    If you like James Blake, listen to Vegyn

    Specifically, if you like James Blake's more abstract, purely instrumental side, and thoughtful, refined electronic music in general, get into the new EP by Vegyn (pronounced "vegan"). There's an intense focus on rhythm, rather than texture: all of Vegyn's work is centered around (or eventually grows into) poly-percussive danceables. But these beats never fly down the gloomy rabbit holes of, say, anĀ Arca. Vegyn keeps things funky and sassy, and it sounds like he'll be igniting dance floors for years to come.

    His Janhui EP is out now.
