Thin Air (12")
Cat: 116 DSR. Rel: 25 Apr 16
  1. Thin Air (7:28)
  2. I Repeat (6:06)
  3. All Out (8:03)
  4. Waybackmachine (5:58)
Review: A Made Up Sound man Dave Huismans is not messing around on this 12", his first outing on Delsin for six years. Opener "Thin Air" may contain creepy melodies, strange samples and curious orchestral samples, but these largely play second fiddle to a booming techno rhythm. "All Out" and "Waybackmachine" also hit home hard, with trademark rhythmic madness and densely layered chords combining to create two hectic and intense broken techno smashers. Even the EP's most laidback moment, the noticeably deeper "I Repeat", owes its' power to a surging sub-bass line and some snappy post-dubstep rhythms, rather than its' faintly unsettling electronics and melancholic musical elements.

  1. Footcrab (Denham edit) (5:00)
  2. Footcrab (AG edit) (5:24)
Played by: HOVE
Review: Under the name Addison Groove, UK producer Tony Williams has racked up a healthy discography over the past 6 years. Say the name Addison Groove though, and most heads will start chanting, "Footcrab, Footcrab, Footcrab," such is the seminal nature of his breakout Swamp 81 drop. Out of nowhere comes this fresh pair of edits from Denham and AG aka Addison Groove himself. The former adds some extra boom to the original with some deadly amen breaks and off-kilter 808 kicks, offering a nice counterpart to AG's own contemporary revision on the flip. After remaining dubplate only for a few years, it's nice to see this slick version finally available on wax.

  1. Solitude (5:07)
  2. On The Cusp (4:51)
  3. Alone In A Timespan (4:05)
  4. Calm (4:49)
Review: Keysound's South Coast connection expands as Atlas, a Brighton contemporary to Etch, is welcomed into the fold with the Solitude EP which stretches the boundaries of the label's rollage aesthetic, weightless synth experimentation and established sub heavy paradigms to near breaking point. Keysound followers should recognise the title cut, it's been a set opener for Dusk + Blackdown for well over a year and it's easy to see why. A palate cleansing opener subtly shifts towards intricate, skeletal drum flickers and sub gravity and the sort of emotional apex "Hyph Mngo" once delivered. Atlas deploys a similar approach on subsequent track "On The Cusp" whilst the B-side features some superb experiments in bass science. The dubby, bass-heavy rollage of "Calm" is a fine way to end a super Keysound debut.

  5. Cataphract (feat Kuedo) (2:33)
  6. Chunk (2:17)
Review: One of the earliest wave ambassadors to enjoy large label accreditation, Sami Baha delivers his first full Mu EP and doesn't disappoint: "Mavericks One" is laden with so much sub bass it's clinically obese while its topline remains slim-line and floaty. Deeper into the EP we're seduced by oriental charm throughout; "Still" and "Dough" massage the soul while "Tozko Paran" twists the senses with trippy Q&As that shouldn't work but really do. "Cataphract" plays the consummate slow-trap club bumper while "Chunk" pays homage to all the fatties out there with its restrained energy and delicate arpeggio-led dynamic. A stunning debut EP for Mu.

  4. Jersey (3:44)
Review: Not to be confused with the controversial plagiarising German rapper of the same name, this particular Bushido is Glaswegian, this is his debut EP (following cameos on the likes of LuckyMe, AstralBlack and TryYaLuck) and it's 100 percent original as you'll learn the second the needle hits it. From the cascading bleeps, MAW-style drums and rifle vocal shots of "Palm Trees" right the way through to the devilishly stampy dancehall-in-space rhythm of "Jersey", Bushido builds on what has become one of the UK's most exciting musical melting pots of the century in his own inimitable fashion. Cashflashingly good.

Dotted EP (12")

  1. Dotted (5:41)
  2. Track 2 (5:47)
  3. Dotted (Dro Carey remix) (5:44)
  4. 8th (4:32)
Review: It's an all-Australian takeover on Tempa for their 107th release, coming through in the shape of Cliques, Sydney's Hamish Dixon and George Nicholas. "Dotted", the title track, is a fistful of rolling kick drums and scattered percussion, all coated in a fine layer of minimalistic bleeping - a new and min-melting strain of UK-flavoured techno with a definite stutter; mastermind Dro Carey (TTT) remixes the track into a stompier, more cinematic bruiser with a vividly odd kind f flex in classic Carey style. "Untitled" goes for a steppers rhythm beneath solitary pads and aqueous melodies, while "8Th" ups the ante and delivers a nasty, menacing groove to get your head bouncing in pigeon-mode. Recommended!

Ambush (12")
Cat: TEMPA 106. Rel: 18 Apr 16
  1. Ambush (6:07)
  2. Direction (6:12)
Review: Since 2010, and coming out of the whole post-dubstep scene, Manchester's Alex Coulton has been among the best of the UK bass artists. His skills being the mixing board have seen him travel from label to label, stopping off at the likes of Idle Hands, All Caps, Livity Sound, and even the mighty Tempa. Coulton returns to the latter with a follow-up to last year's "Recall" bombshell, and he's in no mood to mess around here. "Ambush" is a tribalesque tech-house number with a rattling percussion that renders it UK through and through; "Direction" sees the producer return to his more usual mood by serving up a broken bundle of drums and percussion curling around loose melodies and a dubbed-out makeover. For fans of Hessle output - what that bassline, son! Hot!

  4. Kassumbula (4:36)
  5. Cobra Preta (4:31)
  6. B18 (3:51)
Review: Along with DJ Nigga Fox, DJ Marfox has been the emblem of Principe's rise to fame, the Lisbon label that has been causing a stir in the house and techno world thanks to its new and quirky take on the genres. More than anything, it has been the injection of African rhythms and all-round craziness that has earned these rhythms such fame, and thankfully this test EP by Marfox is just as bold and curious as the rest. "2685" is a flute-driven monster that has more in common with a tribal dance than a techno cut, and the same goes for the ear-shattering bullet percussion chops of "Unsound". "Tarraxo Everyday" slows the momentum down to a steady pace, "Kassumbula" oils the machines back up and gets the motors going for the heavy pounding that features on "Cobra Preta", while "B 18" takes us down the final hurdle, a broken groove with plenty of tribal fury and Marfox's inimitable pace. Unmissable.

Review: There's little info at hand regarding DJC, the latest contributor to the Night Slugs Club Constructions series. Some are saying its Jam City working under an alias, whilst there is also the possibility it's an unknown producer who put his music forward after the label's open call for music back in 2014 with the Club Constructions Community. If the latter is the truth, it's easy to see why Bok and LVIS 1990 were impressed by the producer's sound, with this 12" brandishing a quartet of precision tooled instrumentals that will offer the more skilled DJs the chance to bring the tempo down and get those hips rolling. Big boom bap business!

  2. Worst (2:27)
  3. Soundcheck (feat Simbad) (3:59)
  4. Worst (Sinjin Hawke remix) (3:49)
Review: Mr Scratcha DVA gets deeper and more inventive with every release. And this limited 10" for Hyperdub is one of the broadest, most exciting releases he's put together to date. "Take It All" is a 23rd century ballad with barely any drum work in sight, just pensive bass and a purring alluring vocal. "Worst" takes a more tribal Afro-stomp with system rattling bass and dubby vocal call-outs. "Soundcheck" sits on the right side of weird with its weave of drums, studio FX, reverse twists and a classic soul sample breakdown. Finally Sinjin Hawke takes "Worst" back to halftempo arrangement with more space around the horns and added synth soul. Quite frankly a ridiculously good EP. Don't miss it.

Review: Sublime retro future breaks from Keysound affiliate Etch. As suggested in the title, none of these breaks have real titles; it's just all about the crisp drum work, vast roominess and old school dynamics from the brushed drum swing of the first slice and the rubber ball bass of the second, right the way through the ghostly vocal tones and MC commands on the fourth slice, this is the sound of a man who knows his foundations inside out. Sneaker Social Club don't release anywhere near as much as they should.... But when they do you should always pay attention.

Review: The fifth 12" on Bloc's offshoot label comes from Facta, who follows up strong EPs on Idle Hands, Tempa and his own Wisdom Teeth imprint with another fine collection of cuts. "Alsatian" is a fine electro roller, with the Bristol-based producer peppering a metallic rhythm track with serious electronic blips and sparse, intergalactic melody lines. Beneath delivers a more atmospheric, dubstep-influenced rework full of fuzzy textures, wonky noises and serious sub-bass pressure, before Facta rounds off the EP with the snappy drum machine handclaps, early '90s bleeps and post-dubstep rhythms of "Scotch Mist".

Played by: Flori
Review: The next fresh-faced artist to follow in the footsteps of Batu, Hodge, Bruce and Simo Cell and pass through the Livity Sound School of excellence is the unheralded Forest Drive West. All we know for sure is that Forest Drive West hails from London, and is quite possibly but not necessarily named after a street in Leytonstone. Focusing on this debut release though, Forest Drive West hones in on an approach - long form track length and entrancing progression - that nods more to classic minimal techno than the usual nifty timespan of more 'UK' or 'soundsystem' minded tunes as you would commonly find on Livity. However, the mood is certainly Livity-compatible with its sparse approach to atmosphere and tough rhythmic arsenal. In simpler terms, this is another Livity 12" of A-grade club material.

Review: Blacklist hit release number five and it's the label bossman doing what he does best: taking us down dark paths on twisted, subverted adventures we didn't even know existed. "Space Horror" bundles us into the boot of a rusty old rocket and speeds down the backstreets of Omicron Persei 8 where the drums slouch along the slimy alleys and bassline groan and fall out of dark corners. "Walk On Lava" sees us being chucked out of the spaceship from a great height into the eye of a volcano. With blistering kicks and a tense acid line, will we make it out on time or will our geese get cooked? There's only way to find out...

Review: Happa's rise through the UK bass-hedged techno scene has been both quick and steady, with the whipper snapper releasing increasingly impressive 12" after 12" for labels such as Church, Bleep, Boomkat Editions, and his own PT/5 Records. His first EP for the label came late last year, and this return to the label is marked by a wonderfully diverse cascade of rhythmic melodies that begin with the polyphonous chimes of "Blackberreh!", followed swiftly by the more heads-down, lighters-out bass drums of "Catch-22". Over on the flip, "Drag" transforms what at first seems to be a sullen bag of drones, into a deep and soulful house burner for the heads.

Review: Following last year's sudden reappearance on Trusik, Tony Williams (most commonly known these days as Addison Groove) has clearly rekindled his love for 140 music in a major way. Not only with brand new originals, but the re-launch of his hugely respected Transistor imprint. It's a fittingly delicious release to relaunch with, too... "Atijo" is a rolling techno-influenced jam with gritty analogue edges to the relentless bass while "Ina" follows the similar energy but with very subtle African folk samples and lilting piano vapour trails. Welcome back Headhunter!

Review: Lokane stepped up for the first time back in August with a killer grime EP for Infinite Machine, and he's back on the young Nervous Horizon. Coming through with something of an extended EP, Lokane lays down some utter truth with these five curb-side grime experiments that recall much of the Night Slugs output. That's right, you got it, that means broken shreds of percussion bouncing around and demolishing anything in from of them. "Visions" sets of a drunken drum stroll that never quite seems to take shape (that's a compliment, by the way), but there's also plenty of more hypnotic and mind-bending rhythms such as "Body Double", "In The Trap", or "Overproof". Hyperdub mainstay DVA rounds out the 12" with a trademark Soule: Power remix of "In The Trap".

  1. Beater (5:35)
  2. Density (4:53)
Review: Having previously delivered two out of the three releases on Timedance himself, boss man Batu has decided to rope in old pal Lurka for 12" number four. The Bristol-based bass head predictably hits the spot. "Beater" is as rhythmically interesting and sparsely produced as previous outings, with a handful of elements - drum machine hits, rubbery bass and occasional whispers of melody - being worked hard throughout. The result is a typically raw and moody dancefloor jacker. Flipside "Density" is even heavier and arguably more impressive, with Lurka cleverly layering bleeping melody lines and Motor City chords over a loose-limbed rhythm and booming sub-bass line.

  4. Circular (5:03)
Review: Doncaster's foremost expert on all things rave, Mella Dee, steps up for the latest release on DEXT. He's got a hard act to follow after 'that' Hodge remix of Callahan on the previous DEXT missive, but Mella Dee proves he's more than up for the challenge with this Deep Soul 12". Indeed DEXT are calling it his strongest fusion of house, techno and jungle yet and we can't really find any cause to disagree. The title track sets a thunderous tone, throwing down a crucial melange of filtered amens, chopped-up vocals and Reece bass lines that will grip hold of your affections immediately. From here, Mella veers off into straight up jacking house territory on "Universal", whilst "Circular" is there for the heads down crew. Sandwiched inbetween is a rather moody refix of the title track from Endian.

Review: Racer Productions came steam-rolling through the scene earlier this year with an excellent debut single from Emma De Seze, and now the label are back with another fresh name, the supremely talented newcomer Mischa Lively. "Pillow" sounds like it's come from the hands of highly experienced producer - someone like Joey Anderson - and its rickety, off-kilter percussion is full of swing and pleasure; "Blakeup" breaks down the rigid 4/4 groove in favour of a more twisted, kick-heavy hybrid cut. "A Posture For Thought" is considerably more stripped-down and carries more of a techno swag, while "Held Open" once again tears the house format down to a jittery, dub-infused vibe.

Review: For All Caps, it's quality over quantity. Last year saw just the one release from the Glasgow label, but it was a veritable gem from Vancouver secret weapon Florist. If they release just one record this year, that's fine too because this Rave Archive EP from the mysterious Neuroshima is quite superb. Tracks by Neuroshima have been appearing in mixes from Kowton, BUFO, and their contemporaries as far back as late 2014, so kudos to Bake and his fellow All Cappers for collating them on this 12". The six tracks here effortlessly join the dots between post-rave "intelligent techno", the dark '90s IDM of Future Sound of London, and the cut-up, pitched-down jungle breaks of one-time N Tone/Ninja Tune artist Neotropic. In other words, it's an atmospheric collection of paranoid, retro-futurist gems that will sound deliciously fresh to those under the age of 30, and wonderfully evocative of a bygone age for those of a finer vintage.

From the pulsating subs and wavy melodic twangs of "Setsuko" to the shimmering-but-mangled harp echoes of "Sugar Acid", very few parallels can be made bar, perhaps, Chinese grime aficionado Swimful. Far East by inspiration, far out by design, Odeko is on to something special here.

"Gated" is where it all began, an instrumental cut from Okzharp and Samrai that has become a cornerstone of Keysound sessions, leading all involved to ponder it's mileage as the backdrop to some vocal input. Cue some live one take recording sessions with three different vocalists: Jamaican Shokryme, UK singer Specialist Moss and South African MC Ruffest, who previously appeared on LV album Sebenza. Take your pick, all five versions here exemplify the freshness Keysound are consistently promoting.

Review: We've been waiting a long time on this one. First spotted on Loefah's Rinse show well over a year ago, the deep spacious dyanmics and pensive flow of "Production House" owe more to authentic dub than any modern genre. So crisp, restrained and detailed with intricate flourishes and dynamics, it was tailor made for vinyl. "Fabrik" is more of a modern dance twist up with a stately tech 4/4 and some superbly manipulated bass textures. Minimalism is such a dark art to master... Orson definitely has the secret.

Review: With the likes of Batu drawing so much attention for his new bend on techno, how about a little appreciation for what Parris is doing. For an idea of what Parris has done with a 808 bass drum check out his Idle Hands debut then revert back to this 12"s woofing "Skeletal". With some light percussion added over the top, this track demands a proper dub soundsystem. It's a similar situation on "Bloom" too, only the bass has been turned down to allow for something a little more subtle... a little. Meanwhile "South East Of The Mountain" provides an alternative rhythm track with atmospheric marimbas and other African percussion giving the production as much an exotic flavour as it does an urban touch.

Review: Ancient Monarchy welcomes back the darkly beats of Rhythmic Theory for a second time following the Bristol producer's Lucid State / Shores of Caladan 12" which opened the Berceuse Heroique sub-label's account last year. It's dropping around the same time as Parris' debut 12" on AM (don't miss that) with Rhythmic Theory still reeling from releases on Idle Hands and Blackest Ever Black's A14 imprint. This four-track EP serves up two syncopated techno cuts - "Travelling Without Moving" the hit - with "The Bends" simmering the bass in compensation for some extra reverb. The two beatless cuts veer into ambient dub techno territory with strokes of trance and rave thrown to not upset Echospace.

Review: The Mu come through with a debut proper for Silk Road Assassins. Formed of Tom E. Vercetti, Lovedr0id & Chemist, Silk Road Assassins previously featured on the exhaustive label compilation Planet Mu put out last year and contributed to the Peace Edits 12? on Gobstopper too. The Reflection Spaces 12" represents their debut release proper, and sees the trio investigate a loose narrative theme based around a "retro-futuristic/dystopian city, with development into game music in mind" across seven evocative soundscapes. If you maintain any semblance of interest in current strains of instrumental grime you should be all over this!

Review: Boxed baron and all-round Slackker Paul Lynch builds on last year's EP Backwards Light for R&S with another sextet of instrumental grime distillations... Tech-influenced, spatially aware and a fine balance of dreamland synths and paranoid, cold dynamics; his signatures should be known to anyone with a passing fancy in future beat music and they're strong then ever right here: The freezer strings of "Swan Filters", the crushed off-beat riff and deep cave echoes of "Skeleton Crew", the tsunami waves of "Pigeons", the estranged synth boogie of "Hundred Flute", the shuffled take on classic electro that is "Replenish" and the final introverted eastern adieu "Returning Geese" all add up to an EP that genuinely stands out in the current sea of creativity instrumental grime is enjoying right now.

Review: 300 reasons to be cheerful... Spooky's returned with another pranged out grime bouncer. Taking an evocative King Leonidas sample and using it as a trigger point for iced out sci-fi synths, 808 beats and squelchy robot bass, it's another stone-cold Spooky slapdown. Asa & Sorrow switch up on the remix, adding a more of a gun-slinging chug to the drums while retaining the gutsy 'no retreat, no surrender' vibe of the original. Biblical.

Review:  Something just feels right about Throwing Shade landing on the mighty Ninja Tune. The Londoner's music is free-spirited, vibrant, full of colour, and has the ability to appeal to a wide variety of listens and DJs alike. Much like her previous releases for the likes of Ominira and Happy Skull, Throwing Shade's five tunes are a whirlpool of styles and ideas that somehow make sense as a whole; moreover, her music contains something deeply personal, and although many of her sounds are rooted in an 80's mysticism, they sounds totally singular and representative of the times that we live in. Rather than branding it under one banner, the only way to describe this artist's music is to say that it is certainly fresh, compelling, and altogether enjoyable.

Review: Teklife alumni Tripletrain makes his debut on Baltimore's Araca with two delicious slices of uptempo breaks. Hopping and switching somewhere between jungle, footwork and drum & bass, both cuts fit Araca's formula-free attitude perfectly. "Try To Believe" is a soft focus, dreamy juke joint with subtle shades of dub laced throughout the track and militant amen structures on the fills. "Never Could Be" rolls with hurricane Detroit minded synths and a shuffling kicks that create a lolloping sense of momentum that refuses to let up. Icy.

Review: Aside from the one Pinch 12", Cold Recordings has largely operated as a platform for the Tectonic boss to promote a new breed of bass fusionist talent; Elmono, Batu, Acre and Ipman have all had early releases on the label. This latest Cold 12" is quite the proposition, introducing the unheralded Latvian talent W3C, whose four-track single, Atmospheric Entry, is the equivalent of an aural slap to the chops. W3C engages us with a deadly quartet of cuts that see industrial techno meet rolling UK-style broken rhythms - how this sounds on a decent soundsystem is something we will be investigating this weekend. If you are a fan of Mumdance and Logos you need to get on this.

Review: This debut release from footwork crew Teklife's label sees them pay tribute to DJ Rashad, the late, great innovator who passed away in the spring of 2014. Afterlife gathers together a collection of DJ Rashad tracks co-produced by Rashad's close friends and associates, including DJ Spinn, Traxman, DJ Manny and more. As the label themselves state, this 14 track album really conveys the wealth of musical influences and knowledge Rashad possessed with soul, hip-hop, house, techno and many more all brought together at 160 BPM. "Afterlife is our tribute to our friend and our inspiration. Rest In Peace DJ Rashad," Teklife write. Enough said. A must for all fans of Rashad.
