San Francisco native Ken Loi exploded onto the scene in 2012 with his “Play Me” EP via Big Beat, proving that first and foremost he is a one of the most gifted producers among the vast scene of rising EDM stars. That initial showcase of his production chops immediately led to remixes for Adrian Lux and Gym Class Heroes and in May 2012, it set in motion a fierce label debut with “All It Takes” for Tiësto’s Musical Freedom imprint to solidify his increasingly momentous career. Blending adrenaline fueled club energy with the intense melodic stylings of Miami songstress Zashanell, “All It Takes” has earned inauguration to the high end of EDM – not surprising for an artist so widely renowned by fans and industry icons alike.
Outside of the digital market, Ken’s passionate stage presence has continued to grow his recent triumphs. Between the 27,000 strong crowd of his opening slot at Tiësto’s appearance at LA’s Home Depot Center and Ken’s own headlining gigs at XS, Pacha, Revel Atlantic City and Marquee Las Vegas, Ken’s sound mirrors the country’s widespread enthusiasm for dance music. Regularly playing alongside artists such as Dada Life, Benny Benassi, and Fedde le Grande, he continues to extend his reach to a worldwide audience increasingly hungry for Ken’s high caliber, raw talent.
Most recently, Ken has remixed tracks from artists such as Tritonal, Gabriel & Dresden. He also produced a massive remix alongside Tiësto for Calvin Harris’ chart-topping smash “Sweet Nothing”, featured on Tiësto’s Club Life Volume 3. In September, Laidback Luke’s MixMash Records released his collaboration “Knock Down” with ANSOL, which received widespread support from the DJ community. In 2013, Ken combined his love of music with an acute business acumen to found his own label, Starbright Records, releasing his progressive house anthems “The Wall” and “Don’t Stop The Love”.
With that sort of momentum, 2014 is guaranteed to be a massive year for the well-deserving Ken Loi.
