HIGH FIVE: AUGUST

We give you five of this month's top nights
Another - Scrase - Love Love

Scrase’s approach to techno isn’t wildly different from what’s going on around him but when ‘Perc 15’ — stuck right at the end of his 'Another' 12” for Love Love — gets playful with the marimba shots, there’s a real glorious moment of insight. 

Dissolve - Simon Patterson feat Sarah Howells - Armind

Simon Patterson has no trouble churning out thundering trance that’s loaded with plenty of surprises, and ‘Dissolve’ is one of his best in a while; a vocal anthem that also weaves in equal doses of electro, techno and slamming grooves. There’s an excellent use of rhythmic twists and turns, before it finally drops into its extended euphoric breakdown; eventually slamming back with brute force and an unexpected twist after the drop. It’s an old trick from Patterson, though he gives it a fresh lick of paint here by slowing things down and finessing the grooves.

Saved You - Yuri Kane feat Melissa Loretta - AVA Recordings

Cool track, and highly polished to boot here from Mr. Kane. Glacier-clear out of the speakers, its thumpy progressive-trance underlay is the perfect dais for Melissa’s strong-of-the-type vocals.

Wild Luv - Roach Motel - Get Physical

Farley and Heller's 1994 wild pitch anthem 'Wild Luv' gets a reinvigorating re-rub thanks to Get Physical. The original version and DJ Pierre's towering take are both present and most correct.
