My Record Collection by MK

In My Record Collection, we dig down to the bottom of musicians' souls to find out what the most treasured parts of their record collection are. This week, it's the turn of DJ MK, let's see what he chooses...

 

Check out a selection of MK's picks in this playlist...

 

The first record I ever bought with my own money was…

"This is Kiss - Alive II. I was young and I only had $7 in my pocket. I really wanted the double vinyl album, so I found a sale sticker for $7 and replaced it. I wouldn't recommend doing that, but I would do it again in a heartbeat for this record."

 

The record that made me want to be in a band was…

"More Kiss, this Destroyer. The album cover was the first thing that caught my eye, their look was so different. They were able to make cool music, while also being pioneers of fashion and lifestyle. I knew I wanted to make that kind of an impact as an artist and express myself in multiple ways."

 

The record I've played more than any other is…

"This is 'My Head Is A Jungle (MK Remix)'. I still get nervous to put it on, since I had been playing it for so long. But to this day, everyone is just as excited to hear it as the first time I played it."

 

The record that always makes me feel good is…

"I'd say Depeche Mode - People Are People. I was a teenager and had no problems and no bills to pay - the best time of your life in some ways. I still listen to it from time to time and it puts me in a good place."

 

The record I turn to when I'm feeling down is…

"Bob Marley - Jamming. Duh..."

 

The record with my favourite cover art is…

"This is Ohio Players - Fire. Just check out the cover. You'll see."

 

The record with my favourite title is…

"Depeche Mode - Enjoy The Silence. I wish I would have thought of that, it's the perfect title for a music album."

 

The record I can't understand why everybody loves is…

"This is PSY - Gangnam Style. Over a billion views? Really?" 

 

The last record I bought was…

"A Tribe Called Quest - We Got It From Here…Thank You 4 Your Service. Had to have their final album, it’s such a great one."

 

The record I'm most looking forward to hearing in 2017 is...

"I don’t know if it’s coming in 2017, but the next Depeche Mode album. Because it's Depeche Mode."

 

The greatest record of all time is…

"This has to be Parliament - Mothership Connection. Every track was a jam. All of the band members were brilliant at their craft, and they inspired a lot of great bands after them."

 

MK's new single 'My Love 4 U' is out now and available here in hmv's digital store.
