MK is responsible for creating some of the defining sounds and biggest tracks of the early house. He has worked with the biggest international artists from Snoop Dogg and Jay-Z to Rihanna and Beyonce, but has also retained near unprecedented levels of credibility within the underground dance music scene, with records such as ‘Burning’, ‘4 You’ or ‘Push The Feeling On’ remaining staples in the wallets and boxes of house DJs the world over. We chat exclusively with him ahead of his set at Eden Ibiza this Monday
Q. What tracks are working well for you this summer?
MK. I have been playing a lot of my new and upcoming stuff so my new remix for Wanklenut “My Head is a jungle,” is really feeling good, Paper Aeroplanes is coming on strong (i just finished the remixes); the next Duke Dumont is going to be killer and I just started playing some new things but can’t give it all away just yet….but do look out for my next Pleasure State single with Lee Foss and Anabel Englund….we are finishing some of our new ep in August, and can’t forget the staple these days is still Storm Queen, that record never fails to amaze me.
Q. Best memory on the island?
MK. Hey wait a second, i may not have had that memory yet…but, all in all, so far though i have to say everyone has been so incredibly warm and nice to us, it really is a magical place…. i think i now understand why everyone loves it here so much
Q. Why do you enjoying playing at ToolroomKnights events?
MK. It’s a special crew with so much passion and sincerity. I really love that. Everyone is so real and not caught up with politics of promoting shows….Mark Knight is an amazing dj and producer….he has a team of people that really reflect his professional manner and authenticity… he also knows how to put on a great party…
Q. Where else can we see you this summer?
MK. I will be playing for Yousef at Chibuku in Liverpool, in Cantebury, Stratford upon Avon, Riccione, Italy, Eastern Electrics, Oslo at Jaeger, back to Ibiza Aug 10 to play the defected party, NY with Mark Knight and Toolroom for the Electric Zoo afterparty on August 30, then Miami and then back into the studio and back on the road again…
Q. What else can we expect from you in the near future?
MK. Well as I mentioned I am doing the next Duke Dumont single and we are hoping to do some writing together as well, I wil also be going into the studio with Lee Foss and Anabel to get cracking on our Pleasure State album and then, of course, going full steam ahead on my MK album as well. There are also a few really incredible re-mixes/collaborations that i am working on…
I am looking forward to seeing you guys in Ibiza!!!! MK
