LEON VYNEHALL

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.

On 10 April 2018 Vynehall announced his signing to UK independent label Ninja Tune. This coincided with the announcement of his debut full-length album Nothing Is Still, due for release on 15 June 2018. The inspiration for the album comes from Vynehall’s grandparents. Emigrating from the south-east of the United Kingdom to New York City in the 1960s, their seven-day journey via boat from Southampton to Brooklyn and other stories only came to light upon the passing of his grandfather four years previous. The album will also include a novella and set of short films. The first single from the album was Envelopes (Chapter VI), described by Pitchfork as "heart-rending experimental electronica", received coverage in a large number of notable online and print publications including NME, Pitchfork, Resident Advisor, Mixmag, Fact , XLR8R, DIY,Clash,  Mojo, The Vinyl Factory and more.The track received wide-spread radio play on stations such as BBC Radio 1, BBC Radio 1Xtra, BBC 6 Music and Gilles Peterson's WorldWide FM.
