Review: Hot to trot vibes machine FooR goes balls-deep on this epic 50+ track compendium. Bulging at the seams with slinky two-steps, stinking basslines and every essential element in between, it's an incredible collection of on-point bass music cuts spun around the UKG / bass house axis. Those with a soulful interest should instantly fall for cuts like Thorn's "In 2 Deep", anthem-addicts need to know about Foor's own heavenly synth/guttural bass jam "Lift Me Up", bass-devoted breakers will go giddy for "Don't Hold Back", gully munchers will chow down heartily on Tyrone's "Ravin Face" while DJs in need of more of a classical deep roll-out should be smitten by Tengu's "Evil Ting". And that's not even scratching the surface - this is a true trove of future talent and shadowy sonic skill. Golly gosh YosH.
Review: Hailing from unlikely new bass capital Denver, Colorado, Ultra Bass have already made quite an impression internationally and to mark their 10th release they have unveiled another label compilation. Boasting '19 monster house and garage tracks straight from underground scenes across the globe', this collection really does perfectly capture the temperature of the scene right now. Highlights include the merciless big bass house steamroller "Feel It", the tropical doom-house tip of "2015 Crew 4 Real" and the bonkers hypo-step of "Magical".
