It’s not uncommon to leave one of Kenneth Thomas’s shows feeling like you just had one of the most incredible experiences of your life. Hailing out of Detroit, this DJ/Producer understands how to read a crowd, lock them in and deliver them a musical set that stays in their hearts forever.
"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," Paul Oakenfold.
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 of emotion in every set and track. As a performer and producer, he has the ability to blend and explore all dance music genres. Mixed between the big room melodies, you find tweaky electro edges and tech fueled moments - some call it Trance, others may call it Progressive House. We call it an incredible journey that has every crowd on their feet with smiles on their faces and hands in the air.
Beyond headlining most major clubs in North America and traveling the globe, Kenneth has also become a juggernaut in the studio. Over the past 7 years he's completed over 75 original tracks and remixes for labels including Perfecto, Coldharbour, Enhanced, Hope, Armada, Om, Cuurve, Alter Ego, Pacha and more.
Early hit singles include top 10 Beatport hits "Ghost in the Machine", "The Orange Room" and Coldharbour hits "Tonic" & "Achems Razor”
Last year saw his singles "Drive" & "Piece of Me" top the charts in the UK and Beatport. Recent remixes for Perfecto, "Need You Now" and "Firefly" garnered massive support and praise highlighted by "Firefly" holding the #1 on Radio 1 for two weeks. His recent remix "Stronger" was tapped by Ministry of Sound as "Track of the Day" and blogged out to over 1 million people by MOS. The end of 2012 found one of KT’s personal mashups, "Waterfall Language" become one of the biggest bootlegs in dance music, including opening Tiesto's Club Life radio show and Armin van Buurens' encore at the "DJ Mag Top 100" celebration party.
Now Kenneth is taking his production and A&R skills to the next level with the launch of his own imprint IAMPHOENIX records that launched in 2013, debuting with his own single "These Chords".
With the uncanny charisma of a rockstar, KT knows how to put on an awe inspiring performance that allows him to communicate with his audience on a unique level. 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."
