Never confined to a solitary genre, Toolroom Records latest 3-tracker lends weight to the diverse range of styles the imprint continues to push. Historical house cut ‘Do You Want Me Baby’ is for the eclectic remix treatment this time; on offer are two big remixes alongside Victor Simonelli’s original Cloud 9 piece, sounding as fresh today as when originally conceived.
Expanding Toolroom’s ever growing assorted catalogue first comes London-based unique outfit Dusky. Already celebrated for a melting-pot sound fused by the key ethic to compose deep and soulful electronic music, the duo’s take on ‘Do You Want Me Baby’ slots perfectly into the aforementioned eclectic ideals; a warm serving of deep, soulful music the result. With Dusky support continually escalating from DJs as diverse as Pete Tong, MJ Cole, Dubfire, Sasha & beyond, this remix is cemented already as a future classic.
Remixing from the opposite end of the musical spectrum, legendary drum and bass producers Total Science return to Toolroom fresh from the Radio 1 playlisted ‘Piano Funk’. An intelligent sub heavy liquid remix that pays homage to old school DnB, the result mirrors the heritage that the original track holds in house circles. Plus with Total Science’s Toolroom relationship already including Bailey, DJ Marky, Friction and Mistajam support, this re-lick holds promise to once more cause waves with the bass scene elite.
Finally, no remixes are ever possible without a fantastic source, and so it is Toolroom’s privilege to offer a fresh master of Simonelli’s US house classic for 2012. Raising the production just enough to complement the two accompanying stunning remixes, Cloud 9’s original anthem offers a fitting conclusion to another class Toolroom EP.
