As a DJ, Kahn keeps true to the traditions of sound system culture with sets full of dub plates and versions. Whether performing solo as Kahn, alongside fellow grime producer and DJ Neek or as Gorgon Sound (Dub and Dancehall Project also with Neek), its always a dub plates and vinyl operation.

As well as releases and affiliations with a number of respected record labels, Kahn also runs his own imprint with Neek, Bandulu Records.
