BENNY PAGE announces first ever LIVE show
Thursday 11th September 2014
?If you don't know about Benny Page?make sure you get to know.... We are loving the sound of this?
MOBO Awards (Official)

?They better play this at Carnival or we?ll kick off1?
Noisey / Vice

?This tune is massive!?
BBC Radio One

The single is available worldwide 23 August 2014 on his own label High Culture Recordings and Rise Artists Ltd. This release is revealed after Mistajam?s recent BBC Radio premiere, an accolade following the wave of success surrounding his recent dancefloor hit Hot Body Gal feat. Richie Loop supported by Sir David Rodigan, Seani B and Toddla T across BBC Radio One, 1Xtra and Kiss Fm alongside worldwide festival and club appearances. Champion Sound features Jamaican dancehall artist Assassin, who appeared on Kanye West?s last album ?Yeezus? on the track ?I?m In It? and was mastered at Metropolis Studios by Stuart Hawkes whose previous works include Basement Jaxx, Rudimental and Maverick Sabre.

Benny Page notes his influences were initially drawn from his Dad?s records whilst growing up, listening to Led Zepplin, Black Sabbath to Bob Marley and Marvin Gaye. He started his musical zeal performing guitar and drums in live bands up until when he discovered Electronic music which intensified his passion to build his career as an Electronic songwriter and producer. This led to Shy FX signing Benny Page to his now legendary Digital Soundboy label kick starting his professional career with his 2006 dancefloor anthem ?Turn Down The Lights?. This was followed by an array of seminal ragga jungle cuts, as well as numerous well received productions across the dance music spectrum. Since then Benny Page has produced tracks for Sony, Universal and London Records remixing artists such as Jessie J, Tinnie Tempah, Misha B, Snoop Lion, Arlisa & Nas.

After a number of years establishing international recognition; Benny Page has evolved his sound initiating the start of this unique album project. Benny Page recently spent time in Jamaica discovering first hand the famous rhythms and basslines of the island that are so key to his music. In just over two weeks Benny Page recorded twenty two Jamaican vocalists in what he describes as a musically insightful experience redirecting his techniques into a new sound that he is happy to be revealing. Benny Page?s main objectives on the island was to achieve a more authentic and diverse sound, managing all the studio recordings directly in a more traditional and personal songwriting process. Other Jamaican vocal legends who are set to appear on his forthcoming album include; Big Youth, Beenie Man, Spice, Popcaan and Protoje. Benny Page teamed up with Richie Loop on his first single for the Moombahton driven Hot Body Gal, a hit in Jamaica and continuing to impact worldwide leaving fans eagerly awaiting this highly anticipated follow up.

Already receiving numerous plays on national radio and media attention, Champion Sound displays Benny Page?s production techniques in a new form with his fresh 140bpm sound. The track infuses elements of Dancehall, Reggae, Breakbeat and Drum and Bass producing a high energy beat with a vibrant horn section, graced by the hard hitting vocal prowess of heavyweight Dancehall artist Assassin. Well suited for the summer festival period, Champion Sound has all the ingredients for a sort after summer anthem.

To celebrate the release of Champion Sound. Benny Page has a European launch tour and will be debuting his Benny Page LIVE single launch concert hosted by Mama Group on 11th September at the Jazz Caf?. The new show involves live horns, live percussion, two new MCs and visuals from Jamaica.

Expect imminent updates as Benny Page?s already flourishing career takes a step onto a whole new exciting level.

Looking ahead to the next International Day Against DRM - May 6, 2015

On May 6, 2015, the global anti-DRM community will hold our biggest display of unity so far - the 9th annual International Day Against DRM.

This year's International Day Against DRM featured a variety of events in Brazil, Bangladesh, Portugal, and the United States, and we're planning for 2015's Day to be even bigger.

Digital Restrictions Management gives others unethical control over the digital media that is so important to our culture. People and organizations will deliver this message in different ways on the Day,
from picketing in front of stores that sell DRM-encumbered products,
to sharing articles and graphics, to offering sales on DRM-free media.

Want to be part of this next year? Join the International Day Against DRM 2015 mailing list. We recommend you share your location with us (optional) to get alerts about local events.

Are you interested in running an in-person or online event on May 6, 2015? If so, let us know in a reply and we'll share resources with you when the planning process gets underway. No commitment at all.

Journalists: the unwitting pawns of government cyber warfare

To win at the government's cyber game and to avoid inadvertently becoming a mouthpiece for propaganda, a journalist's best bet is to go gonzo, says innovator and information activist Smari McCarthy in his talk "Lies, propaganda and CyberCyberCyberCyberLOL" at Mezhyhirya Festival in Ukraine, which Wired.co.uk attended.

McCarthy was brought in by the Ministry of Defence last year to help the Defence Academy figure out what their defence policy should be in terms of cyberwar. The end result was a paper that they published called "The Global Cyber Game". It is, says McCarthy, "a laughable document in many ways" and not only because it contains far too many instances of the word cyber. Not many people read it and even fewer people understood it, but that was the intention, he says. They only wanted it to have a certain kind of impact on a certain type of person in the upper echelons of the defence community.

Restoring press freedom in Ukraine with the Yanukovych Leaks

For the last three years in Ukraine, 6 June has been known as journalist's day. Journalists and activists have gathered outside the President Yanukovych's residence, Mezhyhirya, to protest against media censorship. This year, though, is different.

On 22 February, Viktor Yanukovych fled after his presidency came to an end and his private estate in the countryside outside of Kiev was opened up. This year on 6 June, journalists and activists have come together once again, but this time inside the vast residence, where they have set upMezhyhirya Festivalto celebrate freedom of expression and the work of the Ukrainian journalists who fought hard to reveal the economic corruption that allowed Yanukovych to live in luxury.
