Leila (full name: Leila Arab) was born and grew up in Iran. Her family fled the Islamic revolution when she was 7 years old and settled in London, England. She was educated at an exclusive boarding school until her dad went bankrupt. She went to comprehensive and then onto university where she dropped out of to play keyboard for Bjork.

After the success of Debut and Post, she built a studio in her bedroom and from there she went on to produce two of the finest pieces of electronica ever to grace my speakers.

If you like Massive Attack or Aphex Twin then I suggest you check either of these albums out. You'll probably walk away with a massive grin on your face.
