Lee Burton - Electronic Seikilos Participation

Fri 7 Oct 2016

Lefteris Kalabakas is a born musician. This versatile artist wears many hats, including: Music Producer, DJ and Song Writer, known by the moniker, ‘Lee Burton.’ Co-founder of Audiorama record label and club night, resident DJ at Six D.o.g.s. Instructor at SAE Technology Group, Athens. He is based in Athens, Greece.

As a teenager growing up in Athens, he studied music and was a guitarist and bassist for several progressive rock and jazz-rock fusion groups. It was during this time period, while composing music and digging through vinyl at local record shops, that led to his discovery of electronic music. At the age of 19, he began producing his first tracks and djing at local parties. In 2006, he signed with Klik records, releasing his debut album “Lullaby” under the moniker, ‘Liberto’ and various EPs and remixes on labels such as Trapez and Zenit. He received strong and impressive feedback from these early productions and in turn, it put his name on the map of electronic music.

Fast forward to 2012, Lefteris matured into his present-day ‘signature sound,’ where deep-moody and analog melodies shaped a new birth and moniker known as ‘Lee Burton.’ He released his sophomore album “Busy Days for Fools” in this same year with Klik records, with the likes of Michael Meyer and Laurent Garnier providing concrete support and positive feedback. Following this, he produced various releases, remixes and appearances at labels such as: Infinee, Amam and IRR.

In 2013, he formed Audiorama, a vinyl-only record label and club night, created with the combined synergy of Alex Dimou and Bodj. Audiorama has procured some of the most successful club nights at venues such as: Six Dogs, Pixi, Beatstreet Festival, to name a few. 

Lefteris’ career has spanned two continents, both throughout Europe and North America, playing at some of the most renowned clubs, festivals and venues such as: Resolute N.Y, TBA, Monarch (USA), Salon Daome (Montreal, CA), Festival Yeah!, Workshop Infine (FR), Solyanka , Dom Beat (RU) U-60311 (GER), A.K.A , Micro , The Egg (UK), Entechno Festival (Athens,GR), Cavo Paradiso (Mykonos, GR), Six D.O.G.S (Athens, GR).

Lefteris is currently submerged in the studio working diligently on his next album, with a release date coming up soon on the horizon.

Lee Burton

Ο Lee Burton, κατά κόσμον Λευτέρης Καλαμπάκας, γεννήθηκε στην Αθήνα στα μέσα του ’80 και από την ηλικία των 9 ετών είχε αναγνωρίσει το πάθος του για την μουσική. Σπούδασε τόσο κλασσική όσο και  jazz κιθάρα, συμμετείχε σε διάφορες μπάντες και σύλλεγε δίσκους μέχρι τα 19 του οπότε και ξεκίνησε τα πρώτα του βήματα τόσο στον τομέα της παραγωγής όσο του djing.

Έκτοτε έχουν ακολουθήσει το ντεμπούτο του “Lullaby” ως Liberto στην Κlik Records, πληθώρα σόλο κυκλοφοριών αλλά και συνεργασιών σε εταιρείες εντός και εκτός συνόρων (Trapez, Zenit), η γένεση του “Lee Burton” alias το 2009 με αναμορφωμένο ήχο, μέχρι την δισκογραφική επιστροφή του στην Klik records με το άκρως επιτυχημένο, εντός και εκτός συνόρων, “Busy days for fools” LP, πού κέρδισε την υποστήρηξη σημαντικών προσωπικοτήτων της σκηνής όπως ο Laurent Garnier και ο Michael Mayer μεταξή άλλων.

Με νέες κυκλοφορίες, remix και συνεργασιες σε σεβαστά label (Infine, Amam, IRR)  εμφανίσεις σε club και festival ανά τον κόσμο – Resolute N.Y , TBA, Monarch (USA), Salon Daome (CΑ), Festival Yeah!, Workshop Infine (FR), Solyanka , Dom Beat (RU) U-60311 (GER), A.K.A , Micro, The Egg (UK), Entechno Festival (GR), Cavo Paradiso (GR)-,  τη συνίδρυση του  record label και club night  “Audiorama” (με τους Bodj και Alex Dimou), και τις εμφανίσεις του ως resident Dj στοn Αθηνα’ι’κό πολυχώρο Six D.O.G.S, ο Λευτέρης δίκαια θεωρείται από τους πιό δραστήριους παραγωγούς της γενιάς του, ενώ το 2015 τον βρίσκει στο studio, με σκοπό την ολοκλήρωση του επόμενου άλμπουμ του.
