THE TAKE 5 SERIES
Joe Stone is a Dutch DJ best known for his remix of “Freak,” a single by fellow artists R3hab and Quintino. Some fans might know him under his alternative stage name, Inmado. He joined record label Spinnin’ Records in 2015 after winning a remix contest.
Asides from his globally recognized remixes, Joe Stone has released many successful original singles of his own: his very first singles, 2015 “The Party (This is How We Do It)” and “Freak (And You Know It),” both charted on Ultratop. “The Party” even peaked at #23 on Billboard’s U.S. Dance Club Songs.
More recently, earlier this year he released a handful of singles with artists such as Hayley May, Jake Terry, and Four of Diamonds. His most recent release, “Feeling Dynamite,” features vocals by singer Ally Brooke. The single already boasts over a million streams across listening platforms.
Asides from being a House DJ, Joe Stone is a gamer and a new father. Pictures the artist has shared on social media show an adorable newborn daughter, and a shiny new PlayStation 5. This year has certainly been a memorable one for Joe Stone!
