When he was younger, he was immersed in music by seeing his father, a sound engineer, who had been building his own synthesizers since the 1970s. As a tribute, he used one of these unique
synthesizers on a title of the disc.
With the release of Rokanbo on Cracki Records, LeonxLeon signs a mature EP with the
influence of different styles.
The first eponymous title is a manifesto mixing Acid, House and Zouk. As soon as we
launch the track, the pop & acid 80's sounds takes us to an other world...
The other parts of the Ep don't leave us in the lurch! Formant Sweep delivers a soft and
groovy bass that responds to an endless, spatial synthetic takeoff. On Red Footpath, the
harder kick cleverly blends with an atmospheric blanket and a bright, lively flute solo
straight from an abandoned piece of bamboo on a deserted beach. After that, Jungle Juice
lets a crazy keyboard solo resonate in the middle of tropical fauna and flora, and finally on
Horizon, the Ep ends in beauty with an airy atmosphere.
Through all these tracks, Rokanbo EP offers us a clever contrast between synthetic notes
and the warmth of tropical groove, and places our gaze towards the horizon, seeking the
groove to disturb its line on the infinite sea.
