ARTIST BIOGRAPHY

When Pete Tong, of BBC’s Radio 1, proclaimed Carl Kennedy ‘one the world’s best undiscovered DJs,’ he clearly was able to see what vast numbers of club goers were soon to discover; that Carl was destined to become a big name in dance music. Born in Birmingham, England, Kennedy made the bold move to New York when he was 20 with his eyes set on the bright lights of big city life. In 1998 Carl scored his first professional break, becoming the resident DJ for a small house party called GBH which later went on to become one of New York’s most prominent and longest running Friday night events. During his time at GBH, Carl entertained more than a quarter of a million people and, on his own terms, did his bit to revitalize New York’s house music scene, all the while building his profile and reputation as a major player on the DJ circuit. 2000 saw Carl move with GBH to Centro-fly (voted America’s no.1 club in 2001/2002), which saw him perform alongside heavyweights like The Chemical Brothers, Roger Sanchez, Dimitri from Paris, Seb Fontaine, and Erick Morillo. Today, Carl tours regularly throughout every continent across the globe and is a firm favourite at Ibiza’s famous Pacha and Space Terrace. He’s also performed at the Ultra Music Festival in Miami and the Budapest Love Parade in Hungary, where eight hundred thousand music mad people danced up frenzy to Kennedy’s white-hot DJ set. It’s Australia though, where the DJ-producer calls his second home. After mixing the critically-acclaimed Onelove vol.2 compilation CD in 2005 with local gun Grant Smillie of TV Rock fame, Kennedy has become a firm local favourite. The man now spends up to six months a year in his adopted country. Having snared a residency at Sydney’s no.1 club Famous, he also tours the country stopping in at regional towns and the other major cities along the way.
