Kennedy Jones has been taking the trapstyle bass music scene by storm since the “Kennedy Jones” project was born in late 2012. With support from artists such as Diplo, Major Lazer, Borgore, 12th Planet, Jack Beats, Bro Safari, Congorock, Carnage, Mt. Eden, Nadastrom, Brillz, Luminox, Ookay and more, he has proved already that his high energy bass-packed tunes can rock dance floors across the world. Kennedy’s newest single, “Came To Party” on Mad Decent was #11 on the iTunes electronic chart on its release date and continues to climb. Kennedy’s Buygore All Stars album features a collaboration between himself and Borgore with a remix of the dance floor smasher “Macarena” as well as a remix of Elvis Crespo’s “Suavemente”. Kennedy Jones is quickly becoming recognized as the artist to watch in 2013 and keeps supporters wanting more with his versatile productions and live selection.

An Orange County native, Ali is a 21 year old looking to bring a new perspective to the turntables. As a frequent festival attendee, his musical palate ranges from indie and old school rock to hip hop and electro. Ali has a 6 year background in classical piano, and began to experiment with mixing and producing music upon entering UC San Diego. He quickly fell in love with the idea of piecing together his favorite tracks to create mixes to evoke all sorts of emotions. His musical philosophy is that every set is an opportunity to connect with the crowd and take them on a musical journey. A lot of DJs would argue that crowd interaction on the mic is part of the act, but Ali would prefer to let the music do the talking for him.



Finding the right sound and style has been an ongoing yet rewarding journey for Jun. As a veteran member of UCSD's very own DJ's & Vinylphiles Club (DVC) in his college years, his exposure to a wide variety of genres combined with his own personal tastes proved to be successful as he and Nick Reamaroon's collaboration as Break North were crowned winners of the 2012 Sun God DJ Battle. By mixing and mashing the current sounds of Trance, Electro House, and Progressive genres in his sets, Jun breathes new life into even the most familiar Big Room anthems as he steps on stage for Hullabaloo 2013.
