All About the DJ
Glasgow based DJ Kenny Campbell is rapidly gaining a reputation for his talents playing tech music. Possibly the most versatile and technically talented DJ we've come across, able to play a set seamlessly, combining a variety of different styles, with ease. Be it techno, minimal, tech house or deep house, he'll play it, if the time is right, and the crowd wants it. Some of Kenny's bookings include OM96, Berlin; Red Bull Music Academy Afterparty; Studio 24, Edinburgh; King Haakon, Isle of Skye.
Oh, and we hear he likes an after party or two...
From a very young age Kenny has had a keen interest in electronic music. This interest was to become a life long passion upon hearing Mescalinum United's 'We Have Arrived'. This track triggered something. The track was darker than anything Kenny had heard before. It had drive and bite. It was to become the track that made Kenny decide that DJing would be the path he would follow.
Heavily influenced by the harder techno sounds of the early Nineties and the second wave of Detroit techno, Kenny began hammering underground clubs and free parties into submission.
His style became more twisted, more extreme. Hardcore was dominant in the underground but it wasn't enough for Kenny. He wanted it harder still. More importantly though, he wanted it to be techno.
As time progressed Kenny moved away from the hardcore scene in general and back to his roots. Techno is what he wanted and it was techno he was going to have.
Taking inspiration from artists like FUSE, Speedy J and Plastikman, Kenny was more determined than ever to succeed within the techno scene
2005 was to prove a pivotal year for Kenny and the path he would follow musically. Minimal techno was starting to become more popular and Kenny was already on it. After seeing Richie Hawtin at Sonar that year Kenny mind was set on this new, stripped back techno. He replaced hard, brash tracks with spaced out grooves. The transition between these styles was seamless and Kenny most definitely felt at home. His sets now seemed to flow much more naturally.
During this time Kenny was fortunate enough to pick up some international bookings. He played in Dublin, Ireland and Antwerp, Belgium. A chance meeting also lead to a slot in the famous Bootleg DJ Cafe in Rotterdam, Netherlands.
In 2008 Kenny decided to move away from traditional DJing using vinyl and CD's and moved to a completely digital set up. This move allowed him much more creative freedom when playing. His sets no longer moved along track by track, but were built from layers and loops. Mixing/remixing/editing all in a live format. Armed with this new technology his sets became more dynamic with each one being a completely new experience. There was a freedom to create that had never been possible before.
2009 saw Kenny host his first radio show on Liquifi Radio, an online radio station. The show ran until the station closed down and allowed him to reach a new audience and experiment with different styles of music. from this he is now a regular contributor to several radio shows with guest mixes and has several mixes released across differing podcasts.
This year also saw Kenny achieve one of his main goals and play in Berlin.
With regular bookings at both home and abroad including his new residency on the remote Isle of Skye the future for Kenny can only get better. As the technology he has embraced becomes more powerful so do his performances. Behind the blinking lights from a host of controllers Kenny now conducts the dancefloor in the way only he can.
He now blends minimal, techno, tech and deep house with such ease that the change of styles is unnoticeable.
No one is left disappointed when Kenny is in control.
