To commemorate the 10th Anniversary of the Vocal Sessions mix series that kickstarted my DJing journey, I’ve compiled a 2 hour selection of some of my favourite vocal house tracks from the last couple of years, including tracks from Joey Negro, Opolopo, Louie Vega, Richard Earnshaw, Sean McCabe, Rhemi, Josh Milan and more.
Recorded live in July 2016, fans of the original Vocal Sessions will hopefully find that this continues the spirit of the original series… summery sing-along music, blended smoothly to get feet moving.
Head to the mixes page for the full tracklist, and more of my mixes.
I’m Jon, more usually known online as kense.
Amongst other occupations, I’ve been a DJ for over a decade, and photography and art have always been hobbies of mine. Music is my true passion, I live and breathe it, and not a moment goes by where I’m not listening to music or making my own rhythms and beats… But increasingly I’m finding that I need the visual stimulation of art as much as the aural stimulation that music brings.
I don’t like to pigeon-hole my musical taste, as I find it changes with my mood and the time of day. Likewise, with art, I am touched by and drawn to various styles and mediums. Musically and visually, I take each individual piece on their own merit.
I created this website a few years ago, originally as a blog, being an outlet for me to release the thoughts in my head that were taking up valuable space, sharing music and imagery that I liked and intending to use it myself to keep track of music and pics that I liked.
The blog became popular and I found myself updating it far more often than I’d originally intended to try to keep up with demand, which I felt compromised the quality of the content. I made the decision, therefore, to come away from the site for a while and take a break.
I now intend to use the site to feature the web and graphic design work I’m doing and archive the mixes that are still be in demand.
You’ll find that I’m still an avid hunter of fresh new music on Mixcloud and SoundCloud and use my ‘favourites‘ and ‘likes‘ lists as a means of keeping track of those tracks and mixes that I particularly enjoy.
I consider myself to be a skilled WordPress developer and Photoshop user, able to expertly manipulate and retouch photos and images, and combine those skills with my inquisitive mind and eagerness to learn to constantly develop myself and what I am capable of achieving.
