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...
Rock La Bibliotek EP - Ekoplekz - WNCL

Those of you who are familiar with Ekoplekz's modus operandi will know the kind of sonic pressure that will be awaiting you in any of his records. And this, a supposedly “dancefloor/ club”-orientated record is more like an opening set in a dank club in Elephant & Castle than any main room affair. Muted, dubwise, spatial and trippy with a hint of low-end theory pulse, this six-tracker is a slowly closing mandible of threshold dance music.

Wind - Beppe Loda Presents Egotrya - Nang

One of the pioneers (alongside Daniele Baldelli) of the Afro-cosmic sound happening in the clubs of north Italy during the '70s makes his Nang Records debut, and presents it as part of his new project, Egotrya. This alluring, electronic disco number hosts a number of alternative mixes, including the euphoric JMRS ‘Garden Party’ remix and favourites from Faze Action under their Andromeda Orchestra guise.

Crazy Paver/Gunfunk - Howla & Wbbl - Ghetto Funk

Ghetto Funk's signature hip-shaking midtempo vibe is in full effect on this double-header of squelchy, organic bass and chunky breakbeats. Bristol's Howla takes a soulful female vocal and shakes out a killer slice of brass-fuelled wiggle-funk on 'Gunfunk', before Guildford's Wbbl joins him in the studio on the manic, jazzy ass-shaker that is 'Crazy Paver'. A brace of bouncy floorfillers from a couple of welcome new names on the scene.

Tormented - B Front & Alpha2 - A2 Records

Sometimes I wonder how these guys can sleep at night — after producing such brutal, sinister rawstyle they must have worst nightmares than eating a block of cheese before bed. Nevertheless if you're into the raw sounds it doesn't get much bigger than this, with the epic film score-influenced breakdown building into a simple, twisted melody, dropping with seriously raw power.
