New producer Vaylo makes his debut on Matt Tolfrey’s Leftroom Ltd this July with the ‘Fawn’ EP that features two original tracks as well as remixes from Waifs & Strays and Maher Daniel. 25 year old and a graduate of Electronic and Urban Music, Vaylo is new to house music and, having built up a tidy portfolio of house and techno tracks over the past year or so, is about to unleash a series of 12″s. With a production background based in other genres, Vaylo is both accomplished in the studio and has fresh-faced enthusiasm for the 4:4 thump. ‘Fawn’ opens the EP with distinct rave/ukg influences. Piano stabs, staccato bass licks and soulful vocal snippets surround a rim shot heavy drum track making for a timeless peak time track while the ‘Conject’ goes for a more heads down, jacking approach with warm Jupiter 8 brass being the only element to break the insistent groove. Increasingly influential duo Waifs & Stays take on ‘Fawn’ and isolate the original’s stabs and vox and weld them to a zapping electro-styled beat to create a moodier, heavier groove that pays homage to early 80s aesthetics. Leftroom’s Maher Daniel nagging, rattling version of ‘Fawn’ closes the EP with a real sense of technoid purpose. Stuttering beats, shuffling drum machines and energetic effects merge with Velo’s original parts perfectly throughout.
