“‘Winging It’ really captures how vibrant and diverse Leeds’ electronic scene is,” Shauna explains. “It’s a proper melting pot of sounds, you can really hear the influence from beyond electronica into jazz and hip hop as well.

“It’s really exciting to be on a comp that lets upcoming producers who are currently pushing the scene forward sit alongside legends like Bobby O’Donnell and Tom Stewart.”

“‘Winging It’ is a snapshot of where we’re at with electronic artists in Leeds.” continues project co-ordinator Tony Green. “[There is] The spirit of the record shop, the older generation of artists and the new talent forming new friendships and collaborations for the future.”
