In a world where music is often limited to genre handles and buzz sounds, Mark Knight has proven a rare and wonderful breed of integral house heavyweight. With a career spanning more than a decade and a solid reputation on both the digital market and dance floors across the globe, the Grammy-nominated DJ/producer has never rested on the laurels of being one of the industry’s most respected and accomplished UK players to date.
Armed with a musical library that knows no boundaries, a consistent run of hits and chart-topping ventures alike, the success of Knight’s recording career is matched only by the credibility and integrity maintained throughout his discography to date. Heard through a spread of popular releases (‘Man With red Face,’ ‘Alright’) and high profile remixes (Basement Jaxx, Chris Malinchak), further work alongside both Faithless and Underworld has sealed a diverse musical heritage for the accomplished producer. It’s music for passion, not numbers, and its what Mark Knight does best.
Ten years strong and responsible for championing a wealth of talent from across the industry spectrum, the award-winning Toolroom Records remains a key component in the life and times of Mark Knight. Having celebrated a decade of embracing new sounds, faces and places through its vast label and live ventures, 2014 has seen the brand focus on the developments that will shape the next ten years to be just as exciting.
With a plethora of exciting global festivals, residencies and Toolroom showcases planned for the year ahead, the year ahead remains a promising year for the British heavyweight. As his Toolroom Knights Radio concept continues to gain traction across more than 60 countries to an audience in excess of five million, Sirius XM, Radio FG and Beat 1009 are just a few of the places where the increasingly popular show can be heard. Add a third instalment of Mark’s Bullets EP series, high profile remixes and collaborations across the board and the story speaks for itself: this passion over fashion approach makes Mark Knight an indispensable asset to modern dance music.
