Caspa is back on it with the well, venomous beats of ‘Venom’ That’s right, its time for your bass poison courtesy of Caspa on the Sub Soldiers imprint. with an intro like Jaws swimming up to the beach, ‘Venom’ is a deadly (sic) blend of Grime & Bass. The bassline grabs you by the scruff of the neck and shakes you around vigorously. The beats propel forward in minimalist but incredibly effective fashion. You don’t need the remedy, you need this poison, you need ‘venom’

qebrµs’ new EP on Love Love Records has already received support from none other than the Aphex Twin

The tracks on this eclectic EP have no name, just symbols. Perhaps symbolic of the non-linear, fascinating sounds that owe much to the work of Aphex Twin & Squarepusher. It’s very hard to describe what’s on offer here musically but we love it!!! A bit of Lo-Fi, industrial, shades of experimental techno and psychedelia. The glitchy broken beats on this EP by qebrµs are a delight!!!

JH Nickel ‘Act Up/Shade’. 2 great ways to finish up 2016 for premier UK Bass House label, Night Shift Sound

Both ‘Act Up and ‘Shade’ are firmly rooted in the Grime/Bass/House sound with big brazen stabs, Grime MC style vocals and chunky beats. ‘Act Up’ leans more towards a clean, crisp Tech House sound with huge wobbling subs.

‘Act Up’ leans more towards a clean, crisp Tech House sound with huge wobbling subs.

‘Shade’ is a suitably tough companion to ‘Act Up’ with lazer charged synths and a menacing refrain. Subtle allusions to the mid 00’s Niche sound and even earlier UKG sound can be discerned on this blazing rhythm.

So there’s your bass fix well and truly fixed!!!
