FRIDAY
Frædag: Leon Vynehall

Leon Vynehall | g-HA & Olanskii | Øyvind Morken | Piers Harrison (Mysticisms)

Leon Vynehall defies categorisation. Over the years, he’s released albums that weren’t albums, merged disparate musical worlds from House to Jazz,  created live shows that moved against the grain of their club context, and preferred all-night residencies when everybody else was cashing in on festival sets. A lot has transpired since his last visit to Jaeger. He’s been recognised by the Ivors academy for his work with Wesley Joseph; he set up his new label Studio Ooze and launched with a single called Rosebud; and he’s scored music for film and fashion brands like Dior. He ‘s back in the basement this summer with g-HA & Olanskii.

Leon Vynehall

Vynehall’s DJ style is eclectic, considered and always surprising, and has been expertly reflected in his popular mixes for the likes of FACT and XLR8R, with the latter commenting that his contribution to their podcast series “quite possibly raised more questions than it answered”. As a recording artist, he’s recently reflected these eclectic tastes, going from the club-friendly House of his early days to the more immersive terrain with two LPs, that has defined a turn in his recorded output. After bringing euphoria to dancefloors all over the world with the humid house of ‘Rojus (Designed To Dance)’, he took a sharp left turn with debut album ‘Nothing Is Still’—a masterclass in subverting expectations.

His subsequent entry to the renowned, long-running DJ-Kicks series (seeing him join the likes of Moodymann, Four Tet and DJ Koze), Vynehall turned further away from convention, putting together a mix that naturally and creatively blended everything from industrial and techno to dancehall, soul and ambient. It’s a craft he’s honed into a skillful diatribe of his eccentric tastes, represented in the form of a Dj set.

 

g-HA & Olanskii

Two pivotal bodies in the sphere of Norwegian electronic music, g-HA & Olanskii are an event, a club, a DJ duo, and a musical authority for Norway. Individually adept as DJ, selectors and tastemaker, Ola “Olanskii” Smith-Simonsen and Geir “g-HA” Holger’s musical voices unified for Sunkissed, an events series that has become the backbone of Oslo’s electronic music scene and  beyond.
