Laidback Prince




As a military brat with the opportunity to see the world at a young age, Tim Jones has a variety of musical influences that come from all around the world. Being influenced by the likes of Stevie Wonder to John Digweed, his musical blends seem to be filled with a lot of funky beats and melodies.  Other dj/producers such as Dj Dan, Donald Glaude, Lazy Rich, and Wolfgang Gartner have kept his ear for nasty electro alive.  This is what motivates Tim to keep bringing the fire.  Tim would start his musical journey in the early part of 2003 with F.L.I, a label he would start with several of his closest friends. While with the label he would discover his love and passion for electronic music.  After this there would be no turning back.  Tim has had the opportunity to play at some of the most popular spots in south Florida and on some very popular Internet radio shows.
â�¨Growing up all around the U.S. Jose Norat has made it a point to utilize music to make a difference.  Born in San Juan, Puerto Rico many influences have driven this need to use music to create a change.  Joses’s musical preferences range from great bands like El Gran Combo de Puerto Rico to the global sounds of bands like U2 and Green Day.  Jose’s determination to hard bass, good vibes, and edgy beats has always been in the forefront.  Jose is also influenced by the likes of Sasha & Digweed, DJ Dan, Donald Glaude, and Deadmau5 just to name a few.  This very unique combination of musical prefrence and electronic music influence is the result of his search for the ultimate sound to create great change in his lifetime.  Now living in Miami, the Mecca of electronic music, the scene has opened the doors of his imagination.  To Jose, music is his life and as he would say, “Electronic music is a combination of positive emotions and the need to MOVE!  So always feel good and make sure to take the journey”.  This journey has taken Jose to some of the most happening venues in south Florida and has played on some of the internets more popular radio shows.
Together Tim Jones and Jose Norat become one under the name DeviceRATT and they have definitely made a name for themselves in the underground scene.
