REVIEW: GLASTONBURY 2014

New world order

HIGH FIVE: AUGUST

We give you five of this month's top nights
The Dubs EP - The Crystal Ark - DFA

Extended dub versions of key tracks taken from their stunning self-titled LP. Four tracks mixing up proto-techno, New Beat and robust EBM styles.

Stay Kosmik EP - Ralph Myerz & The Kosmik Diamondz - Paper Recordings

Techno/disco hybrid from UK house mainstay, Paper Recordings. Highlight being the breezy, easy-listening-influenced ‘Lett Sommarmat’.

Very Exciting - Konichi - Playaz Recordings

Playaz manage to keep experimenting, to keep pushing on forward and yet manage to retain that Playaz sound. This juggling act must be intense — how to break boundaries but stay true to your sound? Astounding! ‘Very Exciting’ is very dancefloor, bouncy and bubbly — it’s got a real sense of fun, but also the classic Playaz tinge of darkness. The beat's a stepper and the synths are wobbly, giving you a torrent of shapes to throw on the floor.

Circles In My Mind - Tramhed feat Wrenne - Z Records

Joey Negro opens the doors of his Z Records label to Tramhed, following ‘Save Me’ on Tronicsole — eking out last year on a rather anonymous-looking, hand-stamped 7”. This time, the Brighton-based producer makes more of a statement with this dreamy nu-disco number, ‘Circles In My Mind’. In its original version, Wrenne’s vocal accompanies a live, Faze Action-style rhythm section, but it’s Joey Negro’s ‘Club’ version that provides a little Def Mix-inspired magic.
