Mix of the Week – Lee Burridge live at Robot Heart (Burning Man 2022)

Lee Burridge wrote a biography about himself: 

“I’ve been a DJ since December 26th 1984 when I started a mobile disco for weddings, birthday parties and the like. 

I played lots of pop music including Depeche Mode and The Pet Shop Boys until discovering house music in the late 80′s. 

I went to a lot of parties in fields and clubs and fell in love with dance music (and a voodoo woman named Phyllis).

I moved from the UK to Hong Kong in 1991 (which isn’t in Japan, as lots of journalists seem to think). (I like using parenthesis). 

I helped build up a crazy underground scene in HK between 1991-97 as no one was playing dance music there. 

I also spent a lot of time from 1992 onwards playing at the full moon parties in Thailand as no one was playing records there either. 

I moved back to the UK in 1997 and teamed up with Craig Richards and Sasha to play at the Tyrant parties in London and Nottingham. 

I slept on a trolley in Craig’s studio for a while but eventually got a real bed. I released two super Tyrant mix CDs with Craig. 

I have also released four other mix CDs including two for Global Underground and one for Balance which I love. 

I play many, many crazy clubs all over the world each year and usually end up DJing in someone’s living room or garden (weather permitting). 

I play at festivals such as Coachella, Love Parade, Exit, Creamfields, Notting Hill Carnival and enjoy camping.

I often get asked by journalists to describe what type of music I play. I don’t know is the answer. 

I launched my 365 project in June 2005. It was really fun and unbelievably interesting.Why don’t you ask me about it. 

I mostly play records but sometimes play CDs. 

I don’t take my computer clubbing. 

I like making records with silly titles. 

I don’t ever seem to get round to releasing them though. 

I can’t play the piano. I can play the triangle. 

I have been in the DJ mag poll at number 10, 27, 31, 56, 76 and 88 but still feel exactly the same. 

I was number ten on Resident Advisors top 100 DJ’s in 2008 but failed to turn up in DJ mags one.  

I have lied once (or was it twice?) in this biography. 

I love you.”
