HIGH FIVE: OCTOBER

The five nights you need to hit in the UK this October!

NOISE IT UP! MUTE!

Mute! was started in 2011 as an illegal rave in Bolton by two lads...
Lookin For Love (Mark E Remix) - Robot84 - ISM Records

New EP from Robot 84, who washes some creamy synth tones over some dreamy, Italo-influenced nu-disco. Rolling at mid-tempo, ‘Lookin For Love’ is an ideal accompaniment for those a bit reluctant to leave the White Isle this season, especially the final track, ‘Yo Yo Yo Dance’. An excellent production from veterans Andy Williams (Fuzz Against Junk/Yam Who?) and Scott Ferguson — and if this isn’t enough, Mark E casts a little shade on the mood with his inspired remix.

Zip Zero - Slaine feat Reks & Termanology - Suburban Noize Records

Instinctively distrustful of the La Coka Nostra stable (cos I fucking hated House of Pain) but keep getting pleasantly surprised by their latest offerings. This is so Buddha-blessed, rootsical and lush it could soundtrack an Indian wedding video — a truly strange mix from producer The Arcitype of cooing backing-vox, trippy raga-harmonium, thrumming rocksteady bass slowly enfolding you in its clasp, Slaine breaking forth with some thoughtful, moving rhymes about rising from nothing, how to become a flower. Superb. 

The Cake Is A Lie - Strange U - Strange U

Oh man am I loving the noise these sick twists have been making — this is from their forthcoming '#2040' EP and jeebus hyperion Christ I don't think I've heard such a thuddingly bruising hip-hop track since the last Kashmere or Sir Smurf Lil albums. Stupendous production from Zygote as always, he knows the devil's in the detail and beyond the fantastic low-slung fuzz-synth funk grind it's the sudden splashes of dubbed-out keys and flickering guitar that make 'The Cake Is A Lie' such a compellingly deranged delight. Also check out the brutal and bristling 'Vapourous', like 'The Cake' now available for nowt on their Bandcamp page. My favourite UK artists at the moment. 

Give Me A Sign - Rhythm Riders feat Aswad, Renegade Soundwave & Brother Culture - Sub Slayers

Jay Cunning's ever-reliable Sub Slayers imprint drops a sun-kissed blast of dubbed-out, percussive breakbeat reggae from Rhythm Riders, a supergroup featuring Tony Gad & Drummie Zeb of UK dub icons Aswad, Danny Briottet of electronic pioneers Renegade Soundwave and Tim Bran of Dreadzone. For their second single the crew team up with vocallist Brother Culture for a rootsy clarion call to the masses. On remix duties, Londoner King Yoof shows there's life yet in the future jungle sound with a reworking of pure fyah, while Renegade Soundwave turn in a driving, drum-led, acid and fx-tinged breaks version.
