If there was ever a time to really showcase our roster, it’s now. One year on from #RESET, Toolroom’s new squad is leading the way in all things house, tech house and techno. To kick start October, we wanted to experiment with our artist roster and do something a little different. We are proud to introduce 'T1'.
The first in a new album series, T1 is all about new and unexpected combinations of Toolroom's leading artists. Featuring 7 unique, never been done before collaborations, this album is a way for us to really celebrate our artists' talents and to challenge them with new creative partnerships.
First up - Mark Knight vs Prok & Fitch. ‘Into My Life’ is everything you’d expect and want from this stellar collaboration - A big room club banger which will be lighting up many a party to come.
Next up we have the instrumental version of the tune of the Summer from Technasia & Green Velvet, Suga. Available exclusively via this compilation, this is an essential tool that Joris Voorn has been hammering for the past 6 Months.
We then move over to Toolroom’s very own Weiss and label favourite Harry Romero. This collaboration showcases another side of the Toolroom sound - straight up House music, and ‘Let Me Show Ya’ is all about chunky, heavy beats and infectious basslines that has already seen Pete Tong provide early Radio One support.
Next up, it’s Adrian Hour and Eelke Kleijn. A collaboration which is both alluring and melodic, ‘Take Control’ is the perfect Techno injection for T1 – The result is so good, it’s hard to believe that this is the first time the guys have worked together, but we’re sure it wont be the last.
Heading over to the underground floors we have Secondcity and Kydus with ‘The Light’. A track which is designed for the early hours from 2 of the UK’s brightest up and coming stars, this heads-down roller is one for the darker floors and delves into territory of sub label Toolroom Trax.
Rene Amesz has had a standout year with singles ‘Like It Deep’ and ‘Big’ dominating the Beatport charts. This collab see’s him join forces with fellow tech house stalwart Mendo and ‘Tribeca’ is the perfect example of two outstanding producers coming together to create something really special.
Finally, upcoming talents Jamie K and Thee Cool Cats have collaborated on ‘One Time’. Another infectious track to add to the Toolroom vaults that features a groovy vocal stab and crisp pianos, this track ties T1 together and rounds off the first in an exciting new series for Toolroom.
