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...
Land of the Dead - Shrust - Ten Ton Beatz

I continuously find myself defending jump-up from the unattractive “unintelligent”, even “chavy” label that it’s been plastered with. If you don’t understand its simplicity, it doesn’t mean it’s any less important than your musical preference. Have some fun people, jump-up is all about vibes and German producer Shurst uses that jump-up staple sample, the pneumatic drill, to show us just how many vibes you can find in a tool box.

Mirror of the Sun - Clarian - Soft Touch

New label venture from Seth Troxler focusing on music with a more organic bedrock. Clarian’s debut mixes pop, folk and loose, post punk ideas into his polished strain of house music. Ex-Footprintz partner, and Visionquest affiliate, Clarian North follows releases for Turbo and Hot Creations with this pleasantly skewed, three-track EP. Nicely varied content, but my personal favourite is the racing punk-funk of the title track, where Chris Isaak meets the Bush Tetras.

Lost Midas - Lost Midas - Tru Thoughts

Following a tone set by the likes of Fantastic Mr Fox, Lapalux and Deco Child, you know the one; where electronica meets the influences of dub and West Coast low-slung attitude, Lost Midas conjures up this glistening slice of beat pop. The Captain Supernova mix comes through with the more fluid approach, but all in all a good effort.

Blockbuster Night Part 1 - Run the Jewels - Mass Appeal Records

EL-P and Killer Mike rolling out a 'fucking brutal' preview from their soon-come second installment of RTJ — crucial thing you should know is that this music should be played loud. Hella loud, in order to have its desired effects. And if the DJ won't turn it up, leave. If it's not unhinging your fillings it's not working.
