Heavily inspired by the bass lines of Drum ‘n’ bass, Ragga, Jungle, Hip-Hop and Dub, Benny Page has played a definitive role in shaping the sounds of the UK’s Drum ‘n’ Bass movement and his name has become synonymous with tight production, heavyweight dance-floor tracks and clinical mixing skills.
Storming onto the scene with his 2006 anthem “Turn Down The Lights”, he has gone on to release a slew of seminal ragga jungle cuts, as well as numerous well received productions across the dance music spectrum.
Benny has collaborated with some of the most exciting artists in the industry. From his crucial remix of Gyptian’s “Hold You” to his work with the likes of MC Spyda and Topcat, he has taken his brand of dubwise dnb to audiences across the globe. With remix work under his belt for major record companies such as Sony, Universal and London Records to name a few, he has been able to work with major artists like Jessie J, Tinnie Tempah, Misha B, Snoop Lion, Arlisa & Nas.
His own label High Culture Recordings, exemplifies Benny’s ability to move effortlessly through the different sounds of UK electronic music, much of the labels output so far has been refreshingly diverse. Tracks such as “Raggamuffin”, “Stamina” and “What Must I Do” draw influence from the current UK funky, house and dubstep movements, while the latest release “Top Rank Skank” sees a return to classic Benny Page with its bouncy reggae backing track and huge vocals from the one Mr Williamz who is another artist to watch out for on High Culture.
