Kenneth Thomas is quickly positioning himself as one of the to DJs in the Metropolitan Detroit Area. Continually striving for perfection and bringing progressive trance to the area both have been his main desires. Acquiring the headlining resident position on Saturday nights at Motor Detroit, voted number one club in America by URB Magazine 2001, and launched Kenneth into the spotlight. Playing Toronto’s System Sound Bar and numerous events in Cleveland have aided him in becoming a force within the national realm. In Detroit he still concentrates on local club promoting and working relentlessly at bringing National as well as International talent to the scene.
An inspiring DJ, he says the following in his own words on how he got started in the music scene. “I was introduced to Paul Oakenfold’s, Tranceport by some friends in San Francisco. Before that I had no interest in Electronic music. Two years later after becoming submersed in trance and progressive house music I picked up turntables.” His early influences include such artist as Paul Oakenfold, Tiesto, Sandra Collins, Sasha & Digweed, Dave Seaman and Jon Pak. These influences along with some great natural ability and fantastic energy are what make listening to “KT” so great!
He has struggled in his home are of Detroit, trying to break through the heavy influences of the Detroit techno scene. As he says, “traditionally this town has not embraced progressive styles of electronic music and has ever so graciously adopted the saying “Trance Sucks” as its motto as the anti-progressive capital of the world. This is a very techno oriented city that doesn’t tend to validate any other form of electronic music. But with the help of my friends, fans, and other DJs we’ll work to broaden the horizons of this city or at least reach as many new people as possible.
“This is the most amazing sound I have ever encountered, I just want to share it with as many people as possible”
