I’m basically going to do a bunch of songs, house music, pretty much inspired by Coachella’s Do LaB, “said Kennedy. “It was actually the idea of my girlfriend Raquel [Leviss] and I fell in love with it. I thought it was genius and that it would challenge me for the next year. ”
While working towards her Coachella goal, Kennedy also focuses on sobriety. He says that the past nine months have been “magnificent” and that he has found a new passion for deejaying while being sober.
Kennedy explained that one of his biggest fears was to be sober by performing in front of people. He says he used to drink a lot before the shows so he could mask all the excitement and anxiety with “alcohol and anything”. It was a huge step for Kennedy to embrace his sobriety while he worked.
Now he has found a love for deejaying without alcohol or other substances, and he is “sure” that he will continue to be sober for the rest of 2020.
