There are few DJs who have as much passion and dedication to this industry as Kevin Knapp. He is a constant pioneer of the sounds that crowds yearn for through both his own individual production style, and his proclivity for vocal contributions. His stand out vocals turned our heads back in 2012 proclaiming “My Beat Will Control You” with Audiojack and his first Hot Creations cut “TheDrums” alongside A&R head Richy Ahmed in 2013 is still owning dance floors to this day. As of recent, his track “Call Me” with Hannah Wants was heavily supported by Carl Cox and Jamie Jones. 2019 was a big year as Kevin’s collaborations with Prok & Fitch and Nathan Barato on “The Homie” and “Funk Police” were released with Repopulate Mars and swept across dancefloors. The year also saw Kevin releasing a tech house number one Hype Chart topping EP called Heads up on Hannah Wants’ Etiquette imprint. Kevin has taken every opportunity to continue his craft leading him from San Francisco to the capital of Techno: Berlin.
This is not seen as a day job to Kevin, but rather, it’s a way of life. It’s an attempt to communicate with audiences worldwide through his sounds and passion for human connection and it’s working. Whether that be as small as a vocal loop, or as substantial as a full-fledged EP on some of the biggest house music labels in world, Knapp will turn his hand to anything in order to continue the journey he’s living day in day out, going BIG in more ways than one.
Having played at Miami Music Week as well as Sonar, Paradise, Get Lost, DC-10, Fabric, Kater Blau, Elrow, and Sankeys in cities and countries like Beirut, Ibiza, London, Mumbai, Seoul, Sydney, Melbourne and Malta across the globe, it’s clear that Kevin’s sound is an infectious front runner in the house music industry. Just ask his frequent supporters Jamie Jones, Seth Troxler, Solardo, Claude Vonstroke, Danny Howard, Patrick Topping, and Hannah Wants about Kevin’s seat at the house music table. Whether it’s a niche underground 200 capacity club, or a stage in Miami in front of several thousand, Knapp pushes to break the boundaries between DJ and spectator.
With releases on Hot Creations, Dirtybird, Hottrax, Sola, Crosstown Rebels Truesoul and more, Knapp continues to delve beyond the music and he is positioned to have 2020 be his most poignant year to date.
