Two smooth tracks from the undisputed master of the sunny afternoon warm-up vibe.
The UK producer is at his best when he's playing on the border between dance music and ambience. "Montpelier" sums it up perfectly. Floating drums, hats and occasional bursts of claps anchor a delicate interplay between keys and sweeping pads that brings to mind the gentler side of early Floating Points. It's the perfect soundtrack to lying in grass or swaying on a half-empty dance floor. "Rumex," a mellow and jazzy dubstep track, is almost as good. Leif is an undisputed master of the sunny afternoon warm-up vibe.
