D-Node 098: Andrew Kevins vs. Easy Lee at Zanzibar

Andrew and Easy debut their Midwest-bred set for the LA crowd at FI / Droid Presents Technique. April 13, 2010. Bios below.

Lee Doerr:

Having played in jazz & rock bands from an early age, Lee became fully immersed in electronic music while working as DJ and Music Director at 88.9FM WERS in Boston, MA. In 2006 Lee moved to Chicago, where his long-held influences of jazz, world and soul music became focused through the lens of techno & house under the tutelage of the city’s infamous Naughty Bad Fun Collective. Now based in Los Angeles, Lee continues to bring his mix of classic and contemporary techno, house, disco and everything in between, with an emphasis on the fun side of dance music.

Lee has played opening Slots (solo and w/ Andrew) for artist such as Lee Curtiss, Matthew Dear, Shaun Reeves, Kate Simko, Michael Mayer and other top names. He has also been heavily focusing on his studio production projects lately, incorporating tools such as Maschine, Ableton, Guitar Rig, Traktor Pro, and more.

Andrew Kevins:

Equally influenced by Kurt Eckes¹ legendary Midwest Drop Bass parties and family techno campouts, as well as Richie Hawtin¹s heady parties of the second half of the nineties. The various sounds of house, techno, electro, hip-hop, and IDM became a sort of obsession for Andrew and friends, following the movements at various events across the country, from Chicago to Detroit, NY to LA.

With having held down full-time positions at Shure Audio, Steinway Piano, and (presently) Native Instruments, these positions have allowed Andrew to continue on in an intimate relationship with music and audio. With a love of all great music, his DJ sets strive for versatility and diversity, ranging from downtempo, dub, idm, hip-hop, rock, soul, disco, house, techno, and everything in between, depending on the crowd and atmosphere. Andrew makes a point to steer clear of genre pigeonholing and saturation, but always likes to reference his electronic influential roots of Chicago, Detroit, New York, Berlin, Cologne, Manchester, and Chile in his DJ sets and production work. He has opened for artists such as Ellen Allien, Modeselektor, Michael Mayer, Matthew Dear, Jeff Samuel, Solvent, and Skoozbot, among others.
