The Beatport sales charts are often dominated by the latest international club smashes, but its vault of music runs deep and covers a wide variety of artists and sounds, which is why XLR8R has been asked to curate a special two-week series of Beatport charts by some of our favorite DJs and producers. When it comes to old-school NY house and garage, it's hard to think of someone more influential than MK, who remixed everyone in the '90s and is responsible for an impossibly long list of big tunes. After spending the past few years focusing on production for the likes Will Smith and Pitbull (no joke), MK has been moving back toward the dancefloor and DJing lately, and here he's put together a list of 10 of his current favorites.

1. Creep "You feat. Nina Sky" (Creep INTL)
2. Afrojack & Steve Aoki "No Beef feat. Miss Palmer (Vocal Mix)" (Wall Recordings)
3. Kings Of Tomorrow "I Need To Love Me feat. April (Sandy Rivera's Club Mix)" (Defected)
4. Lazaro Casanova "Morning Confession" (petFood)
5. Micky Slim "I'm A Freak (Gina Turner Edit)" (Mixmash Records)
6. Laidback Luke, Nouveau Yorican & Gina Turner "Chiuso" (Defected)
7. Gregor Salto & DJ Gregory "Paris Luanda (Part 1)" (Defected)
8. Dennis Ferrer "The Red Room (Obj Vocal Mix)" (Objektivity)
9. Lauren Flax "You've Changed feat. Sia (MK D-troit Mix)" (DANR Music)
10. Beckwith "Higher (Your Love)" (Next Plateau)
