House music pioneer Kenny Dope has been in the music industry for over thirty years. We spoke to him about the highlights of his career–from organizing block parties in New York City in the 80’s, to the Masters At Work heydays in the 90’s and 2000’s, to touring the world still as Kenny Dope in 2018.

Kenny emphasizes the importance of sticking to what feels best, but also of learning the business-side of things. He made some bad deals as a young artist, and had to learn the hard way. But he hopes the new generation will make use of all the great information that is available online.
