Well-traveled and creatively oiled for the most part of 2012, long serving Italian Tech House advocate Stefano Noferini refines his name for quality club grooves with his latest fresh studio offering ‘Room 52’ for Toolroom Records. Dropping among his debut compilation duties for the label’s Toolroom Knights concept, the heavy-set grooves and poignant synth work that dominate ‘Room 52’ show Noferini in a notably modern light while still hammering home the sharp quality that his productions continue to spiral towards. While Tech House may still be a world away for mirroring the popularity of its peak time counterparts, Stefano Noferini shows that the sub-genre is certainly not lacking in stamina amid the 21st century Dance explosion.

Words by Dan Carter

Among the often cheesy European assets and mainstream movements of House music, Italy’s Stefano Noferini has kept it as pure and accessible as possible. Returning to his own Deeperfect Records label for the release of ‘Flash’, Noferini maestro comes with his sights set on the groovy Tech House that he has become synonymous with.

Made up of subtle acid moments, distinct vocal samples and the rhythmic precision and delicate builds to which he calls his speciality, ‘Flash’ is as chunky and rhythmically refined as you would expect from this Italian Tech House maestro.

Like last year’s escapades are Toolroom now embellishing the Fall of 2011 with the second issue of their characteristic Amsterdam Dance Event compilation. Having the fifth anniversary of their Toolroom Knights shows in full swing and a year of countless triumphs behind them, the Maidstone-based release platform comes off months of spectacular endeavours that includes the releases of DJ Boris’ I Can’t Wait, Fedde Le Grand’s Metrum and So Much Love singles and Mark Knight’s own Beautiful World and the charitably released remix on You’ve Got The Love to present us the massive, new compilation, which comprises a whooping 10 previously unreleased hit singles from numerous wildly recognized producers.

The headlining position falling into favour of label honcho Mark Knight and Manuel De La Mare’s Snapshot, made up by the highly-prosperous and popular fluctuation in between big room synth chords and twisted, but solid tech beats, the distinguished John Dahlback also returns to the label for the follow-up to the single from Toolroom’s first Ibiza compilation this year – Work It Out. Having defined himself as a producer of the highest notch with his throbbing and uniquely knitted records, Dahlback shows his skillful and creative production ability yet again as the progressive chord array of Phoenix is released as the more harmonic piece of the Amsterdam-tributed, tech-dominated collection of anthems.

Brought back to fire away a 2011 rework out of his tremendous drum and piano-driven Marsch Marsch single from last Fall is Thomas Gold, whom is currently riding on the infectious wave of positive vibes from his recent Alive single alongside Dirty South. Ever the mastermind of club gems, the rise of Gold, that was initiated with the launch of What’s Up (with Alex Kenji) in post-summer of 2010, has literally been indispensable. Merely a few months after his aforementioned instalment on Spinnin Records, the inspiring German could proudly showcase his release marathon that included nothing but full-on hits such as Areena, AGORa, the remix on We Want Your Soul and the Toolroom piece, which is now well on its way back to make another go at a pole positioning on the charts. Not only was 2010 a complete and utter success for the golden producer, but as this year was kicked off massively with the outing of his monstrous remix on Blow Up with Axwell, the expectations from all progressive-house heads as to whether his talent was sufficient enough to establish him amongst the very forefronters of clubland. And now, a bare 8 months and prominent remixes of Lady Gaga’s Judas, Reach Out and Set Fire To The Rain later, Gold contemporizes one of his first break-through singles which is still being supported strongly by the likes of the entire Swedish House Mafia into a killer cut, hard to equal. Having the storming and long-anticipated Sing 2 Me release coming up on Axtone, the Disney-inspired drum lines and common synth filled chords are pulled out and back in the game.

To round off the Toolroom’s essential 2011 pick in preparation for the Holland festival in late October, Koen Groeneveld provides his Dutch tech twist with Richard Dinsdale instilling some disco tinged house. Stefano Noferini, D Ramirez, Rene Amesz, Filthy Rich and Alex Kenji cover the groovier side of Toolroom to complete a peerless package of huge ADE hits and future chart-toppers.
