Earlier this month, Toolroom Records head honcho Mark Knight and his Toolroom Records released his mini-doc project “Odyssey,” focusing on the art of the extended dj set.
“DJing is about creating a journey; it’s about telling a story. And to do that you need time.” — Roger Sanchez
With more demand than ever for clubs and festivals to put as many recognizable names as possible on their lineups to attract fans, the art of the extended set is in danger of being set aside to the history books. However as DJs and clubbers know, the extended set can often be where the greatest dance floor stories unfold, and the most powerful and long-lasting impressions made.
Featuring interviews from some of the DJs and industry figures that fiercely champion the benefits of playing all night long such as Roger Sanchez and Danny Tenaglia, “Odyssey” is a celebration of giving the music and the DJ room to breathe.
“The project has been a labour of love and features some of the best DJs I know working today. I hope you enjoy watching it as much as we did making it.” — Mark Knight
