The best parties around this November

CALL OF THE WILD

Disclosure’s Wild Life Detroit festival bridges generations of dance music...
In and Out of Love Pt. 2 - Holly Johnson - Pleasuredome

Following the glorious, posthumous versions of ‘Follow Your Heart’ by Frankie Knuckles’ Director’s Cut, the mood this time simmers with dreamy Balearic mixes from Douze and Clique.

Pandore - Idioma - Marketing Music

Icy cool electronics from this shadowy presence, Idioma, making a second contribution to Tim Paris’ excellent Marketing Music label. Appearing way back in 2009 with the delicate ‘Landscapes’, Idioma’s return maps out more seductive, woozy synth lines for remixers Tim Paris and Freude Am Tanzen’s Ruede Hagelstein to remix — both working brilliantly odd new-wave and slick proto-techno styles.  

Famished - Has-Lo & Castle - Mello Music Group

Alongside CJ Fly's latest single with Joey Bada$$, this is a track that sounds like the various elements are running in different timezones, the music slow, the rhymes just that brilliant little bit slower, as if the words are coming at you through a treacly fog, take some time to ooze themselves through the viscosity. Superb production from Castle to keep everything 'kind of' together — it takes real production smarts to be able to digitally create something with the looseness and feel of the analogue past, and he's come up with a masterpiece here. STILL haven't picked up their 'Live Like You're Dead' album yet, and this makes that all the more urgent a purchase. Excellent. 

Lux - Genix - VANDIT Records

Genix’s productions always sound like they’ve been late night fretted over, regularly resulting in something that fair mushrooms out of the speakers. No exception, ‘Lux’ initially walks the high-wire between dark echoing, phased & delayed tech-trace and more atmospheric pad & chord-led arrangements. Break-side shafts of uplift filter in, but nothing that’ll quite prepare you for the overt uplift that’s but two minutes around the corner.
