BENNY L - 'APPLEROIDS' EP [APORN067]
Benny L is back to set the scene on fire once again, with his new EP, 'Appleroids'.
APORN067 blasts on all cylinders for the producer, who has made the label his home. South Londoner Benny easily demonstrates his unique style across four tracks and a radio edit, with all of the music a perfect fit for Audioporn.
The title track is simply huge. From a sharp, no-holds-barred electronic opening, to an oppressive, urgent beat, this one means business. Feel the hum of the bass as Benny drops it in, and you know this one’s headed straight for the brain. Things build up slowly, but the effect is full at the second drop, where things come to a head. Full on, uncompromising music for the new generation.
'Bullfighter' sees Benny inject some old skool breaks into the intro, before womping bass fields come into dominate proceedings. This one’s close to the ground, and you’ll hear the streets all over it, as Benny draws on his urban influences for a rolling, serious hulk of a tune.
'Warm' comes in two forms, both of which feature Dub FX. The full lick digs deep, journeying into the underground as Dub raps over the top of some really sparse, low beats and spacey effects. Mini-breaks are thrown into the mix to set things off, as the producer shows off his range and power. The radio edit cuts straight to the chase and Dub’s rhymes, keeping all of the essential elements of the tune, just in a more accessible form.
'On The Job' is just ice cold, cutting through a movie sample before laying the opposition to waste. Perfect kicking drums and freezer-sharp bass, this one’ll be a favourite on the dancefloors. The 'Appleroids' EP is a fine addition to the Audioporn catalogue, one which’ll please fans old and new alike.
Shimon’s label consistently puts out the finest in drum & bass, dubstep and electro and has done for almost a decade. Home to Xilent, High Maintenance, Shimon himself and many more. Audioporn is always a label to watch.
