JULY'S TOP CLUB NIGHTS

July's top club nights...
Summer Days (Cloudive Remix) - ELGans - Intricate Cuts

A euphoric, summery house record that’s been floating around in record boxes for a while finally gets its release on Intricate. Starting with a jerky slowdown of its main groove that kicks it into fifth gear, it brims with upbeat vibes until the melodic aspects are really brought to the fore.

Conquer - Piezo - Artikal Music

Italian dubstep producer, Piezo, drops his debut release on J:Kenzo’s label, with two tracks of mutant dungeon halfstep. It’s all a little bit interstellar on both sides —‘Space Conjectures’ is more overtly glitchy and spacey, with washy synths and RJD2 orgasmic bleeps, whilst ‘Conquer’ brings in an Oriental melody line alongside the Hubble processing noises, all underpinned by a stepping drum pattern. Solid stuff.

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.  

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.
