MTV IGGY: Selector: Marc Kinchen’s Top 5 MK Dubs

By Joseph 'JP' Patterson

When you’re as heavily associated with such a seminal dance record as Marc Kinchen is with Nightcrawlers' Push The Feeling On, it can be a double-edged sword, a gift and a curse. For MK, though, it was solely a blessing. Establishing himself as one of the brightest dance and R&B remixers through his work on the '90s classic, the Detroit native – now 20 years deep in – has since remixed, written, and produced for a plethora of music industry heavyweights, including Blondie, Luther Vandross, Moby, Janet Jackson et al, whilst still showing love to on-the-rise talents such as Katy B, Angel Haze, and Sam Smith.

With over two hundred remix credits to his name, MK’s done a fair bit of damage to the charts, too: he’s topped the dance charts over twenty times and, more recently, cracked the UK singles chart at number one with his sun-kissed house reworking of Storm Queen’s Look Right Through. And with every shuffle-inducing dub he produces, he continues to live up to his legendary status as one of the world’s greatest dance music creators. Read on, as Marc Kinchen selects his top five favourite MK dubs thus far (in no particular order).
