Leon Vynehall has already proved himself to be that rare thing – an artist with his own agenda rather than a producer aping the sound of the day. To date his off kilter sounds have come in the form of EPs of labels like Brighton’s Well Rounded Housing Project, George FitzGerald’s ManMakeMusic imprint and Will Saul’s Aus Music and have been carefully crafted things layered with musicality whilst never straying too far from a infectious groove.
As a listener of anything from post punk to classical, funk to disco, soul to techno, all these interests and more impact on the music Vynehall makes. His tempos, timbres and sonic palettes always vary with the end results being raw, expressive sounds with their own unique charm. And then there is his latest more dancefloor-focused project with A1 Bassline aka Laszlo Dancehall. Despite being in its infancy the duo have had a ubiquitous release on ManMakeMusic with much more to follow for those people waiting impatiently.
As a DJ, too, he has impressed, not only with much-loved podcasts but also an impressive turn in the Boiler Room. So too does he DJ around Europe on a regular basis and is as comfortable playing with Todd Edwards as he is Simian Mobile Disco or DJ Nature. Something of a media recluse, all we really know about Leon Vynehall we know from his music. So far it’s proved a fascinating story.
