MKEY debuts on his UNOU Records


Label head MKEY sets the tone with his debut ‘Subcurrent’ EP on the UNOU Record label.

Subcurrent EP includes 2 originals coupled with a stand out remix from Womack. The A-side comes in the shape of a groove-driven sound along with a bumpy B side in Equalizing. Womack has stayed true to his own unique impression and UNOU Records they are extremely excited to announce the artist from the United States on the label.

In just 2 short years MKEY, the musical alias of Scottish DJ Mikey Watson, has already started to gain recognition. With the blistering technical ability and the innate knowledge of how to work a dance floor, he has already begun to make his moves in the electronic music scene.

Despite his early musical experiences being far more traditional, he played the bagpipes to a world-class level. MKEY’s passion has always been electronic music. MKEY’s sound sits firmly in the realms of underground house music, minimalistic right through to solid, grooving tech-house. Each of his sets has nods toward his influences within the underground scene. Ranging from the established names such as Steve Lawler and Hot since 82 to more underground artists such as Bizen Lopez.

First up, the lead track Subcurrent. What can only be described as a groove-driven peak time deep tech infusion. MKEY has blended wavey pad like stabs with stand out arpeggiated bassline and introduced a snippet of a vocal really drives the track forward. A little hint of an acid synth sitting slightly in the mids delivers something unique against the percussion. This sets the tone for the rest of the EP.

We premiere the lead track ‘Subcurrent’ on Data Transmission, check it out below and grab it on Beatport.

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
