KON

Musician/Artist Claim this listing

Kon has been digging in crates since 1976, DJing since 1985, and spinning in clubs since 1991. He is one half of Kon and Amir, who released the acclaimed “On Track” and “Off Track” series on BBE Records where they introduced rare grooves to a new audience. His remixes of dance classics prompted Gilles Peterson to name him “Edit/rework King of 2011”, and feature him prominently on his BBC Radio shows.
Kon takes a more modest approach, noting that Kon means “King of Nothing,” and seeks to place the love of music above his own work. The last of an increasingly rare breed of dedicated crate diggers, Kon has for years brought his deep knowledge of obscure goodies to clubs and festivals worldwide. He has also spread his gospel to the masses through critically heralded releases on such respected imprints as Basic Fingers, Hands of Time and BBE. Beyond collecting vinyl and re-editing classics, he has been part of Boston’s Hip-Hop community for nearly 30 years, and has preserved the development of it as a true culturist. Most people know him as just a DJ, but he has history as a writer, music producer, and b-boy.

Kon’s vast knowledge of music has resulted in him creating some of the most dance floor friendly edits and remixes today.
