Mark Knight‘s Toolroom Records return with Toolroom House Party, an 80-track long compilation including 20 brand exclusive tunes.
With a total of eighty individual tracks featuring the biggest records of the year from artists including Mark Knight, Nic Fanciulli, Jack Back, Chus & Ceballos and Shadow Child, plus twenty exclusive productions from the likes of Tough Love, Sharam Jey, and Martin Badder, this latest installment from the Toolroom family looks set to soundtrack the start of summer in typically impressive fashion.
Alongside the wealth of tracks featured, the package also includes three mixes from three key label regulars; French-born, Miami-based house favorite Dombresky, emerging Glaswegian talent KC Lights, and Toolroom mainstay Ben Remember. From house and disco sonics through to tech-house and techno territories, ‘Toolroom House Party’ has you covered.
From this incredible collection of stunning tunes, we would like to pick up a couple of them you should definitely check it out.
First of all, the beginning track of the compilation, Push Me Downby ACAY. We’ve particularly enjoyed the plucked hypnotic baseline as well as the vocal loop and the rolling percussions; the quiet breakdown that evolve in a super catchy drop is the part we have loved the most.
Nervous and Bunny Tiger return on the label with Fish From Japan. The track takes influences from the classic 90’s sounds of Miami and NYC and gives them a contemporary UK twist. This is unashamedly feel-good, funky house music.
Scrolling down a bit, you’ll find Paige & Nihil Young with Body Language featuring the incredible vocal of Sara Sommerer. The clean and techy beat perfectly keeps the tempo with the vocal while the energy increases thanks to the powerful baseline. The drop is into a limbo between underground and dark elements and relaxing melodies. An incredible combination of unique sounds that make the track a true gem into the 20 exclusive tunes of Toolroom House Party.
Paige and Nihil Young are two emerging electronic artists from very different sides of the dance music spectrum – House and Techno. After meeting briefly in Amsterdam, the two took a liking to one another, and the thought of merging their respective styles into one quickly became reality. Just before the pandemic hit the country of Italy, NY-based Paige set off to Nihil in his small town of northern Italy, putting in 10 hour studio days for two weeks straight. The result – 16 genre-blending tracks, mixing Dance-Pop vocals with Techno-infused sounds.
