Welcome to Beats by Beat, our mix series for electronic music lovers. Head here if you missed the previous Beats by Beat mix, produced by one of Australia’s most exciting new garage producers, Foura.
James Benjamin is a mixing magician of many music ventures. He dons a variety of hats – working as the Founding Director of collective Crate Mates, runs a music and arts event with 4D mediums through Tesselate, and is the co-founder of Chewin’ the Fat – an event and mental health awareness charity working to create open spaces for the dance community to feel comfortable in a place where people can discuss mental health.
His events have featured some of the best electronic selectors of the country, including DJ Earl Grey, Ziggy Zeitgeist, Otologic, Emma Stevenson and nation-favourite CC Disco.
Listen in for a groovy Friday night of eclectic sounds featuring funk, chill-hop, dubs, electro, classic, nu-jazz, ’90s house and blues, where the more you listen, the move you want to move.
