9/10 Brian Staff review, 02 July 2010

We only noticed something new was seriously happening on the electronic landscape when these 12"s starting creeping in around 2004, the more "IDM" and crunchy electro sounds being replaced by harder, more whipcracking breakbeats, and infused with bowel worrying bass. Tough club tunes that carried the dystopian sternness of the Rephlex endorsed grime scene but had consideraply more dancefloor oomph & vicious funk about them. They seemed to be stemming from the Bristol area and an umbrella collective called Multiverse. The two Vex'd 12"s on the tiny Subtext imprint paved the way for something shockingly new...a bass music that sounded like titanium jungle slowed down & made somewhat industrial, yet still begged you to move yr ass, and still made your brain dance like the hottest floor burners. Since then, folks like 30HZ & October have taken this new strain of bass music in many different directions whilst retaining links with the all consuming dubstep phenomenon, most clearly represented here by stunning offerings & saught after tracks from kingpin Pinch's Tectonic stable. This 2xcd compilation is absolutely essential for anyone remotely interested in the last half-decade's electronic music evolution, simple as that. Bristol was always a pioneering city & this is a remarkable compilation of tough sounds, progressive beats & stunning full-frontal sound. Not merely a mopping-up exercise, I think thete's probably much more wonderment in the vaults to have some sequels here as the tunes on this first volume are proper heavyweight classics!
