Untrue

By the time Burial's second album surfaced, his reputation had grown to underground stardom, even if his identity was still a secret.

Zomby
Dedication

He's most definitely got a bit of a magic touch about him this feller. From the finger clicks, gunshot explosions and haunting synths of the opener 'Witch Hunt', you know you're in unique territory. The delectable 'Natalia's Song' is a post-Burial slice of chimerical wonder that sets the stall so high that much of...view item »

Atlas
Solitude EP

Brighton resident Atlas presents his debut EP to the world!

Ikonika
Ikonoklast EP

After what has since become known as 'The Great Terror Danjah Mislabling Disaster of Half-An-Hour Ago' I'm not 100% convinced I'm reviewing the right tracks here but never mind. Oh, there's a voice going 'Ikonoklast'! That's helpful! The lead track doesn't last long but kinda reminds me of Headhunter's stuff around the time of Nomad, except with...view item »

Kode9
Nothing

Believe it or not, this is bass music veteran and Hyperdub boss Kode9’s first ever full-length solo record (having previously made albums with the sadly departed Spaceape). Nothing works in grime and footwork influences along with typically low-slung Kode9 rollers: several tracks ...view item »

Proper low-down darkside heaviness from ace producer Pinch here, enlisting the master grime voice of Riko Dan for this new 12”.

Spokes
Green Eyes EP

Spokes is a busy, playful producer working with shiny variations on core grime elements.

Two generations of dub pioneers combine as Adrian Sherwood meets Pinch on CD and vinyl for On U-Sound.

Slugabed
Sex

Following releases on Ramp and Planet Mu, Slugabed is back on Ninja Tune with some slinky bass infused electrofunk, in parts it recalls some DMX Krew stuff, the bassline is ultra funky and snakes around the tune, playing the lead roll commanding control of hips and asses. The b-line is s...view item »

Cooly G
Wait ‘Til Night

'Wait 'Til Night' is the follow-up to dubstep artist Cooly G's debut record, 'Playin' Me'. In a surprising turn of events, the record sees Cooly G take on an R&B influence, diminishing the eerie, twilit club vibe of her first record and her DJ sets (as evidenced by the dancefloor-ready dubstep she threw in to her Boiler Room set). ...view item »

Tempa Allstars Vol. 07

LV & Josh Idehen
Islands

Production trio and lovers of electronic LV have once more teamed up with singer Joshua Idehen for their new record, 'Islands', after successfully using his voice as a fractured imprint on their highly conceptual debut record, 'Routes'.

Decadubs 3 EP

Always enjoy these Decadubs 12” as they usually showcase the chill as opposed to the studiously paranoid aspects of the Hyperdub personality with volume three being the highlight of the series so far. The big highlight for me is a version of Dean Blunt & Inga Copeland’s (a.k.a ...view item »

Killing Sound
$ixxx Harmonie$ Version

Enigmatic Bristol bods Killing Sound have pinched the name of Kevin Martin's early vehicle for his Bug releases and like that noisy bearded sound system disturber they specialise in a dark, brooding bass music aesthetic. This single-sider is an atmospheric and rhythmic slice of portentous dubbed-out modern post-grime with dark ambient stylings....view item »

Akkord
HTH020

"Minimal but nice". I'm liking this 12" Smoky late night dub-inflected atmospherics. The opening track 'Gravure' is like smoke twirling off a 'funny' cigarette and colliding with a set of windchimes. Really 3AM after-the-party stuff. 'Continuum' get the party going again with some classic drum & bass moves. 'Typeface' is also beat driven &nb...view item »

Jabu
Kwaidan

Carving some out with Jabu. Kwiadan is the latest 7 track record from the Bristol fellas. Taking stock from UK & US beat makers and spoken word artists, these tracks are as introspective as they are down tempo. MC Alex Rendall is spilling his mind out over Amos Childs' blunted rhythms. Out o...view item »

Logos
Cold Mission

Available on CD and clear vinyl LP, the debut album from UK grime up-and-comer Logos is already being spoken of as a modern electronic classic. Spacious and atmospheric, its tracks evoke images of vast spaceship chambers rather than desolate inner cityscapes, yet its roots are demonstrated via the cunning reconfiguration and dec...view item »

Cloud Boat
Model Of You

Cloud Boat is production duo Tom Clarke and Sam Ricketts, making minimalist and reflective dubstep by the way of Burial and Distance.

Matthewdavid
In My World

Featuring truly the most horrible sleeve I’ve seen this week. One of those naked man and child pictures that people sometimes post on facebook to show dad and offspring in perfect natural harmony but omitting to realise that nobody wants to see anyone naked. Particularly a defenceless child. Its on Brainfeeder so I’m excited ...view item »

Virus Syndicate
The Swarm

Sometimes you just need to blast heavy EDM with rappers demonstrating the gamut of British eloquence and accents. That’s what Virus Syndicate saw you needed, and they intended to deliver. The Swarm is only an indication of the havoc they intend to wreak on our ears, innards and dignity, so you better buckle up....view item »

Martyn
The Air Between Words

Pushing you in multiple directions with Martyn. The Air Between Words is the Dutch producer's 2014 offering of his take on all things sonic. Packed with studio wizardry, broken beats, synths for every occasion and a couple of collaborations. Think Four Tet, Mount Kimbie,...view item »

Cloud Boat
Carmine

One of my favourite bands of my youth was called Carmine. But this is not them. Its by Cloud Boat and they do a nice line in sweeping London Grammar/The XX/Daughter style stadium reaching dream-gaze. Aimed at the aftermath of the call centre post work piss up punch up it will have you weeping into your...view item »

Wen
Signals

If not now… Wen? Actually NOW is about right in the case of this rising London producer, who’s been rightly touted as a prime mover in grime’s recent resurgence. His debut for Dusk + Blackdown’s Keysound label is a cutting edge exercise in urban electronic music, distilling ele...view item »

Ekoplekz
Unfidelity

The only box I want to put music in is my record box and yet my role as a writer here at Norman Towers in a sense dictates that I kinda have to, to some extent in order to attempt to articulate what a record sounds like to our readers. Genre references can be useful at times but so much is postmodern these days that it simply defies genre tags a...view item »

Dubblestandart
In Dub

We try to measure with one ruler, but Dubbelstandart makes it hard. Normally we love all sick dub equally, but In Dub is just, well, double as good as usual. Warped electronics and a bass that will make your brains wobble are normally enough, but Dubbelstandart don’t take half measures - and they definitely dub it...view item »

Hatti Vatti
Worship Nothing

It's taken me a couple of listens to get my head around this album, not so much because of what goes on as because of how little happens, but it happens in a very tasteful and listenable way, especially enjoyable whilst cooking dinner I found. Hatti Vatti seems to be re-disturbing the soil under which the short-lived post-driftstep movement of a...view item »

Guido
Moods of Future Joy

Bristol's vast ocean of dubstep music throws another wave our way with Gudio, who's on his second record at this point. Moods of Future Joy follows-up the intricate Anieda, a full-bodied and difficult-to-categorise record that brought out the "post-dubstep" fangs. This one continues to show ...view item »

Bass Clef
Stenaline Metranil Solar Flare (Bass Clef Remix / Pev Remix)

Deliciously titled single from Bass Clef. This 12” presents two different remixes of Strenaline Metranil Solar Flare (a track from Clef’s 2012 Reeling Skullways album), one by the man himself, and one Peverelist, boss of the Punch Drunk label that is releasing this ...view item »

Ikonika
Aerotropolis

We’ve just been listening to a promo of the new Jessy Lanza album on Hyperdub in the office, and to be honest I was really enjoying it and it seemed a shame to turn it off halfway through but there’s some reviews that need writing. Thankfully though, one of those is thi...view item »

Bandshell
Caustic View

Opening track on this 12” by Bandshell on Mute imprint Liberation Technologies annoys the hell out of me but if you like thumping bass oriented dance breaks then this is the thing for you, second track ‘Perc’ is a little more interesting...view item »
