HIGH FIVE: AUGUST

We give you five of this month's top nights
The Chamber (2014 Remixes) - Inertia - Discover Records

Inertia — a middle-of-the-last-decade John O’Callaghan/Neal Scarborough project — put out a few very commendable tracks. Here, Indecent Noise and Liam Wilson set about a nip, tuck & re-release work-over on ‘The Chamber’. Less tough than you might expect, Indecent Noise's version does pay plenty of ear service to the zeal-laden riff. Even closer to the bull's-eye, the currently extremely busy Mr. Wilson’s remix is beefier about the drums, with a pleasing sideline in squiggly, squally acid.

Bring Your Love feat Luke Jenner - Joakim - Tigersushi/Because

The Frenchman has always surprised with an ever-changing style — from house, to disco to new wave and curious pop — and this new single release continues Joakim’s vital and brilliantly original style. ‘Bring Your Love’ is a collaboration with The Rapture's Luke Jenner, realising new experiments with late '80s-style pop music. If this wasn’t enough, then there are some excellent remixes from the likes of Young Marco, Sam Tiba and Cut Hands’ William Bennett, with a superb Liquid Liquid pastiche.

Code of Silence (Remix) - Lil Dap - King Underground

Superb Lewis Parker rerub of Group Home veteran's track, interpolating elements of 'Livin' Proof' (deliciously) and laying down some seriously lambent jazzadelia over the rock-solid beats. As ever with Parker, excess to requirements and thus absolutely spot-on. 

Running Low - Netsky feat Beth Ditto - Epic Records

Beth Ditto makes this track. Without her you may barely even register you’ve heard it. Huge disappointment from Netsky, when you look back to tracks like ‘I Refuse’. It feels like he’s been lazy here, listening to some drum & bass radio hits and mulching them together, and not very well.
