DJ Just Nine
Kenichi Thomas (aka DJ Just Nine) has been exploring music without regard for genres from a young age. That expansive taste, plus a desire to perfect the craft of DJing has earned him notable achievements like touring with Atmosphere; serving as I Self Devine’s tour DJ for five years; and performing on high-profile stages like Rock The Bells, SxSW, Low End Theory, Afropunk Festival, 2018’s Super Bowl Live, and Soundset. Just Nine currently holds down the decks for Minneapolis hip hop artist Greg Grease, countless club nights throughout the Twin Cities, and as a founding member of the future-funk band Astralblak (formerly known as ZULUZULUU). Together with Astralblak, he has released two albums on Sound Verite Records (2016’s “What’s The Price” and 2018’s “Seeds”).
