Dj kengy klan is a native of Martinique.
Bathing in the world of music since his childhood, he has a lot of experience. He grew up between Martinique and Paris with the sound of the Festivals, Gwo ka, biggine, reggae and zouk, sixties and eighties before going into the club scene in Paris. He also discovered underground and urban culture music, rhythms and funky house and soul.
The love of music has driven him to share his passion with others across the country during his periods of travelling and in the cities of Paris and Berlin where he has been living: He has built up companies and Event Marketing Agencies.</p>
<p>From Martinique to Paris</p>
<p>In Martinique, he got his first Djembe for his 10th birthday and learned the traditional music of the West Indies.
He arrived in Paris at the age of 18 where he discovered the Djing.
Fascinated by music, he bought his first turntables at the age of 20.
Very quickly, he noticed the lack of events in the department of Seine et Marne (77) and decided to organize his own evenings, especially to the sound of Zouk, Hip Hop, French Rap and Reggae. He set up animation of various events like fashion shows, galas and club parties in the region of Ile de France together with "Anime Europe" company.</p>
<p>In 1995 he met July Drum (Singer / Actress) who booked him as a DJ for a special event. At that time he decided to become a professional DJ.
In the years following this event, he mixed music for fashion events (e. g. the Duplex and the Chapelle des Lombard in Paris), and created numerous soundtracks for dancers and teachers from diverse fields of modern jazz dance urban.
His style is certainly one of the most eclectic of the moment.
Due to his adaptability, his feeling and his extensive repertoire, he is able to fire diverse kinds of audience.
His mix of new and classic R & B, Rap, Ragga, Funk and peak House is fluid, structured and always tinged with his personal touch.</p>
<p>In 1998 a friend of Kengy told him about the diverse music scene in Berlin. During a holiday in Germany he got two major jobs in Berlin and as he was seeking for international experience, Kengy decided to move to Germany one month later. Due to his great volition and his strong character he climbed the ladder. After a long period of apprenticeship he succeeded in multiplying his engagements in clubs and in organising parties all over Germany. In 2001 he gave his first concert on the occasion of a concert of the rap band « Les Ton Ton ». In the same year he became resident DJ in a Berlin bar.</p>
<p>Since his exile in Berlin he has had a crush on hypnotic « House » music and « Dark » (e. g. Danny Tennaglia, Marque Watts, Deep Dish, Peace Division) ; and he spent a lot of time in the studio behind the turntable building up this new house style accentuated with percussion live acts. From 2005 to 2007 Kengy was resident DJ of the Hotel bar of Radisson SAS where he prepared diverse events abroad in the capacity of DJ and percussionist. He regularly plays music in the most renowned clubs of several countries : Germany, Czech Republic, Austria, Sweden, Norway, Denmark.
