Lee Holman (Kawl Recordings, Bastardo Electrico)
An uncompromising underground ethos, a taste maker and with a penchant of following his own groove, Lee Holman has garnered support from a host of Techno’s brightest names.
Performing in clubs since the late nineties, he has travelled throughout Europe compounding a reputation for his unique vision on Techno. Playing a fusion of deep, raw and energetic electronics, his sound creates a myriad of tension, constructing the perfect combination of musicality for club appearances. Performances both as a live act and as a DJ have unlocked opportunities to share hallowed ground with Techno’s elite, appearing in prestigious underground venues such as Corsica Studios London, 8Bahn Arnhem and Tresor Berlin.
Production has earned him international recognition, leaving his mark building a reputation for consistency, originality and delivering his dynamic sound on both cutting edge and classic Techno Labels. Generating consistent support, he has remixed for high profile artists such as Aubrey and Gary Beck and has himself been remixed by leading Techno mainstays ranging from Orlando Voorn to Mike Dehnert.
Founding the Kawl Imprint, the label’s aim was to provide diversity in Techno and its output encapsulated the entire spectrum of the genre. This formula was immediately picked up on and amounted to rave reviews on Resident Advisor and impressive charts and plays by leading connoisseurs of the underground.
This year, his releases have been frequent and in demand. Furthermore, his production skills have been confirmed for Mosaic Split, Solid Groove, Children of Tomorrow, Berlin label Graphene and more, adding to an already excellent discography.
With an ever expanding release schedule, combining collaborations, remixes and an imminent new label project, Lee Holman promises to be unrelenting in his definition of essential timeless Techno.”
