Ben Sterling announced as First Act to release a Solo EP for Josh Butler’s Origins Rcrds


Founded just 8 months ago, Josh Butler’s Origins Rcrds imprint has undoubtedly made its mark on the industry since its launch with releases from the likes of Todd Terry, Darius Syrossian, Bontan, Marshall Jefferson, Santé and of course Butler himself across its first four releases. Still in its debut year, Origins has become a vital stop off point for lovers of authentic house music, and following the label’s first Beatport No. 1 earlier this year through Butler and Bontan’s ‘Call You Back’, the flourishing imprint returns this June to welcome a rising fresh talent to the roster, UK DJ and producer Ben Sterling.

The EP is opened by ‘Besides Me’, a blooming house cut guided by crisp drum licks, resonant chords and fellow UK talent Jacquie Smith’s warm, soulful vocals, before ‘Come With Me’ lays the focus on precise organic percussion patterns, infectious vocal hooks and suspenseful snare rolls to reveal a production destined for sun soaked terraces across the summer months ahead. Last up, ‘Basement’ takes cues from its title and raises the tempo, employing a series of snaking sub tones and shuffling hats to shape up an impressive debut offering.

Ben Sterling ‘Besides Me’ is out on Origins Rcrds on the 30th June (Beatport) / 14th July 2017 (General), before Ben drops a Free Download ‘Toot Toot’ which you can grab here

Grahame Farmer’s love affair with electronic music goes back to the mid-90s when he first began to venture into the UK’s beloved rave culture, finding himself interlaced with some of the country’s most seminal club spaces. A trip to dance music’s anointed holy ground of Ibiza in 1997 then cemented his sense of purpose and laid the foundations for what was to come over the next few decades of his marriage to the music industry.
