My goodness, is it really January already??? This month, Queenie catches up with a lovely fella who’ll definitely having you dancing and prancing throughout 2018. Whether it’s in London, Dublin, Southampton, Portsmouth or Sydney blooming Australia, Lee Harris is the man to put a definite spring in your step. Or should that be Steps?
Hello – how are you? I’m feeling great thanks! Work is very busy and life is very good and exciting for 2018, plus last year was a good year for productions including my own Get Together and Freaky People on Queen House Music.
Where can we see/hear you playing in 2018? I have a great new residency with Daddi in Dublin along with the usual London hotspots Village and Comptons, plus down South my Mondays at Hampshire Boulevard in Portsmouth and Wednesdays at The Edge in Southampton are going very well and I’ll also be going over for Mardi Gras in Sydney in 2018 too!!!! I also produce my own podcast HouseNation UK – Lee Harris, which is available to you lovely people on iTunes and Spotify…….
What kind of music are you playing these days? As I always say I don’t have a type – one party I could be playing disco, the next I’ll be playing full on 130bpm tribal house. I’m very flexible, as many will know hahaha!
Always a tricky question, but what’s your favourite song of all time? Has to be The Animals House Of The Rising Sun, I could listen to it again and again. I’ve only just learnt it’s about a brothel….
What would be your ultimate dream place to play on NYE and what’s been your best ever gig? I’m really enjoying my gigs with Orange Nation playing for We, Beyond and Matinee so I guess Circuit Festival in Barcelona or Madrid Pride would be my ideal. Hopefully I’ll be ticking off Sydney in 2018 too!
Name a tune you wish you’d never played – any time of year!!! So, so many, but they’re usually ones that aren’t mastered and always sound great when you buy them from Beatport. When drunk usually.
What’s your guilty pleasure? I love my 90’s pop groups – S Club, Steps, I could go on. Yep, sorry.
Have you made any New Year’s resolutions? To maybe calm down a bit and spend more time indoors with my boyfriend.
And finally describe yourself in three words. Crazy, Honest and Aquarius
