Review: Soul Serious have pulled out a top notch project here as they put together Sunday Roast and Dub Solution for a heavyweight five track collection by the name of 'Dark Hour'. The title track itself is a house inspired roller, filled to the brim with pulsating sub pressure and subtle reesey stabs. Following this the percussive rhythms of 'Apple Jade' and the garage inspired drum designs of 'Hold Me' before landing on the heavyweight Moog leads and rounded drum works of 'Body'. The EP then finishes up in style with the techy textures and overwhelming sub positions of 'The Utiltys', a minimalized roller that packs a serious punch.

Review: There's something really rustic about Jook 10's material.

There's seldom more than four core elements in each of these jams, making them irresistible DJ tools, and just great heads down club fodder. Of the six on offer, the highlights include the mournful minor keys, nagging percussion and warped synths of "Skanka" and the chirpy Q&A of light/dark bassline on "Funky Junky".

Review: Our kid Roasty's got history with SoulSerious; pretty much every release has cried for attention and this is no exception. The title track pilfers a cheeky Groove Armada snippet that weaves and bobs amid an uncompromising four/four and some moombahton flavoured bleeps. Meanwhile "Alien Recon" takes a great, chant-like vocal and applies it to a really stark, tribal drum pattern and some evil alien stabs. "Venom" takes us past the point of no return with heavy old school hardcore synths and bruiseworthy bashy beat. And that's just half the EP; elsewhere you'll find savage bass blending with deep, twirling synths ("Yellow Box"), gritty sub-fuelled acid house ("Wanna Go Higher") and euphoric, bleepy, synth-driven house ("Blindmedia").

Review: Louie John isn't particularly well known yet, but he's starting to pick up a few plaudits for his varied EPs on Soulservice. The Broken Promise EP features more mixed-up takes on house and garage. The lead cut goes deep, delivering a loose-limbed fusion of broken drums, jazzy keys and tech-house FX. "To Be Seen", on the other hand, offers a contemporary take on the classic late '80s Inner City sound. "Limit" bases the action around a squidgy electrofunk bassline and some big room stabs, while "Deep thoughts" swings between deep house sassiness and acid house revivalisn.

Elsewhere we get prog-meets-wobble ("Late"), old-skool garage influences ("On Track") and best of all, doomy carnival frequencies ("Tragic").

Title track "Reasons Why We Do It" features dreamy fender rhodes chords and an infectious percussive loop - deep and lovely. Break 4 Love-style beats form the backbone of "Love Was Anyways", which is completed by a druggy female refrain and spacey synths. "Felix" is also a stand out with its unexpected electro-house direction.

The glistening intro of "Now We Can See" soon gives way to a murky, sub-pushing bass beat with some minimal, off-kilter rim hits that give it an even more eerie feel, while another favourite, "Roll On" is a straight up UK funky belter with Roska-esque claps hooking you in from the off. Rounded off by the beautifully hectic swirl of "Twisted 1", this EP is tropical heat of the highest order.

Review: With a breakthrough 2011 garnering radio support from none other than Rinse FM's Marcus Nasty, Jook 10 delivers another set of UKF bangers. With the whipcrack snares on display in "Suns Out", it's clear this producer is a don when it comes to percussion, something also displayed in the distinctly more tribal rhythms of "Peng", a trip into deeper UKF territory. "Scream" lives us to its name, with a banshee-like synth and tortured vocal sample creating a distinct jungle vibe, whilst "Minimal Dark" does its best to give listeners whiplash again with the sheer force of its raw snares.

"Dubdub" is a tropical beauty with detuned snares and kicks making for a bassy moodscape, plus there's a jacking and upfront Louie Johns mix of "Reel Free" included too.

Review: Dub Soloution gets deep and dingy from the very first beat of his Footprint EP, with the techy title-track combining smooth but dark house music with throbbing acid-tinged bass stabs. "Clear Your Fear" is an upright deep house jam driven by chord progressions, while "Fractions Of Time", can you believe it, samples Simian's hit "We Are Your Friends". "Tex" is the EP's super downbeat jam and sounds like it's been tailor made for the tiled Berlin nightclub, while "Just Tell Em" has a tribal feel with the 'ooh' sample sounding like it comes from Duke's pop hit "So In Love With You".

We are then gifted the super creative 'Wasps', a super colourful piece of 4x4 production, again packed with tribalistic perc themes and stunning low end processing. We look at the minimal skippy flavours of 'Like Rain' next, which works fantastically as the third part of the project.

This is his third EP since and offers up four more chunks of warm, club-ready retro-futurism inspired by the halcyon days of New York house and garage. The Reading-based producer hits the ground running with EP opener "Cherry Menthol", where jammed-out organ stabs ride a smooth and seductive late night deep house groove, before upping the tempo on the sub-heavy, warehouse-ready stomp of "Jays Bar". "Essentials" sees him successfully doff a cap to the early works of four-to-the-floor garage legend Todd Edwards, while "Push" is a classic slab of peak-time New York deep house that sounds like it could have been recorded sometime in the early 2000s.

Review: Reading-based Jook 10 has consistently delivered killer UKG/bassline bangers on Soulserious for a while now, with no long player in sight - until now that is. Darkside boasts 12 tracks and displays a real ability to fuse the funky and tropical with sparse, gritty textures. Highlights include the understated doom groove of the title track, the soundsystem -blowing bass of the wobble- heavy "Rah" and the snarling, rabid "Jookin". Top quality boss!

Love Is What We Need - (5:32) 123 BPM
Set Ya Free - (4:55) 124 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Party Music - (5:39) 125 BPM
Review: Is Smokey Bubblin that thing where you exhale a joint in water? Who knows how Mr Bubblin B got his name, but we do know he makes some seriously slammin' garagey house. "Love Is What We Need" is pulsating and urgent feelgood music with a gospel bent. "Set Ya Free" is classic retro diva house from the clubs of early '90s New York, and despite the title, "Party Music" actually ends things on a deep note, resulting in the EP's standout track.

Review: Soulserious label boss DJ Sunday Roast is always guaranteed to deliver a bumper-packed slap-up feast of a single each time round, complete with all the trimmings. This, his latest release, doesn't stray from this approach as we get a whopping six tracks to relish. The intensity of recent releases hasn't mellowed as shown in highlights like the thumping tribal stomp of "Take Two", the ferocious carnival wobble of "Tempo" and the intoxicating electro-voodoo beat of "Mind Set".

Review: Louie John knows which side his bread is buttered: Reading imprint Soulserious just love him and as a result, his many EPs for them have boasted an average of six tracks per release. We've remarked before on his love of that late '80s Inner City sound and "Find Me" sounds like Good Life put through a shredder and put back together again, all jumbled up. Elsewhere things get less obvious with many clever, playful and deep twists and turns from the mind-warping retro house of "They Here The" to the hypnotic sensual loops of "Reflected". Dive in!

Pick Me Up (2 step mix) - (4:49) 128 BPM
Jugular (bonus beats) - (6:09) 125 BPM
Review: Mr Bubblin B doesn't do subtle music, and when he possesses the skills to deliver dancefloor-crippling party bangers why on earth would he? Back once again on Soulserious, this new two tracker is like a more raw meat being flung to the ravenous raving lions - "Pick Me Up" comes in two forms: the Gypsy Woman-esque organ-led wail-a-thon 4x4 version and murkier 2 step mix (massive diva sample intact, natch). "Jugular" is a dark and dirty DJ tool, which is a lot more appetising than it sounds, trust us.

Review: Sometimes a record's title really does hit the nail on the head and this is certainly one of them. The Earthquake EP contains six cuts of soil-shifting, earth-shaking peak time weapons from Reading's dub house outfit: the title track sets tropical snare rolls to a menacing wobble baseline, "Angry Wasps" keeps the tropical vibe, but boasts an insistent 4/4 house beat and ferocious Wasp synth line. Elsewhere we get displays of funky-house ("Rinsa Nova") and even moombahton ("Riddim Teacha") that's bound to satisfy bass fans of all persuasions.

Review: The enigmatic sounds of Sunday Roast return to Soulserious for another sumptuous selection as the 'Tecky Eks' EP is unveiled. We begin with experimental techy vibes of 'Arise', followed by the more scattered rhythms of the title track 'Tecky Eks'. Next up, more tech inspired funky goodness in 'All Temper' before we land on 'Ritual' which takes the classic 'Renegade Master' sample and funks it out with vibrant percussive flows and growling subs. Finally we finish up with cowbell grooves and precisely layered synthesis of 'Yomes', bringing a smooth landing to a great project!

Review: Much to our delight, we here see Far From Perfect make an explosive return to the Soulserious imprint as he unveils a brand new three track selection. We begin with the tribal bass flavours and downright dirty sounds of 'Firestone' before rolling into the subtle funky grooves and growling subs of the title track 'Magnetic'. From here, we take a more satanic turn as the demonic bass sounds and sharp percussive pings of 'Complexity' take a lead role, followed closely by the skippy 4x4 flavours and shimmering tones of 'Doo'. Finally, we finish up in style with more laid back creation of 'No Effs', which applies slowly professing bass synths and percussive layering to create a really tight sense of atmosphere.

Review: Sunday Roast is back on the menu, and this time he's serving up five courses of pure UK Bass nastiness (in a good way). Highlights this time round include the primal thump of "Don't You", the sinister, white noise fizz-attack, "Horse Power" and the speedy dark shuffler "Radiowho". A real return to form.

Fabrique - (8:15) 124 BPM
Charmer - (8:03) 125 BPM
Long Time - (8:24) 126 BPM
Review: Following two years away, Soulserious founder Louie John returned to action in the summer with an EP that demonstrated his growing maturity as a producer. The "I Owe You EP" is similarly impressive with John unleashing four more cuts of the highest quality. Our pick of a very strong bunch is the title track, where the Reading producer cannily combines the bluesy, horizontal deep house warmth of "Boulevard"-era St Germain with the rhythm swing, sub-bass weight and cut-up vocal samples of UK garage. He explores similar sonic territory on the more musically expansive and dreamy "Fabrique", before doffing a peaked cap towards the bouncy, ear-pleasing goodness of Ibadan man Jerome Sydenham on closing cuts "Charmer" and "Long Time" (the latter of which is particularly breezy and melodious).

Review: Although the releases don't come as fast as they have done in the past, Reading's Sunday Roast always impresses when he does conjure up something new. Here on the Illusive EP he continues to explore his darker side - "Amazon" in particular adding some moody bass growls to a rolling UKF backdrop. Elsewhere the title track keeps the air of menace, with a tense, percussive undertone, "Lime" is a deeper techy affair, we get the ghetto/juke/dub hybrid "Whores In This House" and the melodic diva-garage of closer "Bulldog" wraps this package up nicely.

Review: Louie John is a man caught in a torrid love triangle between New York and Reading. The former is where his heart is, preferable at the Limelight in the mid-'90s, the latter is where his home is, where his label Soulserious is based. Deep and soulful house is the general order of the day here, but particular standouts include the stab laden proggy diva anthem "Just A Game", The Gypsy Woman indebted organ house roller "Nothing You Say" and the 808-led grooves of "I Owe You". A more mature return from one classy producer.

Buss - (8:07) 128 BPM
Energie - (7:03) 128 BPM
Review: Soulserious mainstay Dub Solution cooks up five more of his unique garage/house hybrids: "Flava" looks back to the classics thanks to its detuned synths, bubbling 808 bassline and wailing vocal, "Full Moon" sounds like a Dirtybird cut thanks to its lean make-up, weirded out tech rhythm and sinewy sub wriggles while "Distractions" continues the snub-nosed tech theme but does so with an array of alien space noises and textures. Dig deeper for a funkier jam on the shuffling groove and scuffing throaty bass on "Buss" and an all-out physical floor assault on the future acid house adventure that is "Energie". Welcome to flavour country.
