To many fans and artists across the globe Kenny Larkin is unquestionably one of the greatest techno producers of all time. His long reign was firmly established after the release of his 1994 debut album ‘Azimuth’ which was named by Street Sound Magazine as one of the best techno CDs ever produced. Admittedly, Larkin knows that to younger generations he may not be as well recognised, but that doesn’t phase him. “I’m more like the artist’s artist. I’ve had very successful electronic artists tell me constantly how much I’ve influenced them, but, to the newer generations of club-goers, my name might not be as well known. I like to say, I’m famous for not being famous!”.

Continuing to press and stand the test of time, Larkin’s endless passion for music is still as innovative as ever. In recent years we’ve seem him re-establish his position with a packed touring schedule and work on tracks such as his enormous remix of Kevin Saunderson (ft. Inner City)’s ‘Future’, which quickly rose to the number one position on Beatport’s top 100 techno chart and still dominates dancefloors today.

Kenny Larkin is distinctly one of the world’s most premiere leaders of Detroit techno in the electronic music industry today.

As a producer, DJ and remixer, Kenny has mesmerised crowds and fans across the globe for the last twenty years with his music. Since 1990, Larkin has cemented his name in the pages of dance music history along with fellow Detroit techno music mates, Derrick MayCarl Craig and Kevin Saunderson.

Kenny’s list of achievements and discography are groundbreaking to say the least. Highlights include his first full album, Azimuth (released 1994), which was deemed byStreet Sound Magazine to be one of the top 20 techno CD’s of all time.

His second album, Keys, Strings and Tambourines, released under the mighty wings of Carl Craig’s label Planet E was considered by many including ResidentAdvisor to be one of the most important albums released that year (2008), featuring it in their top 20 essential albums list.

Larkin’s thunderous return to techno has not stopped since, with Kenny touring the globe more than ever as part of the 25 years of Detroit techno celebrations and releasing new records on Planet E, being remixed by Claude Von Stroke and BenKlock and collaborating with Shlomi Aber on his Be As One Imprint.
