Camouflaged Disco 10th Birthday

by Country Gents

Country Gents is the moniker of Lee Jones, DJ and producer.
A DJ since 1996, Lee was initially inspired by DiY Soundsystem and ethos in 1990 and ended up DJ’ing all over the UK, Europe and America before starting his own events in Reading and Oxford UK under the name Valley Moods Productions.

He started producing in 1999 and released his debut 12” that same year on Cross Section Records’ sub label Black No Sugar. He has releases on Transfusion, Soiree International, Pear Music, Manuscript Ukraine, and countless releases on Deep Cartel Recordings. In the early 2000’s he worked tirelessly with Dan Cartel putting on illegal parties all over Devon and South Wales and a multitude of other areas, with festival gigs including Glastonbury, The Glade and Secret Garden Party.

Over the years, a number of other producers have worked with Lee as fellow Gents, but currently he is working solo from his Bristol Bus Studio in the wilds of South Oxfordshire. On the performance front Joe Hockham is now a regular fixture and between them the House sound is developing yet again into new territory. Both Lee and Joe’s backgrounds are firmly in the Free Party/Rave/Festival scene that dates back to 1989. as mentioned earlier, in 1990, Nottingham sound system DiY erupted into the new culture of spontaneous guerrilla raves that began for that group of travellers and townsfolk alike, which was where it all really began for both of them.

These are exciting times - he launched a new label called Buslife at the end of 2015. Has gigs regularly with Camouflaged Disco in Sheffield and Duvet Vous? in Bristol to name just two.
The Country Gents Radio Show is weekly on Release FM from 8pm - 10pm GMT and on My House Your House fortnightly from 10pm - 12am GMT
The picture you see in the logo of the label also happens to be his home, hence the name!
