ATFC is a House music titan. He has worked with a plethora of superstars ranging from Missy Elliot to Faithless with countless top UK singles under his belt and he’s back once again on Toolroom with ‘Tech House Kinda Thing’- His first solo single on the label fresh from his collaboration with studio buddy Gene Farris.
Whilst sampling can be a sticky subject in dance music, ‘Tech House Kinda Thing’ is a fine example of how digging deep and being creative can be hugely rewarding. The vocal sample on this record is from another house titan; Harry Romero. This was taken from an event promo video that Harry recorded himself and posted on his Instagram page. Being the creative soul he is, ATFC heard it, sampled it, brought the idea to a Toolroom writing camp last November, and voila, this record was born!
The record itself is an energetic club workout, produced with the detail and finesse you’d expect from such a legendary producer such as ATFC. With driving rhythms, off beat quirky stabs and that unique, spoken vocal, this really is a special record!
