One of the owners of the studio spotted his enthusiasm and gave Leon Jean-Marie a job as runner. As he learnt his way round a mixing desk, Leon began experimenting with his own tunes, and immersing himself in the world of music production. A few years later he went to University, but dropped out to move to London and to enter the world of the music industry. At first things didn’t go well and Leon was frustrated, with so many ideas but nowhere to put them down.
