Review: Liondub International have a bit of a reputation for spewing out some of the most venomous beats in the business and their talent for pushing some of the best unknown artists on the jump-up spectrum is undeniable. Dungeon Kru are holding up that standard and they're doing it in style, something clear right from the start of this EP. 'Pushing'' reels you in with heavy, pounding introduction and its inch-perfect drums are ideally suited for the twisting, gargling bassline that pops up around the corner. The other five tracks are all equally as pernicious and they make this one an EP to watch for sure

Review: One of the regular labels we feature are Sub-Liminal, a wicked little imprint that puts out a diverse sound ranging from techy rollers to jump-up steppers and even liquidy numbers. This week they've arrived with an EP from Dunk, who, across six tracks, spans various tones and styles, all of them rooted in a sense of dancefloor aggressiveness and all of them top-notch. 'Bingo' is a highlight, its rolling percussive line isn't the paciest but is loping and satisfying, whilst a stabby bass and sweeping reeces sit just above and inject all the force. 'Silence'' is also a wicked track, with a lovely, stripped back drum line that's full of moody sonics. Top stuff.

Review: Low Down Deep has become one of the premier destinations for UK jump-up, playing host to every big name in the scene over the years. Now a proper flag-holder for the resurgent jump-up movement, Low Down Deep are back and they're repping Slipz, one of the big up and comers right now. He's coming out with the Boss EP and the title track is playful yet devastating, with an upbeat and funky arrangement that lands hard - very hard. 'Infinite' is less subtle, with pitched up synths that pummel the top end of the range and a snapping drum line that nails the bottom end. Yes guys.

Review: Everyone likes a good compilation, right? What's better than having as big a range of artists as possible in one condensed place? It's essentially an album with the ease of listening of a single, so we're all for it. Zombie Recordings UK have come out with the third edition in their Within The Woods series and it's packed full of jump-up bangers, one of those albums which doesn't try to be cool or sophisticated by chucking in a few fillers for the sake of diversity - it's just hard stuff here. It works great, with features from Shadre & Salvage, Nick The Lot, Damage Report and more all getting together for a shakedown. Nick The Lot kills it as per usual and his subby, stabby number is more down to earth and stratospheric. Wicked.

Review: This release honestly doesn't mess around. It carries a serious sense of potency despite its clear lack of sophistication, because D&B of this type simply isn't about sophistication, it's about making something so filthy the audience won't even understand what hit them. Maze
has certainly accomplished that here, I mean just have a listen to the rippling sines, percussive naughtiness and bassline badassery that is 'Rumble', a beautifully spacious tune that still manages to make you feel like you've been attacked by a dog. This is a crazy release from start to finish.

Review: Maze is building up a name for himself as someone who never fails to bring out the big guns with his music. It's always heavy, hard-hitting and built on soundscapes and vibes which are deeply urban. His Embrace EP on Bulletproof is no different and it kicks off with 'Charlie', a stabby roller with a bassline that stretches out over the horizon, the only constant being its grinding, coarse nature and the manner in which it constantly mutates and evolves. 'Soldier' is equally as rough but less rolling and more jungley, its structure and nature constantly changes and it keeps the tune sounding consistently fresh. This whole EP is absolute vibes.

Review: Gradually honing his sound over the last few years on the likes of Spectre and Shiftin' Beatz, Enta is now a firm member of Fatman D's labels. First Young Guns, now this full EP debut on Biological Beats. Undoubtedly his most focused and accomplished release to date, the EP is held down by a stripped back heavily pressurised sense of tension... Pastry's moody bars on "Formula", the slick slippery drum work on "Revenge", the trippy harmonics on "Sleight Of Hand" and carefully tamed bass grunts of "Lurking". Trust us, there's nothing formulaic about this one.

Review: OG soldiers Benny V and K-Warren on Deekline and Ed Solo's Jungle Cakes? Oh our collective gosh! Premium party business wrapped around a very well-known sample source, there's a twist in the "Apache Scat" tale... While it's usually the apache break that everyone utilises in their tracks, this one uses the full horn-blazing, guitar-twanging hook and couples it with some beautiful rapid-fire lyrical lava from Deemas J. Loaded with a heavier, driving remix from bossman Deekline, this one reaches out to the full crew and beyond.

Review: Tomoyoshi is definitely one of the best producers out there and,with previous releases on a host of other labels, his aggressive sound is back with a vengeance here, as well as being cut through with some lighter bits. Packed with harsh, barking tones and a stripped-back, funky aesthetic, Tomoyoshi doesn't waste any time in laying out the rules: there are none. 'Smooth Groove' is the title tune and its aptly named, with a luscious set of pads and a real feeling of relaxation that's nonetheless underpinned by a powerful percussive set and stonking low end. Wicked.

Review: Songwriter, singer, MC, producer, absolute G: since landing on Hospital exactly two years ago in 2018 Degs has consistently peppered us with vibes by way of beautiful releases and powerfully energetic and inspiring shows. Now he levels up with his debut solo album Letters From Ndegwa, a widescreen bounty of musical D&B featuring collaborations with the likes of LSB, Phil:osophy, Unglued, Logistics, Pola & Bryson, S.P.Y and many more. Ranging from the touching almost-beatless ballads such as "4 Days" to the outrageous gully energy of tracks like "The Roots" via raw funkular missions like "Levitate Your Mind", this album doesn't just wrap up why Degs is one of the most exciting artists to join Hospital but a shining example of just how versatile and musical D&B artists can truly be. What an album.

Review: Bryan Gee and V Recordings do not mess around.

And it's been well worth the wait. From L-Sides massive remixes of Dillinja and Krust to Need For Mirrors super-revved "Lambo" to Benny L's incredible remix of "Days", this sums up why Bryan and his label are as influential and respected in the game as they are today. Don't mess around.

It's a fiery, no-nonsense release that sits in the familiar vein of Souped Up influenced music, with catchy hooks and the urban-edged knack that only jump-up D&B has. 'Looney Toonz' is our favourite, with 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. The rest of the release is equally slick - Eternal Muzic have killed it once more.

Adzzy & Kaitlin Bissett - "Rush" - (4:27) 174 BPM
Review: Our favourite Welsh label is back with its next outing, this time a distinctly sleek single from the veteran that is Adzzy, who is blending belligerent and beautiful beats in a brash but belated way here. The first side, with Cardiff based MC P.A.B is a big, dancefloor piece of work with a menacing vocal line and low frequency construction to match, the synergy between the two is tangible and the results are wicked. The flip is our favourite, an absurdly deep number featuring Kaitlin Bissett on vocals and a luxuriously wallowing wall of sub bass which envelops the whole tune with forward movement and fluidity. Awesome stuff.

Review: Liondub's Street Series is one of the longest running and best introductory series' in the business, pulling through some lesser known talent on an almost monthly basis with condense yet expansive collections of music. This time it's the turn of Higher Sector, who lays down the gauntlet from the outset with 'Kill A Rat' - a huge jungle number with towering high points that tumble down into jarringly cool low points. It's a bit of a ballad to be honest. 'Forces' feat. Sam Harris is the other highlight, a pummelling roller with a wobbling sub and deliciously satisfying percussive snaps. Lovely stuff.

Review: Atlantic Connection has been releasing liquid drum & bass for a very long time and has built up a concurrently extensive reputation for excellence. This is his first EP for a little while and its coming on Liquid Lab, and instead of the usually sample focused sound it's a tad deeper, a just that bit more on the electronic side of things. That's expressed in the title tune 'Hey Jenny Hey', which drops off into a bouncing array of low frequency energy in lovely style. We're also fans of the slightly heavier touches of 'Gravity' and the rolling funk of 'Something In My Soul'. Banging.

'Super' is one of the stronger tracks, an expansive, growing number that starts in small pieces and gradually puts itself together, each synth sounds wicked and the combination of all of them is next level. 'Clowned' is very creative and has a unique rhythmic structure that some won't like but that others will love and regardless, it's a top-level cut to round out the release. Yes mate!

This is the second instalment in their New Addictions series and it's a percy, with contributions from J Select, Kamoh, Erbman , Burnzy and Joely and T Zone. J Select comes out the blocks straight away with 'Glitch', a giant, cavernous stepper with oodles of space in the arrangement for its multitude of coarse basses to blow you away. Erbman has the other highlight, with a growling, wobbling underground of sounds below its skipping drum line. Big stuff.

This newest streak of funk, disco and boogie bangers sees strings and soul vibrations layered over the top slap of a Daft Punk inspired bassline (in "All You Wanna Do Is Party") to the piano led disco romances of "Come On Over To My Place". Even housier still is "Now That I Have Found You" and don't be afraid of the '70s leisure suite that is "Times". Still Chuggin'.

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...

They've all made a load of massive tracks and the three of them have collaborated on two remixes that make for a wicked EP. Jayline is on remix duties with 'ESP' and it's made us wonder how he packs so much sheer energy into his synth lines and the clarity he composes throughout the range is properly sick. Shadre & Salvage jump on 'Valhalla' with ease, getting straight to it with a quickfire intro that descends into a hellishly aggressive mash of bass synths of varying persuasions. Sick release this.

Review: Cre8 DnB Music are regular appearances here for two main reasons. Firstly, they release a hell of a lot of music. Secondly, it almost always hits hard and in good order. So, with that in mind, let's take a look at Magenta's collaboration ep, the next instalment in a Cre8 DnB special of huge sounds. '10G' featuring Forest Animal is without a doubt the highlight of the EP, with an infectiously funky arrangement that's grounded in a glitchy sense of progression and movement. It goes hard, but in a way that's not off-putting or over the top. That's the general impression of this EP: jump-up, but not trashy jump-up. Just the way we like it.

Review: Replicant is absolutely on it with this release. Courtesy of Octave Recordings, he's stepped up for a powerful bit of work across two tracks 'Mind Games' is the standout tune, a wobbly collection of sines and subs which taken together form an arrangement that's equal parts heavy and equal parts funky, a tried and tested combination that always goes down well in the club. The flip is just as wicked, and it's the sheer attitude, the no nonsense vibe that this single has, which has made us as gassed about it as we are.

Review: Cave is another one of very prolific, very consistent jump up labels who are riding high the wave of fervour spreading through that side of the scene at the moment. For this week's instalment of their mission to madness, they've got Yoteii on board for this riotous four-tracker. 'Megatron' leads you in with hypnotic instrumentation, before laying them out over a subby, rolling drum break, complete with some naughty stabs. 'The Buzz' takes things up a notch in terms of craziness, its squelching, grating bass notes hit all the spots and we're very, very into it. Top EP.

Review: Total Recall is a producer we've featured quite a lot on this site before and it's because he has an impressive talent for producing gargling, powerful beats that hit hard and don't look back when they step over your stunned body. It makes sense that he's on Bagged & Tagged, then, as his Summons EP shows off the capabilities of both him and the label. The title track is the standout, a chopped-up amalgamation of energy and purpose, custom-built for the club and very much in tune with the strength of the scene at the moment. The rest of the release slaps as well - check it out.

Review: Everyone likes a good compilation, right? What's better than having as big a range of artists as possible in one condensed place? It's essentially an album with the ease of listening of a single, so we're all for it. Subliminal have come out with the 2020 edition in their Riddim Return series and it's packed full of bangers, across a range of styles, and it's one of those albums which doesn't try to be cool or sophisticated by chucking in a few fillers for the sake of diversity - it's just hard stuff here. It works great, with Sam Harris' tendency for muscular minimosity coming on loud and clear on Boom Ting, a wickedly devilish and driving roller.

Review: Vital by name, Vital by nature... "Criminal Minds" sees the young UK producer return to the NYC imprint with the start of an exciting new series. Delving deep into a fat sack of gully, each of these cuts rep Vital at his darkest and most uncompromising. "Criminal Minds" takes the lead with a classic vocal sample and a Serum-style naggy bass riff, "Acid Rocker" goes full-on foghorn fire with its big farty turbine bass roars, "Patterns" adds a little late 90s tech danger in the synths before dropping into an absolute sewer bassline while "Recognise" closes the EP with a little trad jump-up craftmanship. Riffy, addictive and laced with just a touch of soul on the vocal. Killer material; being a criminal has never been so much fun.

Review: US-born, Netherlands-based soulful D&B nomad Greg Submorphics takes away to sunnier, more wholesome climes on this immaculate debut album. Gilded synths, hazy feels, stacks of woozy warmth, just the right balance of nostalgia; every cut ripples and flexes with a timeless liquid feel. The dusty horns on "Memories Of You", the velvet boogie, silky synths and syrupy dulcets of Big Brooklyn Red on "Daydreaming", the dreamy bounce of "Faded Images", the list goes on. As you'd expect from The North Quarter and Submorphics, everything about this album hits the spot. Close your eyes and think of better times...

Review: Quite possibly the most consistent artist Playaz have ever known, Taxman is always there for you when you need him. After his monthly assault of tunes last year he returns with yet more fresh goods in the form of "Can't You See". Breezier and lighter than his usual sledgehammer signature, the sensual vocal, dreamy chords and subtle rave elements roll-up together with total uplift... And allow just enough space for a stinky bassline to cut through in all the right places. One for the dancefloor dreamers.

Review: The latest in the 'Katakana Edits' series comes once more from label regular DJ Laurel, who delivers six soul/funk/disco cuts that, as a rule, seek simply to update the source material for contemporary floors rather than rework anything too radically. That source material this time out includes Herbie Mann's 'Hijack' from 1974, Millie Jackson's 'Never Change Lovers In The Middle Of The Night' from 1979 and Arthur Prysock's 'When Love Is New' from 1976 on a straight disco tip, as well as the lounge-y, Latin vibes of Carmen Costa's 'Bateu, Doeu' from 1973 - the other two have us beat, but all six cuts are very playable.

Review: Jeopardize is without a doubt one of the most talented producers to have emerged out of the jump-up space in the past several years. His sound is rough and tumble but still dark and techy, he draws upon multiple influences and, as such, has a cross-subgenre appeal. This EP on Low Down Deep expresses this fact perfectly. "Amnesia' has the snarling stabs of jump up with the blackish fa?ade of something darker, it's still rooted in urbanity thanks but also packs a futuristic punch. 'Commander' is typically choppish, pointed synths abound and each hit and knock feel purposely placed. Top piece of work and the other two are just as good.

Review: Euphonique has absolutely smashed this one. She's here with this four-track release packing all the creativity and attitude that we've come to expect. The first tune is vintage Euphonique, with an urban vocal and a stuttering array of jungle breaks that piece together into a really creative bit of music. The others are all pure rollers, with that Souped Up or KoTR vibe, and our favorite is probably 'Baddest Gal', just because that bassline is far too gully for us not to be into it. Big ups.

Full pads, full euphoria and a nasty little slinky drop. Feel the pressure!

"Angry Waves" sets the pace. Pneumatic drums, clipped vocals and the groaniest bass you'll hear this side of quarantine, anger never sounded so good. Elsewhere "ABR" whips up graveyard feels, "Ping Pong" plays pocket billiards with your brain while "Chair Dub" brings home the bacon on a moody 140 tip. What a label debut. Keep Cesco on your radar.

Next up from them, they join forces with the wonderful Deadly Habitz, who supplies us with five potent UKG heaters. First up, 'Are You Dumb', sampling a classic Jammz vocal with smooth percussive slices, alongside the sweeping bass LFO's of 'Falling 4 U' and nostalgic chord expressions of 'So High'. Following that, 'Stay True' deploys some incredible vocal stutters and hard hitting horn stabs, before we round up on the sweeping subs and electronic vocal lines of 'Your Love'. Awesome work.

Highlights include the playfully titled "Squirt" (watch out for that sudden gnarly switch on the bass midway), the fluctuating subs and bold percussion splashes on "Temperance" and that restrained high voltage electric menace on "Shame". More of this please Sustance and Overview.

Review: Down 2 Earth Muzik is Macky Gee's imprint, his way of putting out more of the music he personally enjoys and wishes there was more of, a stamp he can plonk down on the scene and call his own. This next release is from Gino and it seems like he's heard the criticism that jump up is too samey, and so gone out and tried to refine and change the sound. He's definitely succeeded, whether you're into it is up to you, but there's a certain creativity in how the synths and basses are constructed and how they relate to each other. We love it and can't wait to hear more. The title track is especially good, with a super unique beat pattern and tough and tumble vibes popping off all over the shop.

Review: We can think of few DJs more suited to compile a retrospective of killer 1990s house and garage than Z Records boss Joey Negro and Fanatix member Neil Pierce. It's perhaps unsurprising then that this follow-up to Negro's admired 2015 compilation is packed to the rafters with must-have treats. There are naturally some suitably big cuts present - see Kerri Chandler's fine mix of N-Joi's "Anthem" and Todd Terry's rub of Martha Walsh's "Runaround" - but for the most part the selections will be new to all but a small collection of veteran US garage enthusiasts. Our highlights include the riff-powered goodness of Slam Mode's "100% Power", Marshall Jefferson's deep dub of Screamin' Rachael's "Rock Me" and the soulful rush of Donald O's "Everything's Gonna Be Alright".

Review: Following the likes of Ray Keith, Nicky Blackmarket, General Levy and many artists of high don calibre, Dope Ammo and DJ Hybrid are the next to take the controls as Jungle Cakes' Welcome To The Jungle series. As always, the selection digs deep across the board to include classics, absolute bangers that have been criminally forgotten and no less than 10 exclusives made strictly for this album. From the sun-kissed soul and key-tickling evangelist jam "Salvation" to the absolute rave carnage of "What's Going Down", the boys have gone in on this collection maintaining its still spotless reputation as one of the most consistent and prolific mix series available in the genre. Pay close attention to the Jukebox Jungle track, too. This needs your loving.

Epicentre is on things for them this time around with a six-tracker of frightening proportions, packed full of solid percussive strikes and gravelling basslines. 'Come With It' has a seriously funky rhythmic pattern and a slick array of basslines, whilst 'Dread' takes things in a funkier direction with ragga sampling and a fluid concoction of reese bass magic. Top.

Danger - "The Sleeper" - (5:20) 174 BPM
Review: Danger and Magenta are definitely tw of the more rated producers out there, with previous releases on Sun-liminal as well as a host of other labels, their aggressive sound is back with a vengeance here. Packed with harsh, barking tones and a stripped-back, industrial aesthetic, this one doesn't waste any time in laying out the rules: there are none. 'Religion' is one of the heavier cuts, with a punching back end and an obstinate feel of solidness that reflects down all the way onto the rest of the tune. 'The Sleeper' is the flip tune and you can see why, with a KoTR-esque approach to drawn out basslines and tough sonics.

Review: Prestige can really make music and his latest piece of work is out over on Calypso Muzak. A Gift is an energetic piece of jump-up construction that doesn't hesitate to punch you in the face and its exemplified by the title track, a bass-filled expression of dancefloor hatred which moves in mysterious yet obvious ways. It bangs, basically, as does the rest of the EP, with special mention going out to the final track 'Clean', which has a filthy gargled concotion of low frequency energy that wouldn't sound out of place on Souped Up. Top notch.

Logan is spitting deft bars over "Turn Up", a crisp and cool stepper laced with smooth chords. "Evanition" juggles different energies from the mellow to the nasty with a classy touch, while "Echo Tone" gets a little more melodic flex into the mix. "Out Of Town Foes" maintains the soulful mood, while keeping the synth lines snappy and slick for those who prefer a little quirkiness in their club tunage.

Review: More saucy sounds from Bristol's most brazen lords of the ring.

"WUT", meanwhile, sounds like the title suggests. A gurgling guffy bassline that scratches it knuckles along the ground while dreamy pads and warm punch drums do all the groundwork. Kiss it!

Review: Document One dropped their debut album on Shogun Audio last year and it was packed full of wicked dancefloor anthem, as well a a number of liquid and jungle cuts. Anamorphic is their first outing since then and it's gone down the heavier route whilst also incorporating some junglist tones, a wicked combination that represents the diversity present on Friction's label. 'Rave Culture' exemplifies that best, with a ferocious breakbeat and chopped up vocals combining to make a monstrously heavy and catchy club-focused riddim. Lovely stuff.

Review: Those who've met Maurice Fulton - or even just paid close attention to his career over the last couple of decades - will tell you that he seems to inhabit a totally different galaxy to anyone else. We're blessed, then, that he's once again touched down on 'Earth' and delivered a killer EP for Peggy Gou's Gudu label. He joins forces with the South Korean star on deliciously wayward opener "Jigoo", a retro-futurist, turn-of-the-90s style house number smothered in weird electronic noises, starry chords and liquid bass. "Not Sure How I Would" sees him dive into intergalactic jazz-funk territory - think trademark disco bass guitar, trippy noises, live sounding drums and effects for days - while "One Itself" is a skewed drum track laden with hand percussion hits and his trademark weirdo electronic noises.

Review: Ever ahead the game, Tom Rockwell has been self-isolating long before COVID-19 and brave sounds like these are the results of such rituals. His first productions of the new decade, they take off where last summer's "Level / Block" left us: "Vent" is a brisk sandpaper jam, all droney and groany, while the title track itself is one of the most wholesome, uplifting and sci-fi tunes he's done since his Shogun days. Elsewhere we find him getting cabin fever with man-of-the-moment Jack Workforce on the string pinging "Ditch" before closing - like all good craftsmen - with a full-on power tool of a tune "Drill". Ugly stuff. Stay indoors, stay safe, stay isolated.

Review: Have US jump-up duo Sub Killaz just dropped an album in disguise? Last week they gave us the feisty six-track "Ghetto Blaster" EP, now they're dropped another seismic sixer in the form of "Block Party". Just as forthright and banger-laden as the previous, highlights include the grizzly high end frequencies of "Pussycat", the much deeper steppy clangs and bangs of "Dis" and those sleazy west coast style synth leads on "Culture". Closing with the pure grit and savagery of "Rewind Mi Selecta", whether this is an album or just a massive bundle of tracks dropped on us over the space of a week we're not sure but we've loved this experience. Killaz by name...

Review: Audaz's re-edit series reaches its 20th installment, which is remarkable when you consider that they only kicked things off in October! This latest outing finds the mysterious Lolita digging deeper than ever, so much so that we can only identify the source material of three cuts here: '191' reworks Change's Jocelyn Brown-vocalled 'Angel In My Pocket' and '199' revisits Astrud Gilberto's 1972 Brazilian fave 'Take It Easy My Brother Charlie', while '200' is based on The Stranglers' 1986 hit 'Always The Sun'. Most of the rest of the EP appears to draw on African and Latin music for inspiration, but we venture back into disco territory on '194' and the excellent '198'.

Review: Now let's be real here. There aren't many people matching up with Deep Dark & Dangerous when it comes to dubstep release quality. This last 18 months has been a display of extreme dominance, with this latest five track project being yet another example of that. Featuring 10 steaming originals, from the likes of Oxossi, Sepia, Taiko Dalek One and more heavyweight names, they really aren't playing around. Highlights for this one have to include the horn-heavy LFO ramblings of Angelic Roots' 'Thunder Dub', alongside the subtle eastern twinges of 'Cobra Shake' from Khanum and the slapping percussion of REZ's 'Adidas'. Lovely stuff.
