Did you also noticed my new post last week? If not, then you can find it right here: New Reggae Instrumentals for January 2017
Shape of You – Ed Sheeran (Benn-i Dancehall Refix)
Last week I was listening Spotify and selected a random playlist with some new and trendy music (Check out the Benn-i Playlist on Spotify). While I was working on a website of a client, the new song “Shape of You” by (fellow Ginger) Ed Sheeran passed by. I was surprised about the simplicity of the song and the dancehall and tropical house elements. So immediately I wanted to remix this song.
I came up with a dancehall, reggaeton basic beat which was produced at 100bpm in Studio One. To be honest it didn’t took me that long, I spend most time on the side chaining and compression.
I used the original song of Ed Sheeran as basics for the mix in Virtual DJ Pro, this is my #1 tool for mixing. So I turned down the low frequency a bit and synchronized the original beat to 100bpm. And the results are amazing.. 🙂

Next to this awesome remix, im working on a brand new “Shape of You” riddim. Which will be released very soon! I will inform you through a new blogpost about the progress. In the meantime check out my Instagram channels, where i post regularly:
Last week I felt really proud receiving some likes from the original Buju Banton, Raging Fyah, House of Shem and Mr. Edley Shine (from Born Jamericans). Its so cool, cos im a big fan of those artists (since i was 12 years old).
New Logo Video Reveal for Benn-i
I also have another great thing to share with you all. Last week I was working on a brand new video who reveals my logo in gold. Its also part of my YouTube rebranding strategy, as I will continue to upload more YouTube video’s soon on the official YouTube channel of Benn-i Productions.
I made everything myself with Adobe After Effects, based on a premium template from Themeforest. The effects are also mixed with Virtual DJ and I combined multiple effect sounds into 1 sound that fits perfect to my logo. See for yourself:
The description for my channel was also updated:
