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...
Money Counter - xKore & Stereoliez - Rottun Records

Breaking the rules of both hardstyle and moombahton on this one, an 105bpm booty shaker with brutal kick drums. I love it!

Rock La Bibliotek EP - Ekoplekz - WNCL

No guff Chet, I’ve been waiting for Ekoplekz to do something like this for what seems like a long, long time. Not that he hasn’t made music that would function on and pretty much batter any lesser soundsystem in the past, it just feels like these six tracks completely revel in their newfound directness. Basically, take that busted plekzed sound palette, apply it to slow chug techno and you’ve got ‘Sarkaztik’, aka my realised dream.

 

Symbols - Acre - Project 13

After his dalliances with Pinch’s Tectonic and Cold Recordings imprints, Manchester resident Acre’s productions seem to have grown a bit more steely and have become a bit more worldly at the same time. Retaining that all important swing and the ruggedness he’s shown before, the three tracks on the inaugural 12” for Project 13 display Acre’s capacity to write engaging, functional techno flawlessly. Awash with texture ‘Retrograde Loops’ is the best thing I’ve heard all month.

The Way U Do It - Tito Wun - Defected

Big feelgood house/disco moment with a Todd Terry-style remix from Damiano Von Erckert, plus Doc Daneeka and Jacques Renault keeping the disco fires burning.
