Born & Raised in Caracas, Venezuela, Kevin Palencia aka "AbueKev" was always surrounded by music, from the radio blasting Salsa & Merengue at home, to the Electronic Dance Music pulsing through the party's walls (the likes of Eric Prydz, Sasha & John Digweed, Deep Dish, Cajmere, Seth Troxler, Paul Oakenfold, DJ Sammy, Tiesto, Cosmic Gate, Martin Solveig, etc), it was everywhere. Later on the family moved to Miami, FL in the United States. There, he experienced a completely different culture, as well as a distinct musical scene. The transition was not easy, however, all of the different cultures and experiences that Kevin was exposed to, helped him create a balance, and well rounded taste in music ... From Classic Rock (Led Zeppelin, The Beatles, The Doors, etc), to the deepest of Electronic Dance Music (House, minimal, Techno, Trance, Tech-House, Progressive, Deep House, Nu- Disco etc), Raggaeton, and even Hip Hop.He (KPal) uses this multicultural basis to his advantage as he performs under his Producer/DJ alias, "AbueKev" which derives from the Spanish word, "Abuelo (grandpa)" & his first name, "Kevin" merged together. AbueKev blends all these contrasting cultures & experiences into his sound, but, he specializes in Techno, minimal, House, Deep House, & Tech-House.
