It's back to school here in Nashville and I figured that would be a good time to get back to a genre that I don't feature very much here on Mode.Radio, techno.
DJ Bone is a Detroit techno DJ and is considered an independent, visionary, true-school DJ. DJ Bone has held a residency at four of Detroit's top clubs and produces music inspired by the city in which he hales from, Detroit. His record label is called Subject Detroit.
Bone experienced the emotion, passion and energy of Detroit Techno first hand at the infamous Music Institute. What he witnessed there would serve to be Bone's main influences.
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. An invitation to provide fortnightly, live mixes for the Deep Space Radio show on 107.5 in Detroit was also extended.
After hearing Bone in Detroit (1996 Love Club Anniversary Party), Laurent Garnier booked him to headline at the Rex Club in Paris. Soon after word spread and Bone was invited to play events all over Europe.
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 in Detroit every Friday from midnight until 2 am (87.9 FM). He stayed at Motor for three years.
Now DJ Bone is very busy running Subject Detroit and DJ out in Europe and the US. This set was done for Mixmag in July, 2015. You can follow DJ Bone and learn more info about him on his website, http://dj-bone.com/.. Enjoy!
