SCORN – SUPER MANTIS / GRAVEL BED REMIXES (Combat Recordings)
The mighty Mick Harris (Napalm Death / Lull / Quoit / The Weakener / Matera / Painkiller / and many more) on top form as usual. The first 12 has the original version of Gravel Bed plus a remix from Bracket, and an A4 sheet with an tribute to Bracket, who passed away in 2009. The second 12 has remixes from King Cannibal and The Wee DJs. Call it what you will – dubstep, abstract, breakcore...it's some of the best bass-heavy music out there, on one of London's best labels. Proper heavy stuff.

Five tracks of bassy electro on this EP.
THE WEE DJS – GET WEE SOON (SCSI-AV)
THE WEE DJS – WEE FREE (Input-Output Inc)

V/A – SANDWELL DISTRICT SAMPLER SINGLE ONE (Sandwell District)
V/A – SANDWELL DISTRICT SAMPLER SINGLE TWO (Sandwell District)
Single one features Function, Regis & Silent Servant while single two features Female, Regis & Silent Servant. Each record has four tracks of ambient techno, with a bit more of a drone sound to the first single. Excellent stuff from an excellent label.
