Kenny Glasgow is a North American electronic music pioneer, a role he’s held for over two decades. Though the Canadian star has spent the last 5 years as the half of the acclaimed duo Art Department, functioning as a musical engineer, composer of both music and lyrics, and vocalist, he is now returning to his solo roots. Before he started touring the world, releasing influential full lengths, headlining major festivals and gracing the cover of taste making magazines with Jonny White, Kenny Glasgow already had a cult and loyal following dating back to the early nineties!

The jewel in his solo crown to date is ‘A Taste of the Low Life’, a stunning debut solo LP that was a dark and gritty fusion of electronic styles on No.19 Music, and fans will be delighted to know a follow-up is the works on the same label. Aside from this standout highlight, he also released a number of perfectly formed EPs on labels like Jinx, Roger Sanchez’s Narcotic and Family Recordings and came correct as part of Method Men and Unabomber with musical partner Mario J, racking up remixes for the likes of Strictly Rhythm and Azuli. Now he is back focussing on his solo career again and has plenty lined up for 2015. 

Glasgow first became immersed in the scene as a promoter, putting on illicit warehouse parties in his native Toronto before progressing to become resident at acid house mecca The Buzz and later the world famous Industry Nightclub. It was there that he picked up a sense of what worked dance floors, both in terms of DJing and production. Always putting these lessons to great use whether solo or with Art Department, his own emotive, tortured sounding and unique gravelly vocals have very much become his trademark. 

As such his forthcoming LP and other musical projects will likely bare these hallmarks, as will the music he releases on the new label he is setting up with cohort Mr White, under the banner title of Social Experiment. It takes its name from the club nights and mix series No. 19 Music have overseen and will focus on only the most compelling club focussed music. Like the entirety of Kenny Glasgow’s career, this next solo chapter is to take him to the finest clubs and festivals around the world armed with a knowing and considered bag of music that will be put together in the sort of compelling ways only an artist of his standing can.

________________________________________________________

DISTRIKT is a non-profit electronic music collective and experiment of a few Deep End organizers of years past. Ask any one of us why, and you might get a different answer: giving back to the electronic music and alternative arts community; a desire to throw furious & fierce parties in the desert and elsewhere throughout the year; an urge to provide venues for music, dancing, and other art forms; an arrested development inability to let go and an ambition to try something new.

Our eclectic group of people offer up their talents — be it music making, drink slinging, construction craftiness, technological wizardry, performance art, or benevolent mischief. We live and breathe our ethos year round, and look forward to giving back to the community that has inspired us and bonded us together. This is our culture, this is our art, this is our gift.

We grow our community through new blood, new ideas, and old friends. We provide a venue for music, dance, and alternative art on the playa and beyond at a level of sound and fury you won’t soon forget. We want to gift you with daytime drink, dance, and a great crew of peeps and do what we do best.

DISTRIKT is a production of The Deep End 501(c)3 non-profit.
