Eelke Kleijn, Prok & Fitch, Boris – Toolroom Live 02
After a successful series launch with Weiss, Mark Knight & Adrian Hour, Toolroom is proud to present the next instalment in it’s signature ‘Toolroom Live’ series with mixes from Eelke Kleijn, Boris and Prok & Fitch.
Live 02 picks up where the last album left off, bringing together three rising talents in the world to showcase the spectrum of the labels musical space. Taking the helm this time around, the label welcomes Eelke Kleijn, Prok & Fitch, and Boris to the Toolroom Live squad. Pioneers and legends in their own rights, each artist brings their unique signature sound to the mix, creating a perfect balance of depth, enchanting moments, and straight up dance floor cuts.
Dutch master of melody Eelke Kleijn was tasked with showcasing the deeper side of Toolroom, and listening to the mix It’s obvious to see why Eelke is often referred to as a modern day composer. His two exclusive tracks ‘The Voices’ and ‘Oranje Liefde’ fit like bespoke gloves in the musical odyssey of his mix. Eelke’s carefully crafted approach to composition and production really put him in a league of his own. Including 7 of his own productions seamlessly blended with hand-selected creations from luminaries like Fritz Kalkbrenner, Gabriel Ananda, and Gregor Tresher, this mix takes you on an emotional journey of sound.
Globetrotting duo Prok & Fitch have long been members of the Toolroom family, and were an obvious choice to help spearhead its second Live endeavour. Deftly and smoothly weaving from house to techno, and back again, the energy found in their DJ sets is indisputable. No strangers to the main room sound; their disc is chock full with 4 of their own original productions, including their new album exclusive ‘Tripwire’. Our two tastemakers also meticulously selected tracks from fellow artists Chus & Ceballos, Filterheadz, Traumer, and Technasia to round out their 19 track, masterclass mix.
The finishing touch of the trifecta; techno powerhouse Boris steps up to take care of mixing duties on the final disc. Well known for his legendary parties and extended DJ sets, Boris has been a long time fixture at the biggest clubs in New York City, Miami, and the world. With his recent EP ‘Over It’ on Toolroom Trax still smashing the charts, Boris jumps straight into his mix with his signature chugging sound. Gary Beck, Carlo Lio, Luigi Madonna & Ramiro Lopez are just a little bit of what you can expect on this venture through upfront Techno.
Toolroom Live 02 is out on Toolroom 13th April 2015.
