Benny L – Route Zero
England has quite an impressive reputation when it comes to providing fresh drum & bass talent, and London-based producer Benny L is the latest addition to the country’s ever-growing list of skillful bass producers.
His latest track, “Route Zero,” truly is a throwback to the golden era of drum & bass, reminiscent of the ’90s. Rather than overcomplicating the track with various experimental elements, Benny has chosen to stick to classical format: crisp drums, a deep, sawing bass line, and intermittent sprinkles of atmospheric chord progressions, which add a sense of darkness and foreboding to the spine of the tune. Another interesting aspect is his clever usage of special one-shot effects, which help make the track ideal for bass music purists.
