Using a strictly analogue approach, emerging duo Will & Held and their brand of UK electronica is seamlessly in tune with the Vim & Vigour aesthetic, both sides of EP001 -Mend' and -Close' a moody excursion into richly layered textures and dusty electronics.

Vim & Vigour is a new London based imprint focused on producing unique 12" records accompanied by original photography and a series of bespoke films.
