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...
Feel My Love (100Me Remix) - Rich & Deller - Bad Habit Muzik

Supremely classy breakbeat from the London-based producer, who takes Rich & Deller's soulful vocal-led Balearic house original and twists it up with an electro-style bassline and extra syncopated goodness.

The Storm EP - Habstrakt & Megalodon - Never Say Die

Another hawking globule of brostep phlegm flobs into my ears in the most hi-NRG and mid-range way. It’s a pretty intense rush, kicking off with ‘Yabba Dabs’, a screeching joyride of grating wobble. Followed by ‘The Storm’ a pile-driving onslaught of side-chained synth abuse, only to be upstaged by ‘Revenge’, a thumping romper stomper, culminating in ‘Riddim 101’ which can only appeal to anyone below the age of 18, delirious through Meow Meow abuse. I’m exhausted.

The District - Andrew Bayer - Anjunabeats

The proverbial hat trick, Andrew puts his third solo of the year square into the back of the dance floor net. Loads of chime-y piano juxtapose effectively with angular FX (and the odd whip-crack or three) and big squelches of distortion, Stupendously uplifting - and only more so over repeated spins, while it maybe doesn’t quite ace ‘Once Lydian’, it lands inch close.

Digital Nation - Technoboy, Isaac & Tuneboy - Titanic

Last time these three guys hit the studio together we were blessed with a dancefloor banger, so expectations were high for this follow-up. Luckily there is no disappointment in sight with this perfect balance of old skool/nu skool production. The legacy of these three legends shines through, with the old skool samples and kick and bass mid-intro, but their relevance in the EDM sound today is more than apparent, with the big room house-style melody and blistering hardstyle kick on the drop.
