In My Street by Willis Anne (New York, New York)
Willis Anne has already made an impression. The timbres and general aesthetics of nearly every track are infecting and compromised in placement. In My Street might be KSL’s most realistic attempt at providing something normal; and while its minimality may lead those unfamiliar with his work wanting more, those well versed in the KSL mantra might actually find the straightforwardness refreshing. @Dingusonmusic

Beloved Boy by Willis Anne (New York, New York) *
In an electronic genre that’s gone soft for catchy melodies and epic swells, few challenge the norm to bring something unique. Beloved Boy by Willis Anne (formerly Kick Snare Leave) restructures its instrumental entrances and plays a similar layering game that ultimately is the definition between chaos and order.

‘The Sun’ by Kick Snare Leave (November 4, 2011)
Ironically, ‘the Sun’ is the most challenging track off the Kick Snare Leave debut. Providing a dark base, it isn’t until nearly a minute in that you start to feel hor jarring this track can really get. Almost unlistenable at first, ‘The Sun’ actually does a pleasant dynamic maneuver to solve its own confused state.

EP 2012 by Kick Snare Leave (November 4, 2011) *
Kick Snare Leave is a modern Moby (calling it here first), carving a new electronic path that I’d be happy to split an eight-ball too. It sucks that the best comparison I can make is to James Blake, because then you just think what I’m really getting at is that it’s a rip-off. But that’s not the case, it’s just as daring, just as informed, with a life of its own.
