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...
Scramble (Remixes) - Duncan Gray - Tici Taci

Extensive remix package from Duncan Gray marking the 13th release on his Tici Taci, collecting new versions of some of the previous label highs. Garnering support from Andrew Weatherall (tested at his Love From Outer Space parties), Gray’s mid-tempo ‘death disco’ style gets suitably re-produced here by the likes of Kieran Holden, Red Snapper, Future Bones and Somerville & Wilson, who individually span the genres of new beat, dub, post punk and new wave with these brilliant remixes.

Physical EP - She’s Drunk - Liminal Sounds

I hate to be the guy that says it, but shit, it was pretty inevitable — considering the close quarters they share — that elements of grime and jungle would mix. It’s been permeating through the slow/fast Metalheadz indebted productions of people like Om Unit, Hyroglifics and Sam Binga, but Berlin’s She’s Drunk makes it feel more like the dulled bass pulses and compressed handclaps are twice as important as the classic drum breaks layered on top on ‘Talk To Them’.

Cursed - Blak Madeen feat Edo G - No Label

Blak Madeen are a duo featuring Al J & Yusuf Abdul Mateen, and they've cooked up something haunting and hypnotic here, bassline stuck to without deviation, beats crisp and right, scratches sublime, and some wonderfully unhinging textural additions that stop things from just becoming purely rotational — as you'd expect a sparkling cameo from ED O.G (but way too brief!) seals off a totally compelling deal. The album this is lifted from is called 'The Time' and I want to make its acquaintance as soon as possible.  

Give Me A Sign - Rhythm Riders feat Aswad, Renegade Soundwave & Brother Culture - Sub Slayers

Jay Cunning's ever-reliable Sub Slayers imprint drops a sun-kissed blast of dubbed-out, percussive breakbeat reggae from Rhythm Riders, a supergroup featuring Tony Gad & Drummie Zeb of UK dub icons Aswad, Danny Briottet of electronic pioneers Renegade Soundwave and Tim Bran of Dreadzone. For their second single the crew team up with vocallist Brother Culture for a rootsy clarion call to the masses. On remix duties, Londoner King Yoof shows there's life yet in the future jungle sound with a reworking of pure fyah, while Renegade Soundwave turn in a driving, drum-led, acid and fx-tinged breaks version.
