HIGH FIVE: OCTOBER

The five nights you need to hit in the UK this October!
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.

The .XVX Files - Ultrademon - Hyperboloid

What do you think rave music created by the guy widely credited with creating the internet trend seapunk would sound like? Confused? Manic? Synthetic? Neon and set sail on a tide of crystalline pixels? Yeah, these four tracks are all that and more.

 

Fiction Inc - Pan-Pot & Vincenzo - Watergate

Big-room techno meets deep house here for an end result that is prog house through and through. The deep whir of that bassline, those robotic soundscapes, and the chilly flashes of melody that work their way into the mix… get your progressive groove on like it’s 1999.   

Mirror of the Sun - Clarian - Soft Touch

New label venture from Seth Troxler focusing on music with a more organic bedrock. Clarian’s debut mixes pop, folk and loose, post punk ideas into his polished strain of house music. Ex-Footprintz partner, and Visionquest affiliate, Clarian North follows releases for Turbo and Hot Creations with this pleasantly skewed, three-track EP. Nicely varied content, but my personal favourite is the racing punk-funk of the title track, where Chris Isaak meets the Bush Tetras.
