Bass music artist Benny Page recently announced his new single, ‘Party With You’ featuring Sweetie Irie, to be released by High Culture and Rise Artists on 29 March 2015 and premiered by Mistajam on BBC Radio 1. Following on from the success of ‘Champion Sound’, his previous hit single, Benny has been recognised for his work, which was noted by his first live concert being sponsored by DJ Mag at The Jazz Cafe in London.
Achieving over 60 national spins in two months, ‘Champion Sound’ was favoured by Annie Mac, Mistajam, Rodigan and Don Letts, alongside a video premier on Noisey and other publications. The critical success of the track culminated in Benny winning a BMA award for “Best Video” and was followed by a 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 D&B groove and deep flowing tones of Sweetie's vocals, this song epitomises the uptempo feel of a D&B rave with its catchy hooks and warm production.
With an accompanying music video that captures the energy and intensity of the track, the song 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 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 should eclipse the success of 2014.
Also in the pipeline is Benny’s debut album, mostly recorded in Jamaica and featuring previous singles ‘Champion Sound’ and ‘Hot Body Gal’. This upcoming album will boast collaborations with international reggae stars including Beenie Man, Popcaan and Assassin.
