Kevin McKay announces debut LP ‘The Love Forever’
Glasgow Underground founder Kevin McKay has announced his debut long player ‘The Love Forever’ to be released on 25th May.
Kevin started producing in 1994, kicking off his debut label Muzique Tropique with ‘Prelude To The Storm’ – a collaboration with Andy Carrick. He is also credited for producing and mixing Mylo’s seminal platinum-selling album ‘Destory Rock & Roll’, the album went on to secure 4 top 40 singles including ‘Drop The Pressure’, ‘Destroy Rock & Roll’, ‘In My Arms’ and ‘Muscle Car’ as well as the UK number 3 hit ‘Doctor Pressure’.
“I think it is true when people say that most A&R’s are frustrated artists. It certainly was in my case when I was working on the Mylo album,” said Kevin. “Destroy Rock & Roll was definitely the kind of album I would have written at the time if I could. It was an unusual situation that lead to me being both A&R and producer and not one that happened again. I found the step back to just A&Ring records not anywhere near as satisfying and so spent some time developing my writing so I could make the kind of records I’ve always wanted to by myself.”
Following the huge milestone of Glasgow Underground’s 20th anniversary last year and he is finally ready to offer and showcase himself in the album format and the 12-track collection is an exciting prospect for his fans and fans of house music.
Discussing ‘The Love Forever’, Kevin says, “last year I got to a place where I felt that I’d developed enough to take on an album and “The Love Forever” is the result. The title is not about romantic love but about my love affair with dance music. No matter what has happened in my life, music has always pulled me through and “The Love Forever” is about the kind of dance music I love. It moves from disco to techno to deep, melodic house music and hopefully does it in a way that works just as well at a rave as it does in your living room or by the pool.”
Along with the announcement, he’s dropped his second single ‘The Good Life’ which you can hear below.
