Lil Silva – Club Constructions Vol.2 (Night Slugs) A couple of months ago Night Slugs announced they were embarking on a series of 12's that were purported to be aimed squarely at the dancefloor, which is an interesting statement to make as it suggests that label owners Bok Bok and L-Vis 1990 have decided that their innovative imprint perhaps lacked a little dance floor applicability. Originally for Night Slugs this wouldn't have particularly been an issue as they were one of a few labels that were pioneering what we now call bass music, however since those innovative first releases the scene has morphed quite considerably, with artists now ...

L-Vis 1990 – Lost In Love Feat. Javeon McCarthy "Lost In Love" is the first single to be taken from L-Vis 1990's forthcoming debut album, Neon Dreams. Lost In Love is a shimmering vocal House track that makes no attempt to ease in fans of his more underground gritty sound. For many this new direction may prove too much too handle, however L-Vis 1990 is not trying to fool anyone and Lost in Love is clear indication of what to expect from the full LP. However if the thought of shimmering vocal house makes your toes curl, dont worry as the single package includes a Club Mix and a Nightslugs Allstars Dub Mix. Released - September 26th ...

L-VIS 1990 – Neon Dreams (Debut Album) L-Vis 1990 is probably best known for his forward thinking bass sounds and innovative Night Slugs label which he runs with label mate Bok Bok. Since Night Slugs was launched in 2008 L-Vis 1990 and crew have been hailed as significant contributors to the rapidly emerging bass sound, and of all those involved at Night Slugs it's fair to say that L-Vis 1990 has been arguably the stronger and more prolific producer, and therefore making a full length record seems like a natural next step. So what to expect? Well, we were lucky enough to get a 5 track preview a few months back and we were ... Read more / Preview track

Egyptrixx – Bible Eyes (Album Review) 2010 proved to be a good year for thoughtful electronica, with Four Tet, Caribou, Gold Panda and a few others littering a host of respected 'Best Of' lists. 2011's first contender comes in the form of Egyptrixx's debut. Bible Eyes - Released March 7th (Night Slugs) Bible Eyes provides ten tracks of complete restraint. Each centred on an abstract synthesiser that pulses and oscillates in the fore. Surrounding these squirming lead lines is a myriad of tiny, taps, hits and scrapes that pop and patter in every possible direction. Egyptrixx's use of space and sound is so expert that it ...
