For no. 111 we feature a promising resident of ours: mr. Kevin Duane. He was already in the mixtape series before, and this time around he is making his mark with an hour-long journey through dark, future-minded groovers.
The NY-born and Amsterdam-based Kevin Duane has been making waves in the Amsterdam scene for quite a while now. As his experience grew the last couple of years, so did the quality of his sets. He gradually grew into his sound characterized by fat, rolling bass lines, lush vocals and dark undertones that aim for the darker side of house music, always with an eye on the sound of tomorrow.
He has had no shortage concerning bookings, with regular gigs at respected venues like Studio 80, Chicago Social Club, AIR and Club Up. This Summer we will see a lot more of Kevin at festivals too. Already having a nice amount of festivals under his belt – with the Union, Park Am See and Amsterdam Open AIR – he’s got more lined up in the coming months with All We Want Festival, Electronic Picnic and Straf_Werk Festival.
Next to building on his DJ career, Kevin also works as the A&R manager for Armada Music’s sub labels Subjekt Recordings and Armada Deep. Releases already include names like Eric Volta, Luis Leon, Atapy, Tim Paris Stefan Z and disCerN (Jonny Cruz & Silky), with many more to follow. For Subjekt Recordings Kevin has defined a clear musical brand of innovative groovers that are hard not to be swept away by. Some of the tracks you’ll be hearing in this mix will in fact be released on the imprint very soon.
