From starting his career playing at Akaakaroar, Brighton to now making his debut at the Mixmag HQ, Leon Vynehall has spent decades turning dancefloors into house music utopias.
Paving the way with his initial club-focused release ‘Music for the Uninvited’, Vynehall has continued to expand his delivery of what house music can be by exploring the chemistry between electronica and his own personal stories. His 2021 album, 'Rare, Forever' is a perfect example of Vynehall’s capabilities by combining electronic textures to express a mixture of themes.
This time last year, Vynehall released his monumental fabric presents mix. The double LP featured over 30 tracks from friends and favourites of the British DJ and producer, from Skee Mask, to Or:la. Since then, his track from the album ‘Sugar Slip (The Lick)’ has been reworked by a collection of artists in a later release.
When Vynehall isn’t making mixes or albums, you can find him producing and collaborating with other artists. For instance, recently he has worked on tracks for Kenzie TTH and Wesley Joseph who both go way beyond the electronic genre that he typically sits within.
This year Vynehall has been booked for a range of festivals including London’s GALA and Croatia’s Love International. In an interview with MixmagMixmag last year Vynehall told us: “Playing live feels like a real, true expression of myself artistically. Audiences are far more willing to come along for the twists, and the dynamic shifts in a live context. That's what those settings are made for. So inherently, there's more freedom to experiment.”
