QUANTUM / X9 [Reverb Sessions.GR-insert recordings-RandomAccessRecordings.MI]
Leon is an engineer and has worked on projects such as the aviation Black box
but the main expresion of his feelings and emotions are
driven by his passion for electronic “technology” music, Djing, production and the exploration of sound formations.
He began djing at house parties during the mid nineties mixing jungle and break beat
in the southern suberbs of Athens and when he found a chance to break in to the club sceen
of electronic music it was in North East of England where he landed on a group of
talented artists representing the underground elctronic techno sceen in that part of the UK.
He joined Insert records in ’98 and had the chance to rock the beat with quality techno sounds
and show his talent with artists like Oliver-Ho (Blueprint/Meta), Richie Harvey (User/Abuser),
Ben Sims (Theory/ Killabite), Charlie Hall (Pro-Jex / Drum Club) Ian Void (Gueshky)
spinning in the house.This was a huge experiance for Leon and soon he headlined
in several clubs and events with even guests like Jiles Petterson rockin the dancefloor.
In 2002 he joined Modular expansion(modularexpansion.gr) in Athens Greece signing
with purpose to support and develop the underground techno sceene in his home town;
With several projects already successfully been introduced in the past by Modular to support
the Athenean electronic sceene such as the Modular Expansion & the later Reverb Sessions
Techno Events covering a broad range of electronic music from deep soul techno house to electro and 4 to the floor
techno dance frenzee anthems.
Quantum played in most of the Athenean dance clubs supporting underground electronic music after 2002.
His ability to drop records with the energy to break down the sound and build it up
to drive the dancefloor to what a proper party realy looks like is the key to mixing he says. “Creativity timing and skill
with a pair of MK2s and a bag of quality records. Djing is like being a cheff in a very nice restaurant..”
Guests of the likes of David Tarrida from Tresor,ex Bellboy main man Chris Cowe, Dj Rolando
all the way from Detroit and U.R., new big hit name Alex Cowalski and Daren Price a man with
no introductions from Underworld headlined in the Modular events and late Reverb Sessions events making the parties
