Carl Kennedy returns to his New York City roots to spread his stylish sound at LAVO on March 7th and resumes his yearlong residency at The Light in Las Vegas, where he shared the stage with the likes of Sebastian Ingrosso, Axwell, Zedd, Alesso, and Nicky Romero.

This year, Kennedy is back and brings it... what Erick Morillo describes as, "...his way, sexy, dirty, and rocky with energy” with the release of three massive original productions including collaborations with Josh Philips featuring Harper on 'Don't Hold back', and his younger brother Proj3ct on 'Keep on Rockin', along with Cara Salimando on the ultimate festival anthem, ‘All Systems Go’.

Kennedy also has a few future collaborations in the works with Def Jam Recordings R&B artist Jeremih, sensual vocalist Ashanti and Grammy Award Winning Miri Ben Ari.

This is only a glimpse into the welcomed return of Carl Kennedy with many more releases planned on his very own Wasted Youth Records.


"Hailing from Birmingham, England, Carl Kennedy made a name for himself in New York City after starting a successful club night at Centro-Fly (voted America's Number 1 Club in 2001/2002), called GBH, aka Great British House. Entertaining over a quarter of a million people during its run, GBH helped cement Carl’s reputation in the New York House scene where he performed alongside heavyweights like The Chemical Brothers, Carl Cox, Fatboy Slim, Mark Ronson, Sasha, John Digweed, Roger Sanchez and his mentor, Erick Morillo.

Not only did GBH help revitalize the US dance scene to become the house music mecca NYC is today, but it also helped launch Carl’s international touring career and gained worldwide recognition for the GBH brand. Additionally, in 2003, Carl brought Pete Tong and the UK’s BBC Radio 1 to New York to host his “Essential Selection” show live, for the first time in the show’s history. This gave dance fans on both sides of the Atlantic a chance to hear Carl's signature blend of sexy beats and soul-satisfying sonics.

Since then Carl continues to push the boundaries of house music with the launch of his very own record label known as a platform that's "run by the artists, for the artists,” along with a monthly radio show, both titled “Wasted Youth." In addition to releasing a slew of original tracks and collaborations on Wasted Youth Records, he has also worked with some of the world’s largest independent dance labels such as Erick Morillo's Subliminal Records, Mark Knight's Toolroom Records, Roger Sanchez' Stealth Records, Ministry Of Sound's M.O.S Records, and the respected underground imprint, CR2."

Life is full of wonderment and surprises, all of which can be observed as a living form of art, a giant colorful canvas full of complex identities and cultures. For me, the combination of Journalism and Anthropology, best describe my personality.
