Review: It's that time of year again: London's CR2 are heading over to Miami for the Winter Music Conference - where deals are made and stars are born. It's electronic music's biggest party of the year and these guys have a swag of surefire dancefloor bombs to set the club alight. Miami Underground 2019 features almost three dozen grooves that will all take your fancy we're pretty sure, with highlights not limited to: Aussie outfit Sneaky Sound System doing their thing on "Can't Help The Way That I Feel" (David Penn remix - extended mix), Chicago legend James Curd on the lo-slung disco funk of "Free Me" (extended mix), Reelow delivering some tough rolling tech on "Bad Swinger", CASSIMM bangin' one out for the main room on the druggy "Work Out" (extended mix) and Leeds favourite Jey Kurmis (Hot Creations) getting deep down and dirty for the afterhours on "About Knapp".
Sui Generis & Kane Law - "We R Kool" - (5:49) 122 BPM
Ovidi Adlert - "Wicked" - (6:29) 124 BPM
Tom Black - "Untouchable" - (5:26) 125 BPM
Review: Mark Brown presents the Cr2 Live & Direct Radio Show, with one hour of the hottest new dance music every week featuring exclusive tracks doing the rounds right now - and some forthcoming house and tech house gems. Here is the playlist from the July 2019 edition with highlights not limited to: Jacky (UK) with the tough acid inflected roller "Toggles", the classic rave aesthetic of Julie McDermott's "Don't Go" (Roger That remix - extended mix), the legendary Todd Terry proving just why he is still the rhythm master to this day on "Samba 2017" (InHouse mix) and Sui Generis & Kane Law going for some moody afterhours minimal on "We R Kool".
Review: This is your 2020 edition of Toolroom House Party! Included in this red hot package are 20 brand new and exclusive cuts from the likes of: KC Lights who serves up the funked-up tribal groove of "You & Me", boss man Mark Knight once again heralding the return of good ol' fashioned funky house on "If It's Love" featuring Laura Davie & The Melody Men, legend Sharam Jey with Andruss & Bob Musella on the tough rolling tech funk of "Rise On My Soul" and man of the moment Shiba San getting deep down and dirty on "Runnin' Roll". Elsewhere, Saved head honcho Nic Fanciulli teams up with Black Circle on the spiritual afro house epic "Leap Of Faith", rising Berliners Mat.Joe give us the neon-lit energy of "Off Ma Mind" and you can bet that the ever reliable D. Ramirez makes a contribution (alongside label chief Knight) on the euphoric "Colombian Soul" which is remixed by label staples Sllash & Doppe. Plus, three super-hot DJ mixes from Dombresky, the aforementioned KC Lights & Ben Remember.
