The stars must’ve aligned that night for Leroy and from that night on his carrier took off for real. Residency at successful club night Superstarz became a fact, followed by regular gigs at other famous Rotterdam club (The Thalia) known for its tough and always critical crowd. His unmistakable skills and unique energy soon got noticed by one of the biggest clubs of The Netherlands (Now&Wow) where he became a resident DJ after only a few successful gigs! Determined to bring “quality to the people”, Leroy Styles started a series of creative concepts of his own (Hufters, Electro Rockers) and in September 2006 his other concept, LOOKS at TheThalia was born. Every last Saturday of the month he invites the best national and international DJ’s like Benny Rodrigues, Brian S, René Amesz, Kenny Dope (USA), Dennis Ferrer (USA), Kerri Chandler (USA), Manoo (FR), D-Ramirez (UK), Jazzy Jeff (USA) and many more. Nowadays Leroy’s name is on the bill of Holland’s biggest festivals and best clubs such as Panama (Amsterdam), The Thalia (Rotterdam), De Rechter (Eindhoven), Escape (Amsterdam), Jimmy Woo (Amsterdam), Now & Wow (Rotterdam), The Level (Arnhem), Off-Corso (Rotterdam) and many more.
He also frequently plays abroad, and is particularly keen on South America and France, but who knows where his next record will take him? Spending all of his (non existing) spare time in the studio, Leroy Styles is producing like a mad man. His 2007 ‘Booty Bass (dream)’ became a Dutch club classic almost instantly, causing serious damage on the dance floor. Followed by ‘Jus Bounce’ that caught D-Ramirez’ attention and was featured on his Ministry of Sound compilation cd in 2007, gaining huge support by worlds finest DJ’s such as Jack de Marseille, Roger Sanchez, Sander Kleinenberg, Rene Amesz, Benny Rodrigues and Steve Angello. ‘Jus Bounce’ also appeared on a Renaissance album, mixed by Paolo Mojo.
This fantastic 80-minute Renaissance mix includes tracks from Paolo Mojo himself, Joris Voorn, Cirez D, Blue Foundation, Daso, Sebo K, Loco Dice and many more. Another Leroy track, God Will Set Me Free (feat. MC Crown), is featured on a Defected In The House Amsterdam 09 compilation. With a list of (upcoming) releases on his own label Afrazoo, Gregor Salto’s label G-Rex, Sidney Samson’s Samsobeats and Kerri Chandler’s (US) Grei Matter Records, with Manoo, Sunnery James & Ryan Marciano, Geneiro Nvilla, Glowinthedark en Jaquelino Ferreira lining up to do a remix of his tracks, this talented producer/DJ is definitely here to stay.
