Between a consistent slew of successful releases and another storming season at Ibizan super-club Space, Toolroom Records could do no wrong in 2012. But never an outfit to rest upon their industrious laurels, the road to their 10th anniversary sees Mark Knight’s eclectic imprint embrace Spanish house master Iban Reus in a bid to rekindle the energy of summer clubbing with “Crazy Circus.”

Dealing in upfront grooves and funky instrumental elements throughout, Reus channels a strong Balearic flare through the more traditional hallmarks of European tech house for a hip-shaker that immediately stirs memories of a bygone idyllic season. Ornamented with tactical bass licks and immersed in sample work throughout, “Crazy Circus” provides a fool-proof survival plan that is certain to keep clubland ticking right into 2013.
