Biography

When Leandro Fina – aka Le Noir – leans back to absorb a new track, a number of questions are running through the substantial grey matter between those headphones: which elements in the mix are working towards which moods? What gives the track so much room to swing? Just how did they arrange those superb strings? Le Noir is looking for substance – because only the cream of the tracks are just about good enough for this relentless perfectionist’s triple-distilled sets. Rather than let himself be guided by dance floor fashions, he more often creates them, just as he did some years ago when he crossed over from garage to techno-house and redefining the term ‹success› for a host of other Swiss DJs in the
process.

The extremely high standards he sets himself are no coincidence. Born into a family of musicians, Leandro enjoyed an exemplary musical youth, getting behind the drum kit in his father’s session room aged just three. Guitars, basses, keyboards and all kinds of percussion instruments filled that room – instruments that Le Noir would later learn to play himself. It was only a matter of time before he was a regular in his father’s varied band lineups, being almost impossible to remove from the long, explorative jam sessions that his Congolese father would hold almost nightly with his fellow African musicians. «I’ve been making music since before I learned to walk properly… It was just normal at our place», muses Le Noir.
