Crate digging with Andrew Wowk – October

Our resident in-house selector Andrew Wowk drops his Top 10 for October

#1. Simbad – Take My Hand (Jimpster Remix) [Freerange Records]
Absolutely beautiful deep house led by an incredible vocal from Simbad, peppered with Jimpster’s trademark swing and classic melodic elements.

#2. Laika Test Project – No Glory [Power Vacuum]
Crunchy, leftfield bass music that is equal parts dubstep, grime, and hardcore breakbeat.

#3. Nachtbraker – You Can’t Run [Quartet Series]
Punchy, sample-based house that is equal parts funk and chunk, taking from Nachtbraker’s debut album on his own Quartet Series label.

#4. 30drop – Space Beacons [Token]
One for late nights, low ceilings, and dark rooms. Deep, hypnotic techno that builds with swirling chimes, shuffling percussion, and warm bass.

#5. Hammer – Ozone [Modern Magic]
Arriving just in time for Spring, this delightful slice of upbeat house is made for playing in the sunshine.

#6. Autumns – Get It Booked You Bastard [Veyl]
Grab your combat boots, leather pants, and misanthropic attitude – this is dark, twisted EBM at its best.

#7. Drvg Cvltvre – Last Rites [Lumière Noire]
The Netherlands-based experimental techno producer delivers a crunchy, tweaked-out, bleepy ride for his contribution to a huge compilation from Chloé’s label.

#8. Subismo – Cotard (John Tejada Remix) [Massa Records]
The master of analogue machine funk delivers a killer remix that blends warmth with punch.

#9. Third Son Feat. Stereo MC’s – Assimo [Skint Records]
Dark, brooding progressive/tech house propelled by a driving bassline, wacked-out synths, and a great vocal contribution from the legendary Stereo MC’s.

#10. XXXV gold fingers – Fotofonia [Ràkale]
Taken from an album of previously unreleased music written between 2003 and 2007, this beautiful Italo-disco-meets-electro journey is pure euphoria.
