Our underground instalments allow us to showcase the diverse sounds of Toolroom – Miami Underground 2017 is our first Miami album this year, featuring a slightly deeper and tougher music policy. We consider these tracks to be the hard hitters. The tracks that can work the 4AM party, taking it straight to the afters. From Tech House to Techno.
This is ‘Miami Underground 2017’.
Moby – Go (Tiger Stripes ‘White Tail’ Remix) [Drumcode]
Moby’s seminal ‘Go’ got the Drumcode re-work. Adam Beyer’s imprint gave light to the record with some of the biggest names in Techno and Tech House giving their own interpretation on the record. With a smooth breakdown and chunky drums it’s everything and more you’d want to hear from Tiger Stripes… GO!
Project Pablo – In the Locale [Clone Royal Oak]
Royal Oak is home to Leon Vynehall, KiNK, Space Dimension Controller, Jerry The Cat and until recently, Canadian producer, Patrick Holland AKA Project Pablo. A percussive driven track paired with synths to create an atmospheric deep track. 10/10.
Joris Voorn – Esquape [Green]
The Great Esquape EP marked Joris Voorn’s second solo release of 2016. Esquape “finds that perfect sweet spot between house and techno.” Perfect for the sunrise on Miami Beach with a repetitive vocal and lush percussion.
Solardo – The Spot [Toolroom]
Manchester duo Solardo burst onto the scene with ‘Tribesmen’ released on Jamie Jones’ Hot Creations label and since have taken the scene by storm with more after parties than you can shake a stick at. We were buzzing to welcome Solardo’s debut on Toolroom, ‘The Aztecs’: Crisp, tight drums with a massive bassline and catchy, chanted vocals. ‘The Spot’ is driven home with a seriously tough and relentless groove. “Solardo and Toolroom was always gonna end well”
Format:B – Whippp (Wade Remix) [Formatik]
Another firm favourite with Wade laying down his low slung groove to Format B’s Whippp. A solid unadulterated slice of dance floor perfection.
Patrick Topping – Tease Magnet [Hot Creations]
‘Paradise on Earth’ was the first instalment of an artist led album by Jamie Jones’ outlet, Hot Creations. Up on mixing duties they welcomed HC regular’s Nathan Barato and Patrick Topping. Along with two mixes, the album was also stacked with brand new music. “Tease Magnet” features the usual Topping ingredients: Wonky vocal sampling, rapid-fire percussion and that signature raw bass line.
Shock Machine – Lost in the Mystery (Jonas Rathsman Remix) [Marathon Artists (KLS)]
We’ve always been big fans of Rathsman, and with this remix he takes the original by Shock Machine and re-invents it into a brooding slice of House, full of tension and epic anticipation. Beautiful vocals & acoustic guitars meet with analogue growls in another epic remix.
Dosem – Projection [Toolroom]
A solid, grooving and jacking House groove all gets whisked together with an infectious siren sounding synth, a seriously funky bass line and shed-loads of energy to keep those floors rocking. A triumphant return for one of our favourite producers… It keeps everyone moving!
Dino Maggiorana & Agent Orange – Long Island [Toolroom]
Dino and Agent Orange join forces on ‘Long Island’. A Techno driven, 4AM ready club cut. This no-nonsense, Techno roller offers the perfect vibe. Expect much more from these two…
Rrotik – In Between [This Ain’t Bristol]
Oozing crisp production yet bundles of character ‘In Between’s’ thundering baseline resembles something you’d hear on a ‘Renegade Hardware’ release. In your face, gritty house with playful attributes.
