GET TO KNOW THE NEW ..... BENITO - I'M BUSY EP .....out Feb 21st 2012!!
It was a gloomy start of summer in San Francisco in 2011 when label boss Sam Supa attended a BBQ with a banging sound system in a remote industrial part of town where trolley cars go to die. There he heard lots of great music but it was a tall, skinny kid, with a beanie pushing buttons and making fantastic sounds happen that caught his ears. BENITO hails from SF and makes what we like to call futuristic, beat-driven, space juke or footwork for Martians if you please. Ethereal in nature with minimal drums and imaginative patterns that are other worldly but carried by solid bass. BDR is proud to present 5 tracks by BENITO we feel push things forward. In this banger addicted market we present an EP that you will listen to for years to come. This is the stuff future dreams are made of.......
HEART OF BASS is a non-profit based in the SF Bay Area who does humanitarian work and mobilizes dance music lovers to get involved in fund-raising for social issues. BRAP DEM! Recordings teamed up with HEARTS OF BASS to present: HEARTS OF BASS - I LOVE JAPAN VOLUME 01.
The label contacted various producers asking for tunes. The outpouring was so great the compilation will come out in 2 volumes. Spanning the spectrum of bass music, from Dubstep to Garage to Drumstep to Glitch to experimental bass riddims, there is something for everyone. All money will be donated to the Japanese Red Cross. Volume 01 contains an amazing set of tunes all donated and some created just for this compilation. This is a snapshot of the freshest and most progressive producers up from the underground to the ears of listeners.
The artwork was created by L.A. based artist FARRON LOATHING who donated the piece which will also be made into a limited edition print with all proceeds going to Japanese Quake relief.
