Chilled Transmission : Billy Kenny
Sunday. That most hallowed of days. Be you just finishing your night out at an after, after party or just unwinding with a nice glass of vino, we embraced the end of the weekend for what it is, a chilled out affair. Thus, we thought it was about time we started soundtracking this most underrated of times to ask our favourites DJs to dig through their record boxes and serve up something a little different for our brand new Chilled Transmission series.
Starting as we mean to go on we asked fasting rising producer, DJ and engineer Billy Kenny to step up to inaugurate the series. Having conquered the festival world with bass fuelled uber hit ‘Work’, the Brit has continued to impress with releases for Dirtybird, Sweat It Out and his own This Ain’t Bristol imprint.
“I’ve wanted the opportunity to show people what I’m listening to in my downtime for a while now. Although my productions don’t speak the word “chill” too often, it’s rare I won’t listen to a few from this playlist whilst winding down.” Billy revealed when discussing the motivations behind his selections.
“Some are long time favourites of mine, others I’ve discovered more recently and fallen in love with. In particular, the first and last tracks were part of my childhood and I’ve come to appreciate them so much more as i’ve gotten older. My girlfriend introduced me to Elderbrook not so long ago and I instantly became attached to his stuff, he’s a genius at both producing and singing. I was on a rooftop in Johannesburg earlier this year watching the sun go down, and although it wasn’t the first time I’d heard the Lovebirds’ ‘Want You In My Soul’, I always think of that moment.
Big up everyone in this list, you often make my day better and I hope it does the same for anyone listening.”
