HIGH FIVE: AUGUST

We give you five of this month's top nights
Laika - Panthera Krause - Riotvan

Inspired by the pioneering hound Laika, the unfeasibly brave Russian space dog who became the first animal to orbit the Earth, this gorgeousness from Robert Panthera Krause pays a most fitting tribute. 'Through My Mind' is blissful, yet strangely melancholy. The throbbing 'Isla' is all minor chords and building textures too, resplendent with soothing flutes. 'If' wilfully breaks up beats, before hitting its pulsing rhythm about halfway through. 'Dubček', meanwhile, is delightful dub house disco, loaded with ghostly orchestral stabs. 

DoorsNoDoors - Roman Et Deroux - DiscoNoDisco
Doors classic ‘The End’ gets a sublime and respectful rework.
The Purge/Enthroned - Gavin Russom - Entropy Trax

DFA man Russom isn’t the world’s most prolific producer, but ‘The Purge’ hits the target with unerring accuracy. The title track is a ferocious acid number, its central, gurgling riff imploding over shifting, chugging percussion and spacey synths. However, the real highlight is 'Enthroned'. Clocking in at over 13 minutes, it’s an insane, tripped-out workout, featuring deranged, analogue chirps and bleeps, rasping percussion unfolding over a dusky, hypo-groove. Buy it on sight if you can still find a copy.

Rocket (Jay Cosmic Remix) - W&W & Blasterjaxx - Revealed

Manchester’s Jay Cosmic is taking the world of electronic dance music by storm at the moment, with support from the likes of Porter Robinson, Hardwell, Krewella and the like. For his latest remix of this current house hit, Jay takes the gloves off and goes full-on hardstyle! With such impeccable production I really hope this is a sign of things to come from this bright UK talent.
