Lamont “Mizont” Depew was born in Kingston N.Y on June 20, 1976. At the age of 3 years old, he would move to Boston Massachusetts with his mom & two older brothers. Every Saturday morning, the sounds of W.I.L.D’s “The Time Tunnel” would fill the apartment with Disco & Soul Classics that left a lasting impression on him. Also on Saturday nights, K.I.S.S 108 would play some underground music with Top 40 Pop in between. He would sneak out of bed just to experience the different sounds they would be playing without waking up the whole house. All these moments from the 80’s came into fruition on New Year’s Eve in 94 when he was convinced by his mother to go to “The Boston Loft” because she said, “you need a change in your life for the good”. So on that night Mizont’s life literally changed at that moment.
So from 1996 until this present time Mizont dedicated his time and energy into playing Dance Music in his hometown of Boston and other parts of New England. Making stops in different states exploring and sharing different sounds with the intent of fine tuning his craft. It was never about the money or fame for the selector as he wouldn’t accept a fee from %99 percent of his gigs he’s played. “Dance Music saved my life and I’m grateful for that. I refused getting paid for gigs because I wanted to help build something in Boston so the world can feel our presence of love and commitment to the scene”.
In January of 2020 Mizont created a internet radio show called “Basement Vibes” for Basswise radio in the United Kingdom. The show lasted 35 weeks until the station ceased operations in September of 2020. Nowadays you can find Mizont on istreem radio with his electric room monthly show
