Artist To Check Out: Ben Hobbs - 'Cold Sweat' (Single)
|Photo by Mike Massaro|
South London producer/multi-instrumentalist Ben Hobbs is a fond example of 80s revolutionising. 'Cold Sweat' navigates through a hazy 80s art pop framework to come out the other side and find itself still firmly in a very contemporary and desirable 2016.
Ben's brooding, soulful vocals take centre stage as lavish instrumentation and dazed synths bounce the tone back and forward between lazily stupefying and urgently vulnerable. This is a track about realisation. About untethering yourself from the ties that bind you, remembering your strengths and putting them into action.
Words of Karla Harris
