Bimbo Jones began when DJ Lee Dagger made studio partners with Marc JB. Lee’s background began in 1984 after tuning into the New York Hip Hop Breakdancing scene. He began DJ’ing in 1991 after being drawn into the legendary house sets of his favourites DJ Sasha, Carl Cox and Massive Attack at those now infamous free parties. Meanwhile, “JB” started out playing thrash guitar in underground clubs, before becoming the accomplished multi-instrumentalist he is today. Together they have rapidly become one of the UK & U.S # 1 remix production teams having reworked the likes of Lady Gaga, Rihanna, The Killers, Kylie, Keri Hilson, Kayne West & Ne-Yo, The Pussycat Dolls, Usher, Tom Jones and Annie Lennox to name but a few. They’ve also been nominated for the last 4 years at the Miami Winter Music Conference for best remixer and were recently in the running for best remixer at the Radio FG Awards held in Monaco for their production skills on Lady Gaga “Alejandro”.
They’re also posed to hit their 70th Club Chart # 1 and have sat at the top of the UK Commercial Chart #1 spot for two consecutive weeks with their co-production skills on Meck ft Leo Sayer “Thunder In My Heart Again”. They were also co-producers alongside the legend that is Sergio Mendes on his 2010 Latin Grammy award winning album “Bon Tempo” awarded Best Brazilian Contemporary Pop Album and 2010 Grammy nominee for Best Contemporary World Music Album.
Having originally started off song writing for artists within the 19 Entertainment group they are writing worldwide with artists old and new and are also in the process of co-writing their next album with Sergio Mendes, Gram’ma Funk, Cyko Logic, Katherine Ellis, Angie Brown Beverley Knight and Cyndi Lauper. They’re working with Cyndi Lauper on the score for a Broadway Musical.
