‘The Man With The Red Face’ - Mark Knight and Funkagenda

Without doubt the most requested record when I'm playing, and what better time to give the people what they want than on New Year's Eve. It was something we’d been working on it together in the studio, and I eventually finished off at 3am before getting a flight to play in Miami. We’d just wanted something a little different to play out that no-one else had, but when Beatport streamed the show it just went crazy online with everyone asking what it was. It pretty much just grew its own legs from there and never stopped running! Never fails to get an insane reaction.


‘Feel My Needs’ Purple Disco Machine Remix - Weiss 

This is only a couple of years old but is already an out and out Toolroom classic, and one that I can guarantee people will still be playing in a decade. It's got everything you need from a proper house record, big keys, soaring vocal, amazing production, and it's just so catchy. Definitely one to bring out for NYE.


‘Downpipe’ - Mark Knight, D.Rameriz & Underworld

Possibly the record I'm most proud of, and without doubt one of the biggest and most evergreen records on Toolroom. The first time I played this, it cleared the dancefloor – quite literally at Cream in Ibiza . It was just so different to everything else I was playing. It wasn’t quite the finished version of the record, but it was near enough there. So that wasn’t a great start. But we believed in it, and eventually people started to get it.


‘You Got The Love’ Mark Knight Remix - Florence & the Machine

To be honest, when you're given as good a record as this to remix, it's more a case of not messing it up. Florence has the most incredible voice and of course every house or disco head will know the original. so I just wanted to make something that could be banger out at peak time and make everyone go crazy. People still ask me for this all the time, so I guess it worked!


‘Alright’ - Mark Knight 

This was a real London anthem and struck a chord immediately when it was released, and five or six years later it still gets people going. There's something about that bassline that just really resonates with people, so it's definitely one I like to give a spin on special occasions like this.
