BIOGRAPHY For nearly a decade, London-born DJ Kensho has been based in Phuket, Thailand and has been a popular member of the Asia music scene. A top rate performer delivering energetic sets, from corporate events to vinyl-only hip-hop sessions at Phuket Town's Vinyl Café, he has an eclectic taste in music and is able to turn his hand to whatever the occasion needs, creating the perfect atmosphere for any event. An in-demand DJ, Kensho is one of Asia’s hottest musical exports. He has amassed a long list of DJ residencies at well known nightclubs and international 5-star hotels throughout Europe and Asia, most at many beachfront nightclubs, what tropical Asian nightlife is best known for. Nearly twenty years of working as a professional DJ has seen him perform across Europe, UK; France and Portugal and Asia; Macau, Hong Kong, Singapore, Cambodia and extensively across Thailand. When he is not DJing, you can find him hard at work in his studio, producing tracks and creating sounds under his Bushido Beats brand (www.facebook.com/djkbushidobeats). Over the years, his work has provided the soundscapes for many types of venues including clubs, beach bars, restaurants, lounges and hotels/resorts. DJ Kensho also runs a successful DJ training course from his private studio on Phuket island. He teaches all formats from vinyl to digital starting from the basics.
