After over a decade in the music industry, Toolroom is going back to its roots. As a tastemaker of the new direction, the label has released the first chapter of the \’Toolroom Live\’ series.

Featuring 58 house tracks and 3 exclusive mixes by EDM heavyweights Weiss, Adrian Hour and Mark Knight who show of the true power of house music..

“This album series will represent our new musical spectrum – and ‘Toolroom Live 01’ really achieves that.” – Mark Knight

To get a good feel of the quality of these tracks, I recommend checking out all three mixes.

No longer an obscure name, Weiss hit the charts with ‘My Sister’ being played by everyone from Loco Dice to Groove Armada. As with this track, his mix on ‘Toolroom Live 01’ is created by and for the lover of real House music, referencing the past and looking to the future. Featuring tracks by the likes of MK, Hot Since 82, Harry Romero, Bontan, Tube & Berger and Doorly, alongside a brand new exclusive from Weiss himself, ‘I Believe’, this is a mix that’s all about craftsmanship; it’s about the emotions that the tracks evoke; it’s about a great passion for House music.

At the other end of the spectrum, Adrian Hour is no stranger to this ethos. Well regarded by the likes of Carl Cox and the Suara team for his jaw dropping productions, he infuses his tracks and Toolroom Live mix with an indescribable quality. Adrian Hour deftly weaves his way through the many shades of techno, incorporating new tracks from Pirupa, Erik Hagleton and Coyu & Ramiro Lopez, as well as huge exclusives from himself, D-Unity, Montenegro and more.

Finally, Mark Knight ties the album together with his ability to make memorable main room House music and his talent for creating moments that are reminisced about for months, even years, after the event – and this is the focus of his Toolroom Live mix.

“You know, it is possible to create credible House music that makes people want to party. And to me that’s what Toolroom does best” (Mark Knight).

With new releases from Green Velvet, Harry Romero and Maceo Plex, as well as his own new and exclusive remix of ‘Bat For Lashes’, Mark Knight shows just why he’s at the top of his game.

Complimenting a fresh new visual identity and new core artist roster, ‘Toolroom Live 01’ is an exciting development in the label’s history.
