Leama is the globally respected UK electronic melodic house DJ and producer responsible for
several high profile original productions and collaborations which have propelled him to a top 50
positioning in the US URB Magazine DJ Poll and created the platform for a series of global tours
taking the worlds leading dance floors by storm.
With early influences accredited to electronic music dignitaries Sasha and Laurent Garnier along
with rock bands such as Pink Floyd / Tangerine dream , and taking great influence in music from
films, Leama aims to create his own diverse yet universally appealing sound, combining elements
of house, tech-house, deep electronic and nu- progressive along with ambient and breaks,
summed up best by Leama as "electronic'' feel good music.
Beginning his production career back in 1997, early collaborations with Tilt , and Malcolm
McLaren (sex pistols) were invaluable in setting the standard for the quality of his music, which is
evident today both in his solo productions and as one half of melodic progressive house act
Leama & Moor.
His production style uses subtle yet familiar ambient undertones, layering soundscapes and
placing great emphasis on the importance of melody, which is projected on his debut solo
production, 'Melodica'. At it's time of release the track became a particular favourite with maestros
such as Sasha, Dave Seaman, Sander Kleinenberg and Paul Oakenfold, who featured the track
on his highly successful 'Travelling' - Mix Compilation (Perfecto).
Whilst his joint venture with Tilt under the 'Odessi' guise named 'Moments in Space' gained equal critical acclaim and DJ support, the 'Matrix'
based track rocketed it's way onto an impressive accolade of prestigious mix compilations
including: Euphoria - Deep and Chilled, Dave Seaman's - Renaissance Awakeings , and Anthony
Pappas Nu-Breed Mix on Global Underground.
Another project inspired by the silver screen was Leama's massive underground hit 'Requiem for
a Dream', released in 2003 on Perfecto Records. The track went on to receive huge global
support from the likes of Tiesto, Sander Kleinenberg and James Holden and found it's way onto
several major compilations including Tiesto's - Nyana Mix CD , Paul Oakenfolds - Great Wall of
China (perfecto) , and Ministry of Sounds - Trance Nation Future.
As a DJ, Leama has taken his unique sound to many of the worlds leading events including
Muzika in Miami WMC, Pacha in Tel Aviv , MTV parties @ The Cross and Renaissance in the UK,
whilst becoming a regular feature on the South American circuit with regular tours incorporating
Argentina, Aruba, Brazil, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico and Venezuela.
Whilst his iconic status amongst the elite of America's most respected artists remains strong,
Leama's commitments closer to home remain equally impressive as Germany, Greece, Israel,
Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Spain, Finland and The Ukraine are amongst the nations toured
With a heavy ongoing production schedule , 'leama' along with studio partner 'andy moor' have
just released the long awaited debut album 'Leama & Moor - common ground' : featuring deep
electronic film-score pieces and rocking dance-floor tracks. 'Common Ground' has already been
compared to 'zero 7', ' massive attack', and 'ulrich schnuass' and been reviewed as 'Album as the
year'. Mixmag also compared 'common ground' with BT's - IMA debut album.
2005 then saw remixes of Britney Spears - Someday (leama and moor remix), and Tiesto - A tear
in the open (leama and moor remix) hit the shops and cause a stir , thus raising the global
recognition of 'leama's involvment in todays scene.
Next up in 2007/8 are more collaborations (some already work in progress) and remixes of some
high profile artist's plus a couple of new 'leama' singles, all of which will show the more diverse
sound 'leama' has moved into.
One new project already hitting the dance floor’s at the moment is called ‘Grafiti’ , where Leama
has teamed up with his friend and new producer / DJ ‘James Davis.
The pair already have several new singles and remixes completed and receiving support from all
the top DJ’s around.
"I really liked what i was doing with the early 'leama' productions and then the collaborations
too, and even though I liked that kind of music, I have really moved into todays electroninc
sound and performance more, but still combine those elements which make people feel like
putting their hands in the air too. It's an exciting time for me, right now I am influenced from all
kinds of music, from punky electronica to downtempo album music."
