Calcutec - Lorca - Naked Naked

Lorca's second outing on Breach's Naked Naked, and the second Naked Naked release reviewed on this page. Loving your work, chaps. Sam Cassman is on blazing form here. 'Calcutec' sounds simple enough, but half the joy of this synth-loaded, shuffling monster is peeling back the layers. They are many. Similarly, 'Ndlamu' is ostensibly a clattering glut of African-influenced drums and a bassline. But though the palette seems limited, creating something as captivating as this is a feat. It's devastating.

Champion Sound (Dub Phizix Mix) - Sizzla feat Errol Dunkley - Multi Music

On whichever patch of drum & bass you lay your headphones, you're sure to be a fan of Dub Phizix. His heart beats at a syncopated 170 and he has bass flowing through his veins. Dancehall legend Sizzla has commissioned a handful of d&b and dubstep remixes of his 'Champion Sound EP', and Dub Phizix’s lead showcases a dirty downward spiral of a bassline with fitting jungle-style beats, while leaving enough space for Sizzla’s soundclash bars and Errol’s vocals.

Killing Season - Kode9 & Spaceape - Hyperdub

In the wake of Spaceape’s passing, this last EP from the Hyperdub boss and his trusted lyrical wingman serves as a painfully honest but bravely head-on eulogy about his last few months alive and living with illness. Kode provides his usual uncompromising attitude towards production — uncomfortable, distorted minor keys, paranoid frequencies and toxic dystopian soundscapes — for Spaceape’s militant yet prophetic flow.

Carradine - Machinegewehr - Bordello A Parigi

'Abhinada’, the first Machinegewehr record on Bordello was a real anthem, featuring ice maiden vocals. This follow-up is more understated, but doesn’t sacrifice melodies or the sense of drama. The title track is based on crisp 808s and surging, filtered synth sweeps, with the vocals relegated to the background. Meanwhile, ‘Guarding the Frontiers’ goes deeper as Machinegewehr focuses on a pulsing bass and swirling melodies.
