Deconstructed Live: Lee Jones (Hefner/My My/Inertia) DJ Set

Lee Jones released his stunning debut album under the Hefner pseudonym on Inertia Records in 2000, humanising his already characteristic blend of film noir atmospherics and precision guided beats with the pensive lyrics of singer Josee Hurlock. The rich arrangements of ‘Level Green’ and title track ‘Residue’ were as familiar as they were breathtaking, and as good an introduction as any to one of the UK’s finest independent labels.

Will Nott from the Inertia label had recced DC before sending his artists down, Will having graced Deconstructed #3 earlier in 2001. I’d interviewed Lee, and brother Russ Jones (aka Victor Malloy) a few times on the back of early singles and later (brilliant) albums, with Lee having graced the downbeat room of an earlier club in 1999, before playing DC. Russ later became a Deconstructed regular, returning four times over the next few years, often with Phil Marten in tow.  This exclusive set from Lee, recorded at DC LIve #15 in October 2001, is typically eclectic and effortlessly stylish; soulful house, a smattering of hip hop and a touch of jazz and latin. Now recording as My My, Lee regulary rips apart the clubs of his home city of Berlin.
