Review: Murder He Wrote straight out of Manchester brings a second version to his self titled 'Murder He Wrote' collection of tracks and bangers. Where the first compilation took in some production highlights that dated back to 2016, part two brims with two brand spanking new originals in "Tweet" and "Frozen", while the six others have all been lifted from the guy's massive Roska Kicks & Snares back cat. It provides a step back from the vocal heavy tunes from the producer of late, with the MHW returning to his roots in sub-bass, drums and percussion fully designed for the club.

Yes, OK! / Slow It Down
Yes, OK! - (4:31) 128 BPM Hot
Slow It Down - (4:12) 130 BPM
Review: Next up from the UK's most legendary funky imprint in Roska Kicks & Snares, a moody dive into the more minimal end of the spectrum, welcoming the whomping subs and smoothly forged drum ideas of Samiel with this smokey two-track display. First up, glittering percussive ticks and sliding sub chomps take a hold during 'Yes, OK!', a refreshing look at UK Funky, jam-packed with pad-sounding treats and warm bass notation. Next, a rave-ready stomper as 'Slow It Down' delivers a combination of choppy, high energy drum arrangement with warbling LFO lines to match, closing this 2-tracker off with a dash of additional energy.

Review: Roska's fifth album - Late Nights, Early Flights - takes a captivating instrumental journey through the realms of UK Funky and beyond. With grooves for days, the album explores various styles within the genre, emphasising the melodic side with spacious drums, incorporating orchestral soundscapes, and showcasing a percussive flair, all while maintaining a playful and club-ready vibe. Inspired by a successful tour of Asia, Roska channels his love for red-eye flights into the studio, creating something enjoyable and fun that in equal parts goes deep, heavy, techy and dubbed-out while always remaining atmospheric.

Review: Whenever a new one lands on the infamous RKS imprint, we hold our collective breath, as we know for a fact the energy levels are about to rise. This time around, KTM touches down with more original funky energy, opening with the charming melodic drifts and low-ended drum slams of 'Balance', with the more minimal percussive pressures of 'Distance' in close pursuit. Next, a combination of tribal-sounding drum marches and smooth melodic swipes on 'Look', with the warbling subs of 'Love Dem', then provided a serious switch up in energy next. Finally, two additional heaters, as the more half-time sounding rhythms of 'One Step' and slower kick slams of the title track 'Progress' round the EP off with a final splash of original funky energy. Awesome work.

Better Be - (4:48) 127 BPM
Frustration - (4:56) 87 BPM
Scribbles - (3:42) 130 BPM Hot
Review: What better way to kick start the year than to land a lethal dosage of UK Funky on your own imprint, that also happens to be the finest in the game? That is exactly what Roska is up to as 'Better Be' delivers a squelching squeeze through west-coast style synth melodies and euphoric chord progressions, kicking off the EP with a high dosage of original funky energy. Next, 'Frustration' a more minimal take on the classic funky sound, focussing on uniquely designed synthesiser pokes and bass stabs, before the project draws to a close on 'Scribbles', a low-ended goliath that packs a serious punch for the ravers. After this many years at the top of the tree, it's safe to say there really is no better UK funky veteran!

Review: When it comes to UK funky, there isn't a label that can really hold a candle to RKS, the structure within which the legendary Roska has been able to help push, shape and mould the UK funky scene over the past decade. This latest edition of their 'UK Funky Collection' series sees Roska invite the best in the business on board for a fiery selection, with heavyweight names such as DJ Naughty, Toddla T, SPD, DJ Polo, Jook 10 and more all landing with some seriously hard hitting contributions, once again re-establishing the RKS dominance factor. We also see the long awaited return of the legendary Hardhouse Banton with two highly anticipated heaters in 'Colonel' and Roska's remix of 'Reign'. It's a joyous collection of work, showing just how much life there is within the UK funky circle, with highlights including DJ MA1's percussive masterclass in 'Mutombo' and KTM's minimal majesty on 'Dark Knight'.

Heung-Min Son Interlude - (2:03) 131 BPM
Review: The king himself Roska has once again delivered two slices of funky goodness with this wicked new project, exploring two eastern-inspired rollers, cascading with original melody and stunning drum work throughout. First up, 'Curious' gives us a very sub-heavy design, focussing on whirling bass notation and unique rhythmic assistance from some super original sound design. The party then intensifies as 'Heung-Min Son Interlude' then delivers a more stripped back approach, focussing on a bulbous 808-driven leading bassline and catchy vocal samples to match. Two more absolute weapons from the UK funky forefather.

Mission Complete - (3:42) 130 BPM
Review: It has been over 5 years since the legendary Roska last released a full instrumental project via his home imprint of RKS, so you can imagine our excitement for this one. Featuring four absolute sizzlers, Roska comes out of the gate swinging, kickstarting the show with the eastern-inspired arrangements and jumpy drum textures of 'Count Me Out Fam', doused with lively bassline action below. From here, the title track 'Ice Cold' slumps into view, exploring a much more melodic approach which sees Roska really flex his production muscles, before his brother KTM makes a very enjoyable appearance on the dancefloor driven themes of 'FaceTime'. Finally, 'Mission Complete' rounds off the project in style, utilizing hard-hitting bass energy and tidy drum expressions to get the job done.

Intro (Fresh & Clean - Zed Bias remix) - (5:18) 130 BPM Hot
Review: What more could we ask for eh? Roska and Serocee link up once again, this time for a dancehall delight entitled 'Intro', seeing Roska expand his production range yet again into a slower yet incredibly impactful bashment design. Serocee arrives with the perfect vocal for this one, providing a super rhythmic line which brings the whole track to life. Now, in addition to this, Zed Bias had to get involved, providing a sumptuous UKG flip of the original track, throwing Serocee's vocal into an autotune unit with some incredible results. Both versions of the track are instant killers in our opinion, adding two more crackers to the long list of RKAS bangers!

This is a real lesson in the breadth of UK funky, from the minimal, percussive lead sounds of 'Club Soda' and 'Watch The Tempo', to the beautiful vocals of both 'Lapse' alongside Roska and Maddy Ellerby and 'Say It Twice'. From here 'Stopwatch' gives us some experimental flavours, alongside the nostalgic piano lines of 'Smokes & Lazers' and crunchy LFO action of 'Watch the Tempo'. Finally, 'That Love' provides us with a euphoric drift between potent subs and colourful percussive patterns, rounding off an excellent selection indeed.

Review: Despite their incredibly consistent catalogue, it feels like Roska Kicks & Snares as an imprint has become even more special over the past year or so, with every new release levelling up the labels output. For their next selection, we see them welcome MOTU for a vibrant 8 track selection simply entitle 'Motu Collection', showcasing his quite frankly outstanding skillset, jam-packed with rhythmic gems left right and centre. From the wavy bass manoeuvres of 'Screwball' to the more carnival style drum work of 'Yeah Riddim' and stripped percussive magnificence of 'KCU', MOTU well and truly has UK funky covered. We also wanted to send a nod to the vocal collaborations on this one, as Nico Lindsay returns in fine from on 'Have To Know' alongside Killa P's electric performance on 'Tek Weh' and the mega collaborative flavours of 'Move', featuring PRM Project, DJ Polo, Roska & Blase Vanguard.
