Following last year’s excellent Open EP, house innovator Leon Vynehall is set to follow it up with a more substantial offering.
Music for the Uninvited is Vynehall’s debut album, and even at a modest seven tracks shows a surprising breadth of influence. The British producer cites car rides with his mum listening to cassettes as his main influence, and fuses the memories of listening without access to a shuffle or skip button into the experience of listening to Music for the Uninvited.
He says, “I grew up with tapes. I was introduced to recorded music through that medium, listening to mixed hip-hop, funk & electro tapes, Janet Jackson albums, Style Council and Stiff Little Fingers. It was quite varied.”
More eclectic than his previous run of 12″s, Music for the Uninvited includes select downtempo cuts as well as the expected wonky house experiments, but Vynehall has weaved the tracks together in the hope that they will stand as a complete listening experience.
Music for the Uninvited will be released on March 17 via 3024. You can hear last year’s Open EP below.
Lyon Vynehall will be playing all night at London’s Dance Tunnel on March 7 – you can buy tickets here.
