David Kennedy’s work as Ramadanman and Pearson Sound has been a positive scourge on the airwaves this past year. His current deviation from any kind of conventional ‘dubstep’ template hasn’t come as a shock for anyone who’s been following his career from the start - he’s always had a particular slant and a percussively textured style all of his own that’s often layered with thick and potent bass frequencies and synth washes - but it seems like with recent material like ‘Work Them’ (released on Loefah’s Swamp81 imprint) Kennedy is simply toying with the world’s expectations of him.

As a key component behind some of the most daring dancefloor music released in the last year, both as a producer and as a label owner – Kennedy co-runs the Hessle Audio imprint, alongside Pangaea and Ben UFO - he’s travelled the world numerous times over releasing music by key producers like Joe, Elgato and James Blake as he’s done it. Scoring his label a well respected residency at London club, fabric and more recently, starting his own vinyl only night called Acetate in Leeds, his knack for working over a dancefloor shows no sign of waning. Finding the perfect space between bass bin and monitor he’s constantly innovating, refusing to sit still and feeding off all kinds of temperate influences – from old house to Chicago juke music - the end of 2010 and into 2011 sees him hording an array of productions that are absolutely battering soundsystems, radio shows and eardrums alike. « hide
