DJ Leon C
“Purveyor of deep, infectious dance grooves and a feel-good atmosphere.”
That’s how Leon describes himself as a DJ. Never afraid to go too deep, his emotive musical selections are his own therapy. Having grown up on his DJ father’s eclectic combination of funk music ( Earth wind & fire, Chic) , European electronica (Kraftwork, Tangerine Dream), synth-infused 80s music (Depeche Mode, Gary Numan)… and his Mother love of Progressive rock ( Pink Floyd , Genesis and ELP)all which became infused with his own love for both House and Dance Music, Leon ended up with quite a mixed spectrum of musical influence. Today, this translates into sets where he picks apart and infuses together all the pieces of this music that he loves best: beautiful synth work, ethereal backdrops, brooding bass lines, and vocal hooks… all on top of a pronounced foot-shuffling house beat.
A very active member of his local community, Leon is no stranger to the ups-and-downs of the Essex music scene. Though he loves playing in nightclubs, Festivals and special events, his love for music goes beyond the spectrum of mixing tunes. As a promoter and radio DJ, he has found plenty of ways to express himself musically.
“For me, it’s all about mood and a deep, hypnotic groove… playing those tracks that get you tapping your feet and nodding your head without you realizing it and taking you back to the great days, regardless of genre, tempo, style, or release date, But nothing beats 89-99 Dance Music…
