Fear of Flying delve once more into the world of long players with Leif, someone who has been a feature of the label since the labels inception, having contributed seven releases on their combined journey together. 'Dinas Oleu' is the culmination of that journey; a sonically refined trip through hazy deep house and tripped out ambient skits.
'Belief and Experience' is a beautifully subtle track with warm sonics ideally placed for the Autumnal season. 'Fortune' sees Leif dipping his toes into more techno waters albeit with his distinctly melodic sensibility. 'Flight' harnesses kinetic percussion whilst 'Age of Aquarius' delves deep into the world of synths.
Dropping the tempo 'Stutter & Hum' reaches for Balearic spirit with 'Koku' staying closer to Leif's signature stripped down house sound of the past. Title track 'Dinas Olue' features Chris Knowles (Leif's Dad) on harp imbuing the deep house vibe with a real sense of musicianship.
Penultimate track 'Until Dawn' is drenched in melancholic feelings before 'Through Noise Pt 2' lifts the tempo once more with Leif delving into the world of bass music with an atmospheric steppa'
