Wipe The Needle aka Lee Gomez started producing around 1993 in the jungle scene but a chance meeting at a recording studio in 2005 was the birthplace of Wipe The needle. The then duo consisting of Lee Gomez and Mikael Nybom would go on to record for some highly respected labels like Slip N Slide, Deeply Rooted House, and Raw Fusion before they split 2013. Lee continued the Wipe The Needle brand as solo artist to this day working with some of the best vocalists in the game like Josh Milan, Kenny Bobien and Dawn Tallman.
His latest release see’s him heading up the second part of Local Talk’s ace 13 Years Later Compilation with his track Light Years Away which we premiered a few days ago here.
