Bass music icon Benny Page has announced his new single, ‘Party With You’ featuring Sweetie Irie, to be released by High Culture and Rise Artists on 29th March 2015 and premiered by Mistajam on BBC Radio 1. Following on from the success of ‘Champion Sound’, his previous hit single, Benny Page has been widely celebrated for his work, noted by his first live concert being sponsored by DJ Mag at The Jazz Cafe. Achieving over sixty national spins in two months, ‘Champion Sound’ was favoured by Annie Mac (BBC Radio 1), Mistajam (BBC Radio 1), Rodigan (Radio 1Xtra) and Don Letts (BBC 6 Music), alongside a video premier on Noisey and other publications. The critical success of ‘Champion Sound’ culminated in Benny Page winning a BMA award for “Best Video” and was followed by an exciting signing to a brand new label for his upcoming album.
‘Party With You’ champions Benny Page’s signature reggae bass fusion sound. Featuring vocals from UK reggae legend Sweetie Irie, notable for his classic remix of ‘Clint Eastwood’ by Gorillaz and pulled together by a lively brass section, infectious Drum and Bass groove and deep flowing tones of Sweetie’s vocals, this song epitomizes the uptempo feel of a Drum and Bass rave with its catchy hooks and warm production. With an accompanying music video that captures the energy and intensity of the track, ‘Party With You’ follows UK Raise It Up, a Croydon based collective of moped riders recently famed in Vice’s “Moped Gangs of London” documentary, as they travel to the legendary biker hangout Ace Cafe, performing stunts along the way. Included in last year’s success was Benny Page’s debut performance at Glastonbury Festival, with the festival itself describing it as “a complete teardown”. Coupled with the launch of his “Benny Page Presents” live events in April, this year is sure to cause an even bigger stir within the music industry.
Following ‘Party With You’ there will be an array of remixes covering all the usual BPMs featuring on a dedicated Remix EP that is due for release in April. Also in the pipeline is Benny Page’s hotly anticipated debut album, mostly recorded in Jamaica and featuring previous singles ‘Champion Sound’ and ‘Hot Body Gal’. This upcoming album will bring his authentic and rootsy sound to a new level and will boast collaborations with international reggae stars including Beenie Man, Popcaan and Assassin.
