DJ Lesley Jones is an Amsterdam based DJ and producer, formerly known as Funky Junkie. Lesley has been inspired by music since he can remember. At the age of 9 he was already making mixtapes for the pretty girls in his street, when he realized music is a universal language. Lesley started his DJ career at a local radio station at age 13 and is still hosting his own radio show at Amsterdam Funk Channel, a Funk Soul and R&B station which Lesley founded back in 2010. Two years after he started as a radio host, age 15, Lesley was asked to substitute for a friend who was resident DJ at one of the few clubs in his hometown of IJmuiden (NL) and that was the ignition for his professional DJ career.
