Onefold Records look back at a year full of premium quality House music. Social media addicts are keen to point what a bad year 2016 was. Perhaps they didn’t Shaun Dean’s Speed Garage influenced ‘Understand’ or the rapturous pianos and vocals of Alex price & Xorael ‘One More Night’
Maybe they missed Laibert’s crossover anthem ‘Paradise’ or Tempo Elektrik, Pkay & Martin Carr’s pure 90’s ‘Going Out’
Among the 16 huge tracks by the likes of Emeskay, Sweet LA, Evo & RST, and Chris Sammarco are plenty of reasons to think positive about the year gone.
We got Bass Music bangers galore from Jaded, ENGELHART, Two Rhodes, Craig Robinson and more!!
