This Sunday’s (August 23) installment of The Progressive Underground profiles the iconic Detroit-based producer Raybone Jones and samples cuts from his discography along with playing the usual exquisite selection of deep house, techno, future soul, b-sides and rare grooves.  It all goes down Sunday, August 23, 8-11 pm EST on 101.9 WDET and 


Beginning his musical journey at the age of 11, he was noticed very quickly by older Jocks who took him under their wings. Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, Raybone’s formative years as a DJ have been spent amongst the likes of Mike Huckaby, Three Chairs and Rick Wade. Refining his craft he quickly became a sought after DJ in the Detroit local scene playing in venues where he was not even old enough to attend. He gained popularity in the late eighties and was a featured artist on the local TV show, “Too Hot.” Raybone has also been a featured DJ on several local radio shows like Highland Parks CJAM, Canadian radio station 91.5, and Club Insomnia WJLB. 

He has DJ’d at underground and local venues throughout Detroit. In June of 2000, he landed the front cover of City View Magazine and performed twice at the DEMF on the Detroit Stage. Moving people with his passionate DJ skills and love of vinyl, he mentored his nephew Kyle Hall as a DJ and introduced him to his peers thus spurring Kyle’s career as a producer and DJ. 

Raybone is also an accomplished producer having released recordings with Detroit legends TJ Dumas AKA Gabbamonkey and Rick “The Godson” Wilhite on Still Music and Rush Hour Recordings and is a member of the 313 DBN – Detroit Bass Networks.
