It's always a pleasure to hear new material from one of my favourite labels, Svetlana Industries and with the forthcoming release by BNJMN.
Keeping with the more techno influenced sound as heard on the other BNJMN releases earlier this year on Rush Hour, Blocks and Plastic World, and like them features well produced futuristic techno that never suffers from sounding dated or like much else around.
The EP is not at all similar sounding Detroit stuff though as Ben's diversity and talents in a range of genres are shown off once again. Having done beats as Jackhigh, guitar based stuff as Singing Statues and techno with these and other BNJMN tracks, he then adds 2 step garage to the cv with 'In Out' and the Burial-esque 'One Sea' which I know for a fact pre dates many other artists who have taken this sound as inspiration by a good two years. He is definitely not a follower of any fashion.
Brand new remixes come courtesy of Lukid, whose video is featured below and is so good I hear it's getting a public screening as a work of art, and Kelpe who goes all deep, dark and aggressive.
