HIGH FIVE: AUGUST

We give you five of this month's top nights
Wild Luv - Roach Motel - Get Physical

Farley and Heller's 1994 wild pitch anthem 'Wild Luv' gets a reinvigorating re-rub thanks to Get Physical. The original version and DJ Pierre's towering take are both present and most correct.

Come Into My House - Seb Wildblood - Church

Starting life as grungy rave-up in a south London club, Seb Wildblood and his Church-going buddies have been doing well maintaining their musical reputation. And it’s only going to get stronger with this subtle, yet sublime EP of nuevo house riddims. It’s all about the soulful groove of the title track for me though, with its superbly restrained but ultimately groovy ethos.

Generick/Intercooler - Perfect Kombo - Menu

Spain's Perfect Kombo is one third of Iberian triumvirate Breaks Mafia. Here he delivers a double dose of techy noisenik breakbeat with plenty of searing atmospherics and tight keyboard work. 'Generick' opts for crisp Far Too Loud-style glitch-bass and electric synth stabs over a massive kick-snare combo, while 'Intercooler' sends down rugged and brooding psy-tech bass, '80s-style keyboard stabs and classy percussion hits. One for DJs who tread the darker, more abrasive corners of the breakbeat genre.

'Haphazard' - DOSE - Commercial Suicide

"The heaviest track from my LP, a devastating bassline paired with a massive drum kit and edits... check the switch!"
