Biography

David Kennedy’s work as Ramadanman and Pearson Sound has been a positive scourge on the airwaves this past year. His current deviation from any kind of conventional ‘dubstep’ template hasn’t come as a shock for anyone who’s been following his career from the start - he’s always had a particular slant and a percussively textured style all of his own that’s often layered with thick and potent bass frequencies and synth washes - but it seems like with recent material like ‘Work Them’ (released on Loefah’s Swamp81 imprint) Kennedy is simply toying with the world’s expectations of him.

As a key component behind some of the most daring dancefloor music released in the last year, both as a producer and as a label owner – Kennedy co-runs the Hessle Audio imprint, alongside Pangaea and Ben UFO - he’s travelled the world numerous times over releasing music by key producers like Joe, Elgato and James Blake as he’s done it. Scoring his label a well respected residency at London club, fabric and more recently, starting his own vinyl only night called Acetate in Leeds, his knack for working over a dancefloor shows no sign of waning. Finding the perfect space between bass bin and monitor he’s constantly innovating, refusing to sit still and feeding off all kinds of temperate influences – from old house to Chicago juke music - the end of 2010 and into 2011 sees him hording an array of productions that are absolutely battering soundsystems, radio shows and eardrums alike.

    ...but I can only do that because I have enough money to now. I used to pirate everything because otherwise I would not have had very much access to all the music I love.

    personally, I always download albums first, keep them a few weeks to decide if they have any longevity, and then buy the music or delete it.

    @Scarper1 have you never let a friend borrow a book? Should the artist get money every time you let someone borrow a book, or let them borrow a DVD - or even show a DVD to someone who didn't pay for the DVD? What about buying clothes second-hand, or giving a shirt to a friend? All of these options prevent the original artist from getting any money back, so why is copying an mp3 so heinous to you? We all support Ramadanman in shows. Most of the people who pirate are the people who don't have the money to buy his music anyway (I buy his music, but I support piracy).
