Review: An outlet for both unreleased and exclusive music from the label's family members alongside rising talents, this is the fourth instalment of Toolroom's popular 'House Party' series. Featuring standout releases from Mark Knight's label plus the scene's biggest imprints, with highlights coming from: industry heavyweights Nic Fanciulli & Andrea Oliva on the slinky "Medium Rare", the inimitable Yousef with the pounding acid of "Save Me" (feat. Molly Green), legend Todd Terry with TCTS on the boompty bounce of "Get Freaky" and UK tech house hero Seb Zito delivering the peak time stomper "Don't Stop". As if that was not enough, there are also three continuous mixes by scene stalwarts such as Lefti, Piero Pirupa and label staple Maxinne.

Review: Party-starting Sydney duo Black Angus and Connie Mitchell have a hit on their hands. Like many of the most memorable club hits, "Can't Help The Way That I Feel" is devilishly simple, with a two-note melody and attractive vocal snippets (a re-recorded vocal phrase from Evelyn Champagne King classic "Love Come Down") rising above a chunky, funk-fuelled house groove. Alongside the duo's ace "Extended Mix", this epic package contains no less than 11 similarly peak-time-focused reworks. We're particularly enjoying the bumpin' beats and disco samples of the Ben Renna Extended Remix and the bright and breezy nu-disco bliss of Casual Connection's extended revision, though DJs who like it tougher will no doubt gravitate towards David Penn's muscular, rave horn-sporting "Iberican" tribal house revision.
Review: Simma Black has been in fine form of late, so it's no surprise to find that this bustling collection of new music and recent label highlights, compiled to coincide with the dance music industry's annual weeklong celebration in Miami, is something of a belter. There's plenty of variety across the peak-time ready tracklist, from the intense, trance-like builds and classic U.S house style grooves of Low Steppa's "One Day" and the piano house-plus-wobble bass brilliance of Martyin Badder's "Feel Loved", to the bumpin' New Jersey garage revivalism of Greco's "Move Your Body" and the dark, angular, bass-heavy late night filth that is David Keno's "Rip & Pop".
