Some people live, eat and breathe electronic music. Kev Obrien is undoubtedly one of those people. As an avid lover of dance music for nearly fifteen years, Kev has built his life around the music he loves, and has dedicated the better portion of it to throwing quality events, DJing and most recently producing.
After relocating from Florida to New York in 2008, Kev hasn't looked back since. Nearly a decade of experience in the industry has equipped him with the tools and confidence to instantly make an impact in one of the toughest and most saturated scenes in the world...the concrete jungles of New York City.
2010 has been a pivotal year for Kev, with his productions on Deep Vein Audio and Tolerant Recordings reaching the record boxes of the world's elite; gaining massive support from tastemakers such as John Digweed, Nic Fanciulli, Laurent Garnier, Armin Van Buuren, Timo Maas, Milton Jackson and many many more. His release on Deep Vein Audio, 'Valentines and 909s', released in May 2010, has earned plays on John Digweed's Essential Mix, as well as his Transitions show (6/11 & 6/18), Nic Fanciulli's 'Worldwide Sounds', Solomun's 'Diynamic Sessions', as well as frequent plays on Ministry of Sound radio.
Kev also works part-time as a dance music journalist, contributing album and single reviews, as well as features and interviews for some of the world's most respected dance music outlets. His writings have been featured on Beatportal, 365Mag, Datatransmission, PulseRadio, DI Magazine and ProgressiveHouse.com, to name a few. His industry knowledge and experience has earned him a highly respected professional reputation within all facets of the industry, and it's this knowledge and understanding that helps increase his international popularity as an artist amongst music lovers, who have downloaded his podcasts and mixes over 250,000 times in 2009 and 2010 alone.
For Kev Obrien and Stranjjur, the future is now. And the future looks very Stranjj, indeed.
