I don't understand why so many Lenny Dee releases are classified as "Hardcore". Lenny Dee is "Gabber"

Remember hearing Lenny Dee scratching up the extreme techno on a big love 1993 mix. Absolutely mind blowing. He's always managed to make an often derided artform sound like nothing else. Also loved that that cut n scratch raw hardcore DJ style which seem to hear less often in the digital age. Industrial strength records also has some seminal releases connecting the dots with the whole spectrum of electronic music that still resonates to this day. Respect to the Lenny Dee.

My first introduction to lenny dee was a tape from "Sterns" the legendary club in Worthing around 92. What I heard pricked my ears up and blew my tiny mind! After a few more tapes came my way including one from "pure" in Edinburgh I was a proper fan. The energy and tunes coming out of the speakers then and now still is unrivalled. Bollocks to the lot that slate his mixing and dj ability I have seen him rock a party like no other - he is a master of his craft. Track listing his mixes took me years as he played so many tunes in an hour or so its unreal, some I was convinced were one track. He was, and is still referred to as "god" by a lot of scottish ravers including myself. I have seen him play numerous times and loved every second. These days I'm proud to say we are friends after a chance meeting at my mates house still don't quite believe I know him personally! He knows how much of a fan i am and even phoned me to tell him the last track he played at sterns as he couldn't remember lol. The man is an out and out legend, a human dynamo responsible for so many artists and music being around today. To this day he still pumps out cutting edge music and plays as hard as he did when i first heard him. Still at the top of his game and playing all round the world he has flown well over a million miles. I'm happy to say i have played at some gigs with the man himself, a true gentleman and extremely humble not like the self obsessed pricks these days. Thats all i'm saying incase jules gets jealous :D

the dee man in the zone forever ;) smell yer maw x

I saw Lenny play at a couple of rezerection nights at Inglston,Edinburgh and whilst I have to say his djing ability wasn't up there with the likes of the producer or carl cox,I now realise that he was most likely too busy producing classic material which the aforementioned DJs may well have been playing.some 20-25 years later,the amount of records I still buy from back then (didn't have the money at the time!) is staggering! The man is a stone cold legend and I would say he has done as much for techno as any of the big guys,and certainly more than anyone I can think of in terms of hardcore techno.a living legend and no mistake.

Yeah been priviledged enough to play with him twice when he's been down under to Perth - in 97 & in 2014 - the man's a flippin legend, a complete nutcase when he's "in the zone" & my god the sets this chap has dropped over the years (whether it be his infamous Sterns 92, Holland, Germany, Oz, USA etc etc) make him worthy of the World Dance scene's applause - as has been said here not many ppl stick like he has to the hard edge & still push it always all these years later. On top of that he's a the most down-to-earth genuine bloke that goes out of his way to chat to the punters w/out ego...the kinda DJ for DJs & yet still a raver at heart at the same time (if that makes sense). Absolute ResPekt for the guy, his DJ'ing, his production & HUGE contribution to the scene.

Ah... Mr Dee, I recall him fondly. I used to go and see him DJ at Pure in Edinburgh in the early 90's, he just blew your head apart. You could tell instantly when he came on (you could hardly see at times in that place with the smoke machine); the noise level went up, and he would introduce himself with some crunching noise like a hammer repeatedly hitting an anvil or something, then he would take you on his hardcore voyage. I loved him, never missed him when he was playing there.

He is an excellent DJ, around the same time, Atkins, May, Baxter, Folwkes, Hawtin etc all used to play sets at Pure, but Lenny for me was the best DJ, he always delivered. Great nightclub was Pure, bringing along these top DJ's.

Lennys best music for me was his work on Rising High and Sapho record labels, Knightphantom or Dominatrix EP's, Hardcore with plenty of rhythm and innovation.

I salute you Sir.

Being at a hardcore party when Lenny's spinning, whether it be in Brooklyn, Syracuse, or somewhere across the globe is a mind-bending experience. Owning the dance floor is way to simple of a term to explain this man's ability to take the sound system to its fullest potential. Many times I would think to myself "This is this amplifier's last leg. There are no electronics that can handle this kind of abuse." At one point I wondered if he used titanium cartridges. But that's Lenny Dee. When he's on there is nothing else happening. And if there is, it's people running for the quiet solace of their beds. I've often felt sorry for the people that couldn't handle the music and ended up leaving early.

If you are brave enough to experience hardcore, you should dance to Lenny Dee.

20 years ago right now, we were neighborhood rivals. Growing up in Brooklyn could in fact be Teenage Wasteland.
But Lenny Dee was destined to make a long life from Electronic Music. 1985 would be the first year that Lenny Dee, Omar Santana and myself would find our names on vinyl releases. And they all were on Hip Hop records. Then by chance it was a mutual friend who gave us a chance to make our own records. Tommy Musto just started in-house production at 25 West Records and in 1987, Nugroove and Fourth Floor Records became a place we called home. Lenny produced Fallout "The Morning After" which Warp Records included on its "Influences" project and what followed was release after release of influential works. Even the tiny projects such as "Drumdrops" would become the template for
Snap "The Power". This being a horn blast I watched Lenny do live scratching on a 1200 in my tiny studio.

He then formed The Brooklyn Funk Essentials with Victor Simonelli while working for Arthur Baker at Shakedown Studios. Lenny was now rubbing elbows with people like Nile Rogers from Chic and Arthur took a liking to what he was hearing and a ton of remix work followed. Then Lenny became friends with The KLF which led to more projects and soonafter formed his own Industrial Strength Records.

What Lenny Did totally on his own merit was create a big chunk of Hardcore Gabba music which might have been based in Holland as history goes, but Brooklyn's own from day one. All the biggest names in the Dutch Scene credit him as an inspiration and Lenny continues his legacy to this day. Whereas many people think a scene has come and gone, it has'nt for Lenny. He is playing his style, his way, today, tomorrow and if history repeats itself forever. A good guy with a great history is a man like Lenny Dee.
