Why Be

Tobias Lee is a Korean-born, Danish-raised, and Berlin / Copenhagen-based producer and DJ, and the co-founder of experimental label Yegorka. After intentionally spending years on the fringes of experimental dance music, Lee’s critically acclaimed Snipestreet EP — released on Rabit’s Halcyon Veil — saw him firmly establish himself as a formidable emergent voice in dance music's larger conversation.

Lee's sound both on record and behind the CDJs defies easy compartmentalisation: if anything, it is defined by its visceral uncategorisability. He's as likely to draw on breaks and R&B as instrumental grime, but it's Lee's radically singular approach to putting it all together that makes him so exciting. Even if the ingredients are familiar, the end product never is: his hectic, cathartic, and uncompromising style ultimately stands completely in its own lane.
