Gones is a French DJ and producer, who has always kept in mind his values, musically and personally…
In the beginnings
He started building his career from the moment he jumped up to a stage for the first time to play his horn with his school band in 1982.
After messing up his dad’s turntable, he received his first one and started collecting records.
1988 was the year of his first public appearance, as DJ, in front of teenagers like him.
During the 90′s Hip Hop Golden Era, he soon started to share stage with the noteworthy greats of the Hip Hop & R&B french scene, and internationals artists such as Buckshot LeFonque, The Roots, Das Efx, just to name a few.
This visibility gives him the opportunity to develop his own projects in different renowned clubs in Paris. Managing to keep his integrity intact is what made him leave his imprint with his signature DJ sets.
