Dubliner Ross Fortune produces music under the name Benny Smiles, and has teamed up with Ham Sandwich’s Niamh Farrell for ‘Moonlight’ the standout track from his debut EP Sunshine/Moonlight. The EP is a perfect demonstration of Fortune’s background in classical music coming to the fore as organic electronica. He uses Aphex Twin as a comparison, but for me, it’s more like the synthy goodness of the Postal Service. Have a listen below.
The EP is launched at the Workman’s Club in Dublin on Thursday 23rd August from 8pm.
