One of Music On’s favourite residents, Leon starts the year on the front foot with releases on Deeperfect, Roush and his own D-FLOOR label.
On February 26th, Leon launches his second release for Deeperfect Records, Bamako, an EP featuring two original cuts of lucid tech house.
“Tribalism” is made with friendly percussion and ethnic vibes that sweep through the body like a tidal wave of sound. A voice is teased in until it reveals itself as an epic reggae slanted hook that completes the sonic aesthetic. ‘Trip N Forest’ provides a deeper vibe. The track is stripped back and subtle, pushing forward with a pumping beat and bouncing, hypnotic sub bass. The gritty textures of the drums are contrasted by silky smooth choral pads and a dubbed out vocal which provides the track with an air of mystery.
