Helming the decks of local clubs and underground venues, AMPD! resident Leks has long been a pillar of New York's dance music scene. This year, Leks takes his passion for music that he's so often showcased in the DJ booth and brings it into the studio, releasing his debut production on Half Seas Over with two remixes to Ray Okpara and Mobius Strum's 'It's Down the Block.' Stay tuned for more from this talented New York artist, as he teams up with Inxec to form the Man vs. Groove production project. Their first release together is coming out on Culprit Records later this year.
Leks has also shared the decks with Lee Burridge, Reboot, Paco Osuna, Clive Henry, Melon, Nick Curly, Hugo, Audiofly, DJ T, Behrouz, Evil Eddie Richards, Simon Baker, Radio Slave and is also responsible for throwing New York's underground party destination called AMPD!. AMPD! has been held at speakeasys and lofts around NYC. Guests so far have been Soul Clap, Lauhaus, Masomenos, Soul Minority, Inxec, Brothers' Vibe, Kabuto & Koji, Bill Patrick, Crazy Larry, Neil Aline and Alexi Delano.
