Robert Owen’s signature vocal lines meander around the sturdy groove brilliantly, as baroque variations in the structure and subtle percussive additions create a dark, enticing house cut.

5. Magic Number, Angela Armstrong – Coming Back To Me Part 2 (Atjazz Remixes) (Numb Records)

Ross can often be seen getting drunk/ playing bass with Atjazz and both Ross (bass) and Tom (drums) play for the awesome Si Tew, (Atjazz Record Company) Atjazz’s remix is an instant classic. From the moment the relentless syncopated bass push starts, you know this is the tune of the night. It’s deep, it’s dirty and it retains the quirky soulful vocals of the original.

8. Rulers Of The Deep – Delano (Tohuwabohu Music)
RULERS OF THE DEEP, House pioneers from Estonia are back!
Their radio show Tallinn Express has long been a staple diet of the Estonian underground and recently the duo found time to get back together to work their magic on the production side. It’s been a few years now since their last album ‘Untitled Secret’ dropped on Manchester Underground Music, so it’s a welcome return for ROTD. Fans of their sound will not be disappointed with this first offering to be unleashed from their recent studio sessions.
‘Delano’ features the standard ROTD trademarks as they deliver their classy hybrid of Deep/Tech. For many the clue is in the title as to where the inspiration was drawn. As the pair were discussing – “we had good fun recalling some of the best moments from (Miami) WMC and it seemed that all the great action took place about more than decade ago”. “…perhaps we are just grown-ups now, but perhaps there was something else in that era of deep dark and soulful hearts, so as we see and feel it, “Delano” is clearly inspired from the heydays of the early 2000s”.
A strong return from Rulers Of The Deep with ‘Delano’!
9. John Julius Knight – Hustle & Flow (BlackDeep)
10. Blaq Soul – Vision (Remixes By Karizma & Blaq Soul) (Deeper Shades Recordings)

Karizma’s remix shows off his trademark – BEATS FOR DAYS! The Eyecee Dubba builds and builds and builds and will mesmerize every dancer on the floor!
Blaq Soul’s remix strips his own original to the core and kicks up the energy with heavy beat accents and a bassline filling the room with low frequencies.
11. Pete Griffiths & Cevin Fisher – Chicago (label)
Toolroom’s very own Pete Griffiths teams up with house music heavyweight, Cevin Fisher to bring you ‘Chicago’; a shining tribute to the spiritual birth place of house.

On this latest offering Pete teams up with US legend Cevin Fisher who is no stranger to success with both a tour schedule and list of chart successes that go way back when. Productions like ‘You Got Me Burning Up’ and ‘The Freaks Come Out’ were international hits tackling both the US billboard and UK national charts and inspiring a whole generation of house followers.
Together on ‘Chicago’, Pete Griffiths and Cevin Fisher have captured the spirit of a time when legends like Frankie Knuckles and Larry Levan were spearheading the transformation clubs witnessed from disco into the birth of house music, as the lyrics say, ‘They gave us something to move to; they gave us something to groove to’. On remix duties one of the hottest new acts on the underground scene Weiss has created a jackin’ tribute laden with old school drums and rumbling bass, London’s man of the moment Vanilla Ace turns in a slick and uber cool deeper take and Italy’s finest Federico Scavo delivers what he does best, a pumping refit ready for the dance floor.
