My sets are an eclectic mix - Hip Hop, Soundtrack/Library, Electronica, Jazz, 60's/70's rock, Jazz, Folk. I hail from Sheffield and celebrate music found in past and present record shops: Chesterfield, Nottingham, Manchester, Birmingham and charity shops all over London. I'm also a visual artist who creates paintings around the theme of recording and listening to sound. In my paintings I create a dialogue on the fascination, desire and significance of audio and visual formats in today’s digital society. www.leonridyard.co.uk Work in progress Instagram feed
