Kinzy (born Joshua Kinsella in Newport, Wales 06/11/1992) is a British music producer and DJ hailing from the south of Wales. Kinzy began produce music (Using Propellerheads Reason) & DJ at a young age, whilst he was still studying in comprehensive school. One of his biggest achievements to date was winning the 'Double 99 - Rip Groove' remix competition back in 2009, at the age of 15. The remix was released on vinyl with an additional remix from 'The Count' and also the original version on the flip side. This was a big stepping stone in the young producer’s career, having it played on national radio (BBC Radio 1/1Xtra) and support from some of the worlds most respected DJ's.
As the final school year came to an end, Kinzy had already been accepted into Access to Music College, Bristol where he began to study on the Digital Musician course, studying music production and sound engineering. He was nominated in 2010 at the ATM awards in Birmingham, and went on to win the ‘Best Producer’ award.
In 2012 Kinzy received sponsorship from software company Propellerheads, and clothing company Executive League.
Thanks to Dubstep pioneer Hatcha, Kinzy has had the opportunity to play twice on Kiss FM alongside Hatcha himself, and MC Crazy D.
Kinzy has released records on a variety of record labels, such as Skint, Technique, True Tiger & Wheel & Deal. He had the honour of working with James Hazel, also known as Funtcase/Haze and has collaborated with a multiple of different producers. In 2013 Kinzy saw the release of his Obscure EP on Wheel & Deal recordings (Owned by DJ NType) and also had his track Dirty Ladies put out on the labels second compilation album.
With support from artists such as Hatcha, Skream, Funtcase, and Loefah, the young producer’s future looks bright. With many releases due in the future, we look forward to following Kinzy’s career.
