Review: Always at the forefront of the best house and techno, Toolroom call on Slovenian ace Umek to helm the latest in their series of Toolroom Knights mixes. Tracks from Funkagenda, Hertz, Gary Beck, Alex Kenji are among the 36 prime cuts on offer (available as seperate tracks or as two full-length mixes), with special shouts going out to Just'n Toko's minimal thriller "Let Me Dig", Christian Smith's brilliant old-school burner "The Price Of Freedom" and Umek's own "Novi Sad".
Review: With too much good music to release in one collection, Toolroom present the second volume of its coveted Ibiza compilation. The list of artists included runs like a roll call of the most exciting producers in electronic music right now with highlights such as: ascendant Brit Weiss on the uplifting vocal house anthem "Let Me Love You", Bristolian bass house hero Will Clarke doing his thing on "Tricky", the ever impressive Eli Brown nailing that peak time vibe on "Always", Hannah Wants getting deep down and dirty on the Kevin Saunderson sampling "Love Somebody" and Toronto's finest DJ Sneak & Demuir doing their thing on "Good Ol' Days". Add to this three continued mixes that cover Poolside, Club and Afterclub, and you have a collection that encapsulates the electronic spirit of Ibiza like no other.
Tigerhook Corp pres Randall Jones - "The Bitter Truth" - (7:34) 125 BPM
Momu - "Sunsicle" (Original Mix) - (5:29)
Christian Cambas - "It Scares Me" (original mix) - (9:44) 131 BPM
Review: Just in time for the weekend, our friends at Bedrock drop another collection of progressive gold from deep within their pioneering vaults. You'd think they would be running thin already, but this 5th volume features some real beauties, such as; Steve Porter's mix of 'Anyway' by Amber, 'The Bitter Truth' from Tigerhook Corp pres Randall Jones, Fortunato & Monstressor 'Imagine', and Momu 'Sunsicle'. Another unmissable 10 full length tracks starting at just L5.99... Bargain!!
