Interview with Kai Lee

Q: How would you describe your style?
A: It depends on the style of music
Q: What was your career path? How long have you been doing this?
A: After having had piano lessons as a little child and being surrounded by music, because my father was a musician too, I’ve started as a DJ in the 80‘s. Funk, Soul, HipHop, Reggae and Pop. In the Late 80’s I got into producing Beats with an Ensoniq EPS Sampler for local rappers. Due to the lack of isolated basslines on records to sample from, I had to learn playing Bassguitar myself. This led me to playing Funk , Reggae and Rock Music in bands as a Bassist. Some time later I happened to produce a Demo with a local Rapper called „The Wolf“ wich instantly became a big Hit in Germany. So from there I was hired as a Coproducer, Musician and Recording and Mixing Engineer at „click music“ Studios in 1997 where I had the pleasure to work with international Artists and Producers on numerous Gold and Platinum Productions. Today I am working as a Mixing and Recording Engineer at „Amaterasu Tonstudios“, which provides Number One Hit Singles in Urban Music regularly, as well as freelanced for other Companies and Artists, additionally to my own Productions.
