Brad Baloo (The Nextmen)
Music for the perfect party whether a sweaty styled-out club set, colossal festival-smash or a crafty roof-top hottie beardy rebrand, doesn't come from a swipe right to cutesy playlists from app-land capitalist pop-culture debris. This is serious shit. No one wants their good time held to ransom by some faux-faced numpty. They want their blocks to rock, they want their limbs to go wavy, they want the good groove to soak into their bones until yes is the only answer to every question. Hold yourself to higher standards people. We'll be dead soon.
Reared on a tasty diet of Aswad, The Specials and King Tubby, 90s hip hop, plenty of jungle and hi-life rhythms, the musical influences behind DJ / producer Mr Benn’s sound are vast and wide but always rooted in a passion for the heavy, heavy bass that his home town of Bristol is so renowned for.
His genre-hopping DJ sets and own productions have earned him a loyal following, global gigs, collaborations with the likes of Massive Attack’s Daddy G (whom he plays alongside as part of DJ collective, Bristol Hi-Fi) and legendary UK rapper Blak Twang, and a whole host of remix honours including Horace Andy, Cutty Ranks, Monkey Mafia, Dreadsquad and Joe Driscoll.
