Some may know Marc Kinchen as an icon of the dance world, some may know him only by his initials, “MK”, and then there are others who only know his music. This has been MK’s experience ever since his breakthrough remix of the international classic hit, ‘Push The Feeling On’ by The Nightcrawlers was released. However, in the past 18 months we have heard his smash remixes of Lana Del Rey and Chris Malinchak, as well as his solo projects on Hot Creations and Defected.
MK has long been responsible for taking ordinary pop records, and turning them into dance classics. Friday 28th February MK is headlining a Snowbombing Launch Party at classic venue The Albert Hall, a Grade II listed Wesleyan chapel in Manchester city centre closed and hidden for over 40 years.
Resurrected by Trof, the people behind Gorilla and The Deaf Institute, as an unrivalled events venue, restaurant and bar. The grand and ornate chapel has been restored into a stunning purpose built music hall and is set to become one of the most atmospheric music and events venues in the UK.

“Sometimes we do three cities in one night and that can be wild. It is very different from the solitary existence the studio lends itself to, but I like them both,” says MK. “There is really nothing more exhilarating than hearing and seeing the crowd react to a record you have produced, it is so instant, so much warmth and good energy, I am really having a ball”.
2013 also marked MK’s entry into Pete Tong’s Hall Of Fame. 2014 is promising to be a wild ride with new music, adventures and fantastic live shows. 2014 is promising to be a wild ride with new music, adventures and fantastic live shows, including the Snowbombing Launch Party at Albert Hall.
