As festival fever begins to fade we head into an exciting autumn of parties, let’s hope nothing gets in the way of us dancing our socks off ’til crimbo. Here’s our latest picks of the bunch.

The undisputed godfather of dubstep heads to M1 for a rare all night long set, in the intimate confines of Joshua Brooks. The Deep Medi don is renowned for his contributions and pioneering of the genre, from the dark and deep early days to the wompy goodness of later years. As one half of Digital Mystikz, Mala cemented his position as one of the most influential producers of recent times.

Banana Hill 10th Bday | Yes | Sat 25 Sep | £5

Josey Rebelle, AceMoMa, RP Boo | White Hotel | Fri 8 Oct | £15

Josey Rebelle has been highly regarded as one of the most ambitious selectors in the game for nearly a decade now, her leftfield and oddball choices consistently pushing boundaries whilst taste-making for a generation. She’s joined at the White Hotel by NYC DJ and production duo AceMoma, whose second album in two years, A Future, made waves on Haus of Altr. Support comes from Chicago’s footwork originator, RP Boo and All hands On Deck resident, Abena.
