Underworld For Mark Knight Album
EXCLUSIVE! DJ talks talks Kylie and Toolroom Recrods turning ten years old...
Having collaborated with the Born Slippy producers in the past for releases such as Ten and Downpipe and Skin on Nothing Matters Mark is "really excited" about finishing off the LP.
"There's some stuff with Underworld and stuff with Skin from Skunk Anansie and I did a track with Si from the Audio Bullys so there's some different artists on there," he revealed.
With a working title of Life At 30,000 Feet the Toolroom Records boss thinks the album is "nearly there" and should be out at "the beginning of next year."
Mark added: "I've been talking a good album for the last 2 or 3 years but we're very close to finishing it and I'm really excited cos its very different for me you know people can really expect something right out of the box and it's taken a while to craft it because of so much touring and things but I'm looking forward to what people say about it."
The DJ/producer who's Kylie Minogue sampling Your Love reached No.1 on the Beatport House Chart earlier this year also told us about what inspired the track.
"Well the weird thing is I actually remixed that record originally so I had the parts on my computer and I always had it in my head that it would translate. I mean a great hook translates and transcends any genre and I sort of always wanted to do and i thought the way music was moving I thought now's the time to do it.
On the male vocal over the track her revealed: "Initially i tried to use Kylie's parts but I just couldn't get it to work so I had a cheeky beer and went into the studio and recorded the vocals myself and yeah it works!"
This year his record label Toolroom celebrates its tenth anniversary which Mark couldn't be more 'chuffed' about:
"Did I ever think Toolroom was gonna be ten? Well we hoped so at the beginning, you know it was always about playing the long game really. We had a business plan and a strategy that wasn't instant success so yeah I mean we hoped to be 10 years old but I'm sort of bowled over with the success we've had. It's an amazing achievement i think, we're really chuffed."
He continue: "It's a very pivotal time for us you know, it's been a great ten years and that's been fantastic but it's all about the next ten years - what we're gonna do next what we're gonna say.
"There's a few acts we're really concentrating on - a guy called Bontan out of the UK, another guy called Vice out the UK, Prok & Fitch two unsung British heroes we're gonna be putting a lot of effort into them, a guy from Argentina, Adrian Hour, loads of new acts so you know watch this space for the future superstars."
Mark Knight hosts Toolroom Knights every Monday this summer at Eden, Ibiza.
