Bristol’s Mr Benn makes his debut on Nice Up! in anticipation of his soon-come full length album. Toddla T’s main hype man and dancehall don Serocee steps up on this, a heavy reggae / dubstep style track which he takes even deeper with tales of poverty, police brutality and torture, but managing to triumph over all – possibly one of his most introspective vocals to date.
Remixes come from fellow rising star King Yoof whose ‘Back To Hackney’ EP on Sub Slayers set the bar for the jungle-breaks or ‘140 jungle’ sound – which he showcases perfectly here with some chopped amens, heavy bass and old school flavour. Next up Tomb Crew give the track a UK Funky style re-dub, lacing it with a haunting melody line and screwed up vocal chops.Rising Star - Mr Benn ft Serocee by NICEUPrecords
