Dance music hitmaker MK has dropped an addictive web game called ‘Chemical Chase’, based around his latest single Chemical.
With the aim of navigating an animatronic dog’s head through the city at night, the game is set to the soundtrack of Chemical, which was released at the end of May.
The game is dropping alongside a selection of remixes of the summer anthem, including LP Giobbi’s rework on July 16th, MK’s fresh take on the 23rd July, and rounding out the remix package is Nic Fanciulli’s remix, coming on July 30th. The new remixes can be heard in the web game by players as they drop too.
"I’ve always been into video games. I owned every game system from Atari 2600, ColeCovision, Intellivision to every Nintendo, Xbox and Playstation system, with a few arcade machines in between”, MK explains. “I wanted to create something fun for my fans whilst we all wait for shows to come back.”
The remixes and game follow the boundary-pushing official video, featuring the anthropomorphic dog protagonist whose head is the focal point of ‘Chemical Chase’. Touching on themes of lust, infidelity and being bound by one’s true nature, the visuals expertly blurred the lines between reality and fabrication.
Hitting the ground running, Chemical was crowned BBC Radio 1 ‘Hottest Record in the World’ by Annie Mac, ‘Essential New Tune’ by Pete Tong and ‘Jam Hot’ by MistaJam on Capital Dance. It is also featured on the cover of Spotify’s Massive Dance Hits, Apple Music’s danceXL and Amazon’s Sound of Modern House, since amassing 3.7 million Spotify streams. MK also just released his reworked version of Celeste’s hit Stop This Flame.
