Assistant Editor/Media Sales Director
Leah joined Core Magazine in 2008 to assist with Sales/Development and became Media Sales Director in 2012. Originally from Bradford, Leah started her Media Sales career in Birmingham in 1999 after graduating from University in Paris. After having worked for various publications at management level, Leah moved to France with her family in 2009 but continued her proactive work for Core.
Leah's role is interchangeable - whilst her main role within Core is to increase and manage the level of sales and advertising, she is also currently Assistant Editor within the team.
Leah lives on a farm in France, loves horses, her children, her husband and of course, music! She's even been known to don the odd 'glo stick' on the right occasion :)

This interview is a bit of a special one. DJ Daft comes from the state of Connecticut in the USA and was diagnosed with Asperger’s Syndrome at the age of 8. We wanted to chat to him to find out more about Asperger's and why you are what you put your mind to, no matter what. We love this guy!

Here at Core, we all about the weird, wonderful and eclectic so when we discovered Tom York and Ajala, we were keen to discover how they moved from rock/pop/rnb into electro/dance with massive European success.

With his second album, Giuseppe Ottaviani has delivered the pitch-perfect ‘GO!’ sequel - a consummate long-player whose panoramic studio-ware will draw you in… and keep you there for months. Not simply EDM, but surround-sound, big room-filling 3DM, this summer’s colour… is ‘Magenta’. Undoubtedly the Italian's finest studio work to date!

The time has come to mark the most important of anniversaries. Eighteen years is a milestone in any lifetime, but one The Gallery is especially proud. Providing ‘excellence in the art of sound’ every Friday night, with moments, which really have defined a generation.
Last summer, two electronic music legends arrived at the outer limits of anthem status with their first co-production, ‘One Thousand Suns’. Already greater than the sum of its parts, English singer-songwriter extraordinaire Christian Burns now joins Chicane & Ferry Corsten on the track to bring it a whole new dimension. Applying his hyper-infectious, carry-you-away vocals, collectively they’re about to tip One Thousand Suns into supernova.
