Benny Diction is here with the first release from his Facepalm/ Brainwave? LP which is released on Boom Bap Professionals. For this track, Schweppes, he links with EF Knows and Oliver Sudden over a soulful Ro Jista production with a smoth vibe, plenty of strings and an old school vibe.
Boom Bap Professionals present 'Eventually', the 2nd single from the Benny Diction and Able8 album 'Life Moves' (BBP20). Over Able's uplifting, multi-layered production, Benny details the hard work and dedication that go into pursuing your passions, which many will be able to relate to no matter your chosen field: "He keeps traipsing on this expedition / Though his feet are aching from the endless missions".
'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.
What do you get when you mix a Nottingham-born-rapper with wit and lyricism? Nothing actually. But if there was some kind of grandiose prize for a Nottingham-born-rapper with wit and lyricism, I'm sure Benny Diction would make decent candidate. If you are unaware of whom Benny Diction is, where have you been for the last two years? He currently promotes and co-hosts the monthly hip-hop night "Fat Gold Chain" alongside Solocypher in London. Which is arguably one of the best live hip-hop nights in the London Scene.
Innuendo, the twenty-five year old Liverpool rapper has just released his brand new seven track EP entitled 'Off The Cuff EP'. The talented 25 year old first released his debut album 'Deep Breaths' in August 2008 and more recently dropped his first EP 'Soz Abar Me' in November of last year. His music has been well received from DJ's, press and media as well he's been supporting some of Hip-Hop's biggest names such as the legendary The Sugar Hill Gang, as well as US acts such as Jungle Brothers, Ugly Duckling and Brother Ali and a string of well known UK names such as Klashnekoff, Durty Goodz and many more.
