Nuusic

Manchester-based Nuusic is a drum and bass and jungle label that’s put a clear stamp on its deep, dark and dirty, gun finger-inducing sound since 2018. The up-and-coming label, co-run by Joe Mac, Jungglah and Rafiki Dubs, has dropped bombs from selectors: Teej, Jappa, Disrupta, Conrad Subs, Kumo, Too Greezey, Motiv and more.

Jungle Jam EP
Jungle Jam - (4:28) 175 BPM Hot
Rinse Out - (4:27) 175 BPM
Murder Tune - (4:27) 58 BPM
Format - (3:46) 175 BPM
Review: Usually known for more jumpier takes on D&B - especially with his 2Ton project - Corrupted Mind follows up the Jungle Jam single with a full EP of the same gully, uncompromised and blistering breakbeat jungle style. Each cut gnarlier than the last, Nuusic's signature fizzy energy has been reimagined in an exciting way as CM goes in on all the little details: 'Rinse Out' comes with serious tension, 'Murder Tune' is all about the militant percussion while 'War Cry' is just pure bassline aggression. What an EP!

Jungle Jam - (4:28) 175 BPM
Review: Following releases on the likes of Grand Theft Audio and DnB Allstars, Corrupted Mind comes charging headfirst into Nuusic HQ with the first single from his forthcoming EP - 'Jungle Jam'. Living up to its name, the track is a rampant breakbeat assault with choppy cuts and a relentless sense of dark energy. Complete with added drama from the strings and vocal sample and it's a perfect snapshot of where this young UK artist is at. High grade.

Review: As 2023 starts to wrap up, Manchester label Nuusic take the time to reflect on the year they've had and bring their many releases together in one comprehensive collection. Looking back over key releases such as Guzi's album Goldstone Life, Grimesy's 'Voices' and Conrad Subs' 'Don't Blame The DJ', there's a powerful range of party starters, bubblers, skankers and slappers. To pick just a few highlights from 30 is pretty hectic, but Tweakz' jazzy planet stamper 'Love & loyalty', Rise's creeped out 'Intertwined' and Guzi & Epicentre's walloping 'Rate My Switch' are a great place to start. If you've got any holes in your Nuusic collection, now's your chance to get stuck in.

Review: Buss out your brolly, grab your galoshes, wriggle them wellies; Sola are back on Nuusic, they're bringing their pals, and they really couldn't give a monkeys about the weather. A thoughtful, well-measured grizzly head-nodder, 'Dance In The Rain' sees them linking with long-time friend Jfal and MC-du-jour Freddy B. It sets the perfect scene for the rest of the EP: loveable jungle rogue Conrad Subs links in for the almighty 'Squeeze' AND a killer remix of 'Dance In The Rain' while Sola go solo for some addictive skanky panky on 'Ska Tissue'. Perfect, whatever the weather.

Review: Live, laugh, love: Tweakz breaches the helm at Nuusic once again and the result is a sensual jungle-influenced collection of vibrant buzzy rollers and skank-ups. Musical and soulful to its very core but unabashed in its energy and ruff-house charm, 'Love & Loyalty' slams with wild breaks and big 60s style ripples and shimmers, 'Gangsta' strips things down to something much darker and more tense while 'Heavenly' brings things back round with big pads, dreamy vocals and chords. Through in a beef and drama free remix of Teej and Slay and you've got yourself a lovely package. Loyalty pays.

Review: Guzi goes for gold with his second album. As teased by the sampler EPs Nuusic have dropped over the last few weeks, it's a full multi-genre affair ranging from his signature D&B to house to grime to breaks to those awesome tracks that transition you from fast to slow. Packed with ravey flavours and references to the foundations (that were dug a good few years before he was even born) it's a massively accomplished EP collection and a showcase of just how on-point Guzi is when it comes to banger craft. Highlights include the politically-minded hardcore stomp-up 'Dance All Day', the beautiful transition track 'Deposition' and the Pulse-X style turbo grime stamps and bashes of 'Strawberry Milkshake'. And that's not even the tip of this epic rave-burg. Guzi's unstoppable right now.

Goldstone Life LP Sampler Pt.3
Trendsetter - (3:22) 175 BPM Hot
Same Way - (3:30) 140 BPM
Review: Science has proven that guns come out when the sun is out. This being the case we'd better get our uzi's out when Guzi's out and about. This is the level of gun finger business at play here as Nuusic continue to ooze this slew of new Gooz. His new album, three samplers deep, the bigger picture is coming into view; this is a gully multiverse where Guzi takes us in kinds of tempo directions and styles and influences. These two tracks are a perfect example as T-Man gets on board with a brilliant turbo flow on the hardcore style 'Trendsetter' and Killa P brings the heat and harmonies over a tense and bashy grime piece 'Same Way'. From foundation rave to grime futurism, this Goldstone album is living up to is name. Get your uzis out.

Guzi & Epicentre - "Rate My Switch" - (4:06) 174 BPM
Guzi & Sum - "On Fiya" - (5:06) 160 BPM
Review: Man like Guzi is all set to drop his album on Nuusic very very soon and these are the type of full-strength flavours you can expect from the man. A tempo-melting eclectic experience loaded with plenty of collabos, Goldstone Life will flex the full spectrum and this second sampler is proof. While the last sampler focused on some of the 140 style vibeage, this one focuses on some of the many high level link-ups he has in store. Conrad Subs brings some firing jungle energy on 'Selector', Epicentre gets stuck in with the big synth blazing tear-up 'Rate My Switch' while SuM tags in with a more hardcore-influenced blazer 'On Fiya'. Scorchio!

Goldstone Life LP Sampler Pt. 1
1 4 T - (2:44) 140 BPM
Guzi - "You Can Do It" - (3:01) 140 BPM Hot
Review: This latest Sampler pack from the Goldstone Life project sure packs a punch as Guzi, Beskar and the vocal prowess of Vitamin G join forces across two sizzling original heaters. We open up with '1 4 T', an old school crossover between original grimey rhythms and more digitised synthetic structures, driven by cold production techniques and the super skippy vocal approach of Vitamin G, toasting the track nicely. Following on from a voluptuous half time switch up, we then move into 'You Can Do It', a seriously vibrant chopper, focussing on whistling synthesiser melodies and intense 2-step drum rolls, giving us an even more punchy feeling than the A-side. Awesome work!

A man who lives up to his name, Rise has featured on a number of labels including Onyx, Classified and Liondub to name a few but right now all eyes and ears on this stunning collection that ranges from delicious rave vibes ('In Your Arms') to groaning, monster dancefloor mutations ('Intertwined') Complete with a crucial Trex remix, this is a massive buy-on-sight situation.

Review: Hearing 'Voices' in your head? Then you're clearly a Grimesy fan. Upping the ante with every dispatch, this return to Nuusic is arguable his most accomplished and widest ranging collection to date as he rinses through the D&B menu and showcases all of his styles... 'Who You Are' is a big hands-in-the-air vocal work out, 'Time To Let Go' is a sub-drenched slice of futurism, 'Soundboy Run' is a straight up soundsystem rinser while 'Treading On Your Soul' closes the EP on another lighter raising sizzle session. Big.

Review: Saxxon and Teej on Nuusic... Do we need to say any more at this juncture? Everything about this one bangs hard with uncompromising, grubby, rabble-rousing funk and energy as the two hugely respected craftsmen link up for the first time. 'Soundkill' has an energy and vibe that's not dissimilar to the early 2000s Bingo Beats style with its ricochet elements and funk stabs. Meanwhile 'Akuma' sees Saxxon getting stuck in on a previous Teej joint with deadly effects. Killer sounds!

Review: The unstoppable Subster returns with yet more beefy breakbeat bangers to slap liberally on your chops. Four cuts, four opportunities to wheel up and wind up your dancefloor as Conrad tells us how it is. 'Don't Blame The DJ' sets the tone with a sick GQ sample and a warning about leaky roofs. 'Good Good Dub' brings a little dubwise skanky panky to the mix while 'IPS' goes for that old school stabby vibe with precision and tension. Finally man like Aries steps up for a ridiculously sick remix of Conrad's previous Nuusic outing 'Little Vibey Thing'. Don't blame the download store if this melts your next dancefloor.

Highlights include ELLM's Danny Byrd style VIP twist-up of 'Soundboy', Arkala Dre's slinky prowler 'Pirate Radio', Epicentre and Guzi's devastatingly huge and ironically titled 'Little Roller', the creepy tension and eerie feels of Geekcroft's 'Turn It'. The list goes on and on...

'Headstart' features T Man and goes straight in for the solar plexus with its rudeness and forthright focus. Deeper into the vibe we slide as 'Lift Me Up' gets all slinky, 'Stand & Deliver' is all about the Cutty Ranks style vocal, rubber ball bassline and crispy clean vibe while 'My Sound' brings the EP to sunkissed close with sweet reggae vocals, bright horns and a festival-style sense of momentum.

Complete with an instrumental for added mixing creativity, Nuusic smash the jacksy off this once again.

Pairing up High Frequency and Conrad Subs, the whole collection bubbles across their solo pieces and co-labs: 'Nation' is big warm skanky banger, 'Ignite' purrs with tension and drama, 'Give It To Me' is a hype-inducing full-thrust ravey shake-down while High Frequency's remix of 'In Check' finishes the EP with nothing but a fat jacksy bassline and sweet shakers sent from heaven. Check in and ignite the dance today.

Review: New sickness from Nuusic right now as Teej whips up more 'Drama' than an Eastenders omnibus. Linking with the unstoppable Slay for the title track, we warm up with a Frank Butcher weight bubbler before getting gradually stinkier and stinkier with bumpers like 'Coin Toss', a grumpier-than-Dot-Cotton VIP of '16 Speakers' (with Jappa) and gully-assed flip of 'Duppy' by man like DJ Hybrid. Just when you thought dnb didn't need any more drama, turns out we were wrong.

Review: To cap off their three-part anniversary celebrations, Nuusic are laying down the heat on instalment number three. Teej has been one of the main players throughout this series, and with 'War Cry', a minimal roller with the guts of a lion and the roar of one too, as finger-clicking drums bear the weight of something much heavier, a snarling bassline that moves in devilish twists and turns. The vibes are also seriously real on J Select's cut, a spacious number that moves in gruff fits and starts, a barking cut with a catchy sample that smacks of proper rave memories. There's luscious depth on 'Always Be Mine', Speaker Louis and Epicentre finish off the series with the stuttering breaks of 'Unity'. What an LP series and congrats to the crew on three years.

Review: Part two of the Nuusic anniversary celebration, and the halfway point is just as good as the first instalment. It's more of the label's most standout tracks from the last three years, and Conrad Subs' 'Little Vibey Thing' is right up there with the best of them, a swing-heavy vocal-led jungle number that's formed of swelling bass touches, crunchy drum lines and a nonchalant gem of a vocal, one that's halfway between hip-hop and soul. Margaman's 'Teach The Roots' is a masterclass in simple vibes, with a clean percussive centre and edges that wallow in bassy reggae, all of which is deliciously built into a crescendo with a superb build-up. Proper dancefloor stuff.

Review: Nuusic have been around for a grand total of three years now, and a three-part celebration of that fact is now here. This is the first instalment and it's a beauty, with a whole host of artists from the Nuusic orbit stepping up to lay down some serious heat. That's what's on offer here and it's a cut from Kumo - 'Skeng Riddim' - that really steals the show, as inch-perfect stepping percussion murderously underpins a rap-driven, bloated bassline sound which drips urban force from every corner. Serious Wretch 32 vibes on this one. Conrad Subs has two tracks, including a wicked rework of garage classic 'Bump & Grind', and Teej also has several contributions; 'Hydro' being the naughtiest, a drawn-out roller covered in old-school class. Yes lads.

Rather than a copy-paste exercise, Nuusic and Jak are living up to their reputations by bringing four unique, differentiated cuts to the table. 'Siren' feat Kumo is the pick of the bunch, as a rolling Break-esque drum line cuts through a sparsely arranged but effectively spacious array of Sofa Sound-type bass nodes. Proper sick, and there's clicky tech funk on 'Snow', jump-up force on 'Lace Up' and sub-heavy, sine-wobbling goodness on 'Akimbo'. Big.

From the stripped back minimalism and restrained growls of 'Don't Want This To End' to the much dreamier intro and sudden vocal tease of 'Free' via the slinky sunny-side up dancehall flexes of 'Playback Riddem'. And that's before we get to the Teej-collaborated title track 'El Sizzlo'. Trippy, fun and precision in the space department, this will singe serious whiskers when the dances open again.

Review: This four-tracker from long-time producer Octo-Pi is impressive in that it manages to do a lot with quite little. Its core components - rolling drums, wobbly basslines - aren't exactly new to anyone, but its the basics of arrangement that give it such an infectious, catchy edge, and which make all of these tracks so memorable. 'The Hurt' gets things out the stocks quickly, with tumbling breaks on the intro that juxtapose the paciness of its main percussive line, and these drums underpin a ferocious set of low frequency oscillations. 'Pogo Stick', featuring Teej, is the only standout, as a choppy arrangement blasts its way along with serious swagger, a weighty number that's dying to be thrown into the mix.

Review: Conrad Subs has been teasing his next album over the last few weeks and finally it's here, courtesy of Nuusic, and boy what an LP it has turned out to be. Conrad Subs is very confident when it comes to constructing break beats and so it should come as no suprise that they make up a large part of Tides, to excellent effect. 'On a 90s Tip' is an especially potent track, with that classic rave piano sound driving an inch-perfect set of drums and a rolling reece bass. 'Obese' is yet more spectacular stepping sonics, whilst 'Little Vibey Thing' blends R&B vocal infuences with juddering drums and punchy, unforgetablly catchy bass stabs. It's a raw, gritty album and not one to be missed.

Review: Conrad Subs has been doing his thing for quite some time and ahead of his latest album, this time on Nuusic, he's dropping samplers, and this is the second. It's a superb effort as well and he's joined in said effort by Redders, an MC known for his work with Sam Binga and others, and who is on top form here. 'I Got Somethin' rolls out with a heavy dose of attitude, Redders' urban-tinged style dredging up touches of hip-hop as well as funk and dancehall and he sits expertly above Conrad's bouncing, moody beat. The flip is classic jungle and Conrad excels on this terrain, his penchant for breakbeats shining through amidst a stabby rendition of broken dancefloor pressure. This album is going to be immense.

Review: The ever prolific Conrad Subs has an album coming on Nuusic and this sampler is the first glimpse we're seeing of what is certain to be a wicked longer player, especially when bearing in mind the diversity of style on this single. 'Little Vibey Thing' is seriously unique, with a beautifully soulful, modern hip-hop vocal sample that sits above a stabbing bassline and a funky, infectious drum line. This tune is certainly a vibey thing. 'Superior', on the other hand, is a straight jungle banger that doesn't let up from its rollicking amen breaks. Big.

Review: Nuusic are a fantastic little label that have really burst out the stocks over the last couple of years, releasing a plethora of music with the common thread of rudeness and an inability to stand still. Kumo is jumping on this heritage with vigour this week, and Born Soldier rolls out across four tracks with a jumpy attitude that we're incredibly sad won't be heard on a danceflloor anytime soon.'Skeng Riddim' is an absolute percy, as a two-step drum pattern takes you in to a funky, flowing hip-hop arrangement with serious bite. 'Born Soldier' is packed out in the lows, straining against itself the whole way, whilst 'Virus' is another naught little roller. This one pops.

Review: Vici is a French artist who really showed his true colours for the first time on Hyperactivity Music a couple of years back, and now he's on Nuusic displaying a different but no less excellent side to his productions. Stay True is a four-tracker with guts but that's not afraid to have fun, as he ropes in Matt Tracker and Speaker Louis to explore the dividing line betweeen tough, gritty music and lighter touches of funk and soul. 'Dark Path' falls into the former category with its scattered breaks and stabbing samples, whilst 'Stay True' is a brass-laden roller with wind in its hair and a heart on its sleeve. Lovely.

Review: Nuusic are a fairly new label that really don't mess around and their output tends to land on the tougher, more dancefloor orientated end of the spectrum. Akuma by Teej and featuring Jappa, Disrupta and Riko Dan continues that trend, with four big cuts that are definitely set to blow up the dance. 'Akuma' has a distinctly Serum vibe to it, with a stuttering jungle break and a warped, stabby bassline that contorts itself around every corner of the range. 'War Cry' takes things more rolling with a wicked, snapping snare and a wobbling wall of sine basses to back it up, bringing a lovely clean feeling that's also on '16 Speakers'. Wicked.

The title tune is our favourite, with a deathly combination of wobbling sines, smacking snare hits and gilded twists of reese bass. it's a fantastically satisfying track with a level of movement that all the best jungle has.

Motiv is holding up that standard with his debut EP on the label and he's doing it in style, something clear right from the start of this EP. 'Gallows' reels you in with a lovely intro, it's upbeat beginnings quickly regressing to a really sick wall of pure energy that's reminiscent of Kings of the Rollers and insanity more generally. The rest of the release is equally aggressive, 'Fakes' being another highlight. Sick release.

Five tracks long, Karma is a moody, raw release that would undoubtedly sound fat through a soundsystem. This is especially true for track one, 'Origin', a diving, sub-heavy piece of work that gargles on the stabs and bounces on the hits. 'Fire' featuring Zoro has a cool, steppy beat pattern and even bigger bassline to match. Top stuff.

Grimesy is the man of the hour this time around and his EP covers multiple fields, with 'Tribal' as bonkers, steppy banger with a bassline that rips and tears itself around the arrangement. The title track features T-Man and is equally as rough, with an old-school drum sound and a slick vocal overlap, all of which compliment a guttural bassline. The other two are also wicked - shouts to the Nuusic crew.

Review: Nuusic have proven that they're more than capable of releasing tunes which don't mess about but which carry an air of respectability as well, music that's for the dancefloor but that doesn't sacrifice itself for that purpose. Kumo fits in with that trend. The Pinger is a release full of stripped back, industrial sounds but that still actually sounds really nice, a T>I esque four-tracker that's weighted in all the right places. Bonus points for the background bongos on 'Stubbed'.

Review: Not to be confused with the Julia Roberts classic, the Sound of Nuusic isn't a Bavarian epic but instead a UK underground epic of compilation sized proportions, with a whole raft of underground talents offering up a diverse concoction of jungle flavours. With Conrad Subs making several appearances, his stand-out contribution is 'Leave Dem', with a funked-up loping introduction that's seriously smooth but which quickly devolves into a stuttering balance of breaks and reece bass action. There's wicked jungle contributions from Kumarachi and RMS as well as Sheffield upstart Charla Green, whose knock-down breaks carry some serious weight. This is a must-listen for anyone who likes their jungle music.

Review: Epicentre isn't an artist we're overly familiar with, but we certainly hope to become so after hearing the quality of this release. 'Deng' features MC Haribo, an increasingly popular MC and someone who sounds sick above a minimal beat which is exactly what 'The Deng' is: growling, groaning basses providing the backdrop for a skipping, satisfying percussive run. 'Surely Dead' is on a junglist tip featuring upbeat, ragga sampling and a wobbling bass on the drop that comes out of nowhere from the previously happy introduction. Both 'Jesus Farda' and 'Max Factor' are back on the minimal thing and both are sick as hell, the latter's pulsating back end taking the cake.

Review: We are thrilled to take a peek at this super sharp new project from Teej which goes by the name 'The Hydro', courtesy of the Nuusic imprint. We begin this four track journey with a darkened plunge into 'Hydro (feat MC Haribo)', which sets the zone perfectly with it's haunted textures and earth shattering sub leads. Next, we are given the pulsating bass patterns and sweeping scores of 'Resonance' before we vacate to the subtle neurotic synths of 'Stygian'. The EP then draws to a close with the rough cut nostalgic breaks and grizzly reese leads of 'Thunder Thighs', topping of a great body of work.
