Holmes Price has had a huge string of respected and successful releases under his considerably sized belt. He caused a storm with a ready supply of rhythmic, high-energy tracks that saw releases on Continental, Mr.Carter, Heavy Disco and Blackstrobe. Holmes marks his Media Blackout outing with a trademark rip-roaring, rhythmic master class. A generous serving of house rhythms, tuned percussion loops, and sustained pads and are expertly combined with a breakdown that subtly brings in elements from Holmes Price's original work, before returning to full rhythmic force, providing another example of his unique talents.
From production central of Tel Aviv, B1ZB1Z need no introduction to those following the output of one of multicultural finest nu disco/deep house exponents. With great production credits to their name for the likes of Droid Bishop, Nick Force, Thomas Tonfeld and many more. Returning to Media Blackout the B1Z boys bring their considerable skill set to "Toy", making full use of their distinctive sound by reinterpreting the melodic elements with wonderful sensitivity and expertise.
The third rework comes from none other than London based Funkovsky who is immersed in a clutch of high-caliber labels with a refreshing verve and spirit. For his "Toy" interpretation, he provides a strong crisp beat that gives force to a warm bass groove, as an ominous tone is provided by a deliciously deep string progression that reaches a crescendo against a collage of effects and crystalline lead motif. Melodic fragments trill in the foreground, as the third movement emerges triumphant against a backdrop of head-swaying percussive rhythms, before falling away and finding their way back inside the bouncing rhythmic and melodic bed that form the track's basis.
Last but not least we have the great Turkish duo Deepjack and Mr.Nu, delivering a housey remix with a big bassline and voice cuts. The duo's house music passion is in full effect as the track rises and falls in intensity with effortless ease, combined with rhythms that will have dance floors full of joy unbounded. Deep and sexy is the name of the game with their rework which delivers a bumping, grooving, jackin' house feel that will keep you moving all night long! Essential stuff that should not be missed!
