Kent teen Vasser's "Whatever You Want" marks him out as bedroom production's brightest new light

Half-German, half-British vocalist Vasser grew up out in a sleepy Kent suburb - put aside any images of a solitary post office and The Dog And Duck pub though, Sam Breathwick has birthed a world bursting with imagination and colour under his alter ego.

Breathwick's oil painter mother inspired him to pick up the guitar aged nine; he quickly stuck up an affinity for jazz before discovering a wave of electronic beatmakers such as Jai and A.K. Paul, Jon Hopkins and James Blake, who's own dislocation and solitude struck even more of a chord.

'Whatever You Want' is his first full offering: a weightless, chiming experiment in melting the synthetic with the organic. All tenderly plucked strings, dusty percussion and rippling bursts of sampled beats, it's got all the hallmarks of a bona fide silken slow jam and marks out Vasser as the next big name in bedroom production.
