David Keno

Switzerland- born and now Berlin-based DJ, producer and Keno Records founder David
Keno since he stepped on the scene with his debut EP „Take The World“ back in
2004.
Influenced by bands and musicians like Pink Floyd, Mike Oldfield and Depeche Mode and
being classically trained on guitar and drums the young David Keno started his musical
journey playing in various Rock-focused band outfits throughout his youth whilst a growing
love and fascination for electronic music soon led into early drum machine and synth
experiments, followed by first remixes and more electronic edits for the bands he played
in.Having mastered his electronic studio setup and fully turned his head onto electronic
music he quickly started to carve out a musical niche of his own, incorporating elements
from both the House and Techno ends of the spectrum, unfolding complex and vibrant,
sometimes even playful melodic layers on top of a straight and dancefloor-functional
foundation, catering maximum impact and high energy levels whilst sending punters into
ecstatic heavens with his recent productions.After taking the scene by storm with the
„Bubble Bath EP“, a record released under his Vernis alias via Pocketgame and critically
acclaimed not only for the massive remix created by Trentemøller which became a club
favourite of 2005, things started to skyrocket for David Keno who – now mainly focusing on
productions under his own name – quickly became a sought-after producer and remixer
after his first club hit.Backed by a string of releases on labels like David Corrado's i220 as
well as remixes crafted for the likes of Samuel L Session, G-Man, Alex Bau and even a
rework commissioned for the Trans-X's classic „Living On Video“ alongside a buzzing DJand
live schedule which has taken him to places all over the globe ever since, the launch
of his own label Keno Records in 2007 was much more than a mandatory and logical step
for David Keno.
The following years saw the label evolving into a main hub for David Keno's solo
productions as well as successful collaborations with artists like Jaxson or Nico Stojan but
Keno Records also became an important platform for a widespread network of producers
including Beatamines, Patryk Molinari, Marlon Hoffstadt and others, both reflecting David
Keno's personal taste and experiences from his sets in Europe, Russia, China, Australia
as well as in the US- and South America where he regularly wows audiences with
pumping, energetic mainfloor workouts.
Besides taking on his role as A&R and CEO of Keno Records as well as collecting air
miles as a member of the global DJ family, Mr. Keno still keeps on working on a busy
studio schedule, teaming up with likeminded fellow artists like M.in or Evan Baggs for
mind-blowing collaborations released on labels like Yellow Tail, Cr2 Sonido, Robsoul or
Frankie, whilst crafting a continuous string of highly successful solo releases and remixes
for well- reputable, internationally acclaimed imprints like Stil Vor Talent, Get Physical,
Poker Flat Recordings, Traum Schallplatten, Snatch, Suara, Noir, Katermukke and many
more these days.David Keno is catering club bombs like the massive Suara-released
„Walking Boots“ created as a conjunctional studio effort by ME&her & David Keno as well
as high quality
tools for bubbling dancefloors and amazing nights out, unique, yet familiar and best
described as a genre of its own – we call it Keno style!
