We have these brief lives, and our only real choice is how we will fill them. Your attention is precious. Don’t squander it. Don’t throw it away. Don’t let companies and products steal it from you. Don’t let advertisers trick you into lusting after things you don’t need. Don’t let the media convince you to covet the lives of celebrities. Own your attention — it’s all you really have.
Jon Kennedy has been in our speakers since high school. After first hearing his track Smith vs Smith, probably downloaded off Napster, we were hooked. Since his first releases on Tru Thoughts, he’s gone on to craft more albums, EPs, and grown his own label, Jon Kennedy Federation, to give exposure and support to the emerging artists he loves. After all these years, Jon Kennedy is still going strong, producing and DJing so check out his site and Soundcloud for up-to-date releases and mixes.
So without further adieu, here are Jon Kennedy’s top tracks of the moment:
OK fine, it’s an Ariana Grande song but this is Cashy Cat production all the way. Annie’ll probably kill me for this but get your first real listen to this pop masterpiece. Gotta love those cute sounds by Cashy. And now that Benny Blanco’s been getting the Cat more pop work you can bet that we’ll be hearing more of his great production on tracks. Let’s just hope he doesn’t forget about a full-length follow up to Mirror Maru and Wedding Bells. While you listen try to figure out how she’s actually sitting on that stool. It’s like an M.C. Escher pitcture.
