LIVE: WEDNESDAYS TIME: 7pm-9pm DJ: LEOPOLD LOCATION: LONDON, UK MUSIC: #DISCO
Leopold is a DJ and radio host based in North London, with a true passion for music of all shapes and forms. Having been exposed to a lot of soul and jazz at a young age, this influence has been ever-present since he first put a needle to a record in 2012.
Developing a love for the underground side of house, disco and funk during his university years in Leeds, it spurred the start of a vinyl obsession. Heavily influenced by the Detroit sound and aesthetic, Leopold fused this with his funk sensibilities and began honing a unique style on the decks, full of energy, emotion and groove.
A short stint working at east London’s now renowned NTS radio led him to later host his own show, ‘Natural Element’, now a monthly session on Radar Radio. The show is a feel good journey into his expansive taste, blurring genre boundaries and merging the old with the new.
Leopold is slowly but surely paying his dues, holding residencies at spots such as The Queen of Hoxton, The Bermondsey Yard Café, Shelter Club and Lockside Camden. An integral part of rising cosmic collective ‘DISCOFUNK’, he also co-runs a monthly night, ‘Resonate’, which has got off to a great start.
