The US house producer's first commercial mix will see release in April.
Known more for his original productions and remixes than his DJing—in fact, he rarely DJ'd at all in his early years—the release will be Kinchen's first commercial mix. Defected presents MK In The House is heavily focused on the producer's own remixes and dubs under the name MK. It contains a number of classic tracks, such as 1993's "Love Changes" featuring Alana and the MK dub of Jodeci's "Freek'n You," first released in '95. There's some brand new material, too, most notably Kinchen's own remixes of The Pet Shop Boys' "Can You Forgive Her" and FCL's "It's You."
A press release states that the two-disc mix was recorded in one long session. "A lot of my DJ friends, I thought they did their mixes and podcasts live, but a lot of them use Ableton," Kinchen says. "This was the first time I did it that way and it was pretty cool for me." Defected also revealed that Kinchen is working on a live band project with Hot Natured member Lee Foss and vocalist Anabel (the three of them have already teamed up on "Electricty," disc two's closing track.) The digital version of the mix comes with a bonus 10-track release featuring MK remixes and original productions.
