Richard Ali, aka Kereni, was born in Naples, Italy and later moved to Sardinia. He discovered an interest in electronic music at a young age, after his mum gave him his first keyboard.
He started to attend parties in 1998 and was quickly captivated by electronic music, especially acid techno. He soon began experimenting with technology, trying to recreate the music that he loved.
In 2002 he moved to Bristol (UK), where he continued following his passion for music and technology. He started doing live performances at small parties and occasional club gigs and at the beginning of 2009 Kereni debuted in London and as well as at Bristol’s infamous Drama after parties.
After focusing on djing and performing for a while, Kereni only recently began working in the studio, producing his own tracks and cultivating his distinct techno sound.
In the last year he had releases on labels such as BCR, Propellant Music, Shout Records, Plastiq Records and to name a few.
His releases have been supported so far by the like of Dave Clarke, D. Carbone, Mattias Fridell, 88UW, Claudio PRC and many more
