Benoit B eases us into a world of eerie synth-pop textures, hypno-industrial oddities, electroid dynamics and hip-hop breaks gone astray. The result is a supremely delectable head trip to get loose to, 100% true to the man’s retro-futuristic Bauhausian blends. Grab a pint, breathe out, submerge.
With their catalogue sitting now richer of five releases and having featured contributions from the likes of DJ Overdose, N1L, Tom Dicicco, Mathis Ruffing and label captain himself Benoit B, Berlin-based
Mathis Ruffing ‘Celeste Undressed’ – featuring Boysnoize affiliate Strip Steve, works a fine balance between African polyrhythms and a velveteen lo-fi house boogie, exuding its particularly rousing tropical feel throughout the grooves.
