Leon Atolagbe, known for his live and visual radio show on ReelhouseTV, is a Swansea, UK based DJ. Known for his love of classic, soulful and jacking house music, Leon performs energized sets with an eclectic taste in music that are sure to boost the tempo of any dance floor.
Starting out his career as a house DJ, Leon met with house music DJ and vinylist Matt Harding. With Matt’s knowledge and enthusiasm, Leon was quick to learn the art of mixing. Leon later went on to join Matt in a local venue “Creation and Eden”. Eager to pursue his love affair with house music and DJing, Leon started working in bars and clubs throughout Swansea under the watchful eye of Matt.
It wasn’t until Leon met with CN Williams in the summer 2013 that things were due to change. Leon fast became a resident DJ for the VIP promotional event #Soulfulswansea. Leon then made the line up for a Dubai style beach party that sold out within weeks, where Leon played the closing set. Leon then proceeded to play in clubs such as the legendary Escape night club, Oxygen, Revolution, Bar Ten and Peppermint.
Soon after Leon then joined the ranks of the Reelhouse DJs and decided that branching into a new area of Djing was needed. After a positive start to the year, Leon launched his "da funk expo" live and visual radio show on the Reelhouse TV radio. After having a run of successful shows with over three thousand listeners per show, Leon still continues to run his weekly radio show with guest Djs on the line up.
In 2015 Leon made his way out to Ibiza and played his debut sets in Tulp Beach Bar, Liquid Purple and Club Extreme Ibiza. Back in the UK Leon continued DJing within his local area and his weekly online radio show. Leon has also played in less conventional locations, such as Top Shop and for the grand opening of the Cardiff’s Jack & Jones retail outlet. “Being out of a typical club environment was a great opportunity to play to a varied audience.”
Leon then secured a residency in December 2015 at Bar Ten Swansea, covering private events and became the venues “go to” DJ for house and mixed genre events.
Leon then went on to securing his first international booking in the prestigious Tr!beca bar/ club in Dubai for New years eve 2016, where he was invited to to play a six hour, mixed genre set to large audience.
