Following our parties with Woz & Jakwob we are pleased to present our first in our semester 1 series.
James Wright (Overground)
Bringing the old school rave scene to the new school dance setting.
Guaranteed party starter, SWAMP81 producer, Outlook resident and Fabric regular – Benton can be found showcasing his work across radio shows including RinseFM, Kiss100, Radio 1 and festivals such as Boomtown, Glastonbury and Horizon.
The most reliable purveyor of good times, Benton is not afraid to get the dance started and can easily be caught off the beaten track showcasing his true and extraordinary dark South London DJ knowledge.
A respected dubstep break away, he has now matured to pioneer his own sound, stirring primitive jungle beats with his own inescapable basslines, placing him firmly at the forefront of today’s modern flavour.
Not content with stopping there, he has engineered his own label – BBS, a SWAMP81 sub label along with Benny ill and Loefah, releasing tunes such as The Callin’ and KT2. Benton’s chest rattling euphoria is set to take over the summer.
His track 'Hype (Funk)' gained Bleaker a release on DJ Haus's label Unknown to the Unknown, a personal favourite label at XY HQ. Along with Gang Fatale has seen this Edinburgh local lad gain support across the industry and helped secure a well deserved spot on multiple Boiler Rooms and a US Tour. Don't expect this to the be the last time that Bleaker will appear behind the XY signs!
