During the  very successful Brighton Music Conference 2016, on Friday 15th of April, the well-known UK house "institution" Toolroom records, has organised at Dead Wax Social, the whole day event Toolroom Academy that included production technique seminars, demo drops and dj sets from the most well known Toolroom artists such as Prok and Fitch and Funkagenda. We approached Stuart  Knight, Director of Toolroom records and we requested an interview with him and we are glad that he accepted the challenge for our interview that you can watch right here and right now. We asked him about his personal participation at the advisory board of BMC and the Toolroom involvement at this years BMC with Toolroom Academy. He explained to us the whole schedule of Toolroom Academy and the purpose of the various sessions. He further expressed the view that Brighton is the perfect place for an Electronic Music Conference in UK that was missing and BMC comes to fill this gap. We talked extensively about Toolroom records and the releases scheduled for the next few months, he reveals his favourite house music subgenre and he explains why Toolroom has expanded into releasing their excellent samples libraries series that djs and producers use extensively. What is more we discussed the future plans for Toolroom records, and how the brand can expand in the future. Of course he tell us about Toolroom plans for the coming summer period in Ibiza. Lastly we could  not resist the temptation to ask him about his relationship with his brother and house legend Mark Knight and how this relationship may affect the record label. It's definitely an eye opening interview that you should press play and enjoy his brilliant answers!
