MKEY, the musical alias of Scottish DJ and producer, Mikey Watson,
MKEY’s sound sits firmly in the realms of underground house music, from deep and minimalistic, to solid, grooving tech house. Each of his sets has nods toward his influences within the underground scene.
Based in South East England MKEY has steadily made his mark gaining bookings in some of London’s most established clubs, including Ministry of Sound, Egg, Studio 338 and Fire. MKEY has supported international acts including Camelphat, Groove Armada, De La Swing, Paco Osuna, Doorly, wAFF, PAX, GW Harrison, Jack Swift and Devstar.
In the summer of 2018, MKEY was featured in several articles by Ibiza Club News and Rate My Rave, these quickly led his Ibiza debut at Super-Club ‘Eden’. He then went on to play Ibiza Rocks, and a sold out ‘Hi Ibiza’ show for Bodyworks. He has also had other international appearances in Cyprus and Malta as well as festival bookings for ElRow Town Festival and We Are FSTVL.
MKEY has worked relentlessly in the studio with releases on established record labels such as Distortion, New Violence, Tonic D, Observatory Music, Stashed & more. MKEY has consistently appeared in the Beatport charts and playlists.
In 2020 MKEY decided to take a different approach to his music and launched his own imprint ‘UNOU Records’. “Unsound or Underground” will focus on giving upcoming talent a place to showcase themselves among some of the best artists the scene has to offer, MKEY infuses his own sound of stripped back underground house and techno through the label. With a 2021 release schedule already stacked up and the positive influence MKEY portrays to the music scene there’s no limit to what the artist can achieve throughout 2021 and beyond.
