There’s been so much hype around Will Saul’s upcoming DJ-Kicks mix, and when he releases tracks like this, it’s easy to understand why. Leon Vynehall’s ‘Time’ has been released in its entirety after being premiered a few months ago on BBC Radio 6, and it’s beautiful. Just as ‘Music for the Uninvited’ (Vynehall’s most recent EP) is, ‘Time’ is understated, calm and masterful; gentle percussion layers the disjointed chords, all the time subtly supported by that drum loop. Vynehall’s had an amazing year so far – ‘Music for the Uninvited’ has been released to deservedly widespread critical acclaim, and in a time where electronic music is increasingly saturated, he stands out as a producer capable of creating tangibly emotional and complex art.
‘Time’ is out on Will Saul’s DJ-Kicks, which also features Bicep’s stand out exclusive track ‘Nova’, on June 16th.
