Mr Benn - Police

Mr Benn


Square One

Released: 14th June 2010 | 5 track dancehall ep
Everyone's favourite ragga hip hop skanker is back with another brilliant release on his very own Square One Sound label that's sure to make your batty wind. Mr Benn has been buried in the studio, recording day and night in readiness for his debut album release later this year. As anticipation grows for the main event, he brings us a taste of things to come with his new single 'Police'. A fusion of dancehall and hip hop, Mr Benn has bubbled up a stuttered riddim, horn led, low end theory for long time collaborator Blackout JA to flow over in his inimitable style, creating a call to arms in response to the ever growing divide between the public and local constabulary. Remix action comes courtesy of two of the finest producers to drop onto our radar in recent times. UK's The Magic Fly comes correct with two remixes, both of which bring that boom bap, bass heavy style that's bound to make your hands clap. Canadian beat smith Jpod turns it on it's head, lacing the vocal with a broken beat, wonky dancehall riddim that sounds like nothing else you've heard. Both remain true to the original but give it fresh legs in the unique style of each remixer. Mr Benn's debut album will be dropping in shops this Autumn and features collaborations with Blak Twang, The Ragga Twins, Serocee, Brother Culture and The Good People's Emskee amongst others to bring you that true sound of Bristol niceness. As well as toiling long and hard to complete the long-player, Mr Benn has been busy of late remixing Horace Andy and Lady Chann and collaborating with Mad Decent's South Rakkas Crew and DJing all over the place. It's hectic round his way to say the least...
