 [content title="Summary" label="Overall Score"]17 Steps is about to unleash their excellent compilation Floor to Floor and in our hands we have the first top notch sampler. If you adore futuristic techno meets house sounds then this top compilation is for you. Velvit with Looking Glass provide a very nice tribalish tech house anthem with strong percussions, soaring synths and whispering vocals on the background. Hypnotic grooves that push and push even deeper. Dusky with Mount Belzoni go back to Detroit heritage with classic organs and basslines along with spooky vocal samples and moody atmosphere with touch of suspense and horror. Tooth Decay is tough old school techno affair with rave like synthy riff that performs a very memorable dominating highly addictive melody.  Trevino with ‘Ojak' is an early 90's infused futuristic punchy booming track that smashes the speakers so be sure to play it loud and proud. Techno with difference! #PureGold Love It[/content]
