In The Face – Fri Nov 22nd

Propa excited to have Hostage on board for this one and playing the more bassline/rave end of his endeavours no less! Also hyped to be showcasing the sounds of K-Orse & Basshound and Dave Shades, plus there’s those infamous sheffield all-stars and support from local boy Skepon. Then for those who like it a bit harder Room2 sees a tag-team unlike any other as Irish lads Act Normal link up with the Pi-Eyed crew from Glasgow. Expect them to assemble transformer style into a huge, rampaging, celtic robot once they locate all the energon cubes buckfast. Man, this is gonna get messy…

K-Orse & Bass Hound – Shady Bench EP

Moving to Sheffield seems to have had a positive effect on K-Orse & Bass Hound, as they’ve really stepped up their game for this EP, with tracks like Steel City & Gully Get Mad paying direct homage to that influence. Mainly full of whistling synths and niche influenced beats, though I think our favourite track has to be Spookerstar, with it’s cheesy Halloween pop intro giving way to an absolute bassline monster! This EP is definitely full of win.

Krissi B ft Laura Lou – I Want U

Being a small independent record label and releasing vinyl isn’t easy (we should know) and that’s why we have maximum respect for Kiosk Records, and rightly so as their latest release is a banger. Featuring the vocal talents of Laura Lou, a long term collaborator with Krissi, we can’t deny the vocal hook is catchy. The original version rolls along nicely but really comes into it’s own on both Krissi B‘s 2step Mix, a skippy affair with some lovely steel drums and also the EJ remix, who takes the original and cuts the vocals up as well as introducing a seriously gritty bassline. Available from all good (and evil) record shops.

Audiogutter – Derail EP

Audiogutter comes in with both barrels blazing for this latest release on Mutant Bass Records. Opener Skeleton Tribe is an excellent blend of hard electro house, midrange dubstep basslines and techno. One of the best things about this EP is how every track is different yet retains Audiogutters unique sound, and he isn’t afraid to experiment as on his collab with Paperchase, a twisted take on the grime instrumental. Out now for pennies, pounds or free.

Filthy Vicars – 2000 Likes EP

A free EP celebrating 2000 likes on Facebook from bass duo Filthy Vicars, including several remixes and a couple of original tracks. They get off to a good start with Outrun, utilising samples from the popular SEGA game of the same name over a grime-esque bassline. The Breach remix is nicely catchy and closer Pass Me By (A Trolley Snatcha refix) is a seriously floorkilling edit of an already heavy tune. Definitely enough bangers in here to warrant the free download.

Excision – Shambhala 2012 Mix

Once a year, I still need a horrendously bait dose of nails dubstep, and this is where I look. I know it’s crossed over into the teen head-bopping Skrillex wannabe dolts, but still…once a year I forgive where this type of dubstep has ended up (ie on Radio 1) and enjoy some machine noises and big bass lines
