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...
Rhythm - Wildbirds & Peacedrums - The Leaf Label

Back with their first record in nearly four years, the ever-creative husband and wife duo Mariam Wallentin and Andreas Werliin decide to strip things back for this aptly-titled release. From the off, ‘Rhythm’ sets out its stall with a tight, driving, solo drum break, which acts as the metronomic musical anchor for Wallentin’s weaving vocal. Rarely has the old truism less is more been more brilliantly executed.

 

'Painful' - Federico Monlinari - Oslo

"A friend who knows about finding the balance between solid rhythms and sound design."

Concord - Sully - Hsuan

Sully follows up his Keysound EP, 'Blue', with another duo of cuts aimed squarely at junglists. I read somewhere about his ‘tangle of drums’ and since then I’ve not been able to get the phrase out of my mind, it’s so perfectly apt.

 

Where You Gonna Go - Paul White - R&S

As you would expect from genre-hopping producer Paul White, the usual rules of engagement don’t apply here, as he offers up his own suitably idiosyncratic take on house music. Ergo ‘Where You Gonna Go’ — with its none-too cheery subject matter of heartbreak and loss — provides the perfect platform for a cerebral jaunt into the realms of deep, hypnotic, pastoral 4/4. It even features Jamie Woon on backing vocals too!
