Few, if any, selectors embody the essence of Detroit as perfectly as DJ Bone. Having cut his teeth during techno’s formative years with residencies at many of the city’s iconic clubs, Bone’s fluid yet technically flawless mixing- often across three or more decks- has won him an international following amongst those who know.
Though his style is often typified as hard-and-fast, Bone is no stranger to mining more soulful territory- last year saw Bone release a brace of EPs via Don’t Be Afraid under the newly-created alias Differ-Ent, including the emotive and deeply personal M.O.M, a tribute to his mother’s passing.
DJ Bone’s contribution to the Crack Mix series catches him at his best, kicking off with ominous, swirling warehouse techno before launching into a giddying, crossfader-slamming assault.
DJ Bone appears at Bloc Weekend on 11- 13 March.
