Techno Artist Of The Week – Leon

Artist Of The Week – Leon

This week we thought we would feature someone who is very much on the rise & is about to kick off his residency at Marco Carola’s Music On in Ibiza this coming Friday. 

After a superb two-day Music On festival in Amsterdam, the family returns to their beloved Ibiza. And to give the starting signal for the seventh season, what better than five of Music On’s emblematic artists: Marco Carola, Stacey Pullen, Leon, Joey Daniel and Neverdogs.

LEON hails from Italy & has been making major waves in the house scene since his breakthrough at the beginning of 2009. He has carved out quite a reputation in such a short period of time. Releases for Steve Lawler’s Viva imprint kicked things off, followed by releases with Nick Curly’s much talked about Cecille label in Manheim, and the highly successful house stamp ReBirth records in Italy as well as remixes for artists Audiofly, Felipe Valenzuela & Ali Nasser. If that wasn’t enough Leon’s track ‘Rain In Rio’ was recently licensed to Cocoon’s ‘Green & Blue compilation’.

His music is getting support from all the major players right now. Steve Lawler, Luciano, Carl Cox, MANDY, Loco Dice, Ricardo Villalobos, Tiefschwarz, Matthias Tanzmann and many more are all fans of Leon’s work.

Leon

Born and raised in Teramo near Rome Leon’s obsession with house music started at a young age after discovering the music of Danny Tenaglia, Todd Terry & Laurent Garnier – something he still regards as a major influence on his sound to this day. 

With over 10 years experience now behind the decks, its not hard to see why LEON’s DJ skills have been sought out by  some of the worlds most famous clubs such as Cocorico in Italy, Pacha & Cielo in New York, Ministry Of Sound in London, Zouk – Singapore, Arma 17 Moscow, Sunwaves Romania, Monza Frankfurt and many many more.

Since 2012 Leon has been part of Marco Carola’s highly succesful Crew and Party called Music On, he has played every Music On show around the world including their residency in ibiza. This Friday, May 18th Music On kicks off its seventh season at Amnesia Ibiza!

Tomorrow, his “Power To The People” EP  will be out on Mother Recordings (in collaboration with Shaf Huse), while he is also set to release on Sola Rec and Crosstown Rebels. 

Here are 4 of our favorite Techno and Tech House Productions by Leon. Support the artists, its all about the music…

QUOTE OF THE DAY!

Quote by Derrick May

The music is just like Detroit, a complete mistake. It’s like George Clinton and Kraftwerk are stuck in an elevator with only a sequencer to keep them company.
