I'm 1v1ing a mate tonight, solo mid and he's playing Kennen. It's regular 1v1 rules, mid only, no backing except we're going first to 3 kills so if you die, you can buy items.

I've heard Irelia is a good counter and Riven/Yorick sounds alright as well.

I'm thinking about shutting him down early so he can't get a hextech or his ulti for that matter

Most mid champions beat kennen. I would suggest playing one that you are most comfortable with. If kennen maxes Q first, just make sure to always stay behind minions. Even if you are chasing to harass, make sure not to push beyond your creeps. I actually would suggest a champion with a stun or snare so you can stop Kennen if he tries to lightning rush into you.

Also, since you can't back, a champion like Vladimir with natural sustain would be nice.

mainly high burst (like annie, lb) will take care of him pretty well.

I would say anyone with a non-skillshot hard CC and/or huge burst. Ryze, annie, cassio, sion, veigar...

you can get away with a lot of other mids like malz, lb, swain, but I like these when VSing kennen.

Kennen can't do much against Malz. Malz probably isn't going to kill him much unless the Kennen is dumb and over-aggressive, but Malz would be able to really zone him badly. He can stand behind his minions and avoid Kennen's harrass, while pushing the lane hard with E. If Kennen lightening rushes, he's given Malz a good opportunity to R him.
