MusicDish, LLC, a music magazine publisher and artist marketing/development firm, announced the addition of Trinidad's preeminent DJ/Producer Lyndon Livingstone, aka Stonez in the DJ world, to its MusicDish Network roster.
"I originally met Lyndon on a trip to Trinidad in October 2005 to speak a conference by the Caribbean Regional Negotiating Machinery (CRNM), which is how I came to manage calypso-based Kobo Town whose album they were recording at the time," recalled MusicDish founder Eric de Fontenay. "Ever since, it has been an obsession to work with both these incredible talents from Trinidad. With Stonez joining Kobo Town on our roster, the obsession has become reality!"
In a career spanning two decades, Lyndon Livingstone - known in the DJ world as Stonez - has gone from teenage mix tape master to being the foremost producer of remixes and electronic music in Trinidad. He holds his own as the owner/talent behind the Razorshop production house, even while maintaining his status as the country's top house music DJ, sprinkling his sets with his own unique, often ground-breaking productions.
He has produced remixes or completed post production edits for many of Trinidad and Tobago major talents, including: David Rudder, Machel Montano, Mungal Pattessar, the late Andre Tanker, 3 Canal, Sherwin Winchester and Destra Garcia. Internationally, Stonez has worked with Wyclef Jean (Haiti), Kobo Town (Canada), TOK (Jamaican), Mr. Vegas (Jamaica) and Mimi (Japan).
Lyndon paid his dues as a resident DJ in Trinidad's top clubs throughout the 90's, but also added sound engineering to his skills set. The transition from DJ to producer came in his early twenties, when he was offered an opportunity to work with Robin Foster of the Engine Room production house. Stonez quickly mastered the art of desk top music production and was soon introducing his DJ peers to the joys of editing.
Stonez was then offered to be a production engineer at one of the country's top radio stations (96.1WEFM). When the operation expanded into a studio and record label (Link Up), he got the opportunity to showcase his mixing skills in a regular time slot during the island's annual Carnival festival and post production credits on much of the studio product.
Lyndon also branched out into sound design for fashion shows and theatre productions and started his own production house, Razorshop, in 1999. With one of the most state-of-the-art post production kits in the region, Razorshop has contributed significantly to radio and television ad campaigns for Coca Cola, Lucozade, Heineken, etc.
