Reso – Front Mission EP
Reso blends a number of bass music influences, welding them together with consistent industrial themes.
Chatta B & Liondub – Ganjabread Man (Remix)
A welcome rehashing of the original, choosing to recolor the song in a more ethereal hue. Expect pillowy, introspective listening and an effort as catchy as it is dreamy.
Shinbu – Nightmarchers EP
A riveting, pitch-black listen with a superbly chosen arrangement of percussive work. Demolishing kicks and nightmarish ambience feature in equal measure and the whole record is better for its frequent dips into eastern, warlike themes–one to be uncomfortably enjoyed at the back of a dingy basement rave or an industrial warehouse.
Mella Dee & Infinite Coles – A Little Longer (Whistle Posse)
Led by detuned blips, a scratchy, almost grating breaks sample, and a bassline as subtle as it is smooth, the track feels as though it’s on the cusp of being danceable, without any of the expected hallmarks of what one might come to expect from a modern dance track.
DJ Q, Shola Ama & Hans Glader – I Can’t Stay
The transatlantic connections between the UK and US underground music have blossomed in recent years, with a number of collaborations, crews, and labels cropping up as audiences have expanded. DJ Q, Shola Ama, and Hans Glader‘s latest charts a strange course, starting in Huddersfield, England (DJ Q), stopping in London (Shola Ama) before flying stateside…
Sammy Virji – Quarantine Done
Sammy Virji’s trailblazing run of eccentric etudes and uptempo shellers continues in a ripe run of form with his latest offering “Quarantine Done”. As a luminary talent in the “NUKG” wave, Virji’s ear for both the bumpy and the crowd-pleasing has rightly earned him plaudits, features, and support across the board. His latest is playful…
Hans Glader – Mad 4 U EP
Mad 4 U is one to keep the musos and the dance heads nodding along through the summer.
Ternion Sound – DUPLOC043
Reverb and delay, as with any atmospheric dub or dubstep track, are instrumental in setting the tone, and the wetwork coupled with spooky pads make for some delectably dark listening.
Dr Cryptic – About You
…Sludgy bass movement and no-nonsense, 4×4 drums, marking another dynamic entry in the dirty doctor’s toolbox.
