Opel presents: Lee Coombs

Lee Coombs

Breakbeat and Tech Funk DJ / producer. He is a member of Lot49 records.

A seasoned veteran, Coombs first hit the DJ slopes in 1989, bathing himself in the acid house scene at parties around London and Cambridge. Crucial in shaping his all-encompassing approach to DJing and production, this boundary-less approach would become Coombs' trademark, mixing up breaks, house, electro, techno and acid with dexterous assurance.

When he is not in the producers chair, Coombs regularly tours all corners of the globe and is a bona-fide fan favourite throughout Europe, the USA, Australia, Asia and of course the UK. His popularity has also ensured his repeat appearance at infamous festival 'The Burning Man' in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada.

Syd is one of the longest running fun creators in the Bay Area dance music and underground arts scene. He's been called a "Renaissance man of the West Coast scene", and with good reason. The founder of the legendary Opulent Temple collective, best known for their premierre sound stage at Burning Man, Board Member and key producer of the San Francisco LovEvolution event (formerly known as LoveFest & Love Parade), founder of Opel Productions, throwing club events and 'parties with purpose' in San Francisco for 10+ years, a child psychologist with a Doctorate in transpersonal psychology, a music producer, blogger on social issues, and of course - a DJ.

On the DJ tip, Syd is one of the West Coast's top talents, consistently being voted in the Top 10 San Francisco Dream Team poll, and playing the biggest events in California party land. Playing a versatile range of electro house breaks, and tech funk,, he's been personally tapped to open and close for the varied likes of Underworld, Moby, Tiesto, Stanton Warriors, Armin Van Burren, and the list goes on. Syd knows what to do in any situation to bring the universal vibe of dance music. His debut single 'Who Are You' on Groove Quest, recently cracked the crowded Top 30 electro house chart on Beatport. His sets are known for walking the fine line between the gritty and the pretty, and he has a musical range seldom seen in party land.

Kimba is a fresh face and has been gracing the decks with her warrior-like presence throughout California from her home in San Francisco throughout the West coast from San diego to Seattle and everywhere in between. Kimba brings a sound best described as Elegant Warrior Breaks, Drum&Bass & Techno ~ a fusion of Sweet and Heavy sounds programmed to take you on a journey through every mix. She brings deep dark basslines intertwined with melodic and musical themes to touch a cord in every dancer. Kimba always finds a way to incorporate the musical and instrumental nature of her first
influences from Deep House into the heavy forces of bass, breakbeats, drum&bass and even techno. Getting people onto the dancefloor and seeing smiling, dancing people is really what makes her happy to be a DJ.
