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...
TBA 2 (One More Time) - Frontliner - Keep it Up Music

Some tracks build into anthems over time through repetition. Others hit you with an instant feeling on the first play. Frontliner's latest production is very much the latter. Everything about this track is cutting-edge hardstyle, but whether it’s the vintage style vocal or epic melody, something hits you with a warm feeling of nostalgia the first time you hear it. A true example of music with feeling and emotion, and a perfect end-of-night anthem from the melody man of Holland.

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. 

Origins - Pedestrian & Jasperdrum - 2nd Drop Records

Continuing where their 'Kalakuta/Ndizi' release from last year stopped, the duo dig deeper into the Afrocentric palette, mutating further into off-kilter techno riddims. On the flip, Alix Perez destroys the remix of 'Kalakuta' with a dub 'n’ bass rework. 

Vice Versa - Man With No Name - Perfecto Fluoro

Whatever rock Martin Freeland’s been hiding under for the last decade, I’m damn glad he’s emerged from it. ‘Vice Versa’ certifies that M.W.N.N. has all the life skills necessary to exist in Goa trance’s second golden age.
