Kenny “DOPE” Gonzalez is one of the most prolific artists of the modern music age. The four time Grammy nominated musical genius has been entertaining and astounding the masses alike with his fusions of house, hip-hop, Latin, jazz, funk & soul, reggae, alternative pop and broken beats for 20 years. Known as a living encyclopedia of beats and tagged with the nickname “DEBO” by his closest friends, Kenny is a purveyor of sonic masterpieces. Kenny was born in 1970 and grew up in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. In the eighties around the age of 11 or 12 he was absorbing up the hip-hop beats that were being played at local block and house parties. In 1985 from the age of 15 to 21 he began his musical career as a buyer for a local record shop called WNR Music Centre in Sunset Park, Brooklyn. During this time Kenny broadened his musical knowledge and found his love for “diggin” for records. To date Kenny has a collection of over 50,000 records.
