We are pleased to bring you the new album 'Vocation' by Oxford/Bath UK based eclectic electronic solo artist Lee Christian. The album is available to download for free here: https://leechristian.bandcamp.com/album/vocation.
For 'Vocation', Lee Christian's 6th solo record in 5 years, (working separately from his bands Smilex & The Prohibition Smokers' Club) rather than write, perform and produce everything as he has done so far, Lee decided to work with many talented producers (previous collaborators and brand new), focussing instead solely on lyrics, melodies and harmonies.
Taking inspiration from David Bowie’ s departure from the shock rock glam of Ziggy and experimental explorations of the Thin White Duke, for the contemporary R&B sheen of Nile Rodgers produced classic Let’s Dance. The result is his most immediate collection of songs for a decade, a sprawling yet cohesive set, including Electronica, Dance, Hip Hop, soul, RnB, Funk and more from over a dozen beat makers from around the world.
'Vocation' is overflowing with summery festival vibes, the result perhaps of road testing some of the material with his band The Prohibition Smokers’ Club, supporting Roachford and headlining stages and thrilling audiences at Truck, Cornbury and Wychwood festivals… and more! A diverse mix of influences from D'angelo, Ice Cube, Bone, Thugs and Harmony, Funkadelic, Outkast, George Benson, Run The Jewels, to Alliyah Depeche Mode, Beck, Leftfield & Lydon & Tricky sees 'Vocation' pushing the boundaries of electronic music.
