He picked up his musical style whilst touring with the Prod in mid-90’s­ it is a mix of tuff Electrobreaks, old skool samples, Hip Hop, rock and electro.

This is basically a great mash up of breaks n electro style toons, using plenty of familiar hooks, with a good old skool feel.

Heavy on the electro edge and full of funk that rocks the dancefloor.

Leeroy is riding high with his production work, and his DJing – so listen out for his trademark electro, bass, old skool, beats n’ breaks at a club or arena near you!
