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.

A quote I spotted today, worth keeping in mind:
"My grandfather used to say that once in your life you need a doctor, a lawyer, a policeman and a preacher but every day, three times a day, you need a farmer."

These farmers need our helpwww.getup.org.au

A bunch of quiet farmers are becoming a group of unlikely activists - ready to do anything to protect their land and water from a fossil fuel giant. Now they need us to stand with them and chip in to support their bold efforts.

Perhaps, and if only perhaps, they could have re-thought an outdated pre-civilisation attitude against gays before the need arose to enforce the One-Child Policy. Where do vast governments find such great thinking.... :)

Timeline PhotosBREAKING: Environmental activist Jonathan Moylan stays free! >> http://ab.co/1rggQ9P

Last year, Jono drew international attention to the role ANZ play in funding destructive projects like Whitehaven Coal's Maules Creek mine. He faced up to 10 years jail and $765,000 in fines, but today walks free with a suspended sentence.

In taking action against the destruction of our environment, climate and future, Jono stood for all of us. This is great news - but protecting the world around us should not be a crime. #standwithjono
