Leon Lamont

Producer Leon Lamont is known for his experimental breakbeats, in addition to his work as a DJ, drummer and filmmaker. Lamont writes his music from a real-world perspective, often drumming his own breaks in addition to the standard samples. Widely known as a professional drummer on the downtown New Tork scene, he’s played with such artists as Melvin Gibbs, Vernon Reid, Joshua Redman, DJ Logic, John Medeski, Chris Wood, Chocolate Genius, Biz Markie, Anti-Pop Consortium, Apollo Heights, Dead Prez, Martina Topley-Bird, and Genes & Machines to name a few. All Music Guide once referred to him as “the difference between an artist and just another beat monger”.
