Bizzy B continues his descent into the darkside with 4 brand new tracks on a double 10" for Planet Mu. 'Jah Works' devastates with its heavy sub bass depth charges and savage amen, lightened up with a dose of sweet dub vocals before crashing back in with Bizzy's famous edits and some choice rave stabs. 'Sound Test' surprises us with a little Soca guitar riff, while 'Flava' brings some G-funk synth into the equation. Everyone's buzzing about the Mu's schedule for 2006 - the fun starts here.

I never tire of Amen break variations, artists still continue to eek out new ways of using this tried and tested breakbeat. Two of the most forward-thinking scientists are Remarc and Bizzy B. Both have found a home on the Planet Mu label and the latter impresses with this fifth instalment in the 'Science' series. All the tracks follow the same narrative; steady breaks eventually break down into tighter edits as melodies and bass close in. Supreme

So who is Kyler? Surprisingly, this purveyor of mellow, playful sampledelica and fine, pastoral electronica is none-other than Henry Collins, aka Gabba-Jungle lunatic Shitmat. "Pur Cosy Tales" is the first offering from this alter-ego, and jolly nice it is too. I actually received an early draft of this album well over a year ago (the track "Grand Coulee Dam" featured on GutterFM back in June) and, although the tracklist has altered quite a bit since then, it's still
Pur Cosy Tales consists of thirty-two songs that stretch and tingle for a little more than an hour. Most pieces are short, snippets seemingly cut from a larger cloth. The press release indicates that Kyler is an alternative moniker for the delectably christened Shitmat. It’s quickly evident that Pur Cosy Tales is less abrasive and somewhat more contemplative than Shitmat’s standard fare. Which is not to say that this is happy-valley ambient, there’s far too
