I did an in-depth interview with Iconic Underground Magazine about Bandcamp, and how it has positively changed the way some labels and artists are selling their products now.
Some great info in here…
One of my latest House Music productions is out now on my old friends label, Mark Pember’s (Meat Katie) Lowering The Tone.
It was a no brainer to contribute an original electro track to this amazing compilation album on Bass Agenda Recordings. A charity album raising money for the NHS and Médecins Sans Frontières.
The international electro and techno producer community has come together to raise money for two charities doing vital health work during the Covid-19 crisis – NHS Charities Together and Médecins Sans Frontières.
The project began in April this year. The resulting release is an essential compendium of techno and electro featuring some of the most respected creators working in the genre with a total of 142 tracks.

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.

‘Kaleidoscope’ the brand new artist album by Lee Coombs and Kostas G is finally here. This dynamic production duo first met when Kostas entered one of Lee’s remix competitions. The rest is history and they have now gone on to create many tracks and remixes, ripping up dance floors and festivals from Europe to Australia to the Far East to Miami and back to Burning Man…
Lee started the year with his ‘Lilly in the Sky’ release on Lot49, which is now one of the biggest selling Breaks tracks of 2014. Not a bad start and things are only just getting warmed up.
Kaleidoscope is a musical journey into the minds of Lee Coombs and Kostas G featuring all things Deep and Techy, a soundscape of Breaks, House and blissed out Down tempo moments designed to move your body and soul.
“We wanted to make an Electronic album that you can really listen to from start to finish and lose yourself in completely, a non pretentious music lovers experience that also rocks the Dancefloor”

I am VERY excited to tell you about two massive remixes of my last single. If you like Electro, Breaks or anything Tech Funk then dont miss this…
The Freakazoids remix is pure Electro and all about the Bassline. New kid on the block Kostas G turns in a stomping mix sitting somewhere between Tech House and Breaks. We have excellent support already on this single and it is released exclusively on Bandcamp.

“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.
