Bensley releases the third single from his upcoming sophomore album today, ‘Hard Times ft. Emer Dineen'. With the album fast approaching on RAM Records, Bensley works his magic again with a beautifully constructed track that showcases his multifaceted production abilities.
‘Hard Times’ demonstrates why Bensley is regarded as one of the scene’s most exciting and innovative artists, elegantly fusing drum & bass with elements of jazz. The Canadian producer cleverly layers melancholic piano chords with a shuddering bassline, alongside his impressive alto saxophone playing and the rich, soulful vocals of Emer Dineen. It's a departure from RAM's regular ‘dancefloor dnb' output – a softer, more intricate take on a genre which is notoriously hard to experiment with. Bensley has always refused to conform when it comes to the boundaries of drum & bass music, and ‘Hard Times' is a clear sign that he continues to evolve with finesse.
