Bubble Soup / Lavish
Bubble Soup - (4:04) 174 BPM
Lavish - (4:48) 175 BPM Hot
Review: Two legends go toe-to-toe in the studio right here on Natty Dub: new Bristol resident K Jah and Brizzle native (and stone cold west country pioneer) Suv on 'Bubble Soap' and 'Lavish'. Both men renowned for their love of the craft, these cut don't disappoint; the former is a real pavement pounder of a track with its steamroller kicks and flabby funk while the latter takes us on dreamy sway with pure Bristol class. Something for all heads. This is a powerful release.

Signals - (4:21) 176 BPM
Review: US representing! Serjah9 makes his debut on Natty Dub with four total and utter tear-ups. 'Pay Up' cuts through the BS like a chainsaw. Sizzling with high frequency tension, this will cut down your entire unit in seconds. Elsewhere 'Every Where I Go' is the highlight of the set with its hip-hop sample and rampant bass worm lead while 'Cool Breeze Bass' flips between island bliss and street-bound grit. Last but not least 'Signals' brings XXXL drama to the EP with its guttural bassline classic sci-fi samples. Cool and deadly.

Review: Bristol bubblers aplenty! Jaxx returns to Natty Dub with four more of his finest bumpers and bruisers. All stripped back to the bare beats and bass, each cut comes with its own cheeky groove and character. 'Patterns' takes the lead and sets the scene with its molten bass and rolling drums, elsewhere 'Love Over War' ups the energy with big splashy Zinc-style breaks and trippy bleeps, 'Sycamore' hits with that classic Full Cycle style jazz and some superb bassline wobbles while 'Stuck In A Rut' closes the EP with a rasping gritty edge that's reminiscent of a young Mampi Swift. Woi to the oi.

Back In The Day - Serial Killaz Remix
Back In The Day (Serial Killaz Remix) - (5:32) 174 BPM
Review: Once again, we see the awesome sounds of Natty Dub Recordings return, this time delivering a pulverising display of original D&B flavour, welcoming the lethal sounds of Serial Killaz inside for a truly tasty remix. The original sounds of DJ Hybrid are on display, as we hear his heavyweight roller 'Back In The Day' receive that classic Serial Killaz overhaul, reworking the track into an even more gritty roller, with a strong focus on gnarly synthesiser growls, eerie backing melodies and of course a combination of hard hitting drum thuds. It's a killer rework that is certain to cause a large amount of damage in the dances.

Mechanical Gears - (4:35) 175 BPM
Review: Longstanding US drum & bass operative Hoogs comes charging into the Natty Dub HQ with a steamroller made entirely of wobbling low frequencies. 'Falling Away' hits first with its bellowing tubular bassline and full charge beats while 'Mechanical Gears' goes all-out on the swaggering groove, the XXXL reverse warps and that classic early 2000s Bristol style groove. Both absolutely flatten the joint.

Review: Word to the wise, pay attention: Coda is sitting on some of the best and most forward-thinking material he's made in his prolific career so far. It starts here with this wild barrel of Natty Dub funk - 'Mister Beat'. From the cover art to the very last burping bass, everything about this EP bumps... 'Mister Beat' hits with classic jump-up funk, 'Satellite 2001' is a lesson in minimal groove craft while 'Last Chance' has a turn-of-the-century Ram records charm to it. Finally 'B-Side Funk' is a proper rusty rattler that nods rather heartily in the direction of Krust circa late 90s. Don't miss this.

Laserbeams - (5:16) 174 BPM
Review: Natty Dub saddle up for their 10th anniversary with a whole slew of celebratory reboots and exclusives from the family. 2018 banger 'Where The Root Is' goes under the knife of the mighty Kleu who flip the track into a wild dancefloor beast, leaving no stone unturned and ensuring a big stack of energy for the 2022 dancefloors. 'Laserbeams' meanwhile takes us back to that anthemic, emotional mid 2000s Massive bassline sound.

Review: Following last month's power-packed Natty Dub 'Trench Warfare' collection comes this equally spicy VA featuring highlights, heavers and hurters from across the Natty family. Conrad Subs kickstarts the EP with a little Latin heat on the ludicrously funky 'Salsa Dip' while Saxxon goes monster with his deep dark slammer 'Neptune'. Elsewhere Manny legends Dawn Raid shoot us off into space with 'Mega City One', Jfal goes both cosmic and badboy on 'Run Dance' and Tomoyoshi puts a star-gazing full stop on the EP with the Think break bashing 'Space Funk'

A sublime selection across the board from some of their nearest and dearest, vibes range from the depth plunge tension and creepiness of Dub General's 'No More' to the soulful vocal charms of Scurrow's 'Go Now'. All styles and shapes and sizes in between: Dunk & Jaxx go dubby and slinky on 'Amazon River', Simple Simon gets his jazz on with 'Bounce Rate' while Vytol does the damage on 'Get Cute'.

Review: Time for some Swindon sizzlers: Classifyed lays down some unclassified 'Information' right here in the form of four absolute tear-ups on Natty Dub. Pristine drum production and some excellent gritty funk in the bassline department, each cut will cause havoc but special persies here for the Juno Download family are the futuristic bassline and textures of 'Give It To You', the Ram-like feels of 'Take A Hit' and the deep space finale session 'Like This'.

Review: Fire from Finland! DJ Sofa makes her debut on Natty Dub showcasing a whole different side to her style as she unleashes the power of 100 Roni Sizes on the organ slapping riff-heavy dancefloor weapon 'Fruit Crate Digger'. Also included is another Bristol flavoured missive 'We Got You'. A little more jungly in its make-up and use of switchy, savage breaks, it's another sure-fire smash up from one of the most exciting newcomers to hit the scene in recent times. Get fruity!

Review: Putting the bang into bangers and the hurter into hurters, Natty Dub wrap up 2021 with this box of heavyweight weaponry from some of their closest family members and affiliates. Coda takes the lead with a stampy, stompy heads-down piece with a stern reverse warp bassline and thicc-assed kicks. He's joined by an all-star cast: K Jah & Vytol link up for 'Another Tomorrow', a pipe-snapping stepper with big harmonic bass breathing beneath, Erbman gets all roughhouse with his early Clipz style bass textures, Jaxx calls time with his swaggering 'Tickin Clocks' while Damagement concludes the EP with the focused fire and fury of 'Odds & Sods'. Ready? Aim.... Fire!

Review: You've tasted Turkish Delight and Angel's Delight, now chow down on these sweet beats... Midlands veteran K Jah explores his dancefloor roots on 'Ravers Delight', a killer debut album on Natty Dub. Cashing in over 20 years as a raver (a good 10+ years of which he's also been a producer) K Jah rattles and slaps his way through timeless jungle dnb work-outs. Highlights include the percussive Skeptical meets Hazard tear-up vibes of 'Ominous', the stripped-back bounce and hoover stabs of the title track 'Ravers Delight', the jazzy feels and sudden operatic flare of 'Aria' and the old school Playaz / Zinc bumps and bounces of 'Different Things'. With a strong 90s / Bristol / hip-hop vibe running throughout, there's a consistency here that you don't always hear on an artist debut. The long game always pays off. Big up K Jah.

Review: Established in 2012, Natty Dub Recordings is a digital jungle/drum & bass label based out of Essex, UK. Following up some great releases by the likes of Erbman and Jaxx, we have a new one on the label here this week by kC & MC Astro who surfaced last year on French label Weapons Of Choice Recordings. They are in fine form on this three tracker, which features the party rockin' jump-up energy of "Rock The Sound" featuring Astro's cool-as-a-cucumber vocal delivery, the wonky steppa that is "Moon Patrol" and slamming it out with all they've got on the wicked "Driving Fast" calling to mind the best of DJ Marky or Bingo Beats.

Review: Erbman has developed a reputation for tough, urban-edged sonics over many years of cultivation and curation, over years of doing his bit for a scene and over years of pumping out very, very good music. He's diverse in his capabilities and this EP sees him nailing once more his jump up-ier side, something we're definitely very keen on, especially when it's on a label like Natty Dub. This release is wicked and 'Fat Bud Stack' is a highlight, with a snapping percussive line forming around its inching, creeping basses and eerie background ambience. We also love the funky basslines in 'Pontiac Funk' and 'City Flow', two tracks that are designed to make you move. Top stuff right here.

Review: Jaxx is rolling out the old school vibes here, harking back to the Bristol jump up glory days with its oozing, heavy-set basslines and crunchy, vibrant drums. It's a two-track single on the always present Natty Dub Recordings, and it's the flip, 'Machu Picchu', that really shines. With a percussive line that will live rent free in your head for some time to come and a simple yet shocking good bassline, this is a genuine party track that would sound equally at home at a free party as it would a Metalheadz rave. Big ups.

Life Support (feat Vytol) - (5:37) 175 BPM
Ominous - (5:31) 175 BPM Hot
Review: Natty Dub Recordings always deliver tough, urban-edged sounds that don't prance around or act fancy, they just get down and dirty. K Jah has delivered exactly that here, with a two-track single of moody tones and no-nonsense drum lines. 'Life Support feat.Vytol' 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. 'Ominous' 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 but one which is still grounded in roughness. Another unreal piece of work.

Review: Coda crash lands on Natty Dub with two naughty barn-stormers. Taking things back to basics, there's a premium whiff of timelessness here on both cuts as Code reminds us of his groove science. 'Smoked Out' rumbles and grumbles with an old Die style bubbler bassline while the beats pump and pummel relentlessly. 'Jabberwocky' is the more upbeat and lively with a Serum-style Q&A riff rising and falling up the groove. Infectious.

Status Concrete (feat Natty D) - (5:09) 175 BPM
Review: K Jah kicks the doors of 2021 down with the launch of debut album Ravers Delight. This is the first sampler and it sets the scene perfectly. 'In Love' takes a classic vocal snippet and wraps it up all sassy and sweet around a harmonic bassline that nods respectfully towards the likes of Sir Clipz and Professor Serum. 'Status Concrete' digs deeper into a dark, moodier sound. Tension in those big drone basslines and full command from Natty D's vocal, it's very clear K Jah's door kicking is going to continue for some time to come. Delightful.

Review: Natty Dub never fail to rouse us out of our stupor, no matter how bleak things look outside. This two-track tear-up from Vytol is of course no exception. 'Sell Out' is a stern slab of rollage with a Heavyweight-style bassline that grunts and growls its way through the mix with clarity and venom. 'Morph' meanwhile pays homage to every UK 80s/90s kids favourite plasticene hero with a little help from fellow Natty regular K-Jah. Pure bassline squelch business, this one is for all the artists out there. Harty on dudes.

The Message - (4:49) 175 BPM
Review: It's a Bristol thing! Two D&B professors from two different generations link-up once again for some two bubbly rub-ups. 'High Altitude' has that classic Full Cycle flavour throughout; massive happy-slapping breaks and a sub so wobbly it makes Andre The Giant look slim. 'The Message' follows on a much darker tip; imagine Lynx's 'Disco Dodo' but while marching through a think muddy swamp while being snapped at by crocodiles. The message is clear: Suv & Jaxx are certy badmen.

Review: KC & Regina are on Natty Dub for a single that sits comfortably on the intersection between lighter and darker bits, a nice concoction of influences that come together for wicked results. 'Street Lights' is fresh and creative, with a skippy, Serum-esque drum line and warped out synth nodes that climb and fall in tandem with each other, forming a hypnotic main melody. Mcleod steps in for the remix on the flip and takes things into darker territory with a stripped back arrangement, greater focus on the drums and an even nastier back end. Big.

The B-side is equally ferocious, with the whole releasing packing a seriously potent feeling of low frequency destruction. Banging bits here.

Firing from all cannons, every track is a thumper; Saxxon gets his squelch on with "Brockley Fox", T>I is all screams, wriggles and giggles on "Pointless Torture", Sikka delivers one of his best tunes to date in the funk-fuelled form of "You Know", Suv and Mood give us a Bristol kiss with the slinky, hip-twisting "Mambo" and Jaxx nods his cap at the wild west of the mid 90s on the percussion heavy "Hurdles". Timeless, authentic and full of dirty funk - Natty Dub are one of the most true-to-the-core labels doing it right now. Bring on the next 50!

Nothing Changes (dub mix) - (5:42) 174 BPM Hot
Review: Andezz has done the liquid rounds for quite a while now, having released previously on labels like V Recordings and Liquid V, and his style is always wispy but tough, with the melancholia of all good liquid but without the emptiness of some. Regina joins him to adds a vocal lick to his production and her voice sounds amazing on top of his rolling, piano-laden instrumental base, the track progresses nicely and it's a great example of how liquid producers can strip things back but keep things tight. Excellent single.

Review: Calling all ragamuffins and roustabouts; DJ Hybrid's 2016 Natty Dub banger gets the treatment from two bonafide roller dons. T>I steps up first with a serious murk of approval as the creepy intro, spoken sample and stripped back nature of the original are maintained but with added clunky drums on the fills and a gnarlier twist to the bass fills. Damageman also maintains the arpeggiated intro but then drops into a classic loose-limbed breakbeat before eventually building into a big juicy synth riff a la BBK circa 2005. Spot on.

The Martian - (5:20) 58 BPM
Review: They don't call Trakker 'The Sweet Sweet Gully Attacker' for nothing. Actually they don't call him that at all... But trust us, they soon will when they get a slap around the chops from his Natty Dubs releases. Authentic dark rollage with strong jungle roots; just like his label debut last year - "Tunnel Vision" / "Blanks" - both these cuts hit home like a final notice bill. "Neighbour Snitch" is all waspy and ruthless, stabbing and weaving like 1999 V cut while "The Martian" takes us down a much spookier, bashier tip where tension is coded into big, broad element. Seriously sweet, gloriously gully. Trakker is on the attack.

Review: Saxxon has had a wicked past year or so, first with the release of his debut album and then his top-notch EP on V Recordings. Now, he's on Natty Dub for a four-tracker that sits comfortably on the intersection between jungle, jump-up and darker bits, a nice concoction of influences that come together for wicked results. The title track is fresh and creative, with a skippy, Serum-esque drum line and arpeggiated synth nodes that climb and fall in tandem with each other, forming a hypnotic main melody. 'More Dangerous' takes things into darker territory, as does 'Insomniac', and 'Jungle Brothers' combines furious percussion with a ratline sense of force. Big stuff from Saxxon.

DJ Hybrid & Next Chapter - "Street Knowledge" - (4:29) 176 BPM
Review: Hailing from Coventry, DJ Hybrid has firmly established himself over the last couple of years as someone at the forefront of D&B's re-discovered love for jungle-influences and bouncy but hard-hitting basslines. Drawing upon those influences, he's back on Natty Dub Recordings for a full-throated six-tracker that kicks off with title track 'Push The Dub', a gently weighted sine-based wobbler that pushes on every corner of the range. 'Back in the Day' and '808 Roller' have clear Kings of the Rollers vibes, with juddering bass pulses and that recognizable sense of hardware-based rawness. This release has overtones of Manchester and undertones of the South - proper UK underground stuff.

Spirit / Ready Ready
Spirit - (5:59) 58 BPM
Ready Ready - (4:33) 174 BPM Hot
Review: This double-sided single from Suv & Jaxx is about as hellish as the dystopic and/or paranormal artwork would suggest. Comprised of devilish sampling, eerie soundscapes and sharp, jagged drum lines, this release hits the absolute spot. 'Spirit' is the steppy, broken cut of the two and after a spooky intro that could be likened to a haunted house, it drops out of nowhere into an impossibly clean arrangement of tight percussive hits and gargling bass pulses. 'Ready' is pacier and is packed with more momentum but isn't quite as dystopic, it's back end arrangements ooze heaviness but also a sense of upbeat enjoyment and pleasure: it's not blackish but still packs a punch. A quality single this and we're looking forward to seeing what follows from these two.

Review: Hot on the heels of his Souped Up EP comes another barmy batch of rolling blunderbusses from the currently unstoppable T>I. Four slabs of flabby bass fire, each cut hits you right in the loins, soul and solar plexus: "Blue Panda" wriggles with some beautifully loose Bingo style breaks, "Treacle" is as sludgy and bittersweet as its title suggests while "Serve Cold" aims north for the jugular with a crisp groaning slap that's not so much as cold but totally glacial. Finally "Blocks" wraps up T>I's first session of 2019 with a high voltage bassline, trippy textures and some drums so beautifully crafted you want them to kidnap you from reality forever. Another strike from Norfolk's maddest man. Don't be blue, Peter...

Tunnel Vision/Blanks
Tunnel Vision - (5:13) 58 BPM
Blanks - (4:40) 175 BPM Hot
Review: Set coordinates to stun, Trakker's tracked us down again and he's firing at us point blank with two more raw rugged heaters. "Tunnel Vision" is an uncompromised flashback to 99 and prime techstep feels: steppy, distorted and foreboding. "Blanks" is all clipped and buzzy. Swaggering on a wonked out tripletty swing, it's countered perfectly by a series of smoky horns and an overall trippy feel. Natty to the core.

Want More - (4:38) 174 BPM
Review: Sniffing up the vapour trails of his Grid and Switch! EPs earlier this year, Coda returns to Natty Dub with two barn flattening bassline slap sessions. "Power Surge" is a nod to the early 2000s Bristol and V Records sound. Stark, grunting, unabashed and insanely addictive. "Want More" continues the heads down vibrations with another hook bass riff that's utterly infectious but delivered in more of woozy higher harmonic way. Feel the power.

Plastik Sea - (6:02) 175 BPM Hot
Review: Natty Dub welcome the return of the Bristol G and founding Full Cyclist Suv. Last spotted damaging the label with badness two years ago, he returns with his sparring partner Joe Peng on two more sterling workouts. "Bong Didly" rattles with a beautifully wonky vibe that's almost techno in its insistency and seeming simplicity. "Plastik Sea" grabs us hook, line and stinker with its rattled melodic percussion, belching bass and classic dubby FX. Minimal ingredients, maximum flavour; Suv will forever know what time it is.

Review: Calling all space cadets, Jaxx is taking us to the moon and we have no say in the matter. The title track is all we need for a springy lift off with its rubber bass and full throttle breaks. Further into our mission "Park Hill" thrusts us through ozone with cheeky vox shots and another elastic molten bass riff, "Forbidden Fruit" brings us down to land on the lunar surface with trippy shards of jazz wrapped around robust percussion-primed breaks while the grumbling basses of "Moving Mountains" bound us around the craters in a moonbuggy stuck in top gear. Finally we take off for home with "Where The Root Is". The journey will be turbulent but the soaring harmonies and cosmic skanks will soothe your intergalactic-travelled ruffled soul. Ready for take-off?

Review: Bun your diet brands. Scrap the low calorie plan. K Jah's packing some of the creamy goodness and ain't nobody leaving without second helpings. "Full Fat" slaps with a classic bulbous Bristol funk vibe where a chunky Die-like riff, "Furious Funk" with put fire in your belly with its low gurgling turbine style bassline that rises with mechanical menace while "Reputation" is riff-flexing six course banquet of pure unfettered gully. Last but not least "Don't Play Games" serves up pudding. All slimy, sticky and loaded with fatty subs, it will drive both dancefloors and cholesterol levels crazy.

Tagging up with K Jah for "Another Day", Regina adds a sultry smoothness to some serious ruffneck beats creating a perfect game of shades. "Controlling The Senses" flips the vibe for a much more alluring soulful space jam with dials ably tweaked by Manchester's finest; Dawn Raid. Take control today.

Review: Hoogs is on the wobbly juice again. Making his Natty Dub EP debut with four of his funkiest classical jump-up blends, this is not to be slept on. "JNGLST" is a vowel-snatching swinger with a hook more infectious than backstage couch, "Chimes" is all about the cascading molten bassline with "Laeddis" gets all warped, waspy and theatrical over a rusty old school break. Last but not least we have "Final Breath", a much sharper, frazzled burn-up with subtle jazzy chords seeping in mid way. Vibes are high.

DJ Hybrid unleashes a rumbling understated groaner, Jaxx gets all jittery and data-glitchy, Cabin Fever get all jazzy and soulful over a massive subby wobble, Feline adds an Original Sin style widescreen brashness to the mix while K Jah takes us back to Bristol for science class detention. Five absolute jammers right here, Natty Dub don't muck around mate.
