Toolroom Records, one of the leading names of the house music scene, is set to bring something special to San Francisco. Established in 2003, Toolroom Records literally began in owner and superstar DJ Mark Knight’s backyard tool shed. Since then, the label has grown into an international powerhouse that has achieved unrivalled success in just a short few years: it has smashed innumerable sales records, scooped up awards from Beatport, picked up an IDMA at Winter Music Conference in Miami, broke into the iTunes compilation charts, and collaborated with A-list artists such as Coldplay, Florence and the Machine, Faithless and Tiesto.
Not content with just staying a label, the Toolroom brand launched their own club night called “Toolroom Knights”. Originally starting in London’s famous Ministry of Sound, their event soon grew and spread across Europe’s leading clubs and festival tents, to where it now spends it’s Summer season at Space Ibiza, arguably the world’s best club. In the five short years that the label has been hosting parties, many of EDM’s DJ elite have played for them; artists such as Fedde le Grand, Benny Benassi, Umek, Chris Lake, Wolfgang Gartner, Michael Woods and Tocadisco (just to name a few) have all joined head-honcho Mark Knight in bringing the party.
On Friday, June 1st Toolroom Knights will set up shop at San Francisco’s Vessel nightclub, where they’ll be showcasing the best of the label’s talent. For the first installment, they bring with them Gina Star, who is a true rising star and homegrown American talent whose first release debuted at #1 on the Beatport Progressive House chart and #10 in the overall chart. A fierce talent in the studio and behind the decks, Gina will make her Vessel debut in fine style.
