HIGH FIVE: AUGUST

We give you five of this month's top nights
The Touch (Solaris Heights Remix) - Grum - Heartbeats

Around one minute and 34 seconds into 'The Touch', a broad, beaming grin should, if your face is all working properly, start to spread warmth into your soul. Scots wunderkind Grum has manipulated a Nina Simone album to some rather devastating effect here. It’s the kind of affirming house music that makes you fall in love with it all over again and want to hug strangers on a sweaty, pulsating dancefloor. In the sun. Add some very competitive mixes from Sebastian Leger, Solaris Heights and Andre Sobota, and you have an ample and unexpected contender for track of the summer.

Two Empires - NickBee - Invisible Records

This is the third record from Noisia’s Invisible Recordings. An atmospheric intro, that lasts over a minute, opens this experimental track. A calming, natural vibe lies beneath a top layer of futuristic, frazzled sounds and a fast-paced beat.

Triple 7 (Cally Remix) - S.H.O.K.K - Hard Blitz

Cally (ex Cally & Juice) delivers his first solo remix, taking on European hard trance legends S.H.O.K.K’s new release for an energetic kick and bass workout, with great use of the main melodies, and some ferocious basslines made for dancefloors.

Open Cycle - Alejandro Arroyo - Change Audio

It’s difficult to believe this represents the debut release for Chilean Alejandro Arroyo, considering the confidence in which he’s crafted a peaktime progressive record destined for the record bag of stalwarts like Hernan Cattaneo. The bassline that powers ‘Open Cycle’ is deep, dark and menacing, though it carries enough ‘oomph’ to push it nearly into the realms of trance; and there’s a beautiful transition into the melodic elements in the peak of the record. A rip-roaring debut, it’s accompanied by an equally good remix from Andre Sobota.
