DJ Profile - Jon Kennedy

The legend of Jon Kennedy started in Stockport where he is hailed as almost certainly one of their three most talented exports but he now finds himself in sunny Bristol. After releasing on some of the most influential UK electronic labels over the past 8 years, including Grand Central Records and Tru Thoughts, Jon has moved to a US label with a new album out this summer.

He continues to DJ all over Europe on a monthly basis and his global musical musings with his live band have reached as far as Russia, China and Singapore. Jon has amassed a huge fan base on the way and boasts an international following, partly because he’s so easy to find and responds to most people who contact him. He records under his real name, his website is also his name and his openness has encouraged people to make contact with the person behind the music - 3,756 stalkbook and 36,347 myspace friends (and counting) tells its own story.

It’s hard to pin down Jon’s style due to his varying tastes and diverse record collection but recently he’s been remixing the likes of the “Withnail and I” soundtrack, Bob Marley, Barclay James Harvest, Aim, Olive, Toob and Kid Loco.

Jon continues to stand firm and prolific in the industry and writes for various music and art magazines including the mighty Modart Magazine where he is the music editor.

To catch Jon in action this summer he’s playing regularly across Bristol in all the coolest spots including sets at Golden Lion, Tobacco Factory, Start The Bus and Timbuktu in August.
