After a weekend away doing some Voodoo in New Orleans, Verboten returns with a massive — eh eh eh, not so fast. I’m sure you thought I was going to say “massive line-up,” because well, lets be honest, it’s pretty uncommon for Verboten to only book one headliner for their Saturday night party. But this past Saturday, Nov. 5, they entrusted the success of their return to Good Units to none other than Mr. Lee Burridge. And $20 bucks says they’re glad they did – because he rocked it.
Lee is a known favorite all over the globe, and most certainly in New York, which is why Good Units was slammed packed this weekend. More than 500 people filled the enormous basement of the Hudson Hotel that is Good Units and watched as Lee effortlessly displayed a wide musical range of techno, minimal tech, tech house, deep house, and everything in between. He started the night off with some really mellow tech-house — not too fast, not too slow, and a good kick. After groovin’ for a bit he picked it up and in true Lee fashion, hit you with some hardcore highs (#welovehighhats!) and bass-line driven tracks that plummeted through a good portion of his set.
Check out Lee Burridge dropping Luca Bacchetti’s “Tango”.
Relax skeptics (you know you’re out there), I said he showed his range, and he did so through tracks like the DJ T remix of Phreek Plus One’s “Passion” featuring Mr. White and Maceo Plex’s “Under the Sheets”. Not enough? How bout dropping “Stay High Baby,” a track set to release Maceo Plex’s new label, Ellum Audio, on Nov. 21. It was sexy, it was intense, it was nasty, it was wonderful — everything Lee Burridges’ return to an underground NYC venue should be.
