Very happy to see Benny Diction return with a new solo project. I’m pretty sure Facepalm / Brainwave? is the Corners MC’s first solo effort since his Able8 produced, Oak Dreams EP, which he released in 2019. This time round he has gathered together an assortment of producers and guest stars to assist, resulting in a very well crafted album. Production credits include regular collaborators, Oliver Sudden and Deeflux, as well as beats from the likes of Tom Caruana, Krang and some self-produced cuts too. The features include some more familiar names, with Mnsr Frites and Beit Nun both making appearances, alongside cuts with Doberman, EF Knows and Eliza. You can stream the album below, then head to Boom Bap Pro to grab a download.Continue reading “Benny Diction: Facepalm / Brainwave? (Stream)”

The long awaited collaboration between BBP’s Ash The Author and Soulful Chemistry’s Krang, made a surprise appearance yesterday.

Ideal Sunday sounds in the new video from Benny Diction, as he celebrates the release of his latest album. He has a habit of hooking up with producers that fit his style like a glove and this time round it is Blue Buttonz, who provides some lovely jazzy breaks for the LP. The album is called Button Up and is available to download now over at the BBP Bandcamp.
Another dope release from the Boom Bap Professionals label is on the horizon, as Elliot Fresh & Fish release their collaborative project Mirrors. Continue reading “Elliot Fresh & Fish: Rats”

I’ve been meaning to post this since it came out a few weeks back. Another solid release from UK MC Benny Diction and another solid release for the Boom Bap Professionals label, who are already making 2016 a good year for rap. Benny teams up with Beit Nun for The Best, with a nice laid back beat by Dusty Ohms and Lilac Qi. This is the next in the BBP Singles Series and you can cop a free download over at website.
