Jenko – by your side

JENKO (real name Richard Jenko) is a 26 year old EDM, dance-pop artist from the midlands, UK with a rich musical background supported by the likes of Calvin Harris and Dallas Austin  in the past.

After having some success in his younger years as ‘Richard Jay’ he received airplay on national and international radio and began working with some of the industry’s top songwriters. He was also included in the Converse shoes ‘rising sparks’ campaign as one of the top up and coming talents.

Calvin Harris, Dallas Austin and other top producers agree. Richard Jay is  one of the most notable new pop talents to look out for. The young  British pop prodigy has been stirring up interest on both sides of the  Atlantic with his blend of pop, electro and heartfelt balladry.

RICHARD JAY,  one serious pop prodigy at seventeen(!), who’s quite a busy bee in the  studio as he writes, records, produces, and masters his own material.  He’s been floating around the interwebs for some time, garnering the  interest of BBC and thus being featured on a variety  of radio shows. The young aspirant is also taking part in the latest  Converse campaign promoting new talents on the block, to which they  described Richard Jay as a “creative centipede”.

Richard Jay’s music is just the right mix of bright, shimmering synthesizers and deep bass sound that both sounds gorgeous

Richard  is now branching out by himself once again, this time as JENKO and beginning to make his mark by releasing his latest solo track ‘By Your Side’ on the 25th June on all major platforms (i.e. Spotify, Amazon Music and Apple Music).

On January 25, 2019, they released the fourth single by Jaime “With You (feat. Kemelion)”, which will also be available together with” Over Us “on the debut EP of Kemelion. He combines oriental beats with groovy bass lines that are beating through the melodic walls of the synthesizers. On top you hear guitar licks with different funk & pop influences. His striking voice complements the 26-year-old with huge choirs and harmonies. He describes his own musical genre as “Modern Electro Pop”. Kemelion does nothing be behind his music. He becomes one with it. In March 2018, Kemelion had applied for the nationwide band promotion Play Live. Against 60 artists, he made it through live performances to the last top 4. In December 2018, the final took place at the Scala in Ludwigsburg where he convinced the jury again and earned a slot at the 2019 Stuttgart Electronic Music Festival.
