benlem – suspended


At just 26 years old, benlem has already made waves in the hip-hop scene. His beats and rhymes have been featured on BBC 1Xtra’s Introducing Rap Cypher in 2023, and his talent as both a rapper and producer is evident in every track he releases. Based on an island with a rich history of folklore, benlem draws inspiration from his surroundings, infusing his music with a sense of mystique and creativity that sets him apart from his peers.

“Suspended” is not just a song; it’s an experience. Inspired by the intriguing local tradition of placing granite seats on chimneys to welcome resting witches, benlem weaves this theme of witchcraft and otherworldliness throughout the track. The result is a boom bap-style piece that combines wobbly, vintage jazz chords with hard-hitting drums and bass. The energetic beats and experimental sounds create a dark yet enthralling atmosphere that pulls listeners into benlem’s world.
