On the mention of the name Keren Onay, one cannot help but associate the name with a fiery blend of groovy tech and soulful house. This unique fusion merged with a vibey enthusiastic persona creates an explosive experience for any crowd. It seems ay dance floor becomes a feeding ground of charged energy from the minute he drops the first track.
With over 16 year behind the decks Keren Onay has morphed in to a versatile force in the clubbing scene. Always staying true to his sound he follows his instincts while still paying homage to his most avid listeners.
Having mixed at some of the most established clubs in Jo-burg such as Aruba, Nicci Beach, and who could forget the regular slots at Jozi’s home of the underground: Truth.
We have also heard his cutting edge sound on the dance floors of the biggest South African dance festival H2O. Keren Onay is the mastermind behind the established event Sunday Funk. This happens every Sunday in Fourways and has become the place to be every Sunday in JHB.
He has played alongside to the likes of Ryan Dent, Craig Massiv, Roger Goode, Dean Fuel, Ricardo Da Costa, Lady Lea and Guy Herman. While opening for acts such as the ingenious Trafik from Global Underground, Tiefschwarz from Souvenir Music and of course Kolombo from Lou Lou Records in Belgium.
Having risen through the ranks and determination yet still considers himself “honoured” to have placed as a resident at most of the major clubs in South Africa.
With pure passion as his driving force he has become one of the heavy weights in the industry. He has left his fans wanting more and the SA dance scene hankering to see what his next step will be.
