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: UK garage scene stalwart and noted pseudonym collector Jeremy Sylvester has been spoiling us of late, offering up a series of expansive compilations of his own productions and remixes under the Garage House Underground banner. Here he delivers volume three, a fine 19-track collection of cuts that combine classic UKG tropes - think weighty bass, organ riffs and manipulated vocal samples - with nods towards classic deep and soulful house. Highlights come thick and fast throughout, but our picks include the bumpin', mid-90s garage bustle of 'I'll Be There (Ldn Dub Vocal Mix)', the sparkling and sun-kissed soulfulness of Matt Early's remix of 'Don't Want To Let You Go', the warped bass and fizzing stabs of 'Let's Do The Bump (Vocal Mix)', and the hands-in-the-air rush of 'Juicy Red Apple'.
Review: Let There Be House & In It Together Records are proud to announce their huge label collaboration, in the form of this massive 60 track compilation containing 30 album only exclusives. 'The Anthology 2020' is a result of both labels having huge success over the past 12 months, with highlights coming from: Born2Groove with the low slung disco goodness of "Happiness", legend Sandy Rivera (with Aruhtra) on the bittersweet and soulful anthem "Love Somebody Else", the return of '90s funky house's glory days on "Piano Groove" by Makree (Sebb Junior Remix) and label chief In It Together's electrifying "Hey Mr DJ" (with Alimish). This essential album comes complete with four continuous bonus mixes by the boss men: two by Glen Horsborough (LTBH) and another couple by Jas P (IITR).
