Roaming party animal Beni celebrates the release of his new 'Protect / Can't Hide' EP in Australia tomorrow (14 July in the Uk), packaging some of his best work to date with versatile remixes from Prince Club, Indian Summer and wordlife. Losing sleep in anticipation, he's cooked up this playlist of club heaters, touching on the menacing 'Can't Hide' and 'Protect's 90s vocal house. Feel the energy and read on as we get to know this magnetic character.
Sydney dancefloor dreamweaver Beni drops a new track in the form of Protect. From the forthcoming Protect / Can't Hide EP (out July 11th Aus / 14th UK on Modular), the lead track features vocals by Antony & Cleopatra, the duo of Londoner Anita Blay and Alexander Burnett, known for his writing with Flight Facilities and Digitalism.
London based "professional doodler" Hattie Stewart transforms banal day-to-day imagery with humoured magazine vandalism and mischievous character illustrations. Through various collaborations, the rising artist is cementing her name in the art and fashion world. Having recruited her dark cartoony quirk for Beni's forthcoming album campaign, we were curious to find out how much of this ink reflects her personality.
When did all of this doodling begin? I imagine you weren't too attentive during school.
I definitely got distracted easily and did spend a lot of my time doodling in the corners of notebooks.
Set your eyes to stun with Ego's optical overload of Love On the Run. Not one to do things by halves, the Australian DJ/visual artist spins the colour palette into another dimension with tripped out effects and choppy cuts.
Beni's EP, backed with remixes from Riton and L-Vis 1990, is now available to UK and European fans via i-tunes and other good digital retailers.
Beni reveals some more thunder to coincide with today's EP release. Sharing the same vocal talents as Love On The Run, Summer's Gone sees Prince Terrence in step with the track's cold, techno heart. A sinister dark alley acid workout. A sounding of the siren to the underground resistance.
Bookending the four track EP is Riton's remix, "a frantic affair of warped vocals and jabbing synths that's set to send adrenaline levels skyrocketing" (Groupie).
Man on the decks Beni is back with a new single 'Love On The Run', out Nov 29 (AUS), Dec 2 (UK/EU).
The dancefloor jam will released as a double A-side with new song 'Summer's Gone', both backed with two remixes - one from UK legend Riton and the other from Night Slugs alumni L-Vis 1990. The latter premiered on Mixmag today.
