MR BUZZBY /
NOISSES CRANK DAT /
LINDOWS WL012 £3.50
Wicky Lindow's next 3 tracker comes courtesy of Noisses, who's been
smashing up the dance of late with a remix on Pure Filth as well as with
his own previous original stylings in the form of Square Face and End Of.
This cheeky slab of noise is a fun, in-your-face adventure into sparkling
synths, flame-grilled bass and scattered, pigeon-stepping beats.
The A side Mr Buzzby is a retro-electro, quirky hot-stepper which pops
like its on hot coals with naughty, low-slung bass stabs and a nostalgic
On the flip, Crank Dat beefs up the bass and lays down some p-funk
licks to warm the cockles and set up the floor. One for the party crew for
real, this is a prime-time, hands-in-the-air affair. Jumpin.
T-Vexed, the second track on the flip, is engineered to scare and will
probably cause heart failure as the breakdown roars into a laser bassline
and it's staunch lead riff. Not for the faint hearted but topping off this
fantastically freaky record with more of the trademark Wicky Lindows

YOU MAKE ME
DAEGA SOUND FEEL / FORMANT FRMNT008 £3.50
Notes... Vancouver's own, Daega Sound takes you into deep, murky waters and
bathes the listener in bass on the 8th release from Texas based Formant
Recordings. Beginning with the soulful, minimal tech-funk hybrid 'You
Make Me Feel' on the A side--Warm pads envelop the eardrum, while a
proper helping of well placed horns lick the postage stamp to send you on
your journey. Flip the plate for some refreshingly uplifting sunny day
vibes on 'Silver Dawn.' Taking root in an upbeat 2 step planter, this one
really begins to flower when the vocal pulls it's shade back. Getting heads
on the floor is no longer an issue. Your biggest problem will be finding
enough friends to help you harvest.

ninja training Rack N Ruin is all upgraded and collaborated for this
First up is Blood and Guts, a homage to dancehall soundsystems and
carnival vibes with a steel hook riff which is as relentless as it is
addictive. Monster drums and calypso percussion underpin this bassy
roller which will carve up crowds like butter on a sunny day. RackNRuin
bringing a new sound to the table with some restraint and deft, technical
Next up is collab with Hardcore Beats stalwarts VENT called "It's
Over". Anyone familiar with VENT's sound will spot their touch here
and there but what really astonishes about this record is the menacing
energy that runs throughout. Offbeat synth risers and a juggernaut
bassline power up and down the scale with militant force to slay later
floors with total authority. Dangerous.
Last up on the EP is "Crop Circle". No stranger to things that go bump
in the night, Future Perfect's resident alien lifeform shows us a hint of
how the other side live. Beaming down from a fusion-driven,
neutronium-powered starship; Rack N Ruin cuts a swathe through the
nebula with funk lasers and anti-gravity distortion fields to further change
the landscape of house music. Its rave Jim, but not as we knew it. Prepare
for the invasion.

THE BASSIST & SMOKE ONE / TERMINAL
NOTHINGS FINAL DUSK
Notes... THE BASSIST
Vlad Gutierrez is no stranger to the US Northwest broken beats
community. He has been spinning records since 98 and has had the
opportunity to play on many international dancefloors. Relocated to
Portland, OR in 2003 after being part of the "Essential Drum & Bass"
crew in Barcelona,Spain. He then started "Madkraft" in 2004, a drum n'
bass project alongside Invid and Mecca. In 2007 he began a transition
towards Dubstep and since then this genre has become his passion. His
first Dubstep release came out in 2007 on Aleutian Audio and stayed in
Digital Tunes' top 10 for a couple weeks. Currently, he is busy producing
beats for labels such as Hollow Point, Bassism, Stupid Fly, Dub Alliance
and Rogue Dubs.
TRIAGE is the collaborative union of Debt, Liar, and Seth Norman.
Raised on the renegade party culture of pacific-northwestern America,
the trio discovered a mutual affinity for music production, DJing and the
cutting-edge sounds of Drum and Bass in 2006. With imminent releases
on some of the greatest labels in drum n bass and dubstep music, as well
as support and recognition from a litany of artists around the globe,
Triage is set to be bigger, better, and louder than ever in 2010.

KULTUR & KILLER PROFIT
FUNK IBREAKSFU014 £3.50
A brand new signing to iBreaks Funk, Bristol-based HiHat is a producer
who manages the impressive feat of combining ultra-groovy beats with a
political message on his debut track for the funkier offshoot of the
iBreaks family. A slice of party rocking rhetoric to place on the shelf
alongside the likes of Adam
Freeland's legendary Bill Hicks-sampling 12" We Want Your Soul, Killer
Profit features UK comedian Mark Thomas wondering out loud why
more company directors do not find themselves staring out from the
inside of a jail cell, something plenty of people may have been asking
themselves in recent times. Expect funk to the max, wah wah guitar riffs,
plenty of scratches and basslines jam-packed with wobble. This is a tune
to get the girls shaking their hips while the boys brock out in wild
abandon. On the flip, the more progressive sounds of Spanish duo Kultur
& Colombo take over, making this the perfect package for a
diverse range of DJs. Another great release in what’s going to be a hectic
year for iBreaks - enjoy!

BOUNCING PIGS /
EXPRESSILLON EXPR303 £3.99
Notes... Even if it’s only in 2007 that Redux name makes it appearance on the
electro scene , Nikko – the man who hides behind this guise – has been a
familiar name in the more up-tempo register with no less than 20 releases
along with Karbon 14 sound system in the mid 90’s.
Keeping his experimental approach to music, Redux, having achieved
maturity, doesn’t need to force the pace anymore to captivate and
electrify the crowds and starts to flirt with a vibe more close to electro-
house and breakbeat.
Very fast he signed his first e.p. to American label Portamento but it’s in
2008 and with the title ‘‘Diskobreaks’’ that he puts the basis of a more
personal style to his music which kicks straight in with its pounding
analogical bass lines and fractured sounds harmonized with rhythms and
samples from hip-hop, funk or disco.
First selected on Level 75’ “Spicy Cunts” compilation then released on
Katorza - a nu label he runs with Maelstrom – in 2009, this track has
gained much respect and support from International artists such as Popof,
Crookers, Rico Tubbs, Aquasky, Malente, Cut la Roc and Lee
Mortimer to name a few.
Redux follows up this successful run with several critically acclaimed
remixes on Katorza and no less than seven original pieces signed to Miles
Dyson’ label PlasmaDigital. Meanwhile he works and composes the
soundtrack for electro circus show ‘Sweatlodge’’ including “Cirkalia”
and “Bassline Circus” tracks released today on Expressillon aside
dancefloor-lifting “Bouncing Pigs”. Fire !

Notes... Following his critically acclaimed genre busting « Kiss My Neck E.P.
» on Expressillon, Prosper joins le Perce-Oreille (Earwig) and shows
once again just why he has got a golden reputation when it comes to
his ability to electrify the crowds!
As usual the guy implements everything to delight your ears and move
your ass at the same time.
He first collaborates with the talented and passionate Flore to make
sure that the ‘‘Fuck the Neighbours’’ track kicks like it should. The
result is full of unyielding energy and exhilarating effects, a Techno
Then comes ‘‘Show me some respect’’, an illegitimate child of
Prodigy for its break punk flavor, and Bootsy Collins for its spiced
electro funk pieces. A massive track to boost the dancefloor !
And for desert, Zap ! Pow ! Die ! - up and coming talent from New
York electronic music scene – provides us with a turbulent remix
which will keep your feet locked to the dancefloor, an infectious smile
plastered firmly across your face.
All those with vertigo don’t worry, you’ll be back on the ground soon!

RUCKSPIN GET NAKED RECORDS RAN013 £3.50
Ranking Records presents Ruckspin’s first solo outing on the label – two
sides of pure quality that go some way to explain why Ruckspin’s DJ
schedule is currently packed with international bookings. The A side,
Jibber, is a 2 step banger laced with slick percussion and fat synth fwabs.
Funky rhodes chords hark back to early garage, and jiggy drum fills lend
the track a wonky, jolting quality that will give the dance floor a

beautifully refreshing sound: kick back and chill or get your shuffle on!

DEEKLINE & APPLE BOTTOM
w. HIGH RANKIN
DUSTIN HULTON & WILL BAILEY
RAT RECORDS RAT033 £3.50
feat. SPORTY-O remixes
Rat Records' latest slice of party shocking heaviness is about to drop, and
it's hotter than a Miami club in August. Label head honcho and resident
bass terrorist Deekline teams up with Florida's Dustin Hulton, a name
which will be familiar to booty freaks from Jersey to Jacksonville, for a
supremely funky electro-flavoured jam that will have asses shaking from
the moment the needle hits the record. Featuring the super-cool vocals of
Sporty-O, who blasts onto the mic with an ode to the joys of curvacious
female posteriors, Apple Bottom is backed with tasty reworkings from
Brighton's boy wonder of bass, High Rankin, currently blowing up with
his ode to the dubious glories of mephedrone, Meow Meow, and fidget
house kingpin Will Bailey.
The former turns in a full-time breakbeat number with trademark
grinding dubstep bottom end and more energy than a shipping container
full of Duracel, while the latter plumps for a jacking, booming booty
house vibe that's perfect for the 4/4 brigade. Hulton himself is well
known for a slew of top quality releases on labels like Against the Grain,
iBreaks, Illeven Eleven and Rat itself, while Deekline has been firing up
the dance music scene like never before in 2010 following a spectacular
12 months which saw the launch of his new label with Tim Healey, Giant
Pussy Records, and victory at the international breakbeat awards,
Breakspoll, where he took best album for his collaboration with Wizard,
Back Up Coming Through.
Now Apple Bottom is ready to fire up bassbins across the globe. Stand
back and watch the bodies flying around the room when this one hits

IBREAKS IBREAKS030 £3.99
This is the second sampler extracted from the new Digital Base album.
This time with two absolute belters, totally orientated to the dancefloor
and with a clear retro breakbeat feel to it.
In these times of fidget and twisted sounds, where we find tones and
tones of robotic music without any kind of soul, this is a breath of fresh
air. Some organic beats with a minimalistic oldschool approach, which
really express what music should be all about.
This is the last single before the album itself which will surely please all
the breakbeat lovers out there.

of booming booty breaks, firing ghetto house and upfront jump up drum
'n' bass designed for heaving block parties and souped-up in-car
soundsystems everywhere. Featuring the unequalled toasting skills of the
legendary Ragga Twins alongside DJs Deekline and Ed Solo, it expertly
blends a hotchpotch of Hot Cakes' cheekiest bootlegs, edits and rerubs
from the past two years into a mix that constitutes the ultimate in party-
Whether you're chilling in your "hi-tops", riding in "cars that go boom",

depending on which corner of the globe you rest your head in, this
blazing selection will be the soundtrack to your summer or a reminder
that warmer days are on their way. Time to grab that ghetto blaster and
