The Lennster was born Leone Fontana to Italian and Spanish parents in Brooklyn, New York, 21st September 1967, making him a cusp of beauty: aesthetic, sensuous and harmonious; much like our DJ Ralf, the infamous HG Wells, Ray Charles and of course Julio Inglesias. The soulful, smooth yet energizing house music that he plays and produces gets the required result and moves the entire crowd.
"I started listening to the mastermix with Shep Pettibone on 98.7 F.M. Kiss New York in 1982 and was dazzled by his fantastic editing skills and great music. This started my passion to be a DJ and to buy records. I immediately went out and purchased turntables, a Bozak mixer and my Technics Reel to Reel, and practiced what I had been hearing on the radio, from 1983 till 1986. I was awarded my first big break at New York's "Underground" in Union Square.
Until that glorious moment I played at private and house parties to learn how to play to a crowd. I will say that going to the Garage and Better Days had a major impact on me as far as wanting to be a DJ. These guys who controlled every emotion that went on in that room for a day where worshiped like they were Gods. It was such a great experience to get to see all this and to be schooled on how to play to audience of that calibre. And that education was invaluable tome."
