Drawing from a carefully selected palate of varying genres, Leon always brings something new to the dance floor. With an uncanny ability to read his audience, Leon J tastefully challenges your aural experience with sounds ranging from Techno, Minimal and Tech-house, to Dubstep, Breaks, and Progressive House. Leon J also reaches across genres when performing under his “Mister White” alias - listeners might hear classic rock, blues, funk, punk, hip-hop, soul, 80’s, 90’s, pop, or electronica. Leon J has been host to countless nightlife events at many leading nightclubs, and has been a featured artist for numerous special events and internet radio shows throughout the last decade. With a talent hard to ignore, he is the requested opening act for The Crystal Method at every Minnesota appearance since 2005, and for BT since 2007.
