Beautiful kick & bass-heavy triphop by BenOaks featuring ethereal vocals by Ganou (West Chester, Philly).
‘PALATiNE’ beastcoast boombap + trap + dub BEAT TAPE by BenOaks
Mixing throwback, soulful boombap with modern trap and EDM with reggae / dub & triphop / acid-jazz / downtempo (plus a bossa nova jawn), BenOaks releases a surprise EP PALATiNE for the Holidays 2022!
This time of year can be incredibly triggering for folks who had a difficult childhood. For those of you who were blessed with a loving family, cheers! please say a prayer for those of us who were traumatized by the holidays as kids.
Peace & many blessings to you & your family,
get some ‘SoulFood’
Feed your Spirit with ‘SoulFood’! The third of BenOaks’ lofi / boombap trilogy released in the past year. Following ‘Gemini Vibes’ & ‘Lofi Dreams’. This album of jazzy, funky, soulful triphop instrumentals & lofi beats is very hopeful & less melancholy than ‘Lofi Dreams’ & ‘Gemini Vibes’ even though it was recorded mostly in May of this year when BenOaks was very suicidal. He later received professional help. After intensive therapy this summer, Benjamin Oaks has made a full mental health recovery thanks to regular community service, a home-made food diet, regular spiritual practice, and a loving home.
Help support Ben’s work of producing indie artists by downloading ‘SoulFood’ on Bandcamp! ‘SoulFood’ drops on all the streaming services on Samhain 2022 (10/31/22)

the latest triphop from The Numinous feat. 66notes
I’m excited to share two new acoustic based triphop tracks from The Numinous – a triphop / electrosoul / grime / urban electronica / alternative hiphop / PBR&B music project (and production team) from artist/songwriter/rapper/singer/producer 66notes & I. This project also features midwest songbird Devy Dev Dev & rapper/producer Daytym fka LDK fka Lawrence Day-Knightly.
The 2 new songs, ‘The End is Here’ and ‘Neighborhood DBoy’, sound like they’d fit in right along the debut album by The Numinous Chapter Zero.
The soundscape returns to an atmospheric, drone acoustic guitar & piano based instrumental. Unlike the powerful, epic heavy synth based grime (trap + grime + crunk + EDM + electronica + detroit techno) sounding work of the past year from 66notes and I’s ALLiWANT sessions and similar bass heavy work from my upcoming BASSisOurWeapon solo LP.
And there is also an actual b-side with similar sounding synths from the ‘Chapter Zero’ (song) instrumental sessions with V1TAL & V!CE called ‘Beyond the Frame’ which was previously unreleased.
We’ve got some more news from The Numinous–
- 66notes just released his latest solo album Fade to Grey. Available on all major retailers like Amazon at the end of the month. Pre-order now!
- Daytym fka LDK is working on his debut solo album! Available this fall. Listen to his album #12Arrows with music by BenOaks.
- Stay tuned for a new stripped down jazz funk track from Devy Dev Dev coming soon!
Before we let you go, checkout this new track from Devy Dev Dev & Daytym produced by yours true.
