LEE BURRIDGE - UNITED KINGDOM
Lee was spotted by a club owner from Hong Kong in 1990 and left the UK early in 1991 to work as a DJ there. During the first six months it became apparent that Hong Kong's underground dance music scene was non existent and Lee spent the next few years changing all that. Small Sunday night parties for 250 people grew quickly into a thriving nightclub scene which constantly saw him playing marathon sets on Friday, Saturday and Sunday nights. Overseas DJ's and club nights started to grace the shores of Hong Kong as it became one of those happening destinations on the global DJ circuit. This continued throughout the 90's. Lee's residency at the now defunkt Big Apple and Neptunes nightclubs became so popular he DJ'd six night a week for three years until eventually deciding to leave in 97. The decision was made after playing with Sasha and Craig Richards on numerous occasions and having them offer to launch his career in the UK.
Also during the 90's Lee ventured to Haadrin, Thailand. Haadrin is now a mecca for clubbers and it's full moon parties attract 10,000 + people every month.
2007 to present.
Lee's most recent triple mix CD for Balance was released in Fall 2007 to critical aclaim. Ranking as compilation of the month across many many publications and websites it then went nominated for compilation of the year at the PLUG awards. Lee's tour to support the CD ran through into 2008 covering most of the world and back.
Projects in 2008 include a new set of parties called 'GET WEIRD' which will start out as residencies on the left and right coast in San Francisco and New York. A return to the Burning Man festival in the Nevada desert will see him warping minds at various parties as well as this year his own sound system. Lee is also going back in the studio to "take it a bit more seriously this time" alongside new studio guru Tim Green (TG). Expect some wonky and weird music to see the light of day towards the end of 2008.
On a last note Lee has regularly been described as a DJ's DJ and I asked the ever popular journalistic question "Describe the music you play"? I asked . He said he usually doesn't have an answer to have an answer but narrowed it down at least. "The records that can't really be described. Those are the ones that always interest me. Wonky, Wobbly, bassline driven, trippy, melodic, mean, nasty, gentle, deep, spacious, distant and rocking.Interesting not obvious. Those are some of the words that I'd use to describe the records in my box".
