The 10 Best Pop Song Hooks, according to Jessy Lanza
Banshee remains something of a mystery in the UK club music landscape. Having bubbled up through the Internet for his sliced-up R&B-meets post-dubstep-sounds (we once described his remix of Sully’s ‘Concord’ ‘like he met Enya on a comedown and they’re sailing down a lazy river’), he found a guest slot on Zombys ‘Ultra’ album and, in turn, Zomby remixed his ‘High Let Me Fly’.
He’s been away for a minute since then, but recently dipped his head above water, dropping a four-tracked EP ‘Thought Bubbles’ via Goon Club Allstars (a fitting home for his cross-pollinated sounds), which repurposes vocal snippets rooted out during deep YouTube wormholes.
Banshee’s Dummy Mix is as nebulous as his own elusive presence. Slotting UK drill beats next to Mariah Carey, interspersed by the roaring sounds of the ocean, it’s a sweet, smooth ride through some left-of-centre sounds, much like a YouTube dive you might make. Press play below, and find the tracklist after the jump.
