Interview: Khen

With Guy J, Sasha, industry media and an exponentially growing fan base across the globe, all signs point to Khen as the next big thing to come out of the dance music hot bed that is Israel.

After years of honing his skills both in the studio and behind the decks, his music has since reached Guy Mantzur‘s Plattenbank imprint, as well as Nick Warren’s Hope, Hernan Cattaneo’s Sudbeat, John Digweed‘s Bedrock, and Guy J’s Lost & Found.

Report: Straf_Werk @ Scheepsbouwloods – 2 December

The water’s got an icy gloom, you can see your breath and you’re waiting impatiently for the ferry arrive to take you across the water. Usually the concept of being freezing & anticipating my night out would deter me slightly, but all these factors added to the excitement. 95% of people are all in the same boat, pardon the pun, then a mass herd of people eagerly scuttle off the ferry to the entrance of STRAF_WERK – Scheepsbouwloods. For some reason I didn’t expect the venue to be as big or as cool as it was, despite the fact each ... Read more
