What is up Grooove Cruisers… We’re just 2 short months away from Groove Cruise Miami, 2013, and shit is getting REAL! So much to look forward to, and so much going on that we can’t wait to share with you guys.
In the meantime, a brand new episode of Groove Cruise Radio… this week featuring Detroit’s own… DJ Kenneth Thomas!
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. 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 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. Last fall saw the culmination of his work come together with his hybrid 2XCD Compilation/Album “Perfecto Presents Kenneth Thomas” that saw critical acclaim. This past year alone his single Drive chopped the charts in the UK and his recent remixes for Perfecto, Need You Now and Firefly, have also garnered massive support. Firefly even held the top spot on Radio 1 for two weeks early in 2011.
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”..
