There are people who crave technology and exactism, and care little for the gentle nuances of humanity, and then there is Spruce Lee, a man who embraces the juicy thump of an aorta and the ferocious engorging of a pair of ventricles like no other. Riding the waves of sensuality for some time now, he has established himself as a key player in a lot of things that are really good.??????As a producer, a DJ, a connoisseur and a flavour creator, he’s generally in view but out of reach - on the front foot making you wish you’d thought of that first but you didn’t because he did. A true class act, he somehow manages to unleash his devastatory skillset with a sleek nonchalance, like a Maserati. ??????A founding member of Ro Sham Bo, resident at both Bandits and the ever-astounding GoodGod Small Club, and support act at a bundle of high calibre shows (including Daft Punk, In Flagranti, Spankrock and Rub n Tug), Spruce’s selections are difficult to touch. An entire set full of 100% jams and 0% hits is a regularity, demonstrating not only his widespread repertoire of gold but also his vision of when a party’s a party.
He’s similarly on fire when in the studio, constantly churning out go-to productions adored by professionals and consumers alike. Both his commissioned and unofficial remixes have found serial-fans across the spectrum of nightclubbery, with Pase Rock including a (Robin Thicke) remix on his crucial “Live in Miami” mix and his recent rework of Walter Meego’s “Girls” finding it’s way on to the new One Love comp. On top of this, he’s the DJ, producer and svengali for Sydney rap pack S.Y.L.K, working with Catcall on new material and preparing his debut solo EP set for release on GoodGood.
Is there an end to Spruce Lee’s prolific phenomenonism? Pretty sure there isn’t.
