Frankie Bones was the original and first DJ coming out of the Brooklyn Underground during the mid 80's with the vision of what was yet to come on the Global front of Electronic Dance Music culture. His early mission came in the many releases of Fourth Floor and Nugroove Records. In a time when timing meant everything, the buzz of his early works caught the attention of the rapidly growing scenesters in the London Orbital M25 raves during the Summer Of Love in 1988.
Those early "Bonesbreaks" vinyls led Frankie to playing at a rave called "Energy" which had 25,000 people. With the scene already reaching critical mass, Bones had set off a fierce bidding war between XL Recordings and Deconstruction Records which led to two albums by Musto & Bones. The U.K. was very impressed by Frankie's unique Brooklyn style which was a raw-freestylish-bass-in-your-bass-bins-but-electro-bass style that was raw enough to keep the entire scene and industry at bay, waiting for the underground to bubble over. With gigs, remixing and production work pouring in by the truckload, Frankie ventured out into the early European scene playing key breaking parties in France, Holland, Italy, Denmark and Germany. Each country taking note of his style and wanting to license music.
