HIGH FIVE: AUGUST

We give you five of this month's top nights
Darkside - Mayday - Pheerce Citi

Re-released to tie in with Record Store Day, this repress of a long-lost Derrick May track sees the innovator copper-fasten his wiry funk to the kind of menacing bass associated with his colleague Suburban Knight. Recommended.

Shaman Champagne - Second Storey - Houndstooth

A change is as good as a holiday they say, or in Al Tourette’s case, a new non de plume. A cute play on his name, Alex Storey begins the next chapter in his musical endeavours with some crunchy, swinging techno on Fabric’s Houndstooth. 'Shaman Champagne' is paranoid, menacing and bizarrely bumping; if the Grim Reaper had some entrance music, this would be his jam.

Gem Drops Vol.4 - Various - Dropping Gems

Returning with a huge 21-track compilation that features people like The Range, Pixelord, devonwho, Natasha Kmeto, Free the Robots and DJAO, the Dropping Gems label are proving they’ve got as many links as they’ve got talent. The quality does waiver though. 

'Colossus' - BORDERLINE - SOM Music

"Borderline comes on strong with this track off his debut LP. A driving sub paired with clean and crisp drums and percussion!"
