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...
Zip Zero - Slaine feat Reks & Termanology - Suburban Noize Records

Instinctively distrustful of the La Coka Nostra stable (cos I fucking hated House of Pain) but keep getting pleasantly surprised by their latest offerings. This is so Buddha-blessed, rootsical and lush it could soundtrack an Indian wedding video — a truly strange mix from producer The Arcitype of cooing backing-vox, trippy raga-harmonium, thrumming rocksteady bass slowly enfolding you in its clasp, Slaine breaking forth with some thoughtful, moving rhymes about rising from nothing, how to become a flower. Superb. 

Ceremony (Velvet Season & the Hearts of Gold Remix) - Mindfair - Golf Channel

Mindfair’s chugging disco track gets this smart reworking from Velvet Season & the Hearts of Gold. For those who need an intro to VS & THOG, Joel Martin and Gerry Roney have, respectively, been involved in Quiet Village/Churchill’s Leopards and DJ Harvey’s infamous Black Cock label, and between them they run the label, Luck Hole Records. Adding a proto-house/new wave touch with primitive drum machines, their remix curdles the original ‘Ceremony’ into something darker and more potent — oozing something oddly sophisticated and strangely elegant. Immerse yourself.

Medicine Chest/Seven Nation Army - Prince Fatty meets Nostalgia 77 - Tru Thoughts

Considering these two are amongst some of the finest producers in the UK, this collaboration was always going to result in some form of musical greatness... and that it does. Taking on two tracks from N77’s back catalogue, it’s all about the echo, phasing, and reverb as Prince Fatty does the business. Dennis Alcapone even makes an appearance for their rework of White Stripes’ ‘Seven Nation Army’.

 

 

 

Lander - Sleeper - Chestplate

More complexity, tick. More dubwise detail, tick. More structural variety, tick. Ahhh, it’s good to hear a bit of experimentation and progression in the old dubstep sound. Whilst the rest have been stuck a little in the rigidity of the halfstep template, Sleeper has been really pushing the sonic scaffolding in his last few releases, and this is no different — moody, poly-rhythmical and industrial textures abound, but still with a swagger that will bruk a dancefloor.
