BY OCCUPY THE DISCO / RU BHATT
The OXD Mirror is a weekly music column brought to you by the boys of OCCUPY THE DISCO (OXD), a New York City based collective created by three music lovers, Ru Bhatt, Josh Appelbaum, and Tad Haes, who want to share their love for disco, house and dance music with the world.
Uzoechi Osisioma Emenike, known to the masses as MNEK, has peppered the soundscape with his unparalleled talent, through collaborations and remixes for artists such as Rudimental, Charli XCX and Duke Dumont. Now that the British teen has signed to a major record label, he's pulling out all the stops and gearing up to release of his first full-length album. The buzz around MNEK started with his release of various "refixes" of 90s hits (using his vocals and completely new backing). Browsing through his soundcloud feed makes it clear that the popular music from this 19-year-old's childhood, from garage to R&B, has influenced his style in every possible way. With 'Every Little Word,' MNEK repackages those influences and infuses some new jack swing into his already iconic souful vocal vibe. Can't wait to hear what he has in store for us next!
