25 Years of London House – Kenny Hawkes RIP
One of the legends of the House music scene died a year ago today, Kenny Hawkes. As well as running the peerless Space event in London alongside Classic recordings main man Luke Solomon, he was a supremem remixer du jour, including an amazing edit of Inner City’s ‘Big Fun’ that has always been a staple of any dance music sets I’ve played in the last eight years (it blew Creamfields away in 2010).
To help fund a memorial a t-shirt, featuring the above map of London’s House music history, is being planned. Here is the official word on the t-shirt…
Plans are afoot for a permanent memorial to the big man. To help fund that, the good folk at Faith and the Original Store will be producing a t-shirt in Kenny’s memory. It’s based on the London House map I did a few years back but which we have brought up to date and hopefully sorted out the omissions of the previous version. Details will follow in the next few weeks.
RIP Kenny x
