Review: While he might not be a name to receive all the latest hype and background chatter, the UK's Mikey B has been a strong presence on the wider bass scene throughout the last ten years. Coming through with the first mutations of grime into dubstep, the man has been perfecting and refining to achieve the diversity of sounds found on this latest LP. Evolution is a journey, or rather, a DJ set in and of itself; all sorts of bass squelching can be found across its seventeen bangers, all of which have their roots firmly locked onto the dancefloor. In fact, play this whole damn killer out at a party, and you don't even need a DJ. Hybrid cuts for the modern ear - yes, yes, Mikey!
Review: Despite the setbacks brought forth by the pandemic, we're confident that Toolroom will still have a stellar year as always! With that in mind, the fifth edition in their 'House Party' series' looks to be the biggest yet, with a whopping 70 tracks to keep the party going for days on end. As a bonus, label signees such as Wankelmut, TCTS and Siege (who appear with contributions to the compilation personally) provide a continuous mix each - bringing the party to your house. Other highlights come from a wide variety of artists within the tech/house spectrum such as: legends Technasia and Green Velvet with the aforementioned Siege on the mighty "Suga" (Siege extended mix), the ascendant Luxembourger Amii Watson with the sensual mood music of "Higher" and the Fuse London affiliated Rich NxT teaming up with minimal techno vetran Christian Burkhardt on the slinky and hypnotic "Basics" - plus many more.
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).
