Sample reviews of “DDD:”

 

"After a brief bit of droning sitar swirl, chant and effects, a classic throbbing Trance-House beat kicks in and we’re off to the Psychedelic Rave races. I’m talking disco balls in space that shoot showers of paisley colored lights and stream melting and weaving layers of Eastern flavored meditative drone ooze that one can either dance the night away to or just close your eyes and groove with."   - Jerry Kranitz, Aural-Innovations Blog

 

" I could see this being a great anthem to be part of a live show that would have the audience entranced and in a dance! Feverish fun!! " -KM, INDEPENDENT REVIEW blog

New Technopera Unleashed! - June 20, 2014

“The Smeagol has landed!” – Commander Beam-O

“Help spread the bovine ‘Gospel of Cheeze’s TM. ‘”– Father Ben Dover

Electronica/Techno Savant Lee Negin releases new “Technopera,” The Cheeze Chronicles: Volume V on June 20, 2014 (Passing Phase Records)

Continuing his epic cycle of Technoperas--patterned after Wagner’s “Der Ring des Nibelungen” (‘The Ring Cycle’) -- Lee Negin launches his electric and eclectic new album, The Cheeze Chronicles: Volume V (Passing Phase Records) with an official release on June 20th, 2014. The material is a blend of Techo-funk-psychedelic-jazz-world-rock-ambient-electronica-experimenatal-social satire-irony-mysticism-prog-surrealism-dadaism-industrial-pop-metal-Musique concrete-Western Classical-impressionism, etc., Negin’s usual musical milieu.

 "Hearing this artist's expertly produced work is to experience a vision aimed beyond the realm of pop. ...Negin never offers the same sound twice, employing singers as ensemble instruments and working with sounds in a way that reminds us at times of Brian Eno, Aphex Twin and Wendy Carlos." - Music Connection Magazine

 

“Lee Negins new ‘Technodelic” craziness, “The Cheeze Chronicles: Volume V” will surely keep you awake! Once you think you have it figured out, the music takes you in a completely different direction. What is more surprising—beyond Negin’s mastery, sound quality and his sheer brilliance—is that the world he creates, while appearing ‘absurd’ and ‘bizarre’--is much less absurd than the ‘real’ world most of us apparently inhabit. If Negin’s aim was to point out the absurdities of our society and contemporary life, then he hit the nail fully on the head.” – Gianmaria Consiglio (Esteemed Italian Music Journalist)

 

"Man, it's a sonic journey of epic proportions. In the world of opera, the Cheeze is mighty indeed. Negin doesn't so much hit the funk button, as kick it all the way to Neptune. I'm loving it." - Simon Humphrey (UK Producer/Engineer: The Clash, Culture Club, David Byrne, Hans Zimmer, Jeff Beck, etc.)

Album sonics are impeccable. Recorded and mixed in Negin’s state-of-the-art studio in Seoul, the album was mastered by one of the preeminent mastering engineers in the world, Pete Maher in London. Pete has worked with U2, Nine Inch Nails, Depeche Mode, Gary Numan, Patti Smith, The Rolling Stones, etc.

The album will be released as a limited edition CD, with cover art by a brilliant young Korean illustrator-cartoonist, Juyong Lee. It will also be released digitally and available at CD Baby, Amazon (Internationally) iTunes, etc.

First single and video from the album, “(Let’s Join) The Twit Parade” released 13 June. Video at  http://youtu.be/SWSU62zT1ow

"Lee Negin brilliantly defines a musical realm that is his alone. He effortlessly forges through the uncharted waters of musical Zen and cleverly orchestrates sound into a vibrant, visceral experience. Mr. Negin is a savvy magician welding a maestro's baton, a mystical boatman guiding the listener on an epic journey through undiscovered sonic terrain." - Lee Crisman, Pluto Radio

 

Lee Negin is a recording artist, composer, multi-instrumentalist, synthesist, videographer, producer and recording engineer. In the 1980’s, he was a pioneer in the international Indie/techno/new wave movement and the “Detroit Techno” scene and his recordings and videos receive airplay (including by the late John Peel on the BBC) and distribution around the world. He is listed as an influential artist in "The International Discography of the New Wave" (edited by B. George and Martha Defoe (Omnibus Press). He has several critically acclaimed videos on YouTube and other video networks. He is ranked as the #1 Electronica/Experimental artist in Korea (where he currently resides) on Reverbnation—a ranking he has maintained for 3+ years. .http://www.reverbnation.com/leenegin

 

Negin returned to recording in 2010 after a long hiatus (with the 1994 album release, “Balance”) when one of his songs, the techno classic "Nothing Goes Right" from the 1980's appeared on a compilation released on a German label, Genetic Music. Since then, he has released 8 full albums, a few EPs, several singles and 28+ videos. His work has also been included in several international compilations.

New Project 2014 - March 2, 2014

New Project: I started work several months ago on an album that was supposed to be a collection of techno-pop/funk tunes. However, after becoming engrossed in the material, it has morphed into a 14-track magnum opus; a 'chapter' of an opera I've been toying with for a few years about a fellow called Cheeze. It is a blend of: techno-pop/funk; electronica; psychedelia; experimental; jazz; ambient; world and classical--and that's just in one song :) I am now starting to mix the tracks, having finished all recording last week. I have been lucky to enlist the services of a leading mastering engineer in the UK, Pete Maher, who has agreed to master my new album. Pete has mastered, among many others, U2, Depeche Mode, Patti Smith, Nine Inch Nails, etc. I am quite lucky to get this opportunity. He was introduced to me by my dear friend Simon Humphrey, who helped me mix my "Hungry Ghosts" album. Besides me, Simon has mixed The Clash, Jeff Beck, Culture Club. Hans Zimmer, ABBA, etc. I will start taking pre-orders in late March, to help me pay for the new album (I will make a limited run of actual CDs, with cover artwork by some very cool international artists). It will be my version of 'crowd funding' without the crowd. Slated release will be in April or perhaps early May. Please stay tuned. Info at
