KENNETH THOMAS (Det)
IAMPHOENIX / Perfecto / Coldharbour / Armada
"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.
Hailing out of the Detroit, the birthplace of Techno, KT stands out with his emotional and melodic sound. Although often categorized in the trance vain, his ability to blend and explore all dance music genres are what makes his live performances such a unique 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 of emotion in every set and track.
Beyond traveling the globe, Kenneth has also become a juggernaut in the studio. Over the past 7 years he's completed over 50 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 his 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 KTs 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 in 2013 debuting with his own single "These Chords".
The future is glowing 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"
