Benton "We're Both Lost"
Earlier this week, the Wheel & Deal imprint—helmed by longtime Rinse FM jock N-Type—released the debut long-player from London producer Benton. Entitled Reflections, the album is said to position Benton as an artist keen on exploring "dubstep in its purest form, back to the roots." Album cut "We're Both Lost" reinforces that statement, with its methodical dub-wise rhyhtms filled not by bombastic sonics or deeper-than-deep sub-bass, but instead by longing harp melodies and lush string chords. The result is a reserved, yet still very immersive, twist on the building blocks of classic dubstep.
