In a league of his own when it comes to getting elbows dirty and dusty digging in the crates, Boston’s very own Kon is so far off his self-effacing acronym “King of Nothing”.
In fact, alongside being heralded a king DJ by super-heavyweights likes Gilles Peterson and Tim Sweeney, Kon is also a rare breed of music aficionado that transcends all rankings, positioning himself at the forefront of a group of anonymous multi-track collectors who posses digital versions of the original recording sessions of some of pop music’s greatest artists such as Stevie Wonder, Barry White, Michael Jackson, George Benson and more.
It comes as no surprise then that when he puts his hands on soul classics and turns them into warm dance-floor edits they punch harder than any of his contemporaries. Digging in crates since 1976, DJing since 1985 and spinning in clubs since 1991, Kon’s knowledge of music across the spectrum remains unrivalled, and we’re happy to be bringing you a brand new and exclusive mix he’s recorded for Dimensions ahead of the festival this month. Expect rare soul cuts, jazzy house tips, crispy funk grooves and everything in between.
Head to Dimensions Festival’s Soundcloud for more mixes in the series from the likes of Max Graef, Dego, Lefto, Al Dobson Jr and more.
