Kenny Carpenter joins the Spotlight Mix


Kenny Carpenter is a Native New Yorker.

In the mid-late 70’s, and early 80’s, Kenny Carpenter was an ever-present attendee,  when the NYC underground club scene emerged from the womb of rhythmic integration. As an original Brooklyn resident, he watched, listened and learned from some of the best DJ’s… before becoming serious about playing music himself. At that point, he devised a plan for his future. Some of his biggest mentors & idols at the time included the likes of Nicky Siano, Tee Scott, Walter Gibbons, Larry Levan, Frankie Knuckles, Larry Patterson and David Mancuso. 

In 1975, Kenny Carpenter’s early club experiences lead to his employment as a light technician at the then famous “Galaxy 21” on West 23rd Street, working lights alongside the famous DJ & remixer Walter Gibbons. After the Galaxy 21 closed, he worked the lights at a club called “The Inferno” on West 19th Street in NYC.

Kenny always had the desire to play music and he started spinning records first in small venues, and then inevitably moved on to a Saturday Night Residency at the world renowned “STUDIO 54” on West 54th Street. After the closing of Studio 54, Kenny was hired as the Saturday Night Resident DJ in a venue the size of an aeroplane hanger with a capacity of more than five thousand people called Bond’s International Casino, It was the largest club in NYC located on West 45th Street in the heart of Times Square!

His resultant popularity and increasing fame led to international opportunities in countries such as Japan, Hong Kong, Israel, France, Spain and England.. spinning regular guest spots at what was and remains the most famous club in London: The Ministry Of Sound.  

Kenny has been described professionally & globally as an “A” List DJ & Producer. He utilizes all aspects of Social Networking, which have become a necessity to help complement and enhance his knowledge, talent, experience, and professionalism. He believes it’s time for him to take advantage of the Gift he’s acquired to make people.. both young and old.. move, think, and feel.. by making his work available to all who are interested in the evolution of club music!!!

Grahame Farmer

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
