We will be celebrating the second net release to come from the Tek-Know studio and we got someone special to help us do it.
Lee Curtiss [Wolf + Lamb | Dumb Unit | Mothership | Kalamari | Esperanza : Berlin/Detroit]
A Western Michigan native and long-time Detroit resident, Lee Curtiss has been forging his uniquely backwoods, yet avant-garde and primal brand of deep and twisted dance music since the late 1990’s. A constantly changing and ever-eager student to his craft, Lee’s finger has been pressed upon, if not thrust into, the throbbing aorta of underground dance music for quite some time – even if his production skills and brain-demolishing live PA have only recently begun to garner the attention of techno and house music’s elite. Growing up between the two poles of Chicago and Detroit organized Lee’s approach to production squarely between the grooving, deep house sounds of artists like Derrick Carter, and the mind freaking work of techno producers such as Ricardo Villalobos, Zip (aka Dimbiman), Matthew Dear and Richie Hawtin. Over the past year Lee has begun to tour extensively in America and Europe, notoriously adhering to a 'fuck trends, fuck dance music, and fuck me' approach to producing and performing that only the strongest of stomachs and most iron-clad of minds can withstand. His music’s dark, sexy, and uncompromising singularity have earned him coveted performance slots at the 2007 DEMF and Mutek festivals, preludes to his upcoming summer move to Europe and a new commitment to touring and producing. Curtiss was recently named by Matthew Dear as one of they key figures of emerging talent in URB magazine’s next 100, but Lee would rather you quit reading this bio and either book him, buy his record, or come see him melt you and your friends faces at a club near you.
