Ever since he first saw Gemini working his magic at Slide Saturdays at the Warehouse, Dylan has been focused on learning the art of deejaying. When he bought his first pair of Technics 1200s in October of 2005, he had only seen a couple deejays before and he had only a rough idea of what he was supposed to do. A little bit of music theory can go a long way. Soon, Dylan was beatmatching, making cds and expanding his musical knowledge and repertoire. Dylan could often be found at Phonics – the local record, store, as he was addicted. From progressive and electro to tech trance and hard house, his styles continued to grow. Although he mainly sticks to house and trance, it wouldn’t be unusual to hear breaks or even speed garage, coming from his decks, depending on the night. He frequented Rise Thursdays at Manhattans where residents Titus1 and Amdiem proved to be large influences. After playing numerous house parties around town, Dylan and some friends threw a series of successful parties in Limelight Ultralounge. Tequila Nightclub soon offered Dylan a Wednesday night residency alongside Amdiem. Remix Wednesdays was born, and Dylan had the opportunity to play with many of Western Canada’s best deejays. One of his fondest memories is playing at Y! Afterhours in Edmonton. Never bored with his turntables, he has been learning how to scratch and even spins hip hop on the rare occasion. With so much support from his friends, Dylan has been able to continue playing across the province. Production is on the horizon for Dylan Kennedy so expect to hear plenty of harmonic fusion from this young DJ in the future.
