British duo Prok & Fitch have long been provocateurs of elegant house music alongside Roger Sanchez’s Stealth Records imprint. Packed with robust brass leads and sweeping grooves, “Here Comes The Noise” marks the perfect follow-up to last years’ chart-topping “Symphony”, offering a track decked in speculative sun kissed vibes that is sure to make the rounds throughout the summer clubbing season.

The ties between house institution Roger Sanchez and British duo Prok & Fitch run deep, dating back to the latter’s breakthrough release “Outro Lugar” on Sanchez’s Stealth Records. Six years later, the artists have made their collaborative debut with a jackin’ tech track out this week on the same label where it all started. Apparently “Take You There” was conceived when all of the above were hanging together in Ibiza, which helps explain its smooth synths, laid-back vocals, and buoyant vibe. The release also includes a Dub Mix and a more groove-driven Prok & Fitch Floorplay Remix. Catch them all on Beatport today.

Party squad Toolroom Knights is coming in hot with an expansive new compilation mixed by Forza — the Italian trio known individually as Alex Kenji, Manuel de la Mare, and Luigi Rocca. The massive compilation racks up the count to 43 tracks across three different albums and gives us an excellent review of a range of tech and acid house cuts from the last year. If that wasn’t enough, Forza also treats us to five new exclusives from each of the three producers, respectively. Other major additions to the compilation include Prok & Fitch‘s “Symphony,” Alex Kenji’s remix of Sander van Doorn‘s “Outro,” Joris Voorn‘s “Goodbye Fly,” Shawnee Taylor and Sympho Nympho‘s “Colors,” and Reboot’s “Enjoy Music” with a DJ Chus 2012 re-edit. Check out the five exclusives courtesy of Toolroom Records below.
Merely a few hours after touching down in Miami we headed over to the Arkadia pool at the Fontainebleau, and while most people were sitting down for lunch, we were basking in sun and beats of Roger Sanchez’ Stealth Miami party. Sebastien Drums, Adrian Lux, Funkagenda, and several other openers warmed up the crowd and decks with a variety of not-easily-identified tracks — which is somewhat refreshing given the insane amount of overlap between most EDM sets these days. As much fun as it is to listen to “Levels,” “One,” “Take Over Control,” and other similarly popular songs, it’s often more fun to have to turn to a fellow partygoer and ask, “WHAT THE FMIF IS THIS?”
“You should feel what I feel, you should take what I take.”
Prok & Fitch team up with Juan Kidd to create “Star Guitar” a track that blends both tech and tribal vibes that mesh perfectly with some sensitive vocals. The guitar oriented build up gives the track a nice heavier bassline which then gives way to the tribal drums that completely take over the track. This is a perfect track for opening DJs to use for warming up the crowd, it not only sets the mood, but can be used to build up the energy in just the perfect way.

Three big names (Axwell, Prok & Fitch and Patric La Funk) plus one huge bootleg equals numerous times played on repeat. This is a huge track. Listening to one good bootleg a day keeps the doctor away (that’s how the saying goes right?)!
Our top 50 continues with track’s 31-40. These tunes just get tougher to pick as we go deeper into the rankings..however as usual Dancing Astronaut never fails. We would love to hear your comments and thoughts about where songs should go in the top 50 and why you think that way. Make sure to check out 41-50 too.
