One of NYC's most legendary DJs, Larry Tee, created the term 'ELECTROCLASH' for his historic festivals of the same name, started the party DISCO 2000 that was featured in the movie 'Party Monster", DJ'ed alongside Larry Levan, and has just been certified gold with his new single 'Licky' which features Princess Superstar, Santigold, and Top 40 pop star Shontelle. His Electroclash Festivals and his club nights in Brooklyn featured the Scissor Sisters, Felix Da Housecat, 2 Many DJs, Tiga, Peaches, and James Murphy from LCD Soundsystem.
Larry has also been on fire of late as a remixer, putting his go-to touch on smashes by La Roux, Crookers feat. Róisín Murphy, Lady Gaga, Kele, and Major Lazer. Touring his new album 'CLUB BADD' out worldwide on ULTRA, he has been supported by DJs like Justice, Erol Alkan, Crookers, Pete Tong, Jesse Rose, David Guetta, MSTRKRFT, and the songs have been remixed for an upcoming collection CLUB BADDER by Afrojack, Sébastien Léger, Hervé, Bart B More, Kris Menace, and Steve Aoki to name a few.
But Tee's experience goes back further to the 80s when he lived in Atlanta and became friends friends with Athens' stars Michael Stipe from REM and the B-52's. In the 90s he wrote the Billboard Magazine #1 Dance song of 1992 by RuPaul (now a TV star in the USA), DJ'ed with Frankie Knuckles, David Morales and Danny Tenaglia at the Roxy, Palladium, and Love Machine, started the legendary Disco 2000 party at Limelight (which was the first club to feature techno on the main floor in the States), and launched Twilo Fridays which introduced Sasha & Digweed and Carl Cox to the big room clubs in NYC. In the 00s he launched Electroclash and put out 3 genre-defining albums that featured many of his own songs, and he helped launch the electro craze with his festivals in NYC and Europe. His debut album, Club Badd, has been embraced by clubbers around the world, and he is touring non-stop before his next album of collaborations comes out in 2011. His latest single "Lets Make Nasty," with its Afrojack remix, spent 5 weeks at #1 on Beatport earlier this year.
