Now, Englund who will serve as the first artist to release an album on MK’s AREA10 Records (via Ultra Music) come together for their first ever proper collaboration. Anabel Englund and MK have released their new single “Underwater.”
MK who has remixed and produced for such pop powerhouses like Dua Lipa, Rihanna, Alicia Keys and Mary J. Blige, has created a sonic bed for Anabel’s captivating vocals to mesmerizing effect. Immersed in deep house grooves and a driving beat, Anabel entices like a sirens call, “now we are falling underwater.”“I love working with MK because he’s crazy talented & even after his many years of success he is humble and sweet,” shares Englund. “You know you’re gonna have a good time when you get to spend the day with MK!”
Anabel Englund first worked with MK back in 2012 on Hot Creations. After collaborating with MK, she was featured live and on record as a key member of the legendary group Hot Natured with Jamie Jones and Lee Foss. Shortly after, Englund, MK and Foss worked together on the Pleasure State project and released notable songs like “Ghost In The System” and “Electricity,” a lauded track that made it onto the BBC Radio 1 end-of-year Essential Mix play. MK went on to remix her single “So Hot” with Nightlapse transforming it to become one of her more successful tracks, garnering over six million streams on Spotify alone and hitting #1 on Dance Radio for eight weeks in a row.
With over 30 years in the game and over six hundred million career streams accumulated, MK is one of the most idolized figures from the world of dance music. He is best known for the platinum-selling “Back & Forth” and “17” which has sold more than one million copies in the U.K. alone. “17” was preceded by “Piece of Me” in 2016, another U.K. platinum-selling record to add to MK’s pile of growing accolades.
