Few people have been in the scene as long as Marc Kinchen, known to most as MK. Looking no further than the hundreds of releases under his name, it is obvious that he has clocked in his time as one of the underground’s top tastemakers. His catalog and career, spanning over three decades, features both commercial and underground successes. MK is one of the very few acts lucky enough to have learned from two of techno’s founding fathers in Detroit — Juan Atkins and Kevin Saunderson — and also work as Will Smith’s in-house producer.
