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.

Jake's always been a clever producer and he stays true to form, padding out a tender topline with slowed down breakbeats and ringing chimes

Laidback, crunchy beats under soulful vocals. This is really cool. Sudden end though! Leave me wanting more...
