Addison Groove returns to Modeselektor’s 50 Weapons imprint with his second album Addison Groove presents James Grieve, two years after the release of his debut Transistor Rhythm. While the producer’s first full length took its cues principally from Chicago Juke, his second effort has a distinctly Bristolian edge, betraying a pervasive jungle influence throughout. This release from one of UK bass music’s most enduring figureheads is bound to be vital listening for those tapped in to the currents of British club culture.
London producer Drumtalk debuts on Huntley’s & Palmers with an EP of direct, tribal-inspired tracks. First up ‘Time’ unfolds over a simple yet effective pots and pans style beat before slowly adding extra layers of drum patterns, a seething synth chords and a soulful vocal into the mix for a guaranteed dance floor reaction. On the other side, ‘Magnetic’ is a bouncy workout of rubbery bass lines and fuzzed synth stabs that shows off the producers interesting use of different percussive elements.

Soul Jazz Records present us with a new collection of a hugely funky and intriguing material entitled ‘Inner City Beat: Detective Themes, Spy Music and Imaginary Thrillers 1967 – 1977’. Each piece on offer has been compiled from British library music companies who regularly provide to television and film around the world with sounds ranging from thick, bass-heavy jazz jams to infectious, stick-in-your-head theme music. Dave Richmond sees his stalking ‘Heavy Lead’ included along with the more upbeat and racy ‘Gotta Getaway’. Accompanying the authentic selection of music is a 60-page graphic novel from the notorious 1960s writer Mark ‘Badly’ Antringham that tackles a corrupt and violent 1960’s East London.
Aperture have put together something very special for their latest release: London producer Nigel Truswell, Oberman Knocks, releases 'Dilankex', a thudding, frayed monolith of a track backed by a seventeen minute remix from Warp artists Autechre. The original is a magnetic piece of hulking bass and clawing electronics that sounds like it could move mountains. Autechre's remix though completely reconfigures the original, drawing it out into a fractured monster of a track, tangled hard rhythms dissolving into desolate ambience full of tense energy. <br><br> <b>Upfront Exclusive Digital</b> <br><br>
