Mark Knight proves a tech house delight atop Nervous Records boat party

          The Circle Line cruise ship returned to dock at midnight, but as attendees of the sold out event would unanimously testify, the energy of the sold out boat party could very well have lasted all “Knight” long.

            Stepping out of the “Toolroom” to take the decks on board the deck, Mark Knightserved as the focal point of New York’s glittering skyline, ornamenting the city’s sprawling silhouette as he pulled a series of interchanging IDs from his well furnished “toolbox.”

            The boat flooded in the sole best possible way—needless to say, with a torrent of new musical material—ticket holders of the Nervous Records hosted event witnessed a set incomparable to any other as the industry staple delivered a four-hour set that only grew increasingly animated by the hour.

            Peak points of the extensive performance included Knight’s use of Ferreck Dawn’s “Rockin’,”the Dario D’Attis remix of Soul Vision’s “Don’t Stop,” and the Mark Knight/Green Velvet/Rene Amesz collaboration, “Live Stream.” The euphoric musical cherry atop the performative sundae proved to be a classic— “Man With The Red Face,” the set’s closing number.

            Cultivating an unprecedentedly intimate atmosphere aboard the boat, Mark Knight toasted the night’s end with event attendees after the set’s finale, all toasting to an evening of tech house tone.
