JULY'S TOP CLUB NIGHTS

July's top club nights...
Overflowing (Instrumental Mix) - Michael Woods - Diffused

Do yourself a favour and steer well clear of the vocal cut of Michael Woods’ new single ‘Overflowing’, and head straight for the visceral dancefloor appeal that personifies the instrumental mix. A polished mix of electro and EDM, it’s the brute force of that bassline that cements it as a mainroom banger with enough brute power to wreck the joint. Executed with precision. 

Shatterz - Sleeper - Crucial Recordings

The second EP on Sleeper's own Crucial label continues the thick vein of quality, heavyweight halfstep pressure. ‘Reclaim’ kicks things off in style with a rootical roller, all sirens and lazer noises over a ruff bassline. ‘Kaya’ evokes the sound of yesteryear — Skream & Coki in their dubbier '06 phase — with an insistent 'Kaya' vocal snippet and a growling low-end drive. Finished off with ‘Shatterz’, a wasted narcotic rub with superb off-key percussive detail.

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. 

Final Warning - Jammz - Local Action

Perhaps the hottest MC on the scene right now drops his usual insightful-yet-powerfully direct lyrics — dealing with female phone stalking — atop a staccato R&B chopped beat. All eyes are on Jammz.
