CLUB BADD – THE NEW ALBUM FROM LARRY TEE RELEASE DATE: MAY 5TH (ULTRA RECORDS)
Welcome To Club Badd!
Club Badd is the name of New York nightclub legend Larry Tee’s upcoming album which is set for release on May 5th via electronic imprint, Ultra Records. This two disc set features some of the world’s most over-sized personalities and has much more in common with the You Tube generation than it does yesterday’s dance music compilation. With appearances by Princess Superstar, Perez Hilton, Amanda Lepore, Herve’, Roxy Cottontail, Sébastien Léger, Tomboy, Jodie Harsh, Princess Julia, Christopher Just, Mel Merio, Jeffree Star, and 7-year-old video star Amanita, it is by far the most outrageous collection EVER!
The Club Badd assault began with the UK single release of his collaboration with Princess Superstar called “Licky.” Having already charted as a hit in Germany and Australia, the package features slamming mixes by Hervé, Vandalism, Sébastien Léger, Lutzenkirchen, Kris Menace, Product.01, and Act Yo Age. It has been played by everyone: from Justice, Pete Tong, Erol Alkan, Armand Van Helden, Laurent Garnier, Judge Jules to Junior Sanchez (it’s on his latest compilation). Club Badd is not only a dance party album extraordinaire, but it also sums up Larry Tee’s totally twisted vision!
Larry Tee hails from Atlanta, Georgia where he was friends with REM and his first group, The Fans, produced the B-52s’ first independent single “Rock Lobster/52 Girls.” He moved to NYC with fellow Atlantans RuPaul and Lady Bunny and quickly took over the NYC club scene with his epic party, Love Machine. He started and named the infamous DISCO 2000 of Party Monster movie fame, DJ’ed the Roxy weekly, and co-wrote the Billboard Top 40 song; Rupaul’s “Supermodel (You Better Work).” In 1997 Larry Tee made the decision to get clean from drugs and alcohol and decided to re-examine his life and career. He turned to music for inspiration and championed a new sound and movement, which became the Electroclash phenomena. He created the term “Electroclash” for his festivals in 2001/2002 (it’s in the Oxford English Dictionary) which helped launch the careers of Scissor Sisters, Felix Da Housecat, 2 Many DJs/Soulwax, Peaches and many more.
Fast forward to 2008 and we see Larry Tee traveling all over the world bringing his unique sound and exclusive tracks to festivals and nightclubs worldwide. He DJed the Perez Hilton party at SXSW, which helped launch the career of Katy Perry (and also featured N.E.R.D), plus he has played alongside Kraftwerk, Gorillaz, New Order, LCD Soundsystem, Nick Cave, Chemical Brothers, Mark Ronson and Fatboy Slim in festivals such as Bennicassim, Global Gathering, Mysterylands, Primavera, and Summercase and his international schedule has grown with his Beatport success (The Crooker’s has his new single in their Top 10 Beatport). New videos for “Licky”, “I Love U”, and for the Perez Hilton track, “My Penis”, as well as an exclusive re-edit of Kelly’s “Shoes” for youtube.com give the album a visual side like no other album today! The next single, “I Love U”, featuring 7-year-old Amanita, has already been used to open the MSTKRFT show, with Ghostface Killa MCing over it remixed by Bart B More, Christopher Just and The Bulgarian, and has just been released worldwide.
Club Badd is set to be the “Girls Gone Wild” of 2009, meaning the runaway surprise hit that took the country by storm. Join Club Badd and make this year the year of the Party People!!
