DT777 – Kevin Mckay

Share

Kevin McKay has spent many years deeply entrenched in the house music scene. In that time he has earned a deserving reputation as one of house music’s most hard-working figures and has done everything from working in high profile collaborative duos with Omid 16B, creating numerous dance floor anthems, discovering and co-producing Mylo’s seminal album, ‘Destroy Rock & Roll’ album and holding down a residency at Mick’s Garage in London. Alongside this he has been the figurehead and driving force behind one of house music’s most respected and best-loved labels, Glasgow Underground.

On 25th February he is releasing his latest album, ‘Goodies’, a collection of his favourite singles from the last 15 months or so. The album continues the trend he set with his last album ‘Summer Of Love’ and brings together an unmissable set of surefire dance floor bombs, reworking plenty of classic tracks to deliver on a modern dancefloor. Kevin McKay has proven time and again that he knows how to get the party started and he’s dug deep once again for the DT Podcast Mix.

Today, he returns to the podcast in 2022. Listen to it below, on Mixcloud or iTunes here.

Sum up this podcast in 10 words…
Giant 80s disco edits and good-time Saturday night house music. 

What’s your personal favourite track on it?

That’s a tough one! Probably the DotNLife & Flera rework of “Hollaback Girl”. A well loved vocal hook and their groove is so infectious, it never fails to ignite a dancefloor. 

What’s the special ingredient in this mix?

This is the kind of stuff I play at I Feel Love in London. The party mixes disco and rave classics with modern-day edits. I try and make new edits for every party as while playing old tracks can create a magic mood, I’ve found that beefing them up and focussing an edit on the tastiest hooks creates even more fun on the floor. So, if there’s anything I’ve tried to do in this mix, it’s to showcase that. 

Tell us about your next EP? 
My next single is a rework of the Ciara song “Goodies”.  It is the exclusive new single on my 3rd album of the same name. Both out February 25th. 
What have you got coming up?

I am playing I Feel Love at Prince of Wales in Brixton on Friday 18th of February. Then I Feel Love at The Hare & Hounds, near Birmingham on 19th March and the Botanic in Inverness on 26th March. 

And finally, do you have a special message for our readers?
Thanks for listening! Hopefully see you on the dancefloor soon.

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.
