Review: Mikey B and Krissy B first collaborated under the B Squared moniker last November. Now we finally have a follow-up, better late than never and all that, and they have clearly lost none of their mutual spark. "Never 2 Busy" is a hyperactive 136bpm banger that fuses soulful RnB vocals and chords with demented 2 step and jagged bass. Elsewhere "Fair & Square" keeps up the pace with jackhammer 4 x 4 beats and warbling female vocals, "All I Need" brings us skippy beats with mechanical wobble basslines and finally "Find You" is hard bounce with chipmunk vocals. Knackered yet?

Review: You've not heard of B Squared then? Don't worry - it's the alias of Mikey B and Krissy B's brand new collaboration. Together they've rustled up four dance-floor bombs: the hoover bass shuffle of "It's In You", the skippy hype of "Baby", the jagged 4x4 attack "Wired" and the softer, more melodic "Square Root". We reckon we'll be hearing a lot more from this pair!

Earthquake (feat Lost Propz) - (3:49) 136 BPM
from $1.95
Review: Constantly dealing out killer versions on his Soundcloud and teasing us with dubs that seem to be lurking in the A-list forever ("Rizla" anyone?), northern powerhouse Brent Kilner delivers some serious goods on Second To None. With its MC-samples and broken glass bass riff "Shots On The Scene" is a straight up ode to bassline in all its 4x4 glory. "Wheel Up" adds a jazzier twist to the chords that tap into the original UKG foundations while "Earthquake" fuses in a little breakbeat murkery and grime energy. Shots fired.

Review: Of late Louis Richardson aka bass hero Hypho has started to including two new tracks per release, a sign he's getting more prolific. On the "Hyper EP" we get the smokin', tokin' half-time title track that boasts some urban cred courtesy of Haribou's low-key rap. "Ekko" meanwhile is more your traditional dubstep but with added mechanical intricacies. Remix-wise Vital Techniques perk things up with some steppy dub vibes and Smoked Out Fox delivers the EP highlight - all dark bass throbs and knife-like hi-hats.

Onix - "Pressure" - (4:22) 132 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.95
Review: Here we have a mini label showcase with Second To None presenting two sizzlers by two top names on their roster. First up Northern powerhouse Brent Kilner slam-dunks the sped-up RnB vocals, big breakdowns and relentless wobble of "What 2 Do" straight into our ears. Meanwhile the shady Onix goes slower and heavier with the percussive 4x4 pounder "Pressure". Fierce beats.

from $1.95
Review: Just when we thought we'd have nothing but The Duke album to listen to all summer, fierce Manchester bass buster Krissi B returns with the messianic "The Christ EP" to keep things fresh. There's less of a footwork vibe here though, instead he's gone back to a ferocious, if a bit old skool, wobble-heavy 4x4 sound on "The Power Of Christ". Things don't let up on the digital flipside either, with "Yeahhh" merging nasty, stabby bass and skittering garagey beats. Dancefloor mayhem!

Smoke (feat Mikey B) - (4:33) 136 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
from $1.95
Review: If anywhere is providing a credible challenge to Bristol's bass crown, it's Leeds and here we have that city's newest contender, Oliver Livsey, with two new jams on the Second To None label. "Disconnected" is an assured 4 x 4 pounder that neatly twists in some subtle 2-step and dubstep breaks into the mix. "Smoke" on the other hand, sees Livsey collaborate with bass hero Mikey B, and is a super melodic jam with skippy beats, female RnB vocals and accelerated catchy basslines. One to watch!

Review: More solid bass goodness here courtesy of the Second To None crew. Livesy clashes here big style with Rude Jude with some seriously funky sparks flying about. The 90s are all over this EP like rash with "Crazy" being the perfect Moschino-clad skippy UKG (with a hint a modern wobble too). Elsewhere "Can We Go There" fuses soulful yearning with thumping speed garage, whilst Pallace turn it into melodic electro-house. The title track also gets remixed, with Palize turning in some classic-sound piano house and Holly finishes with a cheeky hardcore-rave-meets-trap rework.

Goblin Shark - (4:44) 140 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
BUY
West Coast - (4:39) 140 BPM
from $1.95
Review: A couple of monsters here from the enchantingly entitled Megalodon, on the Second To None label, which hark back to a mid-noughties Caspa sound, whilst retaining a unique edge. "Goblin Shark" is all ribbiting bass, tripping metallic breaks and occasional barking SFX, with a weighty bassline adding pressure from below. "West Coast" adds a bit more Skream into the proceedings, with a bubbling, raucous b-line, low-slung sweeping atmospherics and razor sharp snares.

From Me (feat Ray Dee) - (4:20) 136 BPM
from $1.95
Review: Some say the B stands for brutal. Others say it stands for beef. We reckon it stands for badman as he reminds us once again on Second To None. Digging deep into his Niche roots, cuts like "Endlessly" and "Caught Up" are ruthlessly heavy with their four-beat energy and riffy drive. If you fancy a little more sass to your bash then vocal two-step cuts "Behind Closed Doors" and "Forget Your Name" will both hit your (UK)G-spot. Needs more house? Jump straight on "From Me". You won't be disappointed.

Review: While he might not be a name to receive all the latest hype and background chatter, the UK's Mikey B has been a strong presence on the wider bass scene throughout the last ten years. Coming through with the first mutations of grime into dubstep, the man has been perfecting and refining to achieve the diversity of sounds found on this latest LP. Evolution is a journey, or rather, a DJ set in and of itself; all sorts of bass squelching can be found across its seventeen bangers, all of which have their roots firmly locked onto the dancefloor. In fact, play this whole damn killer out at a party, and you don't even need a DJ. Hybrid cuts for the modern ear - yes, yes, Mikey!

Review: Usually found remixing the likes of Skream with his production pal Mikey B, rare solo Sketchi outings are a more basic to basics gig. Here the bass and grime meister serves up two lean and mean left hooks - the spacey wobble of "Ak's" and the deep doom-dub of "Badman".

Review: Generally busy with production partner Mikey B, solo outings by Sketchi are rare as hen's teeth. So it's all the more exciting when they do arrive, and here on first-single-in-ages, I Know, he doesn't disappoint. His aforementioned co-producer even makes an appearance on the dreamy off-kilter house of "Don't You Care?" Elsewhere he's left to his own devices but equally shines on the likes of the brooding, tribal UKF monster "Axe Kick" and the sweeping melancholy of spacey 2-stepper, "Conquer". A class above.

Review: For this one, Leeds based bass outfit: Second To None team up with the rapidly rising local sounds of Sketchi & Bluff for a vibrant single entitled 'Shaolin Shadow'. As a composition we are driven down a grimey route, accompanied by shiny 8bit synth patterns, loosely sliding square wave synths and skippy drum routines. This release also comes complete with an electrifying drum & bass rethink, bringing together a collection of crazy synths for a jump up jamboree.

They've certainly done that here, presenting 12 bleeding edge cuts for listening pleasure. Highlights include the linear, up-and-down hoover bass joint "Live My Life" by Deadbeat UK, Mikey B's heavy and eccentric 2-step gem "I Wonder" and Vital Techniques own deep bass workout, "News To Me".

Review: Second To None Music have chosen the right name for their label. These guys should not be underestimated, and their output is among the best UK bass, garage and funky that we have heard recently. This statement compilation is simply putting them on a lot of people's radars, and getting the to know that absolutely nobody at their HQ is messing around when it comes to relaxing fresh bangers for the UK's dance floors. The music is wild and diverse, ranging from pure bassline to UK funky, and there are certainly plenty of noticeable artists and known faces here, including neb-dancehall specialist Deadbeat, Mikey B, B Squared, and Hypho. If you're into the British way of doing house, then this twist up will surely satisfy.

Review: Vital Techniques have had a top draw year so far, dropping some of the scenes biggest releases across both the grime & bassline spheres. Here they return for a high energy two track bass party, beginning with the old school sounds of 'All The Time' which smashes together electronic vocal slices and almost eski-like lead subs, resulting in a super groovy movement. On the flip, the more UKG inspired composition of 'Be Real'; takes hold, which focuses on classic organ chord progressions, vocal melodies and some seriously skippy drum arrangements, rounding off a great two track project.

There are three new tunes here that have already gained support from the likes of Marcus Nasty, Flava D, Hatcha and Dappa: "No Way" is fast and furious 4 x 4 with buzzsaw bass, with swishy pads, bouncy kicks and string stabs, "Jenga" is slower, deeper and more mystical and finally the title track is on full rave alert -big drops, merciless bass frequencies and speedy beats.

Review: Leeds duo Vital Techniques clearly believe in quality not quantity. Working hard on a follow-up to February's Bad Man Ting, their Battleground EP has finally arrived. The title track starts things strong, with swaggering brass stabs, rat-tat-tat drums, delirious spinouts and oodles of bass frequencies. Next, "Clear Vision" sees the guys pair up with Mikey B for some lively UKF fire - all wobble bass, skippy beats, a sprinkling of 2-step and lots of pitched RnB vocals. "Something Happening" meanwhile is a harder beast; delivering tough and fast 4 x 4 action with relentless bass mayhem and aggro MC flows. Edgy!

Review: Second To None headmasters take us back to school with three broadsword 130 bass four-steppers "Spin The Dubplate" kicks with classic strutting UKG beats but rumbles the horns and harmonic bass of grime while MC Pean spits down the law chapter and verse. "Mucky" dips much lower into the bass swamp with a classic organ-style squelch guiding us through spacious, switchy drum arrangement. "Cloud 9" flips the contrast button with a superb breakbeat garage roller laded with crisp soulful vocals. Hypho brings the damage on his "Spin The Dubplate" for bonus grades. Power up.

Review: Leeds bass junkies Vital Techniques are back to work on their Second To None imprint and, in fact, it would be fair to say that this new EP is a clear mark of their confidence and panache behind the mixing board. Calling any tune "Gunfingers In The Air" is pretty much a sure sign that you know what you're on about when it comes to deathly bass shots, and the same can be said for the more house-centric vibes of "Get Down". "No One Else" is a perfect hybrid" between dubstep and garage, all sped up and full of mutant dread, whereas "Prisoner" comes through with a much sexier, sleeker garage banger with that unmistakably early 00s r&b touch.

Review: Vital Techniques continue their exciting start to 2018 with this fantastic box of goodies entitled 'Taking The Piss' via the Second To None imprint. Featuring 4 original creations the full project is full of rave-ready material and is guaranteed to get the dance moving. The title track features a high energy vocal from the ever-ready MC Pean which sits perfectly above grinding bass synths and euphoric synth chords. Pean features again alongside Leeds city grime legend: Dialect for more electric vocals on the 'Supply and Demand' VIP. Following this we hear the demonic bass sounds of 'Hold On' and moogy patterns of 'Shadow Boxing'. This is a great overall project that even comes complete with the 'Taking The Piss' instrumental track.

Review: After a string of potent collaborations, Vital Techniques team up with the vicious vocal presence of MC Pean again for a weighty composition on their home imprint: Second To None. Across the introduction we are given grimey rhythms and smooth shells from Pean before sliding into a heavyweight bassline crescendo with lethal synth work and destructive drum processing. This a combo which seems to be able to do no wrong!

Review: Having already been dubbed 'fire' by Krissi B and also bigged up by Butterz, the hype around the Wait EP is growing. Back with a bang, the release kicks off with Vital Techniques' speedy hacksaw-bass jam, "Make Me Feel", before Mikey B's "Damage" delivers some seriously aggressive wobble action. Then they pair up for the orchestrated dubby 2-step gem, "Wait".
