LE BAIN: It’s another legendary selector from Ibiza, Alfredo, who inspired you to become a DJ. You said, “we both described ourselves as freaks and we were left-wing". What was it to be a ‘left-wing freak' in your hometown Milan in the early 80’s?
LEO MAS: It means being a lover of personal freedom, and a defender of the freedom of all people. It's about being curious, a follower of the alternative scene and the countercultures within art, music, cinema, theatre, publishing, fashion. Keeping the eyes open to the avant-garde, and always dreaming to make a job out of your passions. Milan in the early 80s was a really creative city, you could find a lot of people that shared that same attitude, meeting in clubs, Plastic in particular, or in concerts.
Were you as radical with your records as you were with your politics?
Yes, I can say I’ve always been radical and brave in music, quality for me is the most important thing, and my ears are linked to my heart and my musical culture.
