In celebration of the ten-year anniversary of Toolroom Records, the record label of Mark Knight follows up the recent, much-acclaimed release of ‘Your Love’ to call upon German Electro pundits Digitalism to remix the latest single from British indie rock foursome Bloc Party following last year’s re-release of ‘Zdarlight’. With a large portion of the original still intact, the German duo adds a coarse, electronic undertone to the warm and summerish melodies of ‘Truth’, giving the song a unique and uplifting vibe.

There is no denying that December isn’t the most welcoming of climates to body, soul and spirit. Try telling that to Berlin outfit Chopstick & Johnjon; an eclectic House duo who have proven immaculacy adept at bringing a little light to the party come rain or shine. But back on remix duty after taking on Aeroplane’s latest original, Chopstick and Johnjon put a deep twist on Digitalism’s 2005 classic ‘Zdarlight.’ Taking a more chilled and Balearic route to the original than that of Fedde Le Grand & Deniz Koyu’s remix, their Toolroom debut marks a seminal notch in their compelling studio output to don a much needed kiss of life into the grinding hours of snow and shivers associated with the harsh climax of winter’s reign.

Out now on Beatport.

In the aftermath of Thomas Gold’s hard-hitting remodel, Digitalism’s ‘Zdarlight’ classic receives a second fresh lick of paint for 2012, courtesy of Flamingo flagbearer Fedde Le Grand and his acclaimed protégé Deniz Koyu.

In a melodic mixture of rising Progressive House and chugging synth leads, this old school/new school collaborative force find themselves well in their element with an intense take on a sound the Holland-based duo have come to master over the past two years. Pitting their sturdy signature sounds alongside the timeless melodics of the original, Fedde Le Grand’s return to Toolroom Records alongside Koyu marks a promising and respectful extension of a 21st century classic.

Already associated with a premium blend of tectonic Electro tuneage that has liberally fuelled the global club and festival circuit alike, Tommy Trash’s latest work alongside German Electro pundits Digitalism extends the widespread belief that this Ministry of Sound scoping producer is out to shake things up for 2012.

Blending emotive vocal samples and grinding synth work, Trash matches Digitalism’s unique soundscope with the furious energy of his previous work for a vintage-sounding original and an accompanying slightly club-friendlier Tommy Trash remix. But in a transient turn to the more melodic and instrumentally refined side of Electronic music, his tightly orchestrated leads and atmospheric chord progressions are matched by a considerably European blend of Electro. Said to now be focusing on original tracks after his forthcoming remix of ‘Darko‘ for A-Trak’s Fools Gold imprint, his newly adapted studio stylings are certain to be of the utmost quality if his latest efforts are anything to go by.

Eric Prydz comes out with an emotional take on one of the tracks from Digitalism’s latest artist album, released in mid June. After recent, triumphant releases like the Mirage EP2Night, the remixes on Depeche Mode as well as Mokba and Full Stop under his harder and darker moniker, Cirez D, it’s like we’ve seen nothing yet as Prydz and his skillful production ability return for a rendition out of the electro-pop pair from Hamburg that’s destined to become a chart-topping classic. Having made the world of dance music aware of his well-grinded outlet of tracks through his inimitable creativeness and sense for a spot-on harmony that has come to unearth our fellow Swede into an icon, whom certainly is worthy of getting the phrase ”Eric Prydz for president” adapted to him.

Racking up an abundance of anticipated, unreleased tunes recurringly featured in his distinguished live shows over the past few years, it’s no secret the Swede has become a master of melodies – a phenomen this new remix on Circles is a spiffing example of. Soulfully thumping baselines, an unremitting synth filled lead and vocal samples from the original are only a few of the elements making up the latest masterpiece out from Eric Prydz.

The remix package of Digitalism’s Circles now out on Pryda Friends is also containing a take from the aspirant of camp Prydz – Jeremy Olander. After the releases of Fairfax and Rypamont and the Evade EP, Olander returns to the esteemed guest label of the Swedish mastermind for a third appearance. His progressive revision of underground music has become an epic asset to the scene itself and its advancement. And after showing his immense mastery in rendering pieces good enough to belong on the shelves of Dirty South’s Phazing label, Spinnin Records and the aforementioned Pryda Friends, the talent the young Stockholm producer possesses is truly remarkable.

As we yet await The Drew, Animal Garden and his astounding edit of Depeche Mode’s It’s No Good hit to be released, Olander offers his second ever remix, taking on the established duo from Germany and one of the singles off their recent studio album. Unlike the Prydz remix, which is built upon a vivid synth melody, Olander enforces the darker face of the two-piece package with chunky beats, soulful echoes and a solid chord progression.
