Review: Progressive house and vocal trance master Farius returns with Forever! Channelling a four-to-the-floor back-beat, uplifting melodies and vocals that explode in splashes of pianos, chords and EDM riffs, Farius goes large in this latest 2020 single. On the flip the English producer looks to harder techno influences in "Kechno", with a slamming Detroit style peaking with its pulsating arpeggios, sidechained atmosphere fills, drums rolls and pumping trance aesthetics to match its stadium-sized bassline.
Review: Amsterdam Dance Event holds a special place in the electronic music community's calendar, and it just wouldn't be the same without the Toolroom family putting on a very special showcase for the industry and punters alike. The Dutch capital's clubbing culture is one of the best in Europe and there's only one place to be this October. They join the fun once again this year and this are kicking off the week at Chicago Social Club for an opening to ADE like no other. In celebration, Mark Knight & Co. anticipate the event with this solid collection of sonic arsenal with highlights not limited to: label staple Weiss serving up classic vocal funky house on "Let Me Love You" (extended Club mix), legends Dirty Vegas getting remixed by CamelPhat on the extended remix of "Days Go By" (which reaches near acid moments), the ever impressive Alan Fitzpatrick providing austere peak time tackle on banger "The Approach" and rising stars like Jacky (with Example) on the wonky tech house of "Another 24" and label newcomer Maxinne dropping the riveting main room thriller "The Message" amongst many more. Comes with two continuous mixes: the first by Romanian upstarts Sllash & Doppe and the second by Swiss scene hero Mendo (Clarisse).
