Benny Loco’s Set EP is coming out tomorrow, and since the release date falls 2 days prior to my birthday, I consider it as a gift. This is not the first time we mention this kid (we loved his remix for A.T.T.I.C and reviewed it few months ago).
Among his influences you could find the obvious gods, Kraftwerk, Tangerine dream, and J Dilla as well as Mux Mool, Eliot Lipp and Mike Slott. Set is the proof (if the ATTIC remix didn’t convince you) that BL could really make some dope atmospheric beat heavy melodic shit. He says…”This EP has been the culmination of work beginning earlier this as a follow up to my first LP, Just Some Beats, Vol. 1. It is my hope that it will give my listeners a window into what is to come from Benny Loco. This EP begins the transition from Just Some Beats to my forthcoming 2012 LP, Rise”…..
BL is not unfamiliar to the Electronic music scene. During the last 6 years he has been sharing the stage with the likes of Michal Menert, Dark Party, Paul Basic, Mux Mool, Eliot Lipp and The Coop to name but a few.
He would be playing a record release show with D.V.S* – former Boulder resident and acclaimed musician now living in Brooklyn (1320/Daly City) and Paul Basic (Pretty Lights Music) in Boulder, CO tomorrow at The Mountain Sun.
the record will be available for DOWNLOAD at his Bandcamp page
