Review of Jasper Leyland 'Capsize' EP from The Wire magazine:

Jasper Leyland is the alias of Norwich based producer Jonathan Brewster, whose pieces derive much of their charm from his meticulous laptop explorations of extended sonic periods. The title track on his debut release builds up a gentle forward motion through the slowly mutating repetition of a series of chimes; the faint sounds of bird calls and a sequence of tight rhythmic pulsations give the piece a lot of its character. The other three cuts on this EP show a similar precision and focus in their thoughtful development, so that even the false ending on closing track 'Copper' works well for him.
