Clint Lee loves a little disturbing behavior; with roots in the richly cultured soil of Africa and a penchant for mind-bending minimal and tribal techno, he entices clubbers to twist in all sorts of distorted array, and has firmly embedded his name in London's electronic jungle.
Clint Lee's journey into Electronic Dance Music began under the African sun. Growing up to an ethnic beat along the East Coast of Durban, South Africa, in a musically ambitious family; he was destined to find his life rhythm in music. Clint relocated to London, took his animalistic approach to dance music with him and savagely took to the club circuit in early 2001. With his natural attraction to percussive and native sounds, he built a solid repute for beastly bass lines and electronic jungle fever'd sets. Now, over eight years in, his African-inspired, futuristic beatings are in high demand in both London and Ibiza, with regular bookings in the Greater United Kingdom and Europe.
Clint has played at some of the biggest club nights in London; with regular appearances for Zombies Ate My Brain, Zombie Soundsystem, Circo Loco, and regular appearances at Zoo Project and Underground in Ibiza since their inception. Guest appearances at some of London's most solid event nights include, Fervor, Retox, VeryVeryWongIndeed, Mixmag Events and Jaded, playing alongside some of the biggest names in House and Techno including, Audion, Guido Schneider, Loco Dice, Booka Shade, Stimming, Mathew Johnson, James Holden, Dan Genacia, Gui Boratto, Jamie Jones, Marc Houle, Timo Maas, Steve Bug, Ralph Lawson and Mr C.
Clint has also debuted at the TDK and Global Breakthrough festivals in past years which saw him rub shoulders and play records alongside Laurent Garnier, Francois K, Masters at Work and 2 Many Dj's to name a few.
2010 has seen Clint's animalistic sound burst out in all directions; from Tel Aviv to Ibiza and Moscow to Cape Town. In the summer Clint was based in Ibiza with guest slots for Mumu and new comers to The White Isle, Warung, who took over Privilege with a stellar line up of guests and residents from the revered Warung Beach Club in Brazil. Wildlife Ibiza launched two summer's ago alongside Zoo Project in the island's old abandoned zoo and saw support from Monika Kruse, Shonky, Ame, SIS, System of Survival, Anthony Collins and Jose De Davina. Clint Lee shook the crowds at beach bar, Ushuaia with fello comrade Behrouz during the summer as well as guest appearances at Sands, Savannahs, Es Vive, Pacha Hotel and Grial. Clint was also featured on Global Radio through the summer spreading his afro tech sounds along the Balearic airwaves.
Whilst being on tour in Africa a few years back, an important vision came into mind, a vision that would change the path of Clint Lee and our endangered wildlife in years to come. Wildlifestyle, a concept built on experience, dedication and passion. Focused on preserving the fundamentals of lifestyle and living.
Wildlife, just one of the elements from Wildlifestyle is an exciting and unique global project that aims to bring a message of awareness about animal cruelty to the culturally diverse and socially extrovert world of clubland, bringing creative artists and performers together in demonstration and encouraging a unified dance for humanism.
Wildlife made its mark again in its 3rd year on the white Isle by hosting some of the islands most talked about parties in some of the most breath taking sites and villas. If it were one word to describe this summer it would certainly be wild, from pool parties, mansion parties and mountain top parties. Bringing in some of the islands favourite Djs, friends and local talent namely Jose De Divina, Behrouz, Francisco Allendes to name a few.
Wildlife also made its paw print in Berlin this summer which saw Claude Von Stroke headlining the Wildlife Arena for Dream Berlin. An event which played host to 15 000 revelers who danced away to some of the worlds leading Djs.
In 2011 Wildlifestyle will be taking another wholesome approach in tackling cruelty to animals through electronic music with its very own Wildlife Recordings. With each release being dedicated to a specific species in danger. Clint Lee and label partner Alex Corr will be at the helm of this movement taking on board artists of a similiar nature and sound.
Clint's ethos is 'be creative, be yourself and just let go! Something he encourages from behind the box through his sets. From coaxing a shy floor into action, entertaining the partygoers, enlightening the curious, satisfying the whims of the tired and weary, he constantly monitors the energy levels of the crowd at all times. It is this intelligent and conscious approach, merged with his down to earth manner and cool mixing demeanour that makes his dancefloor one to remember!
