Over the last 25 years, Ian has amassed a fine record collection and an untouchable DJ reputation. He is the co-owner of the FONOTECA brand, event management and music programming company which he runs with his fiancee Nell Shakespeare, and in his own right he is a DJ who has earned his place in the exclusive club of Ibiza resident DJs.
His experience and expertise guarantee a seamless and harmonious musical journey for any event, be it weddings, corporate or private.
Over the years, Ian has transformed bars and clubs in both the UK and Ibiza. His dedication to quality music, freedom of expression, and his deep-seated allergy to anything ‘commercial’ or ‘tacky’, has him considered as something of a maverick.
Ian’s DJ journey is ongoing and shows no signs of slowing down. He is a great relationship builder, and project leader. As the driving force behind various promotions, brands, charitable initiatives and start-up ideas, what shines through is his love for quality music.
After a chance meeting with Nikhil Shah and the team behind Mixcloud.com, at the annual International Music Summit in Ibiza, he decided to make his DJ mixes free to listen to through their fledgling online platform. Now possibly the best place to browse DJ mixes, podcasts and radio shows, across the globe, Mixcloud is where you can find all of Ian and FONOTECA’s live recordings and studio mixes. The two profiles are DJIanKennedy and FonotecaSound
