MK grew up amidst a tough industrial landscape in Detroit. By the time he was 14 he knew music was his destiny and was lucky enough to ﬁnd his way into the studio with nascent techno legends Juan Atkins, Derrick May and Kevin Saunderson. Those early sessions were pure education providing MK with the tools he needed to make timeless tracks like 'The Rains,' 'Burning,' 'Always,' and more. By the mid-1990s, MK was the go-to remix guy, thanks in part to the global success of his million-plus-selling 'Push The Feeling On' remix (redo) for The Nightcrawlers. Following the success of 'Push The Feeling On,' remix oﬀers from majors and indie labels were nonstop, and tracks like his remix of 'Freek N You' for Jodeci, 'Misled' for Celine Dion, 'The Best Things In Life Are Free' for Janet Jackson, 'Can You Forgive Her' for Pet Shop Boys, Mary J. Blige, M People, M.A.W., Blondie, and Brandy were released. Toward the late 90s MK's wish of branching out into other genres of music led him to delve into his other love, hip-hop, R&B and ultimately pop. During this time, he worked with Will Smith, Quincy Jones, Diane Warren, Tyrese, Brandy, and Pitbull to name a few. Then, in 2007, a chance connection with Jamie Jones and Lee Foss led to MK's return to dance/house music. In 2013, MK surprised us again with his remix of "Look Right Through" by Storm Queen, which went to #1 on the UK charts. Shortly after the success of that remix, others followed like his remix of 'Forward Motion' for Hot Natured, Lana Del Ray's 'Blue Jeans' and 'Summertime Sadness." It was not long before he had a UK #4 remix for Wankelmut's 'My Head Is A Jungle." Mixes for Sam Smith, Pharrell, Paloma Faith, Ellie Goulding, Disclosure, Haim, Mary J. Blige, Diplo, Sleepy Boo and Rudimental followed. This return to dance was diﬀerent than the ﬁrst time as MK returned this time as a DJ as well as producer/remixer. Currently, MK has his sights set on ﬁnishing up his album and putting out the third single with Area10/Columbia, "My Love 4 U" by MK featuring A*M*E. Recently, MK re-launched his iconic label and event brand Area10. He is currently getting ready to wind down from this summer 2016 with his Area10 Fallback Sessions. His Summer included his own curated Area 10 stages at Creamﬁelds, We Are FSTVL, dates at Together at Amnesia in Ibiza, Camp Bisco, V Festivals, Parklife as well as an Area10 takeover at Pacha Ibiza and numerous North American club dates.
