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...
Got to Believe - Deekline - Gutter Gutter

London badman Deekline showed us his knack for deep, euphoric breakbeats on the radio-friendly club banger 'Deepa' six months back. Now he's dipped into his studio hard drive for more of the same with 'Got to Believe', which lands with an electrifying female vocal refrain, lilting arpeggios, ravey pads and warm Reese sub, before dropping into a bass-fuelled Hannah Wants-style groove. It's the pick of his new five-track 'Heartbreak EP', which also offers up a quartet of tasty house/bass outings for the four-to-the-floor brigade.

#WUT - Hard Driver - Hard With Style

Hard Driver has been tipped for the very top by the likes of Coone and Headhunterz. With his infectious productions featuring catchy melodies and fresh, accessible, raw drops we can certainly see why. This next single from him has a hands-in-the-air glide melody and subtle vocal building up and dropping, with some seriously heavy kicks and time-stretched stabs.

Games Have Rules - Function & Vatican Shadow - Hospital Productions

Dave Sumner and Hospital boss Dominick Fernow team up for a decidedly understated release. If you’re looking for the former Sandwell District member’s sub-sonic techno or Fernow’s raucous industrial, you may be disappointed with 'Games'. On the other hand, if you are a fan of either artist, chances are you have an open mind and the deep house, shimmering techno and the terse ambient passages that comprise this album, will resonate. Inspired by the eternal life pulses of New York and recorded in that city, it’s an excellent side project.

 
The Discovery - Somna - GO On Air Recordings

Somna’s GO On Air debut is as good an example as any of the label’s excellent first innings stretch. Thunderously produced and cool without being laidback, it’s stacked with un-rote sounds. Add to that riffs that deliver their thrill without strolling too high up the keyboard, and FX that’ll tickle a neuron from a thousand yards out, well bottom line, ‘The Discovery’ just works.
