Urgent Future Funk

Leon Jean-Marie

Producer-turned-artist is a familiar story in the music world.  It’s been happening for years.  People start laying down tracks for other folks only to find themselves yearning to take the helm of an entire song or album from start to finish. 

Leon Jean-Marie, a 25 year-old from East London has followed a similar path.  After producing and remixing for a host of prominent names (Beck & Mark Ronson to name a couple), Leon hit the studio and recorded a few songs by himself.   The finished product has been labeled as ‘urgent future funk.’ 

In March 2007, he dropped a 7″ single featuring a song called “Scratch.”  The rumbling bass line is tough to refuse, as a quick snare-loop snickers to create a crazy funky vibe.  His voice and cadence are smooth, which blends so well with the atmosphere created in the intro. 

The perfect song to keep you company on an evening walk to your local pub for a pint, perhaps forecasting a silent flirtatious encounter with someone at the other end of the room.

    Really good. Sort of catches you, snags you. I can hear it being bid over for a Toyota commercial in the future. Is it available on i-tunes yet?

    Vocals remind me of Lidell. Nice recommendation, Dr. MiS!
