HIGH FIVE: AUGUST

We give you five of this months top nights
Two Empires - NickBee - Invisible Records

This is the third record from Noisia’s Invisible Recordings. An atmospheric intro, that lasts over a minute, opens this experimental track. A calming, natural vibe lies beneath a top layer of futuristic, frazzled sounds and a fast-paced beat.

D.B.T.P - Javi Boss - Masters of Hardcore

From the brutal new EP by Alicante-based gabba DJ Javi Boss, this one is out to do two things... damage ear-drums and dancefloors!

Beliefs - Voyage - Emcee Recordings

Label boss GQ clearly has a great ear for musicality, which is why he’s snapped up relative unknown producer Voyage before anyone else could get their mitts in. This is a modern roller decorated sparsely with techy metallic elements, and a soulful, confident vocal. What makes this tune particularly sophisticated is the heritage which oozes from within it. It doesn’t sound like a throwback, but more like a homage to years of jungle cultivation. 

Ran Away - Da Tweekaz feat Ghost Wars - Dirty Workz

These guys keep on delivering vocal hardstyle anthems bordering on a commercial level, but that’s not a bad thing for the scene in general. Featuring a catchy male vocal and bleepy main melody, some clever pitch-bending sections give it that extra edge. This is one of those tracks that's made to be played at peak-time on the main stage at festivals of the harder styles this summer.
