// Lee Webster //

Lee Webster has been hammering the nudisco sound outta Barcelona for a few years now. He’s a prolific producer and remixer who has a firm grasp on funk, disco, and rap musics’ contribution to today’s dance music sound. We also like his cheeky wit and double entendre approach to his art, people who take them too seriously are always a dreadful bore. Not to worry with Lee as he lays down a mix focused on killer underground midtempo sounds. Hope to have a tracklisting soon. – Sean-Michael Yoder

// Bio //

Lee grew up at around the same time that the Garage scene was growing in popularity among the underground heads. Pirate Radio shows broadcast bouncy deep House music from the US and mixed it with the UK´s own unique take on the genre…

“I used to get on the underground train to cross London in the evening so I could pick up the pirate radio stations across town. It was my first proper exposure to good House music and remains a constant inspiration, it was edgy and sexy at the same time; something I try to achieve in my own productions…”

Lee started to become familiar with artists such as Kerri Chandler, Danny J Lewis, Todd Edwards and Larry Levan and as his interest grew in House music, he began to research the labels and history behind the House movement. He became intentionaly lost in a sea of pulsing beats, swimming his way through Detroit kick drums and Chicago synths.

Re-locating to Barcelona led Lee to become exposed to people and nights that would eventually shape his tastes even further, this time delving into Disco, Balearic and early Progressive. He became fascinated with peoples old records, records that usually followed with a story. It was at this point that the styles began to fuse in his productions, heavily Garage influenced Jackin House on one hand and deep Disco Funk on the other, his style was born: A marriage of Dope & Deep.

“People ask me how I can make House music one day and, Hip-hop the other, and remain true to what I´m doing. For me, they are very closely connected, and I think to make good music you have to know the roots of where it came from to really understand the feelings behind it…”
