Barcelona-based, UK house producer and label boss Dan McKie heads into the second half of 2019 with new single ‘Old Skool New Kool’, out NOW on McKie’s 33 Music imprint.
A minimal cut brimming with tightly paced energy primed for the dance floor’s dark hours, the original edit sees McKie flick vocal samples and a smattering of disco melody up against relentless rhythms and brooding basslines.
