Leon Vynehall rare, forever artwork

Producer Leon Vynehall has the pick of the albums reviewed on these pages during past seven days – here’s your chance to revisit the review and check out the album via Spotify.

“Lockdown hasn’t always been kind to DJs.”

“Normally the spin master extraordinaire – even if you’re checking out some Boiler Room set – is ensconced in a darkened club somewhere backed by a whoop-heavy crowd.”

“Instead, over the last year we’ve been watching them stream live from their bedrooms, seen that the people we’ve paid lots of money in the past to take us away can’t seem to dance and could do with a little more Vitamin D with their three PM breakfasts.”

“Leon Vynehall doesn’t really tick many of those front room boxes; cerebral but intense, the London-based producer is far from most people’s stereotypical producer.”

“Gaining inspiration at first from mixtapes his mother played to him on car journeys and his grandparents’ emigration to New York, the resulting soundscapes led to much critical acclaim for his debut album, 2018’s Nothing Is Still.”

“Flexing recently though, he’s been working with drill crossover artist Kam Bu.”
