HIGH FIVE: OCTOBER

The five nights you need to hit in the UK this October!
Origins - Pedestrian & Jasperdrum - 2nd Drop Records

Continuing where their 'Kalakuta/Ndizi' release from last year stopped, the duo dig deeper into the Afrocentric palette, mutating further into off-kilter techno riddims. On the flip, Alix Perez destroys the remix of 'Kalakuta' with a dub 'n’ bass rework. 

Symbols - Acre - Project 13

After his dalliances with Pinch’s Tectonic and Cold Recordings imprints, Manchester resident Acre’s productions seem to have grown a bit more steely and have become a bit more worldly at the same time. Retaining that all important swing and the ruggedness he’s shown before, the three tracks on the inaugural 12” for Project 13 display Acre’s capacity to write engaging, functional techno flawlessly. Awash with texture ‘Retrograde Loops’ is the best thing I’ve heard all month.

Get You - Monday Never Comes - HARD

Andy Whitby’s HARD brand has been taking over the UK’s hard dance circuit this year, with packed events across the country, as well as his highly popular monthly Hardkast. With the label now in full swing this new release features a very catchy male vocal overload on top of a piano lead breakdown, building with sharp snares and dropping with a dirty electro bassline, with a bouncy element. Fresh hard house for 2014.

Praise the Sun - Fliptrix feat Rag N Bone Man - High Focus Records

'Vultures' was one hell of a preview, 'Praise the Sun' is the second single to be lifted from Flip's highly anticipated fifth solo album 'Polyhymnia' produced by Molotov. Accompanied by a brilliant animated video 'Praise the Sun' is a minimal yet massive grower, slathered by Molotov with some peachy backing vocals and scratches, Flip really starting to sound unique in his attitude and delivery, his persona really coming across stronger than ever. At this rate High Focus are battering all competition in terms of the most exciting, vital UK label of the moment. Superb stuff from all involved.
