Benny L - Thunder/Bitter Sweet [APORN063]
As home to artists like Xilent, High Maintenance, James Marvel, Dub Fx and more, Shimon’s label always produces quality music that the audience loves. Drum & bass producer Benny L is the latest name to join the roster with APORN063, Thunder/Bitter Sweet.
South London’s Benny L is coming off the back of his successful Walrus EP, also on Audioporn, as well as remixes for Mozez and Dub FX. On this latest release, he continues to explore new areas and new visions, taking you further into his take on the d&b sound.
Thunder starts off slowly, establishing itself with a silky, sliding synth line, with ominous sounds forming a background. The beats are rolling, the bass menacing, and the feeling one of compulsion to dance. Let Benny L take you into his world, of large soundscapes and urgent drums & bass. The producer keeps things tight, but with enough expression to put his point across. Destined for the dancefloor, Thunder is also considered enough for listening at home or on road. Essential new music from Audioporn and Benny L.
Bitter Sweet is a colossal, epic tune, which starts its journey with deep, space age bleeps, before building up. The delayed drop sees the bass come to the forefront – prepare to shock out once it hits. Humming away like some sort of futuristic helicopter, Benny then brings in some old skool samples and ringing cymbals. This one’s got it all, guaranteed anthem status. Capturing all that is good in terms of funk, attitude and appeal, Bitter Sweet is set the take the scene by storm. Benny keeps the flow into the second drop, with that bassline filling you up once again.
Make sure you’re a part of APORN063, a firm statement of intent from one of the hottest labels out there.
