Mark Knight & Adrian Hour Feat. Indiana – Dance On Your Heart (Original Mix)
2015 was the year Toolroom Records upped their game at every possible juncture. With an incredible balance of stamina for both its mother label and the recently reformed Toolroom Trax imprint, Argentian newcomer Adrian Hour remained a crucial and consistently delivering asset to both label’s roster. Having linked up with label boss Mark Knight for ‘Suzee‘ back in January, the duo returns alongside Indiana for a fresh and more accessible stab at their modern club getup.
Mark Knight is no stranger to opening new and accessible strands of house music. His reputation has somewhat been built on being a middle-ground master, but one with the rare ability to win the underground crowds over when he pleases. For ‘Dance On My Heart,’ the duo re-contextualises the idea of a crossover record in a dignified way. There’s no obvious radio pull or cheesy bends towards the masses, but this noticeably restrained side to Adrian Hour is also an inherently satisfying one, though wouldn’t supplement his harder techno tendencies for a second. Fans who have found solstice in the label’s return to straight up club records may not fall head over heels with this one, but you can’t fault Knight and co for keeping us guessing within the modern musical landscape.
