48K Soundboy - (5:59) 173 BPM
   
Multiverse - (4:52) 175 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Unofficially the baddest hombre of the KOTR cartel, Bladerunner steps over to his mate Serum's souper imprint for two understated stinker sessions. "48K Soundboy" huffs and heaves with a nicely distorted bassline that's almost guitar-like in its natural strokes and drums that have a live rattled feel (and some ace pitching on the fills) Multiverse, meanwhile, takes us back with a BC style sci-fi aesthetics and a Charge-style stab in the main riff. Impeccable, as always.

Review: Badman Bou is in the house! Making his debut on Serum's impeccable label Souped Up label, it's nothing but four tracks of absolute sonic lava. "Mankind" is all drone and no moan as a metallic bass textures scrapes itself over some slinked-out rolling breaks, "Higher" sees him teaming up with Current Value (who he actually inspired to write a whole album without realising) for a technoid pumper with venomous springy stabs, "It's A Trap" is all about the rubber ball bass shots and flagrant cheekiness before "No Love" bids us adieu with another powerful tunnelling metallic bass drone. Lovely stuff.

Review: There's no stopping Manchester's Bou right now. If he's not slapping us silly on the likes of Critical, or whipping us with one-offs on Hospital he's, drenching us in thick gloopy gully on Serum and Benny V's Souped Up. Following the heat of his "Habibi" EP last year, "Scorpion" comes with the sting its name suggests. It's backed up by the devilishly cheeky Trigga-fronted "Veteran" before he links up with Serum for "Superstar", a warm bouncy riffy cut that's crying for an Inja-style MC topline. Finally we hit "Spook". Recently spotted in the sets of both Noisia and Skrillex, need we say more? All say 'woo' for Bou

Pressure - (4:28) 175 BPM
Review: Man of the moment Bou is joined by Sub Killaz on Souped Up for a riotous single that lands squarely on the pulse of today's D&B landscape. Head nodding drums and glitched out samples bring you in for the title track 'Starbust' before the trademark Souped Up style punches you on the nose with a fluctuating bounce of bass stabs. "Pressure' adds some more powerful drums in what is jump-up revamped, its stabbing, pointed knuckles lumped into each other for a groovy run of low-frequency style that'll be instantly recognizable for fans of Serum. This release rides the genre's wave of popularity with an effortless style deserving of some of Manchester's hottest talents.

Review: Put some money in their hands! Bou and Trigga's already massive 'Veteran' gets the VIP treatment and it's finally ready for us mere mortals. Classic Bou roughhouse bassline funk, signature story telling from a true Manchester OG, delivered on one of the most on-point labels in the game right now; there's a reason 'Veteran' hit the spot so succinctly in the first place. This VIP makes sure the spot remains hit for a long time to come. Start with your lyrics, sing for your song.

Review: Oh gosh! Current Value hits us hard with his 11th studio album 'Puer'. Released on Serum's Souped Up, it's a no-holds-barred exploration of the jumpier side to his far-reaching range. Big basslines, wily funk, zero-effs-given rave music, it's the German producer at his most playful. Highlights such as the sizzling harmonics of "Contemplate", the deep drones and savage kicks of "Chariot", the rising grainy riff and KO fills of "Pitting" and the reunion with man-of-the-moment Bou on "Running Your Mouth" are just some of the tracks that will melt your skin right down to your bones. And if that's not enough, he's about to drop album 12 on Methlab too. No one's doing it like Current Value.

Review: Current Value on Serum's Souped Up... Even as recently as a year ago this would have seemed like an odd partnership but right now it feels just right. CV brings dynamics and textures like few others can but much more importantly he understands the funk and groove and when to hold back, too. As a result each of these four tracks is an absolute keeper; "City Syndrome" sparkles with strange spatial textures before flipping into a guttural grainy riff, "Of Truth" hits with a classic old school emotional synth intro before flipping into a growling metallic bassline. "Relinquish" takes us to much darker pastures with a grizzly rolling bassline with "Sluv" ends with foundation tones so rich and evocative but an energy and aesthetic so futuristic and crisp, it's like being in a rave in 1990 but dancing in trainers made in 2090.

Remorse - (4:23) 177 BPM
Review: Current Value's relationship with the Souped Up crew has become one of the best subgenre cross overs in recent times, with his glitchy Neurofunk sound transitioning perfectly over into Serum's drawn-out, jump-up infused tones. 'Remorse' features Coppa on vocals and it's a naughty, rolling number with a tight sub bass and a general atmosphere of aggressive hedonism and dancefloor orientated funk. Good stuff.

Review: Pass the pizza ar kid, Marky's heading up north and he's after something spicy! Teaming up with Dutta for the first of a two part release, this is a seriously tasty dream team where both artists characters' can be heard very clearly and vividly in the mix. "Mochi" flips between sandpaper bass licks and soft funk stabs while "Waffles" flips between a grumpy Bristol style bass and perky piano rolls that gradually get creepier and creepier. Feeling peckish? This will feed your family for three weeks and still have plenty left over.

Birds Flying High - (5:26) 174 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Bedmo band leader Dr Meaker strips right down to his bare bassline essentials and jumps in a deep hot bath of pure Brizzle grit. The results are both high flying and full of natural grace; "The Falcon" glides through the thermals by way of a grunty riff before swooping for its prey by way of big disco samples. "Birds Flying High" maintains the airborne action thanks to a ridiculously playful riff and more precision sample magic. It's a new dawn, it's a new banger...

The Rooster - (4:04) 175 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Dr Meaker is without a doubt one of the most unique artists in the scene. Known for their live-band approach to D&B that utilises a litany of different vocalists and instrumentation, their two albums are some of the most beloved. But recently Dr Meaker has gone in a more dancefloor-friendly direction and has been repping the Souped Up take, with plenty of big basslines and rolling hooks. That's what this single is and it's definitely a heavy, well-made piece of work. We hope it's not the end of the older sound, but regardless we're loving this newfound grittiness.

Pepperoni Passion (feat Inja) - (4:25) 175 BPM
Review: Dutta is a young Mancunian on a serious mission - a mission to make big tunes. One of the emerging wave of talent that Serum is fostering with his Souped Up imprint, his raucous approach to the Souped Up sound has already begun to give him a bit of a name of himself. This EP looks set to confirm that as it's a slick five-tracker. The title tune sits above a bed of solid percussive force, and there's a nice juxtaposition between funky stabs and a dark, satisfying bassline that moves and sways with serious precision. 'Hot Box' has a similar back end and is another highlight from the release, but perhaps not as much as 'Pepperoni Passion' featuring Inja, which also combines smooth jazz samples with a dirty bottom end. Big stuff from the young upstart.

Review: Manchester's Dom Utley, better known as Dutta to his peers, is up next on Serum's Souped Up with a new bunch of personal dubs that follow up great releases on Faceless Audio, Dubz Audio and Liondub International. Featuring the fierce tech-stepper that is "Dominos", he then goes deeper into the morning hours on the moody "One Round" (feat T>I) reminiscent of classic DJ Krust and "Cookie Monster" - a true roller with relentless junglist style breaks throughout. Follows up some great releases on the label by Bou, Bladerunner and Current Value.

"Tiger Claw" is pure drum riot funk, "Reload" (with Jakes) is insanely smooth, "Wash Away" (with Serum) packs all the raffish thrills and spills of an early Hazard joint, "Woah" is a deep sci-fi roll-out that takes off where "Trooper" left us the other month while "OG" closes on venomous growl flex. Wowzers... These will singe your trousers.

Review: Oh gosh. Fresh from his recent Critical endeavours, Levela makes his debut on Serum and Benny V's souper sharp shooting Souped Up with "R.A.W". A track so devilish in its intent and intensity - thanks to a sheet metal-slamming, insistent spoken vocal and layers of percussion - it more than lives up to its name. It's back by three more raffish fire blends; "Drunk" features the unstoppable Current Value and swaggers with deliciously loose drums and a punky bassline, "Meat Grinder" grizzles uncontrollably under a thunderstorm of distortion and harmonics while "Full Clip" closes this meaty message with a schizoid bassline that rattles and shakes with dangerous degrees of heaviness. Rare, raw, ready to feed festivals all summer; Levela is levelling up in a major way this year.

Review: MCs don't come much more legendary than Birmingham's Bassman, labels don't come much more on point than Souped Up: Everything about this release stacks up in our favour. And that's before we get to the fact the remixes of Bassman's 2009 classic are none other than Serum and Bou & Simula. First up we find the label boss diving deep with his signature sheet metal groans while men-of-the-moment Bou & Simula get jiggy with more of a trippy, haunted rippled effect. Remixes don't come much more hench than this.

Review: Bassman a talking, no propaganda! The man with the most famous finger in dance music returns to Souped Up with more murderous words of wisdom in the form of "Power To Kill". Two versions, two absolute jams: Serum and Voltage take the lead with a classic addictive riff that bumps and wriggles and a cheeky key twist on the second drop. Manny mandem of the moment Dutta follows with a grittier flex to the bassline. Full on turbine business, it's a one-inch-punch of a bassline with full distortion and maximum overdrive in the energy stakes. Killing it in all directions, both mixes provide the perfect space for Bassman's distinctive martial law.

MC Bassman & Ego Trippin - "You're Coming With Us" - (4:26) 175 BPM
Review: When Bassman and Serum invite you to 'The Terrordome' you don't RSVP on nice frilly paper, you don't say 'yeah defo mate' but actually think 'I'll see what else is going on before I decide', you don't ask 'who else is coming?', you don't have to get your mum's permission. You just go there and you soak up whatever hell and tarnation the two monsters are cooking for you. It might make you screw up your face, it might make you shout a rude word or two, it might make you lose your trousers but that's life in the Terrordome and you are most definitely invited. Comes complete with the equally savage tear-up 'You're Coming With Us' with Ego Trippin where Bassman reveals what theologians and philosophers have wondered for centuries... What happens when we die?

Enjoy a nice "Brandy & Coke" while the bassline sounds like a pack of stray dogs trying to eat your shoes. Next we hit the pub where we meet some very "Bad People" and shoo them away with eerie high frequency riffage and groaning bass textures. "The Mask" sees us hitting the club... Literally. The sound of the bass clanging like we're banging the walls because the music is goshdarned good. Finally we hit the sesh where things get twisted to the tune of "Demons Dreaming". You think you know big nights out? You've never raved with Mozey.

Need For Mirrors has always had an incredibly unique sound and on Peng it collides with the tones of Souped Up, Serum's influence gets refracted through Need For Mirrors' production style and the result is fantastic. The roller mix of 'Peng A Leng' just does absolute bits, with a rambunctiously solid percussive underpinning that forces you to take notice early on, leading you into a huge bassy, brass stab line that'll blow your socks clean off. NFM has smashed this one, yet again.

Moody pitched down bars, murked riddim, classic gutter grooves from Mr Lambo as always.

Finally "Pulse-S" represents Serum's more leftfield sense of funk with a tin-of-bees bass buzz that wobbles raffishly off the kicks. Yet another soup filled with at least three of your five a day, once again Serum smashes it in his own unique way.

Funk, humour, darkness and brute force are all at play here as we're treated to three more floor-burning classic Serum buzzes: "Hunchback" takes us back to Bingo's golden age with a riff so bouncy you'll be putting stabilisers back on your bike, "Nomads" is a little darker in its texture but just as funkily persuasive while "Road Dog" takes the Bristol sound, adds a hundred barking Staffies and lets them off the lead and right in to your face and ears. Tremendous stuff that's both classic, timeless and one of a kind. Salute to Serum!

Often topped with a killer flow from Inja, here it is in all its hooky, ever-mutating glory. It's backed with an equally riffy wriggler "Square Root". Bleepy and weird but a hell of a lot of fun, it's like spending a night camped out in a transistor radio with some high quality rum. Serum's a lumberjack... And we're okay!

Review: The Souped Up crew are back in town and they have an offering, courtesy of Original Sin. It's a fiery, no-nonsense release that sits in the familiar vein of Souped Up influenced music, with an emphasis on the pummelling and the urban-edged knack that only jump-up D&B has. Remixing Serum himself, 'Earth Rot' has a punching, pitched-down back end that pulses and sways alongside its percussive cousin and to great effect - this one would go down well on any UK dancefloor. There's a genuine feel of aggressiveness here that only prooducers with the old-school credentials of Original Sin know how to cultivate, and it sits very nicely on the Souped Up release roster.

Let's Go (Dub mix) - (4:56) 175 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: The artwork for this release is typically Souped Up with its upbeat, cartoonish style and bright, saturated colours. The music is an equally pleasant assault on the senses and assault is the right word because, with Harry Shotta in tow, Serum & Benny V are launching an attack through sound. 'Let's Go' is quintessential Serum & Benny and the punchy, stabbing arrangement is complimented ideally by Shotta, who's renowned flow floats across the top end of the range to provide extra ammunition for the battle below. Proper Souped Up bit of sickness.

Review: If Serum's new label Souped Up was an actual soup what flavour would it be? A minestrone perhaps? Full of chewy textures and a wholesomeness that instantly hits the heart. How about a mulligatawny, all hot and rich? Or maybe a classic oxtail? Intense and beefy. Whatever flavour you can compare it to, like all soups, it does what it says on the tin and it's best served piping hot. Here are two more cases in point Serum and fellow roller king Voltage; the rocket-launching Charge-like chiselled riff on "Mission Control" and the slinky jungle stepper which nods at Full Cycle sound with its mild wafts of jazziness, loose drums and continuous bass mutations. Chewy, wholesome, hot, rich, intense and beefy: Souped Up is every drum & bass flavour right now... Get it inside you!

Gunfingers - (4:54) 176 BPM Biggest-selling track on this release
Review: Men of the moment Serum & Voltage press the red button on Serum's nuclear new label: Souped Up. The results are as bright, bashy and bad-ass as you'd hope them to be: "8-Bit" hits with a nasty rasping riff that grizzles on the top-end and sizzles on the bottom while "Gunfingers" shoots and whips with an anthemic bass melody that's so strong you feel you've known all your life. Already massive in the dance with those lucky enough to have it dub, this is the way all new labels should launch.

Review: The biggest moves in Newcastle and the north east of the UK since Gazza cried in some football match (and the world cried with him) are happening right now. A storming wealth of D&B talent is all blazing through right now and Stompz is right up there at the front. This debut on Serum and Benny V's Souped Up is a great example of his dexterity and utter gulliness. Five tracks of twisted, bassy weirdness and dark toxic funk, highlights include the insane melted bass weirdness of "Derringer" and the farty trippiness and sudden BCUK-style fills of "Borehole" but to be honest the entire EP is killer. Do the world a favour and slap anyone who says foghorns are dead, then play them this. Big up Stompz.

Review: Tina Turner had steamy windows. Jilly Cooper writes steamy novels. T>I makes 'Steamy Rollers'... And he wants you to get all hot and sweaty by them, too. Coming at us courtesy of the steamy soundboys at Souped Up, each cut hits so hard you'll lose your undergarments within seconds... Those early Die style slinky bass hums on 'Jungle', those sultry guitar twangs and horrendously murky bassline on 'Paper Clipz', the twisted funk and slow burning build of 'Front End' and the riotous finale 'Steptrolasis'... All designed to get you so hot under the collar you'll disown clothing for the rest of your life. Body heat crew - this one you!

Review: T>I on Souped Up... It was only a matter of time before this alignment of gully stars occurred, and of course it's 100 percent stankage. "Dye Migration" is a juggernaut driving up behind you with full beams and 1000 horns blaring up your keister before he launches into a couplet of caustic collabs; "Swington" with Serum is a low riding, knuckle scuffing groaner while "Blue Lagoon", with Current Value, takes us down lovers lane for a breezy roll out that's loaded with equal levels of grit and emotion. Finally "Bullnose" sees T>I wrapping up the EP solo with nothing but a bucket load of pure filth and bleeps. Absolute gold... But would you expect anything less of the Drum&BassArena Award winning label?

Review: A bunch of furry murderous Russians on Serum's Souped Up... What can possibly go wrong? Total carnage from the off, "Bun Dem" is serious sandpaper funk. Gritty, growling and unrelenting; it's not just rough around the edges, it's rough right down to the core. And it's back up with three more audio nasties... "Excited" is a staccato riff damager that nods to the mid 2000s jump-up where everything was maximal. "Beggar" follows suit but comes with a more sinister edge; like it's asking you for change but is actually ripping off your whole identity. Finally we hit "Knock Knock", a track rife in organic drums and scary bassline textures, it sets everything up for the all important punchline... You have no choice but to deliver.

Review: The bumchin badboy is back, and he's packing a platter of greasy riff pies. But be lively, these are so fresh they're jumping off the plate! "High Frequency" is all about the ping pong ball bassline that ricochets around the mix like a hyper puppy who's been given grown up Pedigree Chum while "Entity" adds instant contrast with grumpy bass guffs and a beat the rolls with absolute perfection and works in pretty much every single mix we've tried. Deeper into the EP we find Souped Up's head chef Serum getting in the mix for two collaborations; "Circuits" is a proper grumpy one with just a smidgeon of BC peppering the mix while "Pitch Forks" gathers the rabble and comes charging out of the gate towards whoever's made the most recent public upset. And by the sounds of that flabby bassline and those graveyard pads they're not stopping until blood is split. Rabble rabble!

Voltage & MC Bassman - "Spare You" - (4:29) 175 BPM
Review: Do as he says, not as he does... Number one father for justice Voltage lays down the ground rules with this stinking slab of parental heaviness. You thought lockdown was bad? Just wait until you see what happens under your new poppa's regime: The groaning bassline on "Space Station" will ground you for a week, the pace, tension and growls of "Gyal Chat" will stop your pocket money for three months and the gruffness and ruffness of "Cold Air" will send you to bed with no tea every night for a fortnight. It's not all punishment and gunishment, though; "Spare You" (with MC Bassman) shows Voltage's kinder, softer fatherly side and he lets you drink cider and stay up till 3am watching horror films. Way to go dad-dad-daddio.
