Secret Recipe self-releases his first full-length album, The Cookbook. Formerly known as Intellitard, Secret Recipe is a whole new concoction created through the depths of his genius and ever-glowing brain. Through his frequencies, Benji Hannus reveals psychedelic escapes, sparkly fusions, melodic glitch, & eerie-intergalactic purple bass – a taste so fresh you melt through slurps. A genre-bending mixologist, this rising artist is turning heads all over the industry; experience a phonic and polychromatic frequency through 12 tracks of weird squelches, get-downs, and creativity. Revealing above, sick new artwork by Sponge!
The illuminating yet mysterious fresh bass venture of Secret Recipe has left many intrigued as he creates vivid frequencies – an expansion of the mind made possible through twisted and thought-provoking fusions, a newly formed imagination – it’s an elegant dessert. Bizzare yet rhythmic leads make for an inventive composition as he swerves through deep 808’s, synth crescendos, and wobbly sonic expositions. Spoken Bird is featured in this album, as they collaborated on the track, “Good Question” – a psyhop, lazer journey through future. The ever-talented CloZee, hailing from France, also hopped in on the cooking with a smooth remix of one of my favorite tracks, “Interstellar Symphonies” – it’s trippy, percussive – it’s psytrap & glitch-hop imagination.
I aligned with Benji last February during his “Mental Vacation” release, and met him in ATX for a show of his! Aside being an eclectic producer that stands out in the underground bass movement, Benji is a hard-working individual with a great sense of humor, mad respect! Secret Recipe is also Co-Founder of a weekly called “Wormhole Wednesday’s” which takes place at the New Parish venue in Oakland, California, it’s a dope experience every single time – creative explosions! Newly signed into Street Ritual Agency, his representation is cooking up a solid tour in 2016, so make sure to catch him near your city! Whether you want a new discovery, a jam to groove to while you cook, or a bubbling taste, this mixologist of bass can cook!
