Kenny's Bio
Three-time Grammy nominated Kenny Dope, one of the most prolific artists of the modern music age, has been entertaining and astounding the masses alike with his fusion of house, hip-hop, Latin, jazz, soul, and broken beats. Known as a living encyclopedia of beats, Kenny Dope is a purveyor of sonic masterpieces.

In 1990 after an introduction by Todd Terry, Kenny and Little Louie Vega immediately hit it off and began a creative partnership appropriately dubbed "Masters At Work". As the MAW sound became more pervasive in clubs, they became more sought after by artists and labels, eventually remixing and producing artists such as R. Kelly, Janet Jackson, Daft Punk, Barbara Tucker, India, Luther Vandross, BeBe Winans, George Benson and many, many more.

Kenny Dope's breakthrough as a solo artist came with the recording of the breathtaking Bucketheads album in 1995. A track called The Bomb! (These Sounds Fall Into My Mind) was the standout track, fulfilling Kenny's ambition to make something raw, something that was fun. Following the success of the Bucketheads album, Kenny took a break from his solo career, focusing on his collaborative work with Vega. The Nuyorican Soul album marked a particularly important moment, and had Kenny Dope's unerringly creative imprint written all over it.

For the last decade Kenny Dope has had his hands full releasing literally thousands of tracks, remixing hundreds of singles, and globe-trotting to DJ all over the world. In his production work, Kenny consistently shows his distinctive ability for programming superior beats while blending a myriad of music styles to deliver the ultimate mix. With his long-established reputation as a DJ extraordinaire, Kenny showcases a melting pot of house, jazz, funk, soul, and hip-hop while keeping the show colorful, energetic and soulful. While production and touring account for most of his time, Kenny has also established Kay-Dee Records with Scottish funk DJ legend Keb Darge.

Whether its sitting behind the control board, playing to his followers, or searching for the next great re-release classic, the beat master will continue to shine as the MASTER AT WORK! Join us at ULTRA as we celebrate Family Day Sunday with the legendary KENNY 'DOPE' GONZALEZ!
