Kon has been digging crates since 1976. His library of records and tapes is broadly recognised as one of the deepest and most comprehensive collections in the world. It’s no surprise that his series of “On Track” and “Off Track” compilations released with Amir on BBE had a scene-changing and scene-defining effect on DJ culture on both sides of the Atlantic. To list Kon’s accomplishments and his influences on the international scene for the past two decades is really an impossible task. You would be hard pressed to find a DJ anywhere playing Disco, Funk, Soul or Boogie who doesn’t have at least a few Kon records in the bag… he counts Moodymann, Theo Parrish, DJ Harvey and Andres amongst his longterm supporters.

Kon is the best Disco/Funk/Soul/Boogie DJ in the world, yeah I said it. Yes of course, I know. You’re probably saying ‘but but but, what about DJ BLAH BLAH!’ Well, Kon will mix circles around whoever you’re thinking about…

His remixes of dance classics prompted Gilles Peterson to name him “Edit/rework King of 2011”, and feature him prominently on his BBC Radio shows. Among them, his NiteTime collaboration which laid down sun-streaked street party beats laced with the tough kicks of early-’90s boom bap and the sultry, heavily swung rhythms of classic disco resulting in the “Jive Talk” EP”. The highly anticipated release of his edit of Cerrone’s “Hooked On You” sold out within hours. This year Kon has more of his “Kon & the Gang” compilations in the pipeline with music from himself and friends to be released on BBE.

Kon’s edits have received massive support from taste makers such as Jazzanova, Derrick Carter, Jacques Renault, Danny Krivit, Soul Clap, Dimitri From Paris, John Morales, and Gilles Peterson to name just a few.
