Kevin McKay – Million Dollar Bill
The second single from Kevin’s forthcoming album ‘No Samples Were Harmed In The Making Of This Record’ is ‘Million Dollar Bill.’ It features Start The Party, dropped June 21st and sees a pedal-to-the-metal cover of Whitney Houston’s hit capture the nostalgic essence of the original, whilst introducing a contemporary edge throughout. With the likes of Alaia & Gallo, Matt Fontaine and Joshwa all featuring on the rest of the album, ‘No Samples Were Harmed In The Making Of This Record’ is a bonafide who’s-who of house royalty which is set to turn the genre on its head.
With new developments in audio recognition technology, sampling and legalities are at their most temperamental state; there is no guaranteed safe zone for producers and with so many labels re-issuing funk, soul and disco catalogues, copywriting restrictions are at an all-time high. Kevin took this situation as the main inspiration for the album’s concept and worked out how he could twist it to his advantage as an artist. Look out for the full album release in September.
