GLASGOW Underground head Kevin McKay is one of the busiest people in dance music.

Having spent has spent many years deeply entrenched in the scene, Kevin has done everything from working in high profile collaborative duos with Omid 16B, creating numerous dance floor anthems, discovering and co-producing Mylo’s seminal album, Destroy Rock & Roll album and holding down a residency at Mick’s Garage in London.

Glasgow Underground is approaching its 700th release and Kevin himself has just dropped an essential selection of music with his new Goodies collection. The long player takes in a broad array of remixes and originals from Glasgow Underground.

We caught up with Kevin this week and he has compiled a playlist of goodies that you are bound to hear in his DJ sets this summer. Listen and read what he had to say about each of the tracks he selected below.

Jen Payne – Close Your Eyes [Glasgow Underground]

After lockdown, last summer’s partial return to clubbing was incredible. However, I felt so much pent-up energy on dancefloors that I overlooked some deeper jams. This year, everything feels more balanced, and I can’t wait to play classy, dancefloor-friendly warmers like this.


Christian Engh – Tingle [Full Pupp]

Prins Thomas knows a thing or two about how to hypnotise a dancefloor. I’ve also experienced Norwegian clubbers’ love for a trippy house banger – Aril Brikha’s Groove La Chord was an essential weapon in the 90s! So it’s no surprise that Thomas’ label Full Pupp is releasing this Christian Engh cut. “Tingle” is the thing that will stay on my USB for months. Heavy beats, funky bassline and some mesmerising synth work, make this a stone-cold killer.
