HIGH FIVE: NOVEMBER

The best parties around this November

CALL OF THE WILD

Disclosure’s Wild Life Detroit festival bridges generations of dance music...
Come Undone (Toydrum Remix) - Trentemoller - In My Room

This standout from Trentemoller’s 'Lost Reworks EP' features a trippy and intense psychedelic interpretation from Pablo Clements and James Griffiths (UNKLE, Psychonauts etc). It's glam, but not as we know it!

HES027 - Bruce - Hessle Audio

Lately, there’s been a real sense of frugality from Hessle Audio in terms of their recorded output, but the lads have returned with a three-track 12” from newcomer, Bruce. A bit of an abstraction, Bruce’s music is definitely weird enough to hold the attention away from the dancefloor, though ‘Not Stochastic’ does lurch straight for it. It’d have to be an open-minded dance, mind, with all comers set to sway to creeping loopy techno. 

Dance With Me - Strange Rollers - Warehouse Wax

Lovers of pitched-up chipmunk rave vocals will be all over this excellent cut from Northampton-based Strange Rollers' new eight-track EP. Once again borrowing heavily from the early '90s sound, the artist otherwise known as Ritchie Kellingray shows off his talent for bouncy piano lines, energetic arpeggios and fearsome 140bpm breakbeats. Elsewhere on the EP, 'Broken Glass' sounds like a darker take on early LTJ Bukem, while 'Sweet Reggae Music' is all rastaman toasting, dubwise keys and soundsystem sub. 

Kind of… Sometimes… Maybe - Jessie Ware - Island Records

Despite critics and fans alike going crazy for this lady, I can’t say that I have been entirely convinced yet. This single however is undoubted quality. More than the sum of its parts; the first thing that stands out is the production, which is super sharp and concise, yet has a beautifully transient, fluid quality that really keeps your ear. Combine that with Ware’s rich, breathy vocal — which is pretty much faultless — and you have yourself a surprisingly addictive and hooky example of peerless electronic soul.
