JULY'S TOP CLUB NIGHTS

July's top club nights...
From The Edge - Double Helix (LHF) vs Ragga Twins - Keysound

Whilst many producers have tried (and failed) to really provide a suitable platform for the Ragga Twins over the years, Double Helix has finally come along and produced something so cracked out, mutant and leftfield yardstyle as to fit their unique flow. It’s Alice tumbling down the rabbit hole of the darkest UK sound system music – jungle, grime, dub, 2 step, hip hop, ragga – only to be driven through a particle collider to create absolute chaos. Brilliant.

Collecting Dust - Ed:it - Dispatch Recordings

Combining an old skool break with a dark, reverberating industrial sound and a biology lesson about tinnitus, ‘Collecting Dust’ is an ominous monster of a track. Pounding bass and a tumbling drum make this the most enjoyable science class you've ever had.

6613 EP - DJ Rashad - Hyperdub

Being released on the anniversary of his untimely death, Hyperdub release the final EP from DJ Rashad’s production vaults, saving the best till last. ‘CCP2’ feat DJ Spinn sets the tone, a dope soul sample atop a rolling juke frame, followed by the huge vocal-led ‘Cause I Know U Feel’ which is as close as you get to a hands-in-the-air “last tune” with juke. The mood then switches with ‘Taso’ and ‘Do Not Fuck’. The former gets hyper trappy, whilst the latter is an intense footwork beat excursion drenched in paranoia.

Fractals - Silkie - Anarchostar

The third longplayer from Silkie is as hyperreal and technicolour in its gangsta boogie characteristics as ever. Boy, this guy can really play! If ever there was an antidote to the bleaker qualities of dubstep and associated genres, this tapestry of melody, pitch and tone is it. Too many great tracks to mention, but check the euphoric ‘Limits’, the on-trend and suitably named ‘Entrapment’, the minor qualities of ‘Majik’ and the cheeky 'Love Affair'.
