The film is being released in anticipation of a major tour by Toolroom boss Mark Knight

Now available on YouTube, Odyssey is a new 17-minute mini-documentary that looks at longer DJ sets and asks if playing extended sets is an artform that's in danger of being lost.

The film, which you can watch below, is a Toolroom Records production, and Toolroom boss Mark Knight features heavily both as an interviewee and conducting interviews himself with the likes of Danny Tenaglia, Roger Sanchez, Chus & Ceballos, Andy C and Jonas Rathsman - all DJs known for playing longer sets, as opposed to the hour-long slots that are increasingly common these days.

Odyssey's release trails the start of a major tour by Knight which will see him playing all night long at the following venues:

Culture Box, Copenhagen (12 April)
Womb, Tokyo (22 April)
Panama, Amsterdam (27 April)
Output, New York (28 April)
Soundbar, Chicago (29 April)
Pacha, Munich (5 May)
