Back on remix duty after taking on Michael Gray and Jon Pearn’s ‘Specialized’ for his own Hotfingers imprint, Italy’s Manuel De La Mare joins forces with Joy to turn Marc JB and Polina Griffith’s latest single ‘Don’t Close Your Eyes’ into a heartwarming and beautifully orchestrated deep house gem. Utilizing Griffith’s brittle voice with elegant melodic swirls, propulsive bass and dark and bouncy beat work, the Manuel De La Mare and Joy remix of ‘Don’t Close Your Eyes’ makes for a strong contender for the impending summer season.

Led by the timeless sound of acid-house, Manuel De La Mare and Alex Kenji combine forces for a superb tribute to the Roland TB-303 synthesizer, from which this phenomenal sound derives. Though it’s unveiled as the first release in 2012 for Mark Knight’s beloved Toolroom Records, this collaborative effort form two prominent powerhouse’s within tech-house is more of a validation to the permanent and classic force that is acid-house supplemented by sharp kicks and slick drum combinations rather than a modern trend-setter of a record. Clearly emphasizing the statement many House music aristocracts have been witnessed uttering over the past decade, ‘Acid As 303′ is certainly an outing that allows people to look back on the early 80’s and the inception of acid-house as a phenomen that, more than 20 years later, still is regarded as an unremitting sound.

Led by the timeless sound of acid-house, Manuel De La Mare and Alex Kenji combine forces for a superb tribute to the Roland TB-303 synthesizer, from which this phenomenal sound derives. Though it’s unveiled as the first release in 2012 for Mark Knight’s beloved Toolroom Records, this collaborative effort in between two prominent powerhouse’s within tech-house is more of a validation to the permanent and classic force that is acid-house supplemented by sharp kicks and slick drum combinations rather than a modern trend-setter of a record. Clearly emphasizing the statement many House music aristocracts have been witnessed uttering over the past decade, Acid As 303 is certainly an outing that allows people to look back on the early 80’s and the inception of acid-house as a phenomen that, more than 20 years later, still is regarded as an unremitting sound.

Like last year’s escapades are Toolroom now embellishing the Fall of 2011 with the second issue of their characteristic Amsterdam Dance Event compilation. Having the fifth anniversary of their Toolroom Knights shows in full swing and a year of countless triumphs behind them, the Maidstone-based release platform comes off months of spectacular endeavours that includes the releases of DJ Boris’ I Can’t Wait, Fedde Le Grand’s Metrum and So Much Love singles and Mark Knight’s own Beautiful World and the charitably released remix on You’ve Got The Love to present us the massive, new compilation, which comprises a whooping 10 previously unreleased hit singles from numerous wildly recognized producers.

The headlining position falling into favour of label honcho Mark Knight and Manuel De La Mare’s Snapshot, made up by the highly-prosperous and popular fluctuation in between big room synth chords and twisted, but solid tech beats, the distinguished John Dahlback also returns to the label for the follow-up to the single from Toolroom’s first Ibiza compilation this year – Work It Out. Having defined himself as a producer of the highest notch with his throbbing and uniquely knitted records, Dahlback shows his skillful and creative production ability yet again as the progressive chord array of Phoenix is released as the more harmonic piece of the Amsterdam-tributed, tech-dominated collection of anthems.

Brought back to fire away a 2011 rework out of his tremendous drum and piano-driven Marsch Marsch single from last Fall is Thomas Gold, whom is currently riding on the infectious wave of positive vibes from his recent Alive single alongside Dirty South. Ever the mastermind of club gems, the rise of Gold, that was initiated with the launch of What’s Up (with Alex Kenji) in post-summer of 2010, has literally been indispensable. Merely a few months after his aforementioned instalment on Spinnin Records, the inspiring German could proudly showcase his release marathon that included nothing but full-on hits such as Areena, AGORa, the remix on We Want Your Soul and the Toolroom piece, which is now well on its way back to make another go at a pole positioning on the charts. Not only was 2010 a complete and utter success for the golden producer, but as this year was kicked off massively with the outing of his monstrous remix on Blow Up with Axwell, the expectations from all progressive-house heads as to whether his talent was sufficient enough to establish him amongst the very forefronters of clubland. And now, a bare 8 months and prominent remixes of Lady Gaga’s Judas, Reach Out and Set Fire To The Rain later, Gold contemporizes one of his first break-through singles which is still being supported strongly by the likes of the entire Swedish House Mafia into a killer cut, hard to equal. Having the storming and long-anticipated Sing 2 Me release coming up on Axtone, the Disney-inspired drum lines and common synth filled chords are pulled out and back in the game.

To round off the Toolroom’s essential 2011 pick in preparation for the Holland festival in late October, Koen Groeneveld provides his Dutch tech twist with Richard Dinsdale instilling some disco tinged house. Stefano Noferini, D Ramirez, Rene Amesz, Filthy Rich and Alex Kenji cover the groovier side of Toolroom to complete a peerless package of huge ADE hits and future chart-toppers.

Mark Knight and Manuel De La Mare, two of the most permanent powerhouses in the tech scene, team up for the headliner position of Toolroom Records‘ upcoming Amsterdam Dance Event compilation of 2011, released on Monday, October 3rd. The Maidstone-based release platform comes off months of spectacular endeavours that includes the releases of DJ Boris’ I Can’t Wait, Fedde Le Grand’s Metrum and So Much Love singles and Mark Knight’s own Beautiful World and the charitably released remix on You’ve Got The Love to present us the massive, new compilation, which comprises a whooping 10 previously unreleased hit singles from numerous wildly recognized producers.

As officially premiered in the Toolroom honcho’s own Essential Mix from Space, Ibiza, Snapshot is fired across to the record press. Produced by Knight in conjunction with Italy’s superlative icon behind Circle Of Life and the remix on Nimbus this year, Snapshot is made up by the highly-prosperous and popular fluctuation in between big room synth chords and screwed but solid tech beats to form a keen and steady ascending of another splendid package of unreleased from England.
