KENNY


AS one half of Art Department, with Jonny White, Kenny Glasgow has risen to prominence over the last few years. The duo are well-known for their deep, often melancholy approach to electronic music and Kenny’s haunting vocals underpin many of their tracks. As well as Art Depart- ment’s ongoing projects, including a second album for Crosstown Rebels, Kenny has also been working closely with friend and fellow vocalist Ali Love and Luca C & Brigante.


Inspirations? “My influences while growing up were a few of my older cousins, who also were into disco, rap, funk etc, plus some cool friends in both the school and church I attended. As I grew older, and more into music, my influences stemmed anywhere from any Larry Levan mix to just about anything on Motown,” Kenny remembers. “I was also influenced musically by watching, and learning from, some of the best DJs and electronic music producers in the world.”


GLASGOW


Current projects? “At the moment we (Art Department) are working on a new album for Crosstown, due some time mid-next year, and also working on a few projects for Jonny’s label No.19, due late next year.”


Why are vocals back? “Well I can only speak for myself when I say vocals boost a good track (that’s usually missing something) and turn it into a really good song. Again I can only speak for myself and the tracks I make — with a vocal, a good song becomes one that has more play and staying time in a DJ’s box.”


FAMOUS VOCAL APPEARANCES:


ART DEPARTMENT ‘Without You’, ‘All Mine’,


‘Tell Me Why’


HOT NATURED ‘Assimilation (with Ali Love)’
