DJ Design was an early member of the Stones Throw roster, releasing the compelling instrumental album Gather Round as well as the “Sparkdala” single with Quasimoto. He produced the first two Foreign Legion albums Kidnapper Van and Playtight and toured the world as the dj for the group.
Design also remixed a track from the Beastie Boys album Hello Nasty called Negotiation Limerick File. In 2003 DJ Design formed his own record label, Look Records, which has released full lengths from Foreign Legion, A.G. (DITC), Phat Kat (of J Dilla fame ), G&D (Georgia Anne Muldrow and Dudley Perkins) and Grip Grand.

Jetlag has been a work in progress since 2004, with various artists flying back and forth to San Francisco to DJ Designs recording studio. The album features guest appearances by Stones Throw recording artists Guilty Simpson, Oh No & Roc C and former Stones Throw artist Dudley Perkins, football star Brandon Lloyd and Detroits Phat Kat of J Dilla fame. Between tour dates and the daytime gig as president of Look Records, DJ Design produced and mixed down the album to what it is today. Jetlag is a snapshot of Designs past as well as a look into the future of this eclectic producer.
