About this item
Leon Vynehall's steep trajectory into stardom continues. Following an acclaimed Fabric compilation and sold-out takeover of the club, plus his highly lauded Radio One residency, he returns to his own newly birthed label with another club smasher.
"Rosebud" is a highly frenetic, heads down slammer. Technoid stabs cementing a sturdy pulse while a whole manner of refracted sfx and voltage-injected vox fire over the top of the mix.
"Black Dove" rides wubbing subs and stuttered vocal snips with a skippy beat that recalls early Joy O or 2010-era Four Tet, only to elevate things further with a trance-informed breakdown that captures all the energy, spirit and euphoria of a night out to remember. A monster of a track that's brilliantly alive and addictive. Reduced and twisted on the 'Winged Version', which sees Leon bury the track even deeper underground and into the rave bunker.
Seriously strong 12" from this modern dance music superstar. Recommended!
Matt says: Brilliantly produced EP from LV which tickles the system in all the right places. Whether you play techno or bass, you'll find the whole EP a joy on the senses.
