HIGH FIVE: SEPTEMBER'S TOP CLUB NIGHTS

The summer is refusing to sleep, and neither should you in the UK
October - Airhead - Hemlock

I don’t want to call it a reinvention — because it’s not, it’s just a welcome new, club-struck direction — so I’ve started referring to this current period as ‘Airhead’s renaissance’ and regardless of your thoughts on the matter, the swell will continue with this two-tracker due on Hemlock. ‘October’ is a hectic, clunky, stop starter and ‘Macondo’ is more 4/4; its drums march staunchly while its appendages see-saw all over the shop.

'Where We Should Be' - LAST ISLAND - Upscale Recordings

"Beautiful track from Last Island, massively chilled-out pads and warm bassline in this. Should be longer though!"

Freaks - Richard Norris - Throne of Blood

He of The Grid and Beyond the Wizard's Sleeve fame, Richard Norris turns out for Brooklyn's eminent Throne of Blood, and 'Freaks' is indeed a freaky, unsettling, tom tom-heavy workout, with a bassline filthier than Jodie Marsh's Twitter account. "Freaks control the city, and I am one of the freaks" as it proclaims. Well, quite. On the flip, 'Yeah' boasts a delicious Fingers Inc bass, while Blackstrobe don Ivan Smagghe and Hardway Bros pick apart the title track. Sterling work here.

Musique/Let the Rain Pour - Purple Disco Machine - OFF Recordings

Seasonal house/disco hybrid that arouses Stardust memories via filtered loops and an impassioned vocal performance from Oli Rose.
