▲ BENNY PAGE
Heavily inspired by the bass lines of dub music, ragga jungle and Hip Hop a Benny page production does not go unheard in today’s ever changing bass music culture. Over the last decade his music has seen airplay on major radio stations such as BBC Radio 1, 1xtra, Kiss FM, Choice FM and Rinse FM etc. He has also played a definitive role in shaping the sounds of the UK’s drum and bass movement.
He’s collaborated with some of the most exciting producers and vocalists in the industry. From his crucial remix of Gyptian’s “Hold You” to his work with the likes of MC Spyda and Topcat, he has taken his brand of dubwise dnb to audiences across the globe. With remix work under his belt for major record companies such as Sony, Universal and London Records to name a few, he has been able to work with major artists like Jessie J, Tinnie Tempah, Misha B, Snoop Lion, Arlisa & Nas and has established himself as an internationally acclaimed artist.
He is currently preparing his 1st studio album being recorded in both the UK and Jamaica. The eclectic sounds of the album range from Dancehall to Trap, Reggae to Drum & Bass and Dubstep, and is being voiced by Jamaican vocal legends including Big Youth, Beenie Man, Spice, Popcaan, Protoje and Assassin. It’s a new sound that will cross cultures and fan bases between JA and the UK, all culminating in a carnival style, high-energy, Jamaican-infused stage show with support from a number of artists.
