LEON VYNEHALL

UK

After becoming a resident DJ at Akaakaroar, a Brighton club, Vynehall released several EP’s on labels such as Well Rounded Housing Project and Aus. As a result of his productions, he quickly became an in-demand DJ. His debut full-length album, Music for the Uninvited, garnered widespread praise and landed on several year-end lists in publications such as NPR Music, XLR8R, and The Washington Post. His second album, Rojus, which was released in 2016, also received positive reviews. Vynehall now resides in the outskirts of Leicester.

Vynehall’s music combines the “percussive energy of contemporary House music” with “rich harmonies of sample-centric producers”. Vynehall lists Aphex Twin, Afrika Bambaataa, Man Parrish and DJ Shadow as some of his major influences.
