Sonic Dragon is very proud to present the latest album from Australia's master of psychedelic funk, Benza. "Schwarze Now... The Defender" is Benza's third album and his most mature to date, solidifying his reputation both as a versatile musician and a quality producer.

Opening with the funky "Pythagoras", Benza re-introduces himself with his signature sound. A spacious track, it bounces along with a subtle groove as squelchy synth lines weave in and out. Moving into "Mechanism" and we're presented with a electro-tinged bass line, while gentle melodies introduce a more progressive feeling into the sound. "Acting in Concert" opens with an almost tribal percussive line, and leads us into a deep, emotional track.

With "Fabric", the funky percussion continues, with melodies and electro pads helping us get in touch with our percussive soul. The next track serves as a swirling overture to "The Switch", a slight departure from convention as Benza experiments with a more breakbeat orientated sound, while still maintaining his identifiably Benza sound. After this brief interlude what better way for us to return to form but with Benza's new Eurovisionary remix of "The Wolf", from his first album. Irreverence brings us back to the more refined Benza, the squelchy melodic lines and groovy bass lines mix with vocoded vocals creating a nice harmony.

Next up Benza shows us more of his versatility with his bouncy, break beat Glandular remix of the groovy hit "Everyone's A Pornstar", from Melbourne's Kind Of Pluto. This is followed by "The Collector", probably the most upbeat number on the album, where a pushing kick meets with a pulsating bass line and Princess Bride samples, to create a dance floor friendly and definitively Benza tune. Last up we have "Sunday", a very refreshing end to the album, which begins as an ambient excursion and slowly moves into an uplifting, melodic number that picks up the pace yet without becoming too dominant - the perfect end to the Benza experience.



Go, Ben, Go! Saw this piece of news and just had to forward it on to the isra masses. Best of luck, and can't wait to hear it.

For sure one of the best Australian artists ever, just hope this one will be less full on than the last "Retrofuturism" album (somehow i doubt it )           "My single one to cross the ways that have heart, any way that has heart. That way I cross, and the only test that is worth is to cross all its length. And that way I cross watching, watching, out of breath"

I like very much the "mechanism" track. It's the top song on this album i think. Pretty solid production
