House Masters Joey Negro is an incredible, eclectic collection from the one of the world’s leading proponents of disco-inspired house music.

Joey Negro is the most well-known pseudonym of master British producer, remixer, DJ and label owner Dave Lee. With his production career beginning in 1988, Dave is intrinsically linked to the birth of house music in the UK. Famously recording under a variety of aliases including Akabu, Doug Willis, The Sunburst Band, Jakatta, Raven Maize, Sessomatto and Z Factor, he has created a truly exceptional back catalogue accounting for many of house music’s highlights over a career spanning three decades.

Disco has always played its part in Lee’s music: he was one of the first British artists to incorporate disco samples into the various house music styles with which he is so recognisably identified. Indeed, as a genuine aficionado of disco he has few equals anywhere in the world. He’s as productive as ever, either in the studio or behind the decks, and most recently under his Joey Negro alias, Lee was integral to the success of Defected’s brand new Glitterbox residency in Ibiza.

In terms of production, Dave’s imagination and creativity has proved limitless. He’s enjoyed both huge commercial success on records such as Jakatta’s ‘American Dream’ - a UK No.3 - and ‘Make A Move On Me’, alongside an avid underground following through monikers such as Akabu, and via labels such as Transmat, Junior Boys Own, NRK and his own thriving label, Z Records.

From the live disco and boogie of The Sunburst Band to the unique funk-fuelled grooves of Joey Negro, House Masters Joey Negro is Dave’s personal curation of the greatest records from a catalogue that spans every corner of house music.

As well as genre-defining original productions under the guises of Doug Willis, Raven Maize and of course Joey Negro, also included are a handful of seminal remixes for artists such as Erro and Masters At Work to Patrice Rushen and Blaze, all unmixed and DJ friendly.

The digital release includes 12 additional tracks, featuring an exclusive Joey Negro re-edit of Erro’s ‘Don’t Change’, as well as further remixes of Dave Lee originals from Henrik Schwarz, Ame and Dennis Ferrer. “It was a case of balancing the various sides of what I've done over the years” says Lee of the selection process. “You want to include the personal favourites and some tracks that were popular purely on the underground, alongside others that were more successful on a commercial level. “As a producer one of the skills you must have is remaining objective, even when you've heard the piece of music you're working on several thousand times. The same goes for the selection here. The House Masters series is literally a who's who of house music, so obviously it’s great to be part of it.”
