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.

Coax/Thundare - Graze - New Kanada

From the get go, ‘Coax’ feels like the sound of Graze resetting all the machine defaults after their 'Edges' album dropped back in January. A different beast altogether, there’s a tougher more actual assault to it; from the very temperament of the drums to the timbre of the lead line it feels like it all has a specific purpose. If people overlooked Graze before, coming with a sound such as this certainly makes them harder to ignore.

Bricks Don't Roll - DJ Hazard - Playaz Recordings

You can’t dispute it’s a banger, You can’t dispute that it sets the dance on fire and you certainly can not dispute his title as the undisputed King of jump up. Hazard has the formulae to create the biggest of tunes from the simplest of sounds. The patterns are reminiscent of Clipz circa late naughties, never a bad thing, and the vocal is super sexy. Listen to this with caution, its seriously catchy, and you’ll sound like a weirdo trying to hum it on the bus.

'Momma' - Moodymann - Rush Hour

"This gets better and better every time."
