Music: Benezer – Slap EP

London-based musician Benezer has come through with a brand new project titled Slap EP. I found out about him through a mutual friend, my partner, who has encouraged me to listen to his take on hip-hop. I’m glad I have because this project is pretty great.

The EP as a whole is trap influenced, with heavy, hard-hitting beats throughout. It kicks off with “Trash,” which is actually my favourite track on the album. The intro has angelic horn leads that add a beautiful, ethereal tone to the track. The beat hits, and Benezer raps melodically, flowing effortlessly over the JDP produced track (who produced the whole project). It’s a personal and introspective record such as on tracks like “Glitter” where he talks about his own mental health and how he dealt with it over the years. He talks about social issues on “Tragedy,” while his usual fun and clever wordplay can be heard throughout tracks like “Creeping” and “Soccer.” Overall, it’s a good, cohesive body of work that showcases his talents as an artist and storyteller.

Listen to Benezer’s new project Slap EP below via Spotify and don’t forget to support! Released via Stay Ultra.

Hey everyone, thanks for stopping by. I run In Search Of Media with the aim of giving a platform to independent beatmakers, rappers and talented musicians. I also hope to make this a home for music discovery, interesting film analysis, exhibition reviews and other interesting content for all of you guys to dive in to. I hope to start a podcast and documentary-style project soon. If you're looking to be a part of this creative project, please go to the contact page and drop me an email, or connect via Facebook, Twitter or Instagram. I also write for 'Music Is My Sanctuary.' Thanks 🙏
