LBJ – Promo Mix May 2007

 

 

LBJ (Lazy Bones Jones) aka DJ Jonas Verwijnen Started his musical career playing in several Helsinki bands and began his LBJ electronic music project back in 1998. LBJ’s style was a unique mix of live instruments, Finnish vocals, powerful beats huge, bass and dub breaks, and awesome atmospherics, all combing into a new sound that was refreshingly different from the normal London breaks sound at that time.

LBJ had also played with DJ’s including Rennie Pilgrem, Krafty Kuts, Vini (RIP), Stanton Warriors, Jay Cunning, Soto, Chris Carter, Databass, Atomic Hooligan, Freq Nasty, Kraymon, Evil 9, Friendly, and Iain Taylor.

This DJ mix is more of a Tech Funk influenced mix with some great breaks layed on top.
