Heavily inspired by the bass lines of dub music, ragga jungle and Hip Hop a Benny page production does not go unheard in today’s ever changing bass music culture.
Over the last decade his music has seen airplay on major radio stations such as BBC Radio 1, 1xtra, Kiss FM, Choice FM and Rinse FM etc. He has also played a definitive role in shaping the sounds of the UK’s drum and bass movement. His name has become synonymous with tight production, heavyweight dance-floor tracks and clinical mixing skills.
Storming onto the scene with his 2006 anthem “Turn Down The Lights” he has gone on to release a slew of seminal ragga jungle cuts, as well as numerous well received productions across the dance music spectrum.
Having cut his teeth in to Shy Fx’s Digital Soundboy imprint, he has collaborated with some of the most exciting producers and vocalists in the industry. From his crucial remix of Gyptian’s “Hold You” to his work with the likes of MC Spyda and Topcat, he has taken his brand of dubwise dnb to audiences across the globe. With remix work under his belt for major record companies such as Sony, Universal and London Records to name a few, he has been able to work with major artists like Jessie J, Tinnie Tempah, Misha B, Snoop Lion, Arlisa & Nas and has established himself as an internationally acclaimed artist.
His own label High Culture Recordings, exemplifies Benny’s ability to move effortlessly through the different sounds of UK electronic music, much of the labels output so far has been refreshingly diverse. Tracks such as “Raggamuffin”, “Stamina” and “What Must I Do” draw influence from the current UK funky, house and dubstep movements, while the latest release “Top Rank Skank” sees a return to classic Benny Page with its bouncy reggae backing track and huge vocals from the one Mr Williamz who is another artist to watch out for on High Culture.
He is currently preparing his 1st studio album being recorded in both the UK and Jamaica. The eclectic sounds of the album range from Dancehall to Trap, Reggae to Drum & Bass and Dubstep, and is being voiced by Jamaican vocal legends including Big Youth, Beenie Man, Spice, Popcaan, Protoje and Assassin. It’s a new sound that will cross cultures and fan bases between JA and the UK, all culminating in a carnival style, high-energy, Jamaican-infused stage show with support from a number of artists.
