Lee Foss' Debut Album Transcends House and Fuses with Funk
By now you should know Lee Foss is a living legend. Starting super groups, launching leading labels, and crushing the decks from Burning Man to Bali is just a day in life of the Hot Creations boss. Lee has always has a special connection with the spirituality of house music as evident in his productions. Foss has changed the game through driving labels Emerald City and Hot Creations, collaborating on projects Hot Natured and Pleasure State, and staying on the road with an active global DJ career. After all of these accomplishments, Lee has reached a milestone which every accomplished artist can relate. At last a Lee Foss album is here in all of it's funky glory. Following a hiatus of solo productions (for some amazing output with Hot Natured), the twelve track Alchemy is here in all of its cosmic glory.
I'm interested in a world that better combines the spiritual realm with the scientific and western medicine we worship today. I feel like making music is the modern alchemy as we search for that perfect series of tones to reach our magnum opus. - Lee Foss
The cohesive journey across vocal-heavy house is tied together by Lee's typical percussion suite of feel-good drums and funky bass leads. In an album packed with groove, the track list contains a fair amount of hits. Boasting a star-studded cast of collaborators, many of the vocalist have already release studio hit's with Lee. Camille Safiya's 'The Gift' is a seductive tune laced with a classy lead for a subtle disco dance rooted in house. The driving pulse of 'Laserdance' check boxes on the other end of the spectrum for a dark outer world track made to move the floor. Don't take our word for it, stream this one through and through.
Not that it was needed, this milestone album is yet another notch in the belt of Lee Foss' growing legacy in dance. Known for his psychedelic take on house music, these 12 tunes launch straight into another dimension. With no sign of slowing down, this electronic innovator has build a space around his sound. Keep your ear on Emerald City for more from the spiritual future of deep house.
