Lee Burton aka Liberto released his debut album Lullaby for Klik Records in 2006. His warm, deep tech-house sound received high praise in the Greek and international music press alongside the interest of some of the most important names in the electronic music scene. As a result, the following years were productive for Liberto, with releases, remixes and collaborations with labels such as Trapez, Plastic City, Material, Playmobil, Syndikaat and the co-foundation of the record label Material with Michael Safras. In 2009 he started releasing music under the name Lee Burton, making recordings for labels such as Orpheas, Material and Plastic City in addition to making appearances in festivals and clubs. In 2012, Lee Burton returns with his second album project, Busy Days For Fools. Burton manages to escape from the sound of Lullaby, creating a unique output that combines the sound of German electronica with a Greek temperament and a South American laid-back feeling. Busy Days For Fools is the stoner side of electronica. Lee Burton produced the album himself, spending a whole year in his personal studio using new production techniques and recordings such as various kinds of microphones, ranging from the classic condenser microphone, cell phone microphone and even the microphone from a VHS camera. Electronic sounds were created with vintage analog equipment but also with live recordings of noises using various objects as well as music instruments. The result is a warm, natural and analog-sounding album, drawing from influences from across the electronic scene and also pulling ideas from lo-fi rock, blues, folk, jazz and everyday life.
