EDX - Party Of Politics [TOOL085/012]

Maurizio Colella aka EDX has climbed the ladder of house music notoriety in record time helped by his eponymous productions.

The Italian born producer and DJ now based in Switzerland exploded onto the scene in 2007 with his remix of Dubfire’s “Roadkill” for Toolroom. Since then he has remixed the likes of Deadmau5, Armand van Helden, Axwell, Steve Angello, Sucker DJs, Michael Procter, Kool & The Gang, Lauryn Hill and Armin van Buuren, to name but a few. His recent mix of Funkagenda’s “Breakwater” on Toolroom also featured in Beatport’s Top 50 Bestsellers of 2009.

His unique sound and the musicality of his work set him apart in a world of formulaic house music and has undoubtedly established him as one of the hottest names on the scene which is why Toolroom are pleased to announce EDX’s return to Toolroom Records with his original release, “Party Of Politics”!!.

Building on solid four to the floor beats and heavily swung hats, EDX’s mastery of chord changes and atmospheric pads with a spoken vocal floating on top creates a dancefloor winner that will appeal to a wide audience from progressive to tech house fans of the label.

House music legend Pete Heller steps up with a fantastic interpretation of the original, it’s a haunting slice of main room action with subtle chord changes and a rolling groove.

The Mark Mendes remix leans toward that ‘Mannheim’ sound which is massive on the cooler underground floors, with a prominent rolling bass line, heavy on percussion and excellent use of the filter to create the tension as the bass drops back in.

Still flying high from the success of his debut on Toolroom, Pete Griffiths steps up to the plate making good use of the vocal and original parts to create an intense euphoric remix. Pete’s signature sound is evolving nicely he is definitely a name to watch out for.
