lo key’s Quick Fire Q’s – Ryan Cannon

We met Ryan online due to his affiliation w/ Afrosynth Records, in JHB South Africa.

The young selector took the time to record this deep and mellow journey for us, and we’re stoked that he agreed to get involved in our Quick Fire Q’s. He watches the scene with a close eye based on social media activity and already shows knowledge that puts him well ahead of most “heads” in our scene these days – understanding the roots of House Music, especially places like Chicago or Detroit shows, to me, that you’re getting into things for the right reasons.

Hailing from my neck of the woods I just had to get him involved somehow – I was jealous to learn that he’s supported Antal at a night in Johanessburg in 2018 though… lol

May we present to you, Ryan Cannon
