Q-Burns - real name Michael Donaldson - was born in a matchbox in Louisiana. A Louisiana matchbox, no less. As a child, he moved from the matchbox, gradually working his way up to a sock drawer. It was from here that the infant Q-Burns completed his formal education, becoming the first Louisianan to gain a degree while wholly living in a sock drawer. Dissatisfied with the fleshpots of Natchitoches and Lake Pontchartrain (and believe us, they are numerous), Q-Burns headed south to Florida where he is now mainly based. He took up nude fencing, competition macramé and also DJing. He has built a sterling reputation as producer and DJ and was also placed second in the recent World Macramé face-off in Singapore, recreating a pair of Technics 1200s entirely from wool. He has released several albums and is currently promoting Future Past Tense on Eighth , a collection of his remixes, some of them available in a limited edition entirely made from macramé*
