Welcome To Club Badd!
Club Badd is the name of New York nightclub legend Larry Tee’s upcoming album that features some of the world’s most over-sized personalities and is a celebration of the Youtube.com generation. With appearances by Princess Superstar, Perez Hilton, Roxy Cottontail, Amanda LePore, Hervé, Sébastien Léger, Tomboy, Princess Julia, Christopher Just, Mel Merio, Jodie Harsh, Jeffree Star, and 7-year-old video star Amanita, it is by far the most outrageous collection EVER! The Club Badd assault started with the UK single release of his collaboration with Princess Superstar called “Licky.” Already a chart hit in Germany and Australia, it features slamming mixes by Hervé, Vandalism, Sébastian Léger, and Kris Menace as well as a special guest appearance by Santogold on the version used on Steve Aoki’s top 20 Billboard Electronic album. It has been played by everyone: Justice, Erol Alkan, Armand Van Helden, Laurent Garnier, Judge Jools, and Pete Tong. The second single, “I Love U,” is already being used as an intro for Steve Aoki and MSTRKRFT’s live sets with a Ghostface Killer vocal drop, as well as being banged by super-jock Jesse Rose. Club Badd, which is to be released May 5th, is not only a dance party album extraordinaire, but it is also like “You Tube/My Space – The Musical.” It harnesses the energy of the world’s current fascination of all the madness of the internet generation.
Larry Tee hails from Atlanta, Georgia where he was friends with REM and his first group, the Fans, that 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 got 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 the world, bringing his unique sound and exclusive tracks to festivals and nightclubs worldwide. He has played alongside Kraftwerk, The Gorillas, New Order, Mark Ronson, LCD Soundsystem, Nick Cave, Chemical Brothers, and Fatboy Slim in festials like Bennicassim, Global Gathering, Mysterylands, Primavera, and Summercase, and his international schedule has grown with his Beatport success (The Crookers have his new single in their top 10 on Beatport). New videos for “Licky”, "I Love U”, “Hipster Girl,” a track with Perez Hilton, as well as an exclusive re-edit of Kelly’s infamous YouTube smash “Shoes” give the album a visual side like no other today! The next single, “I Love U,” featuring 7-year-old Amanita has already been 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!!
