HIGH FIVE: OCTOBER

The five nights you need to hit in the UK this October!

NOISE IT UP! MUTE!

Mute! was started in 2011 as an illegal rave in Bolton by two lads...
Mirror of the Sun - Clarian - Soft Touch

New label venture from Seth Troxler focusing on music with a more organic bedrock. Clarian’s debut mixes pop, folk and loose, post punk ideas into his polished strain of house music. Ex-Footprintz partner, and Visionquest affiliate, Clarian North follows releases for Turbo and Hot Creations with this pleasantly skewed, three-track EP. Nicely varied content, but my personal favourite is the racing punk-funk of the title track, where Chris Isaak meets the Bush Tetras.

I Believe - Tangle - VANDIT Records

Tangle’s second for VANDIT this year (in and around a mass of other productions for his own Tangled Audio imprint, Lange Recordings and others)… ‘I Believe’ is less snarly 303-driven tech (ala February’s ‘Aquarius EP’) and far more of a get-down-the-front, shirt-pulling euphoric number. Its angelically sung hook will mark it well for the crowd and as the synths go vertical, so, very likely, will the hands.   

'Dawn in Down' - U-More - Cabaret

"Hypnotic groove at its best."

Origins - Pedestrian & Jasperdrum - 2nd Drop Records

Continuing where their 'Kalakuta/Ndizi' release from last year stopped, the duo dig deeper into the Afrocentric palette, mutating further into off-kilter techno riddims. On the flip, Alix Perez destroys the remix of 'Kalakuta' with a dub 'n’ bass rework.
