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.

I had a fantastic time on the white isle this year, and with my August chart wanted to share some of my favourite tunes that were rocking the island’s many clubs. As always, the parties were a blast, and a special shout out to Bora Bora and Danny O for the great hospitality. Stay tuned, as I’ll be sharing my live set recorded at Bora Bora beach club, where I went B2B with Danny O for a special 2 hour set. Until then, enjoy these tunes!

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.
