Roots Manuva – Witness (Benji Boko’s Blues Cut)

Posted in News with tags , , , , , , on September 25, 2013 by E.N.

Benji Boko - Remixes Vol.2Beat maker Benji Boko is releasing his eagerly anticipated album, ‘Remixes Vol. 2” this October.

Not to be regarded as just a ‘DJ’, Benji Boko displays a unique talent, describing his show as “completely improvised, off the cuff, live remixing.” His live set-up resembles something from the flight deck of the Star Ship Enterprise; in which he has the ability to re-ignite any tune, taking his audience with him, into new dimensions.

‘Remixes Vol.2’ is an energetic piece of work, drawing from influences across the board. The album opens with a remix of one of his favourite hip hop tracks of all time – Jay-Z’s ‘99 Problems.’ Boko twists the track into an infectious club banger infused with a deep blues vibe which hints at the music he was bought up on. The album then continues into a re-edited remix of Little Dragon’s ‘Little Man’ which sees Benji collaborating with elusive producer Boy In a Movie. Following on to feature remixes of Roots Manuva, Daft Punk and Lazy Habits, the album ultimately climaxes with his explosive remix of Missy Elliot’s classic, ‘Lick Shots.’ A slick album exploring everything from blues, soul, hip hop to funk, the collective piece is sure to keep you glued to the dancefloor.

Things started getting out of control for Benji Boko back in 2010 when he guided 17,000 revelers into the New Year at the London O2 Arena, alongside Deadmau5, Justice and Calvin Harris. Since then, things have continued to escalate – his debut album “Beats, Treats & All Things Unique”, was released worldwide via Brighton based label Tru Thoughts and included collaborations with Maxi Jazz (Faithless) and Ricky Rankin (Roots Manuva).

Karin Park – Fryngies
State of the Eye Recordings
5th March 2012

Following the release of her UK debut last September, the critically acclaimed ‘Tiger Dreams EP’, Sweden’s Karin Park returns with ‘Fryngies’ the first single off her forthcoming album ‘High Wire Poetry’.

Hailed as one of the most original new voices out there with ‘Fryngies‘ Karin artfully marries her unique vocals, at once both powerfully strong and yet so delicately fragile, to a soundtrack of icy electronics, sparse dubstep influenced beats and rattling, haunted percussion.

Working with acclaimed producer Christoffer Berg (Fever Ray/The Knife/ Little Dragon), and State of the Eye’s Barry Barnett, the result is truly leftfield electronic pop music that builds and builds, step by step, to a taut emotional climax.

As with ‘Tiger Dreams’ Karin has again hand picked some of the most exciting and respected producers around to re-tool ‘Fryngies’ for the dancefloor, and first up is dubstep phenomenon Funtcase, whose hair-raising remix has already found favour with Radio 1’s Zane Lowe who premiered the track on his show in December and has been viewed on YouTube more than 600,000 times.

Taking things in another direction entirely Portuguese rising star Moullinex flips the script entirely, dropping a refreshingly bright and upbeat house mix that is already being strongly supported by the likes of Dimitri from Paris and Mighty Mouse.
