DJ Rod Lee

Profile:
Rod Lee is a Baltimore DJ, producer, and party MC who is known for the popularization of Baltimore Club music. Described as “the original don of Baltimore Club” by The Washington Post, in 2005 he released “Vol. 5: the Official,” a DJ mix that was the first Baltimore Club CD to be distributed nationally.[3] His productions have contributed to the success of local stars like Bossman and Paula Campbell. He is the founder and owner of the Club Kingz record label and has independently released four mixtapes that have circulated around the mid-Atlantic, but primarily within his native city of Baltimore.

Lee is highly popular among Baltimore club-goers and Baltimore Club music fans. Because the city and surrounding area of Baltimore does not have a highly developed urban music scene, he is currently considered one of the most notable artists to represent the city.

His song “Dance My Pain Away” was featured on the soundtrack to the HBO series The Wire.

Baltimore Breaks. Look no further as Rod Lee represents his breaks, like the best the ghetto got to offer. Taking cues from the Frank Ski "Whore's In The House" club tracks that came out of Baltimore about a decade ago, Rod Lee has created several ep's worth a mention. And what is unique about these ep's is that they all lean torwards something from back in the day, yet you cannot put your finger on it, like 90-91 U.K. stuff like "We Are I.E.". Almost like that T99 Break chopped up like Drum & Bass with a slower tempo. They are a unique and almost obscure batch of records that never really left their own city limits. And that is Lesson 101 in Underground Music circa 2005.
