Italian Leon’s obsession with house, electro and techno music started at a young age after discovering the music of Todd Terry, Danny Tenaglia and Laurent Garnier – something he still regards as a major influence on his sound to this day.
Renowned DJ, label boss and hit-maker, Leon performs regularly at all major clubs and festivals and holds high-profile residencies such as Marco Carola’s Music On Ibiza, since its inception in 2012, and Cocoricò, the most awarded club in Italy.
Well respected amongst his peers, Leon played alongside the likes of Carl Cox, Danny Tenaglia, Derrick May, Ellen Allien, Jamie Jones, Jeff Mills, Joseph Capriati, Loco Dice, Luciano, Marco Corola, Ricardo Villalobos, Steve Lawler, The Martinez Brothers.
Carving out his sound with releases on Cocoon, 8Bit, Hot Creations, Crosstown Rebels, his tracks get played by the likes of Steve Lawler, Luciano, Carl Cox, Mandy, Loco Dice, Ricardo Villalobos, Tiefschwarz, Matthias Tanzmann.
With more than 15 years experience Djing and a solid international reputation, 2022 marks Leon’s move into a new phase of his career as he announces the launch of his own record label FUTURA. Leon has selected some of the finest artists to create a highly identifiable audio brand, combining the forward thinking sounds of rominimal, minimal-tech and deep tech-house with artists like Janeret, Harry Wills, Sakro, Sublee, Youandewan, Lucio Koko, Priku, Mike D, Liou, Alessio Viggiano and many more, all directly involved in creating the label’s sound and concept.
The brand concept is to deliver quality releases every month along with label nights in London, Naples and Amsterdam, with the FUTURA artists surrounded by forward thinking and hypnotic visuals – to create a positive sense of community amongst the crowd.
It’s about the music, the crowd, the freedom of expression and unity, which were what house music was about originally… whilst giving the party a modern twist, to bring it “back to the future” of electronic music.
