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...
Sulu Sekou - Call Super - Houndstooth

As a precursor to Call Super’s 'Suzi Ecto' album, the subdued edit of ‘Sulu Sekou’ that graces this 7” feels at first like it could be a bit misleading, built, as it is, out of tuned percussive ticks, worming melodies and sampled jazz toplines. But it isn’t. It’s actually the perfect palette cleanser from what’s come before it and a fantastic entrance point to what’s coming after. Impressively clever, it’s beautifully assured in its understatement.

 

A Last One For the Road - The Green Martian - JOOF

Laurent Christian Georges Véronnez’s first crack of the Green Martian whip in the better part of a decade. The tone and vibe of the 'Original', Splattered Implant & Alan Riddick versions are very Goa, with plenty of chunky percussion and acidic squall. It’s Gary Delaney’s excitingly arranged, polished, assiduously FX’d trance-progger that has the pulse-rate running quickest, though.

Armchair Psychiatrist - DJ Stingray - [Naked Lunch]

It’s been a while since either this label or Stingray have released material, so ‘Psychiatrist’ is a welcome return. In true Sherard Ingram form, the title track is a blistering, high-paced electro track, scattergun percussive volleys fired over hyperactive metal 808s as Stingray drops noisy, discordant riffs into the ether. ‘Strontium Dog 2’ is less pacey but just as intense, with waves of tough claps supporting insistent techno-bass pulses. It sounds like he never went away.

 

 

Lookin For Love (Mark E Remix) - Robot84 - ISM Records

New EP from Robot 84, who washes some creamy synth tones over some dreamy, Italo-influenced nu-disco. Rolling at mid-tempo, ‘Lookin For Love’ is an ideal accompaniment for those a bit reluctant to leave the White Isle this season, especially the final track, ‘Yo Yo Yo Dance’. An excellent production from veterans Andy Williams (Fuzz Against Junk/Yam Who?) and Scott Ferguson — and if this isn’t enough, Mark E casts a little shade on the mood with his inspired remix.
