Toolroom Knights announce details of their first London party for 2010 with Mark Knight & Fedde le Grand, Sat 6th Feb @ Ministry of Sound, London
As THE bleakest month of the year comes to an end and we roll into February it’s time to blow off those post-festive cobwebs, get back on the dance floor and shake a leg to the sounds of Toolroom Knights at Ministry of Sound on Saturday the 6th Feb.
Following their biggest year to date, Toolroom make a welcome return to their London home fired up for 2010, brining a plethora of the label’s finest, including leader of their pack Mark Knight plus a very special performance from Dutch house maestro Fedde le Grand.
After tearing it up in 2009 Mark Knight headlines the Box and promises something a bit different for 2010. “We really want to smash it this year at Ministry”, explains Mark. “For me, Toolroom Knights is a party that’s all about the music, we’ve got some world-class names lined-up for the Box in 2010 and really want to keep pushing the new-talent angle in the Bar - these are the stars of tomorrow. We want people to come to Toolroom Knights and be blown away by the music”.
How relevant then that Ministry has just undergone a ‘new-year upgrade’, with the club’s infamous main room system boosted to even greater sound superiority with the introduction of 6 new super subwoofer stacks, each measuring a humongous 12 foot x 6 ft and housing a total of 72 subs. Designed specifically for The Box, these tremendous new stacks will deliver a powerful sonic punch and introduce a whole new level of clean, low end bass, guaranteed to hit you on the dance floor and make you rumble in your pants.
Dutch DJ Superstar Fedde le Grand joins Mark in the Box to put all 72 of these powerful sub’s to the test. Having ram-raided his way onto the international scene with the ubiquitous ‘Put Your Hands Up for Detroit’ back in 2006, Fedde has successfully established his position as one of the industry’s premiership DJ’s, topping this year’s DJ Mag Top 100 Poll at number 29 and steps up to mix the next Toolroom Knights compilation, due for release 8th March. Both Fedde and Mark will play solo then team up for the last 2 hour to play a special back to back closing set.
Over in the newly refurbished Bar, Toolroom’s latest signing Thomas Gold celebrates the release of his dance-floor smash ‘The Button’. Recently included in Beatport’s ‘Rising Stars List’ this talented DJ/producer is tipped for big things in 2010. Joining him is another exciting, new artist Bart B More. Following his debut release on Toolroom ‘So It Goes’ international support has been growing by the minute, and the magic you hear in his productions is just as evident in his DJ sets. Toolroom’s future stars and regular tour residents; Pete Griffiths, Mark Storie and George Andrews complete the Bar line-up.
Next door in the Bay Box, Gifted take over and add some extra flavour with Radio 1’s Vernon Kay joining their line-up. Upstairs in the Loft, Northern house phenomenon Filth travel down from Leeds and pull out all the stops for their 3rd Birthday.
All in all a big night and plenty of musical talent to keep you on the dance floor til the wee hours of Sunday morning.
Also, don’t forget the special Toolroom offer - all tickets purchased on the door will receive a FREE Toolroom Knights CD, and for advanced ticket holders the CD will be available on the night for £5. (this CD would normally retail in stores at £12.99!!)
