With over 25 years of music under his belt, dance music veteran and Glasgow Underground owner Kevin McKay is set to embark on his next project – an innovative concept album which will reimagine a selection of classic tracks and bring them up to date for today’s dancefloors without using a single sample. The first single from the album sees him teaming up with the #1 selling house artist David Penn on gospel-house cut, ‘Hallelujah’.
A cover of Randy Crawford’s 1977 track of the same name, ‘Hallelujah’ is a feel-good slice of classic 90s house, with room-filling vocals, melodic keys and a grooving bassline that drives the track from start to finish. Huge build-ups and hands-in-the-air breakdowns make this one an instant party-starter. Now revamped with a fresh, futuristic feel whilst still capturing the nostalgic elements of its era, ‘Hallelujah’ is ready for round two.
Glasgow Underground’s journey began in 1997, the label’s compilations, singles and DIY approach snowballed into global success and is favourited by some of the biggest names in the business. Through all things house and deep house, the label has made its mark across the world of dance music time and time again with Kevin at the helm since day one. Now putting his energy into forward-thinking, contemporary productions, the aim is to infuse a new lease of life into classic samples and songs, making them accessible for modern genres, sets and parties.
Pioneering a sound and style only identifiable to him, it’s easy to hear why Kevin’s success continues to grow, and now he’s about to release a track that will kickstart the next steps of his story. With a brand-new album in the pipeline, ‘Hallelujah’ is the perfect way to introduce this game-changer.May 19, 2019
