Review: Toolroom gets straight back down to business with Club Rave Dance, featuring 50 club essentials plus continuous mixes by scene heroes Flashmob and Volkoder - marking a return to clubland after a long break. Highlights come from label chief Mark Knight on the uplifting and soulful vocal house of "You Saw Me" (feat Damon Trueitt - GUZ extended mix), the slinky and hypnotic rhythm of dream team Danny Howard & Gene Farris' "How Do We Feel?" as well as Leftwing : Kody serving up the sexy and emotive "If You Wanna". Elsewhere, Baltra & Darius Syrossian drop the year's biggest bassline on "I Want You", the mighty Siege gets back to the disco on "Reach Out" and Tuff London deliver their best Kevin Saunderson impression on the Motor City vibes of "Heart Beat".

Review: Formed by Valerio Squisito, a former member of Black Box no less, as well as DJ Mirco B, Club Squisito ply a skilful line in jazzy Latin minimal house on latest single "I Tell You I Need You". Anchored by plenty of live hand percussion, the pair keep things stripped yet impossibly funky as subtle jazz horns flow under the mix. Deejayz on Fyre go for a much more fleshed-out remix, with some upfront trance chords and vocoders used to make it an altogether different beast, while Taisouegao's mix goes the other way - creating an airless and devastatingly tight minimal rework.
