Keith MacKenzie & D:RC – Another Time Another Place


This joint mix originated from a conversation we had about how different dance music was when we both started out as DJs. Not better or worse; just different. Genres didn’t mean much. No elevated stages. People danced with little concept of who was behind the decks.

We wanted to recapture some of that free-flowing vibe. We threw some of our old school influences in with the brand new, and maybe took some more stylistic chances than we usually would in a live setting. Whether you’ve experienced it or not, we hope you listen to this and get a feel for what we call ANOTHER TIME/ANOTHER PLACE.

Keith MacKenzie Presents Illeven Days Of Christmas



If you love the 808 bass and breaks are your thing then this mix is for you. Keith MacKenzie has tried to round up the year of 2019 with a continuous mix of music he has been playing out over 2019 as well as some exclusive new tunes, edits and remixes.

When I was approached with the idea to create an end of the year mix, I immediately knew I wanted to create something that summarized my year behind the decks, as a “thank you” to all the people who experienced it with me. Fleeting dancefloor moments are hard to capture, but I’ve tried to pack this one full of musical highlights from this year’s gigs. To that end, I’ve included some recent releases that caught my ear, several exclusive dancefloor edits, some faves from the recent Illeven:Eleven Recordings catalog, as well as a sprinkling of what to expect next from myself and my favorite artists continuously pumping out awesome new music. Hopefully, you found the soundtrack to your favorite holiday gathering and I look forward to running into you in 2020! (Merry Christmas!) ” – K McK

Keith MacKenzie & DJ Fixx – The Armory Podcast 165



The unique stylings of Keith MacKenzie & DJ Fixx are well flexed in this their 3rd mix for the Armory Podcast, Breaks, Bass and Trap music are highlighted in this mix.

Keith MacKenzie has emerged as one of the driving forces behind the global breakbeat scene, regularly gigging across the US and Europe. Now based in Chicago, Keith spent his formative years in the now legendary Florida rave scene racking up early credits on influential labels like DJ Icey’s Zone Records and After Dark before launching his own label. Illeven:Eleven Recordings, now in its 11th year of operations, built a reputation for releasing quality collaborations from a diverse roster of artists (Audiostalkers, Deekline & Ed Solo, Fixx, Infiniti, Bass Kleph, Gigi Barocco, Rico Tubbs, Sporty-O, Sue Cho and Whiskey Pete have all released on the label) making it a Beatport mainstay in the process. Under the informal moniker of KMFX alongside Fixx he’s gone on to release internationally on labels like Deekline’s Rat Records, as well as Punks, the venerable UK imprint formed by breakbeat stalwarts Stanton Warriors.

In 2012 Keith teamed up with long time creative collaborators Fixx and D:RC to form Smookie Illson, a new bass music alias for studio experiments that fall outside the rather strict umbrella of breakbeat music. After trying their hand at everything from electro house to moombahton (signing their first demos to Potty Mouth Music in the process) they found their footing in the EDM “trap” scene, churning out bootlegs and originals at a brisk pace and gaining steady support from fans and peers alike. Their 2013 bootleg remix of Yo Majesty’s ‘Club Action’ turned into one of the longest-running festival season selections, gaining support year after year from scene favorites like Skrillex & Diplo, Baauer, RL Grime, Brillz, and Loudpvck. 2015 saw Smookie Illson releasing their ‘Compound Riddims EP’ a highly-rated collab with the UK’s Ragga Twins on Play Me Records, as well as releases on Seattle’s Simplify Records and Australia’s Safari Music.

Over the past 15 years, breakbeat pioneer DJ Fixx has been stocking the shelves of record stores everywhere. Said by many as one of the most innovative and consistent producers in the industry, he continues to deliver some of the most sought after breakbeat tracks available. Making his debut in 1998, Fixx produced over 75 anthems on the classic Kaleidoscope Music label. Many of these timeless tracks are still played frequently today. This was then followed by Fixx’s own personal imprint, Bottom-End Records (2004-2008). Managed by Afterdark, the BER trademark produced some of the biggest anthems in the industry, easily claiming the spot of one of the top five best-selling domestic labels in the country. Alongside of Keith MacKenzie, Fixx is currently a leading producer for Keith’s illeven:eleven label. Frequent solo installments can be found on ILL, as well as collaborations with Keith under the production duo ‘KMFX’. With over 150 12-inch releases, over 300 exclusive digital releases, and twelve massively-distributed CDs under his belt, Fixx has assembled one impressive Discography. All of this resulting in one of the strongest and most loyal followings in the industry.
