Review: As you might expect, these remixes of Rich Nxt's 'Natural', a fine collaboration with Shyam P first featured on last year's Know The Score album, are rather impressive. Former dubstep don turned disco, house and techno enthusiast Skream steals the show with his sizeable revision, which adds beefy sub-bass, angular electronic sounds, oddball riffs and Shyam P's fine lead vocals to a seriously heavy, glitch-flecked tech-house beat. Seb Vito takes a different approach on his rework, reaching for spacey synth sounds, woozy chords and hybrid two-step/techno beats. It's a fine remix all told and one that should appeal to the growing legion of DJs who reach for both tech-house and UK garage.
Review: A must have for DJs looking to get the sound of Toolroom into their mixes, House Party Vol. 6 is full of the freshest new music from some of the hottest acts right now, Boasting a huge a total of 70 tracks plus three album guest mixes by label staples Sllash & Doppe, Jaded, Paige and Nihil Young. Highlights come from: KC Lights & Leo Stannard who serve up some super soulful vocal deep house on "Cold Light", Danny Howard teams up with Eli & Fur on the glassy eyed and bittersweet euphoria of "Next To Me", the return of legend Hatiras (with Vincent Caira) on the low slung and jazzy joint "It's All Right", as well as Chicago stalwart Anthony Attalla nailing that rolling main room tech house vibe on "Don't Stop" and some slinky and hypnotic progressive house from Rauschaus and Peer Kusiv on "Mesopotamia".
