Benny Blanko 8ft in the Air
- Words: Christine Hsieh
- Label: Playhouse
Honey-glazed deep house shoulders up to hip-hop, laidback robo-funk segues into snappy house, clean click-house dissolves into hazy downbeat-does Benny Blanko fancy himself a master of all trades? Or is he simply a musical schizophrenic? One thing is for certain, however-the Homestyle label boss is clearly adept at working within established stylistic parameters, and he injects each track with buoyancy and flair. Though far from inspiring or innovative, 8ft in the Air is a gleeful little album, with enough variety and a surfeit of solid tracks to keep interest alive.
