Review: The third single to come from his Paris By Night collection, Bob reminds us of his much deeper earlier work. Taking an American folk standard (most famously used by Nina Simone and consequently remixed by Masters At Work in 2002) and jacking up to match today's beefy, standards, Bob's brought a classic bang up to date with real passion and dedication to the groove. On the remix front we find Nico De Andrea pressing the twisted EDM bass button, we see Tiago doing an amazing impression of Julien Jabre and, finally, we get all carnal and tribal with Gregory Cabyan.
Review: Dutch super trio Kraak & Smaak go poolside: Miami style here for Toolroom. Indeed this compilation showcases the many shades of house music that soundtracked some serious fun in the sun, at 2018's edition of Miami Music Week. The longtime staples of the UK imprint Jalapeno serve up all things deep, funky, nu-disco and even a bit of French Touch for good measure. Highlights include Lindstrom & Prins Thomas' disco odyssey - translated via their remix of Temples' "Born Into The Sunset", Freerange boss Jimpster's lush and hypnotic "English Rose" (original mix), last year's comeback by Parisian legend Alex Gopher & Pierrick Devin on "Jazz Rock" (receiving another well deserved rinse!) and the inimitable Detroit legend Andres with his remix of Cool Peepl's "Free" (feat Billy Love, Amp Fiddler & Sundiata O.M). Several of the trios funked-up tracks feature throughout in addition to a continuous mix of the playlist.
