Short biography of Lenny Dee: Lenny Dee started his career in DJing in the 80s at a local roller disco in Brooklyn NYC at the age of 17, which become his first residency. Lenny Dee is recognized as one of New York’s earliest Techno pioneers. His earlier music consisted of Disco, Electro-Body, High Energy and early House.

Lenny crossed paths with NY legend/ Radio DJ and Producer - Tommy Musto. Tommy and Lenny went on to make over 20 records together on Tommy’s label Fourth Floor that became underground hits in the U.K.

Lenny furthered his career by collaborating with Techno legend Frankie Bones and the DJ / Producer team of Frankie Bones and Lenny Dee was born. Their music catapulted on the British charts, with the XL-Recordings release Looney Tunes in 1989. The two Brooklyn born natives stormed through the UK'S dance scene with a style of breaks and pounding grooves that still influences Techno music today.

Lenny Dee took a short break to finish his Recording Engineering degree in New York City’s Institute of Audio Research. This led him to NY’s prestigious Skyline Studios, which at the time was the home of one of Lenny’s idols – legendary producer/singer/songwriter Nile Rodgers who is the producer of Chic, Madonna and David Bowie among others.
