Leo Zero

Is probably best known for his remixes of global acts like Madonna, Florence & The Machine, Lana Del Rey, Bryan Ferry & Paul Weller to name but a few. But prior to this he’s spent many years on the underground house scene, running parties, record labels, DJing, and learning the ropes in the studio.

Rewind back 20+ years and Leo was there right at the birth of House and Techno…in ‘86-87 spending his dinner money on the latest imports from Chicago and Detroit and listening to the first pirate radio shows spawning this brand new sound.

Two years later, the rest of the country had caught up, Acid House had kicked in, and Leo found himself in Ibiza right in the thick of it all. Cafe Del Mar, Amnesia, Ku, Es Paradis, Glory’s, Exstasis, Summum, Angels and a newly opened Space all sowed the seeds for a decade club promoting back in London and all over the world with the legendary Faith
and Soulsonic parties, the latter of which saw him host parties for Vivienne Westwood and Alexander McQueen.

Around this time Leo also made his first auspicious waves in the production world, turning heads with his disco edit label Easter Bay, which counted DJ Harvey and Idjut Boys as fans. Leo went on to form Dab Hands with Mark Wilkinson and Richard Searle in 2004, with the trio remixing Lou Reed and David Bowie’s “Satellite of Love” which gave them a top ten smash and a Miami buzz chart no.1. He’s also flexed his musical muscle as a member of psychedelic band A Mountain of One, writing and producing their first album ‘Collected Works’ in 2007.

Leo has also released three albums – the first a compilation called ‘Disconnect’ on Strut Records released in 2010, which featured tracks that had influenced Leo from all musical genres. His second was his first artist album ‘Acid Life’ released in 2012, and gained great reviews from Mixmag to Trax, Groove in Berlin and many other media platforms. Another album ‘Chops’ was released in the same year, Leo is very industrious!

Leo’s talent hasn’t ever been confined to music, either. He’s been involved in flyer/sleeve art for most of his natural life having worked with Junior Boys Own, Heavenly Records, Electric Stew, Dazed & Confused and Time Out. He has also exhibited at Jam at the Barbican and helped put together books on flyers for Thames & Hudson, as well as the hugely successful Golden Sun Movement exhibitions in London and Berlin.

Leo’s production skills are second to none, combining cutting edge and analogue techniques, which have put him in the right place for major label production projects, and artist development.
