4.0 excellentRoundOnEndHiInMiddle | April 5th 16

Rojus is everything a great deep house record should be: silky, soulful, danceable, and brimming with lovely synth and beat work. It sounds wholly organic and the rhythms are contagious to the body. Leon Vynehall has always been at the very least decent at this style, but Rojus showcases a focused producer who knows how to transition and progress things with almost mechanical efficiency, while also being able to inject humanity and emotion into the music as needed. It's intimate, personal deep house that progresses so impeccably that it's hard not to enjoy. Take closer "...There's You" for example. The song starts out pretty bare-bones, but as more synth lines and instruments come into the fray, the song almost crescendos like a traditional post-rock song would. It's an interesting concept that is done with the utmost professionalism multiple times throughout the record. Ultimately, this is an album that should put Vynehall towards the forefront of deep house, as he's certainly one of the best and brightest the subgenre has to offer.

3.5 greatTheManMachine | June 10th 16

Ah yes, good deep house that doesn't dip too much into the minimal and strays fruitfully far from the sterile -- oft-optimistic without surrendering its heavy trance-bass-thump and totes a whole boatload-a-busyness without approaching extravagant. Save for the atypical ambient-lean soother intro, the grooves are robust, buildups and tear-downs are judicious as fuck, the soundscape wields melodies-aplenty and voice flashes; but more importantly, percussion-sounds-aplenty and everyday etceteras and voices going ahhhh or woahhhh. Do just about all of 'em go on a wee-bit too long? Do the voices going "your love" and "energy" feel a trace trite? Sure. That parade-through-a-jungle-rave beat at "Kiburu's" tho.
