Episode 61 of our Label Lovers series comes courtesy of the legendary Glasgow Underground founder, Kevin McKay.
In his latest, boss-man Kevin McKay links with vocalist Rozie Gyems to serve up another dancefloor gem; a lush house version of Sade’s essential 90s hit ‘Nothing Can Come Between Us’ out on 27 th November. This lands as McKay sits at #3 in Beatport’s overall chart with ‘Work It’ and his label is awarded Beatport’s label of the month for December. It also follows his previous edit of Sade’s ‘Pearls’ (GU’s 500th release) as he continues to artfully revamp older tracks to make them accessible for modern club settings. The deep groove and cool contemporary edge of this sound has seen upfront DJ support on the latest single from respected names like Wankelmut, John Morales, Claptone, Robert Owens amongst many others.

McKay is still enjoying the success of his artist-focused, full-length DJ mix album ‘Summer Of Love’ which landed back in September. The 15-track collection featured tracks conceived, produced or remixed (or remixes commissioned) by McKay and was a fine reflection of what to expect from one of his in-demand DJ sets. Singles and remixes from the album including ‘Freak Like Me’, the Qubiko remix of ‘Save Me’ and ‘Gimme Gimme’ all hit the top 20 on Beatport and picked up millions of streams. Now with ‘Work It’ also riding high it rounds off a standout year for the much-loved producer.
