DJ Bone’s top 10 tracks for a country retreat 

Baron Von Bone

One of the unsung heroes of Detroit techno, DJ Bone is best known for his untouchable technical ability behind three turntables (often simultaneously), delivering unrelenting, upfront dancefloor motivators with a dizzying use of the crossfader. Everyone has to put their feet up once in a while though, which is exactly what Bone’s been doing in the English countryside this week. What does Bone listen to on such an excursion? Well fortunately he’s provided the answer, in the form of a day-in-the-life playlist.

Catch DJ Bone at Bloc Weekend from 11th-13th March.

“It’s not often I get the opportunity to take a few days off to relax in the countryside. So, when we noticed that I had some downtime between dates during my UK tour it only made sense to chill in the country in Gloucestershire. Friends, food & drink and dope music. Time to relax and listen to these jams”

06.28 (sunrise): Byron the Aquarius – ‘Aquarian Voyage’

The best song to rise to. I call it the day-starter.

08.00: The Jingle Punks Hipster Orchestra – ‘Climax’

Very inspired rendition of a great Usher song.

10.00: Sons of Serendip – ‘Don’t You Worry Child’

Amazing vocal quartet of brothers with a classical twist. Reminds you that sometimes you just gotta chill.

12.00: Fabrice Lig – ‘Hmong Dignity (Aaron Carl Remix)’

Some midday grooves from Fabrice & AC to keep my energy up.

14.00: D’Angelo – ‘Ain’t That Easy’

Pure, deep funk and soul on a cosmic level!

15.30: Royce da 5-9 – ‘Tabernacle’

Detroit is full of true stories…this is one of them.

17.54 (sunset): Israel Kamakawiwo’ole (AKA Iz) – ‘Hawai’i ’78’

Amazing song that reminds me of my beautiful Mother.

22.00 (nightcap): Moodymann – DJ Kicks mix

A roaring fire, a tall glass of brandy and the funk. [no Youtube track available, but read our review here]

00.00: Bill Withers – ‘Grandma’s Hands’

Song title says it all.

01.00: Donald Byrd feat. Isaac Hayes – ‘Feel Like Lovin You Today’

Cuz I’m missing my wife while on the road.

Master Bone
