Press Release :
Debut label release from Melbourne's BENNSON delivers on all fronts and highlights his versatility within different genres. Title track 'Coconut Beach' is a storming House groove with Nile Rodgers-style guitars and a big, big organ hook. On the flip 'Morning Rain' takes us into jazz land with crisp drum programming and a beautiful vocal. 'Oceans & Whispers' is an engaging, cinematic piece of future-lounge that rounds out this very consistent debut. Melbourne Producer/Musician, Bennson (AKA Ben Grayson) began his musical apprenticeship at an early age, copping the rhythmic and harmonic approaches of jazz luminaries such as Kenny Barron and Herbie Hancock. By his mid-teens he was already holding down piano gigs with Melbourne's jazz heavyweights. Taking the step to production was inevitable - and Grayson has displayed his versatility with projects running the full spectrum of modern dance music. Between producing and releasing music under the monikers of Bennson, NoComply (Equatorial) and playing hammond organ in Australia's premier DeepFunk outfit The Bamboos, and regular DJ engagements - Grayson continues to keep pushing his abilities and re-defining the role of a modern 'musician'.
