N.E.C. head honcho, Kevin Energy is firmly established as a DJ in the top echelon of both the Hardcore and Harddance scenes, with bookings the length and breadth of the UK and all around the World.
Energised, always and musically innovative, there aren’t many crowd-pleasers around that can rock a crowd quite like Kevin Energy but for a man who earned his first big room rave sets before he was old enough to legally attend them it is hardly surprising. His fresh sound and ever enthusiastic mixing style make him a favourite behind the decks as he always delivers service with a smile and with more scratching and rockin’, upfront tracks than you can shake a glow stick at.
From the early days of Dream FM and ‘Hardcore Fever’ Kevin has moved from strength to strength. With running the Nu Energy Collective including some long established labels – Nu Energy Records, Relentless Vinyl, Liquid Hardcore, Elevate Whites and NEC Live, brand new digital label concepts and LIVE PA, Freeformation party nights, his Elevate Hard Dance crusade, Hardcore Heaven compilation mix and USA domination, Kevin is by far one of the busiest DJ’s/producers/promoters in the scene, but despite his insanely busy work ethic he will still be seen partying it up at events before and after his sets wearing oversized hats, Hawaiian shirts and dressing up as crazy Dutch man, surely why he is a pioneer of the Wise Up, Get Stupid party ethic!
Whether it be his blistering Hardcore Heaven + Elevate CD mixes, his explosive technically tight DJ sets at HTID, Frantic Slammin Vinyl + Sundissential or even his rave rockin production work, Kevin always manages to balance a pacey, instantly uplifting energy with a forward thinking approach that pushes back the boundaries of Hardcore and Harddance. Always playing for the crowd and the moment. Kevin’s experience of knowing what to pull out, coupled with his quick skills + Intense style insures his sets always stand and leave a crowd that are eager to experience his music once more.
Kevin’s current NEC operation is now the leading the way in representing underground hardbeats Worldwide. The two new sites have just launched and show the evolution of the NEC. http://www.hardbeatstore.com is the brand new online store stocking the most upfront releases throughout all genres of underground Hard Dance. http://www.nuenergycollective.com is the hot new website that will have NEC news, a concise, up to date artist profile section and more competitions and giveaways than you can shake a stick at.
On the bookings front Kev is still going to be blasting his powering sounds far and wide and is completely in tune with what the dance floors are looking for: “ In the Hardcore scene I am playing a fine line between Freeform and cheese at the moment, always playing for the moment and never pre planning anything as that is what gets the best results. I love the current vibes and atmospheres across the country and hope everyone can keep an open mind and enjoy the different sounds. For harddance I’m cutting and chopping between more styles and flavours then ever to keep a really fresh flow of music rockin’ the floor”
With the Nu Energy Collective Live PA, new websites, album concepts, more bookings inland and offshore than conceivable for one person, the future is looking bright and busy for the man that has his finger in more pies than Luke Pie Maker!
