“Music is the lifeline to our business, without income from genuine music sales we would not be able to operate and support the wide ecosystem of incredibly talented artists that make up the Toolroom Family. Toolroom works with legitimate digital music platforms and has done for over 17 years now, these platforms have strict procedures and guidelines in place to ensure reporting, piracy and other key issues within the music industry are met with high standards. The Music Mission is a project that is invaluable – we fully support the incredible work that will be going on in the background to target sites that feel they can do what they wish without any label permissions, any reporting for artists and a disrespect for the music industry as a whole. The Music Mission is a key part of The Toolroom Family.”

"One of the most unpleasant example of how these pages work is that: Even though it hasn't gone on sale (we are in Pre-sale)my latest work, is available on those platforms to download... where's the security flaw? i dont know ... but the losses are already insured even before that goes on sale. First we lost a record store with the P2P like Napster, Emule, and since 2007 we see how these pages earn fortunes while the electronic music industry enters on losses and has to almost consider selling music as a promotion of its artists and not a business..."
