WHO the hell are Tennis?
TENNIS is the on-going project of Ben Edwards (Benge) and Doug
Benford (si-cut.db). The album has already been played on
XFM's Flow Motion, Radio One's One World, Radio 3's Mixing It
and other stations across europe and the US, gaining also very
good reviews in Spex, De:bug, Overload etc.....a night of
cutting-edge funky digital glitch and dub sounds is guaranteed.
(btw Pole recently asked them for a track for his ~scape label)
This is the one major London gig before their european tour. Tennis
also have new tracks coming up on fylkingen (sweden), spa.rk (spain)
and expanding (uk).
Ben Edwards, Tennis player, unseeded ball boy.

TENNIS : europe on horseback [bleep 03]
Tennis, an ongoing London collaboration between Ben Edwards (AKA Benge)
and Sprawl man Douglas Benford (AKA SI-CUT.DB), enters the world of pop
n'glitch dub confidently among the upper ranks. When 'Civic Halo' pipes
in with its cheeky bass, ghostly echoes and slurring bleeps, the obvious
comparisons with Pole, Delay et al rush to mind. No bad thing, but be
assured 'Europe On Horseback' rides its very own trail through the
electro-acoustical hinterland, stopping but briefly at points of
reference along the way. The best tracks seem to be stockpiled at the
end, with the ambient electro dub of 'Port Helix' and the blissful
'Debonair Content' proving that playing tennis without a racket is much
more fun. >RECOMMENDED< FJ
