MISSION TO MARS
THIS MONTH IS OUR MATE, NICE GUY LEE'S TURN TO LOCK DOWN LIFT OFF.
PEZA, SOME WHAT OF A NU-DISCO AND RE-EDIT VETERAN, TREATS US TO A CHEEKY INTERVIEW EXCLUSIVE AND A FUN FRESH, NEW YEAR MIX.
Before we start, can you tell us a bit of a description of the mix you’ve sent us? We have noticed you have worked on some outstanding collaborations with Greg Wilson, how did this come about?
Ok so the mix I have put together is a fresh mix of some new stuff that I have been listening to lately, I am GAGGING to get back out there to play at a gig so some of these will be in the playlist for that I'm sure. There is a fair bit of acid tinged stuff, there is also a few little curveballs. Im a sucker for a chant on a track and I love a heavy beat...so there's a nice track the middle by Ruba KPO that ticks all the boxes. I had fun putting this together!
The collab with Greg came about after I initially sent him an edit that I had done of the Garbage track 'Stupid Girl'. Greg really liked it and gave me a few ideas on how to push it a bit further, from that point we kept in contact and exchanged ideas, at that time I was putting nights on and booked Greg to come and play, we really got on and from that point on I started playing with Greg, Derek Kaye and Henry Greenwood as the Credit To The Edit Collective. Greg is a great bloke and a walking encyclopaedia of music...i love spending time with him and playing alongside him is always a privilege.
Lets pretend and fast forward to the year 2033, and NASA announces they are selecting an elite few to be the first of mankind to touch down on Mars. Based on your resounding intelligence, witty humour, skills and good looks - You have been chosen! Question is, would you accept a one way ticket?
Would I fuck!!!! (Is that witty enough for ya?)
Tough, you're going! ;) You are the chosen Commander! Theres a big old space ship waiting to be named..... What are you going to call her?
Tricky one but you have to make the decision... If you can take anyone – past or present – fact or fiction - What 3 space cadets are you going to take with you on your adventure of a lifetime?
Tommy Cooper, for obvious reasons. My dog Mabel....and the last one is tricky...Im not taking the kids or anyone I really care for just in case it all goes tits up so I think I'll take Arnold Schwarzenegger.
Crew and spaceship ready, the final countdown has begun. Now you have just one day left on Earth ........what would you do?
Probably just watch a bit of Homes Under The Hammer.....or get smashed on techno dust and space pellets.
It takes 7 months for you and your teams quest to Mars. 7 months! You are allowed a choice of 5 records to play on the Inflight Space Entertainment system– which belters do you take with you?

You’ve made it! Now time to make things like home... What Netflix series would you choose to watch?

A new planet needs new rules and regulations. You can write one law on planet Mars that everyone has to obey by, what law would you put in place and why?

Things have got a little hairy, you are in a sticky situation and stood face to face with a 3 eyed,15ft neon green Alien and about to get into a bust up! What song comes on as as your chosen kick ass sound track.
Beastie Boys - Intergalactic
Finally, you are allowed one phone call back to Earth, who do you call?
OKAY LEE, NOW TDDUD WANTS TO FIND A LITTLE MORE ABOUT YOU.
Describe a heart warming, skin tingling, goosey memorable moment from your musical journey so far?
I get like this pretty much every time I play! There have been loads but I guess one that stands out is playing Festival No6 and having the crowd bouncing up and down on the floating dance-floor!
If you can name anything, what is your best ever / worse ever musical purchase?
Best Ever – Moog, Worst ever – a shit didgeridoo.
Tell us something we don't know…
Ive just eaten a Cornish Pasty!
