MC Kie: 'UKG Chronicle Will Go Down In History'

UK garage legend MC Kie has urged music lovers of all ages to attend the UKG Chronicle event taking place in Wembley Arena later this month.

Kie’s known for co-writing hit track Fly Bi (above) and being among the pioneers of the UKG movement in Britain and Cyprus (Aiya Napa) during the late 90s and early millennium.

‘In 1999 and 2000 UK garage was like the new wave of pop music of that era,’ Kie recalls. ‘It was the most listened to sound on pirate radio, and also being played on commercial stations.’

He adds: ‘Big companies like Ministry and Warner were releasing pure garage compilations, and pubs, bars and clubs were playing it all the time. You couldn’t get away from UKG or its influence back then.’

The UKG Chronical is set to take place on Saturday 31st May to mark the genre’s 20th anniversary, and will feature performances from leading acts including Ms Dynamite, DJ Luck & MC Neat and Artful Dodger.

Kie will host the event, which aims to give the public an audio and visual history lesson on the movement.

‘UKG is a music that can be enjoyed by everybody,’ he says. ‘It’s going to be a fun night out, and one that will go down in history. Come and be part of it.’
