Resonate – Episode 002

Hi everyone,

For those of you in Scotland – Hope you are enjoying the school holidays and managing to find plenty things to keep the kids occupied.

I have been away for a week in sunny Cornwall with the family and had a great time. The weather was amazing and it was great to spend time relaxing and sight-seeing with my family.

Official Announcement from Kenneth Thomas

All good things…
😊

Twenty years ago this summer I had a dream in my heart, to take this sound I had so fallen in love with and make it my own. Trance was resonating through me. After I found this sound somewhere around 1997 I have always said “this is the sound I have always been looking for”. At a crossroads in my life at that time I decided to get turntables and start djing trance as a way to distract myself in that shifting season. Little did I know that this decision would lead me on a two decade life arc that would take me all over the world, connect me with incredible new friends from all cultures and countries and let me see how wonderful life is through the lens of a record box.
🌎🗺✈️
I am at another crossroads in my life. A beautiful and wonderful crossroad, and again making a shift. It is time for me to turn the page on the chapter of my life that has been Kenneth Thomas. These next two shows that I have booked, April 6th in New York City and Saturday May 25th at The Grasshopper in Ferndale Mi will be my last shows as Kenneth Thomas.
🔊
It is with such a grateful and blessed heart that I graduate into my next season. I look back at my journey, the last 20 years, and am filled with such awe that I have been able to walk in the things I have walked in, work with the incredible people I have worked with, experience so much and make so many dear friends. As I sit here now dreaming back over the past years, one of the things that jumps out the most is the COUNTLESS smiles I have shared with endless people at the shows. If you have seen me DJ, then you have seen me smile ear to ear. And there is a very good chance we have smiled back at each other. Even if we never met, never spoke words to each other, we shared a heart connection beyond this world. We resonated spiritually together for an instant, beyond ourselves. Those are the moments I will remember the most. Spiritually connecting with rooms and crowds of people all over the world. Verbal language did not matter. There is a deep level of power that trance music taps into. Its like a gateway to Heaven for just a few moments that can open up in our hearts. The presence of The Creator can fill the room. There is no sound on earth now or ever before that is like trance. Its the fragrance of Heaven, Gods life breathing through sound.
🙏🏼💫

There is a laundry list of dreams and goals that I leave on the table as I step away, and those things have at times weighed heavy on my heart. And to be transparent with you, even haunted me at times. I have wept many times chasing this dream. But the burdens of the industry all but flutter to ash as I turn the page and my heart comes alive in knowing all that this journey entailed and how incredible it has been.
🦋
Gods creation never dies, nothing ever dies, it only transitions. And as I transition, I will still be making music. I will move into a new outpouring of the frequencies God has put in me for this new season of life. I will be writing house music with some good friends, I’m also involved with a beautiful new act stretching the boundaries of genres, I will spread my love of music and melody into songwriting, producing, scoring for film & tv and beyond. But for me to engage fully in what my next season is, I need to celebrate and move forward from the past season.
☺️😊

Thank you so much for allowing me the honor of going on this journey with you. Thank you for your passion for what I have carried and thank you for allowing me any amount of time to share the melody of my heart with you through the thousands of tracks, dj sets and podcasts I have been a part of. I have been so blessed to be able to walk out this 20 year adventure with all of you.
🙏🏼🥰

If you can make it to New York in April or Detroit in May for The Final Show, please do. I would love to see as many of my old friends as possible as we celebrate this sound one more time. And if you are a promoter who wants me to come back to your city one last time, please message me asap. I will take select offers in my favorite markets til the end of the summer. Cleveland, Texas, Las Vegas, LA, im looking at you 😉
🎉 🔊✈️🙏🏼

With Love, Respect, Honor and a heart full of gratefulness,

-Mark Kenneth Thomas

Synergie Club Night

Last Friday (22nd March) I was back again at Synergie Youth Project in Dunfermline along with special guest DJ UR from Edinburgh.
Synergie team kitted out their room with a laser and smoke machine and a large video screen as well as plenty of LED lights.

I played a more ‘big room’ set with tracks from MaxLife, Jesus Loves Electro and some from Revealed Recordings.
