LEE BURRIDGE



Author Christian Dori | Date 13/07/2018

Where are you from?

Nowadays London. Before that a tiny village of 50 people in the South West of England. 

 

Please tell us when you approached the music scene and how has been your artistic evolution since then?

I first stepped behind the decks in 1983. I went from mobile DJ playing at weddings and birthdays, to local club DJ, to traveling around the region playing in clubs. Then I got a full time DJ career in Hong Kong playing seven hours a night in a bar, to helping start the Hong Kong club scene, to starting the full moon parties on the beach in Thailand, to coming back to the UK and being a part of Tyrant in the early 2000’s, to every club all over the world at night to then, most recently, starting All Day I Dream which is a daytime event playing melodic music that, at the time, no one was really doing. Oh, and sort of diverting the existing popular sound out at Burning Man festival. All the while just playing the music I love and believe in. I’ve been busy the past thirty five years. 

 

All Day I Dream of The White Jewel is your Ibiza residency at Blue Marlin. How did this collaboration started?

We are really particular about the kind of space we do my party in. Blue Marlin has nature, the ocean, good sound, blue skies and the ability to party outdoors which is all too rare these days in Ibiza. A match made in heaven. 

 

What will the parties be about and what are your expectations for the summer?

Dreamy, beautiful house music with infectious grooves. People not being able to stop smiling. Building a lovely community of ‘dreamers’ that come back each event while also welcoming all those on a short visit to be a part of it. The party runs through the day and gently dips its toe into dusk. Then it’s over and you wish it wasn’t. My expectations are that people will get to know some music that only we play. That these become songs they love and that the musical rollercoaster that’s played through the day takes them on a journey. They close their eyes. They feel the love. Both in the music and the crowd. 

 

What made you think that Blue Marlin was the right location?

As I already said, the nature, the ocean, the blue sky, the ability to play music outdoors. If you’d like me to add. They also have great food. The staff and managers are really lovely. The drinks taste good. 

 

The party has also gone on tour, with showcases around the world. What locations are you visiting?

Do you ever get tired of travelling? The past ten days we had events in Blue Marlin, Barcelona at Off Sonar, New York, Istanbul, Reykjavik, Mykonos, San Francisco and Los Angeles. It’s a busy summer. I love traveling. What a gift. How can you ever complain?

 

After such a long career what do you think are the ingredients for a big success, especially nowadays?

Are you calling me old? OK, maybe I am knocking on a bit. To be successful (no guarantees by the way) you either have to sell your soul and just do what’s popular or, my favourite, truly look inside yourself and play from the heart. The music you truly love. It’s an honest artistic expression then. Obviously, these days, social media is important (boring!) and not being too impatient. Do whatever it takes to get your foot in the door. Unless of course it’s something seedy and gross. Don’t do that. 

 

What is for you the most challenging part of your job?

Getting up after an hour sleep to go to an ill equipped regional airport that only has meat sandwiches. 

 

What artist would we be surprised to find on your personal playlist?

Chaka Khan or the Pointer Sisters. 

 

Do you have a favourite hobby outside music?

I love to cook and I am a big fan of going to the cinema. 

 

Relationship with Ibiza.

Divorced nine times. 

 

Future projects?

My album with Lost Desert. 

 

And finally, are you Night or Day?

Day. Until the sun goes down of course.
