DJ Lee is not just a veteran of the drum ‘n’ bass genre, he has played an integral role in its progression for nearly two decades. Cutting his teeth hanging out with LTJ Bukem and Fabio, he went on to produce records on revered labels Metalheadz and 31 Records, as well as working for the venerable Vinyl Distribution outfit during the sound’s most notable era. His DJ style blends liquid funk with dancefloor pressure, priming crowds for drops and breakdowns with each revolution. This garnered Lee spots at regular events like Bukem’s “Speed” and Goldie’s “Metalheadz Sunday Sessions.” Lee brings the same dedication and versatility to Chicago’s Cafe Lura as he does around the globe, peppering his sets with exciting new tunes.
