We catch up with the British DJ who plays in Bengaluru this weekend
Mark Knight is an unmissable name in the London techno circles. With songs like Man With The Red Face, Alright, Downpipe and his own label Toolroom, Mark is a man of many accolades. In 2010, he was nominated for a Grammy for his work with The Black Eyed Peas on the album The E.N.D. He heads to Bengaluru on his latest tour.
What is the best collaboration that you have worked on?
Every time I get in the studio with English house producer and DJ D Ramirez, it’s pretty special. We’ve spent a lot of time working together, so we can play to each other’s strengths. I’ve been working with him a lot recently on a new project, which I can’t speak about yet!
What’s the philosophy you follow while creating music?
I’ve always wanted to make memorable records that work on a dancefloor but that stays with you after the club, or wherever you hear them, and that has been consistent with my music from the beginning.
How has your sound evolved over the years?
You never stop learning, honing and developing your techniques, so I think that my records are more accomplished now, and probably a little more mature. In terms of the specific style, I think I’ve achieved everything I set out with tech house and some of the tougher club records, so I’m definitely looking to release music that will hopefully surprise people this year.
Tomorrow. At the UB City Amphitheatre, Vittal Mallya Road, 6 pm. Ticktes (`1,000) on bookmyshow.com
