After a whole year away, the Ramsgate Soul Train returns this Summer with a very special guest: Simon Lee of Faze Action!
Faze Action are one of the few acts, in the modern disco world, who write and create original music. Alongside RST residents DJ Hooch and Jeff Levy, this will be one hell of a party…
Simon Lee along with his brother Robin Lee are Faze Action. They have been writing, producing, playing live and DJing for over 20 years and have released 5 critically acclaimed artist LPs and countless remixes, making them one of the most credible and in demand original artists within the growing Disco, House and Balearic scene.
Their early successes, included ‘In the Trees’ that features Robin’s classical ‘cello, and ‘Disco Motion’, became instant classics on the Nuphonic label and changed the musical landscape at the time, paving the way for the Disco revival of today. The track became an instant underground classic, garnering support from Francois K and Frankie Knuckles. This set them up for the next release; ‘In The Trees’, which went on to become recognised as one of the UK’s classic house records, linking Faze Action to the birth of House and Disco in the UK.
Through the 90’s, 00’s and up to the present day, Faze Action have released an impressive amount of credible original music, including their stunning Afro, Disco, House track, ‘Kariba’ with Zimbabwean artist Zeke Manyika and ‘Samba’, with Nina Miranda, from their ‘Moving Cities’ LP.
Not content with writing and producing new music, Simon and Robin are in demand as DJs and have criss crossed the globe playing at festivals and clubs with their trademark sets joining the dots between Disco, Afro, Balearic and beyond. They are also avid record collectors stating that “It’s a constant source of inspiration for writing and our DJ sets”. This has culminated in a number of compilations including “Under the Influence Vol. 7” for Joey Negro’s Z records, which was released in 2019.
