Shep Kennedy

Shep began his DJ career in the late 80's at Bensons Wine Bar, Essex, England. His Sunday night residence soon became so popular they moved him to a Friday Night slot "it was great because everyone was into rave in the late 80's and there was me playing rare groove & jazz, and the kid's were loving it."

It was in the early 90's that Shep got in to radio via Friends FM, a pirate radio station in Leyton, East London, working alongside Soul 24-7's Alan Jay.

About Trickski
TRICKSKI:
Thursday night, half past 2 in the morning at the Weekend Club, Berlin’s current number one “Hot Spot”. A wild mixture of Chicago and Detroit tunes, almost forgotten dance anthems and upfront house stuff gets the crowd cookin’. Suddenly, Jack Migger jumps on stage and his Hip House Live Action puts the night on a whole new level. Unexpected things happen: hands in the air, groupies screaming and men shaking their rumps wildly! Sweat is running everywhere, even over the laptops of the boys of “Goldener Westen“ who are responsible for the crazy visuals.
