Bavarian producer Leibniz is the ripe old age of 23 and has seen his musical output change considerably throughout his years. After initially studying classical piano he found himself immersed in the punk scene and came out the other side after hearing dubstep and Aphex Twin (a familiar story for many people I’m sure!).
What Matters / Bring It Don’t Sing It Parts 1 & 2 is his debut release for UK imprint Fourth Wave which has released some wicked house the past year from the likes of Gerry Read and Dimitri Dimas‘ superb Skyway EP back in February. What Matters / Bring It Don’t Sing It Parts 1 & 2 follows a similar pattern to the latter – rounded sprightly house. Opening track What Matters takes hi pass filtering to new levels, with the hi hats never pushing to the lo end which I haven’t really heard before. Bring It Don’t Sing It Parts 1 & 2 is essentially one 10 minute track on which he manages to lay down a seriously solid groove that wouldn’t sound it of place in a Joy Orbison set.
Great release from the young producer. I imagine we’ll be hearing a lot more from him in the next six months.
Release Date: 21 October 2013
