An incredible and beautiful treatment from DJ David Morales who on Fracesco Rossi ft. Ozark Henry’s “Godspeed You” (Energy Production Records) is expanding his sound beyond what we’re used to getting from this house music legend. It’s a warm summer record that we’re sure will be well received at end of the season parties in Ibiza. You’ll surely hear this record at sunrise on a beach somewhere.
While the drums are Latin house flavored, the overall vibe of this remix is deep house and tech house with progressive house elements. Very unique mix from David and certainly one to listen for one dance floors around the globe. Leave a comment and let us know what you think of this record.

Last year, I created the Visions of a Sky playlist after being inspired by this incredible sunset over Grandfather Mountain in Western North Carolina. Each Visions of a Sky playlist will feature deep, melodic house, tech house and deep house with warm, lush sounds and sophisticated, layered tones. The photo that represents this Visions of a Sky mix was shot from the Blue Ridge Parkway at about 6,000 feet near the peak of Mt. Mitchell, also in Western North Carolina. The music in the series is evokes a thought provoking vibe similar to when you’re standing by yourself, looking out over the world below places up in the clouds, where there is no sound from the busy world down below. Just the natural sounds of the world in their organic essence and natural state. I hope you enjoy Visions of a Sky 2 as much as I enjoyed curating it and putting out this playlist for you to not only enjoy, but inspire relaxation and deep thought.
Mark Kinchen, known around the world simply as MK, has been producing dance music since the early ’90s. MK is responsible for three incredible house music classics, including “For You” under the pseudonym 4th Measure Men, “Love Changes as MK featuring Alana,” and the legendary record by Nightcrawlers called, “Push The Feeling On.”
I first learned about MK when I heard this record, “Somebody New” (which I still have on vinyl!) on KMS Records in 1989. KMS was Kevin Saunderson’s label out of Detroit. One could argue that while we attribute tech-house to German producers like Terry Lee Brown Jr, MK was really one of the early pioneers of tech house – the blending of techno and house. And, it’s clearly apparent on this record as well as the “For You” release.
According to his Wikipedia entry, his discography stops short in the late ’90s and doesn’t pick back up again until 2009. But in an interview with PublicSF, MK mentions doing two or three remixes a month after the Nightcrawlers record. A quick check over on Discogs and you can see that MK has credits on 435 remixes at the time of this writing. That’s pretty incredible, as I personally had no idea he had done that much work. I guess someone has to get started correcting the Wikipedia entry! It’s a huge body of work and maybe it’s time to go back and revisit many of these mixes. Well, that’s when I have some time, because that’s a lot of stuff to wade through.
Since we’re not going backwards but forwards, here are two recent MK mixes that I really loved. The first is a remix of Duke Dumont’s hit, “I Got You,” which is also available on Beatport as a download.
This one, Wankelmut feat. Emma Louis, “My Head Is a Jungle,” was one of the top tracks on Beatport’s Deep House and Tech House charts. MK took a crack at this one and the results are here on Netmix. We love this mix and we hope you do too!
