Longtime Leeds tastemaker Billy Kenny has shown no signs of turning down the intensity on his American dance reign. Tackling a more aggressive sonic track than that what most Americans are used to—somewhere between that of UK garage, house, and techno—he’s an artist to get familiar with if you haven’t yet already. With releases on Dirtybird and his co-run imprint, This Ain’t Bristol, his influence in the scene is palpable and everything he touches seems to turn to gold.
Billy’s diverse delivery behind the booth is a refreshing take. His endlessly variant edits, live sampling, looping, and unexpected selections never fail to make his sets memorable.
This year Billy Kenny will be making an appearance at Your Paradise in Fiji, a destination island festival, where his crowd will be awaiting an uplifting performance to higher places in the utopian paradise. In preparation for the show, he’s provided Dancing Astronaut with an exclusive mix.
Over an hour of tunes are mashed into the mix, with an empowering array of eclectic tracks that take listeners to a private island of their own doing. Reputable hits include Billy Kenny x Mija‘s “AP Planet,” “T.M.T.Y.L” by Walker & Royce, as well as Latmun‘s Roland Clark & Simion “Chicago” remix.
Your Paradise kick-offs Dec. 6-12th in Fiji, for more information on the destination festival visit here. If you can’t catch this prime selector there, Kenny has announced a world tour, appropriately dubbed the Planet Earth tour. Tickets to each of the destinations are available here.
