Paving the way for Lee Foss’s upcoming debut full length Alchemy is “Living In The City” Leaning heavily on analog synths and drum machines, “Living In The City” features vocals from first time collaborator Spencer Nezey and is a prime example of what’s to come from Alchemy next month.
The track takes the listener on a aural journey through a night out in the city and reminds them of the moments that make up a good night out. After Curtiss dropped a synth-drenched remix of Foss' "The Gift" last summer, this song marks the first official collaboration between the two Lees and it’s as funky and melodic as we have come to expect from both producers over the years. Drawing significance from the association with spiritual awakening, synchronicity, and spiritual fulfillment, the track is set for release on 03/17 on Emerald City alongside remixes from house stalwart MK and buzzing producer Detlef.

Through DJ sets that mine the depths of dance music’s history and live PAs that pave the way to its future, Lee has showcased his inimitable sound in the world’s most esteemed clubs—to name just a few: Circo Loco, DC10, and Fabric London...
