DAVE LEE personifies that type of superfan turned musical guide to multiple genres, eras, and artists.

Above all he’s someone who loves underground dance music, and that’s been the hallmark of his career as a DJ, music artist, label owner, and promoter. Lee has almost 1200 production and writing credits to his name, and along the way he’s released hundreds of singles, enjoyed chart hits (having never gone looking for one), scores of albums, over 170 remixes and many now-legendary compilations. A hugely respected imprint with a global fanbase, in addition to reaching 300 releases, Z Records celebrated its 30th anniversary in 2019.

Formerly known as Joey Negro (Latin American pronunciation), Dave recently decided to discontinue the latter pseudonym. Although it had unwittingly became one of his most popular monikers, Lee originally chose the name for a record he released on New York label Nu Groove in 1990, so it would fit alongside the American DJs and producers who were releasing the music he loved. On 21st July 2020, Dave announced he would no longer release new music or projects under the name Joey Negro, and explained the background to the name’s origins, and his decision to stop using it, via a statement on Facebook.

Dave’s new single ‘Power Of The Mind’ (feat. Billy Valentine) is out now. The eagerly anticipated cut, featuring a vintage soul vocal from Billy Valentine, also happens to be Z Records 300th release, a phenomenal milestone for an independent label. This single follows the compilation album ‘Breaking The Beats: A personal selection of West London sounds’, compiled by Dave Lee and Will Fox. ‘Breaking The Beats…’ brings together the pair’s pick of some of the West London scene’s greatest tracks and remixes, featuring Bugz In The Attic, 4 Hero, Sunburst Band, Jazzanova, Atjazz, and many more.

For his exclusive Top 10, Dave’s selected Melba Moore, Melvo Baptiste, Tom Misch and Yussef Dayes, and many more. Check out the playlist below.

Boy, 12, and tour guide have limbs ripped off in Egypt shark attack

An Oceanic Whitetip shark, which is thought to have attacked the group in the Red Sea (Picture: Getty Images) A 12-year-old boy lost an arm and an Egyptian tour guide a leg in a shark attack off the coast of Egypt. Two tourists, a mother and son, and their tour guide were snorkelling in the Red Sea in the resort of Sharm El-Sheikh when the attack happened, the country’s Environment Ministry said. They were rushed to hospital. An initial investigation into Sunday’s attack at Ras Mohammed National Park showed it involved a two-meter (six-foot) long Oceanic Whitetip shark, the ministry added. The boy is now in intensive care and surgery failed to save his arm, according to Ukraine’s State Agency for the Development of Tourism. An anonymous Egyptian health official said the guide had lost a leg, while the mother suffered minor injuries. Officials have closed the area of the national park where the attack took place. Shark attacks have been rare in the Red Sea coastal region of Egypt i..

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe ‘told to pack bag for prison return’ over new charge

Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe could spend years more in jail (Picture: PA) A British-Iranian mother who has been detained in Iran since 2016 has been summoned to court to face fresh charges, according to her family. Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe, who was released to house arrest in March due to the coronavirus outbreak, was told to ‘pack a bag’ as she would be returning to prison after the hearing on Monday, her husband claims. The mother-of-one is nearing the end of a five-year sentence over allegations of plotting to overthrow the Iranian government. She has always denied the charges. The summons came on Tuesday after it emerged that a UK court hearing on a debt owed to Iran, due to start on November 3, had been postponed for six months. Her husband Richard Ratcliffe said: ‘We don’t know what will happen on Monday, we don’t know how far and how soon they will take forward their prison threat. ‘But we do know that the Revolutionary Guard are signalling something to the British governme..
