Benji Bars: Roots of Keysound

the screen

So, quite out of the blue, Benji Bars dropped a "Roots of Keysound" mix. To me, Keysound Recordings has had three main phases: the first, when the label was an outlet for music by Dusk + I; the second, when we expanded it to immediate friends (Skream, Starkey, Scratcha, Kowton, Grievous Angel, LHF etc...) while we wrote "Dasaflex", and where we are now, with the 130 new wave.

Benji's mix mostly rolls through the first phase. Dusk and I started making music together in 2001 and released our first track - that Benji opens with - in 2005. If this is the first time you've encountered these sounds... welcome :).
