Not many imprints could topple the compilation giant known as Toolroom Records. The label has the game on lock, and the next issue in line will see them point to the most accomplished releases of the year for the deep house heads. With its whopping 57-track list and three accompanying DJ mixes, Deep House 2016 shines a light on all loci of the genres. From the loungey, blissed-out grooves to the darker and driving main-room vibes, it is all being covered and conveniently packaged together in one place to save you the hassle. In it, you will find the year’s most standout bits from the latest and greatest, including Detroit Swindle, Weiss, Yotto, Purple Disco Machine, ANOTR—and the list goes on.
To keep things fresh, the label has also thrown in an untouched exclusive from the hands of one hotly tipped duo from the UK, Mandal & Forbes. They put their black-and-white skills to the test with “Sapphire,” a piano-driven gem ready for club appraisal. Wigwagging piano chords flicker out in front, building up into a smooth rolling rhythm that will slap a smile on your face the entire way through.
