Beni

This Summer Beni will continue to reign the dancefloor supreme with a new monster slab of black plastic, 'Maximus' featuring vocals from the mighty Sam Sparro.

?Who put the FUN in ACID-FUNK? you ask? The answer is: BENI DID.
A low-slung exercise in dark and dirty arpeggiated sleaze, ?Maximus? marries a sparse bubble-groove that creeps up behind you and licks your ear with a very ?purple? vocal performance by Sparro to devastating effect. The resulting track is something akin to 'Kiss'-era Prince and friends dirty dancing at a Toga Party while ancient Rome burns down around them.

On the flipside Beni and Nicky Night Time give 'Maximus' a night-time re-dub rubdown, taking the track away from the creepy funk freak and towards a straighter slammer jammer, favouring blatant dancefloor manipulation over the subtle and the sexy.

Also featured (and included on the next Kitsune Maison 7 installment) is 'Fringe Element', which encapsulates the feeling of surfing on a shooting star like never before, with Beni sitting proudly at the controls. An electronic orchestra of descending basslines, vocoder snippets, bleeps and acid squeaks, ?Fringe Element? caps off another compelling chapter in Beni?s lifelong voyage through dance.

After the cover of his first EP "My Love Sees You" made by Genevieve Gauckler, his new 12" is illustrated by French artist Andre

Beni

?Qui met du FUN dans l?ACID FUNK?? la reponse est simple : BENI!

Decadent, Dansant, Chantant, Maximus n?est pas sans rappeller le Prince de la grande epoque qui se serait perdu au milieu d?une orgie romaine!

On retrouve aussi une version dub frenetique que ne renierait pas les fans de Breakdance. En guest, le tube ?Frige Element?, issu de la compilation Kitsune Maison 7, qui marque un nouveau chapitre dans les aventures Dance et Electronique de Beni.
