Review: Fresh from his massive debut EP for Well Rounded, Leon Vynehall returns on George Fitzgerald's Man Make Music imprint with another two tracks of bass infused deep house. With a raw, yet syncopated rhythmic approach, the title track is given a healthy dose of soul with its delicate piano flourish. "Don't Know Why" meanwhile adopts a more standard deep house template, but is no less enthralling thanks to its thick vintage bass and classic chords. Brownswood artist Gang Colours provides a suitably intricate rework of "Gold Language" which utilises brittle rhythms and vapour-like melodies to stunning effect.

Review: Although Leon Vynehall is one of an increasing number of producers bringing the influence of bass music styles into the deep house formula, the Mauve EP stands apart from the rest of the crowd - the title track is anthemic stuff, mixing Detroit and Bristol house styles in just the right quantities with hands in the air piano, soulful vocals and quietly bubbling bass. "Picture Frame" is a much slower end of the night number which has echoes of classic Balearica, while "Homage" opens with subtle cut-up rave stabs, rippling percussion and moody spoken word intro, before erupting into life with devastating subs which catch you totally off guard. House? Bass? It doesn't matter - the only sure thing is that Vynehall is someone to keep an eye on.

Review: Portsmouth-based bass-goes-deep house adventurer Leon Vynehall has yet to emulate the success of fellow Well Rounded Housing Project graduates James Fox and Outboxx, but you can tell he's destined for big things. The Rosalind EP is a perfect fit on WRHP, delivering tracks that offer the perfect balance between bass-heavy swing, Detroit-influenced crackliness and emotion-rich deepness. "Untitled 017" sets the tone, layering pitched-down R&B vocal samples over a tumbling groove. "Title No. 7" adds some Outboxx-ish organ warmth to proceedings whilst retaining a similar sonic approach, while the startling "Rosalind" delivers a dreamy dowmtempo delight.
