HIGH FIVE: AUGUST

We give you five of this month's top nights
The Game - Luna & E-Force - A2 Records

One of the pioneers of the hardstyle sound teams up with studio partner E-Force for this brutally raw affair on A2 Records. Without a shred of euphoria, this is as nasty as it gets.

Love Taking Over EP - Dusky - 17 Steps

No one could accuse Dusky of lacking confidence. Nick Harriman and Alfie Granger-Howell's lush production oozes it. 'Love Taking Over' is deliciously moody, reminiscent of lost jungle mixtapes from the mid-'90s. On the flip, 'Inta' goes as far as to sample Grooverider's dark rave standard of the same name, unleashed under his Inta Warriors alias. Loading it with dark stabs, chanting piano chords pull it from the gloom and into the dazzling light. Winding up with the equally girthsome 'Expectations', you just have to take your hat off to them.

Cowboys and Hustlers - LAW - Showlovepeoplenowkiss

Judge… book… cover… it's a tired old truism, but if you were to look at the happy, smiling face of Lauren Holt on the cover of her latest EP you’d have little idea of exactly what darkness and oddity lies within. Follow-up to the equally quirky, interesting and complex debut  ‘Haters and Gangsters’ EP, this bold, forthright and strident collection of songs once again marks LAW out as an unusual, prodigious talent.

 

 

 

Hero (Gammer Remix) - Pegboard Nerds - TBC

Awesome UK hardcore rework of this dubstep crossover monster. Word on the street is that it's going to be a free release, so keep your eyes peeled, as this one is hot.
