- Strength In Life EP
Sola Records | 04.09.2020
One of the fastest rising talents in the UK house scene, Ben Hemsley debuts on Solardo’s Sola imprint with his massive three track EP, Strength In Life.
“So buzzing for this release! It’s my first release with the Solardo lads and I’m excited to get it out! I have a lot of music coming this year but this EP is one of my favourites and the tracks work so well together.” – Ben Hemsley
The record kicks off with the title track, exhibiting Hemsley’s unique ability to craft old school rave sounds and bring them into the 21st Century. The track starts quickly with sirens building the intensity to the drop where the main groove takes over. From then on the track playfully intertwines the groove with elating drops creating a record which sounds every bit as good on the radio as it would in clubs. Next up is The Box where a luring vocal sample combines perfectly with a wide variety of percussive elements. It’s a rhythmic, bassy track that’s as raw as it is refined. The final production on the EP, Vibezilla, has a stand out melody which is formed from screaming synths that twist and turn to provide the backbone of this absolutely killer track.
Picking up support from some of the biggest names in dance music such as Calvin Harris, Patrick Topping, Dom Dolla and more, Ben Hemsley has rapidly become one of the hottest properties in Tech House today. Ben’s skills as a producer really came to light when Repopulate Mars boss, Lee Foss, signed Ben’s debut track, ‘Caress Me’. The track was an instant hit and soon became one of the records of the summer getting hammered in clubs across Europe and North America by Green Velvet, Eli Brown, Michael Bibi and Patrick Topping to name a few.
Showing no signs of slowing down in 2020, Ben Hemsley started off the year with a huge remix of Dombreky’s ‘Trust The Process’ released on Insomniac Records. There’s been no shortage of demand for Ben to play, having previously packed out a number of the biggest clubs in the UK and further afield, culminating with a huge b2b with Patrick Topping for a mouthwatering set at Motion. Since then, Ben has travelled across the UK & EU and played alongside house music royalty such as GreenVelvet, Hot Since 82, KiNK, Alan Fitzpatrick, Skream and more!
