HIGH FIVE: OCTOBER

The five nights you need to hit in the UK this October!
Just Getting Started - Bruce - Dnous Ytivil

You can’t ever really hope to bottle the elements that Peverelist and co. look for in the music they release on Livity Sound and its backwards spelt offshoot label, but if you could, you’d be something of an instant techno savant. Coming with a kind of bruk and bolshy rolling accessibility, Bruce’s first plate proves to be a super solid entrance, made of minimal elements and a refreshing sense of  wryly wrought joyfulness on ‘Tilikum’.

Praise the Sun - Fliptrix feat Rag N Bone Man - High Focus Records

'Vultures' was one hell of a preview, 'Praise the Sun' is the second single to be lifted from Flip's highly anticipated fifth solo album 'Polyhymnia' produced by Molotov. Accompanied by a brilliant animated video 'Praise the Sun' is a minimal yet massive grower, slathered by Molotov with some peachy backing vocals and scratches, Flip really starting to sound unique in his attitude and delivery, his persona really coming across stronger than ever. At this rate High Focus are battering all competition in terms of the most exciting, vital UK label of the moment. Superb stuff from all involved. 

Nocturne - Generation Next - 7 Days Entertainment

Big Strick keeps it in the family as the latest release on his label comes from his son. Favouring a similar approach to his dad, Strickland Jnr. delivers the killer, percussive techno of 'Chili Cheese Fries' and lays down skittish drums and jazzy flourishes on the excellent ‘Idee Fixe’. Proving that he’s not just a chip off the old block and that he has his own identity, the young producer also drops two excellent mid-tempo, beatsy tracks, ‘Vanilla Sky’ and ‘The Tomorrow People’, which inhabit a middle ground between Detroit techno and dusty hip-hop.
