Down to the Bone is an acid jazz group led by British DJ Stuart Wade, who formed the band with Chris Morgans (who has now left) in 1996. The group is very popular in the UK, where they are "hailed as the kings of UK jazz groove."[citation needed] Their music is a mix of funk and jazz.

The music[edit]

Down to the Bone is unique in that the leader, Stuart Wade, does not play any instruments at all. Instead, Wade uses a dictaphone to hum tunes into [1], which are then recorded by the band.
