DJ Leon Russell
Indian DJ/ Producer/Label Owner Leon Russell was born in 1984 in the city of Mumbai. Music
runs in his blood, as from a very young age he was treated to the likes of classic rock legends
such as Deep Purple, Iron Butterfly, Scorpions, Queen, CCR and The Steve Miller Band. The real
reason for his passion for music was his father who is also a musician. He got his first doze of
electronic dance music in the year 1998, when techno parties were a rage in Mumbai. He started
playing music at an early age of fifteen.
And then in the year 2008 came Toyz In Panic, formally known as “Leon Russell and Doktor
Daniel?, a project which brings to the floor a concept of EDM with a live element i.e.
percussions?. Their motive is to showcase a unique way of playing EDM. This act throw’s in a
style of EDM which is naughty, bouncy and groovy to the likes of Tech House, Techno and some
Progressive House as well. The momentum of the act is created by the connection it shares with
the people they perform for, and post that, the grid is always a journey that
is conveyed through the music. They have hit cities like Delhi, Chandigarh, Kolkata, Bengaluru,
Nepal and blown the doors off the clubs they have performed at.
He released his first track on Eddy Good?s Brain Games, called Brain Games (Eddy Good &
Leon Russell Remix). The track was released worldwide on 25th March, 2011 on his own Record
Label, Dazzle On records.
The year 2011, saw the birth of a project waiting to happen, Dazzle On Records. Dazzle On
Records is the brainchild of Leon Russell. The label focuses on bringing to you the finest of
