Defected Records presents MK In the House Radio Show!

The first ever mix compilation from the Detroit DJ & producer.
From working alongside some of the world’s biggest pop stars (think Michael Jackson, Will Smith, Pet Shop Boys, Pitbull) to crafting seminal and timeless underground house, Marc Kinchen – better known by his alias MK – is a peerless craftsmen of modern-day music. Arguably enjoying the most prolific artistic form of his life, Defected presents MK In The House is – somewhat unbelievably – his first ever mix compilation; a snapshot of where he currently sits; a 2-disc mix taking in Lana Del Ray, Dusky, Jamie Jones, FCL, Huxley and Kings of Tomorrow, as well as a handful of exclusive MK remixes.

Back in the early 90s, Marc Kinchen almost single-handedly pioneered a signature sound for the then relatively new genre of house music. His releases from that era such as ‘Burning’ and ‘Always’ and remixes like Nightcrawlers’ ‘Push the Feeling On’ are still ubiquitous and have, in the last year or so, served more as house blueprints, copied ad nauseam by young producers of the day. As such, MK’s influence on the current state of house music cannot be underestimated.
Defected presents MK In The House showcases a hand-picked selection of records both new and old. Rather than aiming for different vibes on each of the two discs, the Detroit DJ has recorded one long session that was simply split in two.  “A lot of my DJ friends, I thought they did their mixes and podcasts live, but a lot of them use Ableton” he admits.  “This was the first time I did it that way and it was pretty cool for me.”
