Newcastle upon Tyne, Tyne and Wear, UK House Tech House Progressive House +3

Leo Ryan is a DJ currently based in Newcastle. Citing his primary influences from many house artists and producers, he is inspired by Artists such as Mark Knight, Julio Bashmore, Mark Kinchen, A-Trak, Armand Van Helden, Frankie Knuckles and Carl Craig. Although he is confident DJing almost any genre, his current focus lies with tech house and deep house.
He has held down residencies in Label Newcastle. But has also played a number of other reknowned venues including Topshop/Topman/Bijoux/Bambu and is due to take command of the upstairs deep/tech room at Warehau5 in Cosmic Ballroom mid November.
His attendance at events everywhere from Newcastle Warehouses and the beaches of Brighton to superclubs such as Pacha have allowed him to identify his own unique sound. One of the most pivotal points of his career as a DJ was attending Fatboy Slim's Big Beach Bootique in the Amex Stadium, 2011. This allowed him to realise that the foremost aim of DJing is to have a party with your crowd. This is what he aims to do in every performance.
His style is built on multi-layered entertainment as opposed to the current trend of big 'EDM' style drops. Feeling the crowd and song selection is a part of his ammunition he prides himself upon. He is also open format and can mix using CDs, Vinyl and of course many other interfaces such as Traktor, an avenue he is currently exploring.
This December, he is set to return home to Ireland after four years around the UK. 2014 promises to be a pivotal year for the young DJ, with no fewer than three big project in the pipeline. Keep your eyes, peeled and enjoy the mixes, sets, crowd interaction and edits/remixes.
For the love of house!
