Apart from making us zap out into nicer places / move our booties on the dance floor (depends), London based Leigh Morgan is successful as a producer.
Leigh has been involved in the deep house scene for over 15 years, having A&R’d and run the widely respected Urban Torque imprint since it’s inception in 2001, and also compiling the popular Urban Torque Transmissions Radio Show, now in to it’s ninth year.
Originally Urban Torque was a club night at Heaven in London between 1999 and 2002. The resident DJs were Juan Atkins, Justin Robertson, Craig Richards, Adam Freeland, Dave Angel, Terry Francis, Phil Perry, Dave Clarke and The Propellerheads. We staged the very first Defected Records party, had guest DJs like Danny Howells, Carl Cox, Danny Rampling, The Murk Boys and loads of live performances including an unbelievable show by Shades Of Rhythm. Inspired by the diversity of underground electronic music assembled under one roof and they created this in a record label.
He is also the co-founder of new London imprint Fancy Human, the collective of Leigh Morgan, Rob King and Tom Coulling.
