away on the drop in wicked fashion. Sick releasee.
Review: Instag8 and Dutty Bass Audio have been teasing this album for several weeks now and the full thing is finally here. It's punching percussive madness the whole way through, a no-holds barred album which knows when to go all out and when to take a step back. There's luxurious instrumentation blended with grittier tones and 'Release Me' is exactly that, as vocal lines tug on your heart strings above a gully concoction of dusty basses and knock-back drum loops. There is old school techstep vibes on the roughness of 'Dealing With', a twisted rolling vibe on 'Girl Dem', and a reggae stepper to finish on 'Kiss Me Baby'. Sick stuff.
Review: Dutty Bass Audio are taking a step away from their typically jump-up inflected tones with this one, as Skaylz & The Junk-E blend synthetic daggers, stepping neuro tones and bouncy beats into a cohesive dancefloor package. 'Life Hack' is the highlight, a furious, stabbing array of synths which push forward with an infectious sense of momentum, a carefree track which nonetheless hits hard. 'My Tune' is the other highlight, and it has a superb beat structure that keeps things infinitely fresh the whole way through, a real ode to the power of rhythmic innovation. Bigups.
Review: Alekay and Paturn flip their collaborative dealings into a consolidated D&B bulldozer with this epic EP on Dutty Bass. Four steaming slabs of drum & bass dark matter, each cut rattles and slaps with serious distinction. Highlights include the bassline missiles firing from every angle on 'Till The Droo', the booming horns and growls on 'Tech Wonk' and the rave nostalgia on the breakdown of the brilliantly titled 'Hollandaise 800'. Yum.
Review: Chuck a duck! Dutty Bass Audio smash into the new season with this showcase from brand new talent Chuck UK. Two cuts, two reasons to lock this young man on your radar; 'Mission Chuck' gets all funky with a crisp and riffy bassline while 'The Streets' takes us down a much darker rabbit hole with its heartbeat bassline and scorching prangy textures swooping and sawing above it. Mission accomplished.
Review: With this single, Damageman has created something with a tasty amount of bite to it and which will give you the pick me up you need after the bloating Christmas period. 'Shadow Soul' is the better of the two, an ominous synthy introduction builds up tension deliciously before its all released on the drop, a furious amalgamation of distorted and disparate hits and cuts, Original Sin style. 'One Of Us' is more mellow not that much more, still containing a distinctly murky set of back end shudders and still possessing a formidable sense of momentum and travel.
Review: Dutty Bass Audio appear to have pulled yet another corker out of the bag with this one as they welcome the magnificent sounds of Just Mayhem for a spicy two track delivery. We begin our dive into this one with the super techy flavours and abstract synthetic designs of 'Polar Vortex', which warbles away atop scattered drum arrangements and a constantly shifting soundscape, keeping the listener well and truly on the tips of their toes. On the flip to this, we take in some super smooth sub-technique in 'Somebody Say', a refreshing rave shaker, alternating between clanky guitar chords and more innovative synth action throughout. Wavy work!
Review: Dutty Bass Audio tend to deliver rough, urban-edged sounds that don't prance around or act fancy, they just get down and dirty. Jedi has delivered exactly that here, with a four-track EP of moody tones and no-nonsense drum lines. 'Quench Your Thirst' is a perfect example of said drums, with impossibly clean hits and a clear sense of space and progression, its bass stabs are almost shadowed out. 'I Would LIke' is the most futuristic, with a deep back end and seriously cool synth spasms that lend it a techier feel than the other cuts on the EP. The other two are equally top-draw - make sure to check these.
Review: Redline is back, back again and it's once more on Dutty Bass, the label which never ceases to pump out music which pummels you, pleases and you and punishes you in equal measure. This time around he's cooked up a fiery five-tracker and it's a percy, with five slices of trademark damage that tread a wicked line between over-the-top jump-up and moody rollers. 'Street Knowledge' is the best example of that, as the drums roll out into oblivion and a gargling expression of bass energy lights up the top end of the range in stabby, serious fashion. Energy, energy.
Review: Terrible times call for 'Terrible Creatures'. The type of critters that creep all over you and burrow into your soul so deep they become part of you. Just like these tunes. The latest batch from the ever-ready banger machine Instag8, each cut runs circles round you and bites down hard. The sharp-toothed brass stabs and sneering bassline on 'Stronger', the slithering python-like squeeze 'Many Dayz' has on your loins, the growling, restrained menace of the bass one 'Come Alive'. Each of these tracks, and the rest of the EP, creeping over you, burrowing into your soul. Terrible times m8.
Review: Pablo G has been doing his thing for quite some time now and his latest EP on Dutty Bass is one of his best so far, the progression of his sound audible across very inch. 'Nightmare' is absolutely awesome and smacks of Exit Records with its drum pattern and repetitive, abstract approach to making drum & bass, but still manages to keep things dancefloor friendly and familiar - sick tune. 'Paranoia' is more of a roller, with a flurry of hi-hats and cross-cutting basslines that wobble and growl with abandon as they move through the arrangement. 'Rumination' is possibly he heaviest track on the EP, as a set of incredible drums bounce and smash into the arrangement in a manner similar to that of Break. Top draw.
Review: If you can't pick up from his name that Wrekka loves to wreck dancefloors with grimey beats, then, well, he's going to make sure you know with this new EP on Dutty Bass Audio. It's a seven-track monster of a release and the scariness doesn't let up at any point throughout, as Wrekka lets loose with all barrels. 'Desert Skies' is especially sick, with a wonderfully heavy sub bass that flutters just as much as it wobbles, underpinning a whole arrangement of skipping drums and murderous synth touches. 'Arcadia' blends soulful sampling with diving sine waves, whilst Trojan is just relentlessly good. Bigups.
Review: J.O. is one of the most consistent jump up producers around and he's back on long-time collaborator Dutty Bass Audio, who have proven to be the perfect home for his unique brand of music. His sound never gets boring, and it's the punishingly hard bass of 'Do It Now that really carries the tune, especially as it spirals out into a twisting concotion of devilish basslines. 'Here Comes The Music' is equally unique, as a fluttering twirl of stabs moves up and down through its mechanical soundscapes. Tight stuff from J.O.E boy.
Review: Conrad Subs is just unbelievably prolific and it seems like every week brings at least one new release from the man who is on undeniably good form right now. He works across a litany of labels and this time it's the turn of Dutty Bass Audio, who are an ideal staging point for his wicked blend of junglist tones and jump up flavours. It's a combination embodied in this release, which moves from the deep, rolling sounds of 'Accumulate' to 'Hard's inch perfect, precision percussion and stabbing back end. 'What Is Love' is another highlight, as furious drums crescendo into mutating basslines, whilst 'Swerve' takes a similar and equally effective approach. Big ups.
Review: There's nothing better than a wicked collaborative EP, as two artists bang their heads together and get the most of out each other. That's what's happened here, as Dublic and Luk Peers join forces over on Dutty Bass Audio for a stripped back, barebones EP. 'Turmoil' rests on a solid percussive foundation, whilst an ambient soundscape is penetrated through by wispy basses that feel like birds in the foggy night sky. 'Within Me' is similar and is grounded by a cool vocal sample, whilst things get breaksy on 'Frequency' and tough on 'Down'. Cool work.
Review: Last spotted sending us some very strong signals on Raw Motion, super prolific producer Instag8 lands on Dutty Bass Audio and he's offering us a one way ticket into the unknown... The journey kicks off with lonely guitar twangs and eerie weirdness of the title track before we're hurled in a bloodclart riot with "The Roughest". Deeper into the trip we continue to get intoxicated by the devilish bassline on "It's Poison" before the restrained hum and gentle musicianship of "Reasons" brings us to a dark soul conclusion. Make yourself unknown.
Review: Long time Canadian D&B representer Chase Bankz makes his Dutty Bass Audio debut with a lethal clutch of grizzlers. Four tracks in total, plus a killer remix from man-of-the-moment Conrad Subs, highlights include the switchy bass growls and roomy kicks on the title track "Wild Styles" the choppy breaks and hardcore hoover tones on "YouTube Sensation" and the pure ruffage of "Bring The Ruckus". Don't go chasing your tail, Chase Bankz instead.
Review: Dutty Bass never fail to deliver and right here they've surpassed themselves with these two bumpy treats from new artist Wrekka. Two sides, two vibes, two chances to knock people sideways: "Addict" warms up with shimmering housey synths before dropping into a nice toxic sludgy roll-out while "Badboy" takes a classic Cutty Ranks vocal and smashes the nan out of it. Wrekka by name, wrecker by nature.
Review: From Lava to fire, Dutty Bass Audio get real with this powerful package from UK stalwart DJ Lava. Each cut designed to commit arson on sight, it's a total banger riot: "Blinding Lights" goes big on the dramatic horn blurts, "Black Magic" is all about the chainsaw riffs, bubbling subs and savage breaks on the fills, "Get Money" is a surging dark style roller with an empowering aspirational spoken word sample while "Insomnia" goes in on prang vibes with a really weirded out minor key riff. Last but not least Lava tags in his Canadian cuzzie Tru Troopa for the chaos jam of the set. Armed with an insane bassline playing all kinds of theatrical tricks on your mind, it's an absolute brain melter. Take care!
Review: Brizzle newcomer Charlie Chubbs makes his debut on DBA with four flabby originals. Simple in their nature but direct in their energy and hookiness, each cut is built around an effective riff that nags in a Q&A style over some pretty robust beats. Highlights include "The Sound" where the beats switch us up on a dark direction and a classic vocal sample clip is thrown in for mischievous measure and "Peace" where dreamy chords and a piano line create a surging uplift. A decent debut.
Review: It's time for us to take in some exciting new jungle with this one as we see Rough Culture land on the fabulous Dutty Bass Audio with five potent rollers, destined to detonate dances around the country. We kick off with the crunchy drum work and catchy melodic flexes of the title track 'Cali Herb', before moving into sub-heavy drives and catchy vocal licks of 'Champion Skank' alongside the more experimental soundscaping of 'Rollers Choice'. The vibes are lively as we continue forward through this one, landing next on 'Turn Me On' a drum-heavy smasher, driven by explosive breakbeat sampling and sweeping sub tones. Finally, 'Jungle War' arrives with its ramping bass notation and skippy drum arrangements to see this one out with a bang!
Review: DJ Swindla is landing on Dutty Bass Audio with a seriously cool release, one which sits a bit more on the dark, deeper side of the spectrum compared to the label's normal territory. 'Sneak' get things off the mark with a beautifully rolling percussive basis and sweeping low frequencies that would sound absurdly good through a sound system, and it's a formula which plays well across the following tunes. 'No More' gets even deeper and the blend of dark ambience and tumbling breaks is another highlight of the release.
Review: Dutty Bass Audio are a regular here on Juno and for good reason, their proclivity for steadily releasing rough but energetic, whole-hearted cuts is strong and their small size doesn't prevent the release of top-quality music. Dcision is on the label this time with a double-sider and 'Pon Me Side' is the strongest on the release, with a Dispatch-esque feel to its cracking percussion and a torn, broken back end that rips across the range with style. The flip-side goes down an old school route with a load of power in its classic synth work - one for the dancefloor. Mad one.
Review: KC is back on the fast-moving train that is jump-up and dancefloor dnb and once more, he's proven adept at bringing to the fore some forward-thinking sounds in that regard. He's a name we know and 'Let's Get Rowdy' - the title track to this release - is certainly a promising sign. Glitchy and with a satisfying sense of lagged out travel, this tune certainly bites hardbut it does so in a fresh, unique manner. 'Girls & 808's' is step-up in sophistication and nastiness, a snappy, stepping drum line pushing up into its metallic bottom line, this one is a proper creeper.

Review: Dutty Bass Audio are unique in that they're based over in Canada and whilst you certainly don't hear about many D&B labels from the Great White North, the quality of this little imprint would suggest that we should. DJ Direkt is the latest artist to grace their release page and his Dangerz LP is straight up wicked, spanning a cross-section of beat patterns, nestling comfortably into the dark end of the spectrum but having an element of the lighter side as well. The dominant frame here is rough and tumble beats which aren't precise and clinical but which are packed with dirty sounds. 'Killa Sound' is just that, a powerful roller with an old school edge to it. The title track is also top quality, and this LP just bangs from start to finish.
Review: Faysha is landing on Dutty Bass Audio with an unsophisticated but incredibly fun release, one which, if you hear out live, is certain to get you moving. There's a carelessness and a freedom to these tracks and it's a tangible sense of kinetics. The title track kicks things off in style but it's 'Hey Mr Policeman' that really takes the cake, a winding, foghorn heavy track that flips between wobbling shimmers and jump-up stabs. It's a wicked track and definitely the highlight of the release. 'Ting A Ling' is another absolute banger but one that's deep and bouncy in all the right ways. Sick release.
Review: Dutty Bass Audio are unique in that they're based over in Canada and whilst you certainly don't hear about many D&B labels from the Great White North, the quality of this little imprint would suggest that we should. JCB is the latest artist to grace their release page and his Easy Jet EP is straight up wicked, spanning a cross-section of beat patterns, nestling comfortably into the dark end of the spectrum but having an element of the lighter side as well. This lighter side is apparent in the synths on the title track, and it also has a superb percussive feel to it that's punctuated by swollen bass pulses and guided by a genuine sense of purpose. It totally sets the tone for the rest of the release - check it out.
Review: We love the fact that Dutty Bass Audio are based over in Canada and you certainly don't hear about many D&B labels from the Great White North. This fact is made even more prescient by the quality of this little imprint, which consistently smashes it out of the park. Mystical Sounds is the latest artist to grace their release page and Reward EP is straight up dirty, spanning a cross-section of beat patterns but all nestling comfortably into the dark end of the spectrum. The title track has a superb steppy percussive feel to it that's punctuated by swollen bass pulses and guided by a genuine sense of purpose, there's a proper murky old-school feel to this tune and it reminds us quite a lot of Sub Zero back in the day. The rest of the tunes are all wicked as well - go cop this one.
Review: Bill & Ed are coming at you with their VIP and remix edition of Keeping It Gangster, a mammoth 12-track exploration of what their original work can become in different contexts, featuring big names like DJ Hybrid and Saxxon, as well as smaller ones like K Jah and Dcision. It's a very solid LP that's grounded in rough, urban sounds that are sure to resonate with anyone who loves this culture. The DJ Hyrbrid remix of the title track is especially good, with a solid drum base and a lovely bass.
Review: Dutty Bass Audio are unique in that they're based over in Canada and whilst you certainly don't hear about many D&B labels from the Great White North, the quality of this little imprint would suggest that we should. Scattyone is the latest artist to grace their release page and his Fees So Good EP is straight up wicked, spanning a cross-section of beat patterns, nestling comfortably into the dark end of the spectrum but having an element of the lighter side as well. The title track has a superb percussive feel to it that's punctuated by swollen bass pulses and guided by a genuine sense of purpose. It totally sets the tone for the rest of the release - check it out.

Review: Ever liked the flavour of some D&B so much you wanted to lick it? Well, now you can, with Dublic's Selections EP. You can't actually lick it but you'll certainly like it, as Dublic has gone for a classic rough sounding approach that seriously lends itself to some underground listening. Just check out 'Alarm', with a classic sample you'll instantly recognise and a bassline that'll shudder your bones, it's a neat exemplification of the rip-roaring approach that's been attempted here. The other tunes don't disappoint either, with a sick vocal feature on the title vibes and more. Big EP.
Review: Conrad Subs is one of those heavily underrated producers that seems to consistently push out music regardless of how much attention is cast his way. He plugs away and you can tell in the maturity that emanates from his music. The creativity on 'Update Funk' is evidence of that, a funky, infectious synth line running perfectly beneath Valiant Emcee's upbeat vocal work. 'Sneak' is just as creative with its harsh, steppy percussive work that underpins a swinging, wonky concoction of synthy basses that wouldn't be amiss in a Med School or Diffrent Music release. The interesting drums continue on 'Bones' and 'Jackdaw', the former of which is a bitingly dark halftime cut, the latter another steppy bit chock full of stabs and swerves. Another top EP from man like Conrad Subs.
