If there's one thing you can say about Khenty Amenty it's you'll never know what to expect from once he jumps behind those decks.
One to never be put in any one set category or genre. He delivers what can only be described as a feel good style of music which will have you bouncing off the walls and giggling & smiling to the samples & effects that he throws together to make it one wacky ride you are about to embark on.
No stranger to the London House & Techno scene Khenty is a well known face always supporting fellow artists, promotors & friends. His positive attitude to life is a distinct factor in what makes Khenty such an interesting character and sets him apart from the rest.
Khenty started out as an old skool & jungle dj back in the the mid ninties as a hobbie collecting vinyl, heading down to record shops such as unity records & blackmarket, spending every single penny of his pocket money just so he could go home, pull that nice crisp vinyl out the sleeve & stick it on that belt drive soundlab deck & annoy the hell out of his parents.
Back then Khenty was known as Dj Screwloose & had played for Keltica & other well known underground warehouse parties, also guest hosting slots on pirate radio such as Flex fm.
Dj'in never really kicked off for Dj Screwloose as competition was hard & he didn't have that drive or the edge.
So music took a back seat for quite a few years till he discovered an underground House & Techno scene in the heart of Shoreditch that can only be described as a home away from home. Friendly characters & pumping music. He was sucked in to this new life of happy, feel good vibes.
2006 was the hight of Electro & Minimal where Khenty still going under the name Screwloose was slowly again building his record collection & dj'in back at afterparties on what can only be described as some EPIC weekends.
We fast forward to summer 2011 where a trip to Ibiza (not his first by any means) was the start of Khenty's true journey in to his artistic musical journey.
On that trip to Ibiza he went with a kool group of friends, one being now management of Feeling Mandy & fellow dj...Jodie Dillon.
Having heard one of his mixes she suggested he come play on their internet radio station feelingmandy.fm. Khenty saw such a passion in what Feeling Mandy was about. He had to to take that step & be apart of what he saw as something very special indeed.
November 2011 was his time to shine......
A new Dj name, a new style, a new quest.
After careful deliberation he chose his new dj name....Khenty Amenty is a divine name or title from Ancient Egyptian mythology. It means 'Foremost of the Westerners'.
Having already owning cd'js he embarked on fine tunining his mixing skills spending countless hours trying to find music that would set him apart from the rest.
With inspiration from Germany with artists such as Sascha Braemer, Nicone, Phillip Bader, Daniel Steinberg, Super Flu, Heinrichs & Hirtenfellner. The list could go on, to sounds from artists such as Mastiksoul, Green Velvet, Claude Von Stroke & Stefano Noferini.
Khenty knew no boundries.
Being the wacky fun loving character Khenty is he would feel no way in playing Justin Beiber-baby baby as an intro to make people think WTF!!! is this guy doing?!!!. Then cut that track & drop the sickest bubblin bouncy track that will make your toes curl.
"only dead fish swim with the stream" is shown on how far he will push the boundries when it comes to music and to not follow trend.
With a steady flow of bookings & fan base growing everyday Khenty is looking to embark on the next step of his musical journey....
Having already a taken courses in music technology and having a good all round grasp on music production programs. Khenty is now is the motion of putting his ideas & inspirations in to practice & making music in the studio.
He feels he has something special to contribute to this wonderful thing that brings people from all walks of life together, happy, dancing, smiling people. It's what music is about & it's what he lives for!
