4 To The Floor presents Leonidas & Kiko Navarro
We are back in the Book Club for MAY with not just one but TWO special guests.
First is Leonidas, a man of exquisite musical tastes and attention to sound. DJing since aged 15 and organising his first party at the age of 16 – he started as he meant to go on, doing just that. He was one of the first DJs to mix jazzy and funky house alongside jazz-funk and disco in mid 90s Soho, holding residencies at Mondo, Freedom Bar and later The Player and Match Bar in the naughties.
More recently he has guested at Beauty and the Beat, held a residency at pop-up cocktail bar Peckham Springs while putting on his own lovetoparty events, either using his own audiophile sound system or at the much respected “Brilliant Corners” in Dalston.
On the production side, Leonidas has been experimenting with various synths, drum machines and guitars since he was a teenager and with music production tools since the 90s. Debut release “Sequential EP” came out on Kay Suzuki’s round in motion label in 2012 and was followed up with a collaboration with Kay on house EP “Synqlock vol I” a year later. Both EPs won plaudits among respected musicians and DJs such as Manuel Gottsching, Theo Parrish and Pepe Bradock, as did his 2 UK house EPs with collaborator and label owner Hobbes – (“Machines, Tapes & Electronic Setups” and “Mo Machines”).
He has 2 forthcoming vinyl releases: his track “Shesha” is to be featured on the next vinyl from YAM records, due at the start of June, and his 3rd vinyl EP with Hobbes is due this summer, with more material on the way.
Also joining us on the night will be Kiko Navarro – a name that needs little introduction. One time resident at both Pacha and Space in Ibiza, you would have heard many of his productions released on such labels as Local Talk, Large, Defected, Pacha and Yoruba records.
Currently promoting his new album “Everything happens for a reason” featuring Julie McKnight (“Finally”), Boris Dlugosch and local London talent Hanlei this will be an opportunity to hear new material as well as his inimitable DJ set that makes him one of the most sought after DJs around the world.
