Lee Burridge is a DJ, producer, and record label owner who helped launch the underground club scene in Hong Kong during the early 1990s and is one of the most known artists in electronic music today.
“It was the true beginning of me making my life of music. I loved Hong Kong of course and ended up staying for six years. The DJ gig was, again, in a commercial bar but during the first few years there I started playing most nights incognito across the road in another empty club. I was lucky enough to be a part of the earliest dance music movement in that country and really helped shape the scene there. I was also fortunate to discover Koh Pagn Ghan in Thailand really early on in 1992. Think hippies playing drums on the beach for full moon and two hours electricity a day. I visited that island, Haadrin in particular, for months on end playing sunrise sets on the beach and then for days at a little hidden club. Well, a wooden shack that was a snooker venue before it transformed, called the backyard.”
In 1997 Lee returned to the UK and started playing in his home country. Known for his sets in which he combines various electronic sound trends until the early hours of the morning, Burridge was a member of the English Tyrant Soundsystem (along with Craig Richards, Graham Duncan and Sasha), and also released compilations for such labels as Global Underground and Balance.
In 2011 he launched a new project, All Day I Dream. The label supports artists such as Yokoo, Lost Desert, Beduin, Gorje and Izhevski, Hoj and many others.
