There’s a slight irony in the title of this blog.
Kon has been around for as long as we can remember, collecting records from the tender age of four!
Kon has been DJing since 1985 and now, decades later, he’s regarded as an absolute authority on hip hop, funk, soul and disco.
We asked him FINA’s three Golden Questions:
WHAT WERE THE FIRST RECORDS YOU BOUGHT WHICH REALLY INFLUENCED YOU?
Prior to ever buying records, the earliest memories of a song would be Jefferson Airplanes “miracles” which was on playing on the radio while I rode shotgun in my fathers 67′ VW beetle. ELO, Moody Blues, The Stones, Led Zep, Jimi, Santana, Stevie Wonder were all staples in my household.
The first record I bought myself was a Superman disco 12″ on Meco around 77′
WHAT WERE THE LAST RECORDS YOU BOUGHT?
This past week while in Sweden I picked up Björn J:Son Lindh’s rarest LP ‘Frånstorstad Till Grodspad’ as well as a few other local Swedish LPs and a bunch of EU only pressings of 90s hip hop 45s.
WHAT DOES 2019 HAVE IN STORE FOR YOU?
I have a full length project set to drop on Defected ft Ben Westbeech, Andreya Triana, Roy Ayers, Nikki O and more.
Some more official multi track remixes on my own imprint Kontemporary set to drop this summer.
