Born Leaders

Toolroom nurtures new talent

Hot house label Toolroom Recordshave set up a new sub label to push talented new producers. Leaders of the New School is the logical progression from Toolroom's series of EPs, which have introduced rising artists like Richard Dinsdale and Patric la Funk. Toolroom boss Mark Knight revealed his gameplan for the label.

"This is the evolution of our Leaders of the New School EP series, which gives artists the opportunity to release on a bigger label. Both up-and-coming artists who are creating hot music that's rocking dancefloors across the globe, AND artists that have been working the scene for years but not necessarily had the spotlight they deserve," Knight commented.

The first release is due for the end of January. An EP by Matt Samuels will kickstart proceedings, with forthcoming cuts lined up from Tim Weeks and Marcella.
