Our July release celebrates two significant events taking place this month. On July 14th 2015 the inaugural Netlabel Day will take place, and to mark the occasion we are releasing new mixes of one of our oldest and most well known tracks. The same day will see the New Horizons spacecraft reach its closest approach to the dwarf planet Pluto, giving us an opportunity not to be missed to revisit the 1997 Prism track Voyage To Pluto. Both remixes are courtesy of Psychadelik Pedestrian, bringing the original trancecore tempo down to a more respectable pace. The Netlabel Day mix combines dubstep bass growls with crisp, contemporary beats and a melodic, dreamy and uplifting synthesizer lead while retaining the recognisable electronic piano arpeggios. The New Horizons remix slows things down further and introduces bleepy, space age sounds and delay alongside a huge reverberating supersaw lead synth line. Of course, we couldn't miss the opportunity to include a remastered version of the original trancecore mix from 1997 and the popular Dreamworld UK hardcore remix originally released in 2005 which narrowly missed out on a place in our top 20 download chart of all time earlier this year.
To celebrate our tenth anniversary, we revisit our first release. Aerologic have remixed Thirty One, keeping the uplifting trance melodies and adding contemporary EDM beats, bass and stabs. UK hardcore is a style which proved very popular in the early days of Toucan, and is something we admit to have neglected of late! To mark the occasion and put this right, Dreamworld have remixed Formation into a pumping UK hardcore anthem, building up with frenetic beats before breaking into sizzling trance-core stab patterns. We are not going to mess with the formula which has proved so popular for the last decade, so in time-honoured fashion both tracks are of course free to download in high quality mp3 format and available for re-use under a Creative Commons licence...
Prism presents a bouncy hardcore remix of Vibemaster B's Rock Your Body, originally released on the BDW Rekordings netlabel. The remix takes the infectious lead riff from the original track and adds a driving offbeat bassline, squelchy acid riffs, pumping hardcore beats and a smattering of heavily cut up old skool Amen breaks. This full length DJ friendly remix is free to download under a Creative Commons licence.
Dreamworld remix two of JMD's best hard trance tracks in a UK hardcore style. First up is the remix of Polar which features a slamming UK hardcore rhythm, driving bassline, acid sounds and a large catchy trance riff. Also included is a remix of New Beginning, combining huge trance synth stabs, chords and arpeggios with a pounding hardcore beat. Both remixes as usual are full DJ friendly cuts featuring extended intro for mixing.

DJ Kube remixes Excelsior's track with bouncy beats and plenty of melodic synth action. The original piano hardcore mix and Prism remix, both from 1997, have been remastered in their original full length versions for this release.
UK hardcore producer Prism joins forces with funky house maestro Dave Kent for two unusual happy hardcore tracks, featuring pounding hardcore rhythms with funky house guitars and filtered vocals. Both tracks are full, unmixed DJ friendly versions ideal for including in your set.
In May 1997, Prism set out to create one of the happiest, bounciest, most uplifting rave tracks ever recorded. The UK happy hardcore scene was at its peak between 1995 and 1997, with techno stabs, gabba kick drums and frantic piano riffs the norm. Using only a Roland W30 workstation, Prism came up with this track, originally entitled Hard Elements, which was renamed Your Smile and remixed into the well known Blue Album mix in July 1997. Later in the year the track went online and gave Prism his first exposure in the fledgling UK Internet dance scene.
Ten years on, Prism's piano hardcore anthem gets the remix treatment with this special anniversary release. Prism himself presents a happy hardcore remake, with Beat Doctor providing an electro house mix. Both the original Blue Album mix and the 1998 remix are also featured with remastered versions of the full mixes.
