Lee Coombs - 'Lilly in th Sky' still in the Beatport Top 10!

I just want to send out a HUGE thanks to everyone that has supported my latest single ‘Lilly in the Sky’. We released it just before Christmas and it has held its position in the Top 10 of the Beatport Breaks Chart ever since. It peaked at No 2 and stayed there for a few weeks amongst tough competition.
I am currently writing a follow up single and will be previewing that very soon. Stay tuned!
Big Love to all

New Lee Coombs Monthly DJ Residency at Familia, Project One, San Francisco

I am very excited to let you all know about my new monthly residency in San Francisco.
Hope to see you all there.

Project One Press release –
Project One Gallery, a lounge and art gallery in San Francisco, is pleased to announce an exciting musical collaboration with internationally acclaimed DJ Lee Coombs. P1 and Coombs are launching a new monthly event: 鈥淔amilia,鈥 featuring Coombs as P1鈥檚 new resident DJ along with rotating special guest DJs.

鈥淚鈥檓 very excited about selecting music to play for Familia,鈥 said Coombs, who is looking forward to using this opportunity to build 鈥渕ore eclectic sets,鈥 which will include 鈥渁ll the newest tech funk, acid house, breaks, and electro, mixed with the coldest of classics.鈥

Coombs will be joined by special guest 脺berzone for the first 鈥淔amilia鈥 on May 19th. 脺berzone, also known as Q, also known as Timothy Wiles, is a California native known for his supremely danceable and unique electro beats. Wiles exploded onto the scene in the late 1990s, when he produced a number of hit singles, including 鈥淏otz,鈥 鈥淭he Freaks,鈥 and 鈥2Kool4Skool鈥 for City of Angels. Most recently, he mixed VCMG鈥檚 Ssss, a collaboration between Vince Clarke and Martin L. Gore of Depeche Mode, and remixed Erasure鈥檚 鈥淎 Whole Lotta Love Gone Riot鈥 for their 鈥淔ill Us With Fire鈥 single.

British-born Lee Coombs has been DJing since 1989, when he got his start at acid house parties in London and Cambridge. He went on to run several of his own labels and collaborate with some of the most respected artists and producers in his field, combining breaks, house, electro, techno, and acid to create groundbreaking mixes in his own signature style. Coombs is a talented and innovative fan-favorite around the world, whether he鈥檚 releasing music through his own Thrust Recordings or as part of the Lot49 team, or mesmerizing massive audiences filling dance floors from Australia to Burning Man.

Coombs is thrilled to begin making regular appearances at P1, calling the gallery/lounge 鈥渢he perfect place for my new monthly residency.鈥 Coombs elaborated, saying, 鈥淭he venue is perfect, the sound system is on point, and the layout of the room keeps the vibe intimate but still feeling like we have space. I had been looking in SF for somewhere to do this for a while, and was blown away by how comfortably we tore the roof off the place last time I played. Congratulations to Steve and Brooke on building such a great venue! I really feel like we are about to build something very special at Project One. I can鈥檛 wait to see you all there!鈥

P1 is a 3200 square foot converted warehouse located in the design district of San Francisco, featuring a state of the art sound system and full bar. P1 hosts both up-and-coming and globally recognized DJs as well as showcasing the work of local and international contemporary artists in their gallery space.

Lee’s Blog – I love Orbital

I had the most wonderful surprise last night. When i got in dance music many moons ago i think the first really big record that gripped me was Orbital – Chime. Nothing sounded like it at the time and it was one of the most awesome and exciting records to ever be released i think. Years later i would make a great friend called Phil Hartnoll (one half of Orbital) and last night he sent me their new album with a message saying i am the first person he has sent it to. Now when i first heard Chime i never even thought i would ever get to meet anyone like Orbital or Phil. You see dreams do come true. Follow your heart and you will find them. Big love to Phil and Thank You x

BTW the new album is classic Orbital, go buy it!
