Beni Lane is in my ears and in my eyes. French producer iZem returns with a new EP on Enchufada (Buraka Som Sistema, T.Williams). The four tunes of Beni Lane have a maximal, globalist flair that befits an artist who has previously released on Soundway. The funky electro-house sounds of his native France mix with club styles from around the world, most notably the Batida style currently popular in iZem’s adopted home of Lisbon. Across the EP these two core genres dovetail while also flirting in breaks (‘Major Stef’), trap (‘Shebeen Chic’) and future beats (the Fehdah-featuring ‘Frikii’). There’s a strong Soulection thing going on here.
