Mike Vale & Simon Doty – Revelation (Original Mix)
Toolroom Records has long kept with the cutting edge of European tech house, not to mention its overlooked international advocates. Slovenia’s Mike Vale has been no exception to this trend, joining Canadian peer and returning label contributor Simon Doty for a Miami-formed match across the continents of the utmost relevance to global house music in 2014. As much as certain media outlets got the diagnosis horribly wrong, there was a certain abundance of ill-produced tech house doing the rounds in 2013. Vale and Doty come forth for Toolroom with the epitome of an antidote, matching forthright production values with infectious instrumental stamina for one of the most memorable key-driven outings of the pre-Miami run. On this occasion, “Revelation” is a self-fulfilling prophecy from a European talent with no shortage of industry stripes and an international peer well worth keeping an eye on from her onwards.
