Ben Gomori, label head of Monologues Records and Sterns Edits, might be one of the busiest men in the industry today. When he’s not providing us with the freshest dance music through his two labels, Ben can be seen spending his “leisurely” time hosting podcasts, radio shows, and video series like Turned On, Monologues and RecordReplay. If that wasn’t enough, Ben puts on club night fundraisers for Help Refugees and the highly esteemed album listening sessions Pitchblack Playback. We honestly do not know where the man finds the time, but he does.
Given his absurd work rate, we were not surprised to learn back in July that Ben Gomori also produces under the previously anonymous moniker G. Markus. Mr. Gomori’s reasoning for starting the project was “[…] to make deeper, freakier, trackier stuff than I was known for under my own name. It was a breath of fresh air starting from a blank canvas and sending music to labels anonymously with no preconceptions, having no social media and so on.”
Whether he’s releasing music under his own name or G. Markus, one can argue that Ben has a knack for making edits that rivals any of his contemporaries today. And this unique skill is on full display throughout his latest track titled “Red E,” in which he takes on an 80’s classic. Using the infectious vocal sample as a centerpiece, Ben chooses to pair it with an equally catchy assortment of lively piano house melodies and cheeky synths that are reminiscent of greats like Kerri Chandler.
A surefire way to start any party, DJs and producers alike would be negligent by not adding this chune to their collection. “Red E” along with “Cum Thru” are out today and can be purchased here! Get your copy now!
