Lee Walker recently was awarded “Best Remix” for his edit of DJ Deeon’s “Freak Like Me” which was a co-release between Ministry of Sound and Defected Records. The awards were hosted by DJ Mag and in the category of Best of British Awards. The track features heavy bass lines paired with groovy vocals from the UK Dance Queen Katy B. The combination of the two resulted in one of the hottest house tracks of 2016. The track was first featured on Annie Mac’s “Hottest Record” and Pete Tong’s “Essential New Tune” the same night and catapulted Walker into house stardom. Lee Walker’s 2016 changed immediately due to this track, going from the complete bedroom producer for 7 years to being an over night sensation.
He recently sat down to with Point Blank and went over what it was like waking up to a record deal, what his plans for the future are, and gave advise for young aspiring producers. If you want an inside look on what it’s like to become successful in the industry from his perspective and how it all happened to him, this interview will shed light onto what it takes to become and overnight success and how to go about reaching out to the right people to get your music heard and hopefully signed.
