J:Kenzo (TEMPA, Dub Police, Kicks & Snares) UK
Hailing from Kent, in the UK J:Kenzo has been crafting his productions for some time now. Since his first official release in 2007, J:Kenzo’s jungle and techno influenced tracks have seen the light of day through labels such as Tempa, Dub Police, Argon Records, 2nd Drop and also his very own imprint Artikal Music UK.
His career took a critical turn when Youngsta became aware of his talent and took J:Kenzo under his wing. Since then tracks like ‘The Roteks’ and ‘Ruffhouse’ have had an even bigger impact on the international dubstep scene, gaining him support from selectors such as Hatcha, N-Type, Distance, DJ Laurent Garnier and Emalkay.
No wonder J:Kenzo has been blessed with resident sets at leading dubstep night FWD and London’s Fabric. J:Kenzo has recently put a focus on extensive touring throughout Europe as well as the United States, putting international sound systems to the test with his heavy and hypnotic sound.
