Benny Diction: Facepalm / Brainwave? (Stream)

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.

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

Corners: Corners LP

A great debut from a great group of established MCs, who have come together to form something of a UK supergroup. Beit Nun, Benny Diction and Deeflux have all been familiar names on the scene for years and have made some classic tracks as their own entities, but Corners may be their best work yet, as the combined power of the three creates something a little bit special.
