This is the OG sound developed by BBE and Wiley accelerated with incredible vision, imagination and tenacity; bending your ear to the preternaturally observant, incisive lyrics of 17 year old MC, Novelist, while Mumdance's ballistic, collaged production slaps up from every angle. Both the title track and 'Shook' set the levels head-high for 2015, outmaneuvering all comers at every swerve, each near miss with a bus and in every rave-eyed bass stab. This is what music needs to sound like in 2015.

GOLDIE / SOURCE DIRECT - Dark Metal (Source Direct Remix) / Stonekiller (Hokusai Remix) [2015 Remasters], Razors Edge
2015 remasters and alternative mixes of Source Direct's seminal '97 session for Metalheadz's Razor's Edge series. Both certified classics in the jungle hall of fame, the originals marked a pinnacle of breakbeat science which have rarely, if ever been bettered for technical dexterity and body-wrecking effect. Their mix of Goldie/Rufige Kru's 'Dark Metal' remains one of the darkest D&B tracks ever, now sounding even heavier thanks to the remaster. But the real gold for any heads will be Jim SD's brand new Hokusai render of 'Stonekiller', which, if we're honest, sounds practically identical to the pivotal original, which can't be a bad thing. Essential gear.

Shifted follows up his 'Under a Single Banner' LP for Bed Of Nails. Part 1 of a twin 12" set, 'Arrangements in Monochrome' yields four mechanically worn-down grooves seeping from the oily, emulsifying drones of 'You're a Replacement' to the thrumming grey techno missile 'Arrangement In Monochrome I' and over to the viscous momentum of '6ft of Silence' or the ventilation shaft extrusion, 'The Velvet Rope'.

Shifted takes a quieter, creepier tack towards cinematic industrial scapes and pulsing rhythms on 'Part 2' of his 'Arrangements in Monochrome' session. Dangerously opiated and out-of-reach, his sound here marks a subtle step forward/away in terms of sound design, and a more noxious reduction of his signature palette, guiding us from lightless drone and drizzle in 'The Incoherent' to urgently scan ocean floor depths in 'Arrangement In Monochrome II' and the bleakly gorgeous 'Second Wash', while 'Entartung' gets tangled in a flux of rusty aquatic rhythm and 'Lenine' leaves us stranded in alien space station atmospheres.

**10" mastered and cut from 1/4" tape by Lewis at Stardelta. Edition of 300** Some make-your-own-pizza business from Fxck Punk aka APE (Vessel) and Chester Giles paying dues to their local 24-hour Asda (Walmart for Americans) in Bedminster, Bristol. Obfuscated yet direct-to-the-dome, the session combines off-the-nut poetry from Giles with some of Vessel's most burned and turnt production. Bowling red-eyed and lo-fi from industrially reclaimed grime, 'Spud-U-Like' to mucky pockets of stress-testing noise and lyrics about sniffing glue on 'Trash And Reapy', the session takes an … Read more

Cat. Number: LDN052

Delinquent, deliquescent grime from Damu on return to Keysound. M.I.A. since 2013, his 'Holed In The Hovel' session reveals an even shinier chassis and curdled silicon aesthetic, in chromatic flux somewhere between SOPHIE and PC Music or the most lucent Her Records releases. 'iPolice' starts up like some Matrix sentinel, all laser scanning bleeps and wavey synths with a sci-fi agenda, while 'Whirlybird' rolls out like a mutant mix of Fis-t's 'Night Hunter'. At his maddest, 'Holed Up In The Hovel' wields wild claps and meter-melted Ballroom beats, and 'No Pain, No Gain' gives up frantic, frothing grime patterns infected with some mad computer virus.

Dasha Rush fully explores her latent ambient side with 'Sleepstep', her debut suite of tech-nocturnes for Raster Noton. It's quite a departure from her sleek, signature club sound, largely leaving the big kicks at home and heading towards dark, brooding scapes and skeletal rhythms perfused with her own vocals and icy-fingered melodies. The ambient/sound design aspect is a constant throughout Dasha's oeuvre, whether in the drone elements or expansive club track intros like LADA's 'Indust' or in her work for Fullpanda sub-label, Hunger To Create.

Backed up by a monstrous Regis remix, Stave's taking no prisoners on this one for Repitch. Jonathan Krohn, the Chicagoan also behind Male and Talker (with Karl Meier), sets the tone with a gravelly slammer called 'Hardened Chord' which Regis promptly kicks the fxxk out of in his nastiest, noisiest remix for quite some time. B-side, Stave gets his rocks off on a thoroughly unpleasant, thundering 'Circle Pit' assault and the cloven hoofed swarm of 'Paid Jazz'. Have mercy on the children, we beseech thee…

'Expressions' is the lush 2nd album from Edinburgh's Linkwood on Firecracker. It's the sort of album you can spend a whole evening, or equally a whole lifetime with, perfectly crafted and sequenced for immersed listening and also to be broken down into DJ components - of which there are some super strong moments in the hypnotic Detroit disco-tech of 'Object', the sophisticate house stride of 'Expressions', and a sublime dub chord lather in 'Love Lost' to close. From Firecracker's own malty sales notes: "Ah, yes! Finally some real flavours to sink our teeth into. The nose is truly a work of art. F… Read more

Zombi's Steve Moore takes a celestial spin on Ghost Box's 'Other Voices' series. The space cadet who never graduated presents two earthbound visions of the cosmos painted in analogue synth, Hammond organ and vintage string machine; cutting the most melancholic figure across the sky with 'The Moon Occults Saturn at Dawn' and with more inquisitive, optimistic effect in the slow burning lushness of 'Val Sans Retuor'.

Jon Brooks meets Friendly Fires as The Pattern Forms for Ghost Box's 'Other Voices' series. FF's Edward MacFarlane lends his finest indie dream-pop coos and harmonised gasps to a creamy pastoral scene of flighty synths and strummed strings in 'Fluchtwege' - it's very well accomplished but the Panda Bear impersonations are perhaps a little cloying. Thankfull his bandmate Ed Gibson replaces him with an instrumental contribution to the airborne waltz of 'The Sacrifice', alongside Brooks' signature vintage zesthetics and piano provided by Will Dutta.

Nervy electro from the Hamburg native, taken from her upcoming 2nd EP for Werkdiscs / Ninja Tune. Much slinkier, crisper than her soggy acid bangers, 'The First Time He Thought, He Died ' is a shivering, skeletal piece of electro with brooding Bunker-style basslines and creepy gothic tronix.
