Joey Negro is the most well-known pseudonym of master British DJ/producer/remixer Dave Lee. Under a plethora of other monikers including Jakatta, Akabu, Doug Willis, Raven Maize, The Sunburst Band, Sessomatto, and Z Factor, Dave was one of the first artists to incorporate disco samples in house music when he began his production career in 1988. Indeed, he was in the studio making credible and outstanding British House music when many luminaries around him were still busy getting to grips with their decks. Little has changed since then, and Dave is still widely regarded as one of the most commercially successful and in-demand artists on the global scene.
A producer first and foremost, his work ethic is legendary, having been involved in well over 200 productions, countless albums and a healthy stack of hit singles with tracks such as 'Must Be The Music', 'Make A Move On Me', 'Can't Get High Without You' and Jakatta's 'American Dream' and 'My Vision'. His discography is undoubtedly impressive and his deep understanding as a selector of all things soulful and house on the dancefloor have ensured his status on the global DJ circuit worldwide to this day. Joey Negro's sets reflect his extensive love of music ranging from rare disco through to vocal and classic house often into more deep, electronic and techy areas, his sets littered with exclusives, old and new.
