In this short artist profile film, we talk to Manchester-born musician and DJ Calum Lee – aka Paleman, as part of our 6 month campaign for Manchester International Festival.
He has won cult status for a series of quietly thrilling releases that have breathed new life into minimal electronic music.
Paleman took his music to another level at Dark Matter - a series of shows curated by BBC 6 Music's Mary Anne Hobbs and commissioned by Manchester International Festival. He created a live show that incorporated his seriously talented jazz drumming, mixed with his classic minimalist electronic sounds.
