Born out of the Liverpool Hip Hop Club Night of the same name No Fakin’ DJ’s are brothers Ciaran and Paddy Quinn individually known as Kwinzola and DJ Illson. their unique DJ sets, deep rooted in Hip Hop, seamlessly blend and layer jazz, funk, soul, disco and reggae taking the roots of the culture straight to the dancefloor.
A handful of remixes, independent releases, residencies and their acclaimed sample based opus “Give and Example” on Fat City Records paved the way for No Fakin’ DJs to take their genre defying DJ show outside their own club nights. They have gone on to rock dancefloors, boats, tents and tipis across Europe at festivals and clubs like Lovebox, Secret Garden Party, Fabric, Chibuku, the Garden Festival and Soundwave.
As self proclaimed fans first and foremost they have had the honour of playing with many of their heroes and inspirations, holding their own alongside Rakim, Public Enemy, George Clinton, DJ Shadow, Mr Scruff and DJ Premier to name just a few.
