London-based emcee Benny Diction and Melbourne-based producer Able8 bring you Over Here, the first single from their forthcoming collaborative album, tentatively titled A2B.
Over a beat that combines the ‘true school’ sampling ethics of classic hip-hop with the sensibilities of modern electronica, Benny displays the witty, intricately-woven rhymes that make him one of the scene’s unique vocal talents. The result is a jazzy, upbeat banger that you can either relax or move to. The video, edited by Dave Silver (who has previously worked with the likes of Beardyman and the Foreign Beggars), compliments the light-hearted, loose feel of the track perfectly and reflects the fun the crew had in putting it together. Expect more from Able8 and Benny Diction in the coming months.
For all the producers out there, if you want to put your own spin on Benny’s vocals the acapella version of Over Here is there for you to get busy. The winning remix will feature on the Benny Diction & Able8 album when it drops next year. Also… for any MCs wanting to bless the instrumental version of the tune, go head! The guys would be happy to hear you do your thing on it. Submissions to be sent to: email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
