London based "professional doodler" Hattie Stewart transforms banal day-to-day imagery with humoured magazine vandalism and mischievous character illustrations. Through various collaborations, the rising artist is cementing her name in the art and fashion world. Having recruited her dark cartoony quirk for Beni's forthcoming album campaign, we were curious to find out how much of this ink reflects her personality.
When did all of this doodling begin? I imagine you weren't too attentive during school.
I definitely got distracted easily and did spend a lot of my time doodling in the corners of notebooks.
Set your eyes to stun with Ego's optical overload of Love On the Run. Not one to do things by halves, the Australian DJ/visual artist spins the colour palette into another dimension with tripped out effects and choppy cuts.
Beni's EP, backed with remixes from Riton and L-Vis 1990, is now available to UK and European fans via i-tunes and other good digital retailers.
Beni reveals some more thunder to coincide with today's EP release. Sharing the same vocal talents as Love On The Run, Summer's Gone sees Prince Terrence in step with the track's cold, techno heart. A sinister dark alley acid workout. A sounding of the siren to the underground resistance.
Bookending the four track EP is Riton's remix, "a frantic affair of warped vocals and jabbing synths that's set to send adrenaline levels skyrocketing" (Groupie).
Man on the decks Beni is back with a new single 'Love On The Run', out Nov 29 (AUS), Dec 2 (UK/EU).
The dancefloor jam will released as a double A-side with new song 'Summer's Gone', both backed with two remixes - one from UK legend Riton and the other from Night Slugs alumni L-Vis 1990. The latter premiered on Mixmag today.
Catch Beni at one of the below East Coast DJ dates next month.
Sydney dance music dreamer Beni returns to the floor with a new EP on November 29, led by the prized future house jam Love On The Run.
The double shot Love on the Run / Summer's Gone is produced by Kim Moyes (The Presets) and features Prince Terrence as guest vocalist. Terrence lends a familiar sound to the EP, after his collaboration on House Of Beni's cut Last Night. The EP comes backed up with remixes from L-Vis 1990 and Riton.

As we near the end to the Sneaky Sound System 'From Here To Anywhere' chapter, we think it appropriate to go out with an almighty bang. So here it is, a special remix package for their live show favourite, 'Friends', out July 20 (AUS) / July 23 (EU/UK) / July 24 (USA).
'Friends' is the quintessential Sneaky sound. Big drums, bigger synths and Miss Connie leading the entire thing like an angel with her halo in the wash. An ode to past-lovers it's one that will keep you firmly planted on the dance floor until sunrise. With remixes from a swag of talents, this release is by far the standout of the album.
After two US tours, producer and DJ Beni is back on Australian soil and gearing up for a string of dates in support of current single 'Last Night'.
The 'Last Night' EP is out today worldwide, and includes the #1 Hype Machine-charting remix by bromancer Brodinski, plus reworks by Oliver $ and Waifs & Strays. Get your copy of the full remix EP via iTunes US, iTunes GB, iTunes AU, Amazon, Beatport.
