NOISE IT UP! MUTE!

Mute! was started in 2011 as an illegal rave in Bolton by two lads...
Walter’s Call - Swindle - Deep Medi/Brownswood

Jazz in any form of dance music has always flirted with the naffer end of the spectrum, coz lets face it, jazz is only cool when it's from the '60s and played by a tortured heroin junkie. Most recently this heinous crime against music hybridisation aka electro swing has done more than most to poison the watering hole. And here is where we find the 'Walter's Call EP', lapping at the water's edge, flirting dangerously with shiny, major key jazzy melodies and mucky bass music beats.

Rock La Bibliotek EP - Ekoplekz - WNCL

No guff Chet, I’ve been waiting for Ekoplekz to do something like this for what seems like a long, long time. Not that he hasn’t made music that would function on and pretty much batter any lesser soundsystem in the past, it just feels like these six tracks completely revel in their newfound directness. Basically, take that busted plekzed sound palette, apply it to slow chug techno and you’ve got ‘Sarkaztik’, aka my realised dream.

 

#WUT - Hard Driver - Hard With Style

Hard Driver has been tipped for the very top by the likes of Coone and Headhunterz. With his infectious productions featuring catchy melodies and fresh, accessible, raw drops we can certainly see why. This next single from him has a hands-in-the-air glide melody and subtle vocal building up and dropping, with some seriously heavy kicks and time-stretched stabs.

Move - Effy - Infinite Machine

Sampling Busta and wielding snares like early Blawan can never be that bad a thing, can it really? Irish duo Effy hit out with two big slices of smudged techno, enlisting Troy Gunner and Houndscales on the remix.
