this & more of that

When we first met drummer/electronic producer/DJ/vinyl aficionado Jon Kennedy, he looked like Leo Fitzpatrick’s brother and just released his debut “We’re Just Waiting For You Now“ via Tru Thoughts. Almost fifteen years - and several albums, 12’s and remixes - later he proofed himself to be one of the most consistent beatsmiths in the music biz.

When he’s not touring the world as a drummer with a six-piece band, he’s delivering heavily eclectic DJ mixes favored by those who don’t necessarily connect a frenetic night under the mirror ball with four-to-the-floor only. 

For our Monday Mixtape series he proves exactly that, and it’s actually pretty hard to imagine someone else integrating Nick Drake, Purity Ring and Dopedemand in the very same mix. Enjoy. And don’t forget to check his website for the latest details in terms of DJ gigs and releases.
