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.

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."
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.
There have also been bold actions in Israel. A group calling itself Jews Against Genocide has been lighting things on fire in front of Israeli government buildings. The latest move was the burning of a funeral pyre in front of the Israeli Supreme Court this week.
Perhaps, and if only perhaps, they could have re-thought an outdated pre-civilisation attitude against gays before the need arose to enforce the One-Child Policy.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.... :)
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
