Rabella, born and raised in beautiful East Friesland in Emden, first came into contact with house and techno thanks to her work in Ecuador and later in Barcelona, Spain. In 2014 she moved to Berlin and the music in clubs like the Kater Blau & the Sisyphos didn’t let her go.
In the beginning she was just an enthusiastic track collector, but in 2016 she met Alexander Weinstein, the organizer of the „Letzte Wiese“. She started to play with him and played her first gigs at the festival.
Since then it has continued unstoppably, as she has already played in many of Berlin’s clubs.
This is mainly due to her unique track selection and her captivating and enchanting way behind the DJ desk. Those who experience her dance, those who see her are happy with her and those who book her book her again!
Of course she’s also going to the studio now, so her first release on the upcoming label „Letzte Wiese Musik“ is planned for the end of the year.
It was 1986. Two record players, one mixer. At his own birthday party, everything that has remained an integral part of his life to this day began. Many private celebrations and further 11 years, various cassette decks, CD’s and records later it was in the year 1997 then finally so far: the first club appearance! This was in the H2O2 in Florence. And it should not remain his last. Because in the next seven years countless other Florentine clubs could be happy about his presence behind the decks, among them the Exmud and the Tenax, until JAMA finally went to the city, which welcomed him warmly and never really let him go again.
2004 Berlin. BAR 25! It was probably one of the most legendary and mystical clubs of this city, where JAMA was allowed to call itself Resident-DJ right from the first day. This – and of course his own authentic sound – paved his way through a club landscape that could hardly be more diverse. Sisyphos, Watergate, Suicide Circus and Der Salon – Zur Wilden Renate are just a few stops on his long journey.
In the meantime we are writing the year 2017. Still: Berlin. And its development knows no boundaries. Since January of this year, JAMA has also been at the start with his own productions and recorded his first release „Heim EP“ on 13.01.2017 directly on Katermukke, the label of its new home „Kater Blau“.
He has been behind the decks for over 30 years now. Many clubs, many countries, many radiant faces and dancing people, whom he has already made happy with his music. And it goes on. Always further.
Berlin, the turn of Berlins reunion was attended by a massive cultural development of the capital city in the 90’s which the native-born east Berliner Lee Jokes closely witnessed from its beginnings. The nightlife of Berlin blossomed, electronic music was in literally everyones ears, everybody was dancing. The rest is history. So one day one thing lead to another when Lee Jokes in the year of 1994 took his step from the dance floor to behind the controls.
It took six years and countless gigs till he began to implement his vision of high quality music for his peers in own productions. The turn to the twenty first century also marked the beginning of his own series of events called „Soundpendler“ which took place in locations like MS Edelweiss, Club XS or at 80dB.
The year of 2009, Organic Live Art Records (O.L.A Records) is born and serves him platform for his music and the artists in his surrounding. Next to creative releases the focus of his label work also lies on hosting regular Showcases and his online radio show „JokeBox“.
In the meanwhile more than just arrived in Berlins scene he releases his own creations on labels like Katermukke, Bar 25 Music, Lordag Records, Me! Records and Default Machine.
And also en route, away from his local realm he regularly inspires international audience when he turns his passion in sets that seem to be nearly never ending.
Ground-breaking, honest and hypnotic driving. These properties adumbrate more or less what Lee Jokes music is affected by.
Infected in 1995, dancing to endless sessions at VOXXX Club (now Weltecho | Oscar e.V.) and involved ever since in music production, coding and collecting vinyl with a focus on straight percussive patterns, funky grooves and jazzy techno. This is the cornerstone of his style.
In 2005 he had his first official appearance at Bunte Republik Neustadt (BRN) Dresden CDR-Club playing his interpretation of percussive deep techno. There was a live percussion band playing and his turntables changed from vinyl spinners to an crazy percussion instrument playing in company with the band. Thats what it’s all about, they asked him to become a resident. He answered the call and played every weekend in Club der Republik Dresden from 2005 to 2008 together with Nic Dancer.
During this time he played many legendary all night long b2b sessions with HGN, Sören Matschiste, Spunky, Jekyll & Hyde, Clitclutcher (aka Andreas Pionty), Marek Hemmann, Daniel Stefanik, Insect O, Moritz Schlieb and many others. Followed by gigs in Koralle, Erdbeerdisko, and Schleife. An 9 hours straight vinyl set making them wet? No problem!
By 2007 he was masterminding a 3000+ people event bringing the whole Frankfurt Main „U60311“ crew together on three huge buses to Dresden, with artists like George Perry (SpaceNight TV), Peter Latino (U-Booking), Coline and others connecting the German scene in a unique way like never before.
There is a certain beauty in his sets that brings his audience together. The last years he was a resident at Chalet Club Berlin. It brings a smile to his face when the dancefloor is full of emotion and moving as one, like a little kid playing with their favourite toy.
A 2 hour live set can easily turn into a sweaty 5 hour session, like in 2018 in Beate Uwe where the club stayed open an extra three hours just for him. Then there was that time when Boiler Room asked him if he can stop his set because the crowd wouldn’t leave to go to the main floor – we wont say which major DJ was playing there.. But we guarantee, he will never play Boiler Room – on purpose!
As a producer he took his time, learning how to code his own apps and plugins for visuals and music production, and building his own studio. We are proud to have him on board as an essential part of O.L.A. Records, he is working on his first EP with us due out in 2019. Stay tuned, as he is preparing for his new live set with lots of unreleased material also.
