BASS: Lee Coombs drops critically acclaimed 'Lot 49' mix CD
Edited Press Release

Lee Coombs has been at the forefront of the electronic music scene for the better part of 15 years. He's released groundbreaking mix CDs, remixed the world's most acclaimed artists and knocked out dancefloor destroying productions considered classics years after their release. While often associated with the Breaks genre, this labeling does not begin to tell the entire story. A boundary-less approach is truly Coombs' trademark and he's famous for mixing up breaks, house, electro, techno and acid with dexterous assurance. Prime example: "Lot49 Presents: Lee Coombs."

For this compilation, Coombs has pulled out all the stops, digging deep into a treasure trove of breaks, house and techno and pulling out pure gold. Opening with the rocking drums and simple catchy riff of Coombs & DJ Icey's "Duo Drive The Ride," the mix shifts effortlessly through an electronic landscape taking in earth shuddering basslines, deep brooding grooves and a blatant disregard to genre boundaries.

Here, offerings from Tiga's Turbo label sit alongside productions from German wunderkind Oliver Huntemann and rough breaks and bass from Dopamine rub shoulders with the house sound of Guy Gerber. Among the gems is an unreleased Meat Katie remix of Alloy Mental and the much sought after "No Hits" from Black Mountain vs UNKLE.

Lot49 Presents: Lee Coombs is just one of several new releases this Producer/Remixer/DJ has planned for the next few months. In October, top breaks label Fingerlickin' Records released Coombs' "The Future Sound of Retro 2008 remixes" and include the track on it's 10-year anniversary compilation. In November, Lot49 Records is issuing Lee Coombs feat Katherine Ellis "Control." The package is set to feature three remixes and will be available in both vinyl and digital formats.

Looking toward 2009, Coombs looks to offer his collaboration with Uberzone entitled "Right Now" and plans on the release of his latest original artist CD. While still dancefloor focused, Coombs views this album as his most ambitious project yet. It will feature a range of tempo from 100 to 128 bpm and collaborations with the likes of Meat Katie, Seasunz, Katherine Ellis and Uberzone, among others.

Lot49 Presents: Lee Coombs is released in North America on November 11. Click here for more more information about Lee Coombs and to hear his music.
