Mark Knight And James Hurr Unleash Pumping Tune ‘You Take Me Higher’

A collaboration from two long-time partners in crime has just hit the stores.

Great news comes today from the world of Tech House, in particular, that pumping House sound we all grew to know and love — and we get to hear it tonight from one of its trailblazers. We’re talking about the Toolroom sound, the one that can’t fail to get a crowd moving. Today, the leading imprint welcomes a track coming from its founder, Mark Knight himself, in tandem with James Hurr, becoming one of the classic collaborating duos of this corner of Dance music.

A powerhouse DJ and Grammy-nominated producer, Mark Knight truly is a Dance music icon. His career, one who’s seen him making music for around 20 years now, has turned him into a living legend status, being the proper spearhead of the Toolroom sound ever since. Chart-topping anthems like ‘Man With The Red Face’ and collaborations with Faithless and Underworld solidify his legacy.

On the other side of the ring, long regarded as one of the go-to producers in the UK electronic scene, James Hurr has made his name as a prolific writer/producer. He’s worked with an impressive roster of A-tier artists, which include Tiësto, Fisher, Armin Van Buuren, Acraze, and many more. Being a Toolroom mainstay for years at this point, a new track from him on the imprint is to be expected — yet never underestimated.

‘You Take Me Higher’

Their latest endeavour comes after conjoint hits like ‘Movin’, ‘Make You Happy’ alongside legend Todd Terry, a cover of the infamous ‘Lady’, and even an earlier release of this year, ‘I Got All This Love’. July’s single, ‘You Take Me Higher‘, sees the lads make fantastic use of the classic Sandy Mercer vocal sample and layer it over a straight-up, Disco-laced House groove, for the ultimate dancefloor weapon.

There’s nothing else to add, it’s a simple formula, but one that works every time, assuming you pull it off correctly. And I wouldn’t doubt one second that these two did. It’s got “summer” written all over it, and we bet this one will be rinsed all across the Northern Hemisphere this season.
