Having recorded their second EP, 'the teepee ep', in London in the summer of 2010, bone enjoyed a summer of fun, playing festivals and gigs in both UK and Ireland.
join the journey that is 'bone'
come along on their audio road trip
which has taken them ... from
Dublin to London to New York
to London to Dublin ...
with many pit stops along the way
Irish soul with a transatlantic flavour
and a touch of Eastern spice
raw, bare and beautiful - down and dirty
whether you are
falling, crawling, walking, running
or just standing still
come inside and enjoy the vibe
ladies and gentlemen -
this is 'bone'
On Wednesday February 16th, bone will perform a showcase at the Wheelbarrow in Camden (55 Camden High Street), London.

L.B.S - Only three letters but several different meanings: ‘Laurent + Ben + Stephane’/ ‘Live Booth Sessions’ / ‘Loud Bass & Samples’…
"After eighteen months on tour with my musicians, I began to realize that I could get as much pleasure from playing live in a festival as I could from DJing in clubs. Whilst on tour, we developed a very open style of playing: interacting, improvising, and expressing ourselves freely, something that I thought I could only achieve through my DJ sets. It was obvious that after a long period spent touring round some of the biggest festivals, I was going to feel an overwhelming desire to go back to my roots (clubs and records), but the idea of finding myself alone behind two decks was impossible. So why not combine the two? Why not play other people’s records alongside my own tracks, played live? Why not put the two together to make one? After more than twenty years spent DJing, I really wanted to take it a step further. Sometimes, when I see other DJs playing out today I get the feeling that they’re bored, that they don’t get off on what they’re doing anymore. It is very clear to me why the idea behind L.B.S came to life because not only will it give my work a new lease of life, it will also offer a new and very different experience to club goers."
Straight out of the DJ booths of some of the best clubs on the planet, L.B.S offers the best of both worlds by combining the versatility and flexibility of the DJ set with the ability to experiment tracks live. Two decks, a Rhodes, several keyboards and machines will be used to create organic improvised four-hour sets guaranteed to work the dance floor.
"I especially want to carry on creating and exploring whether through Djing or playing live. But also, get even closer to the public than we can in a festival. During the live sections of L.B.S I will be developing and fine-tuning new tracks in front of (and with) the crowd to create the live of the future, but also to test out new tracks. We’ll be taking our time, something that isn’t really the done thing nowadays!! One thing is sure, the dance floor never lies… Alongside Benjamin and Scan X I’ll be creating tracks live for my next tour and for my future releases."

Recloose ‘Can’t Take it’ Luciano remix – Released March
Mini Q & A with Carl Craig
When and how did planet e start?
Planet E Communications began in 1991 as my desire to control my own musical destiny. I was tired of other people having a say in what I did musically (A&R, partners, etc) so I took the bull by the horns and obtained my independence.
What was the first release?
69 ‘4 Jazz Funk Classics’. I am a big Throbbing Gristle fan.
What does planet e represent for you?
Pure independent vision. If the music is good then let’s release it to the people. Planet-E has been all about music.
Where does the name planet e come from?
There was a documentary on space travel (which had Brian Eno's ‘Apollo’ as the sound track) and I was so entranced by it. I'm an idea man (I should have been in advertising). Planet E is Earth and the communication has a double meaning between the voice communications between the space travelers and NASA, but also the fact that using the word "communications" doesn’t restrict the future possibilities of PE's endeavors.
Tell me about the compilation - 20 years is a long time! How did the name of the compilation come about also..?
It’s a celebration! We never celebrated 10yrs so this it! The name came from the idea "It’s been a fucking long time"…
How do you feel about the artists coming on tour with you? What can people expect from the tour?
They're all geniuses! What can be expected is that we're going to have a great time celebrating the music. No bullshit.
And about your hometown Detroit…
Detroit is musically a magical city. We've had so much wonderful music to come from here; from native Detroiters, who have been influential to so much other music globally. I find that I make much better music when I'm in Detroit. To outsiders the city seem desolate and ominous, but to me the city is so electric!

The day of many - Wednesday 26th January 2011
Facebook event HERE:
In early 2010, Zombie Nation conducted the experiment to make an interactive Song with his fans using Facebook and Twitter. The Mind of Many resulted in a Song that was made of 40 sounds that people sent and countless voters. It was a great success and brought joy to everybody involved.
Now it is time to continue and head for new frontiers. The idea is the same, this is the evolution: The "day of many" will be condensed into 90 minutes TV broadcast from the Zombie Studio in munich. A song will be made live from scratch purely from sounds people send during the show. In the chat you will be able to comment and influence decisions and directions. and This has never been done before and there is no test run - expect chaos and sweat to rule the Zombie Studio!
During the session you will also be the first to get a sneak peak of Zombie Nation´s new single "Chickflick" and the Remixes by Boris Dlugosch and Sirius Mo - and you will get to download a free edit of Zombie Nation´s Squeek!
Event: The day of many
Date: Wednesday 26th January 2011
TIME: 7PM GMT / 8PM CET
