Lee Brotherton, better known by his artist alias Bentley Jones (ベントレー・ジョーンズ, Bentorējōnzu), is an English recording artist who signed his debut album – TRANS//LATION to EMI Music Japan in 2008.[1][2] He has achieved countless club chart toppers under his remix pseudonym PHUNKST★R and has produced for many artists including but not limited to Rihanna, Katy Perry, will.i.am, Britney Spears, Nicki Minaj, Chris Brown, Taio Cruz, Calvin Harris, Cheryl Cole, Bruno Mars, Flo-Rida, Whitney Houston and Carly Rae Japsen.[3][4] His first notable release was his song "Dreams of an Absolution" which was featured in the video-game Sonic the Hedgehog and released on CD in Japan.[5][6] In 2009, he released his debut single and Japanese-language album, the prior reaching number 5 on the Recochoku international chart. Jones has been known to perform in English, French[7], Japanese, Scottish and Latin.

His debut English EP - So Much More... (2010) presented the title track – which was selected to be the main theme of Sonic & SEGA All-stars Racing – and the full version of "Swing Baby!" from Gaia Online's PROMAGEDDON. After breaking loose of the industry’s constraints and restrictions, Bentley quietly released the protest-memoir mini-album Finally Free (2010) addressing it exclusively to his fans. In June 2011, Bentley released his sophomore bi-lingual album, TRANS//LATION 2, a send-off toasting all areas of Bentley's career in music including a duet with school friend Liz Saunders, cover tracks from his first ever UK shows and brand new re-arrangements of his biggest hits. His third album, UPGRADE 1.0 (2012), features collaborations with J-pop princess May J., the young and fierce Japanese rapper SHUN, J-urban diva Tomomi Shibata (柴田知美), and son of the legendary Dr. DreCurtis Young.[8] His fourth album, Defying Gravity (2014), features the singles "Evolve" and "Nothing. Everything.", as well as a collaboration with his fans - known as "TRUTHSt4lk3rz" - on the track titled "Axiomatis". The album also includes remastered versions of previously unreleased songs "Devil's Cry (Shall Never Surrender)" (an adaptation of the title track from Capcom's video game - Devil May Cry 4) and "残酷な天使のテーゼ" (the legendary theme of the Japanese anime - Evangelion - originally recorded for the unreleased anime project - WE Я ANIMADE) [9] and a co-write with Final Fantasy vocalist Frances Maya for the track "夢のしずく".

Some of his compositions and writing work are credited to his production house and UK label, the Remix Factory. [13]
