Leon Vynehall – “It’s Just (House of Dupree)”


Portsmouth, UK’s Leon Vynehall is creating some of my favorite music right now.


His latest mini-album, Music for the Uninvited, is seven tracks replete with grooving house beats, analog hiss, vinyl crackle, and very emotive synths, but his real gift is his knowledge and use of string arrangements, which are transporting my ears to an extremely happy place as I type this.





It was difficult to pick just one track to highlight, but “It’s Just (House of Dupree)” clinches it for the clever looping of that Isley Brothers bubbling keyboard sample from “Don’t Say Goodnight” used in J Dilla, Common and D’Angelo’s “So Far to Go.”

Vynehall is signed to Netherlands-via-DC producer Martyn‘s label 3024, home of some of the most forward-thinking house and post-dubstep around.





If you haven’t heard Martyn’s “These Words” featuring dBridge on vocals, you must!
