Nearly two years after his last release, Benncart returns with a new mini-album. The eclectic “Excursions” is made up of 9 tracks, which explore different spectra of styles, from leftfield hip-hop to bass music or house. Despite the wide range of genres present, “Excursions” tends not to sound incohisive, as the tracks find their common denominators – calm, laidback melodies, warm synths and loads of crackling vinyl samples. Benncart’s fondness of nostalgic musical past balances well with his fascination of what’s modern, bridging the gap between the two (the housey lead single “Life of Wonders” being a prime example). Benncart enlisted two quests on the mini-lp – Cruz, a Wrocław mc known for his mind bending work with exceptional producer Zaspał, and Joannapple, vocalist from the Poznań based band Donut. The main concept behind “Excursions“, is travelling (and it’s benefits) – be it spending hours upon hours in trains, buses and planes; or the kind that do not require a ticket, albeit brings the traveler closer to the oneself.
