Kenny Mulligan from Glasgow, Scotland is a DJ, label owner, club promotor, radio show host and charity event co-ordinator who’s developed his own unique sound from acquiring a very avant-garde taste over the years.
In 1988, aged 15, he attended his first acid house rave in London. Instantly connecting with this new movement he tuned into all the pirate radio stations and started taking notes. Technics 1210’s were bought followed by countless hours in record shops buying all the latest releases. At 16 he was given his first DJ gig at the legendary Bat Cave, Glasgow playing at an under 18’s rave.
In 1993 he immersed himself in the London free party scene, hitting various squat parties, witnessing the birth of London acid techno. He promptly started following underground sound systems such as Spiral Tribe, Jiba, Immersion and the Liberators DJs. This led to him forming the Acid Army Crew with fellow DJ ‘s and artists, making it their mission to promote underground techno by hosting mad parties, eventually becoming an integral link between the Glasgow and London techno party scenes.
Kenny also has strong connections in Europe, coordinating radio shows for Station Son Particulier, Belgium. He also hosts his own shows, Elemental for Pure Radio and Resonate on London’s Hoxton FM where he invites ground breaking electronic artists in for interviews and to play wicked new music, something Kenny is no stranger to as owner of Dirty Slates Records, releasing techno, acid, house and electro trax.
He always plays storming sets at warehouse raves, squat parties and events across the UK including Don’t, Glastonbury Festival, Aurora Festival, Pirate Club and Future Boogie.
He recently created the experimental all day event, Resonate. Here DJ’s and artists jam together and socialise within a unique gathering of acid and techno heads, misfits, hippies and punks. He also runs the Philanthropy Party benefit nights which raise cash for a London homeless project.
2014 seen him launch new Glasgow club night The Wax Factory, staying true to his core reference of love, bringing together DJ’s and artists playing all genres within the electronic kingdom.
