Bio-

Leo has a knack for conjuring insatiable grooves out of his machines. Using a collection of classic synths, drum machines, and sequencers, Leo crafts classic-leaning house with an indescribable x-factor—his live sets and studio jams are hypnotizing, groove-led rides that are equally captivating and dance-inducing.

Although he's been releasing since 2013, it was two releases in 2015, "Joy Misery" on VELVET and an unknown artist EP on his own Uniile, that really put his name on the map—to give you an idea of the impact of Uniile 1, the cheapest the record is selling for on Discogs is $198 and "You Got The Funk," a track from the EP, has had over 1 million views on YouTube. You'd still be forgiven, however, to not instantly recognize his name; even with the runaway success of these records, Leo has kept a low profile, there's scarce information online and all but one of his records are short-run vinyl-only releases. The latest of those releases, IILE 01, kicked off his IILE imprint in June of last year, and shortly after, Leo was signed on as a resident at Paris' Concrete, joining a stable of residents that includes Cabanne, Antigone, François X, Shlømo, Ben Vedren, Lowris, and Behzad & Amarou—a move that will undoubtedly open up his music to a wider audience.
