Away from all things grinding Electro House, Texas-born Laura Wilson, better known to the world as Gina Star, returns with her fourth original release for 2012, entitled ‘Bananular’.

Showcasing swift lead play, scattered vocal spots and chugging rhythmic builds throughout, Star keeps things simple yet inherently fresh for her most likely final release of the year. Despite not quite hitting in on the same timeless stylings as that of her breakthrough release ‘This Is Hollywood’, ‘Bananular’ marks yet another single she can shout loud and proud about.

Following up last year’s highly successful Miami compilation from Mark Knight’s Toolroom Records, an equally impressive 2012 edition has been released, jam packed with exclusive contenders for this year’s Miami Music Week. Now boasting an exclusive signing with the renowned imprint as the next wave of their undeniable eye for ecstatic Electronic talent, CaPa leads the way for the label’s updated roster on the route to Miami in less than a month with a blissful offering. Whereas ‘Atlantis’ blasts through a stern wave of euphoric leads, London duo Hoxton Whores take it upon themselves to deliver a modern remodel of Blue Boy’s ‘97 original, consisting of unremitting vocal lines and captivating grooves.

With early approval from Axwell, Toolroom call upon the young talents of Toronto’s Mark Mendes for ‘Arisana’. Featuring the heavy-stepping properties of early Deadmau5, this outing does not only encapsulates the impressive steps taken by Mendes lately, but Mark Knight’s undisturbed passion for bringing new blood to the forefront of Electronic Dance music.

Returning after the remix for Sander Kleinenberg, the drum-specialist that is René Amesz continues to impress with this bumpy and delightful contribution to what is looking to be a successful second and certainly not final Toolroom Miami compilation, leaving room for Gina Star’s synth-tinged revamp of ‘Beautiful World’ to take an essential position amid this 41-track package.
