We're very pleased to tell you that we have signed hot up and coming producer Werkha. Initially recommended by Quantic to Tru Thoughts A&R Robert Luis, Werkha is the project of musician and producer Tom A. Leah. After a big year in which his reputation has swiftly spread he is currently putting the finishing touches to a clutch of new tunes to be released in 2014.
Since Werkha unleashed his debut ‘Cube & Puzzle’ EP on Cool Kid Music, in September 2012, the release has become something of an underground sensation, enjoying airplay throughout Europe, most notably from Gilles Peterson - who included one of his tracks on Brownswood Bubblers 10.
Hailing from Manchester, Leah began feeding his musical passions with classical, folk, and jazz music as a youngster. After leaving the bricks of Manchester for the sticks of Cumbria, a subsequently well-travelled childhood exposed him to a vibrant landscape of varied musical styles.
