Review: Toolroom Trax: run by DJs for DJs and with no frills. Not content taking on Miami this year and compiling an extensive mix collection to prove it, Mark Knight & Co. ensure they've still got their finger on the pulse of global house and techno trends with this new hit prediction right here by U.K. favourite Alan Fitzpatrick (Drumcode/Hotflush). He teams up with ascendant young gun Wheats on brand new banger "M27" - this is tough and functional main room techno that's perfect for trancing-out under the strobe light - and equally great for leading up to the peak time. Wheats himself delivers an extended edit next, injected with jacked diva vocals and a truly euphoric chord progression for added measure.
Review: Following up July's Just Wanna EP on the mighty Toolroom, the Brighton-born/London-based rising star Maxinne Garman returns with another certified banger in the form of "The Message" a dubby and bass-driven main room weapon for any serious DJ wanting to make the transition to the peak time. With an equal dub techno influence (and with the added power of soulful vocals) is "Find A Way" next that's loaded directly off the factory floor in greyscale fashion and has an undeniable Berlin influence that's sure to get the heads down in the warehouse.
