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...
Simple Science - Zero 7 - Make Records

Having distanced themselves from that frequently (over)used and much abused chill-out tag, for which they became so well-known, Messrs Binns and Hardaker return once again for another lesson in perfectly pitched electronic pop. Taking in vocal-led, arpeggiated synth house, pitched down kosmiche and super smooth, late night 4/4 pop, it’s all about that sharp, smooth production style and their meticulous attention to detail.

 

 

 

 

 

Games Have Rules - Function & Vatican Shadow - Hospital Productions

Dave Sumner and Hospital boss Dominick Fernow team up for a decidedly understated release. If you’re looking for the former Sandwell District member’s sub-sonic techno or Fernow’s raucous industrial, you may be disappointed with 'Games'. On the other hand, if you are a fan of either artist, chances are you have an open mind and the deep house, shimmering techno and the terse ambient passages that comprise this album, will resonate. Inspired by the eternal life pulses of New York and recorded in that city, it’s an excellent side project.

 
Cubic - A&N Project - ITWT

Inside 'Cubic' (or ‘Cubik’ depending on whether you believe mp3, press release or artwork) is an excellent trancer fighting to get out. In the engine room, the beats, bass, percs, sub riffs et al piston superbly. With the riff though, comes the caveat. Note-wise it's effective, but the thin, reedy synth playing it is simply not cutting la moutarde.   

Anjunabeach (Genix vs. Las Salinas Remix) - Above & Beyond - Anjunabeats

‘Say Another What’ and ‘Arcadia’ proved that the on-paper possibly not-so-obvious pairing of Genix & Las Salinas was in fact stylistic alchemy. That’s something their ‘Anjunabeach’ redux only serves to underline.
