Another act making his long awaited SW4 debut in 2014 is undeniably the hottest property in house music right now; Marc Kinchen aka MK. Having been responsible for creating some of the defining sounds and biggest house tracks in the 1990’s, including ‘Burning’ and his pioneering remix of Nightcrawler's 'Push The Feeling On', MK took a break from dance music until 2011 when he remerged more prolific than before.Through his timeless productions, MK’s renasissance has infuenced a new generation of fans resulting in his sound becoming more dominant today than it ever has been. After releasing ‘MK In The House’ for Defected in 2013, it was clear that MK was back to his very best, with his remix ofStorm Queen’s #1 single ‘Look Right Through’ becoming the pivotal track. Further remixes of Disclosure, London Grammar, Hot Natured, Haimand Paloma Faith are additional evidence of his huge demand and with continued dominance on the cards in 2014, we cannot wait to welcome theArea 10 boss for a house music masterclass.
