With “Hitman,” Benga perfectly balances his soaring synth melodies on top of that violently heavy bass line we’ve come to expect from this UK legend. The song settles into a solid groove that is both ominous and easy-going at the same time. With the same craftsmanship displayed in the electronic standard “Night,” Benga uses juxtaposition and variety to create an audio environment that is beautiful, but unsettling. ‘Hitman’ shows us why Benga is one of the best in the game.
