  • Several artists have sampled MK's remix of "Push The Feeling On" into hits, including Pitbull for his 2009 global single "Hotel Room Service," British house duo Waze & Odyssey's 2014 UK Top 3-charting remix of R. Kelly's "Bump N' Grind," and AJ Tracey and MoStack's 2020 UK Top 5 hit "Dinner Guest."
