A sonic maestro, who shaped the UK’s sound system and dance culture.

Dubplate cutting engineer Leon Chue has died.

Chue began working at the Music House London mastering studio in August 1995, and would continue to work there for over twenty years.

Located in Tottenham Hale, Music House was at the forefront of the UK’s dubplate culture – from sound systems to d’n’b, jungle, garage, reggae, and beyond.

According to Chue, there was a fourteen-hour-queue for services on his first weekend:

“It was madness, but it was a family,” Chue explained. “It was a lot of love – everybody was friends.”
