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...
Carry On - Statik Selektah feat Joey Bada$$ & Freddie Gibbs - Duck Down Records/Show Off Records

Good god but I'm in love with the break in this track. So fat, so punchy, pure pleasure in the beats, a kick so heavy it carries its own bassline with it — SS keeps things simple with the loops, a peal of Dave Liebman/Jan Garbarek-style sax, and some sighing droning dissonant strings that swim in the kind of unsettling cinematic waters Lalo Schifrin or Quincy Jones would be proud of. Great stuff from Gibbs, even greater stuff from Bada$$ — looks like the new 'What Goes Around' set is gonna be Selektah's tuffest and most essential yet. Been waiting for him to come out with a record that's consistently great from start to finish. Looks like he might have done just that. Essential. 

Phenomenon - Duro - Dutch Master Works

Brand new act Audiometrics take on this classic hardstyle track by one half of Showtek, DJ Duro, showcasing that for a brand new act on the scene they already have their production values nailed down to compete with the best. Keep an eye on these guys into 2015...

Feel My Love (100Me Remix) - Rich & Deller - Bad Habit Muzik

Supremely classy breakbeat from the London-based producer, who takes Rich & Deller's soulful vocal-led Balearic house original and twists it up with an electro-style bassline and extra syncopated goodness.

Land of the Dead - Shrust - Ten Ton Beatz

I continuously find myself defending jump-up from the unattractive “unintelligent”, even “chavy” label that it’s been plastered with. If you don’t understand its simplicity, it doesn’t mean it’s any less important than your musical preference. Have some fun people, jump-up is all about vibes and German producer Shurst uses that jump-up staple sample, the pneumatic drill, to show us just how many vibes you can find in a tool box.
