Kennedy Jones’ influence on the current state of Bass Music is the stuff of legend, and his journey from troubled teenager bouncing around Orange County, saved by the power of public school music classes, to modern dance floor destroyer is a hero’s journey.
He counts the Mexican community in which he was nurtured as his extended family, and one of his biggest claims to fame was his remix of Elvis Crespo’s “Suavemente”, which has netted 2.3 million plays on Soundcloud (2.5 Million YouTube plays) and knocked the global dance music world off it’s feet. It’s clear Kennedy Jones offers the dance music world a multifaceted reality, one based on a deep respect for the diversity of people and cultures and a commitment to truth seeking and truth telling. After hustling like mad for years as a voracious Poetry consuming Hip Hop Lyricist, drum and bass and dubstep MC, and ½ of KleptoMaddox, that special mix of timing and preparation Kennedy Jones takes so seriously paid off, and “Suavemente” put him on the map. Kennedy Jones continued to rise through the ranks.
Kennedy Jones has nothing but fire on deck in the coming months including a collaboration with ETC!ETC! & Sak Noel, Salvatore Ganacci, and others!
