HIGH FIVE: OCTOBER

The five nights you need to hit in the UK this October!
'Dawn in Down' - U-More - Cabaret

"Hypnotic groove at its best."

Symbols - Acre - Project 13

After his dalliances with Pinch’s Tectonic and Cold Recordings imprints, Manchester resident Acre’s productions seem to have grown a bit more steely and have become a bit more worldly at the same time. Retaining that all important swing and the ruggedness he’s shown before, the three tracks on the inaugural 12” for Project 13 display Acre’s capacity to write engaging, functional techno flawlessly. Awash with texture ‘Retrograde Loops’ is the best thing I’ve heard all month.

Medicine Chest/Seven Nation Army - Prince Fatty meets Nostalgia 77 - Tru Thoughts

Considering these two are amongst some of the finest producers in the UK, this collaboration was always going to result in some form of musical greatness... and that it does. Taking on two tracks from N77’s back catalogue, it’s all about the echo, phasing, and reverb as Prince Fatty does the business. Dennis Alcapone even makes an appearance for their rework of White Stripes’ ‘Seven Nation Army’.

 

 

 

Crystal Caves - 100Me - Bad Habit Muzik

Here's a deep roller featuring gloriously nebulous snatches of female vocal, muted keys, heady atmospherics and a gorgeous synth string line that cuts through the mix like a hot knife through butter. Londoner 100Me (Alex Hilliar to his mum) has a sound that is all his own, progressive in vibe but with an urban edge and melodic sensibility that helps this music stand out from the crowd. Gorgeous stuff from a producer to keep an eye on.
