DJ/Producer Tom Leah AKA Werkha chats James Blake

Last updated:

House DJ/Producer newcomer Tom Leah Aka Werkha fills us in about the music scene,  James Blake and taking his shoes off when recording.

Hailing from Manchester and nd now Glasgow-residing Leah began feeding his musical passions with classical, folk, and jazz music as a youngster. After leaving the bricks of Manchester for the sticks of Cumbria, a subsequently well-travelled childhood exposed him to a vibrant landscape of varied musical styles.

This has clearly been manifested in the sound he has harnessed as Werkha. If you have yet to sample the delights, expect to hear an infectious fusion of Afrobeat, bass, house, jazz, funk and soul, bound together and brought bang up to date through contemporary electronic production that never stands still.

WERKHA cites  James Blake as one of his inspirations:
