Leon Vynehall (Live)


As anyone pursuing a creative outlet will do at some point in their process; upon turning 30 in Los Angeles Leon Vynehall found himself wondering about what he’s trying to say in life, where he’s trying to go and thinking about his career to date. After bringing euphoria to dancefloors all over the world with the humid house of Rojus (Designed To Dance), he took a sharp left turn with debut album Nothing Is Still — a masterclass in subverting expectations that Pitchfork said in their 8.2 review is “designed to reward a degree of investment that goes beyond the passive listening experiences that define the streaming era.” With the entry to the long-running DJ-Kicks series that followed, Vynehall turned further away from convention, putting together a mix that naturally and creatively blended everything from industrial and techno to dancehall, soul and ambient in a way that Resident Advisor described in their 4.4/5 review as “brilliantly executed”.
