Thought Benoit might be new to us, the young Colorado-based producer has a pretty good resume dating back to his Shreveport days, and comes with a crew. Part of the Forward Momentum Collective with Calvin Hobbes, our homie Run DMT, and many more, this southerner turned mountain man has a thick sound and an impressive edge that caught our ear.
Today we're premiering the title track from Anderson Benoit's Violet Sound EP, the rest of which is dropping simultaneously. We hear the Bassnectar infuences, but there's something darker, rougher, and more sinister brewing. There's mad potential not only in this epic lead single, but in the rest of the EP, as well, which begs further inspection. This may be the first we're coming across this young talent, but rest assured, it's not the last.
Catch Benoit at Boredomfest alongside Sayer, Toadface, The Widdler, and more this May.
