Kessler – Pandemonium [Yellow Island Records]

yellow island - kessler

Eddy Kennedy, aka Kessler, is a DJ and producer from Northern Ireland. Collecting records & studying production from an early age enabled him to progress a deep passion of music, which unearthed an array of unique self-released records, as well as releases on Born Sleepy, innovative label in Belfast hometown. An eclectic taste is well and truly reflected through Kessler’s creative & unique style, drawing influences from the likes of Ilian Tape, R&S, Metalheadz and Hessle Audio.

Having nurtured his sound in the UK & Ireland, Kessler relocated to Rotterdam to continue growing his forward thinking & genre defying aesthetic, which you can hear in ‘Endura’ and ‘Fly Forever’, creating a dynamic signature of immersive breaks & bass-driven music. Also praised for his selections, outlying his distinct connection with unrestricted electro, garage, jungle & techno, Kessler has gained reputation for his tough and diverse sets, earning a residency with Manchester-based Limbo Radio, slot’s at AVA Festival, Shine and Twitch to name a few, and also a standout performance at Mixmag’s Lab London in 2019, whilst also being tipped by Four Four Mag as one to watch. Supporting and sharing booths across the UK with acts like Skream, Pangaea & Marcel Dettman to Prosumer, Avalon Emerson, and Ellen Allien have provided the sonic tools in which he can attach string after string to his creative bow.

2020 looks to be a breakthrough year for the young producer, who’s sound has adopted a more take no prisoners attitude. Kessler also boasts his own club imprints Footwork & newly launched Meraki, which sees him curate line-ups within the realm of electro, breaks & driven techno across dance floors in Europe.
