Kon and Amir are two of the world’s most respected crate diggers. Their “On Track” tapes are the definitive compilations of their kind. Collecting wax since the tender age of 5, Kon is an established DJ, producer and engineer, while Amir, a vinyl addict and DJ since 1986, works as sales manager at ABB Records.

The duo met in 1996, shopping for breaks at Boston’s Biscuithead Records. Months later they recorded their first “On Track” mixtape on a Fisher Price tape deck, and the lessons began. Their record knowledge, as well as their digging services have been sought after by the most respected names in the game, including Shady Records, Diamond, Pete Rock and Lord Finesse. According to Finesse, “Kon and Amir are two of the most extraordinary, but underrated beat diggers in the game”. To that end, in 2004, Kon and Amir opened On Track Productions Inc. which offers their digging services to beatmakers and producers in need of the rarest pieces of wax.

The Beantown duo has made a name for themselves by consistently reintroducing the masses to the music of the past. And by spanning decades of yesteryear’s gems, Kon and Amir give their listeners a real perspective on the history of the art. Look out for their “On Track” tapes, and their new album “The Kings Of Diggin” with DJ Muro on BBE/Rapster.
