THN063 >> JEFF BENNETT - LOWDOWN EP
      [05.10.2004 | RELAXED TRIBAL DUBHOUSE]

Jeff Bennett from Malmö, Sweden really needs no further intro-
duction after 30+ releases on labels like Treibstoff, Pokerflat, 
Morris Audio, Episode, his own Imprints Kung Fu Dub, Maskros 
and many more. Reknown for his unique blending between tribal 
dub with pumping techhouse elements, Jeff Bennett’s sound is 
full of influences by the Plastic City/Pokerflat definition and 
Reggae/Dub artists like King Tubby, Lee Perry or Mad Professor - 
indeed Jeff Bennett is an artist with more than a remarkable 
biography and one of the sureplayers in the Dubhouse genre. To 
emphasize his open minded future thinking, Jeff did his MP3 
Debut with the Canadians from Epsilonlab, bringing on their 
first release. Just 3 months later, Jeff pumps out 3 new 
bringers on Thinner accompanied by a remarkable remix of 
Berlin’s finest Dennis DeSantis. 

The EP rolls off with the Slow-Mo Dubhouse of “Messages”, a 
slowly evolving track with a rooty bassline and widely halled 
claps, that reminds of earlier C*Rock aesthetics. The title 
track “Lowdown” takes off the pace with an offset voice put 
within a chilly dubbed-out lounge environment, whose laidback 
beats are perfectly relaxing and bar-filling. “Contortion” is a 
classy Bennett track with familiar dub-chords and punctuated 
percussion drops, to remind the aesthetics of earlier days. 
The Dennis DeSantis remix of “Messages” is undoubtley another 
damn nice DeSantis Remix, with it’s Detroit Strings, fat claps 
and synthesized melodic chords building up an advanced beautiful 
scenery.

Talking about Jeff Bennetts future thinking, he is one of the 
first Labelowners turning his former Vinyllabel “Kung Fu Dub” 
into a Digital one for now and the next time. He thinks Digital 
labels will continue to establish themselves in the near future, 
thanks to the growing support both sides from the technology as 
the growing community of Digital DJs. Jeff hopes that the Digital 
Label will ultimately become a valuable business model one day, 
however he plans to continue a Vinyl pressing from time to time. 

Jeff continues: “MP3 Shops like Nufonix, Beatport and Bleep are 
only in the early stages – just like MP3 Shops will be sort of a 
reinvention of Vinyl. However the detailed development will take 
a natural process of maturing until they get a wider acceptance.” 
Bennett compares the current situation of arising MP3 Shops with 
the birth of the online recordstores 5-6 years ago. Therefore he 
actively works on new ways of distributing his own labels releases, 
same as he wants to start using digital devices such as Traktor and 
Final Scratch for the future. Jeff recently became daddy, so he is 
placed within an environment that gives him the inner peace and 
strength to model his own future from his place in Malmö. Due to 
his tireless work and efforts, we can be sure that Jeff Bennett 
will continue to be at the front of the dubhouse movement from 
both his creative output same as his ideologic positions.
