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 decided 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. In 2007, Larry launched an international music festival in NYC called the Dance Music Invasion 2007. This festival brought together everyone from Loco Dice to Lil' Louie Vega to Kele from the Bloc Party to Princess Superstar. This was the beginning of a yearly event devoted to bringing more awareness to electronic music in the US and continued Tee's tradition of supporting up-and-coming artists.
Fast forward to 2008 and we see Larry Tee traveling all over the world bringing his unique sound and exclusive tracks to festivals and cool nightclubs worldwide.
