MK releases 2014 Summer Mix

Summer is definitely here and that means it’s time for MK’s 2014 Summer Mix. This years mix features some of MK’s picks for this Summer’s hottest records along with a hand picked mixture of some of his most loved classics that continue to stand the test of time.

MK serves up a mixture of rhythm and heat with a syncopated flow inspired by Summer in one of MK’s favourite places, Los Angeles. The mix includes some of Marc’s favourite artists, records and remixes ranging from Douglas Greed. “Driven” (Seth Troxler remix), Monarchy ‘Living Without You’ (MK remix) to MK’s his latest remix of his own record ‘Always.’

Hard to believe that it has been almost a year since MK’s remix of Storm Queen’s ‘Look Right Through’ soared to No.1 in the UK charts. This year has just flown by for MK and it looks like fans all over are primed for more of Marc’s special blend of house. Just one glance at his busy touring schedule is proof that his sound is being welcomed and anticpated everywhere. MK’s soundcloud has become a home and a hotbed for what is new and fresh in MK’s world, as it features all sorts of new goodies and mixes that may otherwise be hard to track down elsewhere..

MK has just released what looks set to be another UK Top 10 with his remix package of his 1992 hit ‘Always’. With producer Route 94 on remix duty, the release on Ministry Of Sound / Defected looks set to rank highly in this weeks UK charts, you can buy ‘Always’ (Route 94 Remix) here


Check Out Another Track from Rustie’s Upcoming LP for Warp


After sharing a stream of “Raptor” along with the details of his upcoming sophomore full-length for WarpRustie has let loose a full stream of LP cut “Attak.” Featuring Detroit rapper Danny Brown, “Attak” is a boisterous affair built on the back of trunk-rattling 808s and a piercing series of neon synths. From there, Brown leads the effort with a sharp-witted, chorus-less performance, adding extra gruff to his voice as Rustie’s production adds on more sonic weight. “Attak” can be streamed in full below before Rustie’s Green Language LP lands on August 25.

Axwell To Perform at Avalon Hollywood on August 2nd



Having recently debuted no less than 5 brand new tracks at New York’s Governor’s Ball alongside fellow Swede Sebastian Ingrosso, 5-time Grammy nominated artist, Axwell, returns to LA as a solo artist for the first time in three years. Axwell will perform HARD Summer, Avalon Hollywood and Craneway Pavillion all in his only weekend of California tour dates for the summer. 

Following his month-long tenure as Beatport’s no.1 remix for ‘Tokyo By Night,’ Axwell kicked off his summer with the weekly Departures residency in Ibiza alongside Sebastian Ingrosso under the Axwell /\ Ingrosso moniker. Regarded as the most diverse musical lineup featured on the island, Departures at Ushuaia Beach Hotel comes to life every Wednesday night of the summer. 

Having played the main stage of every nation’s major festival this summer including Electric Daisy Carnival, Governor’s Ball, Bravalla and more, Axwell breaks from his new venture to play three back-to-back performances strictly for the west coast.
