* Benny Tones is a Wellington (NZ) based producer and engineer.

* Benny’s solo album ‘Chrysalis’ was released on BBE in 2012 . It was the product of 4 and a half years work and served as Benny’s introduction to the world as a producer and beat maker. The album features a diverse host of vocal and instrumental collaborators including Fat Freddy’s Drop’s front man Joe Dukie, Shapeshifter’s Devin Abrams and Sam Trevethick, Electric Wire Hustle’s Mara TK and many more.
* Benny’s exquisite production is the result of hundreds of hours clocked up in the studio over the years and perhaps an upbringing in an environmentally conscious commune in the beautiful Golden Bay area of of New Zealand. He returns this year with two new singles ‘Maybe In The Stars’ and ‘Time’, backed up with a a rare version by french mystery man Blackjoy and a lo-fi remix by Glenn Astro + IMYRMiND.
