By my estimation, the chunky “two up, two down” vocal sample UK producer Leon Vynehall uses in “Gold Language” is a screwed-down sample from Chris Brown’s verse in Berner’s “Yoko (Ono).” Chris Brown is such a pinner little cretin that it almost besmirches an otherwise well-executed bit of ~*soulful bass music,*~ which is probably my ~*favorite type of bass music.*~
Thankfully, we’re talking about Leon Vynehall, a name most of you probably recognize from Disclosure’s FACT Mix (which, yes, was divine, but when that thing dropped everyone was acting like Steve Aoki just threw cake in their faces -___-). His latest release, “Don’t Know Why”/”Gold Language,” drops next week via George Fitzgerald’s Man Make Music imprint* and upholds the producer’s tasteful use of bass and house influences. Speaking of hot mixes, Fitzgerald launched into his XLR8R podcast a few weeks ago with Vynehall’s bouncing, low-end-heavy a-side “Don’t Know Why,” which showcases the beatmaker’s penchant for pointed vocal samples.
*Great name for an electronic music label, amirite?
