I was honored to be asked to do a personal interview about my musical history and how I climbed the music industry ladder over the years. We go right back to 1989 when I first started DJing and was trying to figure out how to make the music I wanted to hear. Much respect to Andy Barton, the main man behind the mighty Bass Agenda Radio Show and Record Label.
High quality recordings from the Back to 92 DJ streams by Lee Coombs. Six hours of pure nostalgia from one of the golden ages of dance music. All music played and mixed on vinyl from years 1991 – 1994. Available exclusively on the Thrust Recordings Bandcamp page.
I am very excited to be on this weeks edition of the Armory Podcast.
This mix was recorded live at Burning Man on Monday Night at the mighty Opulent Temple!
There’s a new wave of Breaks coming through right now and this is a small selection of killer tracks that I’m feeling. Look out for a preview of some new Lee Coombs and Kostas G tracks plus a special new remix from The Freakazoids…

Here is my set from ‘The Haunting’ Halloween party in Denver last month. It was an awesome night to say the least. I played 2 sets, one in the main room and then an after hours session in the top room for all the heads that stayed until the end. Big thanks to The Fantastic Hosts for a night i will remember for a long time 🙂
This months mix is packed full of Main Room Electro Belters. The kind of tracks that i would play when i’m headlining a main room or on a big festival stage. These tracks are tried and tested all over the world with huge results. I hope you enjoy listening to this mix as much as i have making it 🙂

“Great to hear these jems again” Crystal Method
“I always liked a bit of Tribal Tension” Plump DJs
“Classics everybody should own and now they sound like brand new releases again!”
A retrospective look at some of Lee Coombs and Thrusts finest moments from as far back as 1997, including the underground Breaks Classic Thrust 1 (the 1st Thrust release). These are some of the tracks that have defined a generation of Tech Funk Clubbers and DJs alike and is also the reason Lee Coombs has gone on to consistently write groundbreaking artist albums and remix some of the biggest acts in the World. These tunes have been hammered with huge results in every great Club across the planet by the Residents who know and love their crowds along with the International Superstar DJ’s that drop in every week.
Not happy with the production techniques of yesterday Lee has painstakingly remixed; re mastered (by Uberzone) or made completely new versions of these Classic tracks making them sound as fresh as when they were first released. Thrust 1 and Thrust 2 have never been available as digital downloads and have been long since deleted as vinyl releases, also there is a brand new version of The Lee Coombs and The Drumattic Twins Remix of Thrust 1 which is currently blowing up Lee’s Dance Floors. Killer underground tunes from D Ramirez, Meat Katie and Paranoid Jack have all been re mastered and there are brand new and fully unreleased tracks by Oscar Goldman (of Thrust 2 fame) and Lee Coombs with the unreleased bomb Thrust 4.

The Freakazoids press release : The legendary ‘Freakazoids’ return to the 808 to bring back their own slice of Electro Funk. ‘The Freakazoids’ is the Brainchild of Lee Coombs, Nick Slater and Lanx (later two both of Shades of Rhythm fame) who came together through their love of Old Skool Electro Funk and Hip Hop and released a string of underground records in the late Nineties. After a ten year break and working on other projects the boys have decided to collaborate again and bring back the Funk. The new single will be released on Thrust Recordings mid Jan 2012.

December Back to mine mixtape
Download link – http://leecoombs.podomatic.com/entry/2011-12-21T12_18_10-08_00
How about a little ‘Back to mine’ style mix to play while your eating your Turkey? I started looking at my old vinyl and thought it would make a nice end to the year if i put together a chill mix. To me it’s so much more fun looking through my vinyl, searching out tracks to play, instead of on the computer. We truly lost something when vinyl became less popular. Sob..sob…anyway here is a mix done the Old Skool way, not even any beat mixing. Just the tunes! Hope your all having a great time over the holidays!! Enjoy ;0) x
