Yet another summer is coming to a close, and the electronic music world is beginning to slow down as fall and winter inch closer. Luckily, however, MK’s newest release titled “17” has arrived just in time to treat the ears to a round of pleasant, sunny house that is geared toward combating the end-of-season blues.
The house maven immediately douses listeners with nostalgic influence, invoking feelings of a party in the 1990s with his classic piano stabs that are lined with subtle string notes. That said, “17’s” coup de gras comes in the form of contemporary, yet carefree vocals that sing an ode to easier times and youthful romance.
MK has exercised almost super-human balancing skills over the past few months. Not only has he found the studio time to put together “17” and other compositions, but he’s also been on a non-stop touring streak that has seen him at major global festivals throughout the season and in clubs as well. He remains on this streak, having just announced an adjoining tour to “17” across the US.
