As 2016 drew to a conclusion, we headed to the infamous Egg nightclub in London to celebrate the very best of the year’s UK electronic music talent at the DJ Mag Best of British awards. Winners on the night included Alan Fitzpatrick, who was awarded Best Track for ‘We Do What We Want’, together with Lee Walker who secured Best Remix for his massive take on ‘Freak Like Me’. The legendary DJ EZ was also crowned Best DJ of 2016, treating partygoers to a special set on the night to celebrate his award.
After the ceremony we got a chance to sit down with DJ/Producer Lee Walker, winner of the Best Remix Award, for an exclusive interview. Lee gave his advice to aspiring Producers/DJs, discussed his journey from the bedroom to the studio and the rise of his breakthrough track ‘Freak Like Me’. We heard who he would like to collaborate with and his top plugins to produce with. We also got to hear about some of Lee’s plans for the future, including upcoming gigs with Riff Raff and Point Blank graduate Patrick Topping. Watch this space in 2017 as Lee is planning to release a new single on a Circus Recordings compilation, as well as featuring on a compilation for El Row’s BPM and working on some secret projects. Exciting stuff!
