Benny Diction and Able8 - Life Moves LP [Boom Bap Professionals]

Benny Diction and Able8 – Life Moves LP [Boom Bap Professionals]

'Life Moves' is the brainchild of prominent London-based MC Benny Diction and prolific Australian beats producer Able8. The two met at a Melbourne hip-hop night in 2011 and have been working together since. Both established artists in their own right, they have combined to turn hip-hop on its head and create something that stands out from the usual format. Able8's signature sound combines the world of dusty vinyl samples with heavy bass-laden electronic sounds and swinging drums, providing the perfect backdrop for Benny to paint his intricate, tightly-woven rhymes. The result is an exciting mix of classic hip-hop with a futuristic, off-kilter sound.
