Leon Vynehall returns to 3024 with ‘Music For The Uninvited’, a collection of 7 tracks meant as just that – a collection. It’s a record without skip or shuffle buttons, asking the listener to remember when the consumption of music was an altogether more romantic experience.
Noting rides to school in his mom’s car as the main inspiration for the record, Vynehall aimed to channel his memories of that journey by recording the tracks to cassette and threading them together. “I grew up with tapes. I was introduced to recorded music through that medium, listening to mixed hip-hop, funk & electro tapes, Janet Jackson albums, Style Council and Stiff Little Fingers. It was quite varied.”
While the record maintains a strong connection to Vynehall’s signature house sound, the British producer uses the double 12” platform to wander through down tempo beats and tranquil orchestral sketches. Despite its eclecticism ‘Music For The Uninvited’ has an undeniable warm tangibility that nods to the increasingly forgotten humanity of the listening process as a whole.
