Liam Kendall

For much of time his blood has beat with the rhythm and sweat of minority subgenres and alternative subcultures. His ears were never quite satisfied with the status quo and his mind was always searching the fringe for further audio fulfilment. He was a collector of melodies, a hunter of bass lines, and a gatherer of many tempos. Respected amongst his peers as a music purest, the next logical progression in Liam Kendall’s journey was obviously to step behind the decks and put those records to good use. With an ideology still firmly rooted in the hardcore punk of his teen years, and a matched enthusiasm for dance-floor funk groovers and couch-techno deep brooders, he was well positioned to take on the diverse Melbourne underground circuit. Now several years on, he has honed his focus, and while still respecting the game, has garnered his own respect around the village for his eclectic sets. A close friend of the Boogie Beats Collective, and a regular face at techno houses such Killing Time, Pawn & Co, and Circus Bar & Nightclub, Liam has established himself as a tune selector worthy of listening to. While he maintains a quiet and humble demeanour, his achievements in the scene have been no small feat, supporting quality local and international acts from Luke Vechio to Super Flu, to co-hosting his own weekly radio show on Kiss FM, that focuses on showcasing local talent. Liam is a genuine player, a country boy-turned dive-bar-tune-lurker, he sustains a vested interest in supporting the scene and in playing quality house and techno music
