Leon delivers a fun brand of electropop, and has also added much depth in the lyrics. He music shatters preconceptions about what South American pop sounds like.
At the same time, there is something irresistible that sucks you into the beat, as if some secret and addictive rhythmic fabric, too hard to resist.
