DJ Ash Lee
Selector extraordinaire/Provocateur/Cowbell connoisseur...
Melbourne’s DJ Ash Lee has been accused of a great many things in close to 15 years manning the wheels of, erm, well they used to be steel but they’re more kinda plasticky now...
In the words of the great jock’s proud mum (and biggest fan)…
“call out Ash’s outrageous achievements, professionalism, versatility, international support, radio host, band support, busy Zumba schedule and all that...Make sure you mention his pet goat that ate his neighbours clothesline, the swarm of bees that terrorise him on his weekly paper route and his coop of racing pigeons that keep getting lost”
Throw in support slots for Deadmau5, Derrick Carter, Rico Tubbs, Anthony Pappa, D Ramirez, Deekline, Chris Fortier, Audiojack, Magik Johnson, Jamie Liddell, Ali B, Kid Dub, Kompakt Records blah blah blah – you get the gist.
Club wise Ash has held down residencies and regular guest spots at all the clubs you can’t get into plus larger events including Future Music Festival, Kiss My Grass, Good Vibes After Party, Notting Hill Carnival (UK), and way more than your mum should know you’ve been blowing your pocket money on.
Currently moonlighting with DJ Pakatak under the 99 PRBLMZ moniker the remixes and original productions are starting to pile up along with some massive DJ sets at some of Melbourne's high profile establishments.
Genres? Want a party funk set to get your dance on? Too easy. How about a jackin’ vibe to warm up the crowd? C’mon now, is that all you got? What about a slammin' Deep House set? Techno? Cosmic-Disco? Old school Hip-Hop? Low Slung Rockabilly Rave? How about all of this in the one set?! Yep, he’s got it covered.
Somehow amongst all this party rockin’ Ash has fit in duties as radio host on both Street FM and Kiss FM. Plus, with a lifetime of music knowledge at his disposal he has lent his writing skills to leading dance music magazines and websites, interviewing touring artists, writing over-opinionated features, and critiquing new release albums. Don’t ask how he squeezes so much in.
Still not impressed? Well you would be if you knew that on top of all of this, Ash has built a solid rep as one of Melbourne’s most in-demand corporate event DJs, with clients such as NAB, Vodafone, Mooks, Stussy, Mossimo, Heinz, Paul Frank, Cambridge Fashion House, Trimapee, AG, Dhini, White Suede, Melbourne Fashion week and more.
So yeah, Ash’s resume is stacked with goodness. And with his original productions and remixes slated for release in the not-too-distant future, he’s only just beginning.
