DJ Kevvy Kev

Kevvy Kev is a New York native: he was born in Brooklyn, raised in Queens, and went to high school in the Bronx. In 1982 Kev came out to California to attend Stanford University, bringing out a suitcase full of Hip-Hop with him. At the time, Stanford was hardly a haven for B-Boys, but Kev seeded the ground thoroughly. This created an environment that became ground zero for all forms of Hip-Hop, from parties to shows to the now-famous radio show, The Drum, at the campus radio station KZSU. Now in its 19th year, The Drum is the world’s longest-running Hip-Hop radio show, with an impressive list of alums, from Kutmasta Kurt to Sway & Tech to Joe Quixx to Motion Man and beyond. After graduating from Stanford, Kev continued to spread the gospel of Hip-Hop, expanding into the commercial radio arena as one of the founding members of the Sway & Tech Wake-Up show. This led to a five-year stint at KMEL, where in addition to the Wake-Up Show, he worked as a weekend mix-show DJ and host of the 10 O’ Clock Bomb. This was followed by three years at Wild 94.9, where he did the groundbreaking Hip-Hop show The Danger Zone, with a roster of guest artists and DJs culled from the best and brightest on the planet. Through all this time, Kev continued to do The Drum at KZSU, creating a unique and incredible program that is now the crown jewel of radio, and has made an appearance there an industry-wide rite of passage for up and coming artists. In addition, Kev has performed, hosted, and/or DJ’d at literally every club and venue in the San Francisco Bay Area, from the biggest and most elegant to the smallest and grimiest. Internationally, he has been a guest DJ at Atomik in Ottowa, Canada; B72, WUK, and Club Tolun in Austria, Bataclan and La Palace in Paris, and many more. Kev has also been a guest DJ on Austria´s most popular radio show "Tribe Vibes" on the national station FM4, as well as guest host on WRMS in Tours, France. A 10+ year veteran of Usenet and the Web, Kev is currently in development on the most incredible website in the world, KevvyKev.com; which will pull together all of the past, present and future elements of this prolific career into a gestalt that will amaze.

PRODUC - Automatic

PRODUC - AutomaticYou hear the first track “Automatic” and the first line of the first verse is “Just waking up I gotta thank god” and yes it’s that famous line from Ice Cube song. However, PRODUC has his own identity and style.  The five track EP is filled with versatility and smooth lyrical content.  “All the Time” number two on the “Automatic” EP will have you ready to turn up.
