My name is Kenneth Matos better know as DJ Kenny Matos. I was born in Bayamon, Puerto Rico on September 19th, 1974. I lived there for 9 years, when my parents decided to move to Orlando, Florida. Upon moving to Orlando I went to Englewood Elementary, then went on to Liberty Middle School and then graduated from Colonial High School. At the age of 16 I had my first little girl and I named her Tiffany Marie. At the age of 28 I had my second little girl and I named her Kalany Evelisse. There were some tough times that I had to surpass, but I did it all through the grace of God and the help of my parents. As time moved on I started to try and explore myself. As time passed it's when I discovered my love for music. Upon stumbling on the scene, my urge to learn how to spin vinyl became my obsession. I would practice at my peeps house on whatever turntable they had, it didn't matter to me. I was determined to get that mix right. I was truly determined to become a DJ!!!!! I must admit people, it was hard, but I finally conquered that demon and became the DJ that I am today. One person that I Looked up to was my cousin Ivan aka DJ Fuego.
I started listening to Florida breaks with such DJs as Icey, Baby Anne, DJ Kioke, Mike & Charlie, Davie D and many more. Going to clubs like Abby's, Firestone, The Edge, Beachum Theater, Cloud 9, Cyberzone, The Abyss and many more. I have been in the music scene since 1991, but I first touched the decks in 1999. Once I learned the tricks of the trade I purchased a pair of Gemini turntables, that's all I could afford at the time. At that time I drove myself to buy my first vinyls, so I could create my own masterpieces. Once I did that, I knew it was on.
Since then I've been playing at my peeps (family) houses, friends houses, after parties and where ever there were decks.
When 2005 came along all changed for me when it came to music. I finally discovered House Music!!! I fell in LOVE with it!!! Now I look up to DJ's like Erick Morillo, Roger Sanchez, DJ Kaskade, Swedish Mafia, Oscar G and many more.
On Memorial Day weekend 2007, I scored my first real gig in one of Orlando's prime Underground Lounges, called Suite B. When the night was over, the owner Sammy asked me to come back again to spin. As time passed by I became a resident DJ at Suite B. I then started rubbing elbows with DJ Carlos Mendoza at Vixen. I also had the chance to play with my cousin DJ Fuego from Miami, DJ Sander Mendez, Anthony Hernandez, Junior C and plenty more.
Thanks to God as of 2010 I have created 16 CD's, I made it to resident DJ at Suite B, and now another club Cameo after hour. The way I see it is, as long as I keep making the crowd move, I will ALWAYS BE HAPPY!!! I LOVE MUSIC, it's my addiction. Throughout my whole adventure to get to where I am at , I had MAD support from all my FAMILY and FRIENDS, YOU guys know who you are!!! I LOVE ALL OF YOU!!! Finally, I want to add this; thanks to EVERYONE THAT BELIEVED IN ME & TO EVERYONE THAT WAS THERE FOR ME THROUGH THE GOOD AND THROUGH THE BAD!!!
Much Love, One Love,
DJ Kenny Matos
