Welcome to the Record Club, a monthly feature in collaboration with Lemonade Drinkers Logo where we invite pioneers of our time to play us a selection of eight tracks from their record collections and celebrate a shared love of music.

“Part drifter, part dandy, part flaneur artiste… [Leckey operates on] the knife’s edge where art and life meet.” – Art Forum

Our first edition is selected by British artist and Turner Prize winner Mark Leckey whose work with sculpture, sound, film and performance draws heavily from music and sound system culture. His recent solo show at the Serpentine Gallery has continued to explore the theme of transformation through music, seen most notably in ‘Fiorucci Made Me Hardcore’, a visual history of the underground dance scene from the 1970s to the ‘90s, for which Leckey won the Turner Prize.

Lemonade Drinkers Logo is a music and ideas factory providing music compositions and soundscapes across media and the arts.
