ABOUT THE ARTISTS:
DJ LEE is a legendary drum and bass dj, representing the Metalheadz crew. Lees involvement and history in the UKs underground dance scene dates way back to the late 80s. Since then, Lee has become a steady name on the circuit, known for his bangin\’ DJ sets as well as his involvement in Timeless, Vinyl Distribution and Atlas Recordings fame.
Starting off as a resident at the legendary Brunel Rooms in Swindon, Lee played alongside DJs such as Doc Scott, Fabio, Grooverider and LTJ Bukem. His impression there was so great that other bookings began to roll in from all over the country. In 94 Danny Bukem alongside Leo Roche and Sarah Sandy started the groundbreaking night Speed at Sohos Mars club. Along with Fabio they started the first Drum n Bass night in Londons West End with a more mature music policy. They needed a resident that would fit in with the futuristic sounds of Bukem and Fabio along with Doc Scott and Kemistry & Storm. Lee was made resident at what has become such a pivotal event In Drum N Bass history. Lee was also made resident at the legendary MetalHeadz Sunday Sessions by Head Honcho Goldie and still plays for them to this day!
