DJ Serpico + Leo37 + First Place + FanFare

Monday, March 12, 2012

After a 5-year whirlwind of tours through 11 countries, shared stages with some of contemporary music’s great talents, and a personal life that has held its share of highs and lows, Taiwanese-Canadian emcee/producer/turntablist LEO37 has finally emerged with his brand new EP, FANFARE. Produced entirely by Toronto-based multi-instrumentalist, John Poon, this record, though brief, demonstrates a LEO37 who, lyrically, has never sounded more comfortable or confident. Marrying poignant, vivid lyrics and a highly stylized sense of cadence with a sonic mélange of analog and digital textures, this duo, during a time when everything has been done before has somehow created something altogether fresh.

Intentionally featuring a limited cast of guests (Lillian Chan/Vocals – You & The Nite and Tim Shia/Drums – Fire Dance, Footwork & Fanfare) and album art from award-winning animator/illustrator, Howie Shia, FANFARE is available now for free download at:
