"Kenneth Thomas is without doubt one of the most promising young DJs in the electronic scene right now. There's an intelligence and a well defined style to his sets. He's quickly emerging as one to watch in the next generation of superstar DJs." When Paul Oakenfold has this to say about someone people can tend to stop and take a listen. Following in an elite class consisting of Dave Ralph, D:Fuse & Hernan Cattaneo, its seems every 5 years or so Oakenfold hand picks a future star to take under his wing and the latest selection is Kenneth Thomas.
Hailing out of the Detroit, the birthplace of Techno, KT stands out with his emotional and melodic sound. Yet, the same aggression that spawned the early techno sounds of the 90's is the same fuel that fires Kenneth to explore the emotional side of the musical experience. Music has always been a spiritual place for Kenneth and because the depth of dance music goes well beyond the conscious level, there's an underlying exploration and experience in every set and track.
Beyond traveling the globe sharing his music, Kenneth has also become a juggernaut in the studio. Over the past 6 years he's completed over 50 original tracks and remixes for labels including Perfecto, Hope, Armada, Om, Cuurve, Alter Ego, Pacha and more. Now, busy working on his debut artist album coming later this fall, we have seen this 'Dj at heart' break new ground in the areas of production. Also on the plate, beyond DJing and the studio, KT is A R for Oakenfolds' Perfecto Records, helping spearhead the renaissance of one of the greatest labels dance music has ever seen.
The future is bright for Kenneth. Touring the world sharing his blend of progressive minded dance music, the focus has never changed since day one as he says, "This is the most amazing sound I have ever encountered, I just want to share it with as many people as possible"
