Lee Gamble DJ
Across his discography - now spanning over a decade -, UK-based musician, composer, producer, and label-head Lee Gamble begs the question; can you philosophize on the dancefloor? His own answers have shifted over time. His past work, according to a Resident Advisor profile, has been ‘nakedly escapist’; an excuse to turn up, and switch off. On this year’s year’s ‘Models’, Gamble strikes a balance, reflecting the drapery of the algorithmic age through a lush sonic tapestry that is free-flowing, but not random. Behind the booth, as he is performing at Le Guess Who?, he is just as unpredictable, and yet, he is always in control.
