PODCAST | LEE WEBSTER for Pornoparaprincipiantes

Lee Webster001Os presentamos la nueva mixtape para Pornoparaprincipiantes, esta vez, de la mano de Lee Webster aka Mr. Hi-Rize, Dj y productor establecido en Barcelona. Os ofrecemos un viaje de a través de sonidos deep disco y house, en la que podrás encontrar temas de Lee, algunos de ellos todavía sin editar.

Para que le conozcas un poco más, Lee creció musicalmente en Inglaterra, en el momento en que la escena garaje (house) empezó a hacerse visible. “Solía salir para pillar el metro por las noches y escuchar emisoras piratas de Londres, dónde el deep house norteamericano se fundía con la contrapartida británica de este. Ese fue mi primer acercamiento al house de verdad, que ha sido para mí una inspiración constante. Recuerdo con mucho cariño esas vibraciones sexys. De hecho, este es el rollo que intento darle a mis producciones” De está manera, Lee se familiarizó con artistas de la talla de Kerri Chandler, Danny J Lewis, Todd Edwards y Larry Levan, investigando en los orígenes de su género favorito, buceando a través de los kick drums con olor a Motor City y sintes que nos recuerdan a la Ciudad del viento.

Una vez establecido en Barcelona, su contacto con la noche de la Ciudad Condal moldeó su gusto musical, expandiéndose hacia el disco, sonidos baleáricos y a los primeros pasos del progressive. Le fascinan los vinilos viejos con historia detrás. Todas esas influencias empezaron a cristalizarse en sus temas. Por un lado, Jackin house garajero, y deep house funkarra por otro. El estilo de Lee es pues, un matrimonio entre deep y dope . “La gente me pregunta cómo puedo hacer temas que suenen house y otro día hip-hop manteniendo cierta autenticidad en lo que hago. Para mí, están profundamente conectados. Creo que es muy importante conocer la raíces de lo que haces para entender realmente todo el feeling que hay detrás de ello”

We would like to introduce to you a brand new Pornoparaprincipiantes’ mixtape. This time, manufactured by Lee Webster aka Mr. Hi-Rize, a young and really talented producer and Dj based in Barcelona. We offer you a trip under the deep waters of house and disco, which includes a couple of Lee’s unreleased tracks.

About our man, Lee grew up at around the same time that the Garage scene was growing in popularity among the underground heads.  Pirate Radio shows broadcast bouncy deep House music from the US and mixed it with the UK´s own unique take on the genre… “I used to get on the underground train to cross London in the evening so I could pick up the pirate radio stations across town.  It was my first proper exposure to good House music and remains a constant inspiration, it was edgy and sexy at the same time; something I try to achieve in my own productions…” Lee started to become familiar with artists such as Kerri Chandler, Danny J Lewis, Todd Edwards and Larry Levan and as his interest grew in House music, he began to research the labels and history behind the House movement. He became intentionaly lost in a sea of pulsing beats, swimming his way through Detroit kick drums and Chicago synths.

Re-locating to Barcelona led Lee to become exposed to people and nights that would eventually shape his tastes even further, this time delving into Disco, Balearic and early Progressive.  He became fascinated with peoples old records, records that usually followed with a story.  It was at this point that the styles began to fuse in his productions, heavily Garage influenced Jackin House on one hand and deep Disco Funk on the other, his style was born: A marriage of Dope & Deep.  “People ask me how I can make House music one day and, Hip-hop the other, and remain true to what I´m doing.  For me, they are very closely connected, and I think to make good music you have to know the roots of where it came from to really understand the feelings behind it…”

Now, let the music do the talking!
