From Portugal come 2 brothers who twist the sounds of Garage and Electronic music to some who call it Karnival Bass. With a grip of releases out and forthcoming releases on Soul Jazz and Iberian Records this duo is dropping some "Bashment" for the heads out there. Check out their forthcoming release on Iberian Records. One not to be missed!

The spirit of '94 is stoked with the fires of dubstep rave and darker garage on the second release from the Night Audio imprint featuring a heavy remix from Sully. Submerse's '94' locks into that post-Burial groove of moody synths and clipped garage rhythms, while Sully adds some jittery Todd Edwards flavour and flips it into an altogether happier beast. Sines' 'Memories Are Here' reminds of SYNKRO's sharpened 2-step patterns with similarly angsty atmospherics, while Littlefoot & Dawntreader's 'Dreamin' Of U' is a tidy 2-step ditty and KingThing's 'Basement Jazz' offers something a little more complex with twisted synthlines and a more abstract flow influenced by tech-step D'n'B. For all 'step crew.

OUT NEXT WEEK
Side 1 Hyetal – “Neon Speech”
Side 2 Hyetal - “Gold or Soul”
Few people can incorporate colour and vibrant energy into music like Hyetal.
With a stream of releases coming out over the last month from Planet Mu and Reduction Records, we are pleased to present Hyetal’s best work to date.
Hyetal – Neon Speech
Reverberating into life with a thunderous sub kick and glistening percussion, Neon Speech is a strong testament to Hyetal's incredible development in the last year as an artist to watch. Intricate melodies infused in to a system-shattering low end, it's a beautiful future shock of a tune. Music at it's finest, regardless of genre. An essential track and one that will never leave the box.
Hyetal – Gold or Soul
Already well known to listeners of Mary Anne Hobbs, Gold Or Soul has a haunting, plaintive quality that is cast in that strange alchemy only Hyetal can conjure up - melodic, yet ruthlessly brutal on bassbins. You won't feel the sub-bass snapping your ribcage in half because you'll be too busy overloading your synapses with the beautiful synth patterns and pads. Anesthesia for the soul.
All vinyl purchasers will be provided with the mastered MP3's free of charge.-SOUL MOTIVE-
Following on from mind-blowing mix sessions earlier this year by Smutlee, Grievous Angel and Shortstuff, the Crazylegs mixtape series is about to return in full effect - perfectly in sync with the buildup to our first birthday party!
Except this time we're doing it a little differently. Crazylegs 004 isn't just one mix, it's FIVE mixes - each comprising roughly 30 minutes of the sickest underground bass music, each mixed by an artist from the amazing birthday party lineup, and all to be released in quick succession in the buildup to the event itself!
First up, a man that needs little introduction. Traditionally one of grime's elite producers, the brilliant host of Rinse.fm's controversial breakfast show and newest signing to Kode 9's dubstep flagship label Hyperdub - we bring to you half an hour of the hardest, most twisted UK funky (some might call it "funkstep") from man like SCRATCHA DVA.
At Scratcha's request, we can't publish the tracklist for this mix, but rest assured it is SICK. Tracks from Proxy and Major Lazer jump out as a real indicator where his sound is going at the moment - cold, mechanical beats and distorted bass stabs expertly blended together with deeper UK sounds to satisfy house heads and bass fiends alike. This is something very different, and very special.
