About this event:From the crew that brought you the infamous Nymfo from Holland earlier this year we’re proud to announce our 2nd international coming this summer.
Never before in Ram Records’ 25-year history has a story as unique and exciting as Bensley’s unfolded. No previous releases. No previous DJ shows. The then-19-year-old Canadian sent a demo to Andy C’s label and was signed exclusively soon after. He exploded onto the Drum & Bass scene in 2015 with an album that turned heads and received critical acclamation throughout both press and radio. With support from the likes of Zane Lowe, Mistajam & Friction, his debut release ‘Fandango’ made its mark and secured Bensley a spotlight that would cultivate an illustrious music career.
As an accomplished saxophonist influenced by jazz pioneers like Dave Brubeck & Charlie Parker, it’s clear to see how Bensley’s wide range of influence and strong classical foundation allow him to flourish in electronic music. His compositions capture the essence of everything that’s exciting in Drum & Bass and beyond. Instantly resonating yet sounding like nothing you’ve heard before, each Bensley production conveys a contemporary energy and dynamic that’s immediately distinctive.
Bensley’s namesake has only grown, with the producer becoming a pinnacle part of leftfield DJ sets and symbolising the next generation of the Ram Records roster. He’s solidified his style through a series of impressive single releases including ‘Tiptoe’, ‘One Last Chance ft. Skyelle’ & ‘Under the Sunshine’, as well as official remixes for heavyweights Flux Pavilion, Camo & Krooked and Azari & III.
In 2018, Bensley aims to broaden his repertoire and cement his place in the scene, demonstrating this with dancefloor smashers ‘Ascension’ & ‘Do It Again ft. Armanni Reign’.
Catch him live at the re-launch of Adrenaline Café in Fourways with supporting acts Glitch, Shuga and more. Final DJ line up to be announced in September so keep tuned to our social links.
