Kenny “Dope” Gonzalez – Interviewed by Danny Holloway + KD Tribute Mix by DJ Destroyer (04.14.13)

“It’s so hard to write something brief about Kenny “Dope” Gonzalez, his history is so long + dense. He has really helped alter the way we experience music with his productions, remixes, solo projects, Masters At Work output and releases on his Kay-Dee imprint. Kenny is a beat-head and rabid wax collector. The titles in his personal 45 collection are ridiculous. Nearly all of his sevens are in immaculate condition and triple sleeved. The big man with the love of rhythm-driven music and passion for powerful club cuts dropped by the dublab studio for this interview before heading to the airport to board another plane to further spread the fever.” – Danny Holloway

 

Kenny didn’t have time to drop a mix while at dublab, so long-time fan DJ Destroyer assembled a KD tribute mix. These are soul steeped classics that never fade. Enjoy!
