Concert preview: Kennedy Jones and Victor Niglio

Andy Downing, Columbus Alive
Kennedy Jones

Even a glance at Los Angeles-based DJ Kennedy Jones' discography supports his party-starting bonafides.

His list of recent singles includes tracks like "Let's Get Down," "Sinful" and "Came to Party," a deep, bass-infected cut that'll almost certainly turn up in the musician's New Year's Eve set.

Jones is joined here by Victor Niglio, a Philadelphia-born DJ who embraces more animalistic influences on his latest EP, Witchdoctor, taking inspiration from wild critters ("Piranha," "Macaw," etc.) on a series of jungle-steeped tracks.
