Jem Stone is the alter-ego of producer, DJ, artist and filmmaker Jem Panufnik, but you might know him as co-founder and the creative force behind the legendary label Finger Lickin’ Records. Releasing singles and DJing as Soul of Man, Prophets of Sound and Bush Doctors amongst many other guises, Jem is also responsible for the inimitable Finger Lickin’ artwork.

As his Mr Stone alias, Jem has an avenue for all his creative projects that defy genres, categories, rules and often sanity. He has released stomping house tracks in collaboration with Elite Force and Lee Coombs, twisted disco alongside JC, had releases on Finger Lickin’, Thrust and Washington DC’s premier funk label Fort Knox. As a remixer Mr Stone has sprinkled his jazzy dubby funk over tracks by Kraak & Smaak, Smoove & Turrell, Rennie Pilgrem, Drumattic Twins and Lindy Layton.

Add to this a plethora of specially commissioned TV and film music for BBC, Sky, Five, UKLiving, Channel 4 plus numerous soundtracks for live shows including contemporary dance pieces at The Place in London, The Alternative Hair Show at Royal Albert Hall, fashion shows from Sydney to Singapore and most recently the street dance-meets-circus show Cacophony which toured UK theatres last year. To sample Jem Stone's visual and musical treats, head over to the Youtube link below.

Lately Jem has found a home for his jazzier flappier side at a Brighton label whose philosophy is not far from his own. Freshly Squeezed Music is at the forefront of the nicely bubbling electro swing scene, which means it’s the perfect springboard for Jem’s ragtime-with-beats passion.

Now let me see those jazz hands, people…
