Hi i'm Ben, I study at Plymouth University in illustration and in my free time, I make Drum & bass/Dubstep. I've done it for about 3 years and i thought it was time for an album.
Utterly Ridiculous is just a fun/ridiculous Dance album, with a range of styles as i pretty much like making different styles of music. It took me about 4 months to create all the tracks, including the mix down and mastering. The Artwork is a digital collage illustrated by myself, if your interested, please click here
Fresh Meat is a bass heavy Dubstep tune that features vocals from me and a friend.
Nirvana is much more chilled than the opening track, a relaxing melody with breakbeats over the top.
Cabella is a liquid Drum & bass tune, which features me on guitar, the song is called Cabella as it was created in the town, Cabella in Italy.
Hunted is defiantly my best track, it really hits hard, its another bass/sub heavy Dubstep track, inspired by Noisia and Neuro Funk Drum & bass music.
Jah Kingdom has come from my love of rave/jungle music, a really cheeky/fun dance tune, it just makes you want to dance.
Starcream is a straight rip your face off Dubstep track, inspired by Pixel Fist/Skrillex.
Badman Riddim is mad drum & bass track hitting at 194bpm so i want to see every raver on their worse behavior!
Euphoria is a big house track, originally a riff i made up on my guitar, inspired by Redlight and Avicii.
Utterly Ridiculous ft. Mika Morgan, originally a cheesy hip hop track, until i double timed it to make a drum & bass track from it, then my brother using his mad guitar skills, solo over it.
Hus has a sick trumpet lead, its really happy tune with a some dubstep to mix it up.
Trapped is inspired by pendulum's old skool sound, meaning bass heavy drum & bass, with some real edgy/dark theme in it. i had real fun on the vocals, distorting them so it sounds like a broken radio signal.
Late Nights finishes the album, taking it down to a nice relaxed state, a real ambient track with a beautiful melody, originally a song for my mum but i stripped it right down, taking out the drums and guitar.
Thanks to Everyone who help me on Utterly Ridiculous, I'm really proud of it, i hope you enjoy it as much it i did to made it.
