The last two years have seen the South Coast’s Leon Vynehall steadily rise through the UK house ranks.
Debuting in 2012 with a brace of records on ManMakeMusic and regularly ahead-of-the-game Brighton label Well Rounded, Vynehall quickly established himself as a dab hand at organic, natural-sounding house music and a smart cookie with a hook. It was no surprise, then, when Will Saul’s Aus Music jumped on him for 2013’s ‘Brother’ / ‘Sister’ single, while Martyn’s 3024 label signed up a three-track title EP titled Open. Vynehall’s relationship with 3024 is clearly a blossoming one: this month, he’ll release a “mini-album” for the label titled Music for the Uninvited.
This Friday (March 7), London clubnight Way Back Here give the whole night over to Vynehall, who’ll be spinning from opening to close. This midweek FACT mix should give you some idea of what to expect – Vynehall draws for twinkling house, clipped electronics, good times funk and more, but like all good DJs, makes it sound like it all comes from the same place.
