Benny L B2B Shimon

When Benny L witnessed the legendary Dillinja at London’s Cable nightclub he knew he should follow a similar path. He went on to a performing arts academy, learning the trade as well as all that goes in the industry. After being discovered by Audioporn head honcho and pivotal drum & bass player Shimon, his first track ‘Speakers Vibrate’ landed in Shimon’s inbox. The Granulate EP followed suit, as well as the definitive ‘Thunder’ which firmly put him on the map. The release of ‘Low Blow’ on Metalheadz, saw Benny plant a seismic crater within drum & bass. Meanwhile Shimon’s legacy is as old as drum and bass. Whilst tracks like the infamous radio smasher ‘Body Rock’ saw him collaborate with Andy C, he also produced the likes of Titan as part of esteemed outfit Ram Trilogy. Shimon’s standalone releases like Hush Hush and Crossbow saw him meet with critical acclaim across the globe, 2007 saw the birth of his label Audioporn Records. Shimon wanted to push forward newcomers who knew what small steps it took to shape the overall feel of a track. It’s easy to see this reflected in Audioporn’s output.. His influence has seeped into its every page, which is why decades on, he’s still one of DnBs players.
