Laurence Jones (DJ Larsupreme) is not just your run-of-the-mill music blogger. His carefully curated song selections and the writings that accompany them are vignettes that artfully paint the little-known stories behind the music. This gives an in-depth historical and cultural context to a modern audience who are sometimes separated by decades from the era in which these records were released. The readers are given the gift of being able to peer into the heart of the music, and a little into Laurence’s heart as well – DJ Action Slacks
