JULY'S TOP CLUB NIGHTS

July's top club nights...
Raw Earth Metal - General Ludd - Ten Thousand Yen

If ever there was a track which sounded like how I felt jacked on four double espressos then ‘Wigu Hill’ is it — jittery as fuck and loaded with a woodpecker-like purpose. It has an intense, weird and hypnotic quality. As does the rest of the EP from Glasgow’s Mr Ludd; track names like ‘Molcorp Mountain Pass’, ‘Garimpos’ and ‘Prisoner’s Dilema’ only hint at the madness contained within. I urge you to explore.

Shatterz - Sleeper - Crucial Recordings

The second EP on Sleeper's own Crucial label continues the thick vein of quality, heavyweight halfstep pressure. ‘Reclaim’ kicks things off in style with a rootical roller, all sirens and lazer noises over a ruff bassline. ‘Kaya’ evokes the sound of yesteryear — Skream & Coki in their dubbier '06 phase — with an insistent 'Kaya' vocal snippet and a growling low-end drive. Finished off with ‘Shatterz’, a wasted narcotic rub with superb off-key percussive detail.

Back In My Life - Boxer & Forbes pres Dandy - Colorize

A sleeper of a record from Colorize that warrants attention as a proper gem, Back In My Life’ is a seductive slice of melodic progressive that’s brimming with ambient shimmers, dramatic drumrolls and huge basslines, packing a dancefloor punch without letting things spill gratuitously over into trance.  Keep it in your box if you really want to take a house set up a notch.

Lou - Ellen Allien - BPitch Control

The B-side of Allien’s latest ‘High’ EP sees her dropping what’s unmistakably a dirty progressive record, through and through. While ‘Lou’ deceptively fires up with a moody tech house vibe, it’s not long before it’s been transformed into an acid-drenched belter. Bigger than you’d think.
