Why do we like this?
In 1998, one man's epiphany shook the framework of a local Leeds club called Basics. Touched by the sounds of house, Leigh D Oliver set down the guitar (his primary instrument at the time) and dove into a world where crackling hi-hats, four-to-the-floor kicks and punchy vocal samples assembled into an unshakable passion.

Drawing inspiration from Chicago and Detroit, Oliver reference's Detroit's own Moodyman as a personal favorite, and the influence is strikingly abundant in his productions.

"Dear Deluded," due out on Inner City Records, is just a tiny taste of Oliver's massive talents. His SoundCloud is loaded with proper house tunes in every flavor. I spent the brunt of yesterday listening to his entire catalog without finding single tune I didn't like. In fact, I found many that I simply loved.

Oliver may have a formula down pat; his tunes perfectly retain the classic sounds of house, but his style is far from systematic. There's a whole lot of soul in his music. Diving in, you probably won't get to the bottom of it, but then that's the mark of a great producer.

Keep up to date via Oliver's facebook or follow his personal label, Definite Ridge, for nonstop great tunes.
