Electroclash inventor Larry Tee, who made his name in New York clubland promoting Disco 2000 alongside notorious murderer Michael Alig is not in the forthcoming film about the scene, Party Monster, he told Skrufff this week.

"As far as I'm aware they've eliminated the Larry Tee character from the film," said Larry.

"I am so grateful I'm not in it because I'm clean now and if I was in it, they would have to show that great hulk of ketamined flesh, staggering about in nightclubs. So many great things are happening in my life now, it's not an image that I want to see again. I can't wait to see the movie."

With Macauley Culkin dragging up to play Michael Alig in the Hollywood movie, the media spotlight is likely to focus intensely on the early 90s New York scene, though for Tee his own profile looks set to take off with this year's Miami conference. As well as showcasing his own proteges WIT and Avenue D, he'll be launching a new electroclash CD for house and techno label Moonshine, which he's hoping will introduce electro to a brand new audience.

"It's full of weird, really hard to get tracks that I struggled to get hold of," said Larry.

"It's like a night at Berliniamsburg with all the most ferocious tunes that Moonshine could licence. Since this music is still so hard to get in Middle America, I felt it would be great to get all these artists in all the stores across America."

Larry DJs at Crobar (Miami) at The Electroclash event on March 17 (with the Def Mix showcase downstairs) and launches his Moonshine album on Thursday afternoon (March 20) at Creek Hotel poolside areas, 2360 Collins Avenue (from 2pm).
