After over a decade in the music industry, Toolroom Records is going back to their roots, re reigniting their passion for house music with their #RESET campaign. It’s about refocusing; it’s about credible House music.
The label has always held a strong musical vision and tight artist roster and Toolroom’s new album series and new events concept is sure to spark this new journey. The first single in the project comes from AMTRAC. “Those Days” may sound familar. The tune has been around since 2012 but now has an official release on a mighty label.
To compliment the #RESET project Toolroom unleashed a brand new website with interviews, new videos (more to come over the next week), events and more. Read more at toolroomrecords.com. The label’s founder, MARK KNIGHT, also explains the project in this video. Catch it below.

Catching the end rays of summer, NYC-based duo SAVA & RAZZ, bring the beach vibes with their bootleg of the “Wonderwall.” Clearly the duo aren’t shy to introduce new friends either. Their shimmering twist on a classic Oasis tune brings together a little moombah shuffle, sax, and calypso rhythms.

Here is quite simply, the meanest and darkest track of 2014. The sonics are huge, while the track itself isn’t exactly. In his latest single for Black Butter Records, the Bristol producer, WOZ, hammers out a massively sinister, minimal, bass-saturated cut. When this one drops, it’s all serious business. Grab it from Beatport or order it from the label direct.
We posted the b-side, “Trust Meh” a few weeks back. It’s no walk in the park either.

Born out of one of the most delightfully greasy and lavishly indulgent features ever to grace a music blog, Scour Records has become a staple for anyone looking for the ghetto-influenced funky breaks. SPINFORTH and FAT HARRY‘s dedication to unearthing dance floor protein via ghettofunk.co.uk‘s SoundCloud Scour has quashed the appetite for free tunes of thousands of djs and music fans alike. They’ve tapped that market and bottled it into yet another go-to source for the funky funk. While the freebees may have dwindled, they certainly haven’t disappeared and their latest offering is a generous five-tracks to get those feet moving. Watch for the free download, it’s available as of August 14.
