Winter Music Conference

DJ Tommy Bones

If you like your downtempo with hand drums, maracas, kalimbas, clanging cowbells, and vocalese, classic soul DJ Tommy Bones's African, East Indian, and Brazilian-flavor mixes will have you dancing like the possessed. This Connecticut Yankee gone global with releases on King Street, Wave, and most recently Defected cut his teeth in the Tri-State Area warehouse scene. But Bones is more than just a DJ. When so moved, the designer of the popular Got Soul? T-shirts leaves his station behind the decks to circle-dance with the crowd; this guy has got a spin, as smooth and fast as a top.
