Leonardo Villalobos Trejo aka Leo-Vit (dj/producer/promoter) was born in June 1981 in Mexico City. At three years of age he moved to Venezuela (his parent's city of birth), where he spent most of his life between the cities of Caracas and Maracaibo.
The Venezuelan artist's first contact with music was at an early age due to his mother being an events manager. This meant that he grew up on the music scene.
At 15 he had his first contact with electronic music, which opened up an entirely new world for him. Later, at 17, he began mixing as a hobby, over the course of two years this became a lifestyle and he became fully involved in the underground scene of Caracas. Taking ACID TECHNO as his flag, this would lead him to his current passion and predilection for HARD TECHNO and SCHRANZ.
At 20, living in Maracaibo, better known as HORNOCITY, he began his career as a DJ and promoter, he was one of the precursory members of the underground movement in Maracaibo along with two other collectives in the city. He then started up a group of DJs and friends: MKBO CREW which finally ended up being called: FUCK YOU COLLECTIVE. These events enjoyed the participation of International DJs including the likes of: DJ ROWLAND THE BASTARD (UK), Chris Liberator (UK), Lukas (Bra), Candy Cox (Bra), Tobias Luke aka OBI (Ger), Alex TB (Bra), Dj Parker (UK), Dj Radchid (CR), Dj Talia (Fr) ETC. As well as local and national DJs, amongst the best known: DESTRO, Dj Wen, Berio 303, Dr Deneb, ETC, along with many others. With the collaboration of existing collectives they created and ran the electronic music scene in the city.
In 2006 he left the scene, but never stopped looking into and keeping up to date with the music scene and its evolution. In 2008 he resurfaced and this time to stay. In 2010 he travelled to Madrid, Spain, to complete his studies in Sound Engineering, and to compliment his know-how with a Masters in Digital Audio Production and the official AVID certificate in Pro Tools 10.
After finishing his studies he stayed in the country and started up a group of local and national DJs, this collective is today known as PUNKZ ARTILLERY (Spn) with their web-based radio show (punkz artillery on air). In only two years they have managed to put on over twenty shows around the country and have also collaborated on special on-line sessions for radio broadcasts abroad.
LEO-VIT is characterized for having a pure and clean technique, which is, at the same time, full of killer cuts and counter rhythms. He has expert mastery over effects, inserting many simultaneously on each track, as well as loops and samples, which he makes constant use of during his sessions to make live remixes during his shows. His sessions are always full of new music and little gifts from producer friends. He is always searching for the most broken, dark and hard-hitting sounds of a mixture of styles that include (HARD TECHNO-SCHRANZ/HARDTEK-TRIBECORE).
One of the most important things about this artist is the transformation he undergoes when it is time to go on stage. He gives 120% of himself to the crowd and set's free the explosion inside of him, infecting everyone so that they give it all they've got on the dance floor, and then a little bit more.
