Astigmatic Records is releasing a mixtape by Bennelux, called Old To The New, this July.
Bennelux is a producer duo made up of Benncart (London) and Lux Familiar (Poland).
Pulling inspiration from the late juke/footwork legend DJ Rashad as well as 90’s hip-hop from New York, the mixtape draws deeply on the four elements of hip-hop culture.
‘We wanted to go back in time and create something completely fresh and unique moving it to the current fast-moving field of juke and footwork descending from Chicago. Most of our songs started from samples that were previously being used in some of the classic hip-hop tunes that shaped our musical taste.’ – says Benncart
The majority of the project was recorded in 2014 the year DJ Rashad passed away. On the mixtape, you’ll find two tracks that are self-devoted to the legendary Teklife crew producer, including “Moment of Silence” which premiered in 2016 on Soundcloud, taking by storm the footwork community.
Before Old to The New drops on July 17th listen to the exclusive premiere of the track ‘We Gonna Make It’ on our SoundCloud page.
