HIGH FIVE: AUGUST

We give you five of this month's top nights
O Unilateralis - Bronze Teeth - Diagonal

The latest release on Powell’s Diagonal label comes from Dominic Butler from Factory Floor and Richard Smith, the producer behind L/F/D/M. It’s no surprise that the three-tracker explores the gnarled, industrial side of techno. 'Acetone' is a heads-down acid pulser and 'Glass Tooth' is based on the kind of scratchy drums and unpredictable bursts of noise that label owner Powell is known for. Neither can compare however, to 'Tapeworm', a distorted, pummelling rhythm that drones and stomps malevolently as the duo tweak the frequencies beyond the point of agony.

Five One Eight - El Gant w/ Jack of All Trades feat GGDT - Diamond Media 360/ Rule By Secrecy

Tight little banger, a paean to the Albany area of upstate NY, nattily put together by Jack of All Trades with some superb scratching skills and wound round a Premo-style slice of full-phatness that makes summer shine that little bit brighter. Get on it. 

Artificial Sweeteners - Fujiya & Miyagi - Yep Roc Records

The first single to be lifted from the forthcoming album of the same name from F&M. The arrangement is tighter than we've seen in previous work, altogether more metronomic and definitely reminiscent of Can's latter output, that veered loosely into the mainstream. Built on soaring guitars and a rigid drum pattern, it's a bold and bright return.

Trance Mission EP 1 - Paul Oakenfold - Perfecto

Along with some nicely enigmatic artwork, these are the first three tracks singled out from Oakenfold’s revisionist ‘Trance Misson’ album. The ‘Not Over Yet’ reboot is anything but overstated, sinuously powerful and never overly reliant on vocal recognition factor for its kicks. Likewise the bells of Quench’s classic ‘Dreams’ sound daisy fresh and just as welcome. It’s Future Disciple’s drifting horn ride take of ‘Open Our Eyes’ that seals the Money Shot deal though.
