JULY'S TOP CLUB NIGHTS

July's top club nights...
Shatterz - Sleeper - Crucial Recordings

The second EP on Sleeper's own Crucial label continues the thick vein of quality, heavyweight halfstep pressure. ‘Reclaim’ kicks things off in style with a rootical roller, all sirens and lazer noises over a ruff bassline. ‘Kaya’ evokes the sound of yesteryear — Skream & Coki in their dubbier '06 phase — with an insistent 'Kaya' vocal snippet and a growling low-end drive. Finished off with ‘Shatterz’, a wasted narcotic rub with superb off-key percussive detail.

Toxin - Etch - Wisdom Teeth

After first appearing on Blackdown’s Keysound imprint back in 2013, Brighton’s Etch has been pushing his dark, skeletal identity via the Soundman Chronicles and Space + Time labels. On new label Wisdom Teeth, he offers up a typical anachronistic piece, an esoteric skin stretched across the faded bones of jungle’s past for a slow-mo bump. In contrast, label honcho K-Lone drops a chirpy little number full of jiggly rhythmic elements and slinky sub bass.

Lou - Ellen Allien - BPitch Control

The B-side of Allien’s latest ‘High’ EP sees her dropping what’s unmistakably a dirty progressive record, through and through. While ‘Lou’ deceptively fires up with a moody tech house vibe, it’s not long before it’s been transformed into an acid-drenched belter. Bigger than you’d think.

Overflowing (Instrumental Mix) - Michael Woods - Diffused

Do yourself a favour and steer well clear of the vocal cut of Michael Woods’ new single ‘Overflowing’, and head straight for the visceral dancefloor appeal that personifies the instrumental mix. A polished mix of electro and EDM, it’s the brute force of that bassline that cements it as a mainroom banger with enough brute power to wreck the joint. Executed with precision.
