Milez Benjiman

Biography

Fused with glorifying melody, touched with conscious lyrical power and “Sent to hook you from root 2 roof-top…totally leaving you wanting more!”, Milez Benjiman explore beats, rhythms and song-poetry that tell stories of a social nature with a serious overtone of heavy slide-style dubsta vibez!

Milez Benjiman comprises of three members Gerd, Delgui & Colonel Red who came together in 2004 and set straight to work on their aim of bringing the grind and excitement of true soul music at its best to the people. In the Dutch trio’s own words “Milez Benjiman is a sonik sounding stomp of cyborg funk! ” Gerd, Delgui & Colonel Red combine their writing and production talents, bringing together their experience and a wholehearted desire to create uplifting dancefloor music on one hand, then on the other, they concoct a sultry evocative atmosphere that never fails to reach a true soulful climax.  Feel Glorious is an album reminiscent of the old Parliament/Bootsy electric crunch-funk sound but with an air of cheeky electronica bubbling up through the layers bringing a concrete, yet spiritual feel. 

Chop That Wood, the lead single taken from the album received a massive response, receiving rave reactions from the likes of Gilles Peterson, The Nextmen and other high profile DJs it has graced dance floors worldwide, this is from Benjamin Bernstein who reviewed the album on the Tiny Mixtapes site: “Chop That Wood” gets my vote for the Best Dance Single of the Year, achieving an effect more in sync with Deerhoof’s drunk-funk than Parliament’s tighter brand. Already circulating iPods for the last five months, “Chop That Wood” is exactly what the electro-dance world needed to hear. The bass is wet, the vocals are loud, and the goofy synthesizers create an appropriately postmodern version of Parliament’s Bernie Worrell.
