DJ, Grammy-nominated producer and label owner: Mark Knight is one of the most celebrated electronic artists of his generation. The second highest-selling Beatport artist of all time (with no less than eight No.1’s) his career has spanned close to two decades, with releases on a diverse range of world-leading labels including majors such as Sony, Warner and Parlophone to independent, underground imprints such as Cooking Vinyl, BBE and Elrow as well of course his own Toolroom. In addition, he has produced and written for a huge range of other artists across a variety of genres.
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 anthems (‘Man With The Red Face,’ ‘Alright’, ‘Downpipe’) along with producing bands such as Faithless and Underworld has sealed a diverse musical heritage for the accomplished producer. It’s music for passion, not numbers, and it’s what Mark Knight does best.
Aside from his industry-leading production work on the underground dance scene, Knight has written and produced music for a huge range of globally successful artists, including Calvin Harris, Black Eyed Peas, Dido, David Guetta, J Lo, Flo Rider, Icona Pop and Kylie Minogue.
One of the major developments of Toolroom over the last few years has been the Toolroom Academy. Boasting a suite of courses, educational events and production tools, the Toolroom Academy has become the go-to hub for those wishing to learn about the art of both DJing and producing.
“This milestone is as much about us looking forward, as it is about us celebrating what we’ve achieved. What’s so exciting is that after 15 years we’re at the top of our game – putting on parties across the world and nurturing new talent coming through the ranks. Toolroom 15 is about where we are now as a label, not where we have been. Here’s to the next 15 years together.” Mark Knight
In addition to his musical output, Mark has always been keen to release video documentaries to highlight some of the major projects throughout his career. 2016 for example saw the release of ‘A Year In The Life’: a collection of highlights from Mark’s illustrious career. All proceeds were donated to the children’s charity War Child, while alongside the album, a feature-length fly-on-the-wall documentary - filmed over the space of an entire year – was also released. Then in 2017 he produced Odyssey: a short film that focussed on the art of the extended DJ set. Featuring interviews from some of the DJs and industry figures that fiercely champion the merits of playing all night long, Odyssey was a celebration of giving the music and the DJ room to breathe, and was released to support his global Al Knight Long tour.
Alongside his bountiful studio output, Knight has continued to grow his much loved radio presence, with Toolroom Radio now reaching over 13.5 million people in 60 countries across the world, all tuning in each week to hear Mark’s records of choice, while on iTunes Toolroom Radio was recently named in the top 20 most influential podcast by Digital Music News based on number of subscribers. Knight also remains a firm fixture on the worldwide touring circuit with a number of key residencies around the world under the Toolroom Live banner and performances at dance music bastions Space Ibiza and Amnesia as well as a host of landmark festivals. With all this in mind, it’s no wonder the Toolroom man has deservedly maintained his status as an indispensable asset to modern dance music.
