DJ Bone Intro:
is one of Detroit's most coveted underground vinyl technicians. This very talented and highly sought after Artist plays events and clubs worldwide, has held a residency position at four of Detroit's top clubs and produces music inspired by the city in which he lives, Detroit. His record labels Subject Detroit and Encounter are futuristic and unearthly while still displaying the true essence of Detroit's Techno Soul.
Bone began his DJ career spinning groundbreaking sets weekly at The Love Club (The Shelter). From there he gained a dedicated following which eventually led to him playing at three different clubs five nights a week as well as several underground parties in Detroit. Juan Atkins
and Eddie Fowlkes
also recruited him to provide weekly, live mixes for their Deep Space Radio show on WGPR 107.5.
Observing a lack of electronic music, fitting his style, led Bone to produce original songs to incorporate into his funky and eclectic sets. He took it a step further and started his own labels Subject Detroit and Encounter focusing on true Sonic Soul.
Always looking to expand minds and move bodies, Bone took on the challenge avoided by many DJs before him, familiar with Detroit by name only, sacrificing many international bookings to accept a residency offer from Motor. In late 1997, Bone began his residency at the Motor Lounge in Hamtramck (bordering Detroit on all sides) pioneering an underground Detroit Techno night. Within a month, the number of Bone's weekly session attendees topped 1,000 as well as tens of thousands of others tuning in to his live set broadcast on the radio every Friday from midnight until 2 am (87.9 FM).
For nearly three years, he amazed his crowds, which included out-of-towners from as far as Japan and Australia alongside his Detroit faithful. Eventually Bone decided to depart from the club to focus on his labels & neglected international bookings.
Bone also has performed during concept car shows at the North American International Auto Show (2000, 2001), the Cadillac Concept car unveiling in Geneva, Switzerland the Detroit Electronic Music Festival (DEMF), several fashion events and was asked to serve as a Board Member for the 2002 DEMF.
Observing the trend of producers being booked to Dj as opposed to actual DJs fueled Bone to go against the grain and establish himself first and foremost as a DJ. He believes that an individual's talent should speak for itself and not be overshadowed by hype.
Bone is currently focusing his attention on his record labels (Subject Detroit and Encounter), concentrating on pushing the imaginations and expectations of those who live for a true underground Detroit vibe.
