Eli Brown – Keep On [Exclusive Ibiza U/G 2017]
When Eli Brown made his debut on Skream’s Of Unsound Mind outlet, we knew he was someone to watch for 2017. Since his 4 ‘Got The Power’ EP on the label, Eli pricked the ears of Steve Lawler following suit with his 3AM EP on Viva. There’s some serious buzz around this new producer and we are thrilled to welcome him to the Toolroom camp. ‘Keep On’ features rumbling drums, a heavy bassline and an infectious vocal hook. Eli Brown is one to watch this year.
Waze & Odyssey – Down With Tha [Edible]
Firas Waez and Serge Santiágo AKA Waze & Odyssey landed on Eat Everything’s ‘Edible’ with this HUGE release, ‘Down With Tha’. A nod to the West Coast featuring hyperactive drums and a ‘face melting’ breakdown, this track has the perfect ingredients to be a certified Ibiza anthem!
Ruze – Say What? [Exclusive Ibiza U/G 2017]
Hailing from Birmingham. Ruze are definitely a name to watch this year. Groove ridden Tech House that’s pricked up the ears of Latmun, Format:B, Ben Remember & Chus & Ceballos to name but a few. Expect the infectious sounds of Ruze to soundtrack this summer with what’s undeniably one of the maddest drops around.
Format:B – Not Enuff [Formatik]
Format:B are known for their energy filled, quirky tracks and this one on their own imprint is no different! ‘Not Enuff’ aims straights to the middle of the dancefloor and has all the pace to keep you moving.
Guz – Playing With My Heart [Exclusive Ibiza 2017]
Another new artist and another one to watch for 2017. Guz’s debut on Toolroom shows a clear understanding of how to write a pure party anthem. Guaranteed to rock Ibiza this season. Already supported by Danny Howard, Gorgon City, Riva Starr, Richy Ahmed, TCTS & Roger Sanchez.
Tim Baresko & Clyde P – Useless [Exclusive Ibiza 2017]
Introducing two new debut artists to the label, Toolroom is pleased to welcome Tim Baresko & Clyde P with their instantaneously hooky, feel-good party tune ‘Useless’. Their track delivers the perfect blend of Tech House with hints of Hip-Hop, perfect for the underground floors of the White Isle.
Radio Slave – Bell Clap Dance (Tuff City Kids Remix) [Rekids]
Frankfurt’s Gerd Janson and Phillip Lauer AKA Tuff City Kids provided three remixes of iconic Radio Slave tracks this year. Since the launch of the TCK project, the duo have developed a reputation for supplying quality remixes and originals with their music gracing labels like Permanent Vacation, Delsin, Live at Robert Johnson and Cold Tonic, to name just a few. ‘Bell Clap Dance’ captures the essence of the original by factoring in its various elements, such as its intricate hook and gloomy melody, whilst morphing it into an animated and echoing contemporary cut.
