Audio Porn Records – Benny L & Shimon – Monsters – [Review]

Audio Porn has been making and producing; and pushing and moving those releases strong and hard for almost a decade now. The seventieth release is a timeless D&B single titled ‘Monsters’ with…

Benny L and Shimon (of the iconic Ram Trilogy crew) who is also the head/owner of the hit-making label; just for one  seriously “mashed-up like potatoes” collaboration that serves a creepy and disgustingly good salad of a jam. Right from the start, the horror approaches the ears with some classic, ghostly sounds like pads and; the speech samples were laid perfectly to add that serious emphasis concerning what the track obviously conveys. How the drops go, and the drum licks at the intervals, are a distinguishing factor. As the horrific hoard of sounds approaches, there comes this powerful horn that just grabs dominance in the track as the monstrous giant amongst the other instruments. The alien bass rhythm follows right there. The whole song in general, is a bouncy tune with a dark groove.

Before pressing play; there’s the single’s cover art to peep which, is admirable in its own sense. It is simply made and, does not really attempt to scare in that expected, serious sense. We took a nice liking to the creativity behind it. Good cover art does play a part in the whole story as well.

‘Monsters’ marks another successful release, clearly bound to another Audio Porn hit thus, joining the long list of achievements that the label has had over the years, since 2007. Indeed an exclusive, original single that has those original roots.
