On the playlist: Leon Else – Protocol

Introducing online producer

This is the final BBC Introducing track to be added to the Radio 1 playlist in 2013. We’ll be back with more in 2014 but for now, we’ll leave you with this from Leon Else which will be played on daytime Radio 1 shows including Greg James, Scott Mills and Dev. As always, tell us what you make of it in the comments section.

Hometown: Leon is a 24 year-old singer-songwriter from Margate, Kent.

Style: Smooth, sophisticated and dark lyrics and melodies run through Leon’s RnB-led sound. Protocol echoes Leon’s soulful influences including James Blake, Jamie Woon and Drake and is the perfect antidote for those who’ve had their fill of sickly sweet Christmas sounds.

You need to know: Protocol was recently discovered by Huw Stephens who featured it on this very blog a couple of weeks ago.

Supported by: Leon has been championed by our team in Kent, who made the track their record of the week back in November.

Find out more: Follow Leon on Facebook and Twitter for more. There are a couple of dates in the diary for 2014 already with more to be expected.
