Lee Burridge

Lee Burridge

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.

Mall Grab

Mall Grab

25-year-old Mall Grab is breaking all kinds of moulds on his rapid rise to recognition on the world stage.  Working from the confines of his decidedly un-electronic hometown of Newcastle, NSW, he is a clear example of the connective power of the Internet. Proof that the web does  have the ability get real talent noticed.
 
His sound has been described as ‘mildly celestial “hella stoned” introspections that pay homage to old  Three 6 Mafia mixtapes as much as more recent astral experiences in house and techno.’  Inverted Audio says that ‘Mall Grab has steadily grown into a surefire purveyor of his leg-stretching, house and techno that manages to reach thousands of fans worldwide.’ With support from artists like George Fitzgerald and Four Tet, it seems like the best is still yet to come.

 

Marvin & Guy

Marvin & Guy

The Marvin & Guy project was born under the shadow of a palm tree while a flamingo listened to tropical music, way back in 2011. The duo’s first release was an EP with the Japanese label Let’s Get Lost, the naughty child in the expansive Mule Musiq label family.

The A Side, a re-edit of the 1981 disco song Town by Minako Yoshida, saw such success that LGL invited the boys back for two more records the following year, numbers 19 and 22. The honchos at Mule quickly knew they were on to something special and welcomed Marvin and Guy back yet again to remix Eddie C’s La Palette, a track taken from the slo-mo king’s last LP. This time they were elevated to the Endless Flight label.

Waaaay across on the other side of the world the (based) pair began to gain the attention of decadent New Yorkers, adding a fifth release to their growing discography, with Jacques Renault’s On The Prowl Records. In 2013 they took things in house and commenced a mission to create their own super exclusive eponymous 12 inch label. UWIH came first, a dark, hypnotic Black Sabbath edit, resonating with DJs, fans and critics alike. Soon after came the equally well loved Making Love EP.

Trip forward to February 2015 and Dance Abilities on L.A. based label Young Adults was released. This quickly gained support from DJs who like their dance music served raw, emotive and song-like, think heavyweight division fighters like Pachanga Boys, Ivan Smagghe, Roman Flügel, DJ Tennis and Jennifer Cardini. With this in mind it was only a matter of time before the phone rang and it was John Talabot on the line. Egoísta soon arrived on Hivern Discs and to put it simply was a hit in every kind of club all around the world.
