Interview: Mark Knight on Toolroom, Miami and music

Wed 01.04.2009

DJsounds catches up with the Ministry of Sound resident and Toolroom Records boss on tour in the UK to discuss the secrets of his success. Here Mark tells us the story of Toolroom, its off-shoots, developing the brand in clubland and raising his game with edits and even visuals. Other topics on the radar include how Mark organises his DJ sets and the benefits of digital downloads, while the explosive ‘Man With the Red Face’ footage is from last year’s Beatport pool party. This year’s WMC saw Toolroom take over Space and release the Miami09 compilation, which features their 100th release – Faithless’ ‘Music Matters’. Looking ahead, you can continue checking out Mark from Pacha in NYC to Zouk in Singapore, as well as at a host of summer festivals, including Dance Valley, Tomorrowland and SW4. Words: LRC
