He has played alongside with Anne Savage, Boy George, Judge Jules, the Freemasons and Brandon Block to name but a few and after winning the Ministry of Sound magazine DJ competition in 2000 also playing at the world famous club itself and after this Lee never looked back, quickly became a resident at Discotec, plus gigs at Fire, Hidden, Club Coliseum, and other top London clubs.

INTERVIEW

What music did you grow up to?
I grew up with my dad playing a lot of 60’s-80’s music, so I was a massive 60’s girl group fan. When I’m not playing house, DJing or listening to promos, I listen to anything.

 

What is the first record you ever bought?
My first vinyl was T’Pau and my first CD was Kylie’s first album.

 

What was your first ever DJ gig?
When I was 14-5 years old I was a mobile and pub DJ – my family was driving me around. My first club gig was on my 18th birthday in home town of Portsmouth.

 

If you had to revisit one club in the past, which one would it be and why?
It has to be Trade. I was lucky enough to get the tail end of the last year of the club and I would love to experience it like it was. I also had some amazing times at my first London residency, Discotec.

 

What are your thoughts about the music released these days? Who stands out?
It’s in a very good place, luckily the EDM crap with the same track pattern in the USA is slowly dying and even the gay-styled circuit music is being creative. I’m very much into jackin house at the moment and the producers Herve and Ill Phil are doing it for me, but I’ll always love a big remake or mashup, something that always interests a crowd.

 

What is your favourite track right now?
“No More” by Josh Parkinson has been rocking my floors for a couple of months now I can’t stop playing it. https://soundcloud.com/jos…/danny-howard-radio-rip-shazam-me

 

What should we expect from you at BEEFMINCE?
Expect pianos, funky beats, vocals, samples and sexy chunky house to get sweaty to!
