Inigo Kennedy is a pioneering and respected techno and electronic music producer and DJ. He is well known for always bringing technical and creative originality and skill to his work. He is the owner of the innovative and genre defying label Asymmetric. He has also been responsible for a large and diverse back catalogue of releases on a wide variety of labels and projects around the World. His discography stretches to almost 100 releases on vinyl, CD and as MP3. His DJ schedule has taken him to all corners of the World.
Towards the end of 2002 Asymmetric reached its tenth release, ”The Power Of Ten”, and entered an unfortunate, difficult and frustrating period due to distribution problems. Not wishing to stem the flow of music and ideas, the opportunity was taken to start an innovative project asymmetric|mp3. This is an MP3 label made available freely at www.asymmetric.co.uk with the aim of running alongside and supporting Asymmetric.
Releases are made available as a collection of high quality MP3 tracks all of which expand upon the horizons that have made Asymmetric so well respected worldwide. The first release, made available in January 2004, was called “In Parallel” and brought significant interest and positive feedback from around the World. This led up to the welcome return of Asymmetric to vinyl, later in the same year, working with Madrid based Jaxx Records.
The asymmetric|mp3 project has grown and diversified, reaching its seventh acclaimed release in early 2006. Clearly moving into directions that cover a far wider breadth of electronic and experiment music this natural progression has seen the birth of projects with Sheffield”s Audiobulb, London based Rednetic and Stockholm based Electronic Desert amongst others. \r\n\r\nEarly 2007 marked the first release for Token records and the beginning of a strong techno alliance. ”Identify Yourself” made a definitive statement to the techno world and both proudly launched the label and marked a long awaited return to vinyl.
The ”Bite Back” EP followed in 2008 to fantastic feedback and helped further cement Token as a highly regarded label. Hand in hand with this the diversity of the asymmetric|mp3 project continues to accelerate and tangents into remix work such as for the Czech band Khoiba have been immensely well received.
Alongside this pioneering release schedule has grown an increasingly hectic worldwide DJ schedule – including Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, China, Croatia, Czech Republic, England, Finland, France, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Germany, Hungary, Netherlands, Northern Ireland, Israel, Poland, Portugal, Scotland, Serbia, Singapore, Slovakia, Slovenia, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, USA, etc.
These perfomances almost always pushing three turntables and one or two CDs to their limits to provide a truly energetic, atmospheric, innovative and, dare I say, inspirational and challenging experience. High on the agenda at these performances is that classic tracks are as important and relevant as the most recent releases.
Well on the way to 100 releases, a number of major projects upcoming in the next few months and a packed DJing schedule. Things are looking bright on planet Asymmetric…
