Burridge set to play around the world
Lee Burridge might have the sweetest gig in music. Yes, his popularity has exploded in recent years thanks to affiliation with Burning Man festival, his own record label and more.
Yet despite attending and playing at Burning Man since 2006 Burridge's 'cult following' is thanks in large part to his continued efforts and desire to do his own thing. That would mean bringing a totally different sound to an audience than what they would hear from many other artists at many other venues and festivals.
With a career now three decades on, Burridge is still going strong with a record label to his name and has an amazing ability to get the crowd moving from one continent to another. On March 6, 2015 he played Iris Yas Island's Iris Sundown in the capital city of Abu Dhabi. It's just one of the many gigs he has booked through the spring, with upcoming shows in North America, South America, the Middle East and Europe.
Want to know where you can catch Burridge in the coming months? He's playing Sound in Los Angeles (March 20), Wall at the W Hotel in Miami (March 23), Baum in Bogota, Columbia (March 28), Republik in Waterford, Ireland (April 18), and Indigo in Istanbul, Turkey (April 24).
Burridge is also booked to play the Sunwaves Festival in Mamaia, Romania on May 2. Make sure to check him out as he continues to set the vibe with a laid-back set of underground grooves around the world.
About Lee Burridge
Lee Burridge has often been asked to describe the music he plays. Like most DJs, he's more likely to narrow down the answer to describe adjectives rather than genres, and in the most obvious sense, he'd lean heavily toward music that moves him as much as it moves his audience.
It's hard to believe that Buridge, who is a global phenom of the booth, actually got his start in the countryside of Southwest England and played everything from birthdays to funerals just to be heard. Attending his first outdoor raves around London's M25 motorway fueled his passion even more, and he started to organize club and beach events, handing out mixtapes along the way to anyone and everyone who would listen to them.
Credited as the man who orchestrated the rise of Hong Kong's (once non-existent) underground dance scene, Burridge took those early successes to Haadrin, Thailand and organized 'full moon' parties that began as nothing more drum circles on the beach and a DJ playing tapes in one of the bars. The gatherings ultimately grew to thousands of people each month, and Haadrin would go on to become a virtual mecca for clubbers.
Today Burridge lives I New York, but continues to play at clubs and festivals across the globe. He is managed by Joel Zimmerman of the famed William Morris Agency, and has become known for concept parties at Burning Man and other locations. The parties, which have extended to San Francisco, were called "Get Weird," and Burridge has carried it to many other cities.
In 2011, Burridge began a new record label, "All Day I Dream," dedicated to melodic, dreamy house and techno music. He also hosts outdoor daytime "All Day I Dream" parties on both the east and west coasts.
