Toolroom has been on a tear with these Miami-centric releases, and we’re happy to snag a piece of the action.  Today, we’re premiering a new track from Joeski — “This Is Acid.”  This upbeat tune is exactly what it claims to be, acid house at its best.  An infectious melody plays along with the crunchy synths, as the eerie vocals repeatedly ensure that this is, in fact, acid.  Enjoy this one, and head over to Toolroom Records to listen to the rest of their Miami compilations.

It’s a big month for electronic music, and Toolroom Records are certainly doing their part to keep the party going.  Their latest release comes from Oscar L and a panel of many other up-and-coming producers.  “Rhythm Distrikt 09” is a compilation of 10 exclusive tracks to get the dance floor moving, but we’re here to focus on “Switch On The Love.”  Classic house vocals meet tech house construction, creating a really cool crossover vibe from Oscar L.  There’s no doubt you’ll be hearing this in Miami, and all across the world over the impending festival and party season.  If you like what you hear, make sure to grab the whole compilation on Beatport now.

Just in time for the Winter Music Conference in Miami, the crew at Toolroom Records has put together a doozy of a compliation album.  9 cuts from Cyclist5 ReasonsBoys Get Hurt and more make up a seriously groovy pool party arsenal.  From more laidback vibes from Framewerk, to bigger dance sounds from LeSonic & Matvey, this album will keep you going from front to back.  Listen below, and lets get stoked for WMC!

weiss - our love ep

I’m very excited to premiere a huge track from London based producer Weiss, today.  “The Light” comes as a b-side addition to “Our Love” — premiered by Mixmag just last week.  Released via Toolroom Records, these two tracks make up the “Our Love” EP, and both carry a certain classic house vibe and appeal.  The beauty of “The Light” is it’s simplicity, in which the vocal samples play nicely with a full, dance floor friendly bass line.  Stream the track below, and read more to check out our exclusive interview with Weiss after the jump.

Our buddy Doorly has been on another tear this summer — whipping up a GREAT new EP with the legend, Cajmere, for Cajual Records along with 5 new originals included in a new Toolroom Knights compilation, all while maintaining his annual summer residency at Ibiza Rocks. This week, the multifaceted producer continues his streak as we hear an exclusive preview of his new remix of Harry Romero‘s Ibiza anthem, “Tania.” Drifting the Balearic classic a little bit towards the deep end, Doorly creates a reimagined version that evokes a sense of late night/early morning play while preserving the original vibe of the early 00s House mover. This remix, along with two others from Taras Van De Voorde and Romero himself, will be available via Toolroom Records on July 28th.

Catch Doorly play alongside dirtybird boss, Claude VonStroke, this Saturday in Los Angeles at Exchange LA!


Over the weekend Pete Tong and his worldwide broadcast on BBC Radio 1 debuted a massive remix from the Toolroom Records head honcho, Mark Knight. The Basement Jaxx and their new tune, “Never Say Never,” was the poison of choice for Knight as he induces a whirlpool in the deep end with a bass synth medley thats dance floor ready at first chord. Get familiar, dance a bit, and cop it HERE.


This Saturday, Mark Knight stops at Exchange in Downtown Los Angeles on his Road To Ibiza tour, bringing his Toolroom Records label in tow with special guest Weiss. While Mark runs the main room, GDD will be running the downstairs gallery all night with sets from Troy Kurtz, Shae B, Coastin, and The Interns.

Listen to some tunes you probably will hear on Saturday night…

2013 marks the 10-year anniversary of Toolroom Records — the UK-based imprint founded by the legendary Mark Knight. To celebrate the seminal benchmark in the label’s history, Toolroom has gone back through the years and handpicked 100 tracks from the back catalogue for a historical compilation of massive proportions.

Additionally, Toolroom has selected a number of all-star singles to re-release along with remixes, including this 2006 smash from Dave Spoon titled “At Night.” Spoon, now known to most “new” dance fans as Shadow Child, has called upon fellow Brit T.Williams to help him remix the Electro/House/Tech crossover hit, adding in a fresh bassline and some Garage percussion.

Find a ton of great content on Toolroom Ten here, and have a listen to the new remix below.

Our mate Doorly is back at it with an exclusive track for Toolroom Records‘ 2013 Ibiza Compilation. On his Soundcloud he says he was going for something a little tougher, and the industrial/techy synth line certainly speaks volumes to that. Anxious sirens scattered throughout build anticipation as analog sounds creep up in the background to bring the track to its climax. Its anti-drop fits perfectly with the minimalistic vibes this track gives off, and be sure to cop the single on Doorly’s trackitdown page.
