187 - M.O.P - Nature Sounds

Another old duo return but unlike Camp Lo, Lil Fame and Billy Danze stick with what they know has worked in the past and emerge better because of it. Exec-produced by Premo, '187' is produced by Lil Fame's production alter-ego Fizzy Womack and threads a whole load of shouting (cos let's face it M.O.P have always been ACE shouters) under a brutally simple loop from Tears For Fears' 'Head Over Heels'. Not a lot else to it, but mygod it works a treat, retains even with their age a real sense of menace and hooliganism that puts a big sloppy snarl on your face. The EP this comes from, the soon-come 'Street Certified' drops on Halloween and should shit you up all the way till Xmas. Welcome back nutters. 

Saleh - Dauwd - Kompakt

Dauwd's been a buy-on-sight artist for this page for some time now, and this second excursion on Cologne's eminent Kompakt — a label which arguably feels more like his spiritual home than Michigan's equally illustrious Ghostly International, which has also released his work — is perfectly pitched. Neither title track 'Saleh' or 'Moiety' will drag you in instantly, but once they do and you realise the craft that's gone into this pair of unctuous delights — 'Moiety' in particular — you'll be a slave to them. Go on, stick it on again.

The Unknown Album Sampler - Cato - Sin City Recordings

An eight-track sampler from Cato’s forthcoming album on Hatcha and N-Type’s Sin City label, and not a grotter in sight. Cato brings a deft collection of influences and styles to bear, from the spacious and delicate soul leanings of ‘Sometimes’ and ‘Soul Electronic’, to the yard style pressure of ‘Peng VIP’ feat Flowdan & Riko. With hits of hardcore stylings on ‘Ghetto Funk’ and classic dubstep angles on ‘11th Hour’, there is real breadth and class here. The album promises to be a warm, inviting and vibsin’ place to be, so step into the unknown and enjoy.

500: Episode One - Caspa - Dub Police

The latest project from Dub Police’s head honcho is a tight, focused four-track EP of beefy dubstep animosity. ‘Stand Your Ground’ kicks things off like a pair of rabid pitbulls on a tight leash — you can feel the aggression being purposefully restrained. ‘Derek’ and the other two tracks all follow in a similar vein — malevolent intent abounds, but held just in check. After six years, it’s good to hear a more considered and crafted approach to the tougher side of the dubstep sound.
