Derek Lee

Derek is one of the co-founders of the Refuge Music YEG crew which is a group of Edmonton DJs and producers that have been running house and techno events in Edmonton since 2012.

The genesis of the Refuge crew back in 2012 was through renegade outdoor electronic music parties started initially by Derek and fellow Refuge co-founder Eric Fraser after finding that there were few venues willing to host a more underground house and techno sound. After booking shows for the following few years and adding a few more members into the Refuge crew, the same renegade attitude and vision ultimately led Derek to establish a pop-up venue space due to continued dis-satisfaction with existing Edmonton venues. Inspiration from travels and venues abroad also gave Derek the push to try and create something new from scratch and ignite a new fire in the Edmonton electronic music scene.
