Lake Haze characterises the new direction perfectly and showcases the full spectrum of frequencies to be encapsulated in future releases.

Having established herself as one of Bristol’s most exciting new faces on the scene, local selector Yushh has turned her attention to the groundswell of talent the city has to offer when it comes to the cross-section of bass music with her new label project, Pressure Dome.
Tied together by syncopated rhythms and broken beats, each producer featured brings their own style, tempo and atmosphere. The first release from this new imprint provides a range and depth that reflects Bristol’s musical versatility, from newcomer Syz whose contribution follows highly praised releases on Only Ruins and Brotherhood Sound System, to some of the city’s newest party starters to rise through the ranks.
The journey begins with Syz and Yushh, both showcasing intricate percussion and delicate melodies that roll with energy over subby baselines. On the flip, Mish brings a chugged out, wobbly techno treasure with hints of dancehall rhythms. Mulengasound then bringing the atmosphere and space, perfect for that warm-up transition and Balouu’s playful Egyptian melodies and strong, Arabesque synth-lines close the party.
All five tracks ooze individuality, yet subtly tie together with influences and sounds of a city that naturally nurtures progressive experimentalism. Pressure Dome’s offering is a fine example of burgeoning collective, with like-minded producers set on an uncompromising approach to the broken beat.

Steve Spacek aka Blackpocket is a relentless creative. It's truly woven into the fabric of his soul, create by any means necessary.
The debut Blackpocket project was also the Debut release on Exit Records, a truly family affair as Steve is the older brother of dBridge. The album acted as a signal of what was to come for the groundbreaking label & artist. Any expectation of tempos and sound pallets were treated with a respectful disregard in order to reach another place of design.
Blackpocket now gives us his second offering- ALAYLY, seven tracks that remind us who is the king of electronic soul music, comfortably existing in a space that is hard to deny or indeed replicate.
This is a project fully created via iOS apps. It's here where we will remind you of the relentless creative, one who creates by any means necessary. These iOS tools serve a very direct purpose- they enable Steve to create where ever he is and in turn, he is able to bring life & soul to the digital landscape.
ALALY is another triumph for Blackpocket AKA Steve Spacek and Exit Records.

DJ Haram is a producer & DJ who distinctively ties her New Jersey musical history with more recent involvement in the Philadelphia DIY noise scene, whilst paying homage to her Middle Eastern roots. A close affiliate of New York's Discwoman collective, she is also one half of 700 Bliss with rapper & poet Moor Mother, who features on this EP. Haram’s non-traditional understanding of Islam, paired with a nuanced perspective on folk tradition and mythology, underpins the EP, bringing fantasy and colour to this in-between place. On opener ‘No Idol’, a darbuka rhythm pairs with offbeat claps around a dark synth and a contrasting airy flute melody, illustrating the theme of duality running through the music. The melodies of ‘No Idol’ are revisited in the final track remix, sped up with a classic Baltimore club beat and energetic bedsprings samples.‘Interlude’ is a combination of the sounds and patterns from each song. ‘Gemini Rising's synth is reminiscent of John Carpenter, paired with adarbuka rhythm and war drums that transmit a religious sci -fi horror aesthetic. ‘Body Count’ is propelled by Jersey Club kicks with a distorted drum crunch and ticking rim shot in triplets, and an ethereal melody. ‘Grace (K.O.D.)’ has menacing cinematic stabs that feel like acid raining on the scattered percussion. On the 700 Bliss track ‘Candle Light’, Moor Mother's distorted and doubled up vocal chorus evokes a frantic yet solemn energy as she speaks on themes of life and death.‘Grace’ is an EP constructed through deep feeling, transmitting vital dancefloor energy. It’s music is versatile, imbued with a strong will, personality, and colour.

Following up on his "I Am Mensch" record released on Mechatronica last year, Zeta Reticula takes the listener on a light-speed journey from the earliest organic compounds, past the dazzling formation formation of life, between orbiting double stars - and finally into the unknown, stretching obscurely far-reaching parsec units.

7 years of silence. 7 years waiting. The master of dark simplicity: beat, bass, drift, drone - Mick Harris has re-engaged with his longest running, primary artist identity, SCORN. His first salvo upon return, the “Feather” EP is anything but light. It is the darkest possible bass-weight, a vortex of low frequency into which all light is subsumed. The 3 entirely separate versions of the title track plumb unknown depths with harried atmospheres, reminiscent of Scorn’s earlier days, a time before bass music became a popular movement and Harris was the absolute pioneer in the genre. Bass weight, dub production technique with multiple delay channels, time and phrase morphology and erupting samples keep all 3 variations differing as they decompose. The final track tells a truth of life: “Whatever Is Touched Turns”; and lays it out with pounding multiple bass-lines and the most punishing kick drum in any Scorn track ever. Feather is a return to arms for the one referred to as the Dark Lord of Bass. Scorn lives again. All tracks Created and Mixed by MJ Harris in the Lad’s Old Room B14.
