Leon Vynehall’s route to house music hasn’t been direct. His teenage years were spent listening to crunchy post-hardcore before fretboard-scratching funk entered the picture. A stint living in artsy Brighton accelerated the adaptation to even dancier climes and, in 2012, he made his debut bows on Well Rounded Housing Project and George Fitzgerald’s ManMakeMusic. But even as he becomes more strongly aligned with the dance music firmament, his outsider ear always seems to make itself known. A case in point: The forthcoming sample-heavy 3024 release Music for the Uninvited, where samples and interwoven sonic tics arrive from all over the map: a Harlem ball queen; Miss America ‘84; pixellated forestry.
