Our guest mix series sessions are required to be assembled specifically and exclusively for About To Blow. This is fundamentally because we have contacted the artist in question specifically because we’re feeling that artist whether it be from a live set we’ve experienced or due to a track that may have caught our attention. In Lee Walker’s instance, it’s not just ourselves who were taken a back by his blockbuster Garage edit of DJ Deeon’s ‘Freak Like Me’, but the dance music industry the world over.
Every year a track emerges that propels it’s relatively unknown curator into the history books, and with the likes of Marco Carola, Dixon, AME and Loco Dice all hammering his four-to-the-floor club stomper it’s elevated the DJ-producer’s status tenfold, with the man from Middlesbrough more than earning his title as one of 2015’s ‘breakout stars’.
With a succession of recent releases on Love Not Money Records as well as remixes for South Royston not to mention being charted on most of the year’s best of 2015 compilations, it’s only right we see out the year with a mix from one of it’s biggest successes. This finely crafted session is typical of what we’ve come to expect from Lee over recent times, as it moves from the deep and weighty, to tough and techy, through to soulful and funky, exhibiting his knack of drawing the listener in & moving them through the motions to great effect.
We asked Lee to introduce the mix for us, and tell us a bit about what to expect:
“Well in all honesty I just played music I liked and made it work. I wanted to start off reasonably deep and build up, giving it a good range and as much of a journey I could create in 45 minutes.
Some lovely deeper tunes, some bangers, some of my own stuff, something for everyone.”
