In this podcast I chat to Mark Knight the head honcho of Toolroom Records for an album listen-through, we deep dive into the production and artistry behind the album!
Toolroom founder and Grammy-nominated producer Mark Knight reveals his highly anticipated new artist album, 'Untold Business’, with a set of 13 beautifully crafted, positive, life-affirming songs deemed to lift everyone’s spirits. Featuring an all-star cast, including Michael Gray, Robert Owens, Shingai (Noisettes), Gene Farris and more, 'Untold Business’ features Mark’s recent smash with Beverley Knight and The London Community Gospel Choir, 'Everything’s Gonna Be Alright’, and a one of his biggest releases to date, 'All 4 Love’, with Rene Amesz and Tasty Lopez, which became firmly lodged on BBCR1 for 6 weeks. Known for releasing quality club records, ‘Untold Business’ sees Mark Knight go back to his roots, reprising the sounds and records that made him the DJ he is today. Delving through his extensive collection of classic Funk, House, Soul and Disco records from the 1970s and 80s has provided the bedrock for the album which pays homage to the soulful, vocal house music that Mark first fell in love within the 90s. With stunning results primed to stand the test of time, ‘Untold Business’ boasts some of Mark’s best work to date, a testament to his creativity and maturity as an artist, and indeed, why he is still one of the UK’s best-loved dance music producers! Mark Knight joined me on Twitch for an album walkthrough, we played some of the tracks of the album, he spoke about the stories about the tracks and how they came about.
