30-06 Summer vibes with new Benny Sings remix by Pat van Dyke
After American producer Mndsgn remixed the song ‘The Beach House’ a few months ago, today it’s Pat van Dyke’s turn. His sunny and laidback remix of ‘Black and Blue’ is out now!
Benny Sings has been quite busy recently. In the past months he has travelled to the United States two times to perform multiple shows in Los Angeles and Brooklyn, during his visits he also did studio sessions with, amongst others, Mocky and Mayer Hawthorne. The new remix is the result of one of his visits to the USA where Benny met producer and multi instrumentalist Pat van Dyke.
Pat’s music has been praised by tastemakers and DJs around the globe such as Gilles Peterson, Bobbito Garcia, & DJ Spinna, as well as being featured on such TV networks as VICE, HBO and FOX. On his version of the song ‘Black and Blue, coming from Benny’s latest album STUDIO, the producer combines the vocals of the original song with live guitar and bass supported by the rhythms of his analog drum machines.
”I first heard of Benny Sings only recently when we both appeared on Jakarta Records’ compilation; ‘Winter In Jakarta’ in late 2014. (….) I made an effort to go see him when he played in New York and reached out to him about the potential of working together. When I was asked to work on a remix from ‘Studio’, I was excited to get the chance to re-work ‘Black and Blue”
The remix is now available on all streaming and download platforms.
