JULY'S TOP CLUB NIGHTS

July's top club nights...
Pocket Piano (Breakbeat Mix) - KiNK - Running Back

The Bulgarian maestro demonstrates on his ‘Cloud Generator’ EP he’s more than happy to defy expectations, a respite from the darker techno he’s so proficient at producing, though the closing breakbeat mix of ‘Pocket Piano’ is the most unexpected and memorable, a glorious rave throwback with enough sonic surprises to leave dancefloors breathless. 

Conquer - Piezo - Artikal Music

Italian dubstep producer, Piezo, drops his debut release on J:Kenzo’s label, with two tracks of mutant dungeon halfstep. It’s all a little bit interstellar on both sides —‘Space Conjectures’ is more overtly glitchy and spacey, with washy synths and RJD2 orgasmic bleeps, whilst ‘Conquer’ brings in an Oriental melody line alongside the Hubble processing noises, all underpinned by a stepping drum pattern. Solid stuff.

Fractals - Silkie - Anarchostar

The third longplayer from Silkie is as hyperreal and technicolour in its gangsta boogie characteristics as ever. Boy, this guy can really play! If ever there was an antidote to the bleaker qualities of dubstep and associated genres, this tapestry of melody, pitch and tone is it. Too many great tracks to mention, but check the euphoric ‘Limits’, the on-trend and suitably named ‘Entrapment’, the minor qualities of ‘Majik’ and the cheeky 'Love Affair'.

From the Edge - Double Helix (LHF) vs Ragga Twins - Keysound

Whilst many producers have tried (and failed) to really provide a suitable platform for the Ragga Twins over the years, Double Helix has finally come along and produced something so cracked out, mutant and leftfield yardstyle as to fit their unique flow. It’s Alice tumbling down the rabbit hole of the darkest UK soundsystem music — jungle, grime, dub, two-step, hip-hop, ragga — only to be driven through a particle collider to create absolute chaos. Brilliant.
