In the run up to the July release of their ‘Life Moves’ album and mini-tour this Summer, Australian producer Able8 and London-based lyricist Benny Diction bring you the ‘Spring’ EP.
‘Spring’ consists mainly of songs written and composed between 2011 and 2012. It begins with ‘Lost It’ and ‘Popularity Contest’, the first songs the pair ever recorded after they met in Melbourne. These are followed by the title track, a moody head-nodder awash with haunting vocal samples, chaotic chords and crashing cymbals. The listener then gets a taste of the summer with the upbeat banger ‘Holiday Snaps’, which Benny wrote during his time in Australia.
In keeping with the theme of travel, ‘Land & Sea’ is a frantic posse cut, enlisting a wealth of UK emcee talent and featuring fellow Punning Clan members Tony Skank, Louis Cypher & DJ Rasp. As well as showcasing Able8’s versatile production nous, the EP ends with the Polaak and Luca Brazi (Granville Sessions) remixes of the single ‘Over Here’.
Spring marks the transitionary period between Winter and Summer – as Benny puts it, ‘the world spins into a time of opposites / Like mirrors reflecting optimism with a sinister edge’. This EP also represents a time of development for the duo, as they prepare for the arrival of the ‘Life Moves’ album

I wrote this beat about 4 months ago at around 3AM, headphone styles. The next day I discovered Black Cracker over the internet through one of his video clips, from there I emailed him asking if he wanted to collab. He was down for it so I sent his this beat, and within day or 2 he sent me back vocals. Since then I've been playing the track out a bit, but only just got around to mixing it. I would describe this particular tune as some sort of...Crunk-Step . Hope you like!
