Toucan Music (Various Artists): Best Bytes Volume 1
British netlabel Toucan Music was founded in 2004 from the remains of the Frantik Music website, which had been promotic dance music online since 1997. Taking its influence from the 12" vinyl scene, Toucan have released extended DJ friendly singles online since 2005 in a variety of dance genres including house, trance, electro, breaks and chillout. This 19 track compilation showcases some of the highlights from the netlabel's singles collection with tracks from 2002 right through to 2012. The album features the whole range of genres promoted by Toucan Music, from the spine-tingling chillout of Redmann's "Born into it" and relaxing ambient orchestral pads of Psychadelik Pedestrian's "Night Beach" through to the pumping house of Beat Doctor, screaming acid riffs of Dave Kent and trance of JMD. All of the tracks are included in full length DJ friendly format, and the older material has been remastered especially for this compilation.
