Kenny Ken

Kenny Ken started DJing back in 1989,before that he was working as a ticket collector and railman on the London Underground. He got into playing music by going to the early warehouse parties like,Genesis, Sunrise, Biology, Energy and so on.”I used to go to all the so called incrowd parties where DJʼs like Grooverider, Fabio, Frankie Valentine, Tony Wilson, Paul Oakenfold, Bones and Carl Cox used to play”. It was while going to these all night parties and then having to go straight to work that he decided to try being a DJ.”I went out and bought myself a set of Technics and started to practice and was given a really good mixing lesson by Dean who was one half of Dem 2 who were big back then. I started of by playing Acid House and Garage at small gigs for my mates and playing regularly on the radio on a pirate station called Centerforce which I left after about a year and moved to Dance FM along with DJʼs like Mr C and Rob Atkinson. One night I was at a Genesis rave and Lenny Dee hadn’t turned up and the DJ who was playing had another gig to go to so I begged Wayne the promoter to let me go home and get my records. I came back with a converted milk crate full of records and got behind the decks which is when my bottle went a bit cos now Iʼm on the best party at that time, in front of a massive crowd of hardcore ravers. I played for about half hour and played well before Lenny turned up. That was when I decided to leave my job and start Djing full time.
