It’s the EP we’ve been waiting for. Three tracks of fresh fire from two of UK bass music’s most infamous partnerships: Caspa & Rusko. This one’s been bubbling since they announced their reunion last Autumn.
As they’ve expressed in interviews, their reunion is nothing but a vibe thing, a fun thing and a long game thing. Everything about this project is real and done on their own terms and rules as they make the music they want to make, play the shows they want to play and deliver the releases when they want to. Like now...
Let get one thing straight; 2015 was a big year for Potential Badboy. His game changing long player secured over 20 plays from Mistajam on BBC 1 Xtra, including his Jam Hot track of the week, as well as a broad range of support and love from DJ Hype on Kiss FM, Ras Kwame on Capital, Toddla T on Radio 1, this list goes on and we’ve not even discussed the love Potential got from his peers.
Reach LDN & D'SILVA return for their second outing, the massive double A-side EP 'Bass Telescope' & 'On The Wall' Ft. Richard Clarke
'Bass Telescope' is an epic roller that will bruck up any sound system with low slung, filthy basslines and enough tech to keep even the most avid chin stroker massaging the lower regions of his face. This one has dance floor destroyer written all over it.
This tune's already been an anthem twice over and now it's back for the hat-trick. First, it earned its stripes as a general-purpose weapons-grade rave-killing dubplate in the sets of top echelon selectors. Then, in 2007, it dropped on general release, original on the A-side and VIP on the flip, taking out a whole new wave of parties with the fallout. And now it's time for round three, in the form of a transatlantic team-up between Technique Recordings and Human Imprint.
Every now and then two musical geniuses lock themselves away in a studio, deprive themselves of the outside world and knock their heads together to produce a magical musical moment. This is the story of the Brookes Brothers and Danny Byrd. Having previously collaborated together on ‘Gold Rush’, ‘Get On It’, and ‘Paperchase’, the Brookes Brothers and Danny Byrd are no stranger to each other.
With their debut LP City Of Gold still resonating in the clubs and smashing up dance floors across the globe, The Prototypes waste no time in unleashing a brand new banger for your speakers: Hypercube.
Having already been made a firm favourite thanks to Friction opening his live Radio 1 Essential Mix at Glastonbury early this year in the UK, Hypercube is full of attitude and weighs heavy on the low end, all wrapped up in a mass of energy big enough to shatter the fourth dimension.
“Not only is Chris (PBB) a great friend, he was an early mentor and a huge influence in how I make music to this day. I wouldn't be doing this without his early input.” - Shy Fx

Since day one Chris has been a pioneer of Jungle, under various aliases, in more projects than you know, always favouring pushing musical creativity over chasing the limelight.
Dubstep legend Caspa's new album 500 was released last month on his own Dub Police and is widely considered a return to form for the tearout originator. It's got all the grinding churn you'd hope to hear from the West Londoner, but also finds him foraying into new sonic territory.
His remix of "The Day is My Enemy" is a stylistic adventure for Caspa, who took the remix as a challenge to push himself even further creatively
Drumsound and Bassline Smith - 'Big'
