Review: With this release, WOW Signal Records presents a modern view on bass oriented electronic music. From Russian producer Cyberworm's "Breath Slow" (future garage), Kontext's dub techno epic "Doubling Theory (Meteors)" to the techstep of Melotronics' "Launch Pad" and Diagram's leftfield drum & bass on "Orbital Collapse". These genres are united by a uniform deep sound of the planet. They even released it on vinyl, because they are intent on spreading the music that makes them vibe with other bass lovers the world over.
Review: On previous outings, Toronto bass head Rumbleton has stuck to a retro-futurist script, delivering killer tributes to '93 style jungle. While it's been two years since his last single, it's quite heartening to find that he's still as obsessed with the roots of drum & bass as ever before. To be fair, A-side "A New Day" accompanies some brilliantly cut-up jungle breakbeats and pounding sub-bass with the kind of dark textures you'd find on Burial records, as well as some tech-step style electronics. B-side "Conscious", on the other hand, doesn't strive as hard for experimental acceptance: while the fearsome 'riddims' are savagely cut-up, the booming bass and rastaman vocal samples could have been taken wholesale from early jungle classics.
Review: Two weeks after Off-World Colonies' launch mission, we plot Gaff & Cityspeak's journey through the jungle stars once again... Eight minute monster "Snake Scale" is all crunchy 150 hardcore before dipping right the way down to 120-ish on a vibed out house mid-section, "Procession" is a nutty acid jungle workout complete with a swooning emotional breakdown, "Jah Focus" is a deep dip into jazz with its loose rattling drums before "Rhythmic Desire" goes supernova with some insane drum edits and divine vocal sample that literally gives you the finger. Serious jungle business.
Review: Oof! It's finally here; two east London mic dons link up over a heavy Chimpo beat on Jamakabi's Rhythm Rollers for a name that truly lives up to its name. Doing the rounds in various forms since last year, "Wickedest Ting" touches wax in two perfect version; the body-slamming original and a bashing jungle twist from the Ghosty Men. Wicked.
Review: Launched earlier this year digitally, Dub Phizix's Ohmgrown series is a collection of tracks sculpted from the ground up. All completely designed from scratch and finished without the usual endless polish and over detailing, these fresh-free-for-all halftime cuts represent the Manchester artist at his most lucid. They also carry more than enough space for creative MCs to let loose on. From the strange tape stop trippiness of "Engage" to the cosmic oriental plucks and soft cries of "The Waterbody" by way of 23rd century dancehall fury of "Get Fresh", this is Dub Phizix at his most direct and innovative. Get involved or go ohm.
Review: Prepare to fire! Skeppy's got a brand new cut and he's and everyone's allowed a cheeky buzz on it. Yes it's finally time to get your grubby paws on the long-awaited "Musket". One of the Exit Records artists' most divisive of tunes, unlike his darker deeper tackle it's a jaunty, spiky jump-up tune. Addictive, fun to mix and guaranteed to get the crowd all wound up, this has all the hallmarks of a festival D&B anthem this summer. Grab it while you can.
