Leon Vynehall - Rare, Forever

There aren't many producers as varied and consistently interesting as Leon Vynehall right now. He has a swagger in everything he does, whether he is creating large soundscapes or oddball club songs. This record wears its influences from contemporary dance music on its sleeve, bringing together different styles in a weird but wonderful project. Mothra is a bizarre club cut that borrows from Joy Overmono's 'Bromley', which doesn't sound like it should work but on repeat listens is an oddly infectious song. An Exhale sounds like a cut from Barker's 'Utility, building to a euphoric crescendo without a single kick. Dumbo, the most obvious dancefloor filler on the record, could have found life on TSVI's hard drum label 'Nervous Horizon', with a pulsating bass kick and rotating drums. I feel as though the beginning and ends of this record aren't as strong as the middle, but that doesn't detract from the experience as a whole. Great album.
