MK is excited to announce the release of his go-to track and anticipated new single, ‘17’ via Area 10/Sony/Columbia – and you can listen to it now on the Shoot Music – New Releases Playlist.
‘17’ – which is also a new addition to the Fantasy Premier League and Soccer AM: New Music playlists – features MK’s (full name Marc Kinchen) trademark piano chords with guest Carla Monroe’s authentic vocal delivery topping the underlying track with an uplifting topline melody.
Summer 2017 saw MK perform dates in the States and launch his first mini Area10 festival in Ireland, with 4,999 tickets selling out in record breaking time. With headline slots also at We R Festival, Melt in Germany, his own Area 10 stages at Creamfields, SW4 and Croatia’s Defected Festival, it has been one of MK’s busiest years so far.
MK’s use of a constant powerful bassline pays homage to a vibe that hints of a retro house tone. The resulting anthem has been going off across Europe and at various festivals, receiving frequent spins at Creamfields, Hidelout, Lost & Found, SW4, Tomorrowland, Melt as well as at various Ibiza clubs and beach bars, including the iconic Cafe Mambo, Pacha and Amnesia.
Through his great live sets and infectious remixes for the likes of Rihanna, London Grammar, Clean Bandit and Solardo, MK has become one of the most popular and in demand names in dance music. Several of his earlier releases, including ‘Always’, ‘Burning’ and ‘Push The Feeling On‘ were instrumental in helping dance music cross over into mainstream, whilst his remix of Storm Queen‘s ‘Look Right Through’ hit the Number 1 spot in the UK back in 2013.
Prior to recent release ‘My Love 4 U’ (feat A*M*E), MK’s 2016 Gold selling hit ‘Piece of Me’ (feat. Becky Hill) became a summer staple, garnering just under 40 million Spotify plays in the process, proving that he remains at the top of his game as a DJ, producer and curator.
