London artist VAS LEON has recently released his debut LP ‘Krossover’, an explosive LP showing the growth of his position in the music industry after a break to travel.
Singles from the Krossover LP, “That Vibe” & “Lyrical Slaughter” have been premiered on The Beat London (previously BANG Radio) and instantly grabbed attention all over the world resulting in festivals supporting UK Chart topping West London collective WSTRN. After working with legendary Americans record producer and DJ Arthur Baker and supporting the MTV, Brit & Grammy Award winning FatBoy Slim, VAS LEON decided it was time to finish and release this work of art filled with passion.
Vas took on the challenge of our Sugar Rush Quiz.

I never watch TV… literally I don’t watch TV at all!
Would you choose the cinema, theatre or a restaurant for a night out?
Theatre! 100%! More entertainment, more cozy, more interaction!
What’s your favourite sweet?
I don’t eat sweets, but if I was to answer this question in my weird self my answer would be ‘Life’. HOWEVER… If I absolutely had to choose one when I was younger i used to love ‘Wine Gums!’ It was between those and jelly babies.
What did you want to be when you were a child?
Happy. Other than that. A cross between Michael Jackson and Will Smith! Someone who can act sing and dance and make people laugh!
What was the naughtiest thing you did when you were a child?
I can’t remember. Everything I did was naughty haha.
What is your proudest achievement to date?
Exceeding the expectations in music that people thought I would never achieve. Remaining positive and pulling through no matter what barriers occur. Someone told me one of my songs saved their life which made me really proud of my talent.
To get into a place where I am independently as influential as Kanye West! To spread the message of my music and make a difference. My music isn’t just words and sounds. It’s life. Its soul. It has a pulse, it just doesn’t walk around haha.
