Producer, remixer, DJ and Area10 label boss, Detroit native MK (marc kinchen) came to prominence early on in his career when songs like “Always” and “Burning” and records like “4 You” and “Just A Dream” penned under his alter ego 4th Measure Men became some of the most influential house songs of the ‘90s and still remain so today. Along with his iconic take on “Push The Feeling On,” he was able to put an unknown group Nightcrawlers on the map simply with his unique and timeless remixes.
A look ahead to the early 2000s had MK sharpening his R&B skills with powerhouses like Will Smith and Diane Warren, and by 2007 or so, he realized he needed a change. Fast forward to 2013 when MK’s rework of Storm Queen’s “Look Right Through” scored a UK number #1 on the official singles chart. MK followed the success just one year later with his remix of “My Head Is A Jungle” by Wankelmut & Emma Louise – the Ibiza anthem of 2014.
After that came Bakermat’s rework of gospel great Shirley Caesar’s “Teach Me,” followed by remixes for Rudimental’s “Powerless” featuring Becky Hill, Disclosure’s “White Noise,” Hot Natured’s “Reverse Skydiving,” and Lana Del Rey’s “Blue Jeans,” “Summertime Sadness,” and “West Coast,” as well as remixes for HAIM, Rihanna, Diplo, Tove Lo, Halsey, Elderbrook, Mary J Blige, Sam Smith, Sigrid, Ellie Goulding, London Grammar, and many more.
While keeping busy in the studio, MK and Becky Hill decided to do another record together and released the platinum “Piece of Me.” Marc’s next song “17,” released in 2017, also achieved platinum status and to date has streamed over 120 million times on Spotify. Most recent is the gold certified “Back & Forth,” which came with a full complement of incredible mixes and saw its way through as a favorite at festivals and shows such as SW4, We Are FSTVL, Parklife, Amnesia, Pacha, Ushuaia, EDC, WHP, Tomorrowland, and Creamfields – where MK curated his own Area10 stages. Following this string of successful singles, his next offering is the release of his new single “Body 2 Body,” right in time to kick off the summer 2019 season. The single is out now and has already received massive global support.
