On September 13
, Muzik Pool Ba
r will be closing out summer and the Toronto International Film Festival
in colossal fashion. The swanky newly renovated venue will host one of the biggest names in House music over the past decade, Mark Knight
. Also on the bill will be local superstars Addy
, Mark Vidovik
, Jay Force
, and Paul Quzz
Addy has been tearing up DJ booth’s and setting dance floors ablaze in clubs all over T.O. for several years now. Spinning his way to the top of the local scene, he has earned a reputation that allows him to routinely fill venues with patrons eager to dance the night away. Add to that the star power of Knight and the nostalgia of TIFF and this is a guaranteed sellout. If you don’t already have your tickets, I suggest you purchase them immediately.
Mark Knight has amassed a multitude of accomplishments since the early 2000s. He’s produced countless hits and made literally hundreds of remixes. His most recent remix of Basement Jaxx Never Say Never is already a huge hit and was featured on Tiësto’s 382nd edition of “Club Life” radio show. Perhaps his most astounding accomplishment to date is his label Toolroom Records. Since it’s inception in 2003 Knight has established the label into an industry powerhouse, boasting a roster that includes Benny Benassi, David Guetta, deadmau5 & Coldplay.
2014 has been a busy year for the UK production wizard who has received multiple Grammy
nominations. His constant touring has seen him touch down in almost every corner of the globe, with dates in Japan, Egypt and his residency in Ibiza to follow the Toronto date. He recently released his third installment of “Bullets
”, a series of mini EP’s consisting of just two tracks. True to form both of his new songs are excellent examples of the consistence Mark Knight has demonstrated with his unique sound over a lengthy career. In and Out
as well as The Diary Of A Studio 54 DJ
are the perfect fusion of commercial & underground. Which is precisely how Knight describes them. During the premier of “In and Out” on Pete Tong
’s BBC Radio 1
, he was speaking about the entire Bullet series, when he offered that the records were “something that connects right across the board. More underground guys can play at their more accessible moments in their set, and the more commercial guys can play at the more underground”.
I can’t think of a better way to end the summer and TIFF
, then to party with Toronto’s favorite DJ & the world class Mark Knight. With a lineup this titillating, in a club as prestigious as Muzik, I wouldn’t be surprised if some of the Hollywood actors come out to join the party.
