Thursday Night Get Down with DJ Exxon (aka Leon Foley)
It all started off in the early 90’s rave scene in Wellington, moving to Auckland to study and building a long standing partnership with music compadre Louis B. Their love of quirky beats progressed to outdoor raves, a house residency at the Hush Bar, to a multi Genre radio show on the now defunct Red FM.
From here 9 years in the North London Drum and Bass scene, Exxon would often be found foraging through the record stores of Camden and Soho, this is where his passion for vinyl grew. As a regular to Thursday’s Movement Night at Bar Rumba, Exxon saw behind the scene and found it was not always about showcasing the latest tunes.
Becoming part of Resource D and B, DJ Exxon developed his craft in creating fusion of old Skool and new Skool beats. Not limiting his involvement in the scene Exxon found Origin FM which opened the doors to the underground culture, progressing to studio builds and a Friday night show. Between East London Parties with Resource and North London radio with Originuk.net Exxon put that vinyl collection to good use.
Returning to NZ to enjoy family life, Exxon keeps up to date with beats as released and with use of Serato still keeps it locked on the ones and twos.
Not afraid to pull up a tune the aptly named RELOAD show captures the vibe of the music.
