Jobsworth - (3:20) 140 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
On Foe Nem - (4:13) 140 BPM
   
Ennui - (3:42) 140 BPM
Review: We simply love to see new music drop from the Foundation Audio team, a Bristolian imprint with a fabulous back catalogue of subby warblers. Their latest selection continues along that theme as Kai Li supplies us with three system-ready stormers, kicking off firstly with the overpowering sub pressure and spacey drum expressions of the title track 'Jobsworth'. Next, the super punchy kick thuds and 808 style bass stabs of 'On Foe Nem' emerge, before the EP rounds off in style amid the tripled up sub manoeuvres and dungeon ready percussion of 'Ennui'.

Omerta
   
Subtle Mind & Saule - "Omerta" - (5:32) 140 BPM
   
Saule & Malleus - "The Flip Version" - (4:43) 140 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: It's a Saule co-lab showdown on Foundation Audio right now as the Santa Cruz depth plunger gets busy with fellow US cohorts Subtle Minds and Malleus. "Omerta" is all about the complex percussive dynamic as heavily layered drum elements are weaved with a spell-binding, rhythmic effect. "The Flip Version" follows from Saule's killer remix of Malleus's "Wall To Wall", a harder-hitting affair than "Omerta", the emphasis is squared plainly on the oceanic bass waves as they ebb and flow against the industrial strength drums. Two partnership productions, two critical reasons to keep Saule on your radar.

Dread Protocol
   
Dread Protocol - (5:05) 94 BPM
   
Bullet Dub - (5:05) 140 BPM
   
Dedication Dub - (4:48) 140 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Played by: GAZE ILL
Review: Rootical vibes: DTR returns to Foundation Audio with three tracks exploring dubstep's purest heritage. "Dread Protocol" is the heaviest, most contemporary track of the collection. Will full emphasis on the jittering kick/bass relationship, it's a physical affair that grips you in places you didn't know existed. "Bullet Dub" is a much more emotional production thanks to its reflective minor chord changes and sombre pace while show-closer "Dedication Dub" climaxes with a sizzling soundsystem special. Funky, organic and just the right amount of darkness, this is likely to enjoy heavy rotation throughout 2015.

Review: Foundation Audio founder Chad Dubz steps up with his debut album. And, as you'd expect, it's a document of daring dark design. From the moment the anvil-like kicks of opener "Transcending" punctuate with precision, you know you're in for a treat. Deeper into the narrative, cuts such as a "Shaka" and "Dark Ones" tell ominous stories of minor key jungle-minded mischief while cuts such as "Stay" bellow with such a moodiness and such bulbous bass detail that you have to stop and catch your breathe. Further into the blend again we hit cuts like "Witnessed" where dungeon-destined spaciousness plays the lead role, showing the Chad knows the genre and his craft with an intimacy most artists dream of. Debut albums don't come any clearer. Any further questions should be directed to Chad directly...

Normal People
   
Normal People - (7:30) 168 BPM
   
Lowest Common Denominator - (5:34) 172 BPM
   
Ugly - (6:24) 170 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Played by: FatKidOnFire
Review: Paragon isn't messing around on this one. Not that he's messed around on anything he's done on other labels such as 31 and Samurai. With its immense textures and sheet metal elements, "Normal People" is likely to scare most of its namesake, and is not to be treated lightly in any way! "Lowest Common Denominator" is slightly more conventional thank its synapse-snapping sub/step dynamic while "Ugly" is very much groove focussed; a paranoid riff swings back and forth over a mechanical, thunderous halfstep developing momentum with every spooked out pads and riser. Deeply dark, wholly original and genuinely forward thinking. You won't feel normal for a while after hearing these.

In The Half Light (Clearlight remix) - (5:30) 140 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
   
In The Half Light (Chad Dubz remix) - (5:18)
Review: UK south coast bass fusionista Mono goes in deep with a thick, sludgy soundscape that warps and whomps with pensive, palpitating menace. Ably coloured by sudden, startling splinters of amens, it bumps serious uglies. Remix-wise Clearlight gets trippy with really cool stuttering sample FX that twist the common constraints of time and space. Chad Dubz, meanwhile, elasticates the bass for a slightly more salubrious blend that rolls with liquid prowess.

Inner Karma - (6:10) Biggest-selling track on this release
   
Depth Of Field - (6:03) 140 BPM
Review: Japanese bass weaver Shiken makes his debut on Foundation with three supremely deep cuts. "Kabuto" (the helmet of choice for ancient Japanese warriors) fires out with a really distinctive rhythm arrangement. Retwisting the kicks gives it a breakbeat feel while retaining the abyss-like depths and space, making for a genuinely unique release. For something a little more obviously twisted and paranoid head up for "Inner Karma". A thick bed of mangled, far-away horns and haunted SFX, it could hunch a man's back from fifty paces. "Depth Of Field" closes the show with poignant hope; all stargazing and cinematic, the atmosphere is so dense it could feed a family of four for an entire week.

Giedi - (5:08) 140 BPM
   
Untitled Forever - (5:08) 140 BPM
Review: Deafblind makes his Foundation debut with a trio of Texan treats that showcase his range and repertoire with true weight and eclectic charm. While "Substitution" is all tightly woven, techy beats and ominous groans, "Giedi" comes with a classic UKG feel; all jaunty beats, jazz pads and a craftily cut up vocal, there's a tangible sexiness to the groove. Finally we hit "Untitled Forever"; the darkest of the three, here we switch and wriggle on a sturdy halfstep while an array of bass textures flip and fly across the mix, overlapping with infectiously physical undercurrents. There is no substitute for beats like this - Deafblind's smashed it again.
