22 Issue 73 / 2015 HOUSE/ TECHNO The Scandinavian DJ/producer with Winnie The Pooh as his logo is shaking things up News BeNji B's XOYO liNe-ups revealed XOYO will play host to Deviation for 13 weeks, from the beginning of April to the end of June. Benji B has curated an impressive selection – highlights include sets from Moodymann, Mark Ronson, Sampha, Four Tet, and Wiley. As the main man said, "The curation will be a statement: acknowledging the DJs, producers and club nights who have influenced me, as well as supporting brand new artists who I believe in, which has always been a central part of the Deviation concept…" The series kicks off with a bang on April 4th with Skepta and a special guest. The next instalment of XOYO's highly successful residency series is ready to go He's been making waves amongst the musician and music critic network for a while now, but Stockholm's very own HNNY looks set to make it big pretty soon. With experience in writing scores for film and theatre, the young Swede has been hotly in demand as a DJ, touring and gigging constantly for the last 2 years. But now, having cancelled tours in both Australia and the US, he's focusing on producing and managing his label Yummy Records. His latest EP, Carefree, came out on Catz and Dogz's Pets imprint in February, and he's readying his debut LP, Sunday, for release this year. For now, you might recognise him for 'For The Very First Time', released 3 years ago and a regular feature in many a DJ's sets, including Breach's BBC Essential Mix. But what's been really tearing up his SoundCloud page recently is 'No', a fantastic house track sampling the much- loved TLC song 'Scrubs', and even 'Sneeze', a hyped-up mashup of a sample from Beyonce's 'Partition'. 'Exactly', meanwhile, is a stunning track featuring a quite genius sample of a distorted male voice singing the refrain from Christina Aguilera's 'What A Girl Wants', "Now I'm thanking you, for knowing exactly". But it's his 2013 Boiler Room set that really helped earn him the attention he deserves; it fully showcases his fresh sound and diverse influences. Despite cancelling the majority of his shows for this year, HNNY will be playing at Corsica Studios on Friday 29th May for popular night Tessellate. Don't miss the chance to see this exciting producer, especially as this gig should be coinciding with the debut LP's release.
