The dust has settled and the new year is well and truly under way.
The Bass Drop returns for 2022 and we start as we mean to go on, as we introduce 5 of our favourite releases from January.
DUBPLATE PRESSURE – THE CLOAK & DAGGER EP
One of our very favourite UKG labels kick off the new year with an absolute belter. This one comes from Dubplate Pressure AKA Conspiracy Dubz AKA Jason Ward & Jay Ward, who’s name is becoming synonymous in the underground with rough, tough and superbly made UKG productions. This latest slice further cements that, with 4 cuts of magical 4×4 & 2-step goodness. Buy here.
ELLIOTT – TRANSENDENCE EP
Elliott, one half of London-based duo FAFF, debuts on Ritual Poison with an utterly explosive 4 track EP which we have had on repeat since the day we first heard it. Expect 2-step, Breaks & Electro all informed by ridiculously weighty low end. HUGE! Buy here.
RAVETRX – TRIBE SEQUENCE
SHERELLE & Naina’s label Hooversound Recordings has gone from strength to strength since it’s inception in 2020, their latest and 10th release shows they are still on the ascendancy. They introduce debutant RAVETRX who supplies a killer wedge of Jungle & Techno which also features a wicked collab with Mani Festo. Buy here.
