Pinch
Walking With Shadows / AHH FFF SSS

Pinch here with some classic fare for Swamp81 offshoot 81. A-side ‘Walking With Shadows’ is a slow reveal - skulking in with ghostly atmospherics and a needling percussion line, it soon blooms into the kind of meditative post-techno banger that Loefah’s label h...view item »


Chunky
Threats EP

Notoriously brief UK techno label Swamp81 put out another 12 from MC Chunky (Hank Del Chunkus to his friends) under their sublabel 81. Didn't even realise swamp needed a sublabel. This time round things get nice and shuffly with garage and grime elements, basslines leaning towards that throbbing dubstep sound and if that wasn't ...view item »

Mickey Pearce
Michael

Mickey Pearce (aka Shortstuff's Richard Attley)'s debut album is a mixed affair. Whilst a lot of the tracks here inhabit the familiar post dubstep landscape we would expect them to, there are others which veer downbeat, some optimistically and upliftingly so, and others with a dark kind of edge. Expect the unexpected....view item »


FaltyDL
Mean Streets Part 3

FaltyDL has had his slick productions released on Ninja Tune, Planet Mu, 50Weapons, Ramp AND Hemplock. Returning to Swamp81 to continue his Mean Streets series he experiments with lush deep garage rhythms, moving from the dark, soulful and brooding, out to the uplifting and playful. For fans of Lone, ...view item »

Benny Ill
Swamp91

Two very fine new-jungle heavy rollers from Benny III here. The two different takes on Swamp91 (released on the Swamp81 label of course) presented here both duck and weave fragments of vocal and synth samples around slickly manipulated Amen breaks, building up a frantic dancefloor frenzy. 180g 12” vinyl....view item »

Zed Bias & Paleman
Furrball / Boiler

The latest emission from Loefah’s Swamp 81 stable is a plate from oldskool garage don Zed Bias & Paleman. On the topside is ‘Furrball’ a quirky techno/house hybrid with rubbery acidic build-up that eventually climaxes with a cheeky fadeout and then back in ...view item »

Zed Bias
Boss

Dubstep and garage pioneer Zed Bias is regarded as one of the most important artists in what is these days termed "bass music" and has influenced the likes of Skream, Benga, Martyn and Disclosure. With that on his CV it's no wonder that this record has already been hailed as a classic. Inspired by Chicago house and Detroit techno, the...view item »

Kryptic Minds
One Of Us

This new release on the Swamp 81 label, fronted by dubstep producer and DJ Loefah, comes from Kryptic Minds. 'One Of Us' shows off their tonally dark brand of dubstep and drum 'n' bass, blending these atmospheres together with clear and precisely executed production values that present Kryptic Minds' sound as best as possible....view item »

Chunky
The Chunky EP

This record just begged to be reviewed with that sleeve! Look at that kid, he is so cute! I’m assuming that’s our MC Chunky as a child, he’s a popular personality from Loefah&rs...view item »

Boddika & Joy Orbison
Swims

I'm gonna start a skinhead punk band called Oi! Orbison doing caveman-esque guttural covers of Joy Orbison future rave hits. If you nick my idea I'm going to come round with all my braces-and-boots loving mates and kick your teeth in and steal your granny to work in our local WMC making p...view item »

Funkbias
Last Forever / Heaven Sent

One of thee most consistent labels in bass music (and beyond) drops a super funker from Zed Bias and new fellow Funk Butcher. The A side is a fairly lean drum track with deep fried hi-hats and electrofunk/vocodered vocal. This one will blend in well in ...view item »

Skream
Repercussions Of A Razor Blade

Dubstep and disco producer Skream brings forth a new 12", 'Repercussions Of A Razor Blade' courtesy of Swamp 81. For the record's sophomore release, he goes to a dark, dreary place, shrinking into minimalist sounds and showing off a surprising drone influence, complemented with some sneering snare work. ...view item »

FaltyDL
Power

Falty DL (a.k.a Drew Lustman) hits us with a two newies on Swamp 81. Can’t say I’m a big fan and I recall ‘Hardcourage’ being particularly dad sounding. ‘Huff & Puff Bruk’ is a smoky jazz meets breakbeat affair making use of trumpet samples and subtle beat programming. It’s a crisp, modern outing tha...view item »

Ramadanman
Fall Short / Work Them

A stormer from Ramadanman which takes huge cues from the Chicago footwork scene but creates a groove for non-footworkers to rave to. Both tracks are solid and cement both the producer and Swamp 81 as prime players in the current wave of UK bass music....view item »

Boddika
Acid Jackson

He's bloody good this Boddika fellow you know. His signature sound is a kind of bass-heavy electro-tech funk designed to appeal to both the breaks crowd, the post-dubsteppers and loads of clubber types in-between. 'Acid Jackson' is a really catchy rhythmic downtown stroller with ace synth ...view item »

Mickey Pearce
Don’t Ask, Don’t Get

Shortstuff. Oi! Don't be so rude I'm between 5' 6" and 5' 7" I'll have you know!! Well, I'm just being silly ain't I? This is the moniker Mr. Pearce once went under for his more wobbly dubsteppery outings. He's now indulging in that tight electro/house/garage hybrid sound that has wrapped it's delectable booty shaking tendrils around ...view item »

Artist unknown
Sicko Cell / Knock Knock

Nice play on words, I see what they've done there. So people have been going nuts about this one on the forums and there has been much speculation as to who the artist is, it does recall some of the recent stuff by Addison Groove but really I couldn't give a shit. The A-side is based a round a pitched down vocal 'I'm The Information/Cocaine ...view item »

Addison Groove
Work It / Sexual

This is the alias of headhunter and handling the sleeve I'm noticing a theme. The first Addison Groove sleeve artwork was a tribute to Chicago's Trax label and the tunes were heavily Chicago influenced. This beast is a homage to Detroit's Underground Resistance and the cuts are lean electro numbers inspired by the D. Work it builds a sinister gr...view item »

FaltyDL
Mean Streets Pt.1

Another classy slab o' wax from Loefah's always-on-the-money Swamp 81 imprint. You just cannot pin this label down! One minute it's footworking bass music from Addission G / Ramadanman and then ultra-slow heavy, proper dubstep from Pinch, deep dark shit from Kriminal Minds and now this super-funky belter from the NYC man who also drops an album ...view item »

The Bug
Run Ft. Flowdan

Here's an amazing surprise, three brand new Bug tracks from Big Kev Martin! London Zoo is one of my favourite LPs from the past few years so it's pleasing that lead track 'Run' keeps up the quality.. It's got eveything you want from a Bug production; dark, paranoid, industrial dancehall with righteous mic work from Flow Dan, one of his regulars....view item »
