I’m doing a internship for Reinforced entertainment and i just done a blog post about shabba dabba da. This blog will be up on http://www.reinforcedevents.co.uk soon !
As the smoke clears and recessionistas search for the newest hot-spot, Shabba-Dabba-Da gears London up for a boom-time party like no other, a warholian interpretation of a utopian enclave in a dystopian world of fame, fortune and capitalism. Imagine the Blitz Vs Studio 54, with Jacuzzis.
You’re invited to our to the second instalment of the Shabba-Dabba-Da Spectacular.
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.
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. He has played alongside Kraftwerk, The Gorillas, New Order, LCD Soundsystem, N*E*R*D, Chemical Brothers, The Cure, Katy Perry and Fatboy Slim in festivals like Bennicassim, Global Gathering, Mysterylands, Primavera, and Summercase and his international schedule has grown with his Beatport success (The Crooker’s has his new single in their top 10 beatport). New videos for “Licky”, “I Love U” (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hqgC6VYwH3M), Licky, for the Perez Hilton’s track, Hipster Girl and Amanda LePore and an exclusive re-edit of Kelly’s Shoes for youtube.com give the the album a visual side like no other album today! The next single, “I Love U,” featuring 7-year-old Amanita has already been remixed by Bart B More, Christopher Just, and The Bulgarian and has just been released worldwide (it’s on the Crooker’s top 10 beatport chart!). Club Badd is set to be the “Girls Gone WIld” of 2009, meaning the runaway surprise hit that took the country by storm.
