Husband of one, Father of two, Brother to many. James Hardy aka
DJ LostNFound (LNF) has pursued his passion for music since the age of 16. What started off as a pastime of making beats, by the grace of God, has grown into a full-fledged multi-faceted ministry.
DJ LostNFound started making beats at the age of 16. At the time, he admittedly thought of it as a phase that would come and go. However, as time progressed making music became more and more of his passion. By the age of 18 James, known then as producer J Bueno, was fully committed to chasing the dream of becoming a music producer. He pursued internships with BMI & Danish/American Producer & Writer Mutiman which didn’t work out in the long run, but they taught valuable lessons on patience & pursuit. As J Bueno, DJ LostNFound, has worked with a dozen artists nationwide.
Once James graduated from college, he began to learn the art of mixing live production. In May of 2012, James was afforded the opportunity to join the Sound Team of New Life Outreach International which was and is his home church within the Bronx, New York.
Six years later James can still be seen running sound on Sunday mornings but now as the ministry leader. In the winter of 2017, James began learning the art of DJing. His goal was to supply Believers with a DJ who’s main goal was to provide a party atmosphere
without quenching the Holy Spirit (1 Thessalonians 5:18-22).
Little did he know that God’s plan for his life was far more expansive! With less than eight months of DJing experience, DJ LostNFound joined the Rise Up Worldwide family with the idea of serving a global audience because “faith comes by hearing, and hearing the word of God.”
