The British dubstep producer known as Headhunter helped rewire the current state of bass music with his 2010 single "Footcrab," a jittery homage to Chicago juke music released under his Addison Groove alias. His debut album under that moniker is just as earth-shaking. Ranging from slow-motion trunk-thumpers to fast, furious ghetto house, it merges styles from the African American underground with the U.K.'s jungle and dubstep heritage, highlighting a shared love of bass. Beyond the booming 808s and ribald chants, it's surprisingly immersive, even at its most full-on.
