Lenny Posso, a born and raised New Yorker, has traveled the ranks of the NYC dance music culture over the past two decades. Relishing in all things techno and house since day one, starting as a dancer in all of NYC’s famous hotspots in the early 90’s,..
Lenny Posso, a native New Yorker, (currently residing in Berlin, Germany) started his musical journey as a dancer during the opulent frenzy of NYC’s early 90’s rich nightlife, witnessing first hand the birth of a movement that we later coined the “the Underground”. Through out the years Lenny has seen and experienced many waves of the various sounds that dominated the city’s hot spots (Red Zone, Limelight, Sound Factory…) Being fully immersed and accepted by all the factions of the New York underground is what truly inspired him to take this Art form further. These early influences led Lenny to become a DJ, promoter, and now label head of three very successful record labels—Thema, Thema Digital Series and Chronicle. Utilizing his years of experience in different facets of the industry – promotion, label management, DJing – helped to carve out his small niche in the City’s well-known music history.
Lenny has shared the DJ booth with legions of DJs/artists locally and abroad playing in clubs such as Output, Tresor, Berghain, The Rex, Le Sucre and other clubs and underground spots throughout Europe and North America, sharing his bold, energetic, unique blend of techno funk. His motivation lies in the pursuit to positively engage the audience with the most current and obscure sounds of today, as well as yesterday. His style of DJ’ing is one that tries to tell a story through sound while keeping his eyes set firmly on the future of the music.
As founder and manager of Thema Recordings, Lenny has created a platform that continues to develop and redefine the ever-evolving New York underground as the city’s international profile broadens. Never conforming to one style or sound, Thema has built a reputation for putting out some of the most cutting edge, abstract, techno and house music coming out of the U.S. today. With artists such as Norm Talley, Christopher Rau, Ark, Terrence Dixon, Oskar Offermann & Edward showcasing Thema’s dynamic spectrum of House Music and Techno. This year marks its 10 Year Anniversary with no sign of slowing down. The sub-label Chronicle is geared more towards a sci-fi, futuristic, harder groove, techno sound. Showcasing artists such as Population One, Staffan Linzatti, Aiken, Samuli Kemppi and Zadig helping to define Chronicle’s sci-fi, forward thinking approach. Last but not least is Thema Digital Series, a digital only label that is dedicated to showcasing up and coming talents from across the globe and to nurture a nice new cache of young new Thema Artists. Each label is designed to help push new grounds, and develop a forum for artists to explore their craft. Keep your eyes and ears open, its time to go deeper!
