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...
Just Getting Started - Bruce - Dnous Ytivil

You can’t ever really hope to bottle the elements that Peverelist and co. look for in the music they release on Livity Sound and its backwards spelt offshoot label, but if you could, you’d be something of an instant techno savant. Coming with a kind of bruk and bolshy rolling accessibility, Bruce’s first plate proves to be a super solid entrance, made of minimal elements and a refreshing sense of  wryly wrought joyfulness on ‘Tilikum’.

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.

House Of Cards - Legion & Logam ft Adam Wright - Program

A soulful slab of drum & bass which sits somewhere in the midst of a melodic liquid piece and a deep tech roller. The weighty bass is omnipresent yet subtle leaving the crisp breaks, clicks and reverb vocal to take centre stage.There’s a huge country and blues vibe coming from the guitar and piano note. This is a stunning EP from a trio that are showing off their exceptional production skills, the flip is simply beautiful. 

Stack It Up EP - Hardware Hustlerz - Syncrophone

Not content with rewiring the Detroit techno code with Ike Release as Innerspace Halflife, Hakim Murphy drops a killer analogue release. 'Has 1' is a driving, housey groove that gives way to eerie synths swooping in, while 'Has 2' sees him venture down a deeper route, back towards his Detroit techno sound. The highlight however is 'Silent Monk 2', a rough and raw percussive workout that centres on a searing bassline.
