JULY'S TOP CLUB NIGHTS

July's top club nights...
Triangles - Andre Sobota - MicroCastle

Sobota has deftly avoided being cornered into any particular genre, producing drum & bass to techno and everything in-between, though with ‘Triangles’ he unleashes his trance chops with a record that’s unashamedly grandiose. There’s a hands-in-the-air vibe to the harmonies, and while the deeper grooves keep it one step away from full-blown floaty euphoric trance, that step is a defining one. An impressive and distinct move for the MicroCastle stable.  

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.

Pocket Piano (Breakbeat Mix) - KiNK - Running Back

The Bulgarian maestro demonstrates on his ‘Cloud Generator’ EP he’s more than happy to defy expectations, a respite from the darker techno he’s so proficient at producing, though the closing breakbeat mix of ‘Pocket Piano’ is the most unexpected and memorable, a glorious rave throwback with enough sonic surprises to leave dancefloors breathless. 

From the Edge - Double Helix (LHF) vs Ragga Twins - Keysound

Whilst many producers have tried (and failed) to really provide a suitable platform for the Ragga Twins over the years, Double Helix has finally come along and produced something so cracked out, mutant and leftfield yardstyle as to fit their unique flow. It’s Alice tumbling down the rabbit hole of the darkest UK soundsystem music — jungle, grime, dub, two-step, hip-hop, ragga — only to be driven through a particle collider to create absolute chaos. Brilliant.
