Apparently named King of the Edit since the 1980s, Manhattan DJ Danny Krivit’s (aka Mr K) latest delivery instils the title bestowed upon him some 30 years ago. A recognised selector, Danny’s remixing and production capabilities have touched hundreds of records – with his sound help shaping the New York City sound.
Opening the two-track release is his edit of summer track The Vision’s ‘Heaven’, interweaving a bassline with Andreya Triana’s vocal to produce an extended, DJ friendly mix that he apparently sent crowds wild with at Dekmental Festival.
Up next, Mr K delves a little deeper into the Defected catalogue, trying his hand at The DangerFeel Newbies’ ‘What Am I Here For (Original NDATL Vocal)’. His stripped back version extends the jazzy, percussive original, as smooth vocals and keys bring the release to a close.
It’s out 1 November on Defected Records.
