YouTube Sessions: Pearson Sound

Debuting as Ramdanman back in 2006 during the halcyon days of Dubstep, David Kennedy has outlasted the demise of that moniker and the genre’s credibility to become one of Britain’s most popular producers of underground bass centric dance music. The intervening seven years have seen Kennedy contribute to Fabric’s much loved mix series as Pearson Sound, lecture at Red Bull Music Academy’s Madrid edition and drop a well received 12″ of Chicago House indebted thumpers under his ‘Maurice Donovan’ alias, all whist remaining an integral cog in the Hessle Audio machine alongside university chums Ben UFO and Pangaea. As ahead of the game as he was back when he first dropped ‘Response’ back in ’06, his recent EP on Hessle is another salvo of minimalist percussion driven workouts delivered in fearlessly original fashion.

Roping in Kennedy for this week’s YouTube Sessions, he delivered some classic moments from DMZ, iPhone made garage beats, some live DJ E.Z magic and of course, as is customary, a novelty cat clip…
