Beat maker Benji Boko is releasing his eagerly anticipated album, ‘Remixes Vol. 2” this October.
Not to be regarded as just a ‘DJ’, Benji Boko displays a unique talent, describing his show as "completely improvised, off the cuff, live remixing.” His live set-up resembles something from the flight deck of the Star Ship Enterprise; in which he has the ability to re-ignite any tune, taking his audience with him, into new dimensions.
‘Remixes Vol. 2’ is an energetic piece of work, drawing from influences across the board. The album opens with a remix of one of his favourite hip hop tracks of all time - Jay-Z’s ‘99 Problems.’ Boko twists the track into an infectious club banger infused with a deep blues vibe which hints at the music he was bought up on. The album then continues into a re-edited remix of Little Dragon’s ‘Little Man’ which sees Benji collaborating with elusive producer Boy In a Movie. Following on to feature remixes of Roots Manuva, Daft Punk and Lazy Habits, the album ultimately climaxes with his explosive remix of Missy Elliot’s classic, ‘Lick Shots.’ A slick album exploring everything from blues, soul, hip hop to funk, the collective piece is sure to keep you glued to the dancefloor.
Things started getting out of control for Benji Boko back in 2010 when he guided 17,000 revelers into the New Year at the London O2 Arena, alongside Deadmau5, Justice and Calvin Harris. Since then, things have continued to escalate - his debut album “Beats, Treats & All Things Unique”, was released worldwide via Brighton based label Tru Thoughts and included collaborations with Maxi Jazz (Faithless) and Ricky Rankin (Roots Manuva).
Benji Boko has also become a familiar face in the UK with some unforgettable live shows at Glastonbury, V Festival, Secret Garden Party, Bestival and more. He is additionally playing as part of R&B man of the moment, Robin Thicke’s album launch party in New York City, on 4th September and is set to play during the Toronto Film Festival on 7th September. Furthermore his tour this year varies from dates in the UK right the way to Hong Kong. Expect the unexpected.
All this combined with continued support across all three BBC Radio Networks; it comes with no surprise that he has been described by MOBO as “someone who breaks the mould.” Benji Boko and Remixes Vol.2 is going to go global. Grab it for free on 7th October - http://benjiboko.com/
