HIGH FIVE: NOVEMBER

The best parties around this November

CALL OF THE WILD

Disclosure’s Wild Life Detroit festival bridges generations of dance music...
The Remixes Pt. 3 - Max Graham - ReBrand

A boundary-crossing selection of reconfigurations from Max’s recent works... Rafaël Frost packs punch-a-plenty on the mix of ‘So Caught Up’, while Max himself puts a celestial twist on the Gai Barone co-op ‘Dying To Survive’. ‘FYC 2013’ with Corti Organ is tons of rave-ily riffed fun, but just out in front is ReOrder’s jet-propelled redux of his and Maarten de Jong’s ‘Lekker’.

Migration Pads - 1000 Names - DRUT

In upping the tempo, the pads and the lushness for their debut on Kelpe’s DRUT imprint, Bulgarian duo 1000 Names have created a whole new life for themselves that — if I’m brutal — trades more on palatability than it does the ingenuity of their earlier hip-hop leaning material that I was such a sucker for all those moons ago. It’s all very balanced, sun dappled and sweetly listenable but something about it just feels a little too… safe.

Deep Draw EP - Lo Shea - Hope Works

The man behind Sheffield's eminent Hope Works warehouse venue — where the likes of Theo Parrish, Carl Craig and Kyle Hall have turned it out — Lo Shea launches a gleaming new label, taking on the mantle from his now defunct Seaghdha imprint. 'Capacity Creep' is a mucky, slightly sinister warehouse anthem if ever there was one, its stark synths paying tribute to LFO. On the flip side, 'Black Plate', with its punishingly basseous (yes, that probably is a word) kick pulses relentlessly, and should ideally be accompanied by a single strobe light.

Kill Me For the Thrill - Bastian Salbart - High Contrast

The female/male vocal dynamic rarely fails to excite, yet (production costs, we’re guessing) remains rare. That two-hander is the basis for Salbart’s latest, and aside from the title-alluding edgier lyrics and quality vocals, the production kicks plenty cool too.
