Toolroom Summer Party: Gene Farris, Illyus & Barrientos, Mark Knight, Maxinne, Weiss
Gene Farris is the sinister minister of dance music's changing sounds. Farris's global DJ track record and extensive discography of over forty productions are definitely a testament to the true Chicago house sound. Farris's unique dexterous DJ style that includes extended sultry, melodic blends with tuff beats makes him a party favourite around the world.

Illyus & Barrientos are the odd couple of Glaswegian dance music.
Brought together by Glasgow Underground’s Kevin McKay, their disparate backgrounds (one was growing up in the local hip-hop scene while the other was still taking classical piano lessons) make them unlikely partners. Put them in a studio, though, and they have a knack for whipping up the kind of unashamedly big, floor-filling modern house tunes that have propelled them to somewhat dizzying levels of acclaim.

Over the past few years, Mark Knight has forged himself a reputation as one of the foremost house producers on the planet – prolific both in the quantity and quality of his releases. A string of consistently hot productions and skillfully written remixes has catapulted Mark to the top of the dance charts, earned him a nomination as “Artist of the Year” at last years House Music Awards, and has made him a firm favourite with a cross section of the house community.
Mark launched his brand-new concept ‘Toolroom Knights’ at the 2006 Amsterdam Dance Event (ADE). The night, based around the label’s and Mark’s distinctive sound aims to bring the underground sound of Toolroom Records to the over ground.
