Toolroom label head and Ministry of Sound resident Mark Knight will mix the next edition of the Toolroom Knights series.
This mix sees the DJ/producer spanning the entirety of the house continuum. The first CD of the double-disc set sees European, UK, and US artists nestle up against one another, bridging the gap between soul and tech with tracks from the likes of Dennis Ferrer, Quarion and an album exclusive from Nic Fanciulli. Over on the latter half, however, Knight gets a bit darker with some tribal grooves provided by ATFC’s 'Bad Weed' and the aptly named 'Go Deep' from Chris Special & Adam S.
As Knight tells it, "I wanted to create a shortened edition of my epic main room sets at Ministry of Sound, building from very soulful to full-on techno, and with CD2 give people a taste of what’s now and future on my label Toolroom."
For further elucidation on the mix, Toolroom has put together a video that tracks the making of Toolroom Knights from start to finish.
