[V4] Toolroom Sampler Vol 4
Vinyl record
4 Tracks - 4 Artist Of Pumpin Vocal House / Tech House & Deeper Cuts - Next up on Toolroom’s 4-track vinyl sampler series is a tasty collab from label founder, Mark Knight and dance music royalty, Armand van Helden, a fresh new edit of a revered club weapon from Julio Navas, Gustavo Bravetti and David Amo, Kiss FM regular, majestic and Sydney-native Alex Preston.

Up first label boss, Mark Knight enlists Grammy nominated Armand van Helden for their debut collaboration, 'The Music Began To Play'. Kicking off with a hard-hitting house groove and electrified bassline that drives the record, before dropping into the track's golden moment and sampling the 1979 classic disco cut 'I Don't Need No Music' by T.J.M; a gem of a record that encapsulates both Mark and Armand’s love for classic cuts.

Next up, a record that became a cult hit of the underground and one that defines the true sound of Toolroom's heritage, Julio Navas, Gustavo Bravetti and David Amo’s 'Raw'. Refreshed for 2022, we see one of France's hottest exports, Tony Romera, deliver a high energy, club focused remix of 'Raw', bringing the classic club record back to dancefloors and sound systems across the globe!

Up next is another heater from Majestic, who debuts on Toolroom with ‘Annie’. Recapping one of the hottest summers on record, Majestic embodies the Balearic, Ibizan heat, sampling Kid Creole & the Coconuts 1982 hit, 'Annie I’m Not Your Daddy', turning a slice of calypso / disco, into a club ready record for the dancefloor. From the brass melody to the hooky guitar riff, majestic lays down his signature style with a Groove Armada-esque vibe throughout.

Rounding things off is label favourite, Alex Preston with his unique blend of 4 to the floor dance music and live funk guitar riffs that have swept through clubs, moving feet, and bringing those feel-good vibes. Ticking all the right boxes on this one, 'Hunching' kicks off with its infectious groove and bassline, throwing in some lush strings, guitar flits and an 80's inspired saxophone break that adds some serious flavour to the record.

Opened up for W.A.S.P. and Ratt. Then that band disbanded, and he put this band together Mickey Knight. It was right around ’84-’85 and the scene was pulsing, all the hair bands. So, Poison, Ratt, all those bands were selling out and the whole scene was starting — and really the Sunset Strip scene was starting to happen. Mickey Knight never got a record deal, but he went on to do City Slick, and then eventually Bang Tango.

Polish Reggae from tricity. Source: ______________________ 4. MAJESTIC Neo-Prog • United States Majestic biography MAJESTIC was formed as a one-man project in the US by Jeff Hamel. Hamel started playing guitar at the age of 14 and began his musical career as the guitarist for the 80's progressive metal band OSMIUM. Hamel then studied recording technology at the Record Institute of Detroit. In 2004, Hamel started his MAJESTIC project. As a multi-instrumentalist, Hamel took on the task of composing and recording all of the music himself, while occasionally seeking the vocal talents of other artists. He released the first MAJESTIC album "Descension" in 2007. He followed this up with "String Theory" in 2008, bringing in a guest vocalist on one track and a guest flautist on another. At the beginning of 2009, he released a compilation CD, "Majestic Sampler 09", which included tracks from the first two CDs as well as unreleased songs. In 2008, Hamel began performing with vocalist and lyricist Jessica Rasche, who had been singing since the age of nine. The two released the album "Arrival" in 2009. The band's influences include YES, GENESIS, DREAM THEATER, RIVERSIDE, AYREON, KING CRIMSON and DEEP PURPLE, as well as more 80's-oriented fare, such as Pat Benetar and HEART. Albums: Descension - 2007 String Theory - 2008 Arrival - 2009 V.O.Z. - 2012 source From, the ultimate progressive rock music website _____________________ 5. Majestic (Electronic Artist) Majestic came into existence in 1999 and produced the debut album No Moving Parts in 2000. The name was inspired by the alleged secret government agency in charge of ‘handling’ UFO reports the ‘Majestic 12’ and this first album reflected that theme. The style of music, although essentially electronic, was also intended to be experimental and avant garde. This has not essentially changed, even though Majestic now has a slightly more sophisticated sound compared to it’s very humble beginnings. The next album in 2001, Last Man on Earth, dealt with more terrestrial themes of personal emotion. Once again, very sample led but with more layering of instruments, some of them very conventional in sound. This was then closely followed in 2002 by Internet Generation, which began to form the true sound of Majestic in both musical and production style. It also had a multi meaning concept, as samples were lifted off the internet and the album had subtle references interlaced with some hidden social comment. It would be logical then to produce the album UBIK later that year. Inspired by Phillip K Dick it introduced more funky sounds and lower level tones similar to the very first album. 2003 and it was the turn of the ‘lost album’ entitled Glorious Moments, so called as all the existing recordings were lost during a studio move but it was later painfully remastered. After a 3 year break, a return with Identity which went back to a few basics, while introducing a slightly different sound but very closely followed by Fly, which was much more like the sort of material that we were introduced to from the UBIK album. Another 2 year gap and a new fresh sound with the Possession EP, which used elements of techno not previously explored. This freshness was followed by Special in 2009, which is a combination of melodic electro and the more Avant-Garde, typical of most of the music produced by Majestic. This is rapidly followed in the Loaded Gun EP, which features the more upbeat electro tracks from the album in re-mix form. I Was Majestic was the very first compilation album to kick off 2011. This primarily features a selection of hand picked tracks from the first four albums. Industry Part 1-5 released in September 2011 is the first ever music video EP from Majestic which is only available in video form with no audio EP equivalent. The concept is that the visuals belong with the music and are considered an assemble set piece. Various delays and distractions made this project nearly four years to make. October 2011 then sees the release of Gauge, the first truly ‘non-musical’ approach using a whole array of metallic sounds and heavy industrial soundscapes. This album marks the beginning of a new era, although this album is a unique set piece reflecting a brief departure from the other previous albums. ©Module 8 Music Recordings (UK) ©Remote Viewing Media ©Kevin J Hatton Source: module8 Music Recordings Remote Viewing Media: Read more on User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply.
