LWE Podcast 07: DJ Bone

When we finally figured out that Detroit’s DJ Bone was behind “No Sleep (True To Da Roots),” the first mysteriously launched release from Sect Records, it was only a matter of time before we rifled through his deep back catalog and saw a long history of quality tunes. Would his fast and furious producing style carry over to his DJ sets? The answer is loud and furiously clear in this exclusive mix which provides a sweat-inducing overview of Bone’s label, Subject Detroit. Try to keep up.

Read an interview with DJ Bone after the jump.

When and where did you make the mix?

DJ Bone: I did this mix live in my studio last week (9/8/08). I was motivated by something interesting I read so I jumped up and did the mix. They’re always better when I’m inspired.

What’s the concept behind the mix?

The concept was to bring the moodier side of techno into a dancefloor mentality. It’s not bang-bang-bang, but it definitely makes you want to move. And once you’re moving you start to feel the emotion come out of each song. So I’m basically mixing emotions on this mix.

Who are a few of your favorite DJs and why?

I have to be completely honest with you about this, there are very few DJs I admire. This is because of all the great DJs I witnessed in Detroit when techno was kicking off. Those years spoiled me for life. I always dig when Derrick May plays. I also love listening to Laurent Garnier, Theo Parrish, Aaron Carl, Deetron and Ken Ishii. I think DJ Bone isn’t half bad either!

What can we expect from you for the rest of the year?

I am going to finish up my new album titled Another Language and release another mix CD. We also have a couple of compilations coming out and a few secret projects that I can’t speak about (too many of my concepts have been stolen already). I’m also doing some gigs in Europe.

Thanks for the correction, Nuid.

very deep & exciting mix – not a big fan of the high BPM though…

Vergel E  on September 23, 2008 at 12:04 PM

Love the mix. Great example of where the concept of an album should go. Hearing the songs in context to each other is a great way to convey the energy that they are in combination to each other.

Having been a big fan of the Subject Detroit sound. This is a great return to the futurism that Detroit techno originally embraced. Well done dj Bone & LWE for sharing it out.

I’m booking DJ Bone for something.

james kartsaklis  on September 23, 2008 at 6:18 PM

@yttrium… times like this i wish you 1. still lived at the arcade and 2. were serious

too late for the lo-go co-op dance?

yttrium  on September 24, 2008 at 8:47 AM

upon further investigation I realized DJ Bone is probably pretty pricey to have come DJ a private event.

anyone want to go halfsies?

yttrium  on September 24, 2008 at 9:22 AM

from his booking:

“DJ Bone’s current fee starts at $2500 and goes up depending on circumstances
of the event; plus 15% booking fee, flight, 1-2 night hotel, etc.”

Steve do you think there are enough DJ Bone fans in Chicago who would pay to see him?

littlewhiteearbuds  on September 24, 2008 at 9:24 AM

Eek, I’d rather not assess that here.

kuri  on September 26, 2008 at 3:01 PM

badass mix from Bone showcasing the label, and less on his skills than the usual Attack mixes, but still good nonetheless. great to see that that Beatport finally got some of these and others I’ve been drooling over uploaded.

as for booking, I would think that he could come down in price if it’s for a good cause.

makarov  on October 20, 2008 at 9:56 AM

yes i like this!!!

t0m5k1  on November 7, 2008 at 4:54 AM

Bone just rox
i have all his attack mixes & others too, i just cant get enough…for a while it seemed techno was on a downward spiral with cheap replication & variations of the same theme but then i found bone & man i have not turned back.
the tribal feel to his trax just grip my soul & pluck my feelings like a harp! i need more, we need more…

37 min – 42 min is pure audio rape. Hands are currently in air.

littlewhiteearbuds  on January 30, 2009 at 6:33 AM

WTF is “audio rape” and how is it a good thing?

harpomarx42  on February 13, 2009 at 11:45 PM

“WTF is “audio rape” and how is it a good thing?”
It’s GOOD, goddamnit!
