Appleblim
Avebury

Appleblim brings it with a nice new three track release on Tempa. Avebury has two fully-fledged club action rollers, propelling you along with solid kick-drums and thick basslines. 'Wandered' however is an odder thing, all about dense and tense atmospherics. 12" released in an edition of 500 copies only....view item »

J:Kenzo & Nomine
Ruffhouse / Blind Man – Om Unit Remixes

This one, released for Record Store Day 2016, sees veteran basshead Om Unit, now proficient in DnB and beyond, re-working two percussive odysseys by rising (risen?) star J:Kenzo and Nomine. You guessed it, skittering breaks collide with deep basses to deliver some serious heavyweight activity on Tempa....view item »

Nomine
Blind Man

Three cuts from Nomine that show off crucial bass-weight knowledge: that when the ingredients are high quality and the juxtapositions wise, a producer only needs a slender handful of elements. Blind Man’s tracks are subtle but super spacious and containing multitudes. Really hypnotic material, limited to 300 12&rd...view item »

Alex Coulton
Gamma Ray Burst

If you like bass tones and kick patterns that mess with your heart rate, and the polyrhythmic percussion of artists such as Joe, Manchester based Alex Coulton should be well known to you already. With releases on Idle Hands, Black Acre, Bloc and this being his fourth, but debut full length, on low-end lords Temp...view item »

Appleblim
Minus Degree

Appleblim gets back to Tempa with a new 12”. Minus Degree starts off with a left-turn: the title track has no beats! Serious! Synths and sub bass create an uneasy soundscape, with no head-nodding of dancing to relieve you. But don’t worry, the EP’s other 2 track will give you a good ti...view item »

Alex Coulton
Ambush / Direction

Alex Coulton provides Tempa with 2 cutting-edge new cuts. Ambush / Direction contains all sorts of elements, from conga drums to fizzing synth-shots and deep, deep sub-bass, allowed to hover in an empty space that gives each sound an extra impact. 12” vinyl on Tempa, released in a limited edition of just 300 copie...view item »

Appleblim & October
Other Side of The Sky

Tempa deliver this new single from October, a crucial stretch of wobbly bass music from a producer with audibly deep roots in the Bristol scene. On the B-side he receives assistance from the legendary Appleblim, who views Other Side Of The Sky from a distance, treating it with a few tricks from the dub ...view item »

Horsepower Productions
Crooks, Crime & Corruption

Alex Coulton
Hand To Hand Combat / Concealed Weapon

Alex Coulton’s new tracks land on the famed Tempa label with a thud. True to their names, the tracks on Hand To Hand / Concealed Weapon do sound as if they are sparring with themselves: a multitude of percussive strikes duck and weave over low bass-growls. Excellent rollers for the dancefloor....view item »

Tempa 100

Tempa has long been an essential outpost for underground UK dance musics, particularly during the exciting early years of dubstep. Tempa 100 throws down some of those classics onto fresh vinyl to celebrate the fact that this is the label’s 100th release. Skream, Benga & Coki, Horsepowe...view item »

Simultaneously immersive and in-your-face with subtle nods to everyone from Mala to Demdike Stare, Inside Nomine really is a trip inside Nomine....view item »

J:Kenzo
Urban Guerilla

Dubstep fundamentalist J:Kenzo returns with a limited (300 copies) four-track demonstration of his minimalist style, packed with sci-fi beats and chromium b-lines which maintain the bottom-heavy traditions of UK bass music while pushing an agenda that is very much his own. Juiceman (Ghost Crew) ...view item »

Trapped

A barren bowl of porridge from Proxima. Well, it seems dubstep still lives on, getting more and more mutated with its continual existence. To absolutely no ones surprise Trapped is loads of wonged-out bass, minimal drum programming and some deep gobbling vocals. More Kode9 & Mala than everyone’s favorite Skril...view item »

The elusive dubstep hypnotist Nomine is about with a new 12" of three new tracks, each containing a flurry of melodies interspersed among memorizing beats and simmering basslines. There are flutes! Nomine is ready for the club as ever, as shown with the final track "Syncopator", but it's probably no club you've ever been to. Thanks for stepping ...view item »

The Tempa Allstars compilation series is dedicated to illuminating the world as to just how far dubstep can go and what avenues it can be pushed down. The label's first Allstars release since 2010, the roster this time is as potent as ever, including one Alex Coulton as well as Innasound, Perverse and Batu, among others.

How Strange

Truth’s fourth 12″ for Tempa, features three tracks of their distinctive, sprawling and dramatic halfstep. While retaining the physical impact and dancefloor impulses that have long defined the genre, Truth tracks carve out colossal rifts within the mix, through which weave vocals, cryptic melodies and fluttering sound effects &ndash...view item »

Total mind musher from J:Kenzo. Ricochet VIP are two hot slices of dread from the Kent bassmonger.

For the title track he trips it own with hectic percussion and jarring stabs of bass and ...view item »

Dubstep Allstars Volume 8 – Mixed by Distance

I loved the first few mixes in the series, Youngsta, Kode 9, etc., but I must admit I've not really kept up with them. This monster mix is loaded with 25 tracks of bass ammunition. I don't think anybody uses turntables anymore to do these mixes which is no big deal really but it's always thrilling listening to a proper DJ on the olde wheels ...view item »

Dubstep heavy weights Skream and Loefah collide for the mighty 'I' and 'Monsoon' remixes. These two producers can seemingly do no wrong at the moment and its clear to see why they have attracted such a cult following. 'Monsoon' begins with gorgeous ancient oriental strings then kicks in with a shifting bassline ...view item »

Interesting looking horse/ donkey type thing on the sleeve of this. Coki one half of Digital Mystikz and produces a lop sided swagger of a tune with the usual dubstep wibbling and shotgun percussion. To save time and effort the B side uses exactly the same drum sound but this time over laden by what sounds like a man blowing down a drainpipe. No...view item »

New Tempa 12" courtesy of COKI who is one half of the Digital Mystikz. It's dubstep by numbers I'm afraid and lacks the impact of their earlier work.

So this job's obviously been set up as dubstep OG Ollie Jones' crack at the big time what with the deluxe packaging (hey, it's called 'Outside the Box' and it comes - in a box!), La Roux dropping by for a brief appearance and the general 'crossover appeal' vibe which permeates the whole thing.

Headhunter
3 Mad Ps/Experience

Headhunter makes a return to Tempa for one of those swish looking die-cut sleeve coloured vinyl records. I was quite into a few of the tracks off of those 12"s, he can certainly can whip a dancefloor groover and '3Mad Ps' is no exception, it's on the techy side of things recalling the likes of Distance.

Time for The Bengalator. I can't say I've ever been a huge fan and I was fully prepared for this to be relatively uninspired and slightly dated given how things have moved on in Dubstepland since his heyday of a few years ago but I'm actually not minding it.

One of the highlights from Headhunter's trilogy on Tempa was the 'Prototype' tune which gets the remix treatment from Modeselektor who up the tempo somewhat and go for a fully stomping club roller with mandatory massive bassline and sharp hi-hats. About mid-way through the b-line gets gnarly. All the elements of the original can clearly be identifi...view item »
