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.

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.

Mefjus ft. Maksim MC

Based out of Linz, north Austria, Martin Schober is a singular protagonist at the forefront of this beguiling game we call drum & bass. He likes hip-hop, skateboarding, schnitzel, Leibniz biscuits and long walks in the sunset, but he’s most respected for how he traipses across electronic music’s wildest terrains with total boundary abandonment… And is regarded as a leading influential new-gen figure in the genre.

From his agenda-setting halftime twist of ‘Sunday Crunk’ to his rolling, emotional collabo cameo on Camo & Krooked’s acclaimed album ‘Mosaik’. From his entrance into the Fabriclive mix hall of fame with a mix album comprising entirely of his own productions (‘Fabriclive 95’) to his Drum&BassArena Award-winning debut album ‘Emulation’, Mefjus’s signature sound has been felt across the furthest expanses of the genre since he emerged in the early 2010s. Now working closely with Vision – the label run by kindred studio spirits Noisia – Mefjus continues to fine-tune his musical syntax, technical dexterity, eye for detail and deft groove sensibilities. The latest chapter to savour this on-going flux of development is his second album ‘Manifest’.

Released April 2018, ‘Manifest’ is the sound of Mefjus 2.0. After several years in the studio wilderness, exploring the dark science of song structure, musicality and textural contrasts, ‘Manifest’ captures a new mindset for Mefjus. Raw, energetic, playful and subversive, ‘Manifest’ is the most personal, diverse and daring body of work to date.
