Inigo Kennedy (Token, Asymmetric, Sementica, UK)
Inigo Kennedy is a pioneering and respected techno and electronic music producer and DJ. Since early on he experimented with electronics and technology and immersed himself in the airwaves, music stores and scenes of London, Manchester and beyond. From there has evolved his distinctive sound and attitude to music making and performance – entertaining accidents, taking risks and steadfastly following his heart rather than the herd.
He is well known for always bringing technical and creative originality and skill to his work – not least to his own innovative label Asymmetric which freely criss-crossed the electronic music landscape.
His DJ schedule has taken him all over the globe where he consistently plays energetic and emotionally-charged sets – often throwing in curve-balls or nodding to classic tracks that have shaped his own musical arc.
He has been responsible for a large and diverse back catalogue of releases and remixes on a number of labels around the world and has worked under a number of aliases such as Reducer and Tomito Satori. His discography stretches to well over 100 releases on vinyl, CD and digitally on established, if not seminal, labels such as Missile, Semantica, Stroboscopic Artefacts and current home, Token.
He is now a keystone of the Token label, having been responsible for its first release in 2007 and dozens of releases, remixes and collaborations since. He has planted seeds along the label’s history with bold, distinctive and memorable tracks like ‘Arcing’, ‘Cathedral’, ‘Obsidian’, ‘Plaintive’, ‘Voyager’ and ‘Tornado’. His critically acclaimed LP ‘Vaudeville’ released in 2014 perfectly captured his uniquely evocative sound and attitude.
Fast forward to 2018 and the culmination of his next steps with a powerful follow-up LP ‘Strata’ for Token. As the title of the tenth release on the label put it, onwards and wrongwards!
