Bio

Music maker. Instrumental collaborator. Sonic Boomer.

Medium Punch is Melbourne-based producer and multi-instrumentalist, Jake Leahy. Combining a broad musical knowledge with a thirst for experimentation, Leahy creates meticulously crafted beats layered with ethereal harmonies and ambient textures.

Inspired by genres as diverse as RnB, soul, jazz, hip hop, garage and post-rock, Leahy records snippets of organically produced instrumentation, piecing them together with sonic and other audio discoveries. Sometimes the beat comes first, sometimes the bass, sometimes the electric guitar. The result is a cohesive blend of smooth electronica that often defies typical song structure.

The more I'm listening to it, the more I feel more attached to it. I can't get out!!! I love this work of art. The detailed and intricate, broken-like sounds and then the vocals of Forever Son is so experimental and so, so good!

You've always been a creative producer and it's a pleasure to hear you experimenting now even more than ever. Love the way you chop and affect individual sounds.

Dayummmmmmm!!! 5 minutes of me just leaning right into my screen, eyes wide open & wondering what's gonna drop next. What a fusion of sounds and genres, I can't even compare this to anything else. You're in a league of your own. So brilliant.
