Toolroom Sampler Vol. 12


13 in stock


Kicking things off on Toolroom’s next 4-track vinyl sampler series is a record we are immensely proud to be releasing. Following the tragic news that legendary US vocalist Kathy Brown is fighting stage 4 cancer, we wanted to give something back to an artist who musically we have all grown up with, and respect greatly. With all profits going to Kathy’s ‘GoFundMe’ campaign to help pay for her health care fees, in the quest to get Kathy back on the road to a full recovery. The record itself oozes fun and good times, which is what Kathy’s music has always been about. Wh0, Mark Knight & James Hurr provide the backing whilst Kathy’s iconic ‘Turn Me Out’ vocal rides away effortlessly over the top.

Next up a life-long friend of Toolroom since it’s inception and absolute legend of the electronic music scene, Shadow Child debuts on the label with ‘Rising High’. His career within this alias spans an impressive 12 years, kicking things off back in 2012 with ‘String Thing’; a record snapped up by Claude von Stroke’s Dirytbird label that simply took the dance world by storm. From that point onwards a consistent flow of strong releases have appeared from his shadowy lair and been unleashed onto the dancefloors of the world to devastating effect. ‘Rising High’ fuses all of Shadow Child’s passions; old skool rave, techno and let’s not forget that incredible vocal sample from ‘The Beloved’. A modern-day house record with a nod to the past, this one will appeal to DJ’s and radio folk alike!

Our next track is a super exciting collab from house music hero Low Steppa and Tony Romera, who is shaping up to be one of the most exiting up and coming prospects on the circuit. Low Steppa enjoyed an incredible 2023 with sold out shows all over the world and releases on key imprints such as Defected, Armada and his own Simma Black. Off the back of his overall Beatport #1 with us last year, Tony recently signed into a 5 single deal with Toolroom and is a huge priority for the label, he is rapidly climbing the ranks with solid releases on Solotoko and Black Book and has a US tour alongside fellow up and coming Toolroom talent, Crusy, already penned for Summer 2024. This record is a straight up, no nonsense club track with an infectious vocal that’s garnering support from heavyweight DJ’s such as Dom Dolla, Dombresky and John Summit.

Last but not least, Maur join the Toolroom camp. This exciting duo have cemented a name for themselves as one of the most exciting new dance acts to emerge from the UK in recent years. They have already worked with the scene’s elite including Solardo, Goodboys and most recently, Becky Hill on her brand new single ‘Never Be Alone’. They amassed almost 30m streams last year alone across key platforms and graced the decks at the legendary Tomorrowland festival last Summer. Maintaining incredible melody throughout with that signature synth sound, ‘Disco Tool’ is another dance floor weapon to add to the ever-growing Maur armoury!
