HTIKMM: DJ MK Triple Tape Bonus

DJ MK Triple Tape Bonus

When I was young and foolish, responsibility-free, and with more money than sense, I used to blow my entire wages on Hiphop music. If I wasn’t blowing up the phone to those nice Depth Charge people over in York, I was frittering my hard-earned away on mixtapes copped from the man DJ MK.

I used to send Mr King a check every couple of weeks for 6-10 mixtapes at a time, many of which have made it onto this site as part of HTIKMM, and on a few occasions paid him a little extra, sent him a track list, and he sent me back a custom-mixed tape. I’ve upped a couple of these, just for a laugh – you’ll see they’re not as polished as his regular stuff, but they’re bloody exclusives – because I have the only copies. I’ve also upped a Westwood show from 1995, where MK got down on the wheels, playing a lot of splendid underground Hiphop.

Oh, and I’m going to kill my sister because the box of tapes she was meant to send me over had a copy of MK’s “Bastard Breaks” – that shit is off the fucking hook…

MK on Radio 1

DJ MK Live On Radio 1 with Tim Westwood (September 16th, 1995)



MK’s bio lifted from his myspace page – here

DJ MK is one of the UKs leading Hip Hop deejays. He has been a favourite on the club scene for the last 10 years, displaying his turntable dexterity up and down the UK and throughout Europe, Australia and the United States. What sets MK apart from many of his peers is his ability to rock a crowd wherever he plays, be it Londons Ministry Of Sound, an Underground UK Hip Hop Jam, Pacha in Ibiza or an Arctic Monkeys after-party.

MK was the first UK DJ to release regular, well-packaged Hip Hop mixtapes at a time when no other DJ was doing so. These mix tapes earned him his props and a slot on the Capital rap show with Tim Westwood from 93 to 95. His mixtapes are now sold all over the world. The man has done it all from providing cuts on various tracks for the likes of Roots Manuva, Dido, Jehst, Skitz and Lewis Parker to promoting Londons premier Hip Hop jams (The Hop and Live & Direct).

MK held down one of the most popular shows on London based Hip Hop station Itch FM for four years before being headhunted by Kiss 100 FM. He joined the station in May 2004, initially hosting their Thursday night Hip Hop show alongside DJ Skully. Providing the very best in upfront Hip Hop from the U.S. & the UK, the show is essential listening. Guests have included Rev Run, Guru, Russell Simmons, Jehst, LL Cool J, Roots Manuva, Lupe Fiasco, The Beatnuts, Young Jeezy, DJ Babu, Boot Camp Clik, Maseo, Pharoahe Monch, Skinnyman, Percee P, Madlib, Task Force and Peanut Butter Wolf.

MK continues to tour the world as Roots Manuva’s DJ and is also a member of the powerhouse DJ crew Extended Players, alongside Shortee Blitz, Mr Thing and Harry Love. He judged the DMC UK & World finals between 1995-2004, helping to determine the outcome of winners such as DJs Craze, A-Trak, Plus One and Tony Vegas. He was behind the homegrown Hip Hop anthem Its All Live on Stonegroove Recordings, has released two volumes of his London Underground mix CDs to great acclaim and recently he compiled & mixed Bangers & Mash Vol. 2 (out now on Boombox). MK’s mixtape buzz led him to ink a deal with Antidote / Sanctuary Records for his first official album “Above Board”. Just released, it boasts 100% exclusive tracks from the cream of the UK Hip Hop scene. The first single lifted from the album is the DJ MK & Fallacy club banger My Show, which also finds MK weighing in with his debut production credit.
