An absolutely ruthless mix from one third of the acclaimed Hessle Audio labelrunners, but also one that's not immediately rewarding. Ben takes the amorphous and genre-less sounds of London's latest and greatest and drops them into a murky ether, shaping them into hinges and linchpins that hold up an even greater sound when all glued together.

Timeless because it has no distinct place, instead alive through the influence of others, therefore comfortable anywhere and everywhere; and instead of being a compilation of loosely affiliated beats fIN instead is a cry of sublime cohesiveness, each track designed to work in perfect unison, to compliment each other.

From purely a musical perspective, the beats have never sounded as urgent and bombastic as they are here, and while Aesop is still infatuated with multisyllabic rhyme schemes it's less of a issue here; instead of saturating the beat with an assortment of absurd pop-culture references and questionable non-sequiturs, Aesop ends up working perfectly in tandem with his background, feeding off the energy rather than simply supplementing it.
In a year that's already seen El-P dominate hip hop, Skelethon shows that the other indie hip hop star has still got plenty to say, and this new album is truly something to get excited about.AFX Chosen LordsAgalloch Pale FolkloreAgalloch Ashes Against the GrainAim Flight 602Air The Virgin SuicidesAlexisonfire AlexisonfireAlias Fever DreamAlice In Chains Jar of FliesAlice In Chains MTV UnpluggedAll That Remains The Fall of IdealsAlpha Lost In A Garden Of Clouds - Part 1Alpha The Sky Is MineAlpha Eleventh TripAmerican Football American FootballAmerican Head Charge The War Of ArtAmetsub Linear CrypticsAmia Venera Landscape The Long ProcessionAmon Amarth Versus the WorldAmon Amarth With Oden on Our SideAmon Amarth Twilight of the Thunder GodAmon Tobin Foley RoomAmon Tobin SupermodifiedAmon Tobin ISAMAmorphis Silent WatersAnacrusis Manic ImpressionsAnalogue Monsta BoomAnathema A Natural DisasterAnathema JudgementAnberlin New SurrenderAnberlin Dark Is The Way, Light Is A PlaceAnd So I Watch You From Afar And So I Watch You From AfarAndres IIAndy C Nightlife 5Andy Stott MercilessAndy Stott Bad LandingAndy Stott Brief Encounter/DrippinAnimals as Leaders Animals as LeadersAnstam Dispel DancesAnstam CreeAntimatter SaviourAphex Twin Selected Ambient Works, Vol. IIAphex Twin DrukqsApparat DJ-Kicks: ApparatAppleblim Dubstep Allstars: Vol.06Appleblim and Shackleton Soundboy PunishmentsAppleblim and Shackleton Soundboy's Bones Get Buried In The Dirt Volume 2Arcade Fire Neon BibleArctic Monkeys Whatever People Say I Am...Arkist Two Night StandArmor For Sleep What To Do When You Are DeadArms and Sleepers Black Paris 86Arms and Sleepers The Organ HeartsArtificial Intelligence Desperado/Movin OnAs Tall As Lions You Can't Take It With YouAsa Bits And PiecesASC Open SpacesASC Nothing Is CertainASC Visible LightASC ImagesASC The Gradient ProjectASC Out Of SyncASC Sci-Files Volume FourASC Programme 01Ash Borer Cold of AgesAsura 360At The Gates Slaughter of the SoulAtmosphere Overcast!Aucan Black RainbowAudio Paper Street/DarkoAudio Fall Back/RustAustin Peralta Endless PlanetsAutechre AmberAutechre QuaristiceAutechre EP Collection 1991-2002Autechre FACT Mix 122Autechre Lego FeetAxel Boman Family VacationAzealia Banks 1991Bad Company UK Rush Hour/BlindBar 9 Distant RootsBar 9 Murda SoundBaroness Yellow and GreenBasement Jaxx RemedyBasement Jaxx The SinglesBasic Channel BCD-2Basic Channel Lyot RmxBasic Channel OctagonBattle Of Mice A Day Of NightsBattles MirroredBe'lakor Stone's ReachBe'lakor Of Breath and BoneBeastie Boys The Sounds Of ScienceBeastie Boys Ill CommunicationBeau Navire LumensBeefcake DreiBehemoth The ApostasyBen Klock OneBen Klock Fabric 66Ben UFO Rinse: 16Beneath No Symbols 001Beneath IllusionsBeneath Duty/TexersBeneath be on some other shit Benga Phaze: OneBersarin Quartett Bersarin QuartettBeth Orton Central ReservationBetween The Buried And Me Between the Buried and MeBetween The Buried And Me Colors_LiveBig Boi Sir Lucious Left FootBig Bud Producer 07Big Strick 100% HustlerBill Callahan Woke On A WhaleheartBill Callahan ApocalypseBilly Woods History Will Absolve MeBiosphere CirqueBiosphere Patashnik 2Biostacis Biostacis RevisitedBjork PostBlack Star Black StarBlack Sun Empire Cruel and UnusualBlack Swan AeternaBlack Tusk Passage Through PurgatoryBlackalicious NiaBlacklisted ...The Beat Goes OnBlawan What You Do With What You HaveBleeding Through DeclarationBloc Party IntimacyBloc Party FourBloc Party finally give us the official sequel to Silent Alarm, and it's a whiskey-soaked, grit in your teeth, fuzzed-out, party til you puke, high-octane speedway of an album.

Biome clearly has a knack for sound and rhythm, and I'm a fan of many of his ideas - I just don't think he has the nous to be able to carry a tune for 5+ minutes, simply because he lacks the kind of variation that's become all too apparent within this resurgence of dungeon-style dubstep. But in a few short years Biome has risen through the ranks, winning the hearts of many and signing with some impressive imprints thanks to his apparently impressive and winning formula.
Spawned's move into the kind of bleakhouse outlooks and cold ambigious techno of the more hermetically inclined European sect is by no means a surprising one though, and Biome is by no means the first dubstep producer to gaze longingly across the waters to Berlin - pretty much all of Scuba's Hotflush roster now considers themselves luminaries of Berghain's sound. What is surprising is how this new "sound" (I say sound because all of Biome's traits and cliches are still here in abundance) has opened up new ways for the producer to follow through on his early promises. This is easily the best Biome has ever sounded, and counting on production alone, this is some next level shizz. If he continues plowing his trade in this new vein, then you can consider me a born again Biome fanBiosphere SubstrataBlindead Autoscopia: Murder In PhazesBliss N Eso Circus In The SkyBlu Mar Ten The Fountain/LunarBlu Mar Ten EvergladesBlu Mar Ten Why Me Why NowBlu Mar Ten Producer 03Bluetech Elementary ParticlesBraiden FACT Mix 52Calibre Makes Me Wonder/Got To Have YouCalibre Bluetop/GeminiCalibre ThoughtlessCalibre Foreign Bodies/Ugly DucklingCalyx Tearing Us Apart/Are You Ready?Carlos Cipa The Monarch And The ViceroyCashmere Cat Wedding BellsCause 4 Concern Luca/AbductionCause 4 Concern I Called U/PsychosisKelela Cut 4 MeLorde Pure HeroineBut Red she's only 16, she'll grow into those shoes!

Firstly, fuck you Beatport for making me have to cue up these mixes myself.
And now for the cover:
1) YO ANDY, WHERE YOUR HAT AT MANE??
2) This looks like a bad Kaskade album
Despite cutting all his wax to the same tempo, and thus negating the need to beatmatch at all, Andy is still one of the greats. The kind of DJ who can knock out just about every commercial jump up drum and bass track from the last year or so (so, pretty much everything off of Ram then) and still knock it clear out of the park.

But realistically, Seven Lies fails to fully capitalize not only on the (justified) hype surrounding Felix Manuel, but also on that delicate "post Burial" atmosphere that Manuel has so eagerly made his own. That gritty "noir-ish" fog that's slung itself so vividly over the London skyline is almost entirely absent here - as if long form has robbed DjRum of his almost shaman-like powers.

And just like every Beastie Boys album that doesn't involve The Dust Brothers or Rick Rubin (that's DJ Double R for you older ones), you hit the middle portion and watch as your expectations crumble away. Once again, the hip hop veterans have somehow fucked everything up as, just like always, everything goes southwards come the dying moments of the album. It's happened before as I've already stated and to be honest we should all be used to this by now. But the first half of the Hot Sauce is just so fuckin' sexy that it makes the downfall so much worse and infinitely more noticeable. It seems that the boys (middle aged men now) just don't have it in them to sustain themselves for a whole album anymore.
But to reiterate the important stuff: Hot Sauce Committee Part 2 is a HUGE step up from To The 5 Boroughs and probably about on par with Hello Nasty.

It relies more heavily on melody than any kind of overt song structure or riffs, which is fine, except that certain songs seem to stall in between the bursts of energy that the group have attempted to perfect for some 10 years now. And when they do follow a pattern, the group seem to lose themselves while attempting to find something to do beyond the standard verse chorus, verse chorus syndrome - it certainly doesn't help that the guitarist relies more on undercurrents than directly leading the songs. Still though, Blindspott (I mean Blacklistt) are back, this time with a real drummer (even though he's now left the band as well), and a DJ who doesn't really do anything except throw a few vinyl scratches into the mix. If I was 14 and this was 10-12 years ago, I'd be happy. Sadly, I'm not, and this is 2013, so this curious time-traveling relic of an album is merely good. Still slightly better than End The Silence though, but the boys are still definitely denying their Hybrid Theory-era Linkin Park obsession and are still firmly entrenched with their love for the Deftones.Blink-182 Dude RanchBliss N Eso Running On AirBlu Mar Ten Global Access/MyriadBlue Sky Black Death GlaciersBoddika SteamBola FyutiBonobo LateNightTales: BonoboBreach and Dark Sky The Click/FalloutBring Me The Horizon SempiternalCalibre Run Around/Need It, Want ItCalibre ValentiaCalyx Calibrate/FeedbackCarbon Based Lifeforms TwentythreeCashmere Cat Mirror MaruCatacomb Wipe Your SpeciesCause 4 Concern Phat Cap/EuthanaisaCause 4 Concern Rumours/YouCause 4 Concern Sky Harbour/TrackerCause 4 Concern Age Of Terror/Scatter BrainThe Album Leaf One Day I'll Be On TimeThe Angelic Process Solipsistic3.1 goodAlien Ant Farm TruANTAlix Perez Annie's SongAlunaGeorge Body MusicAmit Erazer/Snake PitApathy Where's Your Album?!!ARP.101 U/Groove/TrueAudio Bag Of BonesBiome LightBirds Of Tokyo This FireBoxcutter GnosisFucking footwork, fucking everywhere.

And there's certainly nothing on here to topple the greatest moment in music ever; you know, THAT part in 'Tonto'. What you will find however are three band members, all masters in their respective fields, shedding some of the accessibility of their debut album and combining it with the slow progression of their early EPs. A little less technical, (which results in the album having a little more warmth to it) and a little more methodical, Gloss Drop is a worthy follow up. It's just not as energetic as I want it to be. It's a lot more cohesive than Mirrored though, but that's really only because it lacks any true defining moment, nothing really sticks its neck out to be noticed.

This button-down, middle of America repression that she spends far too much time indulging in would have made far more sense served up in the chic glamor of the '50s, a time that Lana oh-so-obviously longs for with her penchant for wallowing in the footsteps of the ghosts that stalk the Hollywood hills.
It's this obsession that ultimately derails her debut LP, where the kitsch and the quirk stumble far beyond being simply cute and instead aches with the wide-eyed pillow talk of a woman who never really bothered to grow up. And if that's the point, then I just don't see the pay off.Orbital WonkyReso TangramRodrigo y Gabriela Area 52Rusko SongsShigeto LineageSwans The SeerThe Abbasi Brothers Something Like NostalgiaThe Agony Scene The Agony SceneThe Angelic Process SighThe Best Pessimist Love Is...The Birthday Massacre VioletThe Birthday Massacre Walking With StrangersThe Black Dahlia Murder UnhallowedThe Black Dahlia Murder MiasmaThe Blank Theory Beyond The Calm Of The CorridorThe Blank Theory Blinding ProcessThe Bled Found in the FloodThe Blood of Heroes RemainThe Blood of Heroes The Waking NightmareThe Bloody Beetroots Christmas Vendetta...Spares Of RomboramaThe Bloody Beetroots and Aston Shuffle DestroyThe Books The Lemon Of PinkUnitz The Drop/Mornin BluesYoungsta Rinse: 142.4 averageAdrenaline Mob OmertaAlix Perez Chroma ChordsBilly Woods Dour CandyBring Me The Horizon Count Your Blessings2.3 averageAbove, Convenience Store!

This thing is produced within a fucking inch of its life. Also, gotta love the strings in the opening track - that's some true Michael Bay-esque cock-tugging there, making me think something epic might actually happen.

Even HorsesDeadmau5 > album title goes here <Feed Me Escape From Electric MountainGatekeeper ExoLinkin Park Living ThingsA Thousand Suns was a terrible album, we all know that. But at least it was LP trying to experiment and have a little fun in the wake of nu-metal's death and the less than warm reception they received when they tried to, y'know "grow up". But while ATS failed because of its experimental nature, at least they were trying to shake things up a bit. This is not a band trying at all; Living Things might not be the group's worst outing but it sure as shit is their most boring outing to date. I mean, it really is fucking boring.
The anthemic choruses that seemed to have been designed as nothing more than to give those in attendance something to do are the words of any oppressed kid scratching his heartbreak on a school desk, held in place by a group of individuals well into their thirties.The electro-pop shlock instrumentation just feels tired and washed-out, and there's just this feeling of laziness surrounding the whole affair; the tired drudgery of a group realizing that it's time for another album. It isn't a return to form (seriously, what are you guys deaf?), but it also isn't even an attempt at it. It's LP, now on the other side of the Great Success Story spiralling ever downwards without the good graces to bow out sensibly. And come on now; you're one of the most commercially-successful "rock" outfits ever to have had the chance to shout on the radio, who are you kidding with this "victimized, victimized, never again victimized" bullshit?

Which is for the most part what Flashbulb's new album ends up sounding like. At time's he indulges himself far beyond anything he's done before (and for an artist almost rivaling Venetian Snares in terms of releases that's no small feat). And when he isn't fully giving into the RIFFS he's strangely subdued.

I've talked before about how the day will eventually come when Skrillex will undoubtedly shoot himself in the foot by experimenting and, in the process, completely alienate his entire core fanbase. And with brostep already on a downwards momentum, it's not surprising to see Moore trying to branch out, what is surprising is the route he's taken, and just who he's attempting to ripoff this time around.
Points for trying (well actually no, not really at all), but you've really gotta laugh at how desperate Moore has really become if this is what he intends to do with his time now. The minimal percussion, the sea of bass rising up underneath, the downtuned and pitch-shifted vocals - oh, and of course the "lonely street at midnight" artwork.... I guess the grammy awards and pop star hookups weren't enough, Skrillex must want some real fans now. And from the looks of things, he's willing to do anything to get themThe Air I Breathe Great Faith In Fools0.5 Ajapai Power/Press The ButtonBenga Chapter II
