Leanne first moved to London from Canada in 1991, immersing herself deep in the underground music scene. London club culture soon became more than a passtime; it built her community. Years spent creating visual identities with Robi Walters for people like Gilles Peterson, Benji B and Coop/West London massive, working with Patrick Forge on his Kiss FM radio show and behind the counter at Honest Jon’s helped to develop a broad appreciation and rich musical heritage.

She’s been a part of Worldwide FM since the very beginning helping to establish cultural programming such as a pop up at 1:54 Contemporary African Art Fair at Somerset House, creating a podcast for the Barbican’s Basquiat Boom For Real exhibition and the Charles Stepney doc with Kam Bhogal. Her regular The Emerald Tablet show on Worldwide FM explores the deep roots of electronic music from hip hop to house, jungle, techno and beyond, with a nod to the foundations jazz and R&B, while always facing forward.
