Larry Tee hails from Atlanta, Georgia where he was friends with REM and his first group, The Fans, produced the B-52s' first independent single “Rock Lobster/52 Girls.” He moved to NYC with fellow Atlantans RuPaul and Lady Bunny and quickly took over the NYC club scene with his epic party, Love Machine. He started and named the infamous DISCO 2000 of Party Monster movie fame, DJ'ed the Roxy weekly, and co-wrote the Billboard Top 40 song; Rupaul's “Supermodel (You Better Work).” In 1997 Larry Tee made the decision to get clean from drugs and alcohol and decided to re-examine his life and career. He turned to music for inspiration and championed a new sound and movement, which became the Electroclash phenomena. He created the term “Electroclash” for his festivals in 2001/2002 (it's in the Oxford English Dictionary) which helped launch the careers of Scissor Sisters, Felix Da Housecat, 2 Many DJs/Soulwax, Peaches and many more.
Fast forward to 2008 and we see Larry Tee traveling all over the world bringing his unique sound and exclusive tracks to festivals and nightclubs worldwide. He DJed the Perez Hilton party at SXSW, which helped launch the career of Katy Perry (and also featured N.E.R.D), plus he has played alongside Kraftwerk, Gorillaz, New Order, LCD Soundsystem, Nick Cave, Chemical Brothers, Mark Ronson and Fatboy Slim in festivals such as Bennicassim, Global Gathering, Mysterylands, Primavera, and Summercase and his international schedule has grown with his Beatport success (The Crooker's has his new single in their Top 10 Beatport). New videos for “Licky”, “I Love U”, and for the Perez Hilton track, “My Penis”, as well as an exclusive re-edit of Kelly's “Shoes” for youtube.com give the album a visual side like no other album today! The next single, "I Love U", featuring 7-year-old Amanita, has already been used to open the MSTKRFT show, with Ghostface Killa MCing over it remixed by Bart B More, Christopher Just and The Bulgarian, and has just been released worldwide.
