When Mark Knight established the label in 2003, Toolroom had a very simple mantra. It was to be a record label run by DJs, for DJs.
With over ten years experience of nurturing internationally successful artists, as well as running a network of global events, we know exactly what it takes to be a successful DJ. That’s why we’re proud to have launched a new DJ school – a suite of courses with a focus on teaching the REAL skills you need, taught by a REAL DJ – Seamus Haji.
With 30 years’ DJ experience, Seamus has played some of the biggest clubs and festivals in the world, and has twice performed the hallowed Radio 1 Essential Mix for Pete Tong. Initially known for playing long sets mixing vinyl on 3 turntables, it was these skills that led to Pioneer making Seamus an official ambassador at the turn of the millennium when they launched the revolutionary CDJ-1000. His DJ experience is backed up by a long career as an acclaimed A&R, having worked for legendary labels Slip N’ Slide, Defected, Strictly Rhythm and Ministry of Sound. Make no mistake – you’ll be learning from a man who is armed with a wealth of real knowledge and experience.
