Since early 2009, KennyJames grew to love the electronica music scene by attending popular shows such as Armin Van Buuren, BT, and other legendary trance artists. He quickly became bored with the trance scene, so eager to expand his experience in the industry, he ventured out to absorb other styles. KennyJames was invited to see MSTRKRFT at the Starlight room and was instantly hooked. He searched for other musical acts with the same energy, dynamics and motion. KennyJames stumbled upon established Californian DJ, Steve Aoki. He immediately became captivated of the liveliness of these party style shows. This made him attracted to other artists such as The Bloody Beetroots, Congorock, Crookers, Cyberpunkers, and his all-time favourite, Designer Drugs.
Wanting to create a similar party sensation with his choice of music, he picked up a Pioneer set-up and began mixing in his bedroom. In a matter of a few months, KennyJames won a local DJ competition at Twist Ultra Lounge, which in turn blew open the doors for him very quickly. By the summer of 2010, he already landed a residency at Twist Ultra Lounge, which again opened even more doors for him. This landed DJ KennyJames a constant guest DJ spot almost every Friday and Saturday for months at popular clubs like Twist, Buffalo Underground, Fluid, Detox, Empire, and The Bank Ultra Lounge, and most recently Vinyl.
DJ KennyJames has an extremely unique style that can only be experienced live. Playing all the hottest tracks, you won’t be disappointed after one of his shows; you’re sure to be addicted after one of his sets!
